  1. Hello. I am an animator and video editor and I have been working on and off on a logo redesign project for the better part of a year now (with long stretches of inactivity) as a way to get better at illustrator and I thought I would make an account here for some critique. I started really getting in to logo design when I came across a black and white and horribly pixelated design for a Fleur De Lis that I thought could be made into a St. Louis Blues logo, and after contacting the owner of the shop and asking about it and if I could mess with it, I did. I didn't really think it worked well as a main logo, but I did think it worked as a shoulder patch. I did it in a couple other colors as well and took the wordmark from the actual St. Louis Blues sheet music after an idea from the kind folks on the Blues subreddit. Over a year later I thought I decided I needed to get better at illustrator so I started designing alternate/shoulder logos for the rest of the league. I'm "done" with about 1/4 of the league at this point. Please let me know what you think and I would love to hear suggestions on what I need to improve on, but keep in mind I dont really know what I am doing. Also, if there is a better way to format this let me know. St. Louis Original: Wordmark: Colors: Revision: I did Minnesota next, where I thought a roundel logo would look cool. I did two variants of the same logo and one that was a riff on their main logo. 1: 2: 3: Colorado This one I actually think could stand up as a main logo. I got rid of their ugly "Millennium swoops' Winnipeg Classic colors: Modern Colors: Toronto: based on the city of Toronto's flag Ottowa: I wanted to play off their older logo that everyone loves so much without just making it an exact copy Revision: Buffalo: I took the crossed swords from their red logo days and put them behind the skull I drew. Penguins: I replaced the iconic triangle with a Pennsylvania keystone. Hopefully that doesn't make me a heretic. Revision: I put the penguin in a complete keystone and I like it, but I still think the half keystone looks better. Lightning: Honestly something's missing from this one, but everything I add makes it look worse so I decided to ask you all what you think. the L works pretty good but it seems empty. Again, these aren't really meant to replace the logo front of the jersey, most are meant to be shoulder patches, but this one feels empty. Wordmark: I thought trying to make it a wordmark would work a little bit better, and it does in some aspects, but it feels really empty still. Canadiens: I took the Fleur from the Montreal flag and tried to turn it in to an "M"which I think works pretty well, but I do think it needs some more polishing. I don't really like this better than their current logo but I think something like it could work as a shoulder patch 1: 2: Stars: I took their old star logo and updated the colors and added a recolored Texas flag. Then I removed the wordmark and had the star go through the middle of a D in the same style as the other letters 1: 2: After a bit of a hiatus, I am back. I took the Spirit of Detroit and added wings to it. I am not sure if I want to add something in his hands but I am pretty proud of this logo I have had this Preds logo in my back pocket for a little while now, its super simple and is kind of a combination of their shoulder patch and chest logo. I plan on doing another one for the Preds as well but I thought I'd post this one just to get an idea of what you guys think

Here is the link if you want to buy one! Get this Blues Rally Shirt HERE! Thank you everyone, all feedback is welcome! LET'S GO BLUES!!!!!!!!
  3. I took a short break from my NHL Pastel Series to redo the Winter Classic jerseys. The changes I made were mostly minor, but I think they really improve the jerseys. St. Louis Blues The Blues really nailed their Winter Classic uniforms this year. When I started out I wanted to incorporate the St. Louis flag into the jersey. Sadly, any way I tried to do so looked awful, so I left the jersey striping as-is, just filled in the cuffs and waist. Chicago Blackhawks The Blackhawks have really untouchable jerseys, so these don't have a major impact either. The "improvements" I made on this one were to add in some sky blue from the Chicago flag, and add the red stars from the flag on the arms. So, I know those were some really minor changes, but what do you think?
  4. Blues 50th Anniversary Mini-Series

    I'd meant to start this series last week...some douchebag dumping yard waste behind the garage can be "thanked" for the delay. In any event, the wait is over, and the Blues come marching in. Once again, the Sharks step in to take the Seals' place. Blues' striping style is that of their original white jerseys (but throwing navy in the mix), while the Sharks' striping is from the Seals' second white jersey, complete with shoulder numbers. 70s Night's opponent will be the Blackhawks, WitH A twist you might like.
  5. Sorry for flooding the boards with concepts recently, but I've just been on a roll. Here's a redesign for the St. Louis Blues, which utilizes their 90's wordmark in a unique and semi-modern fashion. The 5 stripes create 6 spaces, which is for the staff used in every musical piece ever. Rip it apart!
  6. Idea I thought about the other day. Mixing some old designs with the present designs and adding the "Long Live The Note" in the color, Creating a Blues version of the STL inspired from the Cards. Made a lighter shade of blue for the Bues plus dropping the yellow to match the name. Just toying around with ideas for the HJC. C&C welcome negative or positive help me make better designs
  7. Hey everybody! I was trying to make a roundel logo for the St. Louis Blues without using their "wing note" logo. I kept the Gateway arch and added gold/yellow to it, I made 5 lines (representing sheet music and water) at the bottom to show that St. Louis is on the Mississippi River, and the words St. Louis Blues to it. I also included the color red to represent Missouri's flag (and because the Blues once used red). But the problem is that it needs something else. I'd like some advice on what to add or take out. A bit of advice on how to make the arch look more 3d would be great as well.
  8. I noticed the new logo that the Saint Louis Blues the now parent club of my beloved Chicago Wolves is getting for next year. Also, the circular logo for the St. Patrick's day jerseys and new alternate jersey the Wolves gave me an idea to create a new circular for a St. Louis inspired look. Only for a brief time did the Wolves have a patch to show their affiliation with a NHL team and that was with the Thrashers on the alternate black jerseys they had years ago. So why not make a jersey and logo or emblem that pays homage to the NHL parent club but is truly Chicago. I do have plans on sending this to the Wolves all the designs. First the the circular logo designs: I used just the Wolves head (but not the stick and puck) which I traced in Inkscape. The Chicago skyline i drew It has numerous things that are part of Chicago. I couldn't think of one for it like the Arch on St. Louis other than "the Bean", so I have the Sears Tower, John Hancock, Navy Pier, the Chicago Water Tower, the Thompson Center, the Harold Washington library, 900 N. Michigan building by the Hancock and a building that is just South of the Sears Tower. Numbers 4, 9 and 10 use font styles the Wolves have used with 9 and 10 using the actual wordmark. Numbers 1,2,3,6,7,8 and 10 all use numbers the Wolves have used in the for jerseys.I did make a St. Patrick's day one the numbers on there I am pretty sure were used by the team for a St. patty's day jersey. about 10 years ago. Critiques greatly welcomed always. I do want to send this to the team soon. Maybe not for next season but maybe the near future. Thank you for your time.
