  1. So, I found the original Minnesota Vikings logo used from 1961-1965. I think this one looks better and cleaner than the current one displayed, and was wondering if we could update it. This is not a custom design by myself, it is the original logo designed by Karl Hubenthal in 1961.
  2. Northstar Soccer League

    The Northstar Soccer League is a fictional soccer league made up of 20 teams from all across the great state of Minnesota, I hope you enjoy this series.
  3. I had this idea for the Wolves a while ago when other NBA teams were rolling out their "Pride" uniforms. Minnesota was primarily known for French voyaguers, Scandinavian vikings, Native Americans. I figured the MNUFC Loons and NSC Stars (when they were around) used the French "L'Étoile du Nord" theme and the Vikings using the viking theme that I should go with the Native aspect. The Ojibwe and Dakota are Minnesota's main tribes. I forget why, but I went with the Ojibwe word for 'Wolves' being 'Ma'iigan'. So using Daniel Ramone's template, I threw this together with the new Midnight Blue and Aurora Green of the wolves. I didn't think the current number font of the Wolves worked well with this, so I found a Jimmy Butler shirsey online and used that. The trees are from the promo when the Wolves first announced they would be unveiling a new logo. C&C appreciated!
  4. Hey guys, EJaws here. Im deciding to start a Minnesota High School hockey redesign. Ill be starting with the Metro East conference and we will go from there! LETS MEET THE TEAMS/PLAY HOCKEY! Hastings Raiders [Royal Blue & Gold] Henry Sibley Warriors [Red & Las Vegas Gold?] Hill Murray Pioneers [Green & Black] Mahtomedi Zephyrs [Navy & Gold] North St Paul Polars [ Red & White] Simley Spartans [Blue & Red] South St Paul Packers [Maroon & White] St. Thomas Academy Cadets [Blue & White] Tartan Titans [Black & Blue] To Begin this project i started with remaking the Conference logo. I decide i needed to remake it when the only image I could find was 90x79. I really like the way this logo was going, so I tried to clean it up a bit. OLD LOGO-> NEW LOGO-> CC is appreciated
  5. I want to start this off by saying that IMO much of the Timberwolves current set looks good (but I am a fan of the team). I am of the group of people that thinks they should reach back and use a blue/green/silver color scheme. I also think that the current "angry wolf head" looks like a strange wolf/coyote/saluki mix. All of these thoughts will show through in my concept. There are things about this concept that may have been tried, in another way, before; but it seems like this is the first time they're all put together into one concept. So I give you the Power of the Pack:
  6. Let me start by saying that this is NOT intended to replace the grinning Goldy. Also, I KNOW that the school would not replace the current Goldy with this one. After I did the Michigan Wolverine and Wisconsin Badger I thought I'd try to give a similar feel to the Minnesota Gophers. I used the 13 striped ground squirrel for reference; no it's not a gopher but judging by Goldy's tail it's what he is based off of and many people call the ground squirrel a gopher. I think it turned out to have a good balance of cute and fight. Comment with your thoughts.
  7. Wild and Rangers Sets

    Attempt at neatening up the Wild that I sent into HJC and was looking for some C&C on. Tried making their set more cohesive among other adjustments.
  8. About a month after I meant to get started on the final leg of the Anniversary saga, here I go...the multi-team North Stars series finally begins, and we kick things off with the 60s. The Wild do battle with the Predators, whose uniform design is based on one of their spiritual ancestors, the Nashville Dixie Flyers Down in Big D, the Stars face off with a foe that can legitimately be the visting team in any decade...yes, it's the 'Nucks again, this time borrowing from their minor league namesakes. For the upcoming 70s post, I'm considering using the Cleveland Monsters instead of the Blue Jackets for the Barons tribute. Very strongly, I might add. I give you an early preview of the disco decade...the Sharks, paying tribute to the California Golden Seals (at home, for once) take on the Avs (in the style of the Nordiques' originals)
  9. Minnesota Wild Home Jersey Concept

    I personally like the red home jerseys, but as an alt, not the home jersey. So I came up with something else. Feedback is appreciated.
  10. Minnesota Timberwolves Court Revamp

    Lets face it: the current T-Wolves primary logo is outdated. They need to use the howling wolf in a circle as their primary logo. With that said, I have a concept for a revamped Timberwolves court. Tell me what you think!
  11. Minnesota Wild Throwback Jersey

    This is my take on a Minnesota throwback jersey C&C is appreciated *Template created by Doug Houvener
  12. Minnesota Wild home jersey concept

    Hey all. Here is my take on a new home jersey for the Minnesota Wild. I think their current home jersey has too much red, and feels like it classhes with the green, however I did not want to get rid of it all together. I also think that Minnesota's logo is beautiful and should be showcased. So I chose to use that logo instead of the roundel one the team currently uses. Let me know what you guys think.
  13. Back when I was a college student in 2011, I made a hybrid T-Wolves logo that combined the original logo with the current one. Yesterday, I finally decided to re-make it with improved bezier curves. This is the original image from 2011 (that quite few people have stolen and claimed to be their own logo over the years...but I digress...): And here's the new one with different color scheme and backgrounds/borders: Lastly (for now) here's one I just whipped up that I don't feel that good about...but it's a direction I'd like to explore more: Thoughts? I know the actual re-brand will likely alter things to a much greater degree...but I'm going to at least enter this into ESPN's contest. Just don't know which one yet.
  14. Minnesota North Stars

    I'd seen that unused black-heavy North Stars alternate set in the Unused Logos thread, so I decided to see what it'd look like with numbers. Not much of a true concept, I know, but I digress. And then I wondered how it'd look if the black was replaced with a very dark green (trust me, it's green).
  15. Minnesota State Flag Concept

    I came up with this Minnesota State flag concept. I have a few alternative color schemes but I'm pretty set with the design. The one shown is my favorite but the full album link is provided on the bottom of the page. The colors are darker versions or copys of the current state flag colors,The Nordic cross represents Minnesota's Nordic heritage, and the North Star represents the North Star State. I'm open to ideas and C/C! Full Album Link: http://imgur.com/a/TSGuw
  16. Chicago Huskies hockey

    Chicago Huskies concept is part of the fictional Great Lakes Hockey Association that also has my other concept for the league the Marathon Argos based in Marathon, Ontario. I plan on posting this to Hockeyjerseyconcepts. I altered the UConn Huskies logo to look more like my huskie Moxie's fur patterns and tones. She has more of a cream tone and not white that is why there is little to no white color in the concept. and the pawprint is based off of her own pawprint . There will be more designs of other teams coming possibly.
  17. Ultimate Minnesota Sports Logo

    A few years ago I posted a version of the logo that was still a work in progress. Here's the new, completely remastered version that was 100% created/recreated in Illustrator: https://www.behance.net/gallery/25720211/Ultimate-Minnesota-Sports-Logo It's a combination of the following logos: My ultimate goal is to do one for each state. Thoughts?
  18. The current ‘Wolves branding is a slight fixer-upper of a logo that was originally introduced in 1996. As of late, their aesthetic has gone from a nice mix of green and blue, to looking more and more like the Orlando Magic (especially with their two primarily used wolf-head and howling wolf logos) and in their uniforms, utilizing only black, blue and silver. The current trees look like legos, and the yellow in the eyes are garish. The NBA has an overabundance of blue, and unique color schemes are few and far between. With such a unique name, that suits the area so well, the Wolves owe it to themselves to have a stand-out and cohesive brand. With a young, fresh, unique and star-studded line up including the likes of Karl Anthony-Towns, Andrew Wiggins, Ricky Rubio and Zach LaVine, the Wolves need a brand that reflects this new energy. A full-view PDF presentation with process, uniforms, court, apparel and more below. Short preview images below the link: http://issuu.com/ianbakar/docs/ianbakar_timberwolves_rebrand2015/1 I realize the color settings turned out a little muted in the PDF. It's never done that to me. Still trying to figure that out.
  19. Minnesota has a lot of hope going forward. That hope will likely produce a new look in the coming years. This is my refresh/tweak of their current primary. I've always liked their primary but thought it was lacking a little fierceness, the eyes always looked dull. Also, I'd love to see the team re-incorporate the original Blue-Green color scheme. My reference material, aside from the current and past primaries, is this photo:
  20. Minnesota Timberwolves rebrand

    Hi everybody. I've been slowly working on a rebrand lately of one of my favourite young new franchises at the moment, the timberwolves. I think its finally at a stage to present at least v1 so let me know what works and what should be improved. The main ideas were to make it clean and minimal and a bit more modern than the marks they have now, although I thought of redoing the sort of cool wordmarks they have now I chose to modify a font to create a custom lettering system for this. The colours and jersey follow the bucks a little bit in trying to be more minimal and I thought it was a good direction considering the colour scheme, and maybe using the grey a bit more than they currently do considering its the main association with wolves. Also I focused on a bit more of a geometric look for the primary as I found it hard with the composition of the first wolf I made. I also think I might do a media guide or something with this current branding. Cheers let me know what you think
  21. Minnesota Wild Concept

    Hey guys I'm back with another concept. This time I wanted to redo the Wild how I want to see them. I wanted to keep wheat as a color, but it just doesn't work because the away jersey is normal white. My solution was to add another color to the stripes. I made a colored yoke with an outline on the home, and added a red outline to the away yoke. I chose a new font because, why not. I also extended the stripes to the end of the jersey. As always give me some C&C! Enjoy! Also, it was made in Paint.net
  22. Concept Logo for New Minnesota MLS Team

    The news that the MLS is adding Minnesota United FC to the league effective 2018 made me very excited. I am assuming that they will use the same name and logo package that they are currently using in the NASL, and I really like that logo, but for the purposes of this concept I am giving them a new name. So here is Minnesota Gemini FC! Some things to note here: -We've got the constellation Gemini appearing with a soccer ball within the state of Minnesota. I like the usage of the constellation in this instance because it ties into another sports team in the area. -The star dotting the 'i' in 'Minnesota', appearing in the far northern part of the state, is meant to evoke Minnesota's status as the northernmost contiguous state in the US as well as its nickname of the North Star State. The constellation imagery is a continuation of this star theme. As of right now, this is a pretty rough sketch of what I have in mind; this is also my first concept wherein I create a logo from scratch so I would love to hear some C&C on this logo. Thanks in advance!
  23. Minnesota Wild Home Jersey Concept

    I personally dislike the Minnesota Wild's red jersey, so I made it green here and I used the bear head instead of the roundel logo. Let me know what you think.
  24. Hey forum! I'm trying to bring back the glory days of The Minnesota Timberwolves, the days of K.G. and Spree. Here's the court which has elements from their 2003/04 season court and the actual court that they use right now. Tell me! Should I do the jerseys as well?
  25. Another Minnesota Vikings Concept

    Thought I'd throw my hat into the ring. This is mostly what I think Nike could do, with some personal tastes thrown in. I kept the clues we have so far (new helmet, gold wordmark under collar, purple collar) and went with a modernized throwback. Starting from the top, the helmet features a new horn that finally matches the logo. This also solves the Revo Speed issues, as it doesn't cross any air holes. The helmet itself is a semi-matte (like the Seahawks) with a scratch/scuff pattern at the bottom a la Rutgers. The jerseys and pants feature yellow-white/purple-yellow Northwestern stripes with angled cutoffs and the scuff pattern in the center stripe. The numbers and NOB are a custom block font (Nike's new thing), with angles matching the angle of the stripe cutoff (30 degrees if anyone was curious). The numbers also feature the scuff pattern, while the NOB is yellow to match the wordmark on the front of the jersey. Lastly, the viking head remains on the sides of the pants. So, here it is!
