Miami Dolphins Concept Logo By Addison Foote

The Dolphins recent logo update has been the most drastic of the 4 changes they've made since their original logo was created in 1966. The dolphin is longer jumping, but swimming in front of the sunburst and is also no longer wearing a helmet. I decided to keep the traditional jumping pose of the dolphin and style it similar to the current version. Another change I made was having the dolphin jump through the sunburst rather than in front of it.

The Dolphins logo here is essentially the same as the one I did a year ago albeit a good example of what a difference 5 months of sparingly dedicated time can do to one’s technical skills. The Dolphins had their new logo arrive this year too while I was in the process of making my own.
While I think the new one is a nice rendition, it’s lost a bit of its character present in the previous goofy football-helmet-touting dolphin. I wanted to find a middle ground, after all making a dolphin intimidating is quite the challenge. The dolphin’s shape is loosely in the shape of the letter ’D’ and the colors have been updated to the new ones. I’ve made it look as threatening as I could without it coming off too cheesy and/or ridiculous.
