The Rocket League logo through the years

While the car football game has been around for years, the Rocket League logo has gone through barely any changes, even after Epic Games’ purchased Psyonix

Rocket League logo: Two cars flying through the air, one red and blue with an M on the bonnet, fashioned after Mario, another green and blue with an L on the bonnet, fashioned after Luigi.

The Rocket League logo is iconic to any fans of cars, football (soccer), or videogames (or all three!). Okay, maybe not iconic, but it definitely is on the icon for the videogame on my Nintendo Switch screen. Anyway, enough silly jokes…

What we’re here to do is to help any budding graphic designers learn about the design choices made by Psyonix and Epic Games’ for its free-to-play multiplayer game. We’ve also got Rocket League codes, Rocket League best car, and Rocket League wallpapers for all you vehicular ball-scoring aficionados.

Anyway, let’s get typographical.

Rocket League logo 2014

The first Rocket League logo reminds me of Robot Wars, a British television show where mechanically-minded people design brutal killer robots and make them fight. I like it. Here, we have the car below a slightly cartoonish wraparound font. It’s chill, but a little MS word art for me.

Rocket League logo 2015

Just like everything in graphic design, the Rocket League logo pushed for simplicity with its pseudo-Futura logo change in 2015, alongside the football team crest with a car flying through it. It’s bold if a bit lacking in personality.

Rocket League logo 2020

By 2020, Epic Games’ owned Rocket League, as they do now. The logo lost the football crest and is now used on its own next to seasonal changes and whatnot. The name is still there, bold as ever, and changes colour in press materials based on different in-game events.
