Sport Billy got me thinking a bit more about the Whitecaps badge. It has had two major versions, as most people know: the "retro", and the modern "comic" style. While they differ in style, they do not at all differ in elements: - a wave rising on the right and rolling left with the "whitecap" centred - four main components of the wave - a soccer ball larger than the wave, but centred in it - some form of the team name above it - a lighter blue accenting a darker blue (tho not DARK blue, since they use royal blue as the darker shade) Where they do differ is that the comic logo has: - alternating colours in the component parts of the waves - additional lined on the sides of the shield, forming a wide-"V" But SportBilly's offering made me wonder about the possibility of adding elements to the badge, or serious changing existing elements. What could we add? What could we change? It is simple and classic, I personally wouldn't want to change it too much. I want the four basic elements to remain (well, the team name above the badge I don't care about so much), but what could you add? Mountains (suggested by someone) works against the badge in two ways: 1. It takes away from the focus on the wave, splitting the iconicity 2. It makes the badge VERY busy 3. The Rapids already are using a mountain motif as their team identity, and I respect that Sport Billy suggested a "castle" motif along the top of the shield, but it doesn't have much to with Vancouver (I think he mentioned it was on the flag - but it is not on the flag of thee city of Vancouver, so I am not sure what he was referencing.) What it did make me realize is that adding any more major elements to the badge looks VERY busy.
