Pentagram (New York) Partner Michael Gerickedesigned the logo and trophy for the College Football National Championship.
Gericke's logo was rendered on the field for the championship game (in which Alabama's Crimson Tide defeated Clemson University at Phoenix Stadium) and his trophy was awarded after the game Jan. 12, 2016. Both feature two gold brackets that form the shape of a football and represent the coming together of the best teams in the NCAA's Division 1 playoff system. Gericke also designed award-winning environmental graphicsfor the University of Phoenix Stadium, the home of the NFL's Arizona Cardinals, which hosted the 2008 and 2015 Super Bowls.
