  1. This is my first time trying my hand at graphic design, and I wanted to see what others thought. I'm not an artist, and I don't have an incredibly deep understanding of graphic design- I assume what I drew has bad vectoring, but I couldn't tell you the first thing about what vectors are, or what adding the suffix 'ing' to the word vector actually means. So if this is offensively amateur, feel free to let me know and I'll scrub this post! Just wondering if this is anything.
  2. Seattle NHL Brand Discussion

    This isn't necessarily for next season, but here are renderings for a renovated Key Arena, one from each group vying to be the ones to make the changes. This would most likely give Seattle (according to their estimates) a team by 2020. .
  3. Seattle Mariners recolor concept

    Hey all This is my first post and this is a little something I did in Microsoft paint. I recolored the Mariners logo and replaced the teal with more of a bright green. The 2 logos in the top right are the cap logos, couldn't decide which would fit better. Feedback would be much appreciated!
  4. Now that Las Vegas has an NHL team, it is hard to see the NHL adding an expansion team to the Western Conference. Therefore, it seems pretty unlikely that Seattle will get an NHL team in the future. However, that doesn't stop me from taking a shot at it. Seattle has a really old hockey history and identity which would be fun to build on. I made this concept to see what a team in Seattle would look like. First, for the team name. I chose to name the team the Seattle Suncatchers. The name is in reference to the Pacific Northwestern Native American myth of the Raven stealing the sun. I took the colors from the Seattle Metropolitans, the first American team to win the Stanley Cup. I took a lot of influence from the Art Deco architechture and art associated with Seattle. I wanted to make a team that mixed a lot of the complex Native American art with a more stripped down, Art Deco style. Next, for logos. I wanted all of the logos to mix the two elements to create a strong identity that was different than a lot of the other NHL teams. An image seen in a lot of Pacific Northwestern Native American art is the image of the Raven with the sun in its beak. This was originally my idea for the main logo of the team. This is what I came up with. I liked the stylizing of the logo, but parts of the logo bothered me. I thought it looked too much like a dinosaur for some reason, and at the same time it looked too similar to the Seahawks' logo. In addition, It didn't look very good on the uniforms, so I decided to scrap it. However, I still wanted to keep the mix of simplicity and the Native American elements. These are the marks I settled on for the Suncatchers. The primary logo is centerd around the red roundel, which represents the sun from the Native American myth. Surrounding it in art deco script is "Suncatchers Seattle". Inside the sun are three Northwestern Native American styled feathers, joined together by a smaller roundel. The secondary mark is drawn from the Seattle Metropolitans' "S" logo. The S and the smaller letters spelling out Seattle are in the updated script and are aligned to fit inside of the S better. Both of the logos mix history, Art deco, and Native American elements. For the jerseys, I wanted to do something classic. Looking at what Adidas has done for the World Cup of Hockey uniforms, they seem to like to walk the line between modern and minimalist. I tried to walk the same line while still being old school. Here are the jerseys. The home jerseys are a dark green with predominantly cream highlights. Red accents highlight the cream portions of the uniform, on the yoke, sleeves, pants, and socks. The away jerseys follow a different design, with a cream base and green upper sleeves. The same red accents are found on the sleeves. For both of the uniforms, Art Deco numbers are used, with the nameplates and captain patches in an old school collegiate font. The Seattle S logo serves as both jersey's patches and are found on both pants. The same helmet is used with both uniforms. Any C&C is much appreciated! Tell me what you think of the concept down below.
  5. HJC ( has started a contest in which participants design a new logo, uniforms, and a "Wild Card" item for an NHL expansion team called the Americans, based off of the old Brooklyn Americans hockey club. I put my club in Seattle, made a logo and jerseys, as well as a rally/playoff towel. All designs are below. There ya go! What do you think? Here's the contest link, by the way.
  6. Seattle Mariners Rebrand

    I posted this on my Behance, but I felt like I should post it here too! One of my least favorite brands in the MLB is the Seattle Mariners. I feel like their current brand is too cluttered with outlines, and doesn't represent a bold identity. This concept stems from an idea I've had for a while, adopt the color scheme the other pro teams in Seattle use. I was going for a bold refresh of a past identity, similar to the Houston Astros.
  7. Fixing the sounders

    Never been a fan of the Seattle Sounders badge - been mulling over ideas for the last few months, finally tried it out, fairly happy with the outcome but C/C always welcome. some of the wordmark looks a little clunky, but it's a draft so maybe just ignore that for now, I'm aware. Thanks guys!

  9. Seattle Supersonics Concept

    Hello! This is my personal redesign of the Seattle Supersonics. As always feel free to critique and I will answer questions when I can. As a note, for all intents and purposes, the work posted here is complete. The rest of the branding and other things will be on my Behance portfolio sometime soon. Enjoy!
  10. Seattle Supersonics Return

    This is my attempt at a new set of logos and Jerseys for the Seattle supersonics, let me know what you think
  11. NHL Expansion Logos

    Hey Guys! I'm pretty new to this forum as to designing logos for clubs. Also I'm not really good with the programs but I hope you could give me some criticism about my project: I started designing logos for eventual future hockey franchises (as others did as well). I'm a fan of easy and clear structures so here are my two first designs: The city of Seattle also named the Emerald city deserves a hockey team in my opinion so I took the emerald and the city's colour. If the team is called Metropolitans or not in their history is still changeable, but I wanted to do something different than another designer did here (Totems). If there's a team given to Quebec every name but Nordiques wouldn't be accepted as I think, so here is my suggestion: the rose of the compass and the fleur de lis! Thank you for every comment on my work!
  12. Seattle Totems NHL Expansion Concepts This was my second go around at creating a Seattle Expansion team concept. My first attempt was very much based off of Seahawks colours and patterns but I changed it to be more based off of the former Seattle Totems hockey team.
  13. Hello everyone, I have a big project for you that i've been working one for a while. I made concepts for 6 new possible NHL teams. 1. Québec Nordiques 2. Portlans Mountaineers 3. Hamilton Beasts 4. Seattle Sasquatch 5. Halifax Schooners 6. Las Vegas Silver Bullets (hopefully there isn't any controversy with gun control and all that stuff) I am Willing to do 2 more teams with your suggestions! This is all for fun, just to see what the brands would look like. Here is a teaser of every team, and I'll post them one by one. Which team are you most excited for? I'll post the one with the most buzz first!
  14. Seattle Mariners Concept

    With the popularity of Seattle's Sunday alternate jerseys, I decided to revert the M's back to their old colors and add a matching away alternate.
  15. Seattle Sockeyes NHL Concept

    I've had this image in my head of a Sockeye Salmon swimming through an S for awhile now. Thought I'd get it hammerd out to make it a realization. Needs some help though so give some C&C please.
  16. Seahawks Concept

    For some reason Imgur isn't working right now so I'm going to link this on Photo Bucket. It's a mix of the mid 2000s greyish blue with the current navy, neon, and grey. It's a block number font. This is my first ever time making on a concept on Photoshop so I do apologize for the bad quality. Any tips are helpful whether for the concept or my photoshop skills (for example I don't know why it's so blurry and bad quality). UPDATE: UPDATE 2: Away Concept
  17. NHL Concept - Seattle Stealth

    I came up with this idea for a Seattle based NHL team named the Stealth. The name ties into their history of aviation (like the Seattle Pilots and Supersonics) and also incorporates some green since Seattle is nicknamed the Emerald City. I also found out after I had finished this concept that there was a Washington Stealth Lacrosse team, but the colors are way different and it doesn't have any similarities style wise. The logo is an F117 stealth fighter. I took a photo of one and outlined the angles and lines in green, making the outline and the cockpit window thicker than the rest. I chose this color green since it reminds me of the green of nightvision goggles and it goes well with the Stealth name. I kept the stripes on the jersey thin, basically making them outlines of stripes so that they are visible but not too much, playing into the stealth name.
  18. Greetings everyone, This is my first post, so I apologize if I don't have all the bases covered. This is a concept for an NHL expansion/relocation to Seattle. I chose the name Lumberjacks for two reasons: 1) to pay tribute to the region's first major industry (logging) and 2) I wanted to stay away from the Metropolitans/Metros name, as I've already seen some great concepts for that nickname and wanted to try something different. I would love to add an alternate jersey to the mix at some point. Let me know what you think! Special Thanks: jersey template from Hockey Jersey Concepts: Inspiration for presentation of concept: the_dragon ( Artwork created using Adobe Illustrator Presentation image created using Adobe Photoshop
  19. Hi everybody, Here's a concept I originally made for uni that I've tweaked minorly since then in terms of presentation. Basically the story is branding an expansion team in Seattle, using the idea of a new history for the franchise and mixing the Supersonics history with a new look. It's the first real concept Ive fully gone through with in terms of sport branding and I want to keep practicing. Theres a couple of things like season ticket packaging I didnt include because I didnt know how to present it as well. Anyway comments of any nature are appreciated. Cheers.
  20. Wayne Gretzky has joined a group of investors hoping to bring a National Hockey League team to Seattle, The Post has learned. The Gretzky group is one of three looking to bring an NHL franchise to the home of Starbucks, sources said — but each faces an uphill battle in that league Commissioner Gary Bettman has not said the league is ready to expand. Things could get interesting...
  21. Seattle Hockey logo

    Hey Guys! I know everyone is doing Seattle concepts and this our Take on it. We were thinking of the Metropolitans for the team name. We will add other fun seattle concepts on here later. Hope you like it! C&C Welcome!
  22. Seattle Mariners tweak-cept (UPDATED on page 2)

    (I updated this concept on page 2, check it out there) Here is my Seattle Mariners concept, even though it's not really an original concept, more like a tweaking with some original elements created by me. First up is the primary logo and the alternate logo: The new compass star actually has significance......the light is shining on the compass from the North, West and Northwest, making this set much more regionally appealing. The alternate logo actually is a combination of two classic logos and one very well known landmark; the trident "M", the "M's" logo from 1987-92, and the Seattle Space Needle. Encircled around "the M's" logo is "Seattle Baseball Club". BTW, it's read as "Seattle Baseball Club", NOT "Seattle the M's Baseball Club". This logo will be worn on all four uniform jerseys. Cap Logo: For the teal hat, just swap the Teal outline and Navy Background to a Teal outline and Teal Background. Script: Numerals: Uniforms: I will say, if you liked the 90's Brewers sets, you'll probably love this concept. Hope you like this!
  23. Seattle Seahawks Full Body Logo

    I really liked the old full body logo that the Seahawks used to use, but it was a little too detailed for them to use much. so heres an simplified update of the logo that I made that uses the new color scheme.
  24. So I'm working on a Seattle Metropolitans Update. I have an Idea of what I want for the Primary logo ( Below), and I plan to add a secondary and a word mark as well as jerseys! Hope you guys enjoy and Look forward to hearing your thoughts and Opinions. I'm torn between two color schemes as well as which logo to go with, let me know what direction to go and how to improve the logo! Maybe even what you would like to see in the secondary!
  25. A couple years ago in the "Unpopular Opinions" thread, I mentioned that this is my favorite Sonics logo: I don't know what it is about it that I love so much. I like the fact that it actually represents the team's namesake (Supersonic jets developed by Boeing), the 60's simplicity of the design, and its sweeping motion of the jetstream. Of course, it has its problems, like the lack of yellow, the non-matching lettering font, and the over-simplicity of the jet and Space Needle (itself a landmark of the "Zeerust" aesthetic). So, I have updated it. I've shortened the jet stream to give the logo a more manageable size, switched the font to better reflect the two-color system, replaced all of the white with yellow, modified the Seattle Sounders' Space Needle graphic to provide better perspective to the building and give it more overall weight in the composition, and switched the dark green to kelly green (the color scheme used during the Sonics' most successful period of the late 70's through the 90's). The jet is based on the conceptual Boeing 2707. Here it is, in comparison to an SRGB-enhanced version of the original logo. It's only meant as a proof-of-concept, as it has yet to be properly polished. Also, I have updated the classic skyline logo to fit in with the new primary and reflect some of the buildings built after the original's debut: C+C is appreciated.
