Prince Albert Raiders Concept ( UPDATED December,4 Jersey Contest Finalist)

Recommended Posts

This is a rebrand concept for the Prince Albert Raiders of the Western Hockey League. I think that their logo set could up an update so I went ahead and did one. I went back to the pirate theme similar to what they had in the 2000's but I combined it with their current sword identity to create a combination of eras. I currently have 2 options for the primary logo and I need some hel picking the better one for the front of the jerseys. 

 

Option 1 has the wordmark above the pirate head and crossed swords

Option 2 has no wordmark and makes the swords more prominent behind the head

Here is the shoulder logo which I am quite happy with as of now. Just an R with the sword piercing through it

And here is a couple of jersey options. I want to know two things from you guys: which logo looks better on the front, and if the jersey with the hem design or side panels is better. I'm hoping to hear some feedback.

This is a beautiful concept. The sword logo is great, and the jerseys are tremendous. My personal favorite sweater is the top right.

Just nitpicking at this point, but I think the primary pirate head could use a little tweaking. It's a little on the cartoony side. I think if you made the face a little slimmer and gave it a little more definition (i.e. extending the cheekbones, maybe some shadows) it would go a long way. Great work!

This looks awesome, my only small tweak would be the eyes are a little far apart and maybe a little small, otherwise this is killer.

Looks good!  The jerseys, logos, and colors all work great together.  I'm a bigger fan of "Option 2" because the face and swords are rendered nicely and the wordmark takes away from it a bit.

I'm with @nate.sweitz and @LogoMarkabout the pirate's head. Option 2 looks better; it's less busy than 1, and I think it works better on the jerseys.

 

Logo patch looks great; an improvement from the current logo's basic idea!

 

The jerseys are a bit out there but the second option's cool. I'd prefer it if you could emphasize green more and reduce gold to an accent color.

 

Needs a couple edits, but overall a nice update to the Raiders' look!

Here is an update to the Concept

 

I have updated the logo in a few ways. I changed some of the angles on the letters to ill space better. I made the mouth bigger on the pirates so that it is more proportional and the mustache is closer to the nose. I went with jersey option number 2 and applied the new logo to it. I would still like  bit more feedback as well as more opinions on what logo should be on the front because I am honestly 50/50 on it.

Hey Guys. I never did post the final update to this concept. I updated the primary logo as well as made a new jersey design.

 

The concept is currently a finalist in the Prince Albert Raiders jersey contest and it will be worn in a real game if it wins. If you have a minute, please follow the following link

 

http://raiderhockey.com/jerseycontest

 

 and vote for my design if you think it deserves to be worn in a real game. You can vote once per day so if you really like it, make sure to vote daily. Thank you.

I went to the link and couldn't see how to vote. Is it perhaps blocked outside of Canada? It's absurd you're not in first.

There's a small poll at the bottom of the page. I almost missed it myself.

 

And it's awfully tough for the average person to vote against a hand-drawn concept clearly done by a kid. Tugs at the heartstrings and all that.

While Brooks should be in first place, the hand-drawn one isn't terrible. It'll at least look good on the ice... Unlike the 4th option, yikes that's bad. 

 

The update on your jersey is fantastic! Side panels are usually not a good choice, so switching to angled striping was a really good move.

I see the poll but I don't see anything to click for a vote.

Try refreshing the page, that usually works for me

Finally got it to work, and voted. Hoping you get it. Though, now that I think about it, that kid's monogram isn't half-bad.
