  1. 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!
  2. 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.
  3. Hello Everyone!!... Well, it's WinterClassic time, when the NHL celebrates the outdoor roots of its great game. Several weeks ago, a "polar vortex" drifted down from the north and froze our nuts off for a week or so. The upside to the freeze was that we scored a couple of days of outside shinny on the pond behind us, before warmer temps returned to melt our rink. Man, there's nothing like strappin' on the blades and playing some pond-hockey. The NHL has scored big on its outdoor "WinterClassic". It's HUGELY popular. It's become a New Year's Day bucket-list event and destination. The players appear to enjoy it also. This isn't a concept, per se...it's actually something I put together for my kids. I fleshed-out the idea using mostly images lifted off the net...but the words are all original and all mine. I hope you enjoy it. Have a great New Year's everyone, and enjoy the WinterClassic... sparky
  4. Time for a new concept series! With pretty much every other major sports league (NBA, NFL, MLB) incorporating more elements into teams' uniform identities, it's time for the NHL to catch up with the times and allow teams to wear four different uniform options. The NBA has their "City", "Icon", "Association", and other weirdly named jerseys, so I modeled this series to that. Each team will have a designated "Home" (dark) and "Road" (light) jersey, as well as a "Pride" and "Honor" jersey. The "Pride" uniforms will be inspired by the team's hometown, state, or community. "Honor" jerseys will be direct throwbacks, modernized fauxbacks, or combinations of different eras to pay homage to the history of the hockey (on the "Honor" jerseys, the approximate year that is being brought back to life will be noted in the Player NOB). Let's start off with an Original Six team...The New York Rangers
  5. It's going to be a long season as a Devils fan, so I decided to start doing some concepts in my free time. For the Devils, I just wanted to make a couple fixes to a decent effort and play around with a black third jersey and returning the heritage jersey to the red.
  6. Hello! I just want to start a concept topic about a mashup of logos of the franchises from each city. The result will be a logo for each city (in NY and LA two logos) representing the NBA, NFL, MLB, NHL and MLS teams. So, this is the first one: Los Angeles (part I). -City: Los Angeles -Colours: Los Angeles Lakers colours (purple (#552583 ) and gold (#fdb927) -LA letters from the Los Angeles Lakers jersey logo -Ram head from the Los Angeles Rams logo -'Los Angeles' name from the Los Angeles Dodgers jersey logo -Baseball from the Los Angeles Dodgers logo -Crown from the Los Angeles Kings logo -Shape from the LA Galaxy logo Thank you for your time here.
  7. Last year, there was a lot of discussion about Houston as a new market for the NHL. If the city was to get a team, it would make the most sense to revive the name Aeros after the successful WHA franchise (1972-78) and later AHL franchise (1994-2013). The original Aeros wore blue and powder blue with AEROS diagonally across the front of both jerseys. Today, the team would need to share the Toyota Center with the Rockets, who are historically a red clad team. The arena follows this color scheme having red seats. In order to match the arena, tie into the history of the name, and avoid looking like the division rival Jets, the Aeros are a red team with navy and powder blue secondary colors. These colors also connect to the other professional sports teams in the area as the Texans wear navy and red and the Astros wear orange and navy. The team's primary logo features a roundel with the team name in white with a navy border on a powder blue background with a WWII era plane over a red circle. The secondary logo is a roundel with a star reminiscent of various US military aircraft, but with an A over top of the star. The home uniform features a red jersey with the primary logo on the front, sleeve stripes which an homage to the Texas state flag with the player's number taking the place of the star, and and hem striping which omits the bottom powder blue and navy stripes since the striping is very thick. The helmet is red with AEROS on the side and the pants are navy with one white and one red stripe down the side. The white uniform uses the same striping on the jersey as the red one plus it retains the red shoulders. The alternate uniform is navy and takes aspects of the WHA team's uniforms (AEROS diagonally across the front, sleeve striping from the white, hem striping from the blue), but with red included. NOBs are of players from the WHA franchise: Frank Hughes - Most Goals Larry Lund - Most Assists/Points Gordie Howe I'm really interested to see what people think about this. C&C are greatly appreciated! Might have some updates in the near future.
  8. Post your favorite new masks for the 2019-20 season... Quick's new mask is probably my choice: Jack Campbell's new mask is also fantastic...the Kings have a history of great goalie masks over the last 40 years... Cal Petersen's mask is also quite nice, if mostly understated. The throwback crown in black and silver looks good:
  9. I'm chcarlson23, and I'm looking to start an NHL series here on the boards. I've been designing lots of stuff for a while now, and have even started a few series here on the boards, but never completed any of them. We'll see if I'm able to this time, as I'm pretty busy with school. Anyways, hope you enjoy! I recently saw an older design of mine for the Anaheim Ducks, and decided to update it a little, then add a road sweater. The only thing is that I can't decide if the road needs a black yoke or not. I've included both here. Let me know what you think about that C&C Appreciated!
  10. With the Hurricanes unveiling their new away jersey and now having 3 different distinct looking jerseys I've decided to keep their basic looks but having them keep unified parts. All 3 jerseys keep the tonal storm flag stripes and I add them to the sleeves now. Home Away The home and away keep the primary logo on the front. I normally hate nicknames on hockey jerseys but Canes for some reason kind grows on me. However save that for the alternate the home and away for the primary logo. The stripe widths are now constant and I added the storm flags to the home jersey. Third I move "Canes" to the third jersey because I don't like how the storm flags look on the front of the jersey. I also add the sleeve to the hem to keep consistency and removed the storm grey because it just looked wherever I put it.
  11. Heya, everyone! It is I, FC Macbeth, here with the first concept series done by yours truly! Today, with the first post of the series, let me tell you a story. Alright, end of story. Let's start off this series, shall we? BOSTON BRUINS Let's go retro for this Stanley Cup finalist by going ALL GOLD! In fact, let's pay a tribute to the famous Kraut line that gave them two Stanley cups in 1939 and 1941. My basis of this concept is to create an all-gold look while referencing with the past. In this case, it's the 1939 Jersey in a gold variant. All I did is simply double the stripping.for the original and apply it to the socks. The gold breaches also has a stripe on it, which is something Boston has ACTUALLY DONE from 1958 to 1965. I created two versions of the same design. The one of the left is what the original source material looks like: Numbers on the front and the 'Blocked B' logo placed at where the T.V. numbers are normally placed, creating an illusion that resembled a football jersey. Personally, it's unusual compared to the other ones Boston has design and while it didn't look good in terms of its placement, I think it doesn't hurt to try. The one of the right, however, is just your standard typical placement of the logo and the numbers. Not much to say, really. What do you think, guys? Comments and criticisms are welcome. Just try to be civil, okay?
  12. Around a week ago, the jersey that the Buffalo Sabres will be wearing next year for their 50th season was leaked. I don't think it's great, but it isn't terrible IMO. I tried to fix its issues in this concept. First, I gave it a blue yoke like Buffalo has worn for a long time, and edited to striping so there is no yellow-on-white, and made blue the majority colour. The logo and numbers stay the same. What do you think? C&C is appreciated!
  13. Hi all, I decided to create a series based off the one I did for the NBA, in which I make alternate jerseys for the NHL that combine most (if not all) the team's brand history into one uniform. I thought this would be a cool way of acknowledging team histories while making unique alternate uniforms for each team (excluding Vegas, since they've only had one logo and uniform set, sorry Golden Knights fans...) I hope y'all enjoy and CC is welcome! Starting off with three: Mighty Ducks of Anaheim/Anaheim Ducks 1990s-Mid 2000s: Front logo Mid 2000s-early 2010s: Sleeve styling Early 2010s-present: Shoulder logos, colors Phoenix/Arizona Coyotes: 1990s-early 2000s: General jersey design early 2000s-early 2010s: Shoulder logo Early 2010s-present: Front logo, colors Boston Bruins: 1950s: Color, sleeve design 1960s-80s: Front logo coloring, shoulder design, neck coloring 2000s-present: Front logo design, shoulder logo Going in alphabetical order by city, so that'll be the order.
  14. Well, I made some random hockey concepts today, based on urban graffiti. With the help of some png images and amateur photoshop done on a mobile, I have made these. Use them as wallpapers, or print them out and pin them on your wall, I honestly don’t care. Let’s start with this year’s contenders for Lord Stanley: So, what do you think?
  15. Hi,I decided to draw a few NHL concepts and four uniforms for every NHL team(Home,Road,Alternate and a "City" edition) but some teams had only three uniforms. No changes on the home and away.Their uniforms are classic however,I added new alternate logos on the shoulders. One is a winged Liberty Bell and another one is a winged "F" similar to the classic winged "P". On the alternate, there are few changes. I made the numbers on the sleeves smaller and changed the font from black to orange. The "City" edition features a grey jersey with black shoulders and black and orange striping and the winged Liberty Bell on the crest that represents the city of Philadelphia, well a keystone logo on the black shoulder representing the state's national symbol. I sorry but I can't upload the concepts so I trying to insert them in my phone... I'm new here.
  16. I know that there are a lot of NHL Seattle concepts right now, but I decided to try my hand before my hometown team releases its logo and colors. Here are my takes on six team names that I think are ideal (paired with some poor photos I've taken around town.) First off, the Seattle Totems! The whole thing is a geometric version of the local Salish art style. The secondary logos are a monogram and a Metros S. The alternate uniform combines the major aspects of the '63 WHL white jersey and the '66 green. The font is a modified version of Frostbite Narrow.
  17. Should NHL teams hang a banner if they won their Division in Postseason Play? (Real life example question: Should the 2018-2019 Carolina Hurricanes put a banner for Metro Division Postseason Champions since they represented the Metro in the Eastern Conference Finals)
  18. It's been a few days since I finished the Sabres series, so now I begin the Canucks counterpart...tonight, I mash the style they wore for their first two seasons with the flying skate. The Peyote Coyote skates forth to oppose them, this uniform based on the 1974-75 Phoenix Roadrunners, though repeating the coyote on the shoulders the way the Runners had had their logo ended up looking like crap, so I used the moon instead. Tomorrow is 80s Night, this time out I'll make you squirm a bit, see if you can guess which logo'll be used and who the opponents will be. I'll tell you what though, much like I ended the Sabres series with a heritage set, the Canucks series will end with an interesting take on the Millionaires.
  19. I'm not exactly sure what to call this as it's a bit different from the Unused Logos/Jersey thread. This is forgotten history about team name changes, logo rumors and relocation that never -- that kind of stuff. I bring this up for a couple of reasons and I'll illustrate my point to hopefully set the tone of the thread. I was researching the late '80s NBA expansion of Miami, Orlando, Minnesota and Charlotte and found a few interesting nuggets in this article. I knew about the Charlotte Spirit nickname as it wasn't well received, the I found the Florida Heat nickname bit interesting and pretty much forgotten without having to dig pretty far back into news archives to find the reference. Additionally there was The Athletic article yesterday about the Dallas Mavericks aborted rebranding in the late 90s before Mark Cuban bought the team and branded them with their current look. I also found a few mentions in other articles of the possibilities of the Spurs moving to Miami to accommodate both Expansion bids in Florida, since the NBA was originally set to expand only by three instead of four teams. Anyways, I'd love to discover more lost history in other sport leagues since basketball is what I know best. What do you have?
  20. Back in the autumn of 2016, the remaining Expansion Six all celebrated their 50th anniversaries, and to mark the occasion, I basically did a series split into four parts: the Kings leg, the Blues leg, the Penguins leg and the great North Stars-Seals trainwreck Tonight...we ride again. The Sabres and Canucks turn the big Five-O, and so I am summoned from the scrap heap to commemorate things. As a number of weird things did, we begin in the 70s. The Sabres use their original striping style, but with a slight tweak as I took cues from the white jersey with the differing colorations, and also put the AHL Bisons-inspired Buffalo wordmark to use. The visiting Rangers are in the infamously short-lived 76-78 uniforms, but with the shield from one of their Winter Classic jerseys on the front. The plan is as follows: 80s: vs Bruins (? I'm thinking of going in a different direction, but they're who I have penciled in). The Sabres' crest here will either be the goathead, this past Winter Classic's shoulder logo (in which case this'll be predominantly yellow) or the pre-Edge red jersey's crest. 90s: vs Lightning...I might go with the Buffaslug here. Not sure whether I'll go with their original design or the rain storm jersey for TB. 2K: vs Blue Jackets...honestly...ugh...expectations suck sometimes. Take a wild guess what's coming. 2010s: vs Canadiens...rolling with the Buffalo script template here. I think. Pre-Sabres Heritage: vs Capitals or Penguins Before you ask, there will be a Canucks series too. And yes, there will be flying V.
  21. Decided to have a crack at making my own concepts thread here, see how I can improve and tinker with my design skills and sensibilities. All of my concepts are going to be using the Adizero template made by Steven over on HockeyJerseyConcepts, for clarity's sake; it's my template of choice for hockey jerseys. First up are the Tampa Bay Lightning. I'm sure many of us are not exactly fans of Tampa's current identity, namely the colors and logo, so I decided to revamp the team's identity a bit. My main goal with these jerseys was to try and make the team more visually distinct from Toronto when it comes to color layout. If you have any ideas on how to improve them, feel free to reply and tell me; I'm open to suggestions as to how to tweak these. For sweeping changes, I've gone ahead and replaced the current primary logo with it's previous equivalent; I chose the late-00's logo because it was modern enough to work without being overly simple like the oft-maligned current logo, plus it didn't have the (in my opinion) outdated text style of the original Tampa logo. The secondary logo remains the same as it is currently. For colors; the blue has gone from Toronto-lite to a more vibrant electric blue, tying into the team's name. Black is now the secondary color again, with the top of the jersey being predominantly black with blue and white as accents to firmly set a new chromatic identity for the franchise. Jersey text and numbers are primarily white, with the numbers and front letters having blue and black outlining. Obviously, the away jersey is pretty similar to the home jersey, just with some of the colors flipped about; white replaces blue, blue replaces black, black replaces white. I think it looks pretty nice, though; the added black makes the jersey less monochromatic and the electric blue really pops. The jersey text and numbers are black with blue bordering to keep them easily legible at a distance. The third jersey uses the oh-so-beloved "BOLTS" wordmark on a black jersey. Blue is the secondary color, while white is pushed to a tertiary accent alongside the new addition of a silvery-gray color. The outlines of the numbers and front letter are now silver, as well.
  22. Hi! I've been a longtime reader of CCSLC and I've decided to start posting some of my concepts. I decided to redesign the nhl uniforms for the 2021-2022 season. In this concept I decided to take a page from the NBA and give all 32 teams a third and fourth jersey. Going on with the NBA and soccer, there are no home or away uniforms. They just need to clash (I know this would be tough for equipment managers so my idea is that the away team picks the color so they can just travel with one set) I originally redesigned a few teams logos but in the end I decided I still wanted to keep all the teams with the same general brand they already have or have had. Here's the Atlantic Division: Boston I changed the dark and light to be closer to the Bobby Orr days of the 1960s-70s. The third is a modern take of the B's 1965-67 home uniform. Their 4th jersey pays homage to the first bruins' uniform. Buffalo The dark uniforms are inspired by their heritage third jersey they used to have and the light is their winter classic jersey just with laces. The 4th jersey is in spired by the Buffalo flag. Detroit I keep the dark and light the exact same, the third is a red version of their centennial classic uniforms with the 2014 Winter Classic logo. 4th jersey is inspired by the 1930's away jersey and added the Hockeytown logo. Florida I keep the dark and light the same except for having the same crest on both jerseys, the third is a recolored version of their original navy third jersey. I'll admit this is ripping off the Heat but these are Miami Vice inspired. Montreal The Habs' home jersey is probably my favorite uniform in sports but I've always thought their away jersey was missing something so I added stripes to the sleeves. The third jersey is an inverse of the dark jersey. The 4th jersey is blue to honor the Quebec flag but also honor the Canadiens' history. Ottawa The dark, light and third jerseys are all inspired by the Centennial Classic jerseys which has historical significance to Ottawa. The 4th jersey is the Senators original jerseys. Tampa Bay I added some black to the dark and light. The third jersey is an update to their cup winning uniforms. The 4th jersey are a heathered grey pattern to make a rain storm type pattern. Toronto I make the hem stripe a double stripe to add consistency. The third jersey is inspired by the Arenas throwback and the 4th jersey is inspired by Drake. Thanks so much for viewing and any CC would be appreciated! I'll be posting the Metro soon.
  23. Doodling led to some ideas for a bolder, brighter NHL with more attitude so I figured I'd flesh some out, starting with the Lightning. Not sure how many teams I'll do, but it won't be the whole league, just whatever interesting ideas come to me. Also help me name this series once you get the flavor cause I don't know what the heck to call this thing. Hope you enjoy! Thanks for watching as always!
  24. I've seen this idea get bounced around for a thread and in the wake of the demise of the AAF, I feel now is a good time to discuss how an alternative league can potentially survive (and with a few strokes of luck, even thrive). While I'm focusing on alternatives to the Big 4 sports leagues in North America (NFL, MLB, NBA and NHL) as that is what I know, discussing alternatives to leagues outside of North America is obviously welcome. As for a potential alternative (American) football league, here are a few starters that would help IMO: 1. Have a secure source of funding and be willing to lose tens of millions of dollars to start. 2. Don't try to beat the established leagues right off the bat. After all, you have to prove that you can stick around as the longest lasting league since the NFL-AFL merger was the United Football League. 3. Maintain a smaller staff compared to an NFL team. This is obvious. Keep expenses down as much as possible. 4. Get a TV/streaming contract. Streaming is the next evolution of TV but get a TV contract because not everyone can access Internet fast enough to stream. Clearly this is nowhere near a complete list of steps necessary to establish a foothold in the sports market but it's a start.
  25. What if certain teams/franchises in the NHL never rebranded or moved cities? Many other people have done their own renditions, so I figured I'd throw my hat in the ring too. Starting off, what if the LA Kings never adopted the colors of their then neighbors the LA Raiders? In 1988, at the introductory press conference for Wayne Gretzky no less, the Kings unveiled their brand new logo, jersey, and colors. If they hadn't changed the latter, what would the Great One's jersey have looked like? Rather than just recolor the logo from that era, I took the logo used in promotional materials throughout the '80s and cleaned it up. The speed lines are gone for an overall cleaner look to the KINGS text. The striping pattern on the jersey mimics the outlines of the logo and fits with the aesthetics of the time . Version 1 - Single outlined numbers Version 2 - Double outlined numbers C&C is always appreciated. Tomorrow, the Kings introduce their first alternate jersey!
