Redesigning the Alps Hockey League (whole league sum up)

Recommended Posts

You killed most of these!  The gear logo is perfect.  In your redesign, do the teams do away with sponsors?  If not, they will destroy your hard work.

 

Also, does Red Bull sponsor at least one of every sport on the planet?

Definitely, also in sports you don't even know exist ? and especially in Austria since they are based there.

The only kind of ads I can barely tolerate are soccer kits ads. Those can be nice if they fit the color right, like Jeep for Juventus or Chevrolet for Man U. But every other sport uniform usually looks totally off with ads on. For this reason I put ads only on soccer or rugby concepts.

HC Pustertal-Val Pusteria

Full name: Hockey Club Pustertal-Val Pusteria 

Nickname: I Lupi (the wolves)

Home: Stadio Rienza, Brunico-Bruneck

Founding: 1954

Championships: -

 

Old  logo and jersey

My concept

As I found that the mascot jersey was pretty nice, I designed my concept around it, with a dougle gray stripe band. The logo is now a proper wolf and the black circle underneath should reimnd of a puck. The double naming of the team comes frome the fact that in this region of Italy german is spoken as well as italian is, so Pustertal is the german translation of Val Pusteria, as Bruneck is the german name of the town of Brunico.

The grey is too dark next too the black, and it’ll be too light for the road numbers...

 

I've now toned down the gray a bit. On the wolf logo it looks certainly better, though, not so sure on the jersey .

EK Zell am See

Nickname: Eisbären (ice bears)

Home: Eishalle, Zell am See

Founding: 1928

Championships: 6 austrian titles

 

Old logos and jerseys

My concept

I stayed with the traditional colors of  yellow and blue and partly used the old logos, using the same bear face silhouette, with some feature reworking. The split jersey is an attempt to modernise the look of the team, but also to differentiate it from all the others AHL teams.

I think it looks good, the yellow seems a little too bright though, almost highlighter yellow, if you darken that to more of an athletic yellow it would be much better IMO.

I love European minor hockey and I love this series. Although there's a lot to improve, especially logo wise, it's still a great series. Keep 'em coming and keep getting better.

I must have problems with the pc screen colors, as the yellow I used was a bright one, but nowhere close to volt yellow. As this problem surfaced in previous concepts I should definitely fix the issue. Meanwhile, I changed the yellow to a darker tone.

I discovered I had some screen lighting completely set wrong. From now on the issue should be fixed.

For logos, you did a great job with Rittner Buam (huge improvement, good color change), Jesenice (well-executed idea), and Kitzbuhel (really classy logo, with a great color scheme! My favorite so far).

Not feeling Asiago's logo (a slight downgrade from the clean lion silhouette logo), KAC (as clunkly as the original, I feel), and Pusteria (the wolf's head is kinda undefined, and the text is illegible on the roundel).

EKZ's logo is a bit plain, but alright.

 

For uniforms, Rittner Buam is a huge upgrade (the curved striping is cool), as is Lustenau, Jesenice (love the shoulder gears!), and Kitzbuhel.

Asiago's patterned striping is awesome but the color balancing needs some work.

Fassa still looks good but both the logo and uniforms are a slight downgrade*, as I liked the colors in the wings and the chest stripe. Same with Cortina: the logo is better but the font is worse, and their current gradient jersey is really cool*.

 

Overall, good work, and big improvements from the originals. Thank you for removing all the jersey ads; that really gives the teams some character.

 

*if you ignore all the ads on the originals.

The bear logo feels a little bit flat. You might want to try incorporating the yellow a little more into the logo as a way of adding one more layer of shadowing and detail to the bear's face. For example, the yellow hue could run under the eyes and over the top of the eyebrows, as well as along the sides of the bridge of the nose. If the yellow is too bright you could also possibly try introducing a light grey value to the palette.

Fraser Davidson is always really good at finding the right balance of detail in his designs. Here is a logo of his that provides a good example of what I mean by the detail that could be added by introducing another color to the face:

Based on some of the feeback provided, I decided to rework some concepts posted here. 

 

For Cortina I changed the font and the color of the shoulder stars.

For the Icebears I decided to add some color strokes on the face to underline the bear facial features. The kabuki style bear is what I ended up with and I don't dislike it.

For Asiago I redesigned a bit the lion head, adding some orange-yellow to the logo. On the away jersey I changed  the numbers color and outline to make them pop out a bit more.

Old logo and jerseys

My concept

I used a slightly adjusted version of their new logo. The jersey also follows the same style, with a shoulder yoke. The two color stripes of the jerseys are taken from the original logo mascot eye coloring.

HC Gherdëina

Full name: Hockey Club Gherdëina

Nickname: -

Home: Pranives, Selva di Val Gardena

Founding: 1927

Old logo and jerseys

HC_Gherd%C3%ABina.pngHC_Gherd%C3%ABina.png20181029174822.jpg20170518100127.jpg

 

My concept

The logo was rediseigned to incorporate an horseshoe has the G for Gherdëina. The horseshoe pattern is reused in the bottom striping, while the wide chest stripe is taken from their current jersey. The team has not a nickname, or at least is not very well known, so to differentiate, as we already have the Broncos, they could be the Stallions.

HK Olimpija

My concept

For the logo I used the dragon from Olimpija basketball team's logo, as it looked so sharp. The overall design is pretty basic, to match the long tradition of the team. Even if HD Olimpija was founded only in 2004, its mother team, HDD Olimpija, won 15 slovenian titles and 13 yugoslavian titles before folding in 2017.

Old logo and jerseys

My concept

The shield logo remained almost the same, I just tried to render it in a less cartoonish way, but the overall idea was nice and geese are underused unimals in sports.The tricolor striping is there to add a complex note to an overall quite linear jersey. They do look a little bit like the Calgary Flames, but that is not a bad thing. Goose paws as shoulder patches were added to underline the pride of being a part of a gaggle of wild geese.
