Nordiques Concepts in "Just Another Job"


Recommended Posts

Forgive me if this has been posted on the boards before, but in 1972 the National Film Board of Canada released a film called "Just Another Job." The film chronicles the first year of the Nordiques and the stories of its players. It's a fantastic hockey documentary you can watch on YouTube: https://youtu.be/evPkmSAZBdo


Around the 13 minute mark, the designer of the Noriques logo and uniform is interviewed and discusses his orginal concepts.  He explains that he originally developed a blue logo and jersey but was asked instead to do blue, white, and red. He explains that blue, white, and red were more establishment colors of another generation and associated with Montreal, but they work because they make everyone feel connected to the team.


Seeing the color concept I immediately think of the Nordiques' abandoned '95 rebrand. Also, this movie has amazing footage of classic WHA jerseys.
