On Monday, the Indianapolis Colts announced a set of small changes to their logos and designs that saw them change their wordmark and expanded their color palette, but they also added a new secondary logo.
“The outline of the state of Indiana is carved out of the “C” from the Colts’ new word mark (see below) to honor the team’s home state and community. The new secondary mark will be used to complement the Horseshoe and will be featured on fan gear and subtly integrated into the Colts uniform design, the team’s website stated.”
Shortly after the new logo made circulation around the web, a designer for a local high school noticed the Colts new logo looked very similar to something he created for a local high school several years ago.
In a follow up tweet, the guy stated “we tagged [the Colts] regularly in posts because of using their facilities, playing in their stadium.” Tight end Jack Doyle went to Cathedral and is now a member of the Colts.
As you might remember, the Los Angeles Rams unveiled a new set of logos and colors, and much like the Colts, they were also accused of ripping off their design from Division II college Angelo State University.
