After a month and a half of asking fans to vote on their favorite design, the Cleveland Browns announced on Thursday the two finalists for their new Dawg Pound logo.
The Browns previously narrowed nearly 400 entires down to two fan favorites and commissioned three local artists for additional designs to round out the final five options.
One design from each category made it to the final two, with graphic designer Houston Mark – who you may remember from our Detroit Lions redesign contest – having the best fan submission.
His logo features various nods to Cleveland, the Browns and Ohio, including the guitar pick on the collar, the Hope Memorial Bridge in the jowls, the helmet stripe on the forehead and the state outline on the ear.
Meanwhile, the unnamed local artist’s design is also a forward-facing mastiff, which was chosen by fans earlier this year as the breed that best fits the franchise, wearing a spiked collar and has a helmet stripe on its forehead.
The last round of voting begins on Tuesday and runs through June 9, with the winner set to be announced sometime during training camp this summer. You can cast your vote on the Browns’ official website when the window opens.
