Meaning and history

Great Wolf Lodge Logo history

1997 – 2000

Great Wolf Lodge Logo-1997
The original logo design was styled as a classic Midwestern signboard with a round extension in the top. Much of it was green to resemble the foliage. This bit had the brand’s wordmark (then – ‘Black Wolf Lodge’) made from white serif letters. The round bit accommodated some tree outlines, as well as big wolf’s head.
Below them, there was also a wood-inspired green plaque with the address – Wisconsin Dells, Wisconsin – conveyed in a bold white writing.

2000 – 2001

Great Wolf Lodge Logo

The Great Wolf Lodge’s visual identity is confident and eye-catching. The hotels’ logo is composed of a square frame with a wordmark and an emblem inside.

The black bold inscription is built in three levels and executed in a decorative typeface, which is Carlson Antique, created by Berne Nadall. The unique style of the lettering is complemented by a bright spot in the middle of it.

The red Great Wolf Lodge emblem is a wolf’s footprint, which replaces the letter “O” in “Wolf”. The color of the image balances the red framing of the logo and makes a great accent.

It is a strong and recognizable visual identity concept, which is instantly associated with the brand and looks strong and modern due to the use of interesting typeface and a bright color combination.

The Great Wolf Resorts’ main company also uses a wolf footprint as its symbol, but its executed in a light blue and has a shape of a water drop, to represent the main group’s activity — water parks.
