2013 SRT Viper Gets New Snake Logo: Stryker
The new Viper logo was created by Chrysler designer Vince Galante, who must have looked at a lot of snake heads for this job. “Vince actually brought his pencil sketch to both Joe (Dehner) and me to review. We both said, ‘That’s it.’ We knew Vince had created a new icon. The new Stryker badge is the most refined, sinister looking and beautiful badge yet, just like the shape of the car,” Mark Trostle, Head of SRT Design, explains.
“I never looked at images of the Thundercats while I was doing the new logo, but after the fact, I realize that the new design has some elements of those graphics, but more intentionally has some lines that reflect the new Viper,” said Galante, who says he was a fan of Transformers, GI Joe and the Thundercats.
One thing is for sure, he now as a new trick he can show off at parties, and that is drawing vipers.
