So here it is folks, a new logo to brandish upon this lovely website that a good friend of mine, Sasha Kraus, actually developed for me. The theme for the logo revolves around the emotional feeling of being ‘pumped up’ and hence features a flexed bicep wielding a bat to take a hack with. It features a royal blue colour to mimic the colours of our beloved Blue Jays and is pretty clean and straight to the point. Sasha did a marvellous job for me, I have to say.
Just for kicks, Sasha designed the following Toronto Blue Jays logo as well. Notice the capital T’s for the seams of the baseball and of course the year the Jays were established are on either side of the logo. This too is very clean and simple.
Speaking of clean and simple, Sasha used the following logo’s as inspiration to help design one for this blog.
This Vancouver Canucks logo has a lot of symbolism within it as the hockey stick obviously signifies hockey, but the stick also forms a slight “V” for Vancouver. Plus the background is blue which symbolizes the ocean, and green for land. The whole thing is not only in the shape of a hockey rink, but a “C” for Canucks too. So smart!
Ah yes, the old Hardford Whalers logo also is very clever featuring the white “H” for Hartford and a whale’s tail above that which also carves out the green “W” for Whalers.
Sasha loved the following MLB logos too:
This logo symbolizes so much as well: the glove fingers to make the “M” for Milwaukee, the glove pocket with the ball in the middle makes a nice “B” for Brewers and the blue & golden colours signify water and barley since Milwaukee is a brewery town right on the shores of Lake Michigan.
Of course, the following logo is held dear to many Canadians’ hearts.
Yes, the old Montreal logo is a classic which features a red “E” on the left thanks to a nice little swirl and a blue “B” on the right which together makes an “M” to stand for “Expos de Montréal Baseball.” So clever.
This old one for the Cubs can’t get more simpler. It highlights a big “C” for both the city of Chicago and the Cubs.
Certainly, you can’t get any more classic than this. The New York Yankees have been using this logo since 1909. ‘Nuff said.
