Washington Commanders Emblem

The badge, designed after the remake of Washington Redskins to the Washington Football Team, introduced a new minimalist design concept, which was based only on the colors and letters, with no graphical elements. The full logo boasted a dark yellow inscription in two lines, set on a solid burgundy horizontally oriented background.

The upper line of the inscription featured the enlarged and emboldened “Washington” written in the uppercase of a fancy custom typeface with sharp triangular details on the letters. As for the tagline, it was saying “Football Team, Est 1932”, and set in all capitals of a simple yet strong sans-serif font, in the same yellow shade.
