Quebec Major Jr Hockey League (QMJHL) logo

Quebec Major Jr Hockey League logo
Since 1969, when the league was founded, it has had at least two logotypes. The old Quebec Major Junior Hockey League logo featured the initial letters of the league’s name in French (LHJMQ). The lettering was given in a very unusual and creative script. The “L” and the “J” formed hockey sticks facing one another. In between, there was a shape bearing a vague resemblance to an “H.” Although this looked like a fresh and unusual design idea, in fact, the emblem was barely legible.

In the next version of the QMJHL logo, which was unveiled in 1994, the first three letters were made better legible. We can’t say that the wordmark was now really easy to read, though.
