Evolution of the Current Buffalo Sabres Identity

Taken from the following thread over at the Chris Creamer Sports Logos Community:

http://boards.****************/index....ic=78613&st=20

These two pictures were included in the online portfolio of Frank Cravotta, the Director of Creative Services for the Buffalo Sabres. They include early sketches and designs of the 'slug' and the 40th anniversary jersey.





The really interesting part about the 'slug' concept is that the Sabres wordmark seems to have been originally planned between the NHL collar logo & the main logo, ala what Nashville did a few years ago with their mustard yellow thirds.

They should have just gone back to the original uniforms when they went back to blue and gold. I still hope that will happen one day, but switching jerseys again might not be good publicity right now.

I'm not sure who thought that logo was good idea, and for that matter I'm not sure who thought the grey piping on the current jerseys was a good idea.

Here's a hint: his first name begins with "L" and last name begins with "Q".

If they did a better job with the Buffalo, then the logo with the shield and swords behind it would've looked awesome.

Its embarrassing going to the Arena and seeing 3 different logos hanging from the rafters. Don't try and re-invent the wheel, take a page out of the Habs/ Leafs/ Wings/ Bruins book. If you want a new look do it with the 3rd sweater, don't deface a great logo with a goat head or a slug.

Another reason why Buffalo never gets to sit at the big boy table.

The numbers on the pants look interesting as well for the slug jerseys.

I'm glad with what they picked for this years 3rd. Glad they didn't go baseball style and have the numbers below the Buffalo script.
