Royal HC Jersey Voting: Round 1, Part 1

The final phase of the IceHL World Initiative is underway with daily jersey contest polls all the way through mid-September. Up next are the Royal London HC!

With these final four teams, brackets will be limited to no more than 32 entries. This will prevent going beyond five rounds of polls. In this case, I did receive more submissions than could fit in the bracket. I apologize to those who were not included here. Better luck in the future.

The final phase of the IceHL World Initiative kicks off with daily jersey contest polls all the way through mid-September. We start with the Crete Minotaurs!

This round of polls ends Friday night. Happy voting!



You'll notice I included two polls from Round 2 in this batch. That was just to even things out. Rather than four polls in this round and eight in the next, I decided to do six and six. Catch the next series of Crete polls on Friday!

Submit your Division B jersey designs!

Submit your Division B jersey designs!

The biggest summer for the IceHL since 2008 is finally winding down. We're on the last leg of our journey — creating jerseys for the last group of IceHL World franchises. We have a creative and colorful set of logos so I can't wait to see the uniforms!

THE RULES

  • Design 1 dark and 1 light jersey using team colors and logos provided. (Equipment such as socks, gloves and helmets is optional.)
  • Both jerseys must be in the same image file (PNG or PDF preferred).
  • Submit your final design to icethetics@gmail.com by August 26.
  • Include your first and last name and email address in the graphic you submit and in the body of your email. (Your name will be displayed during voting but your email address will remain private.)
  • Most important: BE CREATIVE! BE CREATIVE! BE CREATIVE!
  • Seriously! Voters can only choose creative jerseys when they're presented with them.

JERSEY DESIGN KIT

To enter the contest you will need to download the IceHL Jersey Design Kit. Click the blue button on the right.

The Design Kit is a ZIP containing the following files:

  • 4 dual jersey templates (PNG)
  • 15 team logos (primary, secondary and wordmarks for the Minotaurs, Mountaineers, Rush and Royal HC)

Like previous jersey contests, the template provided is strongly encouraged, but not required to enter.

Designers may use any template they choose as long as the resulting image uses a 5x3 aspect ratio (preferably 1600x960 pixels) and includes these elements:

  • Two contrasting jerseys (front and back for both)
  • Full set of numbers and letters (make note of any special fonts used)
  • Optional: socks, helmets, gloves and pants

Useful links: SportsLogos.net | Hockey Jersey Concepts

When customizing your jerseys, you may use any name and number you choose. (Inappropriate names will disqualify your submission.)

Please note that the team logos in the Design Kit are to be used only on jersey submissions. You may not use them for any other purpose.


Final note. Simply submitting your jersey design doesn't guarantee it will be included in the voting process. If it doesn't meet a certain level of quality, I'll give you the opportunity to try again as long as you meet the deadline. (But I always accept far more than I reject.)

DEADLINE: TUESDAY, AUG. 26

I know this deadline is coming up quickly but jersey submissions came together quickly with the Division A teams and we got far more than I expected.

As always, if you have any questions, please ask by email. Good luck to all!

IceHL World: Division B logos revealed!

IceHL World: Division B logos revealed!

It's finally time to reveal the winning logos for the rest of the new IceHL World teams!

CRETE MINOTAURS
Logos by Joshua Benkelman

This is Josh's second win this year. Earlier this summer, he won the Hawaii Honu logo design contest. After some comments on his original primary mark, Josh made some adjustments. However, the original design will remain part of the team's logo package and will be made available to jersey designers.

GOLD COAST RUSH
Logos by Tim Schellenberg

Tim has been participating in IceHL design contests since the project first began in 2008. So imagine how he must feel to finally win for the first time! He's definitely paid his dues and his logos will represent the IceHL's first Australian team well.

GENEVA MOUNTAINEERS
Logos by Colin Magee

Colin Magee joins the elite group of designers to enter multiple winning logos during this summer's IceHL expansion. He previously won for the Osaka Samurai. His simple yet sophisticated Mountaineers set is the second single-color design in the IceHL — following the rebrand of the Olympiques last year.

ROYAL LONDON HC
Logos by Matt McElroy

There really is no stopping this guy. It seems we can't announce a batch of IceHL logo contest winners anymore without including the talented Matt McElroy. He joins Benkelman and Magee with multiple winning logo designs in 2014.

Congratulations to all of our exceptional designers — even those who didn't win in the end. It takes enormous skill and dedication just to create a set of logos to submit and I am extremely grateful to have all of you as part of this project.

That leaves only one thing thing. Jerseys! If you're itching to start working on uniforms, stay tuned. The Jersey Design Kit will be available soon.
