Been toying around with idea for new logo

Been working on this one for a while now. What do you think. I tried to capture the spirit of the city AND the spirit of the province "all in one"

Though it looks ok the Oilers have nothing to do with the city of Edmonton or the province of Alberta. They are a company.

Don't like that part of the logo.

Solid effort but I'm not a big fan, I don't see why we would need to write "Edmonton" inside the logo and ontop of that we aren't the only team in Alberta.

It takes a lot of guts to post your own work on a public forum though so kudos for that.

I would like to see the circle gone altogether. A different shape. Maybe the oil drop be the overall shape somehow. Gotta think outside of the circle.

Or multiple oil drops of different sizes?

No offense, but yuck.

Our logo is one of the best as is, no need to change it.

I'd rather the Oilers trade Hall then get rid of their incredible logo

Simmer down. The province doesn't work with the logo, and the fonts are worse. I don't have any ideas for a new logo. Why would I? Ours is great. And its pretty obvious the other posters in this thread agree. I give him props for trying, but it just doesn't work.

Maybe using the province as the outside of the logo would work better?

I was thinking something half as witty, good rip.

If we ever become the AHL affiliate of the Seattle Oilhawks, I'll definitely recommend this logo.

I actually saw this a while back while trying to think of ideas for an Oilers logo. It's a stock image for an oil company logo but I think it could be the basis of a decent logo.

The logo should not be messed with.

I do want a 3rd jersey, but just keep the logo the same.

I liked the Todd McFarlane logo, but I am not a fan of the one in this thread at all.

Calm the **** down

He posted it seeking opinions, if he didn't want honest opinions, he wouldn't have posted it

It is pretty terrible, in all honestly

Looks like an oil drop trying to get a wi-fi signal, or something. Not a fan of either. Sorry. Original is just so much better. Unless you can trump the original, why bother?

Nothing would ever be improved upon if the world thought and acted like this. People need to hear criticism in order to improve

I doubt many on this board could produce something better, but we arent the ones looking to change the logo. Most people here also have an idea of what a good logo would look like.

For me, I prefer the classic logo, but I also dont mind this logo, and would like to see it updated and maybe thrown on to the front of the 3rd. Take away the triangle background and update the colours

jesus, what is your issue lol. You don't need skill in the arts in order to have an opinion on what you do and do not like. I'm sure there's plenty of music, film, books, games, poems, etc that you don't like and could easily critique. But you're not required to make something better than the thing you're critiquing such that you're justified in making your criticisms. Also, perhaps he is capable of creating a better logo for the team, but if he's content with the current one, why would he waste his time 'improving' it? Very immature response.

I think the logo is bad, it looks like a kid made it for a school project. First of all the image of the province doesn't fit, it's shape doesn't flow with the circular logo. I don't like the the font of the word 'edmonton' it seems like it was just chosen randomly because it looks different. Plus, the word edmonton doesn't need to be on the logo, it's adding unnecessary clutter.
