NHL Comic Sans Series (Update 5/4)

Recommended Posts

I'm sure most of you are aware of the reputation that Comic Sans has in the design community, but for those who are unaware, it's regarded as one of the worst, most amateur fonts you can use. I'm sure less of you are aware of its usage in memes and s**tposting, often being used ironically to create humor by intentionally using it to mock it. With my combined interest in both of those, I one day had the bright idea of redesigning NHL logos that make use of text or a letterform, but use Comic Sans.

 

Let's start out with a bang.

Love this. Looks like a really crappy counterfeit, but that makes sense given the guidelines. Look forward to seeing more!

In all seriousness, I love it. You should do a Wingdings and Papyrus set too.

I almost spit out my drink when I saw that logo :lol:.  I hope you are planning on doing all 31 teams.

Bruins did your job for you with their 2010/11 Winter Classic jersey logo. ;) Down the road in this series, these would be awesome to make anti-fan merch, like this on the horrible barber pole Habs jersey, some lame name pun on the back e.g. "Droulin", every number's 69 etc. Just a thought.

It'll be interesting to see what you do for teams without letters in their logo

Well like I said in the first post, I can really only redesign teams whose logo makes use of text or a letterform, but fortunately every team has at some point or another in their history used some sort of letter-based logo, so while I won't be doing every teams primary logo, every team will still be involved in some way. The only team I have to reach for a bit is Carolina, where I'll need to use their not often seen (and possibly obsolete) wordmark

 

Thanks for all the feedback guys! Let's move on with the next installment in the series by ruining enriching yet another classic look.

This series is <chef's kiss> perfection.  BUT... the actual logo of the Maple Leafs is still too well-designed.  If the Comic Sans guy was also designing the logo, wouldn't that also have to be an equally lame execution?  Yes, I realize I'm demanding far more work that I don't have to do, but I'm expecting greatness with this thread.   Chop chop!

I agree with this.  It currently doesn't look too different than their normal logo, while the Canadians logo is purely hilarious and perfect.

Understandable. However, my main idea with this series was just to replace textual elements with comic sans, so re-doing the entire logo in cases where the entire logo isn't text somewhat defeats the purpose if you ask me.

 

However, I do still like that idea and am very open to doing this after the semester ends and I have some more time to myself. As of now this is just something fun and quick I can do during my breaks or during class when I'm bored, as I admit it involves little thought and creativity and not much of a requirement for neatness either.

 

As a quick little bonus for you guys since it's not much different, here's Toronto's old logo.
