Earthquakes Wordmark Logo
The San Jose Earthquakes is a professional soccer club based in San Jose, California. They are one of the founding members of Major League Soccer (MLS) and have had an iconic logo since its inception in 1996. The original logo featured a stylized “Q” for Quakes with two lines that represented seismic activity underneath it, surrounded by laurel leaves to represent victory. This design was used from 1996 until 2005 when they rebranded as the Houston Dynamo and adopted a new logo featuring blue and orange stripes representing energy waves emanating from an orange starburst at its center.
In 2008, after returning to MLS under their current name, the Earthquakes unveiled yet another distinct visual identity that remains today: A white shield with black trim containing three interlocking circles - each circle representing team unity between players on the field; fans off the field; & community within city limits – all unified through a passion for soccer & commitment towards excellence! The top circle contains four stars which symbolize winning championships while below sits an updated version of their original Q mark with slightly more modern curves than before but still retaining its classic shape overall. Finally at the bottom appears red & blue text reading “San José Earthquakes” above two curved lines resembling tectonic plates shifting beneath Earth's surface—a subtle nod towards earthquakes themselves!
Overall this wordmark perfectly encapsulates everything that makes up not only who they are as a team but also what this great city stands for Strength through adversity; resilience amidst chaos; diversity among citizens…all united together by a love of sport + dedication toward success! It's no wonder why so many people have come out to support them over years--their unique brand identity speaks volumes about a character both on-field and off-field alike...and long may it remain so!
