Meaning and history

Visalia Rawhide Logo history

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.

1995 — 2008

Visalia Rawhide Logo 1995
The very first logo for Visalia Rawhide was created in 1995 when the name of the club was Visalia Oaks. It was a calm and dark badge, composed of a logotype and a graphical part with a caricaturish badger in gray, wearing the burgundy jersey and a baseball cap and jingling a white ball in its hand. The badges were placed behind the first letter of the nameplate, “V”. The text part of the logo was set in two lines, written in a title case, with the “V” enlarged. The inscription was set in an extra bold serif typeface and featured dark green as the main color and gold as the color of the outline. The dot above the second “I” in “Visalia” was replaced by a white and red baseball. And the dot above the first “I” was supposed to be replaced by the ball in the badger’s hands.

2009 — Today

Visalia Rawhide logoThe 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.
