Hello wide-ish world of Sports Branding!
I've been following this site and some forums for a while now, but didn't really have any reason to start an account as I had nothing to post. After venturing into illustrator due to a regional competition, I wanted to try my hand at creating things that actually interested me through that program. At first, I screwed around with some general logos and even some "sketches" of arenas that I had been creating in my mind (pipe dreaming). I still do some of that stuff, but recently, I entered this wonderful site called hockeyjerseysconcepts.com, and found this wonderful competition to rebrand the Wheeling Nailers (ECHL). This is my first uniform concept ever and I tweaked the logo as well.
That concept can be found here: http://photobucket.com/gallery/user/HockeyJerseyConcepts/media/bWVkaWFJZDo5MzkzNDgxOQ==/?ref=1 (I don't know if that will actually work being new but fingers crossed...)
Now quite frankly, that was ok minus the fact that I forgot to take out that ugly orange rectangle because I was in such a rush to get it in. I didn't win, obviously, but I mean it was a decent enough start. I still browse that website, but I'm not entering the Pairs Competition (yet).
I noticed that on the forum home page, everyone can see my name as the newest member (more than 20 people already viewed my account), so I wanted to get the post out, and like the concept in the link above, this post was rushed. Mind the multiple grammer errors i darn did have in here. In these farms of forums, I hope to create some content to share with other people, get some inspiration, and help people with their concepts. Speaking of which, if anyone actually comes across this post, I'd appreciate if you'd leave some feedback on the Wheeling concept (or tell me if that link didn't work), and a few tips would be amazing. Thanks, hkynik_55
