Mangiapane’s very bad Flames logo design now on T-shirt
It’s a bad design for a good cause.
Everyone had a good laugh at the Calgary Flames forward AndrÃ© Mangiapanethe artistic interpretation of the team logo a few weeks ago during the NHL media tour in Toronto.
In terms of accurately portraying what the Flames logo looked like, it was – how can we say that nicely – inaccurate. The “C” was asymmetrical and thin, and the flames coming out from the rear were far too few and rounded. Here, look :
But Mangiapane clearly did his best, and it resonated with his teammates and fans alike.
The “art” piece has been updated with color and put on a T-shirt available for sale at the Flames Team Store.
Best of all, the proceeds will go to the University of Calgary’s Hotchkiss Brain Institute, which works to find âinnovative solutions for neurological and mental health disordersâ.
Mangiapane discussed the jersey with the media on Friday.
“I think they like it. I think the guys are laughing at me, but I think they’re just jealous,” Mangiapane joked.
“Everyone wants a t-shirt,” said the defender Erik Gudbranson.
âIt wasn’t the best drawing, but hopefully I’ll work on those skills a bit later,â Mangiapane said.
