    NHL changes 2019-20

    I agree that green in the orca doesn't work. That being said, there are way too many strokes in that logo. Self-promotion, but I'd like to see them simplify along these lines:

    Kalamazoo Wings ECHL Concept

    Both logos are very very strong. IMO you should either darken the silver or lose it completely though.

    Cool idea on the screen but the material would have to be really reflective for there to be any contrast. Even the current Hurricanes third jerseys just turn to greyish mush on the screen.
  4. I'll say it - I honestly like the old one better. It's about the poses I think - the old one is neat and symmetrical while the new one looks a bit more haphazard. I think a version of the old one where the torso isn't as slim would be the best of both worlds.

    but this is a concepts forum
  6. Happy New Years folks. This is a very quick NHL jersey series to start off 2019, very straightforward. I've made my ideal NHL, which means a lot of teams have new looks while some stay the same. Instead of the traditional "starting with the Anaheim Ducks and going alphabetical" route, this one will go division by division presenting the uniforms together as a whole. One thing I always find too bad about the team by team format is you lose the beauty of every teams' uniforms and colours together and the unity of the league. It also makes it way more possible for me to actually get to every team and jersey instead of stopping at Buffalo or Calgary like so many attempted series. I tried this format with the QMJHL this summer and really liked it. Some people critiqued it for not including things like jersey numbers, which I understand, but considering my time constraints I would rather put out a full league than stay on hold for months. First thing's first: Here's what my NHL looks like. I'll be starting with the Central Division.
  7. Just gonna give this one final bump.
  8. Appreciate the input. The Caps logo edit is definitely something I wrestled with, the white does kind of distract the eyes.
  9. Final post in this thread for a while, by all means I would still love to hear comments on all the concepts I've posted here. 4/4: Metropolitan Division Ah the Metro, home of my beloved Penguins. There's a lot to like visually in this division. The Hurricanes keep basically the same design; I honestly like their logo and I thought their jersey update was very solid. I would change to black pants however to get some continuity between the pants and the hem. I just can't get on board with making the cannon illustration the primary for Columbus, so the star logo remains. I made the striping just a little more classic as well to match the socks. The Devils go back to what worked and should never have been changed. The Islanders actually through back to the right jerseys this time: the dynasty rather than their inaugural. The Rangers don't mess with what works, nor do the Flyers (whose collar is just less stupid). The Pens add some gold to the hem for continuity. Finally, the Capitals stick with their basic Stanley Cup-winning set but with some modifications; no more awkward connection between the white and the collar, no more weird side panels, a hem stripe, and an updated Weagle on the front. Thanks for checking out this series guys, hope you enjoyed it. When I get the chance I'll update with away jerseys and alternates (and maybe even Seattle).
  10. Totally fair, the NHL graphic I used as the template for the OP was used to announce the realignment after expansion so I was stuck with Seattle. I'll come up with something though as an update soon.
  11. I'll get there, the process of designing a whole new team identity is a bit out of the scope of this redesign but I'll probably do one soon.
  12. It's the same template?

    stadium series 2020 logo concept - jersey update 1/6

    I would say there are just too many shaped. Pick one and run with it.
  14. Gonna bump this quick before I post the Metro.
  15. 3/4: Atlantic Division The Atlantic Division is... Well, a lot of blue and red. I tried to make some changes to shake things up a little bit. For Boston, I returned to the Bobby Orr jerseys but with the current logo. The Sabres go back to Royal blue with a design based on their Winter Classic sweaters and a logo without the ring around the Bison or Sabres. The Wings are the Wings. Florida embraces their 90s beauty using the updated Panthers logo.The Have brighten up a bit and get a white hem. The Sens find a happy middle between vintage and modern. The Leafs ditch the weird single hem stripe and get shoulder logos. Finally, the Lightning get some uniqueness again, going to Navy and adding the only white shoulders in the league.
  16. Most likely in the spring unfortunately. I always do these when I visit home from school; I finished up the league before I flew back out today and will be revisiting things next time I'm home.
  17. Thanks for the comments guys! Expect the Atlantic division sometime tomorrow. If anyone has any more comments feel free to post!
  18. On that happy note, here's the next division. 2/4: Pacific Division Finishing up the Western Conference is the Pacific. I think this division also has a lot of visual flair and variety, and the changes I made were meant to accentuate that. To me the Anaheim Mighty Ducks colours are so iconic and sharp that there was no point messing around with orange and black. I think the Coyotes also deserve the personality of the Kachina stripes on a more modern jersey than the muddled dark throwback; I also used an updated and simplified logo. Calgary and Edmonton are very straight forward, simple, bold, and classic. Los Angeles and San Jose similarly receive throwbacks to my favourite of their eras.With the Canucks after a long time messing around with the stick-in-the rink and Johnny Canuck logos I actually decided I liked the orca best - however, I did mess with the logo a lot to modernize it a bit, meaning the lines are a bit simplified and the ice shards have been removed. Finally, Vegas did a nice job on their jerseys but I still don't like those red stripes. I also made the gold a richer colour.
  19. Comes directly from the site so I'm gonna blame Chris Creamer on that count. Also the teams are in their current division, so Arizona will be in the Pacific group tomorrow morning.
  20. 1/4: Central Division The Central Division is my favourite division from an aesthetic perspective; bright colours, no one shares a primary shade, and they look great together, Almost every matchup in this division looks great. As a result, I didn't mess too hard with a lot of the looks. However, I did make small changes to each team. The Blackhawks got back the gold outline around the logo, which I've always been very fond of. I love the new Avs jerseys but I think the logo looks really out of place on it; I got rid of the xtreme canted oval, added a stronger silver outline, and simplified the lines on the puck. Dallas' logo also got a simplification just to get rid of the beveling. I returned Minnesota to its more classic looking design. Nashville's white trim got a bit stronger and the logo is now single-outlined in white. St Louis ditched the random thin line between the yellow and gold stripes. Finally, Winnipeg got a total refresh using a previous logo design I made and a more red-focused jersey. As always, C&C appreciated. Pacific division coming soon.

    NHL 2018-19

    This is an unpopular opinion, but honestly with the D on the front instead of the wordmark those wouldn't have been so bad. Definitely better than the absolute mess they wear now.

    NHL - identity refresh concepts

    Remove the circle from the A, it's a nice refresh but doesn't scale well at all with the circle. Jerseys are a bit plain, and I think burgundy should still be their main colour.

    Bad Jersey Sightings

    The fact that that's literally an all star jersey should give some sense of how 2004-era Roloson doesn't belong in this thread.

    Yeah honestly athletic gold jerseys that don't have Pooh on them are like catnip for me.
