Tournament of Hockey Design Competition

This blog is all about the Art of Hockey (hence the name) and the designs that make the game look great. With that being said there are some that are just far superior to others. So I present... The 2012 Tournament of Hockey Design! If you're an icethetics reader then I'm sure you have heard of the Tournament of Logos. The Tournament of Logos faces various NHL logos against eachother and readers vote until the best logo is revealed. I wanted to do something similar here. However, instead of celebrating just the teams' primary logos, we could celebrate all of the other designs and art we see in hockey. We could do primary logos, alternate logos (shoulder patches), third jersey logos. Of course we'd do jerseys/uniforms. We could even choose the best color scheme or the best goalie mask in the league? I don't know but all of this represents the art of hockey and it should be celebrated.

Here's a few ideas I had:

  • We start with the NHL. If it's a success we could move on to minor leagues, college, retro, etc.
  • We keep it current. For this NHL version we only use current logos, uniforms, etc.
  • I will create a set of nominees for each category. (Too many to vote for every teams design.) 
  • You, the readers, vote for every champion!
Here's some of the categories I had in mind. If you don't like any of these
  • Best Primary Logo
  • Best Secondary Logo
  • Best 3rd Jersey Logo
  • Best Specialty Logo (Anniversary logos, event logos etc. It might be hard to find a lot of current ones this early, though.)
  • Best Uniform
  • Best Alternate Jersey
  • Best Color Scheme (A little out there but it might be fun>)
  • Worst Logo
  • Worst Uniform
  • Worst Alternate Jersey
So if you would please comment and let me know any ideas you have, I would really appreciate it!
