  1. UPDATE: There was a little confusion as to what specifically changed. The choice of Shark is solely for the physical mascot representation. Prospector Pete was removed and replaced with a Shark (whose look will be developed over the next year). Long Beach State athletics will not rebrand and are still referred to as "The Beach" or "Beach Athletics," the baseball team is still "Dirtbags," and students/faculty/alumni/people associated with the school are still informally known as "49ers." ------- ORIGINAL POST: ------> -----> (NOT OFFICIAL LOGOS, JUST RENDERINGS BY THE SCHOOL) The long, drawn-out, partially unneccesary, and all-out confusing process of the Cal State Long Beach / Long Beach State 49ers / Beach / Dirtbags naming saga has come to an end. On Friday, the students chose, with a 53% vote, and the university president ratified the new university mascot: Sharks Sharks was chosen from a group of three finalists (Stingrays 22% and "Go Beach" 25% as the other two) that was chosen from a group of six semifinalists (additional options of Giraffes, Pelicans, Kraken). Long Beach State is well known for its Shark Lab, which has been featured several times during Discovery Channel's Shark Week. LBSU now enters a year-long development process to come up with logos and branding and all that fun stuff. (The above isn't official, just something the school provided.) Six months ago, Cal State Long Beach / Long Beach State (they're still working on that. Officially its Cal State Long Beach, but they're working on the change as Fresno State and San Diego State have) officially remove Prospector Pete as the athletics/university mascot after years of criticism that he was offensive to indigenous peoples of the area, which Long Beach State actually has a great relationship with. Prospector Pete was chosen as a representative of 49ers, which is a reference to the founding of the school in 1949 and of course the Gold Rush, where again prospectors weren't great to the people whose land they were stealing, mining and blowing up for gold. Since then, and even before then when I was a student there, they had tried to shift away from the 49ers brand and tried to emphasize "Beach" as their claim to being the only Division 1 school with the word "Beach" in the name. Thought it would be attractive to kids around the country. ("Come to school at The Beach!") The rallying cry for LBSU for years has been Go Beach. But trying to refer to the teams as "The Beach" or just "Beach" proved to be quite awkward. During this interim period, the athletic teams will be officially known as "Beach Athletics." The only thing really unchanged by all of this, the LBSU baseball team has been and will continually be known as "Dirtbags." There's a long history to that name, and while on the surface sound derogatory, it came about as a term of endearment for how the team played on the bases in the 80s. Constantly stealing bases, laying out, diving and being covered in dirt. Also, FWIW, it's technically an informal nickname. It's not official. It's on jerseys and on merch, but technically they're still called officially whatever the school's mascot is. --- TL;DR - Long Beach State was the 49ers, removed Prospector Pete as physical mascot because the Gold Rush was bad to Native Americans. 49ers formally dropped as school tried to emphasize The Beach. Physical mascot choice put it to a student vote, and is now a Shark. Dirtbags remains unchanged. Students/Faculty/Alumuni/Organizations still informally referred to as 49ers.
  2. I decided to do a Ducks-Sharks Stadium Series concept, since I've always thought it would be cool to see the Ducks play outdoors at Angels Stadium. The other two California teams have hosted Stadium Series games, so while it's unlikely, it only feels logical that the Ducks would eventually do the same. As you can tell, both of the jerseys combine aspects from the teams' past and present uniforms. For the Ducks, I went with the original Mighty Duck logo, as well as very similar striping pattern as their original uniforms. With the Sharks, I combined their current logo together with their original jerseys, while swapping out the grey stripes with orange. The Stadium Series logo itself obviously is based on the "Big A" that is located just outside of Angels Stadium, while also borrowing from the Angels' color scheme itself. The home plate shape also continues the baseball motif. This is my first post here, so I would appreciate some feedback.
  3. So a few years ago when the Sharks were hosting a Stadium Series game against the Kings, I came up with a concept of what they might wear. Many people said it should be used as the full-time set. However, others said that the colors meshed too much and it bogged down the design. So, with Adidas set to unveil the uniforms tomorrow, I thought I'd throw my design in what I would hope the Sharks would do. Granted, I'm not expecting much. I'd be pleasantly surprised if there was something even close to this. Shoulder patches were left blank as I didn't know which one they were going to go with. I just saw that reveal in the teaser trailer this afternoon. So the orange could be removed, but I might actually be getting used to the orange...oh my, what is happening!
  4. I personally think that some of the extinct hockey teams looked the best. The Whalers, Nordiques, Rockies, Jets, etc. had some of my favorite hockey designs ever, and instead now we get to feast our eyes on the Hurricanes and Avalanche. Sad. So, This is basically my attempt to rewrite history, if the new franchises continued the look of their formers, Starting out with the Whaler-Hurricanes. The whalers had one of the best logos in all of sports history, and awesome uniforms and color scheme to boot, which helps to make the Hurricanes design more unique. C&C appreciated, and although I have some more on tap, let me know what you'd like to see next! Thanks!

  6. He guys! This is my San Jose Sharks concept using their new logos they unveiled last season. I tried to blend the old and the new to make a new, bold look for the Sharks. C&C is appreciated!
  7. About a month after I meant to get started on the final leg of the Anniversary saga, here I go...the multi-team North Stars series finally begins, and we kick things off with the 60s. The Wild do battle with the Predators, whose uniform design is based on one of their spiritual ancestors, the Nashville Dixie Flyers Down in Big D, the Stars face off with a foe that can legitimately be the visting team in any decade...yes, it's the 'Nucks again, this time borrowing from their minor league namesakes. For the upcoming 70s post, I'm considering using the Cleveland Monsters instead of the Blue Jackets for the Barons tribute. Very strongly, I might add. I give you an early preview of the disco decade...the Sharks, paying tribute to the California Golden Seals (at home, for once) take on the Avs (in the style of the Nordiques' originals)
  8. I get that they San Jose Barracuda are sponsered by Barracuda and they worked their logo around the company logo, but was it worth it? The logo looks like a pile of fish parts. So using some style cues from the Sharks logos I put this together. Let me know what you think.
  9. I had a bit of trouble sleeping a few nights ago, and then the idea for this mini-series came to me: take all of the Kings' old jerseys (with the exception of the first Edge jersey and the Burger King design). Play a little mix-n-match with their crests and colors. Have various opponents play along. End result: I think I have an awesome idea, and I must post. First up: 60s-70s jersey + Gretzky era crest & colors vs. California Golden Seals San Jose Sharks. Yes, I felt it was worth the effort to cannibalize the Seals wordmark to create a Sharks version. Next up: the Flyers ripoffs worn for most of the 80s + 2000s era logos. Since the 70s night slot was taken by the Sharks...guess who's coming in for 80s night? That's right, the Flying V. Funny thing about the Kings jersey, I was strongly considering either the coat of arms or just the lion as the crest, since I'd soured on that particular crown years ago. Settled for the crown on front, and the lion on the breezers. 90s Night will feature the Forum Blue & Gold vs. the Ducks, while 2K Night's itinerary will feature the Burger King vs. the Coyotes. You have been warned
  10. A few nods to several past looks + something different for the road white...
