Dolphins Alternate Logo
The Miami Dolphins have had an alternate logo since the team’s inception in 1966. The original logo was a simple white and aqua dolphin head with two orange stripes on either side of its face. This design remained unchanged until 2013 when the team released a new version of their iconic alternate logo to coincide with their 50th anniversary season. The updated design featured a more detailed dolphin head and three stars above it that represented each decade of the franchise’s existence up to that point.
In 2017, the Dolphins unveiled yet another redesign for their alternative logos as part of an overall rebranding effort by then-owner Stephen Ross and his partners at RSE Ventures LLC. This time, they opted for a much bolder look featuring bright orange accents alongside navy blue and white colors, which has become synonymous with Miami sports teams over recent years, such as baseball's Marlins or basketball's Heat. In addition to this modernized color scheme, they also changed out some details within the actual Dolphin itself; most notably widening its eyes, giving it an even more determined expression than before while also adding additional shading throughout its body, making it appear almost 3 dimensional like never before seen in any previous versions from years past.
Finally, in 2019, the dolphins once again decided to update things. Still, this time instead, opting for subtle changes rather than drastic ones, keeping all aspects from initial designs intact, including colors & shape but simply tweaking small details such as slightly altering eye size & positioning plus adding lighter shades into previously darker areas creating contrast between light & dark sections helping give off even more significant depth perception effect overall thus completing what is now considered one if not THE best looking alternate logos ever created by any NFL franchise today!
