Hey guys, some of you may remember my British Elite Ice Hockey League cleanup thread and I mentioned I wanted to tackle most of Europe, well, here it is. I will keep the British league thread separate and will use this one for the rest of Europe. Now I don't have a final set goal as of yet, however, I will approach the top teams of each league and give them a clean up or even a redesign. The teams are mostly those involved with the Champions Hockey League that is about to finish its first season. Basically its a soccer style tournament where the top teams or certain leagues get to play in that league so I'm taking the teams involved in the CHL as well as other teams floating at the top that may alternate in their respective national league and the CHL. The first league I started working on is the National League A in Switzerland. The format of my posts will be a little different. I will show a collage with pictures of what the team looks like or has looked like for some reference, with the refreshed/new logo in the centre followed by the jerseys. I have made some rules for myself: No sponsors will be present on my designs, however realistically speaking, the sponsors will only be present on the pants as well as one sponsor on the helmet and 2 on the socks. Home and Away Helmets and Pants will be the same to reduce on money spent on equipment. Teams are allowed to have another helmet and/or pants for their Alternate and/or Throwback as the team is financially responsible. Each team is allowed one Alternate and one Throwback, in other words a team can have 2-4 jerseys. Fauxbacks are considered Alternates. Home must be a solid colour - preferably dark - away jerseys may be white, cream, tan, yellow or gray. The flag of the country the player represents in International Hockey is worn over the heart of each jersey, instead of the back - yes these are real players - and the Captaincy patch will be worn on the right side instead of traditional left. Jerseys are made by CCM because Canada.... yep, no other real reason for that haha. The national league logo if present in the collar of each jersey similar to NHL. National League A: SC Bern HC Davos ZSC Lions EV Zug HC Lugano Geneve-Servette Lausanne HC Others tbd Most Fonts were from Conrad at http://fontsbyconrad.wordpress.com/
The current Swiss logo isn't too great. Switzerland's flag and symbol are so very simple, and the crest is very much the opposite of simple. I wanted to make a new crest that was as simple as it gets while still representing Switzerland. Bonus jersey concept:
