Kansas City Chiefs 1970's "New" Logo (Inkscape)

Recommended Posts

My Brewers alternate throwback logo that I posted yesterday got a good response so I am adding another one of my concepts today. But first, a little bit of backstory...

I am obsessed with logos that were designed in the 70's. So that got me wondering: what if some teams that have had the same logo since their inception before 1970 got a new logo in the 70's? What would it look like?

The first team I did was the Kansas City Chiefs. I combined a red capital K with a football shape that is made up of a black C and an arrowhead. I am a big fan of diagonal stripes so I couldn't help but include them as the laces on the football. Plus it is kind of reminiscent of warpaint.

Here is the logo:

I'd love to hear what you guys think! :)

I'm not too into this logo. The arrow head looks like a fish and the "K" looks like a dude who just got his legs beaten with a baseball bat and he's crawling away. I like the color scheme and the concept of the reboot though :/

The way that you rendered the football logo, plus the specific Red/Black/White combo just makes me see Kenya.

I like I saw a "c" in the "K" didn't even think about the black area creating a "c'

Funny. I see Swaziland:

It's a clever and interesting idea, but the C seems fat and forced and there's no yellow. I know there's no yellow in the Cheifs' current primary but I hate that it doesn't.

That's funny that my design made a couple of you think of flags because I am actually obsessed with flags. Whenever I design a uniform concept I try to incorporate elements from the flag of the city a team is located in. I've been doing this since 2009, waaaaay before Under Armor came up with the Maryland Pride state flag uni's.

Anyway, since my concept logo reminded you guys of two African nation flags it got me curious to see what the flag of Nigeria looked like since Christian Okoye was known as the Nigerian Nightmare. I was hoping for some red, black, and white in it so it would match the Chiefs' uniforms but unfortunately the flag is just green and white:

I love this logo! You nailed it with the "c", and the arrow head coming out of the football. It says all it needs to say in such a simple design. I don't see it being used today, but it's definitely a '70s era inspired concept. A+
