Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins

Recommended Posts

I was just looking at the updated logo for the AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins, and was disappointed to see that the Golden Triangle (symbolic of Pittsburgh) had been added to the existing, different penguin used by WB/S.  That got me thinking about a more appropriate background, and after learning that Scranton is the Electric City and Wilkes-Barre the Diamond City, I came up with this rough concept.  I don't plan to do anything more with this, but I wanted to share the idea.

The concept is solid, but I'd try to integrate the bolts into the diamond more. They seem sort of tacked on as they are now.

Why not use the bolts to make the diamond???

Try a gem shape rather than a geometric diamond and just stick one lightning bolt somewhere in the available space.

Not a bad thought.  I won't go further than these quick mock-ups unless W-B/S actually wants one. 00858d52499d55eedc1ff429a934d68686115343

 

I also caught a gap in the earlier design, by the mouth.

While a diamond made of bolts is an interesting idea, I don't think I could pull that off recognisably.
