The Minnesota Vikings have announced that they made some tweaks to their logo, nothing serious, but enough that it does count as changing.
Per the Vikings website:
So what’s different?
There are really five subtle enhancements to the Norseman:
1) Horn Shape
The shape of the horns has been adjusted and the shading in the horns has changed.
2) Horn Base
The base of the horn now resembles the horn on the players’ helmets.
3) Face Detail
Thicker lines have been added to the mustache and face.
4) Vikings Gold
The Vikings Gold is now brighter and less brassy.
5) The Braid
The braid has been shortened, resulting in a reduced logo height.
The Vikings also said that the logo transition will not happen overnight, and that you will be able to see both logos during the transition period. Merchandise with the new logo will be available starting in March. Their reasoning for doing this is that they are trying to get a new stadium, and the organization felt that with a new stadium, an updated logo was necessary. I think it looks better, and fans shouldn’t mind because it’s really not that different. Sounds like a win win for everyone.
