2018

Clean, crisp, nice nod to 8 bit graphics. Solid colors. 8/10


 

 

 

 

2016


I really could be locked in that tower - so real. Interesting choices made using the H as part of the tower. 6/10

 

2014


So iconic. So classic. The gradient on the dots/track balls is such a bold move and it works. 9/10

 

 

 

2012



The fundamentals are solid but the overall effect is messy. 4/10

 

 

 

 

2010

It really captures the feel of those high scoring games and the tension of semifinals going to a 5th tie breaker. 8/10

 

2008



Makes me nostalgic for word art drop shadows. However, it was 2008 and those flags are 2000 and late. 4/10


 

 

2006




If you like it, then you should have put a gradient on it. Words? Gradient. Ball? Gradient. Ring? Gradient. The arc shot? Do I need to say it? Gradient. Solid commitment. 9/10






 

2004



This logo is a frenzy. 1/10

 

 

 

 

 

 

2002



The "magazine collage" style is a brave artistic choice but gives no indication of the game. 3/10

 

 

 

 

 

 

2000



Hardly a logo but the 2000 medal visual play works for me. 7/10

 

 

 

 

 

1998 


no logo found 0/10

 

1996



This takes you on such a wild ride that it provides you with a seat belt. 2/10

 

 

 

 

 

 

1994




The drama. The realism. The drills really jump out at you and the name is so subtle yet so strong. 8/10

 

 

 

 

 

 

1992



The OG. Drawn before color was invented. 10/10
