Kukla's Korner Hockey
Entries with the tag: logo
Late Friday is typically when bad news is released, in hopes that it won’t have much traction over the weekend and will be forgotten/out of the news cycle by Monday. So I was initially surprised when it was announced that the Winnipeg Jets logo would be revealed at 4 p.m. CST last Friday. It made a lot more sense when I found out the logo was supposed to be released yesterday, but a grainy cell phone pic of the logo on a t-shirt started making the rounds on the Internet on Friday afternoon. True North decided to take control of the matter, and quickly rolled out the logo later that day. Winnipeggers responded by standing in line to hand over as much money as possible for as many Jets hats and shirts as they could carry.
I thought about firing off a blog the same day (or Saturday) with my reaction to the primary and secondary logos as well as the wordmark, but decided to let it all sink in for a bit instead. I picked up a hat and shirt on Saturday morning from a local sports shop (not the Jets Gear store in the MTS Centre, which had lineups out the door pretty much all weekend), and seeing the logo on an actual piece of clothing changed my opinion - at least on the primary logo.
Kukla’s Korner has launched a contest today at 99designs.com, inviting our artistic-minded hockey friends from around the internet to design a great new logo for the website
There’s a $200 prize for the best logo and we intend to implement the winning entry into KK’s new website design coming later this summer (with the hard work of Kevin at Venn Communications, I should add).
All the details can be read in the brief. Contest closes in 7 days.
Note: submissions must be submitted via 99designs.com. Please don’t email them to us directly as they will not qualify for the prize.
