Senators Concept

Recommended Posts

With all the discussion of late about how the Senators have an identity based on Roman, not Anglo-Canadian, history, and it's not even a Roman senator, but a soldier, which from a historical perspective is pretty freakin' wrong and all, I got to thinking.

My first thought is that I don't care about the above. I like the Senators logo and Roman theme.

But my second thought was, hey, English history gives us some parliamentary soldiers, too. We don't have to go all the way back to Rome for that. What would it look like, I wondered, if the Senators were to switch from a Roman soldier to a parliamentary soldier from the English Civil War, a Roundhead or New Model Army officer?

The answer is that it would look very plain, since the Roundheads wore relatively unadorned helmets that are best described as ... round. No giant stands of decorative horsehair on top or anything. So I soldiered on and threw elements of the Senators third logo at my concept to give it a bit more impact. I also tried to keep a strong O shape in the logo.

I wouldn't have the Senators adopt this exact logo, but I'm curious whether this logo points in a direction it would be worth pursuing.

I love the mustache. But, it might draw attention away from the overall good design. It's definitely the first thing I noticed. And since you went so detailed with the mustache, add the freaking leaf on the Canadian flag!

But the flag is supposed to be a barberpole reference! Anyway, I've got your tiny maple leaf right here, pal: :flagcanada:

:P

I think it is delightfully interesting and weird in the best sense. I suppose the tower and the leaf is a bit much (one or the other is good)...but that fella, and that historically accurate headware, is top notch. Great.

Yeah, way too busy. Either go with the clock tower and maple leaf, or the guy. I personally would prefer the guy if he had a little more detail in his helmet and face.

Hahahah. GREAT design, but the soldier is just too funny looking but the design itself is beautiful even if the concept is a little, uh, busy.

lol yeah the logo kind of makes you want to laugh more than anything. Sorry if that sounds harsh, but it's true. Good ideas though.

Good idea, might be a little busy still good concept.

Personally I would like the sens use the alt logo or an update something like King Leonidas from 300 w/ helmet of course.

I know this would make it look strange and mess up the colour scheme, but the Peace Tower just doesn't look right without the green/teal rooftop.
