Someone just designed a new TTC logo
The TTC logo is one of Toronto's most recognizable, but that hasn't stopped a slew of designers from reimagining it over the years. Whether it be an academic exercise or merely the challenge of dreaming up a new version of something that's so ingrained in the city's consciousness, the allure of this particular redesign project is clearly very strong.
The latest attempt comes courtesy of Jacinto Salcedo, a local designer with roots in Venezuela. He took to the task as a creative challenge but also because he finds the TTC's current branding "extremely dated."
"We as Torontonians are used to it, but I have had people visiting from abroad who struggle to even read the letters on the actual logo," he explains over email. "This is my vision of what it could be... I think Toronto deserves better than what we have now."
I'm not sure that the TTC logo really is in need of a refresh, but I will note that Salcedo doesn't do away with the original design altogether. This effort would be best characterized as modernization. It's all just a hypothetical exercise, of course, but one that poses questions about the existing logo and whether or not it can be improved upon.
