You’ve tossed out your tube tops and velour tracksuit, but has your conference logo design also evolved with the times? And what does it say about your event?
The logo for Sunday’s Super Bowl LIII has an uncluttered, 3D, stainless steel look, but it hasn’t always been that way.

Some years, the host city gets a nod; in other years, it’s all about loud colors or typography reflecting the energy of the game and the style of the times. (The groovy typeface of Super Bowl V has 1971 written all over it!)
