MLB concept logos of the Chicago Cubs by various design artists from around the world. These are redesigned ideas and not actual team logos.

We’re headed back to the alternate universe from my Reds concept on this one. If the Reds are not the team to make the Wishbone C their own, then who would? While the Indians have a history with their Wishbone C, the Cubs also spent about twenty years wearing one as a primary logo/jersey crest and wore one on their caps until 1956. I figured it would be a cool experiment to see how the team would modernize it over time. This piece also gave me an opportunity to update the Cubs’ cursive scripts from the 1930’s (inspired by @gswansea’s).
The colors are the same as my previous Cubs concept, albeit with the addition of light blue and dark navy (replacing light royal). I don’t mind Cubs concepts that add light blue, but I don’t like it when it comes at the expense of royal/red.
The new primary logo features the 1994-96 bear at the center of the Cubs’ 1925-36 primary logo. This “C” features another notch in the wishbone, highlighting a light blue diamond. It was a way to get the 1931-33 script’s design into the main set, and differentiate the Cubs’ “C” from other Wishbone C insignias. The ’94-’96 bear appears in front of a rhombus as a tertiary. I’m aware that I’ve just turned the Cubs into every other Bears concept, but I’m OK with that.
