The Winnipeg Jets released three of their official logos yesterday (the uniform release will be at a later time). Phil will be covering this in more detail next week, but I was fairly underwhelmed. I think the leaf/plane primary logo was a solid idea for a logo (and was inspired by the Royal Canadian Air Force insignia), but the execution ended up being a little bland. The “wings” secondary logo is decent, nothing spectacular though. The wordmark, however, is a complete mess. I’m sure Paul will have more to say about this soon.
Update: Here’s a link to their “brand identity” gallery.
Update 2: Video from the press conference is available here (video on the right side of the page).
Added: Here’s a link to ESPN’s game photo gallery.
The Memphis Redbirds will be wearing organ-themed jerseys for “Organ Donor Night” on August 13th, which is a pretty hysterical promotion.
The Redbirds will be encouraging fans to sign up to be an organ donor at the National Foundation for Transplants table located on the concourse. Those who sign up or show their driver’s license that they are already a donor will be entered to win a keyboard organ donated by AMRO Music, a team autographed jersey, or a heart healthy basket from US FoodService.
