Inland Empire 66ers logo

The 2014 upgrade of the 66ers logo led to a totally new mark. The team’s name is in the foreground. The “66ers” is placed against an orange background. The first “6” is winged. A cartoon mechanic dressed in baby blue is swinging his wrench as if it were a baseball bat.

The color scheme was inspired by the colors of muscle cars ‒ orange and powder blue.

The 66ers have managed to create a meaningful and family friendly logo.
