Let me start by stating that I did not create this directly for the Toledo Walleye, I created it as just a walleye graphic and thought I'd try it for the them. In this application though I'm not sure if I'd want the white or light blue outline.
I thought I'd try a concept series based on minor league hockey teams in one city. I decided to take the idea of "what if the team never folded" and designed logos and uniforms from there. I decided to start with Toledo, Ohio since I have a lot of connections to the city. The first team I chose was the Toledo Buckeyes. They only existed for one year, but I thought it would be interesting to try designing a logo and uni in the state of Ohio for a team named the Buckeyes, and not use Scarlet and Gray - figuring that Ohio State would issue a cease and desist on anybody using the color scheme and nickname. the research that i did showed that their colors were green and red (looked like they were sponsored by Buckeye Beer), so i started there with my color palette. I tried going with Green and silver (darn close to gray, I know), Let me know your thoughts... Primary Logo Secondary Logo . Home Away Alternate
This is one of those times that the third jersey's idea came first...in this case though, executing said idea took a bit of effort. Home and away... Torso uses diagonal shadow stripes to simulate a pane of glass, a la Toledo's nickname, Glass City. Speaking of which...Third broken glass...oddly enough, this was inspired by a Youtube music video of a song I'd heard on the radio several years ago, and found again a few months ago. Turns out that particular singer is from Toledo, and before the main song starts playing, they got a sound of glass breaking followed by "GLASS CITY! Bring the music!" Yeah, another day of being inspired by weird ish.
