IHA Final Art: Pacific

This week we're unveiling of the winning logo sets for each team in the IHA Project. This week we've looked at the final artwork for the Atlantic, West and Northeast Divisions. Today we're doing the Pacific.

Below are the logos you selected for the IHA. On the left is the team's primary logo. To the right is the secondary and the wordmark is beneath it. Under the graphic is the designer's credit.

To all the winning designers: If you would like your credit changed or a link added, please don't hesitate to let me know. Since you aren't being compensated in any other way for all your work, the least I can do is offer a link to your web site, blog or online portfolio — just in case certain eyes are looking. You never know. However, if you would like to remain anonymous, that's fine too.

Tomorrow I'll unveil the final logo designs for the Great Lakes Division. Then next week you'll vote on the Central Division logos and the following week I'll post the final designs and this project will officially come to an end. I look forward to seeing artwork from the same talented designers for the next project!

Was that the best anyone could do for the Metropolitans? Seems that all 3 of their logos were finalists.

Also, I really dig the Dynamo set although reminds me of the old Los Angeles Galaxy and defunct NFL Europa team, the Frankfurt Galaxy logos. I'm sure there are others out there.

I have to say that these logo's don't seem to meet the standards of the other divisions. Still decent, but it seems like the other divisions seta higher bar that these ones jsut don't meet.

I like Vancouver's logos the best.

One thing I need to point out, though... The fleur-de-lis logo for the Saints seems a little inappropriate since LA has Spanish heritage, not French.

LOL some one was thinking Football!

This set is lacking compared to the others... the Vancouver set is the best of these... I agree that the fleur-de-lis is out of place with the LA Saints.

With the exception of Vancouver, this is a pretty weak division

I agree with everyone! haha. Weak set overall. Vancouver secondary logo is nice. It seems that whoever designed the Saints secondary logo did not realize that the fleur-de-lis is symbolic of New Orleans' french heritage and has nothing to do with the term Saints, even though it is used as their logo. I would suggest he resubmit a secondary logo. No harm done. But it should be changed.

Isn't there like 3 teams now using the same fleur-de-lis for their logo or sub-logo? I thought we weren't supposed to take other team's artwork - New Orleans Saints, anyone?

The Seattle Mets (metropolitians) used to be a team the won the 1916-1917 Stanley Cup.

For all those questioning the fleur-de-lis, there is actual reason for L.A. to use such a symbol. L.A. was founded in 1781 by a Spanish governor. At the time, the ruler of Spain was Charles III of the Spanish Bourbons (the Spanish off-shoot of the Bourbons that first ruled France and Navarre.) The crest for the House of Bourbon? A blue shield with three gold fleurs-de-lis.

Now, I admit that the fleur-de-lis is better known as a symbol of the French and it is unlikely that L.A. would choose that particular icon for as an unrelated (to the team name) of their heritage.

Of course, it could just be a nod to Saint Ursicinus of Saint-Ursanne, to whom one prays to prevent stiff necks and of whom the fleur-de-lis is a symbol.

carpandean said...

And, no, that's not my design.

hncreature said...

Vancouver is GREAT!

Besides that...this is my least favorite division so far

carpandean said...

Wow, "for as an unrelated of" ... not my finest moment.
