    Given that I watch this team more often than any others I'd wish for the Reds to wear this until the end of time

    We may not know who will own the Coyotes, but we know who owned Gary Bettman.

    The Reds from Cincinnati have one of those classic marks with a very high recognition value. However, the black 3-D shadows the club has added when they rebranded back in 1999 are very outdated. Therefore, they had to go – plus my mark now got a slightly thicker outline.

    I'll say what I've been saying for years. With proper ownership, and a little winning, any metro area of 2 million or more, in the US could work, for the NHL. Some places are going to be more of a fight. Some places can sustain bad, mismanaged teams, but "non-traditional" markets NEED to be well managed, if they want a chance. The Coyotes' problem is two-fold. Their team is poorly managed, which would make it a struggle anywhere in the metro area. Take a struggling team, put them on the outskirts of town, and you're compounding your problem. Phoenix is an area that could have worked, but it hasn't. It still could work, but that's incredibly unlikely. I want to see the Coyotes succeed, for three reasons. I live in Tucson, where their affiliate is. I am dating a die-hard 'yotes fan, and their continued existence allows me to go see my team once or twice, a year, without turning it into a big trip. Objectively, though, it's probably time to pull up stakes and move.

    A majority of these are not bad. Mark Martin's 2003 Viagra car: An objectively clean design. You might laugh at the sponsor (which I'm sure was the purpose of its inclusion), but the design is good. Michael Waltrip's 2013 Aaron's/Alabama car: Again, a clean, simple design. Most likely, this was posted because Alabama Crimson Tide = bad guys. Dale Earnhardt's 2000 Peter Max car: It was designed by an artist famous for his pop art of the 60s and 70s, for a one-off exhibition race. Loud? Sure. Bad? No. Ryan Newman's 2015 Caterpillar throwback car: This was created for a throwback race. Since Caterpillar didn't sponsor a car decades ago, they made a "What if?" scheme with their old logo. Not a bad design at all. Lake Speed's 1998 Cartoon Network car: The only design on the car at all is a cartoon cloud behind the front wheels. If anything, this is underdesigned, but not bad. Neil Bonnett's 1994 Country Time Lemonade car: It's literally the sponsor's colors. Yellow and pink for lemonade. AJ Allmendinger's 2013 Phoenix Racing car: This was Bonnett's team, paying tribute to him at his home track after his death. Identical scheme. If you're going to talk about the "worst Nascars" (and, holy crap, "NASCAR" is an acronym, not a type of car), at least be creative or descriptive and don't just post "lol it's pink."

    I never really liked any of those AHL league logos they have used so far. So I decided to modernize the mark, making it once again much simpler and cleaner. Gone is the rather cluttered look from the early 1970s roundel, including the explanation that AHL is the abbreviation for American Hockey League. I think the league has been popular enough to go without it. Colors remain the same: Royal Blue (PMS 286 C), Red (PMS 185 C) and white. Current AHL logo

    But proper ownership and the NHL tend not to go hand-in-hand. The guy who bought the Lightning for next to nothing is considered one of the greatest men who ever lived just because he didn't leverage the team for a real-estate scheme or turn out to live in his car.

    Well I'd outline everything in white so it's consistent and I think it looks more professional, but we've been down this road a million times. I like a white outline on gray baseball shirts. SORRY!

    For me it's more about the legality of it all. All the arguments on the morality of it and jerseys being too expensive is something that I'm not trying to get into. Your full disclosure instantly rubs me the wrong way, though, as it seems to try to excuse (and encourage) knowingly purchasing illegal merchandise. I think buying merchandise that is illegal to sell is not the same as buying off brand cereal. A better comparison would be rather than buying a $100+ jersey from a jersey retail, instead going to Kohl's or Target and buying a $30 jersey type shirt that is a jersey but isn't really a jersey. One is generic, the other is real. As opposed to one is an illegal fake, the other is a legal real. But seeing that counterfeit jerseys are getting better to me isn't a good thing. It just means that more and more crap is going to go up on eBay and more and more people are being deceived into buying stuff that they think is legit. It's not something I'm going to celebrate.

    I'm gonna rip into this one. I apologize in advance. First off, I understand you're new here. We all make mistakes. But you need to post a concept with your original post. Some of us read the rules, others learn the hard way. Obviously, you decided to pull a 180 in an 'Oh! You caught me!' kind of sense, but that doesn't make it any better. I'd advise reading the rules before you make any more mistakes. Next, I'm gonna criticize the logo. I know you're probably a beginner, and hell, I know my initial logos were terrible too, but I wish someone had told me how to fix them. What you need to do is choose a more unique font. Anybody can find the same font and produce the same thing. I also think there needs to be more spacing between the letters in 'FHL', less space inbetween the 'Since 2017' and 'FHL', and a more unique shield. I found that exact shield in Google right here. I know it seems like the easier thing to do, but be unique. Building on that 'be unique' idea, you need to differentiate yourself from everybody else. A better name, a better logo, and something that doesn't seem bland and generic would help you out. Something I've learned is not to pump out designs just because you need to. Get inspired, and go from there. Make some sketches, scan the paper, and trace over it in whatever program you're using. Anything to get a good idea from your head to the screen. Lastly, a non-logo related thing. Why the hell did you put a hockey team in Phoenix, New Orleans, and Las Vegas instead of Denver? I know I only had to list one team to replace, but all three of those are cities in which hockey cannot survive. That's all. I know it seemed rough, but don't let this hurt your graphic design career. I got all this too when I started, and I continued. I'm nowhere near professional, but I've grown a lot. Stick with it if you love it.

    Thanks a lot, joepro. The hockey stick is part of that logo for three reasons: 1. To graphically emphasize it's a hockey league (for those who don't know anything about it) because I already left out the explanation "AMERICAN HOCKEY LEAGUE" for the sake of simplification 2. To add a distinguishing characteristic to the shape of the shield, and 3. To get rid of too much unused negative (blue) space that the letter "L" creates

    I read it as an outdoorsy equipment company logo. The mountain and the HK together dont register as 'oh yea thats a dudes personal mark'. Maybe cause the mountain dominates over the initials...so its the mountains that are the focus, not the designer. The name below the mark helps a bit. maybe HEATH.K , H.KLEINDIEST, or KLEINDEIST DESIGN to move away from a fashion brand vibe? Logo is good.... communication is ehhh.

    I became a Jags fan because I loved their logo. Plus it's easier to cheer on an expansion team than to hop on another team with an established fan base. A shame they look awful now.

    Its the same for pretty much any old logo. They're usually not that well designed, but their history makes people love them. Its hard to detach yourself and look at them critically. I still think as far as old logos go Bostons is pretty good, and they've done an unparalleled job of keeping it updated and looking current throughout the decades.

    I didn't see the swastika when looking at your concept, but now that I saw it in a post, I can't un-see it. Clever concept nonetheless, just needs to be reworked. Also, I noticed that two corners aren't rounded, makes it look inconsistent.

    I don't know if this counts as a concept or not - it's not a full jersey, if that matters - but a few years back I tried my hand at combining the two Bruins logos, recolouring the modern serifed logo in the simplified, classic style. I coloured them a bit rough, but I think they look really good that way: I was actually inspired by someone on this very board, though I forget who; they had an avatar that was basically the yellow logo.

    These hats have been awful for forever and I can't believe they're still using them. That font, the drop shadow, the intersecting lines, the unnecessary star, the way it turns into an illegible blob from 10 feet away. The only way it could be busier is if they crammed an A in there. We need new baseball uniforms. This is the biggest problem facing our country.

    Unsurprisingly, the Timbers announced they'll be wearing their primary kits this Sunday in LA, so the matchup will essentially look like this: (but of course with the Timbers' new kit, pictured below) The kit lineup chart has still yet to be released, but I'll post it when it (finally) becomes available.

    For the Canucks to solve their identity crisis once and for all by ditching the former Orca Bay ownership-inspired logo with the cluttering 'VANCOUVER' and making Johnny Canuck, the inspiration for the Canucks name, the primary identity. "What the HELL is a CANUCK??" Well, here's your answer:

    Back with updates. Most of the grid is now finished so I will be posting a couple of concepts at a time. Then after that some bonus ones if any interest remains. I have included my original idea with the updated concept below. Mercedes So the updates to the 2017 car are pretty minor compared to the 2016 car but I do quite like the new design on the turquoise area of the car. The turquoise of Petronas and silver of Mercedes work well together so there wasn't really much need for change. A subtle update was the right decision, so I tried my best to recreate it. Again, removal of black from the engine cover and no shark fin or T wing. Red Bull So, another car where they have just moved their old livery onto the new 2017 design with some slight changes and that is satisfactory. Again, I have tried my best to just recreate it as I don't deem any changes necessary. A simple attempt at a shark fin here too.

    As was the case with the facemasks they can't use a color not in the team's designated primary color palette. So, they can't add athletic gold since it's not in the primary palette. Metallic gold is directly tied to Georgia. Compromise? Drop the gold in as many possible applications as possible until the team's allowed to change everything and by extension embrace another part of the team's LA history in the process.

    With absolutely nothing but a gut feeling to go on, right now I'd put my money on navy blue and athletic gold. Half-assedly splitting the difference would surprise no one.

    Calgary Express This identity is heavily based on the Royal Canadian Pacific train that starts its journey to the Rocky Mountains right there in Calgary. In the past express intercontinental trains of Canadian Pacific from Montreal to Vancouver passed and stopped in Calgary but since the moving of the main line up north through Edmonton and Jasper only recreational or holiday trains leave Calgary heading towards the mountains. The helmet wings are the same as the real CP locomotive striping. As already said the color scheme is the same as the train coating which consist of Glacier Powder Blue, Rockie Maroon and Dominion Gold.
