Las Vegas Scorpions (NHL expansion identity) update 12/8/15

Recommended Posts

Las Vegas Announced 6 possible team names that they will let fans vote on. Silver BUllets was not included so I had to create a new concept for the team. I chose scorpions.

Here it is:

Jerseys will come soon after I get some feedback

One fix I'd make right away ..on the script the S has a small jagged edge that could easily be smoothed out to match the rest of it.

Solid start. I'd like to see the jerseys first before I make a full decision on this set.

And where are the list of the 6 team names? I can't find them anywhere? Thanks.

RoughRider...Although the official "VegasWantsHockey" group featured this poll on their website, the list was actually a collection of suggestions put forward by the Las Vegas Sun.

You can find the list and vote on your favourite here...LAS VEGAS NHL TEAM NAMES.

The options were...Aces...Black Knights...Scorpions...Mustangs...Miners...Monsoon(?)

"Scorpions" are, right now, a solid 3rd in popularity.

Christian...Great look!

Thanks sparky, the reason I went with scorpion is because there are quite a few concepts for the top two names, including yours. So I went with scorpions.

Decent work. I love the wordwark, but think it shouldn't be part of the primary. But the scorp on it's own is not enough.

How about the scorpion facing up, with the left claw in the shape of an L and the right in the shape of a V?

Good start, but I would change the scorpion, it kinda looks off.

I initially didn't like the name, but seeing this concept I may have changed my opinion. Love the orange and black, although its kinda ripping off the ducks a little. I wonder if you could do black and yellow and see how it looks? Or orange and something else? Just a thought. Either way, they look pretty sharp.

Personally I'm not a fan of having the name in the logo, so I think I'd have the secondary as the primary, but thats just me being picky.

Overall, solid.

I think the scorpion needs larger pincers. Right now it works better as a soccer badge than a hockey logo.

I hope scorpions win the vote. It has a ton of potential, identity wise, and there aren't enough arachnid-related sports monickers and if Aces does win, it will be a tremendous disappointment, IMO. Before I knew a poll was up, my personal picks would have been scorpions, sidewinders or Mirage.

on topic, your logo has a great start and a lot of promise, but still isnt quite there. For lack of a better phrase, it could use some "toughening up"

The logo looks great! Word mark and everything!

I can't wait for the uniforms, to make my full rendering on the set but it's a great start.

I have a suggestion, though, is to add another colour, like cactus green or sunset gold to reflect the Las Vegas landscape. I think that would complete the look.

Great work as always, Christian!

claws look a little wimpy, now that I look at it again. And like someone else said, it would be cool if it had one claw raised in a V or something like that.

Still a fan though.

i'm a big fan of the name scorpions, and i really like the direction of this logo.

my critiques:

i like the pose of the scorpion, but for some reason it's torso and head look more like a crawfish to me than a scorpion.

i really don't like the top-heavy S. I'd consider switching up the font entirely to something more edgey and sharp. less smooth and round.

i'd also suggest a color scheme closer to the bure/maclean/ronning-era canucks, maybe with a darker and more copper/orangey red tone. maybe similar to the horse-head flames era colors, too.

overall, it is a really fantastic start. i just think it is overall too passive in appearance and muted in color. i'm not suggesting putting a menacing snarl for a mouth, like an ECHL logo or anything... but scorpions are dangerous little dudes. they can kill. i'd give it a little more edge and aggressiveness.

I'd love to see it in a yellow-green neon colour, sort of like monster energy drink/yellow gatorade colours. Very "poison" coloured, I think it would work well with the scorpions concept. Although I guess the owner stated black gold and grey, so perhaps not. Still, I'd love to just see it.
