Browns’ 2015 helmet to be “brighter” orange, feature brown facemask
The Browns revealed a series of minor logo and helmet changes on Tuesday, with two alterations to their helmets of particular note.
The Browns’ helmets will continue to have an orange crown, but the orange will be “brighter and richer,” the club said. Also, a rendering of the new helmet shows a brown facemask, not the gray facemask of a season ago.
The club’s logo lettering has also been changed to a plain block styling. Previously, the lettering had stenciling.
The Browns also have a new logo for the “Dawg Pound,” the nickname for members of the club’s fan base.
The Browns’ most anticipated design changes are still to come. The franchise will present redesigned uniforms for 2015 on April 14.
Finally, in other Browns uniform news, the club’s old-school elf mascot will now be one of its secondary logos, Browns president Alec Scheiner said Tuesday, according to Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal.
