Name This Blog

This is my official post announcing my intentions to rename the NHL Tournament of Logos blog. It's a huge task that I cannot undertake on my own.

In the comments of this post, I would like you guys to start putting forth ideas for a new title. After a few days, I'm going to assemble a poll with some of the best options and on the blog's birthday (May 9), announce it's new name!

Here's an important thing to note when coming up with your ideas. Because people have bookmarks, I don't want to change the site's address. So we're staying put at nhllogos.blogspot.com. All I need from you guys is a new title only. (After we have that, we'll hold a contest to design a logo for the blog.)

It's all going to be up to you guys, so let's have your ideas!

how about

" nhlconceptart.blogspot.com "

ironman said...

i think it should be nhlconceptart.blogspot.com
as well.

Chris said...

Not bad ideas but I don't want to change the site's address. Also keep in mind that we're not only about concept art. We always have polls of some kind going as well. The blog's very interactive that way. Keep working at it!

ali said...

I agree with canuck18

Atownjacket said...

Although it doesn't work as well when you take the polls into consideration, but I like the sound of "Hockey Fan's Fantasies".

Ohh...I just thought of another. "Hockey Fans Interactive". You can even use the tagline, "Where you are the star!"

awildermode said...

just "NHL Logos" you get to keep the url, and it saids it all...

Master of the Obvious said...

* Ice Designs
* Hockey: Reinvented
* Think Again Hockey
* Out of the Box Hockey Design
* Restitched: A revisionist set of NHL logos
* Where Art & Hockey Collide


Those are all fairly terrible haha, but I wanted to try to make a contribution...

go canucks go said...

I like " nhl concept art " If there was just a way to include the fact that we have polls would be perfect. The majority of the the posts are probably concept art posts, then polls, the announcments.

R-Dub said...

How about:
NHL I.C.E. (which could stand for IceHockey Concept Experience)

or
The Concept Crease

or
NHLCA (national hockey league concept art)
with "Where true Design evolves" or some other cheesy tagline

Arenacale said...

The NHL Studio

The Artful NHL

The Pro Shop: NHL Logos and Jerseys

Explanation - 'Third Jersey' symbolizes the concepts that are made by the fans, that are not part of the real NHL teams logo base.

Just really an alternative to the 'Third Jersey one.

Phil said...

I'm really into "The Fourth Jersey" and "Puck Threads"

canucklehead said...

NHL Concepts

aka

Fans Know Best

Michael said...

How about "Coolest Graphics on Earth"? (kinda like the NHL's old slogan)

bluenotepunk said...

How about National Hockey Logos (nhl)

Michael said...

In honor of your April Fool's post..."Project Runway on Ice!"

Seriously, though, I think either:

Hockey Faceoff
-I like the idea of "faceoff" because it connotes a match up between two teams or two centers and a big part of this site has and will continue to be the polls. By saying "Hockey" faceoff rather than NHL Faceoff, you can merge your other blog into this one for one all encompassing hockey fan's website.

Someone earlier mentioned Restiched, which I really like except it only focuses on the concept art aspect of the site.

or

Threading the Needle
- a perfect pass, or shot, or a sewing term to refer to the jerseys and designs.

I like the idea of using hockey terms...
Light the Lamp
Overtime
Shootout

Mike said...

Not big on the names that just focus on the concept art since this site is so much more. Here are some of my ideas...

1: The Extra Attacker
2: Evolution of Hockey
3: Re-Defining Hockey
4: The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly
5: Rebirthing the NHL

And my favorite...
PROOF THAT THE FANS ARE REVOLTING

Double meaning there
- fans are starting a revolution against the way the the NHL is now
- fans' ideas posted on this site are crazy/disgusting (Freak Out Friday).

PROOF THAT THE FANS ARE REVOLTING

Mike said...

how about "The Locker Room"?

said...

I like "The Art of the NHL" because it is simple and it describes what the site is about.

Jersey Bill said...

Graphic Ice.

I'm thinking some kind of glacier logo. Striations, erosion and huge cracks with the primary logo punching out.

Patty (in Dallas) said...

I vote for James' "The Fourth Jersey."

Hockey Week said...

PuckThreads and The Fourth Jersey are pretty darn good.

Resurfacing the NHL is my favorite so far though.
you're changing the jerseys and logos, the "surfaces" of the teams (as opposed to the teams themselves, rosters, locations, number of, etc). you could even have a pretty nice logo: overhead view of a zamboni driving down the ice, the top half of what he's driven over are (the top half of) current logos, the bottom half are (the bottom half of) the new logos you've created, as if he's literally resurfacing the logos.
i think there's a lot of potential there

pgirasole89 said...

"Inside the Jersey" is my vote...also, can we get Ghetto Farm Boy to rename his moniker to something a bit more serious/professional??

Steve Pumilia said...

Hey chris i own the domain for my blog and it only cost me 15 bucks dont you think you would get more hits and better recognition if it was just nhllogos.com instead of having to type in blogspot everytime. BTW my suggestion when choosing a new name for the blog would have to be Concept:NHL or the nhldesign.com somthing like that.- Steve, SP4 designs
