Meaning and history Chicago Wolves Logo

Chicago Wolves Logo history

Back in 1993, Grant Mulvey had an idea of a green-eyed creature to symbolize the new ice hockey team. He told designer Andy Baron about it, and the work on the Chicago Wolves logo started.

The first drafts looked somewhat cartoonish, while Mulvey insisted he wanted something realistic. Eventually, Baron found inspiration in one of the books about wolves he had looked through. Here, a lonely, fierce-looking animal was standing slightly apart from the pack.
