Here's a Fun Proposed Rebrand of the Cleveland Indians; Meet the Cleveland Buzzards

Wahoo is gone but the name remains. For those who believe the Cleveland baseballing team should shed the Indians' name as well and rechristen itself anew with fresh branding, many good and fine options have been previously discussed. Scene's contest to rebrand the Tribe, for example, produced some exemplary ideas — the Guardians, the Spiders, etc.

Here's another one to throw on the pile.

Noted Ohio-style pizza purveyor and somewhat noted graphic design artist and illustrator Aaron Sechrist thinks it's high-time to meld a different part of Northeast Ohio history into the legacy of the Dolan-owned franchise. Meet the Cleveland Buzzards.

Selected primary and secondary logos, uni options, and origin story below. Find the full presentation here.
