  1. A couple of things... Toronto's virtual crowd sounds louder and more involved than their usual corporate gathering, and... Tomorrow I'm cancelling my Bell services.
  2. Great to see this series back, Morgan33... The creativity and craftsmanship on display here are fantastic. It's kinda comforting to see some good ol' pencil/pen/marker and paper work. Keep it going!
  3. Great to see this thread back, WLD42!!! It's not only very well done, but it's a lot of fun, and we certainly need a big dose of some fun these days. Your Chocolatiers' concept is pretty sweet!
  4. Paul Rabil...The guy's a marketing force. Saw him in Hamilton playing against Canada in the box game. He stuck around for a couple of hours afterwards signing stuff.
  5. "Spiders" does seem to be the most popular option on the web. "Guardians" has some potential...
  6. Wow!... Nicely done, Sidney!...Great concept and excellent presentation. That 3rd jersey is beauty!!!!...Maybe should be their Away?
  7. There's talk of Seattle acquiring a pro women's hockey team. I've heard "Sirens" being bandied about as a possible name for that.
  8. That's too bad... pk was a regular contributor over in the Concepts. An all-out ban seems a little harsh.
  9. That Basilica logo is too good to NOT use on the home & away unis. How would it look on the side of the pants?
  10. I like the small but effective change of putting the stripes on the sleeves of the Habs' away unis . Also, they'd look great in that blue alt! Really good series.
  11. It looks pretty good actually... But I was sorta hoping for something with that beauty crossed-swords secondary, on a bold heraldic pattern.
  12. Gawd, the Jets look horrible. Trends in aesthetics seem to arc like a pendulum... always swinging that bit-too-far, before starting to change direction. Hopefully, the all-black uniform trend is in the last stage of its arc.
  13. I was kinda hoping that they'd pipe in some booing when Gary presented the Cup.... You know, just to keep the tradition going. Congrats to the Lightning and their fans.
  14. Well... The Battle of Seattle started way back in Jan. 2018 with 9 "teams"... ...And finishes up, over 2 1/2 years later, with over a dozen concepts and 60+ primary, secondary, and promotional logos... Thanks so much to all who have dropped by to visit. I've enjoyed your company. Take care out there, eh! sparky
  15. darkp...Thanks so much for your involvement & comments in the Battle. The Iceland branding was stellar, and, I thought the Kraken intro video may have been inspired by the Iceland model. They had the same feel to them. I didn't explore the Guardians concept too much. Seattle released its name decision shortly after I did it up... But I had the same thought as you...each component could have its own identity...I was thinking practice jerseys...A Kraken line, A Sasquatch line, etc. Anyway, thanks again dp.
  16. Thanks Morgan...Yeah, this stuff is fun, as you well know. Keep up the great work in your threads . And you're right...Adidas knocked it outta the park, IMO.
  17. Kraken ...and finally, the Blue-Green/Gold/White, nautical-theme Kraken. Home 'n Aways, and a Mets-striped tribute option...
  18. Sockeyes Honestly?...I thought Seattle was going to go with the "Sockeyes". The colours on the team's official website sure hinted at it. Here's home & away Sockeyes in "website colours", with an alt for the Kids...
  19. Totems ...was an early favourite in the name race, but faded in the final stretch. Here's the Totems home 'n aways in Green/Navy/Silver...
  20. SeaLions ...Would have definitely been a safer choice for a nautical-theme name, but would lack the uniqueness and bite of the Kraken monicker. Here's the Aqua/Gold/White SeaLions...
  21. Well...Kudos to NHL Seattle for going with the big, bold, nautical "Kraken"... And congratulations to Adidas for nailing a rather tricky identity. Very nicely done! So, with the name-game's time to steer this barge of a thread into its final port. I'll post up the final renderings that I had for the top names, and then, call 'er a day. Evergreens I ended up with a super-simple, traditional die-cut felt logo for the home & aways, and a script font word mark on a "plaid-cut" alt...
