Montreal Canadiens Concept Logo
Montreal Canadiens Concept Logo By Jonathan Tweedle
By Jonathan Tweedle - Graphic Designer Website
Before you start yelling blasphemy I realize that the Canadiens jerseys are considered sacred and so before anyone freaks out I'll clear the air right off the bat, I've made small, simple changes to enrich the history surrounding this team.
With that said let's talk about the logo: Simply put, I've taken the current Habs logo and slapped it on top of a version of the globe logo they used way back in the 1920s. I've tried to take two eras of the most historic team and blend them together to create a unique new look.
The jerseys are a version of what the Canadiens use now. The Home jersey is pretty much the same except you may notice that I've taken the two thin stripes off the bottom of the jersey. That's not all, I've also put a faint deep blue print of the world map inspired by the 1920s globe logo. The away version is the exact opposite of its home counterpart which IS a big step away from the norm for them, but sometimes we should embrace change.
So without further ado, I give you a re-imagined concept of a throwback jersey the Habs wore during their centennial season. It is essentially the same jersey, but I've decluttered it (although it may not feel like it) by putting less stripes on it and giving it just a hint more blue because although the Habs have worn red since anyone can remember, the blue looks good, and the jersey is an instant classic.
The logo is a combination of 2 logos the Canadiens used back in the early 1900s. The maple leaf was used in 1911, while the CA logo was used a few years later in 1915. Simply put I've combined to historical eras of the rich history that is the Montréal Canadiens and put a new twist on a classic jersey from deep in the archives.
