NHL Shield Redesign Concepts

14 posts in this topic

The current NHL shield, which the league introduced for the 2005-06 season, does its job decently, but in my view it has its share of issues. It's a bit cluttered. The "LNH" version doesn't look very natural.

 

There wasn't a lot wrong with the previous NHL shield either, and I used it as a base for my redesign of it. I did keep some things from the current shield, like its Stanley Cup silver color.

Here's an "LNH" version:

I also dabbled with some auxiliary symbols:

I also took care to ensure my shields didn't fall apart in one color:

I actually really like this as a concept. I don't want to see the NHL go with the whole sleek modern theme, but the designs you've made here look pretty polished. I could actually kind of see that SCP logo happening in like 10 years or so. So while i wouldn't really wish for this kind of change to become a reality, your concept is pretty interesting and you did a great job with making it work.

Maybe sooner than that based off of the screen behind Columbus coach the other day.

Saw that behind Cassidy too, you're right. Ugh.

The conference and playoff logos work the best.

 

I'm not a fan of the league-wide logo, though. Maybe either fill the "NHL" section in with silver or try switching the grey and black.

Something like this? (I left the letters black on purpose)

Simple but effective. I really dig this. Your updated league wide logo looks better in black.

I see the "W" for "Wales" but the "E" doesn't say "Campbell" to me.

 

Oh... West and East. That makes sense then.

 

I SMYTHE THEE

I considered bringing back the Wales/Campbell names but wanted something the league could plausibly use in this day and age.

These are awesome. Is there any chance I could use them in my worldbuilding project Hoenn, please, as it's set on an alternate Earth? :)

I love the simplicity of these logos. I would love to see the NHL adopt this or something damn close.
