At the beginning of the 2005-2006 school year, Zeeland High School (as it was known when I graduated) split into two schools, Zeeland East & Zeeland West. Since Zeeland was originally the Chix, Zeeland West decided to keep the naming convention going and christened themselves as the Dux.
Each year, the two football teams play each other in an event that has been dubbed the Bird Bowl for obvious reasons. In fall of 2014, the tenth Bird Bowl will be played. With throwbacks being all the rage, I think it would be fun to call this particular upcoming meeting the Bird Classic.
To celebrate the occasion, I have come up with a logo specifically for this game as well as some fauxback logos, insignia, and helmets for both teams. As the Dux have only been in existence for 10 years, they missed out on the fun that the late 70’s and early 80’s brought to sports logo design. The older Chix team gets something more attuned to the 60’s.
