    Let's talk about ISU logos that feature an actual Cyclone

    While I was creating a mock vintage Cyclone logo for the 1920s, I was pondering this... ISU received the Cyclones nickname in 1895 and up until this year has had just two official logos that featured a Cyclone. Of course, we have the 1984 version:

    And the swirly bird logo that was replaced by I STATE:

    It's just a matter of time before ISU comes out with another logo that features an actual cyclone. I know there have been quite a few pseudo-official Cyclone logos. I remember the unique cyclone design for the gymnastics team around 2007:

    I know there's more out there--share them if you got them!

    The current Cy head kindof has a cyclone around it.

    Re: Let's talk about ISU logos that feature an actual Cyclone

    I would much rather have a brand logo that we have had for years than a new one every few years. Most great teams have logos that have never changed. Alabama, Texas, USC, Miami, Nebraska, Ohio State, Michigan, Florida State, Penn State, and Oklahoma have all stayed the same to represent the tradition that they have had and remember the players who wore that logo.

    When the new branding initiative came out a few years ago, I sent an email to the branding office requesting that there be a logo that actually features a cyclone. They said that this logo was intended as the logo to feature a "cyclone". They didn't have any plans or intention to make another logo featuring a tornado in profile like the first one posted by the OP.

    Yea, it's too bad that mark is associated with such a crappy era of football.

    Walking Cy is much better than the 1984 version IMO.

    Re: Let's talk about ISU logos that feature an actual Cyclone

    My favorite tornado logo isn't even one we created. I really like the animated CY-Tornado that they show on ESPN when they talk about Iowa State. Couldn't find an image, gif, or video of it though.


    I don't always drink beer, but when I do, I prefer Dos Equis.

    I love walking Cy, but I think he has some of the same issues as the tornado bird, just a bit too detailed to work to work on helmets, etc. The '84 logo, on the other hand, without the Iowa State lettering on top, could have been an iconic helmet silhouette if there had been any semblance of success with it.

    Re: Let's talk about ISU logos that feature an actual Cyclone

    The '84 logo just feels dated, and not dated in a oh that's so retro way, but in a wow that looks old way. I think the lettering is a lot of it though.

    Re: Let's talk about ISU logos that feature an actual Cyclone

    I like the 84 Tornado. But I was born in that era, so my first ISU stuff had that on it

    Walking Cy is a close second, because some of my stuff was older than 84 . . .
