    I'm curious what the team will promote as far as nicknames, I'm sure they don't want "Krakheads" and "The Krakhouse" to gain too much traction. 

     

     

    The "Krakheads"/"Krakhouse" jokes will get old even faster than the "Release the Kraken" call. Besides, I saw a fair amount of people calling them "Squids" already... 🐙

    ...As for the club name, it seems they are dead set on spelling out the "Saint" in "St. Louis"--funny since not even the post office does that there. Any particular reason for that?

     

    "Saint" and "Louis" are both 5-letter words, which does give it a nice balance, e.g. for logos, stadium signage, soccer scarves, etc. I guess that could be one aesthetic reason for spelling it out. 


  3. Gotta admit I wasn't in the Kraken camp prior to the release, but I'm also wowed over! I'll chime in into the songs of praise which are well deserved for this beautifully crafted logo and identity package. In regards to the meme critics - well, no denying that the #releasethekraken meme has some role in all this, but the brand had more than enough depth to go twenty-thousand leagues and more beyond it, once that meme becomes tired. 

     

    I got one question to @IceCap though, as he is so upset that the beast got tentacles rather than being a fish - Does it also bother you that a "Krake" refers to a type of octopus in Norwegian, Swedish, German and Dutch?

     


  4. Hi Big Red. 

    While I like the Coat of Arms as a whole, I think you're right, that the references to Bavaria and Ireland could be a bit more subtle. Maybe you can find a way to mash up some Bavarian/Irish symbols without just using their flags, e.g. include a Bavarian pretzel styled like an Irish knot design or something. What's the significance/meaning of the arm and arrow by the way?
