The Daemyung Killer Whales changed their logo

Daemyung Killer Whales new logo


According to the team news release, the team changed the “brand identity (BI) to make a new leap for the 2017-2018 season.”

“The new emblem adds a three-dimensional effect and color. The big frame is a puck flying toward the goal, and it was designed in the form of wind with the motif of Daemyung Group CI (Corporate Identity). At the center of the emblem, the tail, which stands for orcas, jumped into the puck, expressing a dynamic and challenging team color. The initial logo was engraved in English according to the direction of the emblem.” (Google translation)
