NFL Reveals Logo for Super Bowl LIX in New Orleans

With Super Bowl LVIII now in the books, the NFL has revealed the logo for next year’s Super Bowl, which will take place on Feb. 9, 2025, at the Superdome in New Orleans. The logo design is shown above.

If the Roman numerals look textured, that’s because the logo was originally rendered in little colored beads by its designer, Tahj Williams. Per the NFL:

For the first time ever, the NFL collaborated with a local artist on the creation of a Super Bowl logo.

The artist who created our new logo, Tahj Williams, is the queen of her Black Masking Indian tribe in New Orleans, the home of Super Bowl LIX.

With a beading tradition and culture that dates back to the birth of the nation, the Black Masking Indian tribe uses methods passed down for generations, and Tahj painstakingly built the Super Bowl LIX Logo bead by bead.

Here’s an accompanying video that the league released:

That’s pretty cool! As explained on this page, “Williams created a handmade logo in vibrant colors to represent Super Bowl LIX that recalls the ornate costumes she and her community assemble each year for Mardi Gras.” You can see some of those costumes on her Instagram and Facebook pages.

Obviously, we all miss the days when each Super Bowl got its own very distinct logo, instead of the bland template they use nowadays. But this logo design has more local flair than most of the recent ones, so that’s a plus.

Speaking of New Orleans and Mardi Gras, I’ll have another post with that theme later this morning. Stay tuned.
