Good Day Atlanta's Buck Lanford talks to the creator of the original Hawks logo:  Before there was Pacman, there was the Hawks "Pacman" logo. In 1972, Bob Wages was a newlywed and a night student at Georgia State University. Among his first assignments after taking his first professional job at advertising agency McDonald and Little, was to design the logo for the Atlanta Hawks.Even at 23 years old, he realized what an amazing opportunity this was, but he wasn't done. A short time later, he was also called upon to design the logo for Atlanta's new NHL team, the Flames.

The Hawks introduced a new logo in 1995, but the original "Pacman" design remained popular. During last year's playoffs, they brought back a revised version of Wages original design, and now this year they find themselves in the midst of the best season in team history. Coincidence? Perhaps, but for Wages who still has the original hand drawn sketches at his Pine Lake office, it brings back a lot of great memories. To watch the story click here.
