I wonder if they will go back to the royal blue colour from the past or continue to use the darker blue? 

 

This has bugged me for a while. They wear royal helmets, pants and gloves, their jerseys are a little darker and their marchandise is all navy...

Everything I have read from those who have seen it say it's a return to the old logo style of the 1960's.  That regressing back to an old logo style.

 

This feels much like they are throwing the logo progression from The 1970's onward into the trash.  Sure, fans will love it, as it whitewashes over the "Ballard Leaf" era, but why pick just one?  Why not celebrate all eras of the Leaf logo?

 

 

Celebrating all eras of the Leaf logo would look like the monstrosity below. It's never a good idea to combine logos. Improving/updating one logo is a much better idea.

You compared what I had said to the Jays re-branding in 2004, which isn't at all relevant to my point of a logo evolving with time, not devolving backwards.

 

 

You honestly make no sense...

 

The Jays went from their original logo, to a very modern look, then went back to their original logo with some modern tweaks.

 

The Leafs are DOING THE EXACT SAME THING and you can't seem to grasp that.

My thoughts exactly.  Too many cooks in the kitchen.  If the Icethetics mockup is close, they'll never need to change again.  No need to give the Ballard leaf a participation trophy.

I "liked" it, and yet I hate it. :mellow:

If true, I'm completely okay with this. Cant wait to see the full set with uniforms and all.

That's the 1958 era logo not 1938. In the 50's the top part of the Leaf grew fatter.
 

Personally I like the idea but not the execution. It's too blocky. The original crests were so graceful.

I'm not sure which version I like better. They're both fantastic. 

 

I'll just have to wait to see the official release and a flat representation of the logo to make my judgments.

Agreed! The hoodie makes the logo look a bit distorted. I like that the veins are smaller on Icethetics' logo, though.

 

Can't wait to see the uniforms.

And there she is. I like. Very retro.  I like the little subtle details and the representations of and in the logo. Is it me or did they also go back the the lighter blue ?

It's extremely well crafted. There are going to be a lot of people in the general public who will think it's just the old logo, but everything from the kerning to the number of points sets this apart.

That's beautiful. I love that they've finally aligned the 'Toronto' part. Plus it seems like there's a bit more going on at the bottom too. Never thought I'd say this, but it looks better without the outline.

 

Even the Marlies look great!

Brilliant. I'll take a sweater and a hat. And a few t-shirts.

 

Glad to see the Leafs follow in the footsteps of their AL brethren.
