  1. 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!
  2. 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.
  3. Well, it's been a long time since I've posted a logo concept on here. Now, I have a semester-long project in my project management class and I chose to put an NBA expansion team in Pittsburgh. The name I chose is the Pittsburgh Peregrines; named after the fastest flying animal on the planet. I am not the best at drawing, so I traced over the picture of the peregrine you will see below. I know right now it looks more like an illustration than a logo, and that's what I need your help with. What can I do to make it look more like Boston College's Eagle or UTSA's Roadrunner? Any help would be appreciated. I will also be posting other alternate logos and uniforms eventually. C&C much appreciated!
  4. This is my first time doing this sort of thing because I don't have a professional art program nor the fact that I can draw either which doesn't help but I happen to like the Madden Expansion Team and hopefully they'll add more locations and uniforms and team names.... oh wait this is EA, nothing will change at all. So the first team I intend to show off is an old favorite of mine over the years, the London Monarchs aka the Royal Gold and Blues... the old school team that may become an actual team someday within the next few years... here's the Home and Away uniforms for said Monarchs plus the Third/Alternate ((No more Color Rush)) variant of said uniform Keeping the helmets as safe can be, the uniforms are combination of Metallic Gold, Royal Blue and Red with White showing off the Away Uniform.. if anything, the third uniform is something I'm proud off because it can be used on the road on certain games or if they're paired up against the Saints or the 49ers. They would have their Home games at the new Northumberland stadium and whilst in America, they use the Scott Stadium in Charlottesville, Virginia as their temporary ground against those that can't adjust to the time difference. Feedback is welcome, I intend to update with the next team...El Diablos of Mexico City
  5. So it seems that it's all but official that the NHL is coming to Seattle. I came up with a couple of ideas for how I would like to see them take the ice. The first is the Seattle Totems and the second is the Seattle Kraken. I decided to use the t-bird totem to link to current junior team since they are not considering Thunderbirds as a name, and I went subtle on the Kraken as opposed to going full on octopus for them. Hope you all like them.
  6. Hey everyone, so recently there was a competition held by the youtube channel Post2Post and the challenge was to create logos for a new NHL expansion team from a somewhat reasonable expansion location. I chose Saskatoon as my location but the team will be named Saskatchewan to try and gain fans from across the area much like the Roughriders. The team is called the Whitetails for the animal of Saskatchewan and the team colors are kelly and forest green with white. With the colors of the Roughriders, University of Saskatchewan, and the Provence of Saskatchewan all having green I decided to use it, along with the fact no team in north american pro sports uses 2 shades of green as their colors so it'd be unique, not another black and red or red white and blue team. The Whitetails main logo is a fierce deer head facing forward to a bright future. There are also two secondary logos, one is the same deer head but with a 'S' in the left side for Saskatchewan, this would be used on the breezers and merchandise mainly. The second is a circle with a 'S' sticking out the top slightly and wheat to its sides, this logo is a modernization of an old Saskatchewan Roughriders logo. Wheat is a big part of this teams identity and it is seen on one logo, the team word mark, and their third jersey. This submission got second place in the competition, let me know what you think!
  7. So I made this chart to show the expansion/logo changes of MLB teams since 1901. I know something similar to this has probably been done before. I figured I'll print this out on 2'X3' paper for myself and hang it on the wall. Just thought I'd share! If y'all have some sort of C&C let me know. I'm going to be making some other ones (different leagues, maybe cities?) over the Summer. (I know creations are typically under the Concept section but this just didn't fit.)
  8. Hello everyone, It's been a while since I've last posted on this site. Glad to stop by and see some new people posting! This is one of the first concepts of done in quite some time and I figured I'd add it to the forum. This was my senior project for my Graphic Design major. The last graphic design class in my college career! In short, we had the whole semester (a little more as we started at the end of last semester) to work on a brand. There were 14 students in the course and we all picked something to brand. Some picked fast food (You can see some of her work on my Behance project page), check the game program), some picked guitar stores, puppy adoption, Positive news stations, but knowing me, I had to do a hockey team. Full project on Behance, feel free to check it out on there or just see some of the images here! Link:
  9. I decided that maybe if the NFL decided to expand i think San Antonio is a good choice so i made a logo and uniforms coming soon I went with the defenders obviously i took aspects of SA life and converged them into a logo CC is welcomed
  10. Hi Guys As I wanted to play to the MyGM mode in NBA 2k17 with an expansion team, I decided to create some logos Feel free to give advices and cristicisms.
  11. Ive always been into making logos for teams in video game systems, it started with custom colleges in the latter years of NCAA Football, and has blossomed into making teams for NBA2K17. Here's my first ones from scratch, i'm very open to suggestions. All done in Photoshop CS6
  12. Hey guys, im bored again so here is what I envision the NFL looking like in the near future....we'll go with 2050. Each division has 1 additional team with some realignments, relocations, and renames. I tried to make it as realistic and not-too-far-out-there as possible. I also list each team in its predicted standings. AFCN -Cleveland Browns -Pittsburgh Steelers -Chicago Wolves -Cincinnati Bengals -Baltimore Ravens AFCS -San Antonio Texans -Houston Oilers -Tennessee Titans -Indianapolis Colts -Jacksonville Jaguars AFCE -London Monarchs -New York Jets -Miami Dolphins -Buffalo Bills -New England Patriots AFCE -Los Angeles Raiders -Kansas City Chiefs -Denver Broncos -San Diego Sharks -Oakland Outlaws NFCN -Minnesota Vikings -Toronto Thunderbirds -Detroit Lions -Chicago Bears -Green Bay Packers NFCS -Tampa Bay Buccaneers -Atlanta Falcons -New Orleans Saints -St Louis Stallions -Carolina Panthers NFCE -Philadelphia Eagles -Washington Redskins -New York Giants -Oklahoma City Storm -Dallas Cowboys NFCW -Los Angeles Rams -San Francisco 49ers -Las Vegas Devils -Arizona Cardinals -Seattle Seahawks Tell me what yall think of the names, cities, standings, etc.
  13. ...A lot of talk lately about an NHL franchise in Vegas, and, although the prospective new owner apparently likes "Black Knights" as a team name, I think that "Aces", with an "air force" spin would be the way to go. Nevada has a rich aviation history with several airfields situated in the state. The largest (Nellis Air Base) is home to the USAF Thunderbirds Team. The Winnipeg Jets gave a nod to the Canadian Air Force with their theme, so why not have Vegas do the same with the USAF. (Imagine the promotional possibilities when these two teams hook up). So I've done up a concept with a logo inspired by this famous American warplane insignia... The barred or winged American star roundel has existed in various forms since 1947 (according to Wickipedia).
  14. We haven't had much talk about the NHL and their expansion/relocation plans lately. I'm not going to let CCSLC tradition go by the boards, so let's toss something out there, shall we? I present to you, @the admiral's third-favorite team to take shots at...the Carolina Hurricanes. Bless their hearts, they try their best. Their owner has been trying to sell the team for a while....firstly as "looking for investors", then selling them as a whole. Their owner's having about as much success at that as the Atlanta Spirit did. From Yahoo's Greg Wyshynski: Hurricanes possibly to be sold to Quebecor or Las Vegas owner, with relocation a possibility. Now, it's been eerily quiet on the expansion front. You would think that a team starting a couple seasons from now, that there would be some discussions or rumors or whatever taking place. Could that quietness be due to getting this Hurricanes situation settled first, whether the team stays in Raleigh or gets moved to either Las Vegas or Quebec City? Then the city(ies) that lose out on the Hurricanes could be granted an expansion franchise. As the article states, it would benefit Las Vegas (from a box office standpoint) to acquire a team that's already established over starting from scratch and having to wade through the lean, early seasons of the expansion team. Quebec City would pay whatever it takes to get a team and can likely tough out the growing pains expansion teams go through without suffering at the gate. The team has a lease through 2024, but we've seen over time that leases aren't much of a restriction if someone can afford to buy it out, which both Quebec City and Las Vegas can afford to do.
  15. Again, hello my friends !!! In my previous blog I dream up on the visual component of NHL teams In this topic, I would like to dream about a possible expansion of the NHL. Imagine how the return of the already known and played before the teams and brand new.
  16. At one point there was talk of another NHL franchise in Texas, based out of Houston. I took that information and created my newest NHL concept, the Houston Galaxy. I chose Galaxy because it still has that space theme, but doesn't steal any names from the sports world in Texas. Its hard to choose a good name when Astros, Rockets, Stars, and Texans are all gone. But I think I found a name that some people would like. I know not everyone will be found of the name. It does sound like a amateur name, but a professional soccer team does have the name, so yeah. The logos are pretty self explanatory. I chose Saturn to put in the logo because it looks cool. And thats what I thought of first. The uniforms are where it gets a little crazy. I love the classic stripes, but I thought I should try something different. For the waist stripes, I made it look like the rings of Saturn, from the logo. On the arms, I added the city skyline into the stripes, also from the primary logo. C&C is much appreciated I did create an alternate logo. Its pretty basic, but I wanted to incorporate the space shuttle into the design. I'm thinking, when I create the alternate jersey, I'll put horizontal stripes on the chest under the shuttle, but I have not created the uniform yet.
  17. This is my second NHL concept in the last 2 days. This time I went to a place that is very unlikely to get an NHL team. I recently took a trip to the Yukon this summer and I decided to create a team based out of Whitehorse, but representing all of the Yukon. Therefore, I created the Yukon Explorers. The name comes from all the hiking trails and nature within the Yukon, as well as its connection to the gold rush, with explorers coming out to search for gold. The primary is pretty simple with mountains representing the mountains, of course. The pickaxes represent the gold rush, and the star represents its location in Canada's north. If you look closely in the mountains, the middle snow patch is actually the shape of the Yukon. Pretty clever eh? The alternate is simple the Yukon outline with a pickaxe, and a star giving the location of Whitehorse, Yukon's capital. The colour scheme doesn't necessarily have anything to do with the Yukon, but I thought it looked really good. C&C is appreciated. Without further ado:
  18. My newest NHL Expansion concept is a truly unique name, at least to the best of my knowledge it is. I wanted to make a Portland team and upon researching Portland, I saw that some of the first inhabitants of the area were the Cascade Indians. So was created the Portland Cascades. The primary logo is a C with waterfalls, or cascades, streaming down. I know it may be a little busy, but I freehanded the waterfalls, so it won't be perfect. I wanted to incorporate the native part of the name so with the alternate, I created an arrowhead with rivers running through it. The rivers form the shape of a rose, to represent Portland as the Rose City. The team colours are based from the Portland flag. The green and yellow are primary, while the blue is kind of an accent colour, plus, the water is blue. Good C&C is appreciated. Just saying, this is my first completely original concepts. I freehanded the waterfalls and rivers and arrowhead, so if its not perfect, its because I'm not the best at drawing. Also, just in case TRoyConcepts, I think is his username, shows up, this concept isn't for real use. It's purely for myself and whoever wants to look at it.
  19. Las Vegas Announced 6 possible team names that they will let fans vote on. Silver BUllets was not included so I had to create a new concept for the team. I chose scorpions. Here it is: Jerseys will come soon after I get some feedback
  20. My newest NHL expansion is probably an unlikely place to ever get an NHL team. I created the Halifax Schooners. While it may seem like a strange name, it's completely original (to my knowledge). The name is based off of the Bluenose, the schooner (ship) that appears on the Canadian dime. I was looking to have a nautical theme for this concept and I was pleased to discover that the Bluenose was built and sailed in Nova Scotia. What luck! All 3 logos are pretty self explanatory, the bluenose as the primary, an anchor for the alternate, and a compass as the shoulder logo. I should explain a few things though. In the anchor logo, I tried to create an H in the anchor, as well as an S in the rope. With the uniforms, the home and away were created with a generic ship captain uniform. I thought it looked great and it's unique. As for the colours, I'm thinking people will compare it to the Milwaukee Admirals of the AHL, and I can see why. I didn't realize the colours were so close until I was creating the alternate uniform, but I think the concept is unique enough to distance from the Admirals. There's not too many completely unique colour schemes that look good for a professional team. That should be all for my explanation. C&C is appreciated.
  21. With my newest NHL Expansion concept, I remade the Quebec Nordiques. I feel if Quebec is awarded an NHL team, the name Nordiques should return. With that, I don't think the logo should change much either. It's already a good looking logo. So, I decided the best way to not anger Nordiques fans, but still change the logo a bit, I simply put it in a roundel and added a darker blue to the colour scheme. I attempted to add an updated husky as an alternate but it just doesn't work, plus the fleur de lis works well as a shoulder logo. The alternate jersey is basically the old Nordiques uniform with a shoulder yoke (I think thats what its called). The logo on the alternate is also the regular logo, just with my darker blue added in. I feel that there isn't much to change with the Nordiques besides the plain uniforms, and maybe adding a bit to the logo. Hope Quebec fans like my concept. C&C appreciated.
  22. With the possibility of Las vegas receiving an NHL franchise I came up with a few possible team logos depending on whatever they are gonna call this team. Black Knights doesn't seem like a great name in my opinion, and the NHL might no like a team with a name that is based off of gambling so even though "The Aces" may be the best option, I decided to avoid it and other gambling related names, also because many concepts for Aces have been done already. The "Bighorns" was also an option as the Bighorn sheep is the Nevada state animal but a minor league basketball team in Reno already has the name and a few concepts for that have been done as well. Here are the names of teams that I thought could be a possibility and didn't sound too terribly cliche. 1. The Nukes The Nukes pays homage to the nuclear testing that occurred north of Las Vegas during the 40s-60s Sometimes the mushroom clouds could be scene from downtown. Black Knight color scheme of black gold and silver. 2. The Silver Rattlers/Sidewinders This could be either two teams "The Sidewinders" which is a snake native to the las vegas desert, or "Silver Rattlers" as a nod to the silver mining industry. 3. The Sidewinders Another version for the Sidewinders name. 4. The Neons Nothing says Las Vegas like the flashing neon lights of the strip. Three hockey pucks line the bottom. 5. The Silver Bullets This one could carry some controversy to it due to "bullets" what do you think? 5. The Mustangs A personal favorite of mine. Nevada is home to more than half of North Americas wild horse population and can be found from southern to northern Nevada. I'll probably make more logos for other possible names and other versions in the future but for now feedback on these is much appreciated. Also let me know if you'd like to see Jerseys of these.
  23. This is my second attempt at creating a Las Vegas expansion concept. Just after finishing my Aces concept, it was released that Las Vegas was applying for expansion with the name Black Knights. So I decided to redo my concepts with the new Las Vegas Black Knights. I kept the colour scheme pretty similar with a darker red. When I do make the jerseys, the grey may or may not be used, just to keep the amount of colours down. The knight is, of course, the primary while the sword Vegas star is the alternate. I did get most of the ideas for the alternate from another concept I saw online. I flipped the sword the other way and did a couple things different, but I liked the idea too much to do a different logo. I plan on making the uniforms soon, as I only had time to create the logos and some iPhone and computer wallpaper. Good C&C is appreciated I should say, I am not a very experienced concept creator, just a class in high school and general knowledge of logos along with my creativity, so please don't be too harsh with the comments Again, any help with putting the direct pictures up would be awesome.
  24. I created this Las Vegas NHL Expansion concept before I heard the news that Las Vegas is going for the name Black Knights. I had a better idea for Aces anyway. I got the idea for the primary logo from a different concept I saw, but I added the Vegas star into the spade. I'm more proud of the logos then the uniforms, so any C&C on it, especially the jerseys, would be appreciated. Thanks. Also, all the help I have received for posting the direct picture has not been too helpful. I'm working on a Macbook, and the site claims that the image extension isn't supported. If someone could help with that, that would be awesome.
