Mad Dogs Primary Logo
When it comes to professional sports teams, the logo is often one of the most iconic elements. The Memphis Mad Dogs are no exception. Since its inception in 1995, the team has had several different primary logos that have come and gone over time. In this blog post, we will take a look at some of these logos and explore their history and significance to the Memphis Mad Dogs CFL organization.
The first primary logo for the Memphis Mad Dogs was designed by artist Chris O’Connor in 1995 when they joined Canadian Football League (CFL). This logo featured a snarling bulldog with its tongue sticking out wearing an old-fashioned football helmet adorned with two stars on either side - representing Tennessee's state flag. While this design may have been eye-catching at first glance, it ultimately failed to capture what made up the true spirit of both Tennessee football fans as well as those associated with CFL itself; something more unique than just another generic dog mascot image found elsewhere around North America.
In 1996, designer Mark Kostabi created a new primary logo for the team which featured an anthropomorphic bulldog dressed like Elvis Presley complete with sunglasses and guitar - paying homage not only to his hometown but also providing some much-needed character within its branding identity. This cleverly designed emblem quickly became popular among fans across Canada due largely in part because it managed to embody everything about being from “Memphis” while still maintaining relevance within professional sports circles worldwide through its use of classic imagery associated with Elvis himself – such as his signature hairstyle or bright red jumpsuit worn during live performances throughout the late 1950s/early 1960s period.
Finally, after nearly 20 years without any major changes, 2017 saw yet another redesigning effort undertaken by graphic artist Paul Vanstone who aimed to create something truly distinct that could easily be identified amongst other league members while still retaining strong connections to past designs mentioned above. His final product included bolder colors (mainly black & white) along with stylized lettering spelling out ‘MEMPHIS MAD DOGS' surrounding the central motif depicting fierce looking canine head sporting a spiked collar all set against a backdrop of vibrant yellow sunburst shape – thus creating a modern-day version of original concept originally conceived back 1995 era when the franchise began a journey into world competitive sports entertainment industry overall!
