Bring back the 2D!

We've all seen the power of Jerk Store's design and what later became the Sen's heritage jersey. We should try to right another wrong. The 3D design of our logo was never as good as our original 2D logo.
Times have changed and we can't go back to the exact copy of the original but I'd be interested to see what everyone on here could come up with and come to a majority agreement on. I suck at photoshop and usually post from an Ipad so I don't really have a new logo design to contribute. I know a little bit about creating crests, badges and seals so from a conceptual basis I'd love to see what we could all come up with. From seeing the devellopment of my family's coat of arms I can tell you that you start off with basic elements and it takes off into something quite picturesque. The old 2D logo is awesome but could use some modern elements to it and we could create something that has a deeper meaning. Some of the elements that I'd like to incorporate are:

- The legatus, should always be a part of our design
- Red, black and gold, those are the colours with white a necessity because of home and away jerseys
- Laurel leaves, roman/greek significance

Throw whatever out there. No idea is stupid, please bring up any inconsistencies as far as the history of the club is concerned, random thoughts are encouraged. Let's come up with something that the organization has no choice but to consider!

We tried modernizing the 2D already. The results were 'meh' to say the least. They have yet to make a jersey appearance.

I think a few adjustments to our old profile logo would be my ideal choice as well, the new profile logo feels a bit too circular for my liking.



I didn't make the image above. I saved it because I liked the "uniform crest" logo, I don't think it is perfect but I do think it is a step in the right direction.

This might be a stupid question, but why couldn't we go back to the original 2d logo?

It would be interesting to see a poll about this, or in general about whether or not people like the current home/away jerseys.

I didn't really like the original 2D logo, not a huge fan of the 3D. They're both a little 'busy', I prefer a much simpler, cleaner design.

Yeah, we don't need to change anything and it would be among the best in the league IMO.

+1

All the great logos of sport are simple. The O is the best we've got so far, and I daresay the best we'll likely see on an Ottawa jersey for a while.

I believe I'm of the minority who likes the modern 2D. I always thought it would look great on a jersey.

It's ugly. MUCH uglier than the 2D or 1D logos.

I've always liked the original logo best.

I'm guessing they'll wait an appropriate amount of time before they can release it again as a "vintage" jersey and everyone can go out and buy new sweaters.

Get off the bath salts folks. Old school 2D and new school 3D are EQUAL.

End this thread now.

1D? Wouldn't that just be a straight line or something?

I like the 2D logo for nostalgic reasons, but I would much prefer a minimalist approach for a new logo. I have no real problem with the main 3D logo but if it were somehow simplified down to a more basic design I think it would look better. This is why my favourite Sens logo is the heritage logo, though I would argue that it may be too simple to have a main logo - it's definitely missing something.

So, IMO, the 2D and 3D logos too complex, and the heritage logo is too simple.

I think the 2D logo is the perfect amount of complexity. It truly was a great logo, whereas the 3D ones have been pretty bad. Bring back the 2D!

(But not the modernized 2D logo, bleh. The original 1992-1993 logo!)

I've always been a fan of the new 2d logo, but if we were to go back to 92-93 style jerseys (like Jerk Store's black concept), I'm on board with going back to the old 2d.

I would be okay with the current 2D on the jersey as above, though another bit I'd like the return of is the parliament building shoulder patch.

All this talk about the new 3D logo being "busy"... What? I'm no graphic designer but nothing about that logo is "busy" to me, you're eyes don't jump around the logo, there's nothing extraneous, it's just a different perspective. It has all the same elements as the 2D logo, if not less...

EDIT: That jersey TrueGrit posted looks awesome.

Bring back 2D video games. They were "fun" to play.

Great jersey. Although I'd rather we go back to standard letter/number font used in the early years.

Would love to see that logo on Jerk Store's black concept.
