The Carolina Panthers are updating their logo.
The team announced today that it has changed its logo for the first time in the 18-year history of the franchise, with tweaks to the mouth and eye of the Panther to give it a more three-dimensional look, as well as a cleaner, easier-to-read typeface.
“We have one of the finest and most recognizable logos in the NFL and wanted to make it as modern as possible without losing the dramatic essence of the mark,” team president Danny Morrison said in a statement.
Personally, I’d like some NFL team to adopt one of the logo designs at gridiron-league.com, but I like the Panthers’ new logo, too. When LogoDesign.com polled 25 design experts on the best logos in the NFL, the Panthers’ original logo made the Top 10. The new look gives that logo an updated feel.
