    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.

    Penguins Alternate Fix-Up

    Yep, that's perfect.

    Penguins 3rd

    Yeah looks pretty good to me.

    No, it's not, it's been 20 years, get over it. The only reason anyone remembers the Whalers is that logo and maybe Gordie Howe playing a season for them 40 years ago. They're wearing the jersey on the ice twice. It's fine.

    ECHL | Utah Grizzlies Rebrand

    It does have a kind of teddy bear vibe to it. Maybe roughing it up a bit would change that? I think the smoothness of it is throwing me off. Technically extremely well-done though of course.

    Quick Basketball Logo Feedback?

    Yeah smooth out those shoulders, the bulging is a bit weird. Other than that, great.

    Ducks Go Mighty Retro for New Third Jersey

    Don't like the yoke at all. Don't really get why it's there either.

    NBA | Indiana Pacers Rebrand | Update: NIKE Uniform Set

    The alternate roundel is my favourite part of the logo set by far. Great stuff. I don't love the basketball in the primary logo; I think the checkers and different colours are throwing it off a bit.

    AHL Rebrands: Binghamton Devils

    Very cool, but something about the general shape of his head/facial expression is throwing me off. It kind of looks like his mouth is just hanging open (or he's letting out a very relaxed roar). Excellently rendered for sure, but with a few touches it could be perfect.

    Point1's OHL Rebrand (9/20: Guelph Storm)

    Wow guys, really wasn't expecting to see new responses to these. Will hopefully be returning to this project in December. Really appreciate the kind words. The Q is my home league so I'm excited to eventually give them a go too.
  13. Happy Holidays everyone! Since I'm at home for the next few weeks I have a chance to work on a new project. Inspired by 72freebie's awesome CHL series, I'm going to undertake a full rebrand of the Ontario Hockey League. Some of you might remember my NHL series, which isn't completely dead, but spending a lot of time in OHL barns this year has made me think about how outdated and often inexplicably weird a lot of their branding is. I really like older junior logos that are simpler and more to the point, without growling mascots or cartoons - the ones that stand the test of time. That's the style I'll be going for here. #1 - Barrie Colts The Barrie Colts have existed in the OHL for over 20 years, always with the same logo. While I applaud that consistency, their cartoon horse mark doesn't do it for me at all. The mascot looks on the verge of tears, and it suffers from unnecessary hockey stick syndrome. My new mark - undeniably inspired by the Montreal Canadiens - uses the horseshoe as a C and simplifies things a lot. Like the Habs, I chose not to use a distinct secondary logo and let the primary stand on its own. The secondary on the logo sheet is a jersey mark, and the tertiary is to be used on the pants as well as a possible future third jersey. As for the jerseys, Ontarians will notice that they might be more appropriate for a Kingston uniform, but the combo of navy red and gold looks best in my opinion without being diluted by white. I used the front stripe on the home jersey but chose to accent the arms instead of the chest on the aways. C & C appreciated as always. Next up, the Erie Otters.

    Tampa Bay Lightning Recolor and LA Kings Rebrand

    Navy would look a lot better.

    NHL Alternates - Predictions and Wishlist (all teams posted)

    Awesome, your thread last year was my favourite of the summer. Better get Arizona and Carolina out quick.

    Winnipeg Blues (MJHL) rebrand concept

    It's a cool logo but I have two problems with it 1. It looks like it's supposed to be FW because it's a 16th note rather than an 8th note. 2. The W kinda looks like a butt

    NHL 2017-18

    Uh agree to disagree. Squint at that logo and tell me what it is.
  18. Hey guys, I haven't really had the time (or patience) for the big logo redesigning kind of stuff lately, and the third jersey predictions I made in my other thread kind of inspired me to stick with that very to-the-point designing. While I do have a dormant (for now) OHL rebrand thread, this is a chance for me to just focus on jerseys. Gonna start with my hometown (and too-often neglected) QMJHL. #1: QMJHL - Maritime Division Bathurst (Memorial Cup Champions) did a lot right with their redesign, but I stripped the script from their logo and simplified their stripes away from the Jets template. For the Eagles, I added a gold stripe to the shoulders and went with a roundel instead of their very busy primary. For Charlottetown I scrapped their whole ugly, muted colour pallet and gave them the only royal blue jersey in the league. Halifax, admittedly my hometown team, got sharper striping and removed the phantom yoke. Moncton scrapped the inexplicable royal blue, simplified the logo, and gave them arm striping. Finally, St John simplified the Sabres template they use now into something a little more striking. C&C appreciated as always.

    Point1's Adidas CHL - QMJHL complete!

    I did! But because the pants would be blue the gold trim did the job just fine I thought. Here's the final QMJHL one: #3: QMJHL - West Division Finishing up we have some of the coolest looking teams in the league. Starting with the Armada, I changed nothing there because damn do they have an awesome identity. For Drummondville I went with bold, simple stripes incorporating silver trim. Gatineau went back to dull black and silver (ripping off the Armada), so I darkened their old purple and brought back orange. The Huskies have a cool logo but awful gradient jerseys, so I got a bit more to the point. Similarly, the Phoenix have an old Blues template with pretty cool colours, so I kept the modern striping while simplifying it. Finally, went with a double green for Val D'Or and made the gold a bit more golden.

    Point1's Adidas CHL - QMJHL complete!

    #2: QMJHL - East Division Moving (ironically) west, we get to the East Division. First up, Baie-Comeau has had really ugly sweaters and boring Flames colours for a while so I thought I'd change it up. The blue from the logo is now the secondary colour, and I really like how the shade looks with red and gold. Chicoutimi simplifies to their old design again, no more gross piping. The Remparts are a good looking team already so I just got rid of the unnecessary thin red stripes. Rimouski I think also look pretty cool now so I made their grey a bit bluer and tinkered with the stripes but nothing too dramatic. Shawinigan was a big one because I hate their logo and their jerseys. I changed their colours to gold and navy and brought back their vintage logo. Finally another colour change for Victoriaville, who now wear orange and navy,

    Point1's Adidas CHL - QMJHL complete!

    I get that for sure, this is the first time I've done it like that instead of the team-by-team. My main thing is that with my technological limitations, numbers/NOB is insanely time-consuming (since I didn't get any of the font files before they got taken down) and I'm only home for about a week. Plus I think there's kind of something to be said for seeing the whole league as an entity rather than as divided up teams - I kind of liked the Adidas thing from when they revealed the jerseys last year where it was a sheet with every one on it together. I will most likely finish up the league with this format and then go back and add in numbers.
  22. Winter break means... not a lot to do so I can try to jump back into some jersey and logo concepts! This is hopefully be a series that will cover every NHL team. Some of them will get brand new logos, not all of them. I'm gonna start off with two rebranded teams: the Blackhawks today and the Avs tomorrow. Often designs I used will be influenced by other designers, and I'll try my best to give each of them credit. 1/30: Chicago Blackhawks Without having a huge political argument over whether or not the Blackhawks logo is offensive, I've always liked the idea of using a literal hawk in the logo instead of the Chief. This is obviously influenced by Mike Ivall's original design, as well as Brandon Moore's recent crack at it as well. As aesthetically appealing as the old shoulder logo was, I think the tomahawk motif is a bit outdated so I went more straightforward. I chose a path closer to the 60s-90s logo, where in normal application the Hawk has no outline, but on the jersey it has a gold outline. The jerseys are consistent with the ones now, although I changed the numbers on the aways to better balance out the red and black compared to now. C&C is of course appreciated, and I'll have a new Avs logo and jersey tomorrow!
  23. Thanks for the comments guys, here's part 2:
  24. I mean, navy was never really in their look to begin with so it's not crazy to think they might pull it out of their ass again.
