Toronto Blue Jays logo

The new Toronto Blue Jays logo isn’t going down too well, and I agree with Jakub’s critique.

If it were up to me, I’d have altered some elements of the original, such as the stitching of the baseball, but the maple leaf and colour red would’ve been kept. Then again, I’m neither Canadian, nor a fan of baseball.

Must admit, I’d seen the Barclaycard logo of late, but what so bemused with the swirly spheretical icon, that I hadn’t even noticed the “floating Y” as — Ben Terrett describes it.

I think it’s a good-looking logo, but with any scope, true meaning or communication.

I like the lean part of the duckfart.

And about the logitech logo, usually I just ignore it. I don’t really understand what the logo is trying to tell me. I’d rather think about the product itself, which mostly mouse and keyboard.

Marnie, my pleasure. Enjoy the weekend.

Bimmer, that was a coincidence!

Preston, George, MP, thanks for reading, guys.

Bob, as far as I’m aware, the Blue Jays logo was recently updated with some new type, hence the publicity.

Jacob, no worries. Glad things are working out with your logo site.

As a Blue Jay fan, I know that here in Toronto, the new logo has been a complete success story. The old logo was due for a rebrand and the team gets revenue from everybody buying updated jerseys. The new logo is modern and sleek and the Jay is more fearsome-looking. You should also see the full log (not just the insignia); search “Jays Logo” on Google Images and you will see it is dynamic and now the team has one of the nicest logos in the League.
