Pittsburgh Penguins Concept: Return to Athletic Gold

Recommended Posts

This concept is one of the few little practice projects I've started and decidedto finish.

I've always hated the Penguins vegas gold. It's just nasty.

Athletic gold is better suited, IMO. It always looked good.

Here I decided to go with a pretty simple design that pays homage to some of their older sets.

The most obvious inspiration comes from the Pens sets from the '80s. The gold sleeves aren't exactly my favorite on the white jersey, but I've always loved the black jersey (their current throwback).

I switched up the striping a little bit to make the white jersey a little bit less gold-heavy. I think the color distribution is a bit more appealing in this case.

I've tried out a pointed shoulder yoke seam, which accentuates the alternate logo, as well as very subtly paying homage to my favorite set (pointed yokes from the '92-'02 set).

The alternate logo is just an idea I was messing around with. I wanted to use a triangular logo on the shoulder, but they've always lacked secondary logos. I wanted to stay far away from using a roundel logo.

A bit basic, but still a good look for the Pens. I prefer the Athletic Gold to the Vegas Gold they have now.

Thanks! I didn't expect to get much love for it. Pretty simply put together in Paint, so I appreciate the kind words!

I also prefer the athletic gold.

& was kind of going for basic, but I think seeing the jersey worn would give a better idea of how the yoke would look (pointed rather than rounded). Hopefully unique without going crazy.
