  1. Great topic! My favorite trend of the decade was teams correcting course and returning to a modernized classic look of their uniforms, (ex. Penguins, Leafs, Blue Jays, Bills, Vikings) Some teams did it, I think became perfect and then changed it more such as the Edmonton Oilers. I love the Royal Blue look that they left in favor of the orange. Then there were teams that are close but not there yet (Calgary Flames throwbacks are great but relatively unused, Miami Dolphins). My least favorite trends start with the Nike tampering with team uniforms. (Dolphins, Browns, Jags, Bucs, Titans) I like the Seahawks however. DISHONORABLE MENTIONS: 1. The Rams - LA uniform plan. Clashing of eras and colors 2. NBA uniform explosion - I will admit that some of the uniforms that they come up with are pretty cool but it is at the expense of teams having any sort of consistency and identity. I wonder what it will look like fifty years from now to look back at highlights with these teams looking like this. 3. The NFL One Helmet Rule - effectively ending creative throwback opportunities for teams.
  2. This was an awesome series! Almost all of the looks seemed like they would be upgrades.What was the template that you used for these? Really cool!
  3. Sorry everyone for the delay, had a few professional projects that started taking up a lot of time. To make up for it, I am presenting 4 of our Canadian franchises today. I have also taken some of your notes into account and am brainstorming future adjustments. After tonight, we have 5 clubs remaining. Then I will roll out the 2009 season.
  4. We are over half way through the franchises of the OHA. After we meet all of the teams, I will briefly shed light on some of the players, story and moments from the OHA's first nine seasons. At the conclusion I will unveil some fun event logos such as the 2019 Draft, 2019 Indoor Classic and 2019 Challenger's Cup. As for today, you will probably sense a collegiate feel to these two franchises. CHICAGO MARSHALS I was looking for a New York Rangers type name that is generic, simple, yet unique. Chicago, being such a classic hockey town needed to have a classic look. To go with a western vibe the Marshals sport gold and deep red. The look is inspired by the Boston College hockey program's. The logo is inspired by an old time Marshal's badge. NEW JERSEY JAGUARS This is probably the one team that I do not have a thoroughly researched rationale for its name. The Jaguar moniker was stolen from the short list of names the Devils considered when they were moving from Colorado. The logo is heavily based off of a royalty free logo that I found. The look is based off of North Dakota's look. It was one of my favorite all time looks. Man, I love college hockey uniforms the best!
  5. I agree with all of you. I'll check into that on the second go around. My first idea was to use the two trees to create an M with the negative space between the legs.
  6. The OHA proudly represents the beautiful country of Canada from coast to coast. Therefore this installment we present the Vancouver Cavemen and the Saint John Darts. VANCOUVER CAVEMEN The Cavemen idea was originally a fantasy hockey concept that I had for one of my personal fantasy teams. I am a Flyers fan, hence the orange and black. SAINT JOHN DARTS The decision was between the Tides and the Darts. The Darts gave me an opportunity to practice making a skull-pirate logo. Tomorrow we will head back to the USA.
  7. @Flames1fan in Illustrator you make the text the style that you want and then with the text selected go to OBJECT (at the top of the screen) ENVELOPE DISTORT then choose the style that you want. You can just play with it from there.
  8. Next up are two of the most successful franchises. One is the dominant force of the Canadian Conference, the other is the lovable underdog that has claimed multiple titles. OTTAWA WILD GOOSE The Ottawa look is meant to be unique and different from that of NHL teams. Their look is inspired by Western Michigan's hockey program. The logo was inspired by YURI KARTASHEV, but is mostly original. EDMONTON SOURDOUGHS The 'Doughs are known for the gold helmets. Gold helmets are to pay homage to the Gold Rush that so many prospectors went north for.
  9. I am totally with you on the cow pattern. My vision (which I am still working on) is that the cow pattern would look awesome on the goalie equipment so I didn't want to do too much. Will post once i make it work. Good idea!
  10. Yes my apologies, my attributions are forthcoming. The Sasquatch silhouette can be found in a bunch of different places and there for didn't attribute. We shouldn't have any problems going forward as I already for the attributions ready to go. Thanks
  11. Thank you everyone for the good start. The spokes on the wheel is a nod to the Bruins and the Sasquatch are inspired by the Hershey Bears (one of my favorite teams and identities). I was unaware of the Toronto Wolf Pack rugby team but at this point it's who they are. Go Pack Go! Tonight, I present you two more American teams before heading north of the border. NEW YORK RINK RATS I think it would be fun to attempt to make the 'Rats "Mighty Ducks-ified". The jersey is inspired by the old Trenton Titans jersey. The yoke is meant to reflect the Bronx Bridge. WISCONSIN BELLCOWS The 'Cows are one of my favorite teams. The attempt was to marry the Devils and Redwings looks into one. The name came from the Wisconsin dairy industry as well as a nod to the Wisconsin Badgers football program's running back legacy.
  12. Our tour of the OHA franchises will happen two teams at a time. The pairings are random. There is a 9 year history that will be unveiled a little later. Like I said yesterday, I tried to pick color schemes and identities that are unique to the city. 95% of the logos are my own. For the 5%, I will make sure to credit the artist or whoever. Here we go, welcome again to the OHA. First up is Boston and Seattle BOSTON FATHOMS SEATTLE SASQUATCH
