    "Desecrating" the NFL

    Vegas looks really solid, but the copper numbers on the white seem kind of out of place. I’d be interested to see if black or even silver number s would fare better

    @NoE38 was right. It appears I transposed two of the numbers when I was plugging in the color code to get the Bruins brown. The above post has been updated with the slightly darker shade

    2017/18 NHL Refresh (24/31 BOS Added)

    We're back and into our final Division with the Bruins kicking off the Atlantic! (Posts should be coming more regularly now that the semester is over and I'm on the summer term) Boston Bruins With the Penguins returning to Pittsburgh Gold in the past few years, there's been some debate about whether the Bruins should return to brown to try and differentiate themselves or thick with the black and gold that's defined them for all of recent history. Rather than choose one of these two paths, I wanted to explore if the Bruins could be successful with both, so both Brown and Black are a part of the color pallet seen here. The Bruins return to a full length yoke, though this time highlighted by outline stripes rather than stripes within. The striping pattern draws from the outlining of the logo and is matched on the hem and shorts. Gear remains primarily black but with brown accents and an isolated B on the pants. Numbering remains consistent across the home and away, with the same pattern on each backdrop. On white, the numbering follows the same black-yellow-black pattern as the spoked-B whereas on brown, the full pallet is promoted through a white-black-yellow look. As always, C&C is appreciated. Looking to get a new team out every few days now and we'll finish her up in the next couple of weeks.

    Without any exaggeration, that Blue's alternate may be the single greatest concept design that has graced this site in my experience. BLUES all the way

    ldconcepts' NHL Redesign 3.0 (Bracket Updated)

    If I could, I’d buy that black sens jersey in a heartbeat. Fantastic blackout look. The white is a bit of a disappointment in comparison, though. Could use some more black to fit better with the blackout home, though I’m not sure where. Simple black yoke, maybe?

    Cant help but see the missed opportunity of using a hawk wing in the logo or achieving the same effect with large feathers off the head of the tomahawk, but other than that, really nice work. The blues template looks surprisingly nice with the Hawks' Red-Black-White scheme.

    Orlando Solar Bears Concept

    Now that the competition is over, I thought I'd share my Orlando Solar Bears concept from THE SEASON over on HockeyJerseyConcepts.com. The home and away were my regular season entry and carried through with a perfect 5-0 record earning me the top seed in the playoffs. The design centers around a circular upper arm fill meant to symbolize the aura of the sun while displaying the entirety of the Solar Bears' unique color pallet. The pants remain simple to play off the busy design on the sweaters and golden-boy Ryan Reaves adorns the back of each jersey. The alternate shown was my concept for the playoff rounds of the competition and again ran the table to be crowned THE SEASON Champion. This design draws on the Cleveland Barons TV-numbers within the Ohio outline look,by surrounding these shoulder numbers in the outline of the sun from the chest logo. From there the color pallet is refined by striping away teal and giving yellow a greater role. The yellow-on-orange from the logo is maintained throughout the set as well as white remaining on its own, surrounded only by purple. The #OB NOB are meant to reflect the lettering on the chest logo with un-outlined orange text on top of white in both instances. Really happy with the way these turned out (and the way they performed in competition). At the end of the day, I think this is the most fun I've had with an individual concept since I started designing. Let me know what you think. C&C always welcome.

    Washington Capitals Never been a fan of the Caps jerseys since the Edge turnover, so we've got a complete overhaul here. Weagle takes center stage and navy is promoted to the primary (with all the talk about the Russians' involvement in Washington, its best to stay away from another Red Scare if possible). Home takes cues from this years ASG jerseys with the side paneling covering only half the sleeve. DC pride runs clean through the striping pattern with the DC Flag serving as the inspiration for the pattern on the home and away. Stadium Series W finds its home on the pants and I'll leave the rest for you guys to dissect in the comments.

    Sure Thing! That was actually my first idea as well; Seems you're not alone in your attachment to the current look. I went with the white #OB because the home is already very yellow-centric with the extended yoke, so white #OB really helps to bring that balance back.

    We're back baby! After a long hiatus due to moving twice, starting a new job, having paint.net die on me, acquiring a new design software, and learning that software (and a new template courtesy of @JCRGraphix) all while being a full-time college student, I am happy to say I'm reviving the series. I can't promise the same rate of release as I'd been operating over the summer, but I can promise that there wont be 7 months in between entries ever again, so without further ado... Pittsburgh Penguins This one gave me the fits for awhile. Designing for your favorite team is hard (harder than I appreciated til trying) because everything has to be just right. I was initially inspired by the design of the 2017 ASG Jerseys to give the Penguins an extended yoke to tie in with the "Golden Triangle" identity. Unfortunately the color balance on such a look really hampered it success, with the road either being too heavy on the black or two heavy on the gold. What we have here is my solution, marrying the extended yoke with the Pens pre-edge striping, a la Crosby's rookie year, and their current color scheme (and hem layout) to tie everything back together. Beyond that the rest is pretty self explanatory, current number font stays and NOB and #OB colors are shifted around a bit to better fit the new look. Pens keep to their theme of no shoulder logos and the pants remain bear save for a vertical white-yellow pattern to match the yoke tips of the road. As always, C&C appreciated. It's good to be back!
