  1. I searched the forums & didn't see anything like this. But as I was doing some research on my Heisman project, I was watching some old college football highlights. And it got me thinking how much I loved the 2007 season, so I thought about a thread like this. You can put your favorite season from any sport, or 1 year specifically. & please list your reasons. Here are mine: College Football / 2007: - Incredible upsets like Appalachian State over Michigan, Stanford over USC, Kentucky over South Carolina, Colorado over Oklahoma - Tebow going nuts all over the place - Mizzou had their best season of my lifetime, reaching #1 in the rankings, and beating #1 Kansas who was 11-0 in the last game of the season > Chase Daniel is a Heisman Finalist > they had 3 first-team All-Americans - All the amazing QuarterBacks like Tebow, Dennis Dixon, Graham Harrell, Colt McCoy, Chase Daniel, Colt Brennan, Matt Ryan, Pat White, Sam Bradford - Darren McFadden running over everyone & everything - << highlights - USC honors fallen teammate >> - The Greatest Bowl game of all time, the 2007 Fiesta Bowl, Oklahoma vs. Boise State > Highlights > This - Virginia Tech winning the game after their school shooting >> NFL / 2007: - I couldn't really pick one I liked the best, but this is my favorite Super Bowl of all time. Because the Giants were huge underdogs, and I hate the Patriots. What a game. MLB / 2011: - The Cardinals were 11 games out of the playoffs, & they made it in on the last game of the season. That story line, that eventually became the Greatest World Series game of all time (IMO), and a World Series win makes it my favorite. > We'll see you tomorrow night (goosebumps) College Basketball / 2010: - single-handidly because of this shot. I hated Kansas, but I always root for the underdogs & this was incredible NHL / 2014? - I'm pretty indifferent to the NHL, but I followed it a lot more this year, & I loved the playoffs
  2. I was making this for the (HJC) Open and I thought I would share it on here. I would love feedback.
  3. Wayne Gretzky has joined a group of investors hoping to bring a National Hockey League team to Seattle, The Post has learned. The Gretzky group is one of three looking to bring an NHL franchise to the home of Starbucks, sources said — but each faces an uphill battle in that league Commissioner Gary Bettman has not said the league is ready to expand. Things could get interesting...
  4. thought id share my pitch for the fantasy league over on icethetics, Hawaii honu (sea turtles). done a bit of tweaking since i posted it on dribble (mostly changes to curves and line weights), pretty happy with how it ended up. the turtles natural texture had a cracked magma feel to me, which i think ties in with the Hawaiian theme. I chose this particular colour scheme to emphasize that and go with something wasn't just your typical blue and green approach. The word mark i decided to keep simple and modern again shying away from the cliche tropical look. any last suggestions before i turn it in? I'm also looking for ideas for a secondary logo, so far volcano is at the top of my list but ideas would be great
  5. Hi All, As some of you may know, I have been working on an NHL redesign in another thread. I am halfway through that project (and facing a little bit of a creative block), so I figured I would take a short break from creating jersey concepts and work on something else. I have every intention of finishing my CCM project over the course of the next few weeks, so don't worry, more will be posted over there. I have had this idea lingering in my head for a while now and I finally got around to making it come to life. Personally, I am not a big fan of the logo the NHL decided to stick with for the ASG in Columbus for 2015. The lockout season was the perfect chance for them to scrap it and create another one, but they decided against it. So I am dedicating this thread to refining the main logo, wordmarks/secondary marks, as well as new uniforms. There will be three parts to this miniseries, 1. Main Mark, 2. Secondary and Wordmarks, and 3. Uniforms. To start everything off, here is the main mark. I will take everyone's C&C and edit it as I go before I move on to the next part (please excuse the graininess of the picture, it serves as a watermark). I took inspiration of the shape of the star and flag from a concept by Tyler Rodgers (dgnmrwrw on the boards), so credit to him for the general shape of the logo.
  6. I've never really been a fan of the Phoenix Arizona Coyotes, mostly due to their location. I never thought that hockey could work in the desert, and it appears as though my thoughts were correct. Anyways, there has been one thing I've always liked about the Coyotes - their logos. I thought their original logo was different, but in a good way. It was unique. When they changed their logo 11 years ago, I was sad to see the old one go, but I quickly began to like their new (now current) logo. With the team recently releasing their unused logos that were designed during the design process of their current logo, I decided to make a concept out of one of those logos. I decided to go with their original color scheme, I thought it would fit the logo better. C&C are very welcome!
  7. Is anyone else thinking of doing's Bracket challenge? I was thinking it would be fun for the boards to all get together and create a group--see who's the best playoff predictor in the CCSLC. Thoughts? Would any be interested?
  8. My friends and I hold a yearly street hockey league (I am the owner) and we upload our games onto YouTube. I usually run all of the video and graphics myself but it can be a bit of a hassle for me. I was wondering if anyone would be interested to create some NHL motion graphics for us. If you can, I would need to be allowed to use them and I will give you full credit in the video. Our next game is TBL@BOS and we are the "Pittsburgh Street Hockey League" on YouTube.
  9. Hey Guys! As a Penguins fan, it was a shock to hear about new sweaters with the classic gold, so here is what we thought it could look like. Hope you like this one! C&C Welcome! The away jerseys are the same as home but the black and white are swapped.
  10. I will give advice and also ask for advice but now how would I make this logo look better
  11. Hey Guys! I know everyone is doing Seattle concepts and this our Take on it. We were thinking of the Metropolitans for the team name. We will add other fun seattle concepts on here later. Hope you like it! C&C Welcome!
  12. Alright, I said I'd get the NHL Edition up this weekend, and here it is (moderators, please merge Morgo's unofficial thread underneath this title. He's been flagged with a 5-yard penalty for false-start)! Just as before, I made a "chart" of what I think every single NHL team's best look is, that they've ever had, (with a few exceptions). I invite you guys to post your own complete league breakdown of your favorite looks for each team. After a few days, I will move on to Major League Baseball. As always, here are the rules: If the team has moved, you cannot use their prior location (I'm suspending this rule for the NHL-only because I know if I don't let everyone put the North Stars, Nordiques, or Whalers on here, they'll throw a fit). This is only for a team's best overall look. It's not organized by my "favorite player." In fact, I don't care what players are on here. In some cases you'll find a team's icon used as the photo because that would likely be the most abundant photo found on Google. If I put a team's white uniform up, and you prefer the darker version of the same era, that's fine. That's not something I'm going to change on here. The idea is simply to get the best uniform combo that any specific team has worn for at least one season. There are some teams that have, more or less, never changed their uniforms (i.e. Red Wings, Blackhawks, and Canadiens), and in that case, you can put any incarnation of their uniform that you want. One special rule for the NHL, when it comes to the Winnipeg Jets, you may use any incarnation of the team! People in Winnipeg think of the new Jets and the old Jets as connected, so for uniform purposes, we will do the same here! I think, overall, you'll find I prefer bright/vibrant colors, a traditional look, and uniforms that stand out. I'm not as worried about how they look if fans were to buy them as fashion accessories. Feel free to comment on my list, and make your own lists...AND PLEASE USE PHOTOS (each of mine is about 300x400 pixels)! When it comes to the Toronto Maple Leafs, I feel like they always have it really good, but never GREAT! Have they ever had a uniform where they had what Doug Gilmour is wearing above, but they had the font/numbers from the jerseys that had the "TM" on the shoulders?
  13. With the Pens bringing out a new alternate jersey next year, I decided to take a stab at what I'd like to see. The "robo-penguin" logo was unique. It deserved more love. I feel the logo works well with this design. Let me know what you think.
  14. What's up everybody, I've been working on this new series lately, and have gotten half-way done with the entire league at the moment, so I figured why not start posting a few concepts at a time. With this series, I had a few goals and ideas that I wanted to fulfill. Firstly, I believe the NHL needs more color, diversity and creativity (not the stupid kind of creativity that we see from Reebok). Some teams (i.e. the Hurricanes) look bland and uninspired. Taking into consideration what each team is currently wearing today, I wanted to create an alternate uniform that would fit well with the two primaries, look good on the ice, and build off of each team's branding. First off, we have.... Anaheim Ducks (1/30) Buffalo Sabres (2/30) Carolina Hurricanes (3/30) Any comments or criticism is always welcomed. I can take requests for teams to do in order, but I may have already finished them! Fire away
  15. The oilers already have a "gear" based logo and this is just another fun idea! Hope you like it! C&C Welcome!
  16. I'll just put it bluntly. The current Colorado Avalanche jerseys are aggressively bland. And that's the best thing I can say about em. As I frequently say though, I'd post the originals that should never have been dumped, but that wouldn't be much of a concept. So after taking a bit of a break, I have returned. Home & Away...figured I'd incorporate a Colorado flag-based motif...and these mountains are taken from the state seal. Third...the logical conclusion.
  17. I'm working on another What-If series (it's been a loooooooooong time since I've done one) like my Ottawa Senators and Montreal Maroons series, and I'm at a loss for ideas. I'm all about thorough research and realism, so I want to do this right. So I'm coming for help so I can complete the series before I post. The idea is this: What if more WHA teams joined the NHL in the 1979 merger? Birmingham, Houston, Indianapolis, Cincinnati join the NHL. Birmingham Bulls join the NHL, so the Atlanta Flames last a few years longer with the regional rivalry. Instead of Atlanta moving to Calgary in 1980, the Birmingham Bulls move to Calgary in 1982. Atlanta still doesn't survive, and they move to become the Florida Flames in 1984. That alternate path is done. Houston Aeros join the NHL, see the success that Dallas did but years earlier. However, the Minnesota North Stars wouldn't move to Texas if the Aeros are already there, so in 1993 they move to San Jose to revive the Seals (the Seals WERE merged with the North Stars and technically the Sharks are the descendants of the Seals, so why not make it official?). I'm working on this. Colorado Rockies still move to New Jersey. Winnipeg Jets still move to Phoenix. Quebec Nordiques still move to Colorado. Hartford Whalers still move to Carolina. Anaheim Ducks, Ottawa Senators, and Minnesota Wild still become expansion teams. Tampa Bay Lightning, Florida Panthers, Columbus Blue Jackets, San Jose Sharks, Atlanta Thrashers/Winnipeg Jets 2 never exist. Now, here are the real questions: The Indianapolis Racers survive a very short time before moving to Nashville. I'm all ears for naming suggestions, but a racing theme is something I want to keep. Anybody have info on other possible team names that the Predators rejected? The biggest problem I'm having is this: The Cincinnati Stingers had numerous WHA attendance records and did well. I think they would have survived and taken the Blue Jackets' place. However, they looked exactly like the Bruins did, and with the Bruins losing the argument with Pittsburgh over the Black and Gold color scheme, they won't let it happen again. One of the conditions of Cincinnati joining the league is for a change of color scheme and jerseys. What colors make sense for the Stingers other than black and gold? Any thoughts on if that logo would change much over time? And I have two spots for expansion teams. Would the NHL simply expand to Winnipeg, or should they follow the Thrashers/Jets model? Columbus didn't happen because Cincinnati has a team. Where should that franchise go? I realize there are no concept here, yet. But I am hoping with some ideas, direction, and inspiration, I can make some great ones.
  18. Memorial Patches is one of my favorite parts of the uniform. Early patches were crepes and armbands. In 1973,The Pittsburgh Pirates created the standard when they had a patch commentating Roberto Clemente who died in a plane crash in 1972. Please share your favorite patches!
  19. Hey guys, this was just a fun idea we had. To make an interesting logo for the Nordiques, while making it look modern. The Nordiques always had a light blue, so we went with a dark blue with a Carolina blue accent. Hope you like it! C&C Welcome!
  20. I am starting a thread for logos in sports that are really cool but are not commonly viewed as such. You people can post anything you think belongs here. I will not be posting Basketball but if you want to, That's Fine. (I just don't follow that kind of stuff.
  21. I decided to go and update some defunct team uniforms, just to see what the feedback would be. Up first is the Atlanta Thrashers:
  22. Hey guys, I have been taking somewhat of a break from my third jersey series that I have been working on over the past couple months (mainly bc of school and work), but recently, I decided I wanted to give Illustrator a shot. I've never really used the program much before - really only to draw a couple logos, etc. - so this is my first ever jersey concept done in Illustrator. If I could get some C&C on this and also any helpful tips, it would be much appreciated! Thanks guys, and don't worry, the last three teams in my Third Jersey Series will be finished sometime in the near future!
  23. Hey guys! This is my first post on the forums. I've been making concepts for about four years and thought it was time to throw myself to the sharks! lol... Here, I tried mixing the original Coyotes uniforms with their current set.
  24. This Columbus BlueJacket redesign was inspired by the way teams in the NHL are switching to simple jerseys. Some may say that the Columbus jersey is simple enough now, but i thought i can give it a shot. I kept the same stripes but instead of horizontal the stripes are going vertical. Go easy ha. C&C Welcome! If you like these, go ahead and name other teams that i can make a simple jersey for.
  25. Hey guys I decided to combine two eras of Chicago Blackhawks alternate jerseys and came up with this concept. It combines the stripe pattern of the 2000s alternate and the colours and horizontal stripe behind the logo of the Winter Classic jersey that the Hawks rocked for a few seasons after. This was actually the winning design of 3 that I had made. I uploaded all three onto YouTube and had the viewers vote on the concepts. This won by a landslide. Leave me some feedback for next time, I always appreciate that.
