IIHF World Championship (Finland/Russia added)

Recommended Posts

Haven't had too much time to work on much of anything recently, but with HJC's latest competition starting up, I figured it would be a good time to get back in the design game.

 

The rules for this competition allow for you to submit 3 concepts for teams at the '17 IIHF World Championship (USA, Canada, and your choice). If I can, I'd love to turn this into a series, but for now I am just going to post my work for those first three teams. 

 

I'll start off by posting Team USA...C&C appreciated!

Whoa, those arm stripes are wild. I dig 'em, though. My one suggestion would be to have the collar go all the way around.

Love this. Great job of incorporating the flag without going too crazy.

Maybe consider flipping the stars and stripes to better match the flag when viewed from the front (with stars on the left and stripes on the right)

Good call, thanks for the feedback!

Canada looks great. The minimal use of black complements the design nicely.

I'm gonna disagree completely and say get rid of the black! I've never been a big fan of thin black outline on white, it always bleeds in my eyes (same goes for that white Calgary Flames C with the black outline.)

Thanks for the feedback on Canada. I've come up with three different iterations...which one is best?

 

A. (unchanged)

B. (minimal use of black)

C. (more black)

B looks best to me. I looks great with the black, but even better without it.

Though I'm generally against Black on a Canada jersey, I think this logo craves the usage of at least some black in the design. Alone, I like B the most. However, as a complete set, I think A is the strongest, with the minimal usage of black tying in with the logo without upsetting the dominance of red and white

B looks classic, C looks badass. Take that for what you will. If every other country is going to be red and black, use B. If there are more red/white teams, use C. Context might help you on this one.

Alrighty, I decided to submit option C for Canada because I think it separates itself from other Canada concepts and what was used in the WCH.

 

I'm stuck for which third team to submit to the contest, between Russia and Finland. Which do people like more?

Finland looks better to me as is (though I would match the striping on the white jersey). The gold sleeve stripes on Russia make it look too busy for me.

 

I would've voted A for Canada, as well.

I'd use Finland, but match the chest stripe on the blue sweater with the white... I really like the standout red and gold crest...
