Tampa Bay Lightning New Logos

Recommended Posts

So let me get this straight. I hear people complain on here quite a lot about how a logo is too complex, and then you get this, can't get much more simpler than that and people still complain. Wow. (BTW, I'm not saying I like it, but it's not bad either.)

It takes time to get used of change, eh? But so far, I hate it today even more than I did yesterday.

Plain and simply put: It's an Epic Failure!!

Because pure and utter simplicity isn't the goal. If you burn a batch of cookies, you can't serve the next batch raw and then ask "well what more do you want me to do?"

They just showed the new jerseys on the Flyers / Lightning broadcast. Man, the road looks awkward with the wordmark over the oval.

A couple of thoughts (in addition to my suggestion that they use electric green or yellow):

1. They need black in there. As much as their uniforms have sucked since inception, they've always used black prominently.

2. They could really use sleeve or shoulder detail. I'm thinking that if they want to clone the Red Wings, why not put black sleeves on the blue jersey (and blue sleeves on the white jersey)?

TA-DA, the new TB Lightning Logos that were unveiled today. Simple & Clean IMO - I hope our TB fans like 'em. Chris Creamer also has them posted on the Logo Site.

A happy medium, I can see that.

Can we boil this down? Its simple... The Lightning used to be ugly, now they're boring. Which do you consider worse?

In my book, Boring is a greater sin than Ugly. Ugly at least makes the uniform memorable.

My quick photoshop tweak of the new logo so it doesn't look so plain. I know the silver doesn't belong in the colour scheme, but it had to be done.

It would be real cool if someone with actual skill on here could fix up this idea and make it look nice. I think it has potential.

you forgot the 3 howling wolves ^_^

Victory stripes are the dumbest idea that anyone ever had for a hockey uniform.

Yeah they were dumb, but they were definitely a unique aspect of their uniforms that everybody (sports geeks like us) knew.

They should figure out a way to make the armpits equipped with scrolling LCD's that someone can program for a specific occasion like "Victory" after a win or "Goal!" after a goal or "goal, but we're still down 4".

You don't rip off the New York Yankees or the Boston Celtics or any other historic franchise. The Leafs fall into that category.

You wouldn't say their own city-mates ripped off the Yankees with their redesign?

They later added a few things to make it less Yankee-ish, but especially the initial RAYS reveal was basically Yankees farm club level.

Not at all unless you count navy blue and even then it's a deeper navy, almost black. The Rays dark blue is more towards royal. That's without mentioning that the Rays do use a columbia blue. The Rays use placket piping while the Yankees use pinstripes. I would never consider the Rays uniforms to be ripoffs of the Yankees. If anything, there were just an attempt to cash in on the double blue craze. The differences far outnumber the similarities.

The Marlins came closer to ripping off the Yankees than the Rays did, but they've retired those alternates.
