  1. Hi everyone, I have recently started a new project where I have made it a goal of mine to combine all of the sports logos from NHL, NBA, NFL and MLB (and at times MLS) from all of the major cities in the U.S. and Canada to create a singular city logo. I know this has been done countless times before but the way my designs stand out is they are more cohesive. They feel less like something was Frankenstein'd together and can almost act as a standalone logo. Consider this the definitive collection. I say this with confidence because they were all composed in Adobe Illustrator with linework redone to make the designs more seamless, images rendered in crisp high resolution quality, each one taking several hours of work and trial and error and the cherry on top of the cake is that I own my own print shop so I can make stickers and shirts out of these designs. It's a true passion project for me. My journey began when I was first getting serious about graphic design, the summer right before I enrolled at DePaul in 2013. I created a mashup of all the Chicago logos because I wanted my own version of it. All the variations I had seen online did not do the city justice and I wanted something genuinely more badass that wouldn't look cheesy. I dubbed it "The Chicago Beast". It was cool for a few years and then I sort of forgot about it - well in 2019 I decided to take another crack at it and make a wildly popular rendition of this logo mashup combination - you may have seen it online (I made a North Side - Cubs and a South Side - White Sox version. Both featured elements of the Blackhawks, Bears and Bulls. I have made slightly different variations - some including the 6 star Chicago flag and others with different color arrangements. Fast forward to 2021 - A whole year of the COVID-19 pandemic lockdown had me yearning for another creative project that I can do for fun. I decided - why not give every city this same treatment? And so I did - "Major League Remix" (#MajorLeagueRemix). I will be posting the designs in this thread and would love some feedback! While I do consider these designs to be 'complete', as a true designer, I know there is always room for improvement, especially since teams change logos frequently. A few things to note (ground rules) for my concepts: They don't necessarily have to use the entire design of the logo in the mashup. They can be as little or as much as possible - the only rule is they have to look cohesive and make sense - no Frankenstein work! I often use past versions of team logos although I try to use the current ones as much as I can. This is because my goal is to make the logo look good, and if I use the core logo, it may not look the best. I have struggled a lot to piece some of these together because of the lack of uniqueness, clean design or symmetry so I have had to resort to alternates. Colors are fair game - as long as they are pulled directly from within the color palette of the city's sports logos. They all have a white border with rounded corners for consistency and also to set them up for sticker printing. That is all! I am so glad to be a part of this awesome forum - I can't think of a more perfect place to post this kind of work on the internet.

  2. Started playing with this idea before the retro reverse jerseys came out. Basically a slight update & cleanup of the original 90's mark. CC always appreciated!
  3. Just a fun little experiment based around the premise of the Panthers not making it through Covid & relocating to Quebec City for 2022/23 (sorry Panthers fans..). As the Avs own the Nords history I didn't want to go that route, and since the Panthers already have a strong, modern brand, I also wanted to retain some semblance of that as well. So after a thorough tweaking - Voila! the Couguars de Quebec... Primary; Pays homage to the former Panthers identity, while also incorporating aspects from Quebec City's rich history & symbolism. Secondary: Basically a similar premise to FLAs current secondary, remove text banner, replace Florida's flag w/ Quebec City's. Thoughts?
  4. Hi, I've been reading around many forums about people expecting the team return. Many believe that the iconic logo should stay as a primary, so I've decided to work on this and propose an other version of the this logo. Watch the video of the logo reveal before (No music) & check the rest under the video. C&C are appreciated! https://imgur.com/vDtPrUr
  5. With my 72 Project winding down, I thought to myself, "Maybe a break would be nice, get through the semester, and then start a new series." Well then the Reverse Retros were officially released. And then I said screw the break, let's jump into my next project, because honestly, I have no self control. Since the NBA style of doing jerseys is all the rage right now in the concept world, that was the genesis for this idea. 4 jerseys for every team, though there will be no "Association, Icon" style names. Home, Away, Alternate and a Legacy slot were the original four jerseys. Then it became 5 with the advent of the Reverse Retro jerseys. I'll be doing teams in order of how they finished the regular season, starting with the dregs of the league (Detroit *sheds tears*) and ending with Boston. Seattle will be featured, likely after Boston. Home - Away: If you were expecting sweeping changes for the home and away jerseys, then you're in the wrong thread. I tried that in the last NHL thread of mine, simply trying to match the home and away jerseys. So the away jersey is unchanged. The home jersey does change ever so slightly. The hem stripe, formerly running into the hem, moves up to match the away jersey as a stripe. Other than that, the pants, socks and helmets are all the same. Alternate - I always felt an affinity to the Stadium Series uniforms and felt that with some tweaks, they could be a good alternate that doesn't hurt the Red Wings brand. So I decreased the slant on the chest stripe from the original, and allowed it to continue on the back of the jersey. The sleeves now have stripes and don't run off the ends of the sleeves anymore. Winged Wheel moves to the shoulders. Modern D logo on the chest. Slightly larger stripes on the socks. No changes to the pants. Gloves change up the colors a little. Legacy - Revisited the '27/'28 and 75th anniversary jerseys. Kept it largely the same. Bevy of stripes on the chest, DETROIT in the middle of the big one. Stripes on the sleeves to almost match the chest. Socks match the chest stripes. Pants change the Winged Wheel logo to the Old English D. Helmet also uses the Old English D. Reverse Retro - Literally anything would have been better than what the Wings actually went with. White and Grey? I get it, how do you RR a team that has had 4 total uniform styles in their history? Maybe dig just a little deeper? I went with the '28/'29 Cougars uniforms, and Reversed Retro'd them! Red base, white elements. Rolled with the 2014 WC script and the shorter wing. Used the pants from the Legacy jerseys. Also the red helmet now has the Old English D instead of the wordmark C&C is welcome!
  6. I will be starting an expansion franchise in NHL21 naming a team in Wisconsin or Milwaukee as the location looking for everyone’s opinion on team name and colors. first thought was Milwaukee Muskies(state fish) with Tulane type colors love to hear all of your thoughts, thanks in advance!
  7. So I'm not entirely sure where or when it started, but I've heard bandied about the notion that the best sports logos, or maybe even best logos in general, should be able to be drawn by a bored 3rd grader on his notebook during class. I agree with this opinion generally, even if there are quite a few exceptions. The Flyers, 80's Phillies, Hawks, Whalers, Atlanta Flames, Buffalo Braves, etc. all have that classic 70's style logo look to them and are some of my personal favorite Big 4 logos thanks to that. So I got to thinking, what would the NHL look like if every logo passed the doodle test? And after a good while and a whole lot of doodling myself, here's my answer. I redesigned every team's emblem and tried to keep each as simple and easily replicated as possible. For creativity's sake I redid iconic and already very simple logos like Philly, St. Lou, and Montreal, and even remade the NHL logo itself. Let me know what you think of these little nuggets and whichever teams you'd like to see tweaked or elaborated, I'll tweak or do a few jersey sets and maybe small merch sets. Thanks People!
  8. Hey Everyone, this is my latest concept series, my Ideal NHL Series! Basically, this is what the NHL would look like if I had total control over everything jersey-related. To make this a little tougher for myself, Every single jersey must have at least one more or less noticeable change made to it. Each team will have 4 jerseys: Home, Away, Heritage, and Breakout. The home and away jerseys are the main jerseys in the set, to be worn for the majority of games. The Heritage jerseys pay tribute to either an earlier era in the team's history, a defunct/historic team in the area. Breakout jerseys are brand-new designs never before worn by the team. For this series, I will be going alphabetically by team name (Starting with Colorado, ending with the Wild). ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Let's kick this off with the Avs! I'm honestly not the biggest fan of the CCM/Adidas era jerseys and the A logo, so I decided to go in a new direction with the home and away. The two jerseys' arms feature burgundy and blue separated by mountainous white line, and a simple matching hem stripe. I personally love the C logo by itself, so I put that front and centre. The heritage jersey features a simplified version of the jerseys worn when Colorado won the cup in '01. Navy blue was used on the numbers and pants instead of black. The breakout jersey features a striping pattern inspired by the logo, and the diagonal striping creates a mountain shape when viewed from the side. What do you think? C&C is appreciated!
  9. I've been really impressed by the Seattle Kraken's identity despite the name, so I decided to try my hand at a Metropolitans-inspired Kraken jersey. The striping pattern is based off of the logo, including the tentacle. Thoughts? C&C is appreciated!
  10. Well, no time like the present. With the forthcoming announcement of the Seattle NHL's identity, I thought it time to post what I had done, actually as a school project and now probably going to be the letterhead of my design portfolio. I was inspired by the history of airplanes as well as Boeing being founded in Seattle, along with the Museum of Flight in Seattle (awesome place, if you haven't been and have the chance, I would highly recommend). I do acknowledge the fact that the Milwaukee Brewers do own the copyright to the MLB Seattle Pilots, but for a concept, I ran with it. I loved the idea of a double green for the base of the color scheme. I wasn't sure about a tertiary color other than white, and with the Sonics still not back in town, I felt yellow would be a welcome addition. The primary logo was designed around the idea of pilots wings. Secondary logo is the Space Needle with the viewing deck(?) replaced with the same style wings as the primary logo. Wordmark is a block font with the wings on the ends of the P and the S, with Seattle just above it. I wasn't crazy about the roundel logo, but my professor felt there needed to be another logo, so this was something I whipped up rather quickly to beat the due date. So fun fact, these jerseys were actually what my NHL 19 expansion dynasty wore and it made things somewhat easy building the rest of the identity (hence Marner and MacKinnon being the jersey models). I can't explain why I used the Senators Centennial Classic jerseys, but I fell in love with the style and the colors. Went with the primary logo on the chest, Space Needle on the shoulders. For the font, I went with a blocky, almost current Jags style number font. Also, came up with an inaugural patch. Again, not crazy about it, but I think it's simple and gets the point across. Went ahead and imagined the expansion with an alternate jersey ahead of time. The roundel I'm not psyched about becomes the only real logo for this set. Yellow is dropped in favor of grey, with the exception of on the Inaugural Patch season. The striping changes a little bit with the dark green flanking a thin stripe of light green. C&C welcome!
  11. The Alaska Amaroks would be an NHL expansion team, based in Anchorage, Alaska. Since the Sullivan Center is not big enough to host NHL games, a new arena would need to be constructed. The team would draw support from all around the state of Alaska (market size of about 750,000), as well as the Canadian province of Yukon. They would play in the Western Conference. The franchise would be the only Big 4 (American Football, Baseball, Basketball, Hockey) sports team in Alaska. An Amarok is a giant wolf in Inuit (Native peoples of Alaska and the North American Arctic) mythology. Main Logo: Wordmark: Uniforms: The pattern on the wordmark and the uniforms is based on an Inuit art theme, and also represents the mountains in Alaska. The uniforms all feature the Big Dipper, which is depicted on Alaska's state flag. C&C Welcome and Appreciated.
  12. I redesigned the Habs logo for an alternate jersey and instead of doing something based on their historic jerseys I decided to go super modern. The crest has 3 main parts. The very center is a Fleur De Lis in honor of their home province of Quebec (at the risk of drawing too much of a comparison to the Nordiques). I made it the center of an M for Montréal with the two “wings” on either side. I also separated the top part of the Fleur De Lis to make it the flame of a torch made from the bottom part, referencing the team motto “Nos bras meurtris vous tendent le flambeau, à vous toujours de le porter bien haut.” Or in English “To you from failing hands we throw the torch, be yours to hold it high.” The team’s hanger effect on their current jersey is the first part of that line, so I added the second part as this jersey’s hanger effect, completing the line of the poem and creating some vague symbolism of the classic jerseys passing the torch to this modern take. The chest and arm stripes were made thinner and modernized with the removal of the bottom white stripe and the addition of 24 ghosted Fleur De Lis on the chest, obviously representing the 24 cups they have won. I tried this jersey in blue at first, with the thought that there would then be a jersey in their arsenal for each color, “Bleu, Blanc, et Rouge”, but it kept looking either too much like a Rangers jersey or a Leafs jersey so I abandoned that idea and stuck with red. I know I will be labeled a heretic for messing with the Canadiens crest, but I thought it was a cool way to modernize the look of the oldest team in the league. Please C+C. Thanks in advance.
  13. I for one have never liked the current Dallas Stars uniform set. They are a franchise in an nontraditional market and they gave them a traditional look. They need to be more unique with their look in my opinion. Let me know what you think.
  14. I was going through some old concepts I made and came across a concept I made back in 2013. I dusted it off and applied it to this template. I did have a little difficulty making the concept with this template so bare with me a little. Let me know what you think.

  16. Hello, it's my first time in a good while doing a logo series, but I thought I had some stuff worth sharing. This little series is based on the premise of the owners of the Milwaukee Bucks deciding to expand on their sports holdings and launch expansion teams in various other leagues. I have dubbed this hypothetical enterprise the Deer Sports Empire. Currently, aside from the Bucks they own the Wisconsin Herd. I will be leaving the logos for those teams as is, partially because I really like them and partially because the idea is the owners are launching new teams with similar branding touches (colors, font, etc). I also will not be touching MLB or giving them an NFL team as there's no world where those things would happen. These are the teams and leagues I plan to do so far. A couple are already done or close to finished. As suggestions (hopefully) are made and new ideas come to me I may add to this list. If anyone has a team in a league they would like to see, feel free to make suggestions. I dont have uniform templates for all the different sports so I'm just focusing on uniforms right now. Posted Logos... WNBA: Milwaukee Does (Vers 2) ... Click here for Vers 1 MLS: Cream City SC (Vers 2) ... Click here for Vers 1 IFL: Milwaukee Staghorns --> Evolved from a swing-and-miss at a Mustangs Arena Football revival, which can be seen by scrolling through. NLL: Milwaukee Blaze MLR: Milwaukee White Harts NHL: Milwaukee Hunters
  17. With the announcement that the Vegas Golden Knights would indeed be getting a gold colored alternate uniform next season, I wanted to throw my hand at what I think could be a good alternate look for them. Here's a little bit of detail behind the thought process of this uniform. - I wanted to use the 8-pointed star silhouette somewhere on the uniform - I tried using the sword-star alternate logo on the front, but IMO it just doesn't work as a jersey crest - I wanted to have every color involved, which explains the splash of grey on the bottom of the striping - I wanted to have a "V" somewhere, which is why the hem is in that shape - I wanted to use a different font for the numbers. What better one to use than Casino Flat? C&C is appreciated! BTW please let me know if the image is not appearing.
  18. I have started a new NHL redesign that I have been posting on Reddit so far on r/hockeyjerseys but figured I would share here too. I have done 4 teams so far, which I will post here right away, and will be working through the other 28 at whatever pace I can get through them at. Open to feedback, but please be aware that I am not necessarily trying to make what I think the team should wear, or will wear, just being creative and killing time. Enjoy!!
  19. Okay so just to start off, I have no design sense whatsoever. So now that that's out of the way, let's get to the concept. I'm not really bored as much as I am lazy under the COVID-19 stuff, so I have forced myself to try to do something. I guess I'll try to design logos or something because why not. First, let's come up with a quirky and cool name. Under quarantine... what rhymes with quarantine... sixteen! Like a bracket! Because March! ..Right? Anyway, I decided I'd make concept logos for each major league, four for the NBA, NHL, MLB, and NFL, but I also want to do soccer, so throw in two for the MLS, making it eighteen. You may be thinking, that doesn't work for a bracket, and you're smart and you know that's right. But I came up with this brilliant idea at one in the morning, and when I woke up, I had already made a logo and posted it on Instagram so oh well let's make it up as we go. (why is the process of uploading images so strange?) Anyway, as you can see, I am very mature and professional. I tried to turn the toilet paper roll into a lowercase "q" (kinda like the Flyers with the "p"), but I don't think I really succeeded. I have mostly branded the series with just a single roll, and sports can be switched out by shoving them in the middle. I compiled a list of 36 cities and took to my Instagram and polled the poop out of the 12 people that follow me until it was down to the 18 logos to be made (if I stay motivated that long)
  20. So during the current stay at home order in place I've decided to sit down and take a crack redesigning the NHL's uniforms A-Z. This is some of my first concept work I've ever done in my 10 years of designing as a hobby so I would love some constructive criticism to help me refine my skills. The template that is the basis of the entire series was created by Avi S. and Ryan H. (No relation) and edited in many cases to fit my need for the work I wanted to do, that template can be found here. My presentation for the concepts was inspired by a few redesign series I stumbled across browsing the forums credit to those series for giving me some direction on how I wanted to show off the work I've done. That being said, with the way I want this series to go I made a conscience decision to not include gear when redesigning the teams, I found adding gear cluttered my presentation and made it look too busy, my focus is only on the sweaters. Now on to the actual designs.
  21. Well, with all this free time on everyone's hands, I've revisited an old hobby and gotten back into jersey design for the first time in years. And with all of this season's NHL games free for now, I found some inspiration in 2019/20's three outdoor games, which is where this concept series will start, and we'll see what happens from there. By way of (re)introduction, this isn't technically a new account, but as I said, it's been years, and all my old posts are archived and all my old images are disappeared, which is for the best since they were pretty terrible. I'm not a graphic designer, just a hockey fan who thinks sports uniforms are beautiful, and as a hobbyist, my medium of choice is MS Paint, with some minor Photoshop for logo placement, recoloring, and resizing. I'm always open to criticism, suggestions, ideas, etc., and to posting revisions based on them. First up in this series: 2020 Winter Classic Dallas Stars vs. Nashville Predators I thought that on the whole, the 2020 Winter Classic had great-looking jerseys, but that didn't stop me from overhauling them, mostly by going even closer to their inspirations, the Dallas Texans and Nashville Dixie Flyers. I also thought there was no excuse for this game not to have been a color vs. color matchup. They look great on the ice, the league needs more of them, and while I understand that travel schedules are the main reason for not having them, outdoor games with one-off specialty uniforms are the perfect opportunity to make them happen. And it makes it easier for the road team to bust them out at home later on. So expect to see more color vs. color sets in this thread. My Dallas uniforms are heavily inspired by the Texans jersey that featured the D logo, rather than their other uniforms that inspired the actual Winter Classic jerseys. I introduced silver as a way to mimic the Texans' two-tone-red stripes, and added it into the logo as well to make things more cohesive. The D-in-a-star patch from the Texans' sleeve stripes is also carried over into the Stars' jersey, rather than the Texas-shaped patch on one sleeve and the Winter Classic logo on the other, which has been moved to the chest on both teams' jerseys. The arm numbers have moved up to become shoulder numbers as well, to give the D-in-a-star patch room to breathe, and to fill the space left behind by the shoulder yoke that's no longer in my version. The tan pants and gloves have become a true brown, which is also the helmet's color to try and tie together the "let's pretend the equipment is leather" motif. Obviously, the Nashville sweater has become yellow instead of white, but the striping pattern isn't much different than what was actually done. The cuffs aren't navy anymore, the arm stripes are a tad wider to make up for that, and the chest stripe continues onto the back, because it's my personal opinion that chest stripes cutting off at the sides (looking at you too, Florida) look terrible with very, very few exceptions. I could justify it if it made the numbers illegible or messy, but that's not the case here. As with the Stars, the Winter Classic logo moves to the chest, putting the fauxback tiger head on both shoulders. I also replaced the full-bodied tiger on the helmet with the head-only logo, because the full-bodied logo just always looked weird to me. Yellow helmets offered a better contrast to the Stars' brown helmets than navy helmets would, and the navy logo stands out better. So that's the start of this quarantine project! Heritage Classic is likely up next before the Stadium Series. Comments and criticism are welcome, and if there's any strong consensus or ideas that really resonate with me, keep an eye out for revisions.
  22. *** I can’t seem to find the perfect color calibration on my laptop that I use for these, so PLEASE let me know if a color seems to differ from my explanation or what would seem logical to you. I made my own template for the very first time ( A TON of trial and error). (* Used the sportstemplates.net jerseys as a reference, and traced most of the elements from them.) I always believe that a team's identity lives in it's primary logo. One of my goals is to have uniform sets that compliment and use aspects of the logo in order to create a uniform that makes sense. As you will see in my following posts, I will place the teams current jerseys at the top, and my designs underneath. Pretty straightforward. ***For now I will just be doing Home and Away versions because the possibilities are endless for Alternates, so I chose to focus on just two jerseys per team at this time. I will try to adhere to the one pants color / style but that may change. I'm avoiding doing shoulder logos for now until I really get the ball rolling on this concept. -------------------------------------------- BOSTON BRUINS I know most everybody thinks of the Bruins uniform setup as perfect, but I see it as something that personally could be executed better. Not saying that I will accomplish this, but I'll try. 1 - Thickened the logo overall and replaced the black "B" with a gold one. (Both choices where not something I felt was necessary in the grand scheme of this, but I wanted to add a little bit more of a modern feel to my Bruins concept.) 2 - For the striping, I wanted to follow the actual striping and color pattern that is found in the logo, so I made the sleeve and sock stripes the same thickness as in the logo, along with making the stripe yellow with the black trim followed by white. 3 - The thick black collar followed by the gold is meant to mimic the black circle followed by the gold trim on the outside of the logo. 4 - Added the gold stripe at the bottom of the jersey for color balance. -------------------------------------------- WINNIPEG JETS 1 - Overhauled the primary logo and team's colors. I wanted a darker blue to try and bring out the bright blue (left the same). 2 - I'm sure there is significance to the double-strips on the current Jet's uniforms, but in order to follow along with the primary logo, I changed things up. 3 - Not sure if this set seems a little bottom heavy? Especially on the home uniforms... -------------------------------------------- OTTAWA SENATORS VERSION 01: VERSION 02: 1 - Switch from the current primary logo to: "(Alternate Logo 2007/08 - Pres)" as the primary. 2 - New shades of Red and "Gold". 3 - Used a darker shade of red on the Home Jersey, with the brighter red from the logo acting as an accent along with the gold. -------------------------------------------- FLORIDA PANTHERS VERSION 01: VERSION 02: 1 - Modified the primary logo. I felt the "Florida / Panthers" for the current home and away just take too much from the overall look. 2 - Tried to pinch and pull the logo to make the panther feel more "proud" and as if it were standing / sitting taller. 3 - Tried to make the colors a mixture of the teams original red and blue (well a representation of it), along with the tan. -------------------------------------------- COLUMBUS BLUE JACKETS VERSION 01: VERSION 02: 1 - Switch to the alternate cannon logo as the primary. 2 - Removed red from the color scheme and made bright blue a complimentary color to the dark blue. 3 - Couldn't find the exact match for the teams newer (2017) font but I did my best. 4** - I get what everyone is saying about adding red and even though it might make the uniforms pop a little more, I plan to darken the blue for the New York Rangers and I feel that both teams would wind up looking too similar. Columbus loses seniority in this case so that played a huge part in my decision to remove the red. This is especially something I want to avoid with teams in the same division (Boston and Pittsburgh will probably be my only exception due to the long history of both teams.) Red will however, be prominent in the alternate uniforms. I hope everyone gets where I'm coming from here...
  23. 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.
  24. N.B. This post is originally on @sparky chewbarky's thread 'Battle of Seattle'. All the things I post there will be mentioned in my threat. Thank you for reading this. Heyo everyone. FC Macbeth here with another concept. This time concerning with the Seattle expansion in the NHL. While there are some good suggestions and spectacular jersey designs, here is my own version of Seattle's identity and main set. IMHO, Seattle should call itself the 'Emeralds' as a tie in to the city's nickname 'Emerald City'. 'Sockeyes' feels too Minor League Baseball-like, and same goes with 'Kraken' (though it might grow with me later). Meanwhile, aviation-themed names (Aviators, Pilots etc.) are decent enough to be worthy in the NHL and 'Rainiers' has some potential to go well with the fans since it pays tribute to a baseball team. However, for what its worth, I always go for the Emeralds. GO EMS' GO! The main colour choice will be greenish-blue and double green. Y'know, classic Seattle scheme. For the primary logo, I combine two things: The shape of Mount Rainier on the top and the shape of the emerald at the bottom. Inside Mount Rainier, there is a Space Needle and four pine trees from both sides, each representing four influential Seattle hockey franchises; the Metropolitans, the Breakers, the Totems and the Thunderbirds (currently playing). The secondary logo is derived from the emblem from the flag of Seattle stylised with the letters 'S' and 'E' while the alternate logo goes with a simple route. It's just the letter 'E' fused together with the pine tree. Now, here comes the jersey. The striping pattern that I made is entirely random that I made while playing around with the designs. All I did is just make the stripes jagged (perhaps a tribute to the logging industry in Seattle). The font I used is from the Connecticut Whales. Well, I want to give the Ems' a unique identity on its own. As for the NOB, the home jersey is worn by David 'Doc' Maynard who changed the name from Duwamps to Seattle in 1853 as a tribute to Chief Seattle (which the city is named after).The road jersey is worn by Bill Gates who founded Microsoft in 1975. C&C appreciated!
  25. In my desert states Winter Classic concept post, another user here mentioned doing a Florida one. I had remembered seeing this behance gallery for one at Disney world but in my opinion the jerseys in it seemed more appropriate for a Stadium Series instead of a Winter Classic, so I decided to do my own. Yes, I am aware it gets hot in Florida, even in the winter, but like I said in my desert Winter Classic concept, if the NHL could put an outdoor game in Vegas in the 90s, they can do it better now. First the host team: I based the Lightning jersey on the EHL’s Jacksonville/Florida Rockets jersey from 1967/68. Just like the Preds based their Winter Classic jersey this year on the Dixie Flyers jersey from the same era. If you look close, the numbers on their backs were blue for some reason which made them disappear into their stripe a bit. I’ve changed that on my concept, but I think they were able to get away with it because they centered their numbers in the stripe since they didn’t have names on the back. The Rockets also had 8 stars on the front of their jersey, so I half seriously replaced them with lightning bolts in my concept, but they don’t look great to say the least, so I will probably leave them out. I think the stripes need adjusting before I finalize this render with textures and stuff but overall I’m pretty happy with the direction this one is going. And now the visitors: Keeping with the theme, I based the Panthers jersey on the concept for the WHA’s charter member Miami Screaming Eagles, who never took the ice in Miami but were immediately moved to Philly because they couldn’t find an adequate stadium. The Screaming Eagles were the first attempt to bring pro hockey to south Florida, and I think this is a good enough looking jersey to give it another shot to see the ice. Please let me know what you think or where anything can be improved, I’m working on a Winter Classic logo now, and the Wide World of Sports at Disney world seems like the obvious choice for a location, but there may be a better location I’m not thinking of, and that would obviously change the logo.
