Dallas Cowboys Concept Logo
Dallas Cowboys Concept Logo By Addison Foote

The Cowboys own the easiest to draw logo in all of sports, a simple star. It has been a nothing more than a blue star with the exception of a blue stroke bordering it since the franchise began in 1960. Despite the logos generic simplicity, it is one of the most iconic logos out there. I didn't want to change too much much or too little, so I used the star as negative space inside of a "D" for Dallas.

It pains me to admit that the Cowboys were the first logo where I feel like I nailed the styling of the logos moving forward (it was the first one, period), but I’m a football fan first and a Giants fan second. If I do a shit job of my rivals logos on purpose then I’m a shit football fan and despite my hate for this team goddamn do I respect them. I hope they go under .250 this season. Every season.
The Dallas blue star is up there with the rest as one of the iconic symbols of football. How do you improve upon something so simple? You don’t, but I had this idea and I wanted to try it out, and it worked out as perfectly as I hoped it would. It’s one of the few times where the translation from my mind to execution was seamless (excuse me from blowing my own trumpet I’m just pretty happy with it). Don’t change something iconic if you can help it. The star remains as the focus — all I did was slap Clint Eastwood’s face in there in a way that didn’t interfere with the key shape. It’s stoic and bold, much like the Cowboys’ history itself.
