    Simplified. Don't have to worry about silly-looking anthropomorphic dolphin with a helmet on as a logo... What do you guys think?

    Nice try, but no. There is nothing wrong with the Dolphins logo.

    It's not bad really. It's new thats for sure, I like it. But I'd rather have the current logo I think

    I like it but I think there's not enough to it.. maybe have the fin coming out of water but keep the sun in the background?

    I like it, but we're not the Miami Sharks. But it would be cool to have Jamie Foxx be our qb.

    This is just a concept. It needs to be cleaned up, but basically, I think using just the fin of the dolphin would make a good logo. My main gripe with the logo has always been that it looks too cartoonish. This gets rid of that problem.

    That's cool looking... If we were the Miami Sharks...

    EDIT: Also, it reminds me of this....

    If we were going to change the logo to make it look "tougher" I would vote for the dolphin that is our own Finheaven logo!!

    I think for an alternate logo, they should just use the 'M' on the Dolphins' helmet in our current logo.

    I'd like to see a logo with just the blowhole. other than that, if we take the dolphin off we might as well change the name.

    I applaud your work but I wouldn't buy a single jersey,hat,t-shirt, or even a pair of socks with that logo on it.

    Looks like some amateur Arena league logo.. Seriously.. and someone said it looks more intimidating? Really??

    I appreciate the effort and all... But why do people think they are going to overhaul one of the most recognizable logos on the NFL. Internationally we are in the top 5 for merchandise sales. That's why were were selected first to play in England AND Toronto.

    There's no way you can make a dolphin seem more intimidating as a skull the Bucs use, or as American as the star Dallas uses.

    Face it.. The Dolphins logo is pretty unique, and like the Redskins timeless.

    If anything.. the Finheaven logo would be best to replace the current one. At least it's an angry dolphin.

    Other than the Patriots old logo ours is the most complex in football. If they ever do decide to change it, I hope they do simplify it a bit.

    Rebranding is one of the toughest things a company ever does. There is always blowback. See Pepsi and GAP for example. GAP even had to go back to their original. The reason being, people associate all their memories and feelings of the brand with the logo. A change is jarring.

    If the Miami Dolphins logo was just a fin originally, and someone proposed an anthropomorphic disney cartoon dolphin wearing a helmet as a change, I guarantee the reaction would be that the logo is terrible. Feelings aside, just looking at it from a design perspective, the current dolphins logo is antiquated, somewhat ugly, and not befitting a modern football franchise. Its a holdover from the 60s era of sports logos animals wearing sportsgear.

    I realize this redesign isnt the best, or even everyone's cup of tea, but at least it functions as a logo. I want to see what people think about going toward a "fin" logo more than the logo itself as designed.

    I think its the angle and the fact that the sun is only half there. My suggesttion would be to ether restore the ful circle or lose it completely, and to reangle the "fin" into an more agressive angle.

    I think the OP's logo would look nice with the tweaks that WildBill mentioned.


    This isn't my design, but I think this logo is nice as well.[​IMG]

    Better than the fin design, but that's not saying much.
