Minnesota Timberwolves Logo Design Ideas and Inspirations

- The Team Rune "A" is a representative piece of the history of the wolf and the state of Minnesota.

- Greenery surrounds the people every day in Minnesota. Whether it is the northern lights in the sky, the reflection of ice crystals in the winter, or the buildings they work around, the green eyes of the wolf are another representation of the fierceness of Minnesota. Green is also a sign of spring. In the spring, the buds of the trees flourish as a bright green. The green in their color palette represents a new era of what is to come.
- The wolf breaks out of the circle represents the wolf’s ability to fight through discouraging times and come out on top. The team players often show traits of not being able to contain their strength. Whether it is going up for a dunk, a steal, fast break, or cheering moment – the energy of our players is uncontainable.
- The direction of the wolf is facing forward to honor the past they are proud of, without forgetting it. The team is constantly moving ahead and carving out new territory. They want to leave the frustrating years behind them and more on to a hopeful future – a New Era.
