  1. It's official the Indians will be no more. So now it's time to flood this board with new designs and I am throwing my concepts in there. Now about my concepts I wanted to remain as historic to the current franchise as much as possible. So therefore I choose to keep the same colors and also the C with a slight variation to it. But I don't mind the new Cleveland team just not changing the current C at all. Speaking of historic I looked up past Cleveland Baseball teams from the past and picked ones I thought had the most potential and were not already in use by a pro team. Cleveland Baseball have used nicknames like Cubs, Giants, Bears, Browns ect. that are already in use so I wanted to stay away from that. Also I wanted to create a mascot/logo idea that is similar to the mascots of the Orioles, Padres, Reds and Brewers. The three names I decided on concept for are the Spiders (most popular so far on this board and the front runner in my opinion), Elites (a Negro National League team that played in Cleveland) and the Foresters (the original team name was called the Forest City's but that didn't sound right to me). Spiders are pretty self explanatory in my opinion and the one I think is the furthest along in my opinion out of my drafts so far. Elites took me a while to come up with an idea for a mascot/logo. About the mascot it's a little obscure but it's President Garfield who only served six months in office until he was assassinated. From my research President Garfield was one of the only President's born near Cleveland. All the six other Presidents from Ohio were born more near Cincinnati from my research (I could be wrong on this). The red circle and stars are elements from the Ohio state flag. Foresters the mascot is suppose to represent a forest looking Big Foot /Yetti character. It does have elements of the old mascot which is defiantly on purpose because I love trying to preserve as much history as possible. All the fonts / wordsmarks used are the same font. I am not very good at turning fonts into being something more unique or creative (something I need to get better at). But in my opinion all Baseball teams should use some sort of script font because that says baseball to me. I would love some constructive criticism on these drafts. They are just drafts and know they can be more refined.
  2. Out of all the Reverse Retro concepts the NY Islanders really bothered me because let's be honest they didn't really try. So I quickly came up with my own using the Fisherman logo on an orange jersey. Not super creative just changed the colors on the Fisherman logo but wanted to give everyone an idea what it would look like. So what do you think? Would you buy this instead of the one they came up with? FYI: I added a extra wave at the bottom so there are four in reference to their 4 Cups a idea the team already did before.
  3. So much good stuff here. Sens: Every version of the Sens uniforms is right on the money. Would love to see them use all of those permanently. Ducks: Beautifully done but I never liked the gold color. Would love to see the gold replaced with the plum purple to see how that would look. Kings: I'm more of a fan of the 90's logo on the front instead of the crown. Detroit: Just awesome. Historic, simple yet all concepts are varied enough to give it a difference. These are all my personal opinions but these concepts are on the money.
  4. Wow! Thanks for the solid input! I appreciate it. I know there more tweaks that need to be done but sometimes when you work on something you lose sight of the details you pointed out.
  5. They already have or had a team called the Rollers in Vegas. I think they play in the tennis league so I was just trying to come up with something creative. But like I said I am not in love with the name.
  6. Because it's just a matter of when Las Vegas get's an NBA team I've been toying with names and logo ideas. Not in love with the nickname of the Snake Eyes but I think the design I came up with is cool. Would love some helpful input on how to make it better though. Btw, yes I know the variation logo kind of looks like sperm but just wanted to though it in there to see if anyone else can come up with ideas to make it look different.
  7. OMG! I just submitted my own idea for the Pigskins without even seeing this. LOL! I think it would be a great name.
  8. We all know the new name of the Washington Redskins is most likely going to be the Warriors or Red Hawks but I personally think it should be the Pigskins. It might sound silly but here's the logic behind this. 1.Most people already call the team The Skins. Therefore The Pigskin would still fit with the teams nickname. 2. A Pigskins is a perfect name for any football team because that's what they play with. 3. Last, the name Hogs is already has such a history with the franchise. So here are the logo design for the Washington Pigskins (no pigs were harmed in the making of this logo PETA!)
  9. Fantastic feedback! Thank you so much! I will go back to these and simplify these. Much apprecciated
  10. So I wanted to try my version of the new NHL team for Seattle. Since Krakens seems to be the front runner for the nickname that's the one I chose. Now there are so many designs out there and so many of them are FANTASTIC. I don't want to compare mine to those designs but would appreciate what works and maybe some feedback. About my design decisions. Colors: I went with the colors that the Mariners and Seahawks share because I am a big fan of the city color theme concept. Maybe I'll try the Super Sonics colors in a later version. Main Logo: I love history and really wanted to fit in the Seattle Metropolitans logo in my design with a Kraken element. 2nd Logo Design: It's a Kraken with the shadow of the Space Needle. I feel this one needs something but can't decide what or maybe it's just fine like it is. Alternate Logo: Similar to the main logo but with more of Kraken theme. Might work better for a Main logo instead. Uniforms: Really wanted to give the team a historic hockey look but not a fan of the all stripes look of the original Metropolitans. So I went more with a Habs uniform look. #seattle #krakens #climatepledgearena #seattleneedshockey #nhlseattle
  11. Anaheim Ducks Hybrid Uniform Redesign. I personally like the Webfoot D logo the Anaheim Ducks use on their uniforms. But I HATE their current colors. The only color that kind of makes sense to me is the orange because they play in Orange County. So I did some readjusting of the colors keeping the orange and then bring back the original plum purple and teal green colors. Then tweaked the current uniforms with the webfoot D logo and this is what I came up with. I personally think it's an improvement and would not mind the Ducks doing something like this starting next year.
  12. This concept of mine has been in the works for a while. I keep on refining it and I think I'm in a good spot to share with the public for some ideas of what works an does not work. I'm not completely sure about the court design. I can't decide if it is too much for just right. Anyway here is the background on the logo. With the popularity of the Golden Knights there is much talk about Vegas getting an NBA team. Now when the NHL gave Vegas a team the league strictly said no gambling nicknames and I am sure the NBA would say the same. So I came up with the idea of Atoms because of the A-Bomb testing in Nevada during World War 2. In fact there were actually viewing sites in Las Vegas during this period in history. Plus the Atomic museum is in Vegas if you ever wanted to check it out on your next trip. The main logo is a mushroom cloud with a red basketball in the center. Below the ring is the State of Nevada with the nuclear symbol (also in the red basketball in the mushroom cloud) where Las Vegas is located. The variation logos are just different segments of the main logo. The alt. logo is a basketball with atoms spinning around it but the circular atoms have been replaced by the famous Vegas stars that you see on the world famous Welcome To Las Vegas Sign. Colors of Red, dark red, silver and ash grey are colors that fit with the area already and similar to UNLV because they put Vegas on the map for basketball in the 90's. I think I'm in a good place but would love to see what others think.
  13. Based on previous comments I did an edit to two because most people felt that was the most AHL like. Just brightened it up and added red. Plus I added an Alt. Shield Logo for the team. The logo below that is just a word mark I created but might need to work on the color scheme with that. I feel the Alt. Shield Logo may need some explaining. The overall shield is something a Knight would use plus that is the shape of the Vegas Golden Knights minus the helmet. On top you have an H with the S and K connecting it for Henderson Silver Knights. Next you have the Vegas Golden Knights alt. logo and a symbol of Vegas. Assuming the team will use the VGK main logo on the other shoulder that is why I choose this one. At the bottom you have a section of red and aqua stripes. The stripes represent the Area's first two minor league hockey team the Thunder (Aqua) and Wranglers (Red). Last you have the 7 hills of Henderson. An image displayed on the city seal.
  14. WOW! I love your designs and the thought put into it. I think the Clippers need to go back to the Sail logo. I wanted to share a logo concept with you that I came up with a few months ago that I was proud of but yours are great.
  15. For those who don't know the Vegas Golden Knights recently bought the San Antonio Rampage of the AHL. The Golden Knights will relocated the franchise to Henderson Nevada which is right next to Las Vegas. For more on the details about all of this click here. It is strongly rumored that the Franchise will be named the Henderson Silver Knights so I came up with some logo ideas of what it could look like. All of these logo ideas are just concepts I came up with and can still be refined if needed. Just wanted to see some opinions of what people like and what ones have potential.
  16. One thing that has always bothered me is the LA Clippers have NEVER used a sail boat logo in their main logo. Yes they have used the retro logo on occasion but they really should make it a primary logo in my opinion. So I recently came up with a modern logo design with a retro feel. I think it's definitely a good start but would love to know other people feedback opinion.
  17. Thank you all for your feedback! I'm still discovering what my style is. I will go back to the drawing board on this one then.
  18. So last week I saw on the main page that there was going to be a new ECHL team in Newfoundland called the Growlers so I thought sure why not try it. When I logged on today I saw that the logo has already been decided but still wanted to share my idea. My dog is much more cartoonish than there logo. Also the pattern behind it is the flag of Newfoundland. Please let me know what you think and if any modifications to make it better is needed.
  19. Couple of months ago a designer posted a topic called "Battle of Seattle" and in my opinion the work was excellent. It was so good in fact the new Seattle NHL Franchise should pick one of those logos for what ever team name they decide to go with. With that being said I did want to share my ideas for the Krakens and Seals. To be honest I've been sitting on these for a while and I have been unsure to share them or not. Now by no means are these ready to go but always appreciate feedback and helpful hints to make my work better. I am looking to grow and get better so I find this forum helpful in that because there are many good designers on here with some excellent ideas. Thank you in advance! Seals Version 1 To me it is a logo that looks like it belongs in soccer. I have not discovered an idea to make it more of a hockey look. Seals Version 2 (Alt. Logo) Not sure how I feel about this one. I think it's a good start but it may need to be simplified. Krakens Version 1 This one I personally like but I'm not sure how it would look on a uniform. Kranken Version 2 I think this one has the most promise out of all of them because it has elements of Seattle, the Kraken and the first professional Seattle hockey team.
  20. Thanks SNBSlugger! Is this a better edit? Second Edit New England Revolution Logo Tree And Paul Revere
  21. Thank you Whittier S for the feedback. Made some slight adjustments to the logo based on the fact it maybe too many elements in the logo! Took out the ball with the Stars too (Never liked that anyway, always thought of the 94 World Cup). Please let me know what you think now....

  22. Earlier this week there was a post about all the new uniforms for the upcoming MLS season. Something stuck out to me that the New England Revolution a original member of the league have never bothered to change their logo which is now 22 years old. So I thought I give it a shot but because others have done their own designs of this logo I wanted to give myself some parameters to follow. First, I had to keep all elements of the original logo in the design, next I need to keep with the same color scheme, any new elements must be accurate to the region and finally it must have a classic soccer look. The shield shape is the same shape that is on the Massachusetts flag, I kept the orginal elements (stripes/font/soccer ball with stars) and on the right side added a silhouette of Paul Revere (Revolution Symbol plus it's a acknowledgement to the Midnight Riders), the arm and sword on the Massachusetts flag and Faneuil Hall (Another Revolution Symbol). Please let me know what you think and if this could be something the Revs might be able to use in the future. New England Revolution New Logo idea First Edits based on Feedback....

  23. Been a long time long time fan of the site and just created an account to share my designs (this is my first design I am sharing). Like a lot of people on this site many people are incredibley excited about the possibility of the NHL coming to Seattle. When the hopeful franchise trademarked some names the nickname Emeralds stuck out to me because it is different, Seattle is the Emerald city and possible logo design could be difficult because there is no character tied to an emerald. I created two logos the one with the E would be the primary logo while the S logo would be the alternate logo. Please give me some feedback on what you like and maybe what I might be able to change. Thank you in advance for your feedback. (Hopefully I shared these photos right from this site?) Seattle Emeralds Proposed Logos
