    Well, kinda blurry. :chuckle:

    Doubt it, but ... I don't hate it. :idk:

    I think it's more of a "site logo" kinda like FH's logo.

    I'm thinking the Dolphin without the rest of the name may be the logo...

    I like it. Like the script of the writing as well. Interested to see what this might be.

    Curious that the only photo of the "leak" is such poor quality. Sort of like the Loch Ness Monster.

    If it is real, almost impossible to judge it with the quality of the photo.

    You can tell it's not legit. The site has those little "preview" boxes in the bottom right hand corner that are highlighted orange when the picture is one the screen. The first one is highlighted (thus the picture that should be on the screen) and the little preview picture looks nothing like the picture on the screen. Probably photoshopped to screw with people.

    EDIT: Now that I stare at it longer, I'm not totally sure it's not the preview. Plus it's in a cubicle. Like trying to figure out conspiracy theories.

    This. We're the Miami Dolphins. Can't imagine someone taking the time to photoshop the front page of the website.

    Either way I like the look. At least the blurry *** picture posted above. Anxious to see what the final logo looks like. I feel like we deserve to see it.

    Also looks like it says " A new era of Dolphins football".

    Perhaps, or it could be someone actually working on the website...

    Good catch. It even looks like the guy has photoshop open on his taskbar (the blue square icon next to mozilla).

    Also look at the address in the URL bar. It should just be www.miamidolphins.com, yet the address looks much longer than that. Probably a photo and not an actual web address. Makes me think it is a photoshopped picture. If someone came across the logo by accident, don't you think you would make sure to take a good photo of it? Or a screen capture. Seems to me like the blurriness is a way to help cover up that it is fake.

    If this is the logo the said person would be creating the home page for the revealing of the new logo. Of course the URL would be longer.

    Interesting... That could be the dolphin, but not the final logo. It looks like they took creative liberties with the dolphin design to make it the "D" for this particular image. The Dolphin in the logo will undoubtedly have the sunburst behind it and be pointed in the opposite direction.

    The one thing I question about this leak... Why is the current (old) logo still up at the top of the mockup?

    It actually does look like the one highlighted in the preview box.

    If somebody did upload that to the site (highly unlikely) then it got taken down pretty quickly because they weren't ready for it to be seen yet, it sure isn't on the site anymore. If it was in the top left then they'd be ready to unveil it, which would mean the "new era of dolphins football" article would still be on the site.

    I don't think it's' legit for reasons people have already pointed out, but that "new logo" don't look half bad.

    I never got the impression that this was ever put live onto the website. IMO, this is a shot of a dev version of the site that the web guys are working on. That would explain the "rushed" look of the photo. Someone was trying not to get caught snapping a picture of "classified" stuff at work.

    That could be true, although I don't think it would be worth losing your job over.

    I'm pretty sure it's a photoshop anyway.

    I dont think thats the Miami Dolphins homepage, it seems like the part of the site where you order tickets.

    Sorry to burst everyone's bubble that is a photoshop. On the bottom of screen there is a logo icon of PS (PHOTOSHOP). I seen this logo design on Chris Creamer Logos the other day while browsing. I can make that in a heartbeat with my PS and PIXLR online it's ******* easy anyone can do it. In fact I will find it online clean it up and there you go it's out there it will be found trust me. The idiot who thought they could get away with it forgot to close PS and that it is a screen shot of our official web site but their work was done to it. It's plain as can be seen. Plus, if it was real the whole site would change not just that. Guys remember during Week 15 they changed it to and old school look for the entire week. I tweeted Mike Dee and asked him do you know anything about the web site logo for NEW ERA IN DOLPHINS FOOTBALL the scripted one. So far, no tweet back but, if it was real it would be on the site it is not. I am going to find out I will give an update soon. Plus his email mdee@miamidolphins.com. If you want answers. I will search and find it and put it up once I do.

    Ignore the script logo for a moment... look at the logo in the top left of that picture. It looks like a blend between our retro logo and current logo. Our current logo has no white space in the center of the dolphin it like you can see in that picture.

    Here's hoping; I'd be thrilled if that's what they settled on doing.

    Ummmmmmm...

    Isn't the most likely place to find concepts of our new logo a design agency? What program do you think a designer who is working on logo concepts might use? Might he drop his latest idea into a Miami Dolphins web page to see if it fits the Miami brand values? Might somebody visiting the agency - maybe working with the designer in the chair opposite - take a quick snap over the guy's shoulder?

    I have no idea what the answer is to any of the above questions, but it's just as valid a thought process as the idea that somebody would be bothered to set up an elaborate fake of a Miami Dolphins logo design.

    I quite like the idea of the dolphin as D in a scripted logo. Does the helmet logo become the whole thing or just the dolphin?

    People need to start using puu.sh instead of taking pictures of their laptops/computers with their cameras..

    there's no way the logo is going to be spelled out. It has to be some sort of icon.

    Likely, but perhaps the dolphin at the head of the word is where they're going...

    I tried sharpening the logo in that leaked pic using every photoshop trick in the book and unfortunately the way the photo was taken (the person moving the camera while taking the photo) makes sharpening it impossible. Ah well, I tried.

    I may live to regret these words, but I actually think this may be closer to the actual logo than the previously leaked one. As much as I didn't mind the last leaked logo as most of you, I must acknowledge that the last design had numerous issues with symmetry while this one could work with a sun behind it as the primary logo OR as the D in the scripted word.

    "Mike Dee just stated a few minutes ago on Joe Rose's show that any logo already seen is not the new logo. Nothing has been leaked."

    I guess this closes the door on this leak, unless Dee is mincing words and the script is a variation of the official logo (ie: the real logo will only use the dolphin)...or unless he hasn't seen this one.

    I don't think it's a logo as much as it is a wordmark. Many teams (including us) have wordmarks in addition to logos. Whether the Dolphin in that wordmark would tie in the logo is another matter.

    Here is my version of this logo. It is similiar but I put my creativeness to it. Tell me what you guys think.

    That Orange line at the bottom I ****** that up but you get the picture. Some of the work stinks. I did it freehand. I will clean it up later.

    I don't know why it is always the dolphin side shot. Not that this is an actual idea but why not look at some different angles of framing the dolphin or perhaps not even show the whole dolphin. As far as any leaked logos go I have not seen anything that looks like it was designed professionally yet. (I guess I don't know how to attach a pic!) Dolphin1.jpg

    I found some more info from the MIke Dee's radio interview regarding the logo change...from Omar Kelly's Twitter:

    "Mike Dee the change in the logo is going "to be slight," and to some people it will be more different. Said sun and Dolphin will not change"

    "Dolphins CEO Mike Dee said the Dolphins have been working for three years "to make it look less cartoonish." Process has been slowed down."

    "We have engaged with fans and season ticket holders. We're done research with Nike and others,"
