North American Collegiate Athletics (NACA) Hockey Concepts

 

In this thread I will be adding my concepts for (made up) colleges and their hockey teams. This is going to be a long project I imagine and so far I only have a couple teams complete but I plan on making somewhere between  20-50 (maybe more?) teams across North America (not just the US) which will populate multiple 'conferences' or divisions. I also plan on making peripheral graphics for league logos, etc.

 

My main goal for all these teams is to create a unique brand based around non-traditional mascots/ team names and color schemes!

 

 

Central American Conference

Eagle County College

Goodwell Christian

Wyoming State

Greywood College

TBD

TBD

 

Sun Conference

Florida at Three Lakes

Central Louisiana

TBD

MORE TO COME! (HOPEFULLY)

Eagle County College

Avalanche Dogs

 

First team! I based the 'AvDogs' on a hat I have from Vail, CO which depicts a dog similar to the one I made for the primary logo. The secondary is derived from other merch I have from Vail, I think it might even be the official 'avalanche unit' logo.

University of Florida at Three Lakes 

Gillmen

Team 2 baby! I wanted to make a green/ swamp themed team so I made the Gillmen whose branding is based off of the 'gillman' from the 1954 feature film 'Creature from the Black Lagoon'

 

The Gillman as a mascot is supposed to resemble a swamp monster/ man hybrid.

Goodwell Christian University

Addax

 

I'm not too sure how I feel about the Addax (which is a type of antelope, I think) I like the colors and the logo is ok but I'm already thinking about ways to improve it as I dont think it looks as good as it could. 

 

Here I used some of the Phoenix Sun's color palette instead of coming up with my own like I had for the first two teams. C&C for the Addax is very welcome!spacer.png

I love college hockey so this immediately caught my attention. The AvDogs look great, love the whole look and am a huge fan of the cross motif.

 

The Gillmen also look great, it's definitely a unique brand but it all works really well together.

 

The Addax are a bit of a miss in my opinion though. I think the away is decent, but could use some work and the red alt is pretty good, but I'm not really a fan of the home jersey from the striping to the logo blending in

Central Louisiana University

Bourbons

I sorta left this topic/ project behind last spring but I really want to finish or at least expand on the ideas and add more teams at least for a while. The CLU Bourbons were already in the works back in April but I didn't bother to 'complete' them until last night. I don't consider this team finished either but I wanted to throw what I currently have out there so I can move onto other teams and circle back to redesign.

 

The third jersey diverts quite a bit and is based on the Louisiana flag/ seal.

Greywood College

Wardens

 

 I'm still workshopping jersey designs for the Wardens as of right now but I wanted to post the first showcase first anyway while i finish the jerseys.

 

I really enjoyed this one and I even created a bit more of a backstory for Greywood than usual. The David Henry Greywood College of South Dakota (More commonly known as Greywood College or GCSD) was founded primarily for the study of Geology and Ecology in the American west. For this reason David Greywood established the school in the 'wild west' on the border of what would become the Black Hills national forest. 

 

Due to the schools proximity to so many national parks and forests the school originally took up the unofficial moniker of 'Rangers' in reference to the park rangers in the national service but the name Wardens was officially adopted by the school when the National Forests Service partnered with the school. 

 

The school colors are various shades of grey in reference to the name of the school's founder.
