While this does have some good reasoning for it, I can only see "elb" when I see this.
OP fail, that is iconic and cannot be changed because of their Dynasty era of Mike Bossy and friends winning multiple Stanley Cups in a row.Thread title is self-explanatory
Everytime I see this logo, it's like looking at a high-school design stuck in the 80s.
Is that an honest to god mistake? Or something to stop sounding weird like "Toronto Maple Leaves" as in leaving some place?
The Maple Leafs say that the name was chosen in honour of the Maple Leaf Regiment from World War I; however, the Toronto Maple Leafs baseball team had won the International League championship a few months earlier and had been using that name for 30 years. As the regiment is a proper noun, its plural is Maple Leafs (not Maple Leaves).
The late 80's Mariners look was fucking vile. Not a fan of yellow and blue together on any team (I know tons of iconic teams wear it, it looks like shit on all of them - except perhaps the current GS Warriors set,) but that poor combo paired with shitty font, complete with a poorly executed drop shadow really just makes me a bit ill.
my least favourite are the generic, corporate, "clean" logos that seem to be taking over:
It doesn't immediately communicate that the silhouette is meant to be an 'M', or that it begins with 'M'. Only the upstroke is highlighted, opening it to interpretation as a lowercase 'l'. I wouldn't blame anyone for mistaking it 'elb'.
How I expect it's meant to be seen.
Wow, that's an even worse design than I thought.
Lmao they misspell business and leave the scribble on the logo. Holy shitNot technically a logo, but based on the logo of the owner's other business, I give you Kingsley, mascot for the Partick Thistle FC:
Here's the logo it's based on:
It looks like an angry uterus.
