CSKA ice hockey club logo and corporate identity

• OverviewProcess IProcess II
Task:
to create a corporate identity.

CSKA is the symbol of Russian and Soviet ice hockey, the country’s oldest club whose history is closely intertwined with the history of the sport itself, home to a plethora of legendary players and dozens of Olympic champions. A logo and a corporate identity for the club were created at the studio.

Traditional logo

The red and blue star and the letters CSKA arranged in a characteristic step-like pattern resemble of the traditional text on club uniforms of the 1970—1980s. The shape of the star has acquired the classic outline.

For the first time in the club’s history it now has a mascot, the Horse in the club’s signature colors.

Other elements of the style retain the star geometry which establishes style consistency.

The logo, the emblem and the mascot are actively used on various media from jerseys and the club bus to advertising posters and souvenirs.

Uniforms

All three symbols are used in the design of the uniforms. The main logo with the star is placed on the chest.

Following an old tradition, the club’s emblems can also be found on the numbers on the back. The club’s emblems can also be found on the numbers on the back.
