You won't believe this NFL team's new name and logo

Washington's NFL team announced this month that it would be dropping its name, Washington Redskins, as well as its logo. According to CNN, the team has faced building pressure to change the controversial name, which has long been denounced by Native American groups. The team has now announced a new name: Washington Football Team. How on earth did they come up with that?

If it sounds a little uninspired, don't worry – the name is only temporary. Pending adoption of a new name, the team will go by Washington Football Team for the duration of the 2020 NFL season. Also gone is the team's original logo (featuring a Native American in profile), replaced with a temporary logo (below). If the team is looking for tips for its new identity, our logo design guide is a great place to start.
