  1. NHL March Madness - Atlantic Division

    Breakdown of how this thread will work: Each division will be revealed one at a time. Teams will be seeded (and uniforms revealed) as they stand in the division as of 3/12/18. 2 teams will be revealed each day as we lead up to the beginning of the NHL playoffs. Once every team's uniform within a division is unveiled, a Top-3 vote will commence among the viewers of this thread. Voting will be open for 48-hours. A #1 overall vote will be worth 3 points, #2 vote worth 2 points, and #3 vote worth 1 point Once votes are casted for each division and are determined final, the team with the most awarded points will advance to the Final Four. In the event of a tie, tiebreaker will be the amount of #1 votes received. After the four division winners are determined, a new set of alternate uniforms, along with a "Final Four" logo patch, will be unveiled Teams will be re-seeded according to how many points they received in the preliminary round Voting will then commence to determine which teams advance to the March Madness Final, and the two winning teams will be put up for a vote to determine the champion. For reference, here are the standings from 3/12/18 so you are aware of the original seeding: We will begin with unveiling the Central Division! #1 Seed: Nashville Predators #2 Seed: Winnipeg Jets As always, C&C is appreciated (all teams are completed fwiw). Let the madness begin!
  2. Tampa Bay Lightning Tweak

    I've been messing around in NHL18 working on a custom league to post on the boards and as a break I decided to fix my favorite team (and hopefully future Stanley Cup Champion), the Tampa Bay Lightning. I like blue being the primary color but I'm sick to high heaven of the scrimmage jokes when they play Toronto. So black returns in a fairly prominent way

This is a big one. I've had the bits and pieces of this one working for two and half years and I finally feel ready enough to get this one out to the public. This project began when I wondered one day what would happen if Nike did something ludicrous and somehow managed to get apparel rights to every single FBS level team. Of course this is seemingly impossible in the real world, but it was fun to think about. Then I took it one step further. Not only would get every FBS football team, but if every FBS football team also had a Division 1 basketball, baseball and hockey team for Nike to get their hands on. So the goal here is one, to actually finish this idea, but more than that, is to see if I can create a unique identity for 130 some teams across 4 different sports. This means that some traditional looks will be changed slightly and some might change drastically. Nevertheless, I'm excited to get this off the ground and share it with you guys. Teams will be posted as I get them done and will be done in a random order I have created with some help from the internet and first up is the Ohio Bobcats of the MAC: (I also will create one of these cool team headers for every team). Ohio's sports have a rather laid back and simplistic look to them. Even with adidas/Russell at the helm of their apparel, they don't have too crazy of a look and I kept that in mind as I designed their uniforms for this. Keeping that in mind, I left their football uniforms pretty much the same as they have been the last couple years. Biggest change here is the addition of real pants stripes as opposed to no stripes or very short stripes. I limited black to an alternate set that would hopefully be worn separately, but in the current state of college football we all know that wouldn't happen. The hockey uniforms are very similar to how the football uniforms go. I did consider shoulder logos for them but I didn't keep them, as it just didn't feel right to me. Baseball uniforms again are very simple and consistent with the rest of the uniforms. Biggest thing here and across the board is that there is no longer a "grey away" designation. Unless a team has grey in their set, I won't be giving a team a grey uniform for baseball. Basketball is consistent with the rest. I didn't want to go full Celtics with Ohio, so the double stripe pattern is on the shoulders and the collar trim is a solid color. On the shorts the waistband is striped and the hem is a solid color. C&C is welcome as always. Given the larger nature of this thread, I'll try and get the next team up as soon as I can.
  4. Felt like making some hockey jerseys, and have had this idea in my head for some time, so I present to you Provincial/Territorial Hockey Jerseys, where I will be giving each of Canada's provinces and territories.. you guessed it, hockey jerseys! British Columbia Alberta Saskatchewan Manitoba Northern Ontario Ontario Quebec New Brunswick Nova Scotia Prince Edward Island Newfoundland and Labrador Yukon Northwest Territories Nunavut St. Pierre and Miquelon Since I'm still not 100% confident in my logo-making abilities, The logo for each team is their respective shield. Like series before, I'm not doing these in any particular order, so if you want a certain one done, I'll do it. Let's get to it! First up we have Saskatchewan. Firstly, anything other than green for the home jersey would be blasphemous so I obviously went with that. The rest of the colours are from the provincial flag, mainly using yellow and having minimal red accents. The striping pattern features two traditional stripes, with cuffs on the arms. This pattern is also featured on the socks and hem. The away jersey features a yoke, and the star of the show is a sublimated wheat pattern on the chest, paying homage to the many farmers and wheat fields in the province. I used a classic block font, the same one used by the Roughriders, the pride of the province. Left Wings: Jaden Schwartz, Patrick Marleau (C), Chris Kunitz (A), Scott Hartnell (A) Centres: Ryan Getzlaf (A), Brayden Schenn, Tyler Bozak, Brooks Laich Right Wings: Jordan Eberle, Blake Comeau, Josh Archibald, Adam Cracknell Defensemen: Ryan Murray, Matt Dumba, Derrick Pouliot, Luke Schenn, Brayden McNabb, Erik Gryba Goalies: Devan Dubnyk, Braden Holtby C&C is appreciated, as well as requests!
  5. Springfield College Hockey

    Hey everyone, this is my first time logging in to the forums since 2015. Not sure why, but I just kinda faded away for a while. BUT NOW I'M BACK. Back then, I was just a commenter and had no artistic skill or knowledge on how to create logos and uniforms, but since then I have worked on my skills in Photoshop. Currently, I am a sophomore at Springfield College and working as the Director of Hockey Operations for our mens ACHA club hockey team. (Just a fancy name for a team manager) I have been working on game day graphics and running different accounts and such. It is a lot of fun, but there is one thing we are lacking. That is a great logo. The school has gone dull and last year came out with a new logo which is a basic block 'S' similar to Syracuse and Michigan State. It is so dull and boring compared to other schools we play. So, I took it upon myself to create a new logo for our club hockey team. As of now, I am trying to get it approved so we can use it in future apparel and other stuff like that. I know it's really basic but it's my first real concept that I made on my own. Currently I haven't shown anyone other than some of the players and coaches, so still unsure if it can or will get approved by the school. Let me know what you guys think of it and if I should change anything around. Thanks!
  6. Colorado Avalanche Logo Concept

    I've always struggled with trying to make a logo for this team that I don't end up not hating. I like this one better than my previous attempts, y'all will have to let me know what you think.
  7. First time posting anything on this website but have been an on-looker for quite some time. I've always wanted to make a fictional sports league and settled on a hockey league. I came up with team names and had a general idea of how I wanted the league to progress. For the longest times I never knew how to make logos and uniforms and didn't even know if people did this kind of thing, and I eventually ran across this website. After a few years of on-looking I decided to try to create my own league again, and with learning how to do logos and uniforms from this website, I was finally able to create the first season of the WHL. Thought I would post the first season and background information and see how well received it is before I post more. I already have a general idea of a few future teams to be introduced. Would appreciate any criticism and critique. This is in no way to rival any other fictional hockey league already on this website! Thank you in advance for any comments, if there is any comments this may suck like an open chest wound. Let's hope not. Pre-1948 In 1918, Sir Harold L. Douglas (a prominent banker in Quebec City) had a burning desire to get into the ever-popular sports scene. The most followed sport in Quebec, and all of Canada for that matter, was ice hockey. Douglas was an avid fan of the sport and even played center for the Quebec City Aces for two seasons. Sir Douglas convinced the four largest leagues in North America, the Quebec Professional Hockey Association, the North East Hockey League, the Hockey League of Central Canada, and the Great Lakes Hockey Association, to send their league champion to the Quebec City Arena to play one another for a new, magnificent trophy. The trophy was dubbed the Sir Douglas Cup in honor of the man who not only paid for the trophy, but also was the mastermind behind the tournament. The tournament became an instant fan favorite with the QCA being packed with fans from each league. Though the NEHL and GLHA would send terrific teams to the tournament, it was usually a battle between whatever teams the QPHA and HLCC sent. In fact it took ten years for a team from the GLHA to get to the final round and fifteen years for the NEHL. The tournament would become more rounded with the two American leagues sending higher quality teams than ever before, but neither league would produce a tournament champion. The HLCC’s Winnipeg Mountains were consistently the best team in the tournament, winning eleven tournaments. They were actually the first and last winners of the tournament. The tournament became such a loved event that it even became broadcasted in the U.S. in the 1930’s for Americans to enjoy a few days later. Unfortunately, due to the second world war many teams were forced to fold and/or combine with others. There was a large fear that that because the teams became so few and far between and the leagues were starting to unravel, that the sports’ world would lose the Sir Douglas Cup and the excitement that the tournament brought. However, grandson of Sir Douglas (who tragically passed away in the winter of ’29 due to a massive heart attack), T.D. McGuire proposed an idea to the better teams of the leagues to start a new “super league” that would play each other in the season and then the best teams would play in The Tournament for the Sir Douglas Cup. The new league would cover more than 1,800 miles of and consist of ten teams. The teams being: the Montreal Badgers, the Toronto Huskies, the Winnipeg Mountains, the Windsor Otters, the Ottawa Owls, the Boston Admirals, the Chicago Crusaders, the Minnesota Moose, the New York Beavers, and the Wisconsin Bulldogs. The new league would be called the World Hockey League and in a quote from newly voted league president T.D. McGuire “the World Hockey League brings the best hockey, night in and night out with an exciting forty-five game schedule AND an even more exciting version of ‘the Tournament’ to determine the winner of the Sir Douglas Cup”. The WHL would play a forty-five-game schedule with each team playing the other teams five times throughout the season. The Tournament would be the same format as before with the top four teams playing a best of five series with the top seed playing the last, and the second and third playing. The WHL would begin play in October of 1948.
  8. NPHL Hockey Logos

    Hey Guys! I have returned to the forums to announce the Northeastern Pennsylvania Hockey League. The NPHL is a group of dedicated hockey fans that want to play in a league but there is just one problem...they can't skate! So we decided to play a form of "Dek Hockey" on outside basketball courts. 3 on 3, no goalies, street puck, and we use the small skill nets for a goal. The uniforms will consist of a T-shirt, basketball shorts and hockey gloves. (And obviously sticks!) The NPHL will premiere the Summer of 2019 and right now we are in the phase of coming up with the team names. We have TWO teams as of right now and we would like to have about SIX. Hopefully as this thread goes on we will create a phenomenal looking league with the help of CCSLC! Alright! Up first is the League Logo. Its is the state of Pennsylvania with a hockey stick in negative space. The tip of the hockey blade is touching North East Pennsylvania. As Always, C&C is Welcome! Hope You Guys Like This One! Spoiler: The LAKE ARIEL STAGS are next!
  9. This is still in the early stages, but I've put together a look for a Seattle NHL franchise based on one of the names listed as a possibility; the Seattle Sea Lions (or Sealions, SeaLions?). For the logo I'm taking inspiration from the AAU SeaWolves work I just did, I'm trying to work an "S" into the shape. and still use northwest coast tribal shapes. I've also been referencing photos of dominant male sea lions and using their distinguishing features (high forehead, prominent whiskers, thick neck/chest). This is just the first sketch, but let me know what you think of the look I have going so far.
  10. NCAA Hockey Re-Design (COMPLETE)

    After nearly 3 years of working on this, I have finally completed what started out as a complete 59-team (now 60) re-design of every D1 hockey program in the NCAA. When I first started this I wanted to post them all at once, yet I had no idea it would take me this long to do. But here it is. Notes: - All jerseys were done with a CCM template simply for my sake of not having multiple templates. - The helmets in the pictures will seem off on some images, that's simply because I started off with having a home & away helmet and it was easier to just erase the one helmet instead of doing that and re-positioning it on every image. I eventually decided to just go with the singular helmet that they do presently. - Helmets don't have cages, this was an oversight. - Names on the jerseys are not up to date. Goes to show how long it took me to do this. - I tried my best to have every team have a unique striping pattern from each other. - Some jerseys build off jerseys that they team may have already used.

  11. Finally got some time to mess around with these hockey uniform templates. I thought I'd try doing hockey uniform versions of the 4 final teams in the NFL playoffs. Never did a mash up before so thought I'd try it out. Wanted to see what the thoughts were. It's the Patriots, Jaguars, Vikings and Eagles. I took various parts of the design from elements of the football uniform, IE: Pant shell stripes from pants, socks from socks or sleeve striping and jersey elements influenced by the elements on the football jerseys. Really enjoyed doing these and experimenting a bit. I didn't change/adjust any of the team logos. I just used the versions that the teams use in the NFL. Hopefully this works.
  12. Havoc Emoji Jerseys Sorry don't know to post images on my phone
  13. I recently entered a contest held by the Post2Post YouTube channel about redesigning the logo of current NHL teams. It was possible to send a entry for every team but I only entered with three. I chose the teams I already had an idea for which were the Coyotes, Oilers and Islanders. I could have done also the Kings logo but I ran short of time. I'm pretty happy with the overall result as all my logos made the top 63 and the Isles logo arrived 4th (it was 5th but then second logo got disqualified). Still, I was a bit disappointed for the other entries as I felt that in the previous contest they had way better entries in the top10 while in this one some were a tad weak. I'd like to hear some comment on my work as I mainly tried them out just because I really enjoy contests and events even if in the end my works are just average. Here you have the link if you want to have a look to the other entries. Here you have my entries I decided to redo the Coyotes logo just because I've always felt like their logo was nice but a bit too busy near the coyote's eyes and that the only animal head was a bit odd just like that. As a second I went with the Oilers also if I like their current logo (they are my favourite team) but I see that it is a bit outdated and in my opinion not old enough to be an historical one, like the Canadiens logo, so it should be updated. While I quite like the overall result of the drop on the gear wheel in the end I'm not completely ok with the helmet. It looked like a good idea to incorporate it but maybe the logo could have looked better without it. With the Islanders I had the easiest task as their logo is pretty awful. I know they won 4 Stanley Cups in a row with it, but the same I've said for the Oilers applies here. I know that the fisherman logo was higly hated but I think that it was a bold move out of the comfort zone they should repeat in the near future (without the teal please...).

    Does any one here have ties to LSUA or know anyone who does? They held a logo contest back in August & have yet to post anything about it. Wondering what became of it, I've tried to make contact but haven't had much luck. Below is the add they posted. If this is not the right place for this by all means please move it to where it belongs, thnx!
  15. Canadian Military tribute jersey

    Hey everyone, I work for my city's Jr B hockey club as graphic designer, and I've always had ideas for speciality jerseys that we could wear throughout the year. This November for Remembrance Day, I have designed a special Canadian Military themed jersey. It's based off of what Canadian Military personal wear when not in combat. Sadly this won't see the ice First time designing a jersey like this, let me know what you think!

    This is a league for noobs, bad pictures are inevitable, enjoy. First Concept: Albuquerque Phoenix
  17. IIHF/Olympic Hockey Redesign (93 teams!)

    Over the past year or so, I've been working on concepts for IIHF teams. I think I got a little bit carried away. I've completed uniform designs for every single IIHF national team, including some other teams that haven't received IIHF recognition. 93 teams in all, 199 uniforms total. With Nike releasing the uniforms for this year's Olympics this week - and many not getting a good response - this felt like the right time to post these. All the designs can be found via this imgur link. Just to save you a click, here's what the teams taking part in this year's Olympics should (for me) look like.
  18. This is the night you love to hate. For this series, I am going to create a new set of uniforms for the teams playing on NBCSN's "Wednesday Night Rivalry" (stupid name, I know). Similar to how the NFL has their color rush games on Thursday nights, the NBA has their "statement" jerseys, and how many different "rivalry" uniforms are worn in college football, this would be the ideal time for Adidas and the NHL to showcase new designs on a national stage. There will be color vs color! There will be all new uniforms! There will be throwbacks, too! Stay tuned to see how this series unfolds. 11/1/17 - Philadelphia Flyers at Chicago Blackhawks
  19. American Street League

    American Street League is a street hockey league that was supposed to resemble the BIG3 basketball league. Less players, a center, two wings and a goalie. First one to 10 goals wins. There are only 4 teams. Chicago Wind Sox, Green Bay Great Lakers, Los Angeles Californians and New York Boroughs. Side note - I would love to see an artist on here, who has actual skill doing this unlike myself, (lol) create a Street Hockey League kinda like the BIG3 basketball league. It seems like it would be a fun project with really creative teams and just a fun league in general. **Some of these logos have been used on a different username of mine that I forgot the password too.

    Just wanted to share a new template I created intended to display a uniform of any sort. Below are two finished examples, one with soccer, and another with football equipment. Message me to get a hold of a blank template with no watermark. It is saved as a png. file and I personally used Nothing special just hoping it may spark someone's interest. Enjoy! I am accepting feedback to adjust as well.

  22. New Series - Redoing the NHL

    I'm starting a new series where I am going to redo the home & away sets for every single team. Starting from the top, here are the Ducks.
  23. DT Concepts' 2018 Winter Classic

    Here's what I came up with for the upcoming Winter Classic.
  24. Welcome to the new World Synthetic Ice Hockey Association (WSIHA). I'm looking to get as many teams to join as possible. In this concept, there will be leagues all over the world. Africa, Asia, North and Central America and Caribbean, South America, Oceania and Europe. The top league (the World Synthetic Ice Hockey Association) and its affiliate leagues will be in North America. The game itself is very simple. The rink uses synthetic ice instead of ice to have cheaper cost for each franchise. The rink is 50ft by 94ft. The rules are mostly the same as the current NHL overtime rules. The main difference being that there is no off sides. Instead, there is illegal clearing which happens when a player passes the puck from behind their own blue line across the other blue line. periods are only 15 min. instead of 20. Teams play with 12 players and 2 goalies. The top league in North America and the world will be the World Synthetic Ice Hockey Association. This league will play 82 games. They will have best of 7 playoffs. The idea would be that it's the same level of hockey as the AHL. This league will close at 32 franchises. Franchises can not be in NHL cities. All franchises must be approved by me. All franchises must have an ISIHL affiliate. The WSIHA’s top affiliate is the International Synthetic Ice Hockey League (ISIHL). They will play 72 games. They will have best of 7 playoffs. ISIHL teams do not have to have an affiliate. The ISIHL will only accept affiliate teams after 32 teams. Agin same thing franchises can not be in NHL cities and must be approved by me. The WSIHA’s second affiliate and top affiliate of the ISIHL is the Major Synthetic Ice Hockey League (MSIHL). MSIHL teams do not have to have an affiliate. They will play 62 games. They will have best of 5 playoffs. They will only be playing in conference games. the MSIHL will close at 64 teams. Agin same thing franchises can not be in NHL cities and must be approved by me. The WSIHA will have a partnership with Adidas similar to the NHL. The ISIHL and MSIHL will both partner with CCM. All of the synthetic ice panels will be provided by Kwikrink. Other 3x3 leagues are coming and will be in other threads. My idea is that you would join in and create a franchise for at least one of the three leagues. Ounce all leagues have at least 32 teams I will release the schedule for the first season. please submit like this: (WSIHA) Location: Sacramento Team Name: Nor Cal Seals Colors: Kelly green, California gold, snow white Logo(s)/Uniforms: coming soon (ISIHL) Affiliate: Sacramento Location: Santa Cruze Team Name: Golden Seals Colors: Kelly green, California gold, snow white Logo(s)/Uniforms: coming soon (MSIHL/ISIHL) Affiliate: Sacramento/Santa Cruze Location: Long Beach Ca Team Name: Mariners Colors: Kelly green, California gold, snow white Logo(s)/Uniforms: coming soon Here are the league logos:
  25. I haven't made a concept in a while. Kinda odd. Anyways, here's a combination of two of my favorite things, the Grateful Dead and hockey. Not a whole lot to explain here. Symbolism is pretty clear, and the entire thing was just done for fun. What do you think?
