BIG NHL EXPANSION PROJECT (Saskatchewan completed 28/7/15)

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, I have a big project for you that i've been working one for a while. I made concepts for 6 new possible NHL teams.

1. Québec Nordiques

2. Portlans Mountaineers

3. Hamilton Beasts

4. Seattle Sasquatch

5. Halifax Schooners

6. Las Vegas Silver Bullets (hopefully there isn't any controversy with gun control and all that stuff)

I am Willing to do 2 more teams with your suggestions!

This is all for fun, just to see what the brands would look like.

Here is a teaser of every team, and I'll post them one by one.

Which team are you most excited for? I'll post the one with the most buzz first!

From what i can see there doesn't seem to be a need to bash or insult you. The logos look really sharp and very clean.

I'm excited about all of these, but probably most excited about the Sasquatch.

I'm extremely excited for this project. I have a city recommendation. I'd say a city is Saskatchewan like Regina or Saskatoon. i'm also excited for the Seattle Sasquatch. Seems like a great team name idea.

Thanks Guys so here it is, the Seattle Sasquatch

The Hershey Bears In the AHL have a visual brand of just brown, so i tried to recreate that with this team. The Logo is essentially a squatch head, with a subtle tree in the forehead. (I think this is my logo that needs the most cleaning up). The jerseys also feature trees in the pattern, I tried to make the stripes on the arms "Modern". What do you guys think? What team should I post Next?

I like the trees integrated into the striping. The logo is also very nice looking. You sure don't seem to be a beginner. Overall, this is what I'd like a Seattle team to do for real.

Thanks , and I'm not a beginner in a sense where this is my first time designing, I've been doing this for a year, but this is my first legit big project. Thanks for the kind word though.

The sweeping effect on the hair gives it a sort of "feminine" look. I would make the hair on the left the same as the right.

When you said "don't bash or insult me" I thought you would turn out things you made in 5 minutes. Nope. Instead this looks great. I'm excited about Portland as well.

Those squatch uniforms are so great I wish they were real so I could buy them immediately. Kudos to you for trying brown instead of green and blues like we usually see for Pac-N-West teams.

Alright Guys, I'll look to change and adjust the logo according to the comments after I post every team so I can get all the feedback I can to adjust the aesthetics of every team according to popular opinion.

Keep the comments coming, leave what team you want to see next, but for now, Here is Portland

So essentially, i wanted a classy visual for this team, simple look, roundel, and really simple jerseys. As you can notice, mountain ice caps in the "M" Pretty straightforward and probably IMO the most boring of the pack.

Love the away sweater, but the green and grey don't have enough contrast on the home. I would use the grey from the insides of the pickaxe

^I agree with the above comment. A little more white might help too. It's in the logo after all and I think it would look good on the uniforms. Also, will there be 3rd jerseys after this is all said and done? Next up, I would like to see Halifax.

Agreed a lighter grey might work, or just white. Any more thoughts on the logo before I post Halifax

The sides of the "M" in Portland's logo have the appearance that they slant inward. I think that of you have them slant out a little it will fix that. Other than that the logo looks really good.

I agree with jmoe12 about the hair looking feminine the sasquatch.

Time For Halifax,

Logo evokes the nautical theme of Halifax, Not much else to say. I added the wordmark just because the boat itself was to empty on the jersey. SO here it is,

My vote would have been for Halifax Highlanders, but that's a really great logo and uniforms. Not sure about the split numbers but I like everything else.

Thanks, Reason being is that Sparky Chewbarky has already made a concept for the HIghlanders, Just wanted to change it up!

I also say that the split numbers are a bit wonky but everything else is great. I especially like the yoke striping pattern. Hamilton should be next.

I like this a lot, but I agree with the split numbers. I also would not alternate the stripe color. This is an awesome thread!
