Let's rank logos!

HOORAY!

I'm bored, and reading through the mind=blown thread made me realize how awesome/terrible some logos are. So let's rank them.

Keep in mind, we're not insulting your team here, just their graphic design department.



30. :

I never really stared closely at the Islanders logo until recently. It's really awful. A jumbled mess, with one of my least favorite color schemes ever.

29. :

Mainly the color scheme again, but the huge shadow/dripping/whatever letters bug the hell out of me. Just use an oil drip eh?

28. :

Truly my least favorite logo ever. I'm a sucker for color schemes and this has zero. No offense Hawks fans, but your teams logo actually puts me in a bad mood when I see it.

27. :

The flaming C is a huge cornball of an image.

26. :

With such history, it's hard to hate. But it's so boring for a team that could have an amazing patriotic logo. Even the Liberty logo sucked.

25. :

Sure, it's a predator. And all. But I find it to be quite busy. Yet boring still.

24. :

A whale huh.

23. :

No, no toilet jokes. I wish they'd use the actual flag logo more prominently though.

22. :

This always boggled my mind. The black panther is one of the most terrifying mammals out there. Yet they choose to go orange. Or gold. Or blue. Or red.

21. :

The only reason it's so low on this list is the effort they put in to it. I think it's stupid as hell, but someone deserves some kind of credit somewhere...for something.

20. :

I feel like I'm readin hieroglyphs.

19. :

I like it. It's simple. Perhaps a little too simple compared to the rest.

18. :

Boring, but it works.

17. :

It's iconic for many reasons. But when you zoom in on it, it's really pretty shoddy.

16.

It's a foot!

15. :

THRILLERRRR....

14. :

See Detroit.

13. :

It's corny as hell, but what can you really do with a shark? Colors are cool.

12. :

It's the kind of simplistic, detailed logo a sports team should have.

11. :

I've always loved the Avs logo. It's very clever. Not technically well constructed, but from far away it's brilliant.



Continued in post #2...

On a side note, it was interesting figuring out the codes for some of the teams.

10.

I know I'm gonna get **** for this one, but to me, it's easily their best franchise logo. The change from yellow to gold was brilliant, and the bird looks much more modern.

9. :

Love it. It's American, it's Ohio, and it's got movement. As a shape it's a little off but hey.

8. :

So simple, yet so meaningful.

7. :

It's pretty perfect, unlike that shield of theirs...

6. :

Perfection.

5. :

Prefer the old head, but this works too. It just fits so well with the name, and the jerseys.

4.

Homer pic. But you can't deny it's cleanliness/cleverness.

3. :

One of the greatest sports logos ever, imo.

2. :

It's always tickled me. From the titled star, to the unique colors, it's gorgeous.


Grab your seat...


1. :

This thing is flawless. I know tons of people hate it and want the gaudy old Jets logo back. Which stuns me when you have something like this.


Flame? Applaud? Laugh? Do your own? WHATEVER! That's the freedom I've given to you!

Here to flame. I think the most egregious listing is Chicago at #28.

Too low on your list, IMO:
Chicago @ 28
NYR @ 26
Montreal @ 19
Boston @ 18
Philly @ 14

Too high on your list, IMO:
Dallas @ 2
Ottawa @ 5
Columbus @ 9

Pretty much the only thing I agree with is the Islanders in last.

Jets as No. 1? Really?

Although to be honest I don't like Chicago's logo as much as most people seem to. But not that low.

Chicago is the best, Winnipeg is bottom 5 and personally Calgary is top 5.

I know nobody always agrees on what the best/worst logos are, but hopefully we can come together and agree that this is the worst logo ranking that has ever been posted on hfboards. Seriously, I was wondering if I was being trolled the entire time I read it.

To all those up in arms over the Hawks being low, I know it's "iconic" and whatnot. And apparently that means it's the best. But, through my eyes, it's extremely unpleasing, visually.

I've always really really liked the Minnesota Wild logo and in my book it should be higher, the Rangers one should also

You put a lot of thought and work into this post and it was an entertaining read non-the-less.

It's really hard to refrain from attacking the OP because this just seems like a huge troll post.

I am not commenting on the Rangers logo since I am a homer regarding that particular logo. But I will play along:

30. Islanders have a good looking logo, and the "jumbled mess" has an actual meaning.
28. Blackhawks
25. Predators
22.Panthers

Are beautiful logos, especially the preds have one of the nicer "new" logos

Sabres is among the best logos in all of sports.

You find the Sharks logo corny yet rank it so high.
The Sens 3-D logo is bar none the worst, Jets is nice but not the best logo and your Caps logo is a shoulder patch and it isn't even that nice, middle of the pack.
A- for A-ffort F for Failure

I agree that iconic shouldn't make a logo aesthetically pleasing.

The Wild logo is a piece of art and should be #1

Avs and Caps logos are my favourite. I like the Avs one because it's such a great representation of an Avalanche while having a C mixed with an A. And the Caps logo because it has a W and the WHouse built into it in a subtle way. The Stars logo is bland and would be near the bottom of my list.

Always good fun, and will more than likely turn into an inevitable "your team sucks my team rulz" contest, but hopefully it'll sustain for a bit.

I won't rank mine because, well, I'm tired and lazy.

But....

I agree with the Peg logo for #1. I freaking love that design, the colors, the use of the Maple Leaf. I love it.

I HHHHAAAATE the Stars logo. Disclosure; I'm an old North Stars fan. Norm Green sucks.

As a Boston fan, I don't have a problem with your ranking. It's boring but iconic and I'll take it every day and twice on Sunday as a homah.

Those that you have low that I'd rank higher...the Panthers. I love the detailing and the offsetting use of color.

Not shabby chap, not shabby.

Senators would be so badass with the old senator head. Love the Calgary flamin' C, and the Blues note. The Canucks whale sucks, anything else they've had has been so much better. Interestingly it appeared around the same time the Whalers moved to Carolina...

My top 5 favorites are as follows:

5.

4.

3.

2.

1.

I don't think it's homerish at all to have our logo as one of my favorites. I absolutely love the Wild logo and I think it's quite creative. Now if only they could do something about those ugly home red jerseys. . . . .

It's nice, but way too corporate. It's the type of logo the designers at my office would design for a firm or the Canadian government.
