So the Nashville Predators changed their logo? I could hardly tell.
The Preds recently took to designing a new look for the team, redesigning the existing logo and creating an alternate. Well a quick scan shows little in the way of a new shape, mostly just a change in the color scheme. Remember how the fans were all decked out in orange/gold for the playoff run? Yea, well that color is getting a more prominent placement.
From the team's website:
This week's launch is the conclusion of a lengthy process which included fan focus group input, input from season ticket holders, meetings with the Reebok NHL design team, designed to showcase a more contemporary and aggressive look by streamlining the original logo with tweaks like shading on the teeth and adding a distinctive gold color band through the logo.
As for the rest of the logos? Well there's nothing really earth shattering. What is new, though, is a second logo which I'll admit is a little bit creative. It's in the shape of a guitar pick -- get it? Music City? -- and has the Stars of the Tennessee state flag.
The last two parts of the rebranding will come in new uniforms, the road look to be unveiled at the draft this weekend while the home version will be released sometime later this summer.
