  1. Charlotte Checkers Concepts

    HJC just finished up their contest called The Season, where you anonymously create a concept that goes into a round-robin where readers vote on which jersey they like more. I picked a random team, which ended up being the Charlotte Checkers. My goal for these concepts was to create a similar but not identical look to the parent club Hurricanes, and to incorporate a checkerboard pattern, since it's right there in the name. The first set on the top was my round-robin set. I used a off-colour shoulder with checkers as stripes. This ended up finishing second in the group, earning a playoff spot. The bottom set was for the playoffs. I went with a black home just to change things up, and created a new pattern, featuring two seperate checker patterns. It unfortunately couldn't get to the final, but I was still happy with the design. So what do you guys think? C&C is appreciated!
  2. Hershey Bears Project

    Hey, folks. Stumbling back to the boards for a short while as I work on another small project. I don't want to call this a rebrand but that's basically what I'm doing here. I love the Hershey Bears color scheme and even their logo set, but I feel like their jerseys are always subpar. That is besides their throwbacks and fauxback jerseys. This project will be taking their brand and making it a full classic vintage look, which I feel would suit the Bears best. For right now, I only have two teaser images up. These are basically the logos I will be working with for the concept. Still some tweaking to do, but I'm going full on 50's candy bar vintage style with this project. From the logos, jerseys, and posters, tickets, really anything. Should be a short and fun concept to work on. I hope those that follow along enjoy it as well! Obviously, would love to hear thoughts along the way, but just keep in mind, I'm not straying far away from the idea at hand which is: complete vintage Hershey Bears. So, without further adieu here are the first two teasers.
  3. Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins

    I was just looking at the updated logo for the AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins, and was disappointed to see that the Golden Triangle (symbolic of Pittsburgh) had been added to the existing, different penguin used by WB/S. That got me thinking about a more appropriate background, and after learning that Scranton is the Electric City and Wilkes-Barre the Diamond City, I came up with this rough concept. I don't plan to do anything more with this, but I wanted to share the idea.
  4. Ontario Reign Rebrand

    Based on the Eislöwen concept I recently did - here's a concept for the Ontario Reign of the AHL:
  5. Binghamton Devils New Look

    Binghamton Devils unveiled their new look the morning ....
  6., here's a new logo that isn't complete naff.
  7. The Reno Regals

    This is my concept of a Vegas Golden Knights farm team in Reno, Nevada. View the full project here
  8. Here's my latest rebrand of an American Hockey League team, the Chicago Wolves. They're still using their first logo from 1994/95 and it's not a beauty. It's mainly black and silver-gray, so to me it's missing color, the uniform colors. It's definitely iconic for die-hard Wolves fans which I understand, but I decided to give this team a new, simple and modern look. So: gone is the wolf head with the oversized puck and the hockey stick. The new wolf is a howling one. Simply because I love wolves and to me the sound they make is the sound of nature, freedom and pure wilderness! The team colors are mostly untouched. Pantone Silver 877 C was replaced with Cool Gray 10 C and Pantone Burgundy is a notch lighter than in their current mark.
  9. AHL "NHL Night" uniforms (29/30)

    Most AHL teams have adopted their parent clubs' identities and many are pretty close to it. I wanted to try and embrace that by creating the "NHL Night" promotion for AHL teams, where they look back into their parent clubs' uniform histories and make a past look their own. When creating this, I figured this promotion could be like a Sunday promotion, or since division teams play each other 8-11 times, they could use one of those matchups as an "NHL Night." Some AHL teams get crazy with alternates, so what's one more to the mix? Starting with the Atlantic Division, here are the Bridgeport Sound Tigers modeled after the 1978-1995 New York Islanders. We all know how much they like reminding us about the four cups they won in the 80s, so why not make their AHL club wear the unis they did it in. *Logos from, template from the concept resources on the boards, and for jersey references.
  10. I got curious about the Thunderbirds' jerseys, and I was underwhelmed. They're not awful, but they seem like an unnecessarily templated mess that tries too hard to be modern. Here's my fix. Home Away Alternate The home and away are classic, but modern, designs that I make quite often. The alternate is based on the Panthers' new home jersey, since the T-Birds are the Panthers' minor league affiliate, and that's that. Pretty simple. What do you think?
  11. San Jose Barracuda Concept

    I get that they San Jose Barracuda are sponsered by Barracuda and they worked their logo around the company logo, but was it worth it? The logo looks like a pile of fish parts. So using some style cues from the Sharks logos I put this together. Let me know what you think.
  12. Manitoba Moose Concept

    So for this one, I wanted to use the old moose template with the new colours. I also added the full logo to the front as it always bothered me that the moose never used it on the jersey. What do you guys think?
  13. The Springfield Thunderbirds unveiled their uniforms yesterday for their inaugural season in the AHL.
  14. On Aug 8th, the AHL's Hartford Wolf Pack unveiled new uniforms for the 2016-17 season. All three jerseys (Home/White + Road/Blue + Alternate/Red) are based on their parent club's (NY Rangers) Stadium Series jersey design from the other year.
  15. AHL Custom Goal Horns (18/30 - Rockford)

    Goal Horns aren't usually seen on the boards, and I wanted to try something new. I am making Custom Goal Horns for the 30 AHL teams. Here is the Albany Devils Custom Goal Horn. I used the horn they use now and combined it with Nelly's Here Comes the Boom. Up next: Bakersfield.
  16. The NHL's 2017-18 Las Vegas expansion team will obviously need an AHL expansion team as an affiliate, so I'm curious to see some ideas get thrown around in this thread. Location Nickname Logo Uniforms ***Lets exclude any existing teams from the lower minors, as a possible promotion to AHL***
  17. With the unveiling of the Tuscon Roadrunners identity last month (if you can call that poorly executed abomination an "identity"), I've come to the conclusion that the AHL's Pacific Division (as it will likely exist next season) is by far the worst looking division in professional sports. Take a look at the designs below and find a single logo that isn't without some major flaw. I realize its minor league hockey, and that minor league sports are not held to the same standards as top-tier leagues...but I'd like to challenge anyone to find an uglier sampling of logos in any other professional sport (I know there are some truly god awful amateur leagues out there so I'm not going to open up that can of worms). Show us your worst.
  18. Scranton Storm Hockey Team

    Hey Guys! Today I have a logo design for a hockey team named Scranton Storm. Just a cool logo I wanted to see come to life. Now, if you notice, the lightning bolt looks like an "S," for Scranton. The shield behind the bolt is just to make the logo feel more complete. I have a Home and Away jersey to see how that would look. I hope you guys like this one! Logo: Jersey: C&C Welcome!
  19. The Montreal Canadiens announced today that they're relocating their AHL affiliate, the St. John's IceCaps, to Laval, Quebec after next season (2017/18), and have launched a name the team campaign. So what should the name of the team in Laval, Quebec be? Laval Voyageurs would be my choice.
  20. Hey guys, I decided to try my hand at some concepts for the new Springfield Thunderbirds franchise. Third Jerseys coming soon! So here it is... C&C Appreciated

  22. McElroy's Tucson Fix (Updated 6/24)

    Howdy Guy's so after reading the comments on the Road Runners new logo and needing a break from the problems of my own logo I decided to put together a way, in my eyes, the could fix the new logo. Let me know what you guys think! And also a jersey obviously based off of the current and Kachina Coyotes jerseys Let me know what you guys think!
  23. Springfield Thunderbirds; A Concept

    Hey all! Taking a brief break from my defunct series to give you a fresh AHL redesign. The Springfield Thunderbirds unveiled their new logo recently, designed by @McElroy19, a guy I've gotten advice from numerous times in the last couple years. If the team extended their gig to uniforms, I'm sure they'll be good. That isn't going to stop me from trying though :). Some features... Colours - I really like the colour scheme, except for one thing. I thought the red was a bit unnecessary, but I don't mind it. For the sake of differentiating from the rest of the league, I went with a double blue and yellow slick. Sky blue is the primary colour, to seperate them again from regular blue teams. Striping - I tried to emulate the three bars in the back of the logo (as you can see) and create some flow throughout the set. I also added a unique flair by matching up the stripes so that sky blue would never mix with navy and white. Sounds confusing, I know, but you'll see what I mean below. The sky blue placements on the road uniform simply balance the colours. Name and Numbers - I went with yellow numbers and a bold outline to stand out in an arena and a navy blue namebar to resemble the logos typeface style. Compare them to see what I'm referring to. Flag Patch - This is an obvious nod to their parent club and the flag of Massachusetts. As with a little reference to their colours. Panthers Logo Placement - This is to fit with a military theme and to make them unique among the AHL. Let me know what you think!
  24. Hershey Bears Alternate Jersey

    After not being on the boards for a while, I decided to make a Hershey Bears Alternate Jersey, it came up with my friend, and we talked for a while about it, coming up with this: c/c very much appreciated.
  25. AHL Tucson redesign

    Okay so I guess everyone has seen the new AHL team - the Tucson Roadrunners - and has an opinion on it. Personally I am not a fan. I was hoping for a fresh new look. The logo looks so 70s style and thats okay if a team has been around since then but this is a new team that needs a new look. The name is alright I guess but I am going a different way here. My name choice: Tucson Prairie Wolves. Goes well with the big brother, the Coyote and fits the location. So here is what I would have liked them to look. I'll get started with the main logo:
