If you're a diehard baseball fan like me, you probably have fond memories of ballparks that are no longer standing. My first MLB ballgame was at the Kingdome in Seattle where I was able to witness a young Ken Griffey Jr hit one out of the park (with that sweet, sweet swing) against my Toronto Blue Jays.
Though I cannot take away the heartbreak of your baseball youth, I can give a minimalist representation of the stadium where you grew up and learned to love the game.
Sports logos are some of the strongest brands in the world. A true fan can easily identify a team logo with merely the right combination of colors and shapes. So, I set about redesign all 30 NHL logos using my minimalist style to accomplish just that. Using zoom-ins and visual subtraction, I focused on providing just enough information to make each logo recognizable.

I'm an graphic designer, born and raised in Canada, but living in sunny Southern California. By day, I'm a corporate communications designer, and by night I draw, design, and drop the puck. So if you don't see me on the ice taking slapshots, you'll spot me in a corner of Starbucks with my macbook and a wacom, designing cool minimalist art.
