  1. Looks like they updated the news site to remove a lot of the bloat! I'm considering this a personal victory. Good job, me.
  2. Sorry if this isn't the right place to post this, it's just been bugging me ever since the redesign and it's ironic that a site that focuses on logos and design in particular suffers from such poor design. The news page of this site needs some serious rethinking. The format is broken up into various sections from a couple of carousels cycling through new articles, a ticker also displaying new articles, an listing of articles displaying the very same articles and a panel on bottom right of page listing, you guessed it, the same articles. This is overkill. To demonstrate my point, I've highlighted the same article in each section of the news page. There is no reason for viewers to have to look at the same headline 6 different times on one page. I get that there may not be a huge amount of sports logo-related news to fill up the page's current format but maybe that's a formatting issue. I'm not web designer but as a frequent on this site, it pains me to see such terrible design.
  3. Joe Thornton using a visor during the 2010 Olympics (and sans beard if you consider beard equipment)
  4. GIMP is a free alternative that supports vector shapes.
  5. Along the same lines, Cam Fowler with Anaheim's original Reebok jerseys.
  6. This may be a bit of a stretch but how about the Ottawa Senators introducing a red alternate jersey with a forward facing logo in 1997, it eventually becoming the primary home jersey in 1999, and the same look essentially being used for the Reebok rebrand in 2007?
  7. Put this on a shirt and take my money.
  8. I feel like the Senators have done exactly that for better or for worse. Everyone has a nostalgia-boner for the original 2D logo, so when they put out surveys asking fans what direction their rebrand should go in...
  9. Icethetics posted a great article about the Sabres' transition. Using the classic logo, and using a blue that's not the original royal blue but still lighter than the current navy. https://www.icethetics.com/news/buffalo-sabres-show-signs-of-returning-to-royal-blue
  10. how about some league logo rainbows? edit: damn, should've swapped Minnesota and Dallas. WHATEVER
  11. Trevor Linden in the Reebok-era Canucks jersey. Such a strange sight for me.
  12. Personally I don't like the forced inclusion of orange. Why not omit the stick entirely? It such an outdated 90s motif that doesn't even make sense in the context of the logo (we eating hockey sticks because we are aggressive, grrrr). Teal, silver, black and white are already enough colors. Add orange and you've got a mess of 5 colors. Maybe a gray shark is monochromatic but if the base of the jersey is teal, I don't see any issues with that. Here's a concept I made a few years ago that incorporates the current shark with the original triangle.
  13. Oh wow, I never noticed that until you pointed it out. Pretty good example of EA just recycling logos. I would if I could. Are you referring to the temple indent next to the eye?
  14. A project that I started last year, but taking the time to put it all together to display now (thanks shelter in place orders); the North American Hockey Association completed entirely through the "Create a Team" feature in NHL 19. Just a few notes before I get started: - The logos available for creating teams in NHL 19 were somewhat limited so I tried my best to create realistic, yet fun identities for North American franchises. This is also why you'll see recycled defunct or minor league identities (Oakland Golden Seals, Toledo Walleyes, etc.) - Also jersey designs and capabilities are limited, so although I've tried to make each identity as unique as possible you may or may not see a few similar designs. - A lot of navy. I know. I like navy, so sue me. Enjoy.
  15. Scrubs - Dr. Cox with multiple Red Wings jersey appearances
  16. All of the polar bears displaced by climate change weep at this image.
  17. Tons of fans have a hard-on for the 90s 2D logo and/or the O design. I guess more people like the modern 2D than I thought. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
  18. I know I'm in the minority, but I feel the Ottawa Senators have a perfectly fine 2D logo here that they're not using, and have never used outside of some very early marketing material in 2007. Everyone clamors for the old 2D logo and I understand why, but personally I would love a throwback inspired jersey (so many great concepts have utilized the barber pole design, and even the black 90s design) with this logo and call it a day. edit: give me this and I'd be a happy man
  19. If you're in Chrome, you can drag the image to a new tab and save it that way.
  20. Erik Karlsson wore a 1997-2007 era Sens jersey for Alfie's retirement ceremony. Looks damn good in it, though.
  21. Yes! This jersey leak was from the summer of 2011, and according to this site, the Seahawks redesign was in 2012.
  22. San Jose has really upped their promotional night giveaways. They've been working with local artists to design their giveaways and they're putting out some really awesome stuff. My personal favorite being this one:
