  1. Appreciate the continued feedback Greg. I'm likely going to explore a strictly 2D version, and then also try and tweak the current to keep the energy that 3D allows. Will probably post it along with the rest of the identity once it is all finished.
  2. Yeah I think you may be right on that, the perspective could be a little skewed. Looked at it so long I can't really tell anymore.
  3. Been a year and some change, but never too late to get back into it right? My life has gotten much busier over this time off, and I haven't had too much spare time to dedicate to concept work. However, I've had some rough ideas just sitting in some illustrator files for awhile, for 4 or 5 teams. This Predators concept started sometime shortly after the Canucks was done. It's been in the wings for awhile, but I never had anything solid that I felt was good enough to post until just recently. I've revisited it again and again, and think I've gotten it to a point where I'm happy with it. So here it is: For something that has been in the works for so long, I don't have a whole lot to say about this one. Most notable change is obviously the color palette. I'm a huge fan of the Predators yellow that they currently use, and they've truly made the colour their own. I worked with a number of different palette options, and thought this one was an interesting look. I don't have much of a justification for it, I just think the colours work quite well together. Beyond the primary I haven't changed much. The secondary is just the guitar pick logo updated with the new colours. It's probably one of my favourite graphic marks in the league, and I didn't feel it needed any changing. The wordmark remains the same as well. Jerseys aren't finished yet, I've been messing around with a few different templates, and haven't settled on anything finite yet. But I've had the logo so long that I wanted to get it out there and get some comments on it. I hope to have the jerseys up by the end of the weekend, but nothing certain. Like I mentioned I've been staring at some iteration of this for over a year, and so I can't really look at it objectively anymore. There may be a glaring problem that I just don't see, and if so please point it out/any other graphic problems it may have. I'm excited to hear what people think. Cheers!
  4. Based on the Colorwerx tweet, as well as the V/helmet idea from the teaser, I wonder if it's a name that can clearly be related to a knight logo, but not include the name Knights...something like Las Vegas Valor? Not a great guess on my part but something like that.
  5. Very well done. I'd say the original or draft #1 works the best as far as the colours go. Just to nitpick, I'm not sure I see the point of the shadow on the ball, it's a bit of an eye-draw. As well, the font may work better without some of the little quirks, like the L and E having slants. However, those are probably just my preferences. No real flaws design-wise, like usual, all your work is super crisp and well designed.
  6. The K-Sword is very well done, nice work. The primary has a decent amount going on, but I'd say it achieves some solid balance. Custom font?
  7. Very well done. Only nitpick would be that I find it a bit odd having the secondary hawk head facing the opposite direction as the primary. Everything is well rendered though, and those custom sticks are great. Was that just part of the presentation, or is the school actually planning on getting some?
  8. Pretty well done, nice to see Studio Simon's work in hockey.
  9. Certainly an improvement over the one from a couple years back. I like the idea of tweaking a concept every year, acts as a good measuring stick. Everything here is very clean, no lines are really out of place, and the whole logo has a strong composition. I'm not sure the shading in the face works any better than the symmetrical version. I think what's out of place right now is that the way you've laid out the tiger, with the paws coming at you, is very aggressive, but the expression is very calm. A tiger probably wouldn't leap like that and keep a neutral facial expression. Take the head on its own and it works, but mix it with the paws and it looks a little disjointed. If you intend on keeping the leaping tiger, you may want to tweak the face so it matches the aggression of the action. Just what I'm seeing.
  10. I think you've done a nice job here, it's cleaned up but still has some minor league charm to it. I really like the turtle's expression. I might look at cleaning up the foot(flipper?) a little, and the 2 little white bits above the E catch my eye, but that's about all. Well done.
  11. +1 The Canucks current colour scheme is the best part of the identity hands down. That be said, I am a big fan of the logo. Good to hear from Canucks fans, fans of the team always bring a different perspective, and I definitely understand having attachments to your current identity. I fiddled with colours a lot more for this concept than I have with any of the previous 3. Looked at the Black/Yellow/Red, the Blue/Burgundy/Silver, tried out the Maroon/White they've used in heritage situations recently, and was considering adding light blue in. The version posted was very close to having a light blue outline. I settled on Blue and Green because it fits the Vancouver area really well, but I tweaked the blue to give the green a little more, I hate to use this word, but pop. The green itself is the same colour. Cheers to everyone else as well for commenting.
  12. You got it, Canucks are up next. I have no problem with the current logo/identity, but I'm a bigger fan of all the Johnny Canuck pieces they have, and so I based the primary off of that. Very simple, lumberjack head with the V. I came super close to working maroon in there rather than green, and also toyed with the black/red/yellow, but I couldn't bring myself to do that as a Flames fan. Secondary is based off of their recent heritage V logo, which I quite like. I did find it odd that it had 'Vancouver' in it rather than 'Canucks', so I changed that here. Jerseys are again, very simple. I'm not really one to go wild with jerseys, but I might bring out some experimentation with alternates. The arm stripes are based off of the classic Flying V jerseys. I wasn't sure if the NHL allows number placement on the arms like shown anymore, but placed them there for cleanliness' sake. Not much else to say, thanks for checking it out. I'm uploading this pretty late/early so please call out any errors if you catch any.
  13. Alright so I've been having some technical issues for awhile, but got them sorted recently, and I've been working on a fourth team. I'm also considering making some tweaks to previous teams, but the largest change will probably come in the Sens home jersey. Fourth team should be up soon.
  14. Thanks for posting this. Draplin is the man. Had the pleasure of meeting him in person and listening to him give a talk, super nice dude.
  15. Glad you guys are enjoying everything so far. @dgnmrwrw thanks again for the solid feedback. This point, "Right now, the only place in the entire identity where the red and gold touch at all is on the black uniform", is definitely something I didn't even pick up on, although I should have. Seems like the biggest problem with this one is the disconnect of the colours across the whole identity, and is certainly something I'll look into.
