18. Milwaukee Brewers (1978-93)
Designer: Tom Meindel
Year Logo Introduced: 1978
Tom Meindel, an art history student at UW-Eau Claire, designed this iconic logo for the Brewers 1978 season. The "M" and "B" form a glove, such an obvious but delightful graphic form. Meindel's logo successfully defined the club through 1993. In 1994, the Brewers celebrated 25 years with a new logo—only used for 5 years—and then unveiled another in 2000. Despite the changes, Miendel's creation remains the team's best and an icon the city has not forgotten.
