Minneapolis-St. Paul – T-Wolves Gaming, the Minnesota Timberwolves NBA 2K League affiliate team, today unveiled its logo ahead of its first season in the NBA 2K League. The T-Wolves Gaming logo was created through a collaborative effort between the Timberwolves and Mississippi-based design expert Rodney Richardson of RARE Design. The logo was unveiled this morning on the team’s social media channels via a video highlighting the team’s new identity.
Throughout all of history, no other animal has been more revered as a warrior than the wolf. The shape of the logo is representative of the fierceness of the mask warriors wear into battle. The bold statement of the logo and the colors show the energy and the veracity T-Wolves Gaming will bring to the league.
