The redesign of 2005 introduced a modern and cool version of the Fort Wayne Wizards logo. The color palette got extended to blue, green, white, and light gray, which looked cold, close to silver. The Wizard portrait was replaced by the drawing of a large green lizard, which was holding a white baseball bat. The creature was placed on a circular background with a starry pattern, and complemented by a stylish custom wordmark in gray, with a double blue and green outline.
