Top 5 Super Bowl Logos of All Time
LET’S GO! In just 4 days the Kansas City Chiefs will take on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to vie for the NFL Super Bowl LV Championship! Naturally, we wanted to get in on the game by highlighting our top 5 Super Bowl logos of all time. So let’s kick it off….(pun(t) intended) and count them down!
5. Super Bowl V
First on the countdown comes from Super Bowl V in 1971. We love the nostalgia of the fifth Super Bowl when the Baltimore Colts defeated the Dallas Cowboys. The fun typace evokes the early 70s with neon billboards that gives it that classic hippy vibe and we dig it.
4. Super Bowl L
For the 50th anniversary of the Super Bowl, is when the logo took a real turn that was “game-changing” to say the least as the Denver Broncos crushed the Carolina Panthers.

As the Green Bay Packers defeated the New England Patriots with a fun game, we also love how the logo incorporates the fun and festive jester…the life of the party. After all it is just a game.
1. Super Bowl XXXIV
And the winner goes to the big Super Bowl logo that brung in the new millenium for 2000 when the St. Louis Rams conquered the Tennessee Titans. With the shield being the prominent display in the logo with the American red, white and blue, it reminds us that the USA loves football and unites together to celebrate the sport. The simple palette and fun typography keep it clean but still iconic. The shading also adds an appealing sense of dimension and depth that makes it the best Super Bowl logo of all ti
