DESIGN ELEMENTS OF THE SEATTLE SEAHAWKS LOGO:
The Seattle Seahawks logo, coordinated by General Manager John Thompson and the owners group of the Seattle Seahawks football club; D.E. (Ned) Skinner, Howard S. Wright, M. Lamont Bean, and Lynn P Himmelman, was announced to the public on June 17, 1975.
Shape of the Seattle Seahawks Logo:
The logo of the Seattle Seahawks represents a head of a fierce looking hawk which is basically a popular symbol derived from the Egyptian hieroglyphs used to represent their Falcon. Most other areas of the logo also are said to resemble more closely to the Haida Eagle form.
Color of the Seattle Seahawks Logo:
The colors used in the hawk head include royal blue, black and forest green based on Northwestern tribal art.
Font of the Seattle Seahawks Logo:
The designer clearly saw no need to add font to the logo as the use of the hawk’s head itself speaks of the team’s image.
