We got an amazing surprise as Tavares High School has unveiled its new athletics program logo that will be on all of Tavares High Branded items going forward. The new Tavares logo is a much more modern take on the traditional one the school has used for nearly two decades now. The old Bulldog logo utilized a few different Bulldogs over the years and those logos were very similar to other schools in the United States that used what became a fairly familiar logo associated with a Bulldog. Even my hometown high school in Massachusetts was using a variation of that Bulldog logo at some point although that one was green instead of red like Tavares.
(This old Tavares logo featured a more light red bulldog. This logo had been in use for nearly two decades and is used by a wide number of schools in the USA. It was time for a modern refresh on a classic school mascot!)
(The modern Tavares Bulldog logo takes a classic mascot and creates something new. The Tavares word font has been updated with a classic yet modern retro style cursive. The color scheme has been adjusted and is much more pleasing on the eyes.)
The school has ushered in a new era in 2023. Athletic Director Tracey Hanson has been doing a terrific job at doing a lot more with a lot less. The school sent some Track & Field Athletes to the State Finals this year along with a District Championship win for the school’s Unified Flag Football team. Coach Gavin Jones is back with the football program and Tavares is attempting to look towards the future of the program.
(Another old alternate bulldog logo Tavares used to use sparingly. Featuring only the Bulldogs head, the bright red color has been toned down in the new design. In fact the only red to appear on the face logo is the collar of the bulldog.)
(Much less red is a good thing! The red collar compliments the bulldog head nicely. The bulldog now stands out with a few different color tones that make this logo pop! We absolutely love it!)
That future looks bright! The new logo takes the best of the old logo and incorporates it into a brand new unique Bulldog logo that we have not seen. The classic Tavares word mark has been updated to reflect the times including a brand new darker red type font. The previous version was a bit more bright red but this color scheme is more dark and looks terrific. The dark red letters compliment the Bulldog’s spike collar. The white on the collar blends in nicely with the bulldog showing his teeth in the image.
Overall this is a huge win as far as design goes. We love the fact that Tavares is serious about wanting to paint a positive image of the program. Although certain aspects of Tavares High School still need work this is a great start. We hope to see Tavares get back to their winning ways. We hope all the programs can have success this upcoming school year. Our overall grade for this re-design is an A+ Go Bulldogs!
