DESIGN ELEMENTS, HISTORY AND EVOLUTION OF GREEN BAY PACKERS LOGO
Shape and Colors of the Green Bay Packers Logo
The iconic oval “G” logo of the Green Bay Packers was designed in 1961 by Gerald Braisher, the team’s equipment manager, in collaboration with his assistant John Gordon, who was also an art student. The design, consisting of a football-shaped letter “G”, was approved by the Packers’ then head coach Vince Lombardi. It, however, underwent slight modifications in 1980.
The team, as its popular nickname implies, has used “the green and gold” as their primary colors since the early 1950’s. Both these colors in the Green Bay Packers logo signify success, growth, freshness, supremacy and passion.
