It’s been a while since Ty Hill has submitted any new concepts to Icethetics, but he’s back today with a new take on the Carolina Hurricanes. He writes:
I’ve never been a fan of the Hurricanes logo, especially given the incredible shoes they had to fill from the Whalers—in my opinion, the greatest sports logo of all time.
So I tried to design a logo, like many others before me no doubt, in the spirit of the Whalers logo—specifically incorporating the letters of the team’s city and name as well as visual representation of the name (the hurricane warning flag). I did this while trying to stay true to the Canes brand identity. Finally, I’m a diehard for simple logos and designs that look classic.
I have to say this is one of the best attempts I’ve ever seen at bringing the essence of the Whalers design to the Hurricanes. Simple and right on the mark.
Ty also created road and alternate jersey designs as well. You can see those by tapping the Extra Images tab.
