Just about every sports fan is tied to their team’s logo, which makes ranking logos complicated. To get an educated opinion on what is a good logo and what isn't, Athlon Sports turned to one of the people most responsible for helping produce some of the best-looking magazines on the newsstands, graphic designer Daly Cantrell.
Here is what she had to say about the Pac-12's football logos:
I love a good script font that is gender neutral… and this logo does the trick. The color scheme along with the beautiful flow of the letters makes this logo top in my book in the Pac-12.
The Ducks' O displays simplicity at its finest. The font of the O has a great shape that gives it a different compared to your average O.
The interlocking letters make this logo. That subtle detail in the crossing gives just enough detail to really bring this logo to the next level.
The Huskies’ W is so classic and sleek that it works.
The Bruins’ logo is a classic take on a script logo. Underlining the letters make the logo stand out and gives a great softness to all the curves.
A lot of creativity went into making this logo. The subtle WSU in the body of the cougar is a really cool concept.
I really like the concept behind this logo, but I wish the CU was a little easier to read.
Stanford’s S is extremely classic. The touch of white and red trim makes the logo.
I like the concept, but I hate that two typefaces were made in the making of this. The inner A is too pointed for the slab serif A around it.
I am glad they finally dropped the words that used to be incorporated with this logo. The pitchfork has an edginess to it and is quite different to the rest the logos in college football.
This logo could be really cool, but the circle bothers me. The block U and feather detail is great, but it the circle gives an off-balanced feel.
I am just not a fan of the beaver... it looks like a blob.
