  1. With Nike having recently released the Royals' City Connect uniform, there are now 10 MLB teams with designs under this special range. However, Nike seem to be taking their time with the releases, and the Mariners are still not in the horizon. Therefore, I decided make a concept design for the M's: As you can see, the design is clearly inspired by the Psychedelic Rock poster style from the 60's. This take might not be new, since last season the Sounders released an away kit also inspired by Jimi Hendrix, but I think it's such an unique theme which could set the design apart from the other teams'. I combined the psychedelic style with the city nickname: "Emerald City". Since that name comes from the nature which surrounds Seattle, I went for lime green and volt yellow, which are inspired by the look of Seattle outskirts in Autumn, when leaves turn from green into yellow, under the aforementioned approach. To complete the jersey, I also added the city seal as sleeve patch, and "EC" as jocktag. Here's a simple moodboard which sums up the inspirations behind the design: Props to @AusGiant, whose SVG version of Nike's MLB base I used to create a Paint template. I hope you all like it! Feedback is more than welcome.
  2. Hey everyone, haven't use these boards in a while but wanted some feedback on some concepts I've been working on. I've finished 4 potential names for the new Seattle team and wanted to see what everyone thinks. I also would like to know what other names I should tackle as well as seeing what other names people think are realistic for the owners to choose. 1. Seattle Kraken This name probably won't be used, but it's the first logo I made for the team, so I've been working on it for while and still wanted to share. 2. Seattle Sockeye I think this is the most realistic name for the team, It's well liked by most people. My issue is do the people of Seattle want a fish as their mascot? 3. Seattle Totems One of my favourite logos I've made in while. The problem with this name is people will and have called it cultural appropriation. Nonetheless, could be a cool brand IMO. 4. Seattle Sasquatch I've always liked this name, it's unique, and can make for a cool logo. Notice I've added mount Rainier in the logo. I think this name is probably a long shot but who knows. 5. Seattle Pilots Next up is a concept for the Pilots, a name with some ties and history to the city. It was used for an old baseball team, hence why I was inspired to do a script logo. People probably won't like that, but I'm trying to be creative and different from the rest of the NHL. I also made a primary logo (lines need a bit of cleaning up, but I don't want to spend too much time on this name), which is a propellor in the shape of an S. The name is again a long-shot, but one of my favourites and sounds like an NHL name. The problem is that it is very similar to JETS, and again ties more to baseball history than hockey. Thanks in advance!
  3. In honor of my hometown team's 4th WNBA championship, here's my take on the Seattle Storm! The current primary logo is a bit busy, so mostly this is a cleanup. The Space Needle gets a new, less abstract silhouette, while the wordmark is flattened and simplified. The alternate logos include a version of the current secondary mark, reworked into a raincloud, as well as a Space Needle + Mt Rainier logo and a evergreen tree + lightning bolt logo. The font is Mesmerize. I know the WNBA is currently a templated, ad-covered mess in terms of uniform design right now, but we can dream, right? The two main jerseys have a raincloud-patterned side panel, and a similar Mount Rainier design on the shorts. The wordmarks are simplified versions of the Storm's original designs. The colors are limited to the green, silver, and white for an overcast aesthetic. The alternate jersey is my attempt to adapt the 2018/2020 championship uniform into this set. Please let me know what you think! Go Storm!
  4. I've been really impressed by the Seattle Kraken's identity despite the name, so I decided to try my hand at a Metropolitans-inspired Kraken jersey. The striping pattern is based off of the logo, including the tentacle. Thoughts? C&C is appreciated!
  5. This isn't necessarily for next season, but here are renderings for a renovated Key Arena, one from each group vying to be the ones to make the changes. This would most likely give Seattle (according to their estimates) a team by 2020. .
  6. Well, no time like the present. With the forthcoming announcement of the Seattle NHL's identity, I thought it time to post what I had done, actually as a school project and now probably going to be the letterhead of my design portfolio. I was inspired by the history of airplanes as well as Boeing being founded in Seattle, along with the Museum of Flight in Seattle (awesome place, if you haven't been and have the chance, I would highly recommend). I do acknowledge the fact that the Milwaukee Brewers do own the copyright to the MLB Seattle Pilots, but for a concept, I ran with it. I loved the idea of a double green for the base of the color scheme. I wasn't sure about a tertiary color other than white, and with the Sonics still not back in town, I felt yellow would be a welcome addition. The primary logo was designed around the idea of pilots wings. Secondary logo is the Space Needle with the viewing deck(?) replaced with the same style wings as the primary logo. Wordmark is a block font with the wings on the ends of the P and the S, with Seattle just above it. I wasn't crazy about the roundel logo, but my professor felt there needed to be another logo, so this was something I whipped up rather quickly to beat the due date. So fun fact, these jerseys were actually what my NHL 19 expansion dynasty wore and it made things somewhat easy building the rest of the identity (hence Marner and MacKinnon being the jersey models). I can't explain why I used the Senators Centennial Classic jerseys, but I fell in love with the style and the colors. Went with the primary logo on the chest, Space Needle on the shoulders. For the font, I went with a blocky, almost current Jags style number font. Also, came up with an inaugural patch. Again, not crazy about it, but I think it's simple and gets the point across. Went ahead and imagined the expansion with an alternate jersey ahead of time. The roundel I'm not psyched about becomes the only real logo for this set. Yellow is dropped in favor of grey, with the exception of on the Inaugural Patch season. The striping changes a little bit with the dark green flanking a thin stripe of light green. C&C welcome!
  7. Watching the Seahawks in the playoffs this year, I've decided that I really like their color scheme. Even the neon green looks good in some applications. In particular, it was Pete Carroll's hoodie. And the way the colors work in light. But the logo itself doesn't work for me at all. It's bland and boring, and the gray and white blend together at distance. The original version of this logo was a lot better, with the second shade of blue. But when it was re-colored in 2012, I think they fumbled. Just not enough contrast. I got to thinking what the logo would look like with more green. Not necessarily one-color green, like Pete's jacket above, but just a little more. So I gave the lower stripe back its verdant beauty, and replaced the white for their silver/gray for good measure. Not an earth-shattering change, but to my eye, this works a lot better, and fits better with their history to boot. Your thoughts?
  8. 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!
  9. I know, it's yet another Seattle concept... What can I say, I get excited! Here's my take on the return of the Sonics: For some reason, the Sonics only ever had one logo with a plane, and even so it was ridiculously small. Here, it's front and center! The primary logo has a motion line around the Space Needle, influenced by the campy '90s logo. The secondary logo is my modernization of the classic skyline logo. The font is modified Daggersquare. The two main jerseys sport the Sonics' traditional curved stripe + wordmark. The side paneling has a sound wave pattern. The city jersey is inspired by Seattle's aviation history. I think Seattle's "Jet City" nickname would be an apt Sonics response to "Rip City," "Buzz City," etc. The color is from Seattle's flag, with a cloudy sky pattern for the side paneling. Finally, to add some retro yellow to the set, the throwback is the beautiful 1971 jersey. Let me know what you think! I'll post my court designs soon. EDIT 10-27: Added a logo update. Original versions here.
  10. The Associated Press is reporting that the NHL Board of Governors has unanimously approved granting an expansion franchise to Seattle, Washington. The team - the NHL's 32nd - will begin play with commencement of the league's 2021-2022 season. NHL adds Seattle as league's 32nd team, play begins in 2021
  11. I've been out of the concept game for a while but my creative juices got going again so this was the first concept I put together in at least 4 years. As this is my first concept in a while I didn't want to frustrate myself making a logo or coming up with a name. So I came up with this diagonal text idea. I used a modernized classic font which I think looks pretty sharp. My original inspiration was the rugby-like horizontal stripes of the old Metropolitans jersey. But in attempt to give the jersey a modern look, I only used a two stripe pattern on the sleeves, hem, and the shoulders. I originally put together a green, red, and white palette, but that looked too much like Christmas so I switched to red, blue, and white. As I said, this was my first concept in a very long time, so forgive me as I am probably still dusting off the cobwebs. I am always open to constructive criticism so if you have any thoughts, I would love to hear them.
  12. I've been working on some ideas lately surrounding the name and logo for the future NHL team in Seattle and I wanted to share them here. I have shared these with the @SeattleSinBin Twitter account and he has posted them to get feedback from Seattle hockey fans. The response has been mixed, with many people seeming to like the logos, but not responding favorably to the color schemes for either concept (too similar to the Portland Timbers and OKC Thunder for many people's liking). I've always felt that the Seattle navy & neon green color scheme would be great for continuity's sake with the Seahawks and Sounders, but not so great for the sake of originality or differentiating ourselves from the blue & green color palette already being used by the Vancouver Canucks. Here are the concepts: Seattle Pilots Seattle Breakers I have a couple other ideas for logos that I plan on exploring for Steelheads and Kraken, and I'll see if I can come up with some other options that are a little more unique to the standard list of names being mentioned for the future NHL team.
  13. I’m doing a projekt where I redesign or rebrand old NBA All-Star logos. In a Wayne how I wish eget would look:) Let me know what you think
  14. Hey everyone, I'm back with another design I need some CC on. I thought it'd be fun to challenge myself to make something new, so I thought I'd try my hand at making a Sockeye Salmon logo as like a Seattle NHL team concept thing. Anyways, here is what I have so far, I based it off of the walleye logo I had made earlier this year and tried to kinda combine that with pictures of Sockeye Salmon I found online. Let me know what you think, CC is appreciated!
  15. Here you have some ideas I developed. They are not your usual Seattle logos and color schemes (maybe not exactly the Tritons...). Hope you enjoy my work, maybe I stretched out too far from the traditional path, let me know.

  17. So, with all of the hubbub around the NHL expansion to Seattle, Washington, I was inspired to whip up a set of concept logos for the new hockey club. Frankly, I'm in love with the Sockeyes as the name for the new team. It's fun, local, unique and lends itself to some great color schemes and imagery. Here are some of the images I took some inspiration from as I was designing my logos. I played around with a few color schemes, all of which focused on the distinctive red and green of the spawning Sockeye Salmon. I tried black, and dark green as the third color, but eventually settled on navy blue as the complimentary color to red and green because Seattle sports teams are kinda known for their use of navy blue and more importantly, I thought it looked the best. Color Scheme (with goofy marketing-speak color names): The primary logo I created features a swimming salmon, its powerful tail propelling it upstream, with its intimidating teeth on display: The alternate logo/shouder patch is the letter S dressed up as a sockeye salmon. I was inspired by Native American-style illustrations in the design of the alternate logo, albeit a heavily simplified and stylized version: That's it for now. Thanks for having a look and please feel free to offer C&C because this is far from a finished product. Thanks again.
  18. I used a template for the base of the court from here: http://boards.sportslogos.net/topic/86113-basketball-court-psd/ i would have made the border lines yellow but how the template was made didn’t allow me to do so. So basically all I did was take the old Sonics logo and repainted it and removed the red and kept it two colors (excluding the white line) I also put the two S logos one on each side two symbolize the word super and sonic. And clearly I also added the space needle in the middle which I wanted to make it wood stain but it just didn’t work out with how much colored paint was used on the court so I made it a solid green. I tried making it both modern and old school with the old logo and the latest circle logos combined and also making the middle design abnormally big and removing any gradient for solid colors. (I would feel bad for anyone sitting on the opposite side of the court tho) tldr: combined the “present” and past. Past: old logo, enlarged design, excessive paint Modern: “present” Sonics logo, solid colors, keeping it two main colors
  19. Couple of months ago a designer posted a topic called "Battle of Seattle" and in my opinion the work was excellent. It was so good in fact the new Seattle NHL Franchise should pick one of those logos for what ever team name they decide to go with. With that being said I did want to share my ideas for the Krakens and Seals. To be honest I've been sitting on these for a while and I have been unsure to share them or not. Now by no means are these ready to go but always appreciate feedback and helpful hints to make my work better. I am looking to grow and get better so I find this forum helpful in that because there are many good designers on here with some excellent ideas. Thank you in advance! Seals Version 1 To me it is a logo that looks like it belongs in soccer. I have not discovered an idea to make it more of a hockey look. Seals Version 2 (Alt. Logo) Not sure how I feel about this one. I think it's a good start but it may need to be simplified. Krakens Version 1 This one I personally like but I'm not sure how it would look on a uniform. Kranken Version 2 I think this one has the most promise out of all of them because it has elements of Seattle, the Kraken and the first professional Seattle hockey team.
  20. 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.
  21. I Want some sonic boom back! Here's an Seattle Supersonics concept I made
  22. This is still in the early stages, but I've put together a look for a Seattle NHL franchise based on one of the names listed as a possibility; the Seattle Sea Lions (or Sealions, SeaLions?). For the logo I'm taking inspiration from the AAU SeaWolves work I just did, I'm trying to work an "S" into the shape. and still use northwest coast tribal shapes. I've also been referencing photos of dominant male sea lions and using their distinguishing features (high forehead, prominent whiskers, thick neck/chest). This is just the first sketch, but let me know what you think of the look I have going so far.
  23. This is my first time trying my hand at graphic design, and I wanted to see what others thought. I'm not an artist, and I don't have an incredibly deep understanding of graphic design- I assume what I drew has bad vectoring, but I couldn't tell you the first thing about what vectors are, or what adding the suffix 'ing' to the word vector actually means. So if this is offensively amateur, feel free to let me know and I'll scrub this post! Just wondering if this is anything.
