Atlantic Schooners CFL Expansion


WideRight

Recommended Posts

Seeing that discussion of CFL Expansion, and particularly expansion into the Atlantic or Maritime provinces (Halifax) seems to be back on the table, I thought I would try to design a more contemporary Altantic Schooners logo.  I wanted a unique color scheme for the CFL, and something oceanic.  What I ended up with is a bit Miami Dolphinesque (or a lot), but there are currently no CFL teams with a white primary (Montreal keeps flip-flopping with silver) and no team with teal as a primary color (now that the Argos have returned to double blue) so a teal, orange and navy color scheme is unique to the league if not to football. 

 

Thoughts?

Although I like the idea of the use of orange in the team colors, yes the double blue scheme is close to that of the Argos; so here's some suggestions:

 

Change to the 90's Argos team colors of. Navy, Teal, Silver and White

Wave/water - teal

Boat hull - navy

Sail/A - Silver

Helmet stripe : Teal - main/middle, silver then Navy

I really like it . Would be a much better logo than what they had for the original team idea.

 

As a reference to the logo for the proposed team of the same name from 1984: 5n4vkz63sswlou94uvq1kf7xn.gif

I agree with MSO94's assessment.  I think the colours could be made more unique.  Perhaps a teal or turquoise (what I see in the originating post is light blue), red, and gold, with white?

It’s a really neat logo, although I do feel that the way the bowsprit juts out is a tad too angular compared to most of the smooth curves of the rest of the sea/schooner composition. Soften it up a little and it would be a bit less jarring. 

 

I’m not a fan of the color scheme to be honest, way too Dolphinesque. The orange is quite random and not something I’d immediately associate to the Atlantic. Maybe a ‘colder’ purple? A bit similar to the Hornets, but at least they don’t play football, and Scottish rugby has occasionally used purple as trim. Plus there’s no CFL team currently using the color.
