    NHL Refresh Series - "Desecrating" the NHL

    Dallas concept: I like the Texas logo use of the home and away jerseys, that logo fits the jerseys better than the D-star on its own (to many sharp points). I don't mind the oblique angles on the waist stripes, but you should consider making both the waist and arm striping either two white stripes or two silver stripes to flank the black stripe; the use of the silver-black white progression here takes away from the jersey. Oddly enough, the same striping pattern works better on the black jersey. The liberal use of green also breaks up the black nicely. The Dallas block letters for a logo are not a great choice though; I'll take any non-text logo over a wordmark logo, even the Mooterus. If you realign the slope of the script to run parallel with the waste stripe, it might work better. Aside from those minor critiques, great update!

    NHL Refresh Series - "Desecrating" the NHL

    Wow, that's a hot set coming right out of the gate! Home: I love the darker red and the complete removal of white striping from the red jersey. It actually makes me like the white Flaming C (which IMO looks terrible on the classic flames red throwback). The lack of white elsewhere makes the C pop. Road: A good continuation of the home jersey's basic patterns. I think extending the yoke a bit and rounding it off would make it great. Alternate: Too much black. On the home jersey, the lack of white was a plus. Here, a bit of white striping is needed. And maybe swap the use of yellow and red. Overall, a great stab at a set of jerseys that no one seems to be able to get right.

    Fixing the CFL

    Awesome start. You kept everything good about the Alouettes (basically the colours) and discarded the rest. Beautiful logo. One thing: I'd go with a thinner stripe on the helmet or no stripe at all. Let the wings of the logo be the striping.

    The Battle of Seattle

    Holy Cow, bow down on the Nor'Westers design! I love the NW motif, especially on the secondary. It's a great reference to the Seattle Mariners nautical logo. A few suggestions: Loving the plaid with ochre highlights, but I think it might work better with greener shades. Maybe forest green and kelly green instead of teal and seafoam. Maybe smooth the corners on the nW primary logo, but not to Whalers levels. I'm not sure Nor'Wester is an actual thing, unlike Nor'Easter. But NorWester is better than "Seattle NorthWest" or "Seattle Northwesterners" But I'm nitpicking. These are awesome!

    ldconcepts' NHL Redesign 3.0 (Bracket Updated)

    I really love the yoke idea you employed with the 'Canes, but you should really consider pairing it with the Tampa Bay Lightning. It's the perfect way to evoke a lightning bolt without being to garish. Ottawa's look is excellent. Black, Red and Vintage White is the ideal Sens colour scheme; it separates them from the other Black and Red teams (NJ, CGY, CAR, CHI).

    The Battle of Seattle

    Sparky, every update post is an embarrassment of riches. You give us so much awesome content! Not to over-contribute to the conversation, but on second glance at the uni choices, I'm really loving the (Sawbuck?) design with the plaid multi-tone green with yellow trim. Leftmost design on the bottom row.

    The Battle of Seattle

    I'd say the best pure logo is the Totems-"S" Best uniform colours are the ones with a green primary. I would really think the OVG will go with green, and why not the Sonics old Green and Gold? Points for the Sawbucks (even though there's no way they risk messing with Starbucks on a similar name). Though the Sockeyes have a great logo, I just don't see that de-saturated ochre being either a great merchandise seller or a good look on TV. Maybe try the teal as a primary uni colour - though admittedly, you have the Sharks to the south - the ochre is a dynamite secondary/tertiary (see your Kraken concepts). Best overall unis are the Kraken, love the layout and striping.Also love the Dark green/lime contrast.Works for the Totems too. Whichever concept wins the BoS, I think you've created a great baseline for what OVG should be shooting for: Green, flora/fauna-themed, and contemporary.

    8BW14's NFL Concept Thread: Ravens updated (10/7)

    I do love your LA Chargers logo, and the colours. The wordmark should be altered somewhat; the existing one is cool, but no longer matches the new identity established by the logo. Maybe incorporate the powder-blue/sunshine-yellow bolt into the font, and add the graphite outline.

    The Battle of Seattle

    Sparky, much love, but the EC concept is only going to work as a secondary. That being said, the new EC is much better than the old EC/FC design. I'm digging the frog - it is certainly unique - but not with the background gemstone. I use the general term gemstone, because your logo features the diamond cut, and not the appropriate emerald cut. Your 2nd EC logo is more in line with emerald cuts. There's something to be said to the notion of transplanting the frog identity to another team name concept. Maybe your Evergreens concept: -the base Evergreens concept is a little bland (still good though) and could use an extra element. -It really accentuates the green ID. -it is after all a Tree Frog.

    The Battle of Seattle

    Wow, this totally works for me. I agree that the grey-green should be darkened a few shades for contrast sake. Think of maybe a slate/limestone kind of shade. But otherwise, this IS the SSL! sparky, how are you not contracted by the NHL in a Brandiose-like fashion? I have no doubts that you could do a complete overhaul of the leagues 31 other teams and improve 28/29 of them. Just don't put the Flames back in the 80's please.

    The Battle of Seattle

    I'm not sold on the Totems name - even with the history of it - because it seems to stoic, too stationary. That being stated, I love both logos, the double green, and the square motif on the unis. Have you considered changing the bird's feet on the totem and turning them into two hockey sticks? That's what they look like from afar.
  12. Wow. Nice Idea. Though I think the Re-Brandriosing of MLB would replace the old name entirely with a whole new two-word flourish. Examples (and feel free to use, if you like): Toronto Double-Doubles Seattle Voodoo Chiles Washington Foggy Bottoms Cincinnati Five-Ways Boston Green Monstahs or Whoopie Pies Oakland Hella Cats

    NFL 2 - Team Finals - BOISE

    Thunderbirds are go! Love it so far. Will you continue the 4-stripe motif on the unis?

    The Flying V: Classic or Modern?

    I like both options, but I fear there is not enough contrast between the navy and midnight blue. I think it would be great with royal blue substituting in for the navy. Or maybe go to a cerulean blue (more towards green). Either concept is an improvement from the current unis. Just removing the Vancouver script is an improvement!

    Sabertooth Cat/Predators Logo

    This logo is excellent for Nashville, better that any current or previous logo. To improve, I would move the ST tiger head up a smidge to make room for the three-star design thats on the Tennessee state flag. The two stars make no sense, and the NP is nice, but not required.
