The franchise has managed to create an utterly new identity since its name was changed. The logo and colors were the first to undergo changes.

The Rawhide’s logo adopted in 2009 consists of two words ‒ the word “Rawhide” in a westernized script and the word “Visalia” in capital letters. “Visalia” is above between the letters “R” and “h”. A red star outlined in tan serves as a dot for the letter “i” in the word “Rawhide”. The letter “R” looks as if it is made from a bull whip that underlines the logo. For this detail the logo is often referred to as “Roping “R” logo. The color scheme includes black, scarlet and metallic gold/ tan.
