Calgarypuck Logo Finalists

September 3rd, 2014 | Posted in Commentary | By: D'Arcy McGrath

What better time to change the look of a site then when the hockey club is going through a rebuild of their own. Even better when said rework happens in August and acts as excellent filler to get rabid hockey fans out of the dog days of Summer and back into the hockey season.

First off we want to thank everyone for their creativity and vigour in designing numerous logos that were frankly much more professional than I ever could have expected.

Thirty some days, and well over 100 iterations of logo ideas and below we have 13 finalists that are set to go to vote to help me in picking a winner for the site.

To those that didn’t make the cut, I apologize, it would have been easy to have 20 in this group. I weighed what I liked, and comments I read from others on each logo to come up with what I think is a pretty solid group to choose from.

Thanks again everyone for your tremendous support!
