IHL 2017

Recommended Posts

Good start so far. I'm sad that the Moose aren't included in this, but maybe you can come up with an idea for them down the road, either a Manitoba or Minnesota version.

I'd prefer Generals and Ice!

This thread is awesome as always are your works!

My only concern is about the roadrunner outline. I see your point on doing it  of the same color as the darker brown shadow on the jerseys, but the outline is too close to the roadrunner inside color in my opinion.

LOVE the Gems.  For obscure reference fun, you should have a fifth jersey where the logo is a hologram.

Saginaw Gears, as Flint was the Generals for most of their IHL existence (tied in with the fact that GM had a huge presence in their city back then)

The blue on the Roadrunner jerseys is a fantastic touch. I like Generals and Ice, both the cities have histories with those names

Is that even a question? The Gears name has always been one of my favourites in hockey!

So after hearing what you wanted, I decided to go with the Gears, but with some nods to the Generals and even the Hawks in their branding to tie together the history of hockey in Saginaw. 

 

That being said, here are the IHL affiliates of the Buffalo Sabres, the Saginaw Gears:

For the uniforms, I wanted something that encompasses years of tradition while still looking modern and relevant. The home, road, and third have the exact same striping, a thing I love using to tie a look together. The sock stripes will go all the way up to the bottom of the knees.

I'm loving the Affiliate night jersey. The home/away jerseys have a great design on them, but I feel navy blue would suit it more than black.

It's a dark green. Maybe too dark.

I don't think it's too dark, it looks great. I'd make green the primary road though.

I really like the your colour choices on everything so far. I do think you should make the road green and the alt orange.

Sorry now that I look at it on a different device I can see it much better. The green looks very nice. Sorry just on a horrible screen it looked black to me.

Everything looks great so far! Can't wait for the rest of the series! I also have a suggestion based on something said earlier. The dragon kind of does look a bit like a bird. Dragons "did" have pointy ears in the past, so maybe that could help it's appearance.

For their uniforms, I used a traditional Hopi (local Native tribe) pattern in a non-conventional sleeve and hem stripe to create a modern look.

I really like this Roadrunners concept, especially the turquoise. It might be worth considering submitting this to the Coyotes, since they have yet to decide on a name, and Roadrunners is a local favorite suggestion. Great stuff.

Up next are the Salt Lake City Golden Eagles, the current and historical affiliates of the Calgary Flames.

 

For their design I wanted something modern that also nods to their long-time relationship with the Flames.
