Oakland Zoo releases the 2012-2013 logo

As they do each year, the Oakland Zoo updated their logo for the upcoming season.


It has been tradition since the early years of the student section that the leaders of the Oakland Zoo redesign it's logo for that year's t-shirt. This past Thursday, the Zoo released their new logo design, using elements from years past.

The back is something we’re especially proud of. We combined the Cathedral design that has been used the past 2 years with the “6th Man” idea that was last seen on the 2008-2009 shirt. It mimics what the players have on the back of their jerseys. The Zoo has always been the 6th man for our team, and we wanted to bring that back. Now the back of the Zoo shirts almost entirely match the back of the players’ Hyper Elite jerseys.

A nice addition this year is that there will also be hoodies and ladies sizes available. The shirts should be available early next week. I look forward to adding this one to my collection.
