Edmonton Oilers Concept Logo

Recommended Posts

The oilers already have a "gear" based logo and this is just another fun idea! Hope you like it!

C&C Welcome!

They need this as a shoulder patch for sure. I have always been a fan of the Oil Drop with the Gears on it but not many seemed to appreciate it. This should be a good compromise.

One thing though, I believe it was 5 teeth to represent Cup wins, have you tried this look with 5 teeth on it?

It was 5 bolts, but yeah, that would look good. My only complaint is the silver, and if this was going to be a shoulder patch, there wouldn't be any silver in the jersey, or other logos. But that's minor I guess

I do like this design, it would be a great shoulder patch. my only thing is the reflection on the oil drop doesnt look quite right . But that could be me. Very good work.

I agree. Could be a hair smaller in length to give it the proper illusion of it going around a sphere and not following the drip edge.

Or something like that.

Yea the highlight isnt quite right. I think it would be best without it actually, but if you want to keep it round out the bottom so you keep the sphere form if the drop.

I like it as a shoulder patch, but it could also be the main logo on an alternate uniform. Kinda like the Canes.

As an Oilers fan, I like this a lot. As previously mentioned, it'd be cool if you could somehow make the number of teeth equate to a number of relevance. Possibly 7 for number of jerseys retired? Or 12 for Hall of Famers? Or 17 (18 if you include Smyth for one game) for the captains. But I really do like this, and I could certainly see them using it.

As an Oiler fan, that's exactly what they need. I agree with SG89 that the number of teeth should have some sort of significance.

Take the reflection away from the oil drop and we're looking at a stronger logo.

Sorry it took so long guys! Thanks for all the suggestions! I took deked73 and SG89 ideas and i made another concept. 8 cogs representing the retired jerseys (only if Smythe gets jersey retired) and then i got rid of the off-centered reflection. Hope you like it!

Nice. I get the decision of using the 8 teeth for the gear, sorry to be nit picky but it reminds me of a symbol from star wars for some reason. Maybe alter the shape of the space between the teeth like how you had it in the first logo. bit it does look better without the reflection in my opinion

I agree, and yes the 5 teeth on the gear means the 5 Stanley Cups they won...

NO keep the reflection on the oil drop, it adds dimension and detail to it; without it, the logo looks too bland! Like the artist just put a huge blotch of orange in the middle...

The problem with dimensions on it is that the main Oilers logo is 2D. The gears on his logo are 2D so the oil drop should stay 2D as well - just like the drop on the main logo. I know it may look better, but then the teeth will have to have 3D shading and then it wont fit in with the main logo.

I prefer the first version. Too plain and flat now. Also it looks better with more teeth. Still looks good though.
