NHL COLOR RUSH by JB Designs (ARI added 2/23)

Recommended Posts

From Music City to a team with a music moniker...

 

The St. Louis Blues

The angled jerseys of the Gretzky era are back, but with a twist. Rather than adding red, the Blues subtract royal and white for a clean, two-color Color Rush look. The hem follows a similar angled pattern to the first iteration white the arms feature the five stripes seen in sheet music halfway up the sleeves and a thick cuff at their ends. The fabled St. Louis horn logo returns in a new two-color variant and the chest logo and #OB are angles to match the striping on the hem. Equipment keeps it simple and keeps it navy to contrast the bold gold sweater.

Let's here some feedback, ladies and gents! Only one more team left in the Central.

St Louis looks good in a vacuum, but it feels too much like Nashville, especially with the staff pattern separated from the big blocks of color. Incorporating royal blue and/or red, and/or having a large block of color up to the sleeve striping would help. 

 

I love your Capitals & Avalanche concepts! Perfectly done! Only concern for CO, the white helmet + blue jersey look amazing, but would it be allowed?

 

Chicago and Montreal also look pretty darn good.

 

Minnesota feels kinda out of place given their current, more reserved aesthetic. Still, not bad.

TB's logo needs a thicker outline; right now it's kinda awkward.

Like the idea to simplify Dallas's star jersey. The white and gray bleed together on outlines & stuff.

 

Good work!

Really like the Nashville jerseys, but yeah those Blues jerseys should be the Nashville jerseys.  Wondering if you shouldn’t just say ah to heck with it and find a way to throw red into those Blues jerseys. Go Gretzky or go home.

Thanks for the feedback, guys. When I get some time, I'll go back and take a look at those. We round out the central with...

 

The  Winnipeg Jets

This one should've been fairly obvious. Who better to do a white-out than Winnipeg? The Jets' beautiful new wordmark finds a home on the chest and the numbers find one on the shoulders. The jersey adopts a simple design to really let the white take hold, but shows some inspiration from the Jets inaugural look from the 1980s. The Jets use their current name and number font, but with the numbers in white and outlined in blue, matching the wordmark while again driving home the white-out theme. Winnipeg also adopts white gloves while using blue pants to help bring some balance to the set.

Definitely fits the whiteout look. Love the numbers as well.

My apologies for the unintended week and a half break. For awhile there, it looked like my laptop had breathed it's last, but we got her up and kicking again. So, in the spirit of recent events with my laptop, we're bringing the series back to life!

 

The Anaheim Ducks

 

Eggplant is the name of the game for Anaheim as they return to their original colors for Color Rush. The striping pattern draws from the infamous Wild Wing, paired with a matching hem stripe to keep things from going too crazy again. Modern Primary is recolored to match the old scheme and jade and eggplant are separated by white across the uniform set, from logos to striping to #OB to collar, consistency abounds. Not much more to say than that. An adaptation of an old favorite that leaves room for the old colors to truly shine.

Onward to Winnipeg!  PHOENIX! ARIZONA!

 

The Arizona Coyotes

Arizona follows Anaheim's lead by adapting another iconic alternate to fit today's design trends. The cactus green and stone orange return as does the angled hem striping of the old "Peyote Coyote". Black is replaced in the look by a darker green and the Arizona sunburst can be found sublimated on both the jersey and pants. The old 'Yotes wordmark returns to the helmet and the crescent moon shoulder patch finds a second life on the left shoulder only (there is only one moon after all). 

 

What do you guys think? This was one of my favourites to design so far!

Love it, but I think you should make the numbers the other sand colour from the logo.

That was something I looked at when I was putting it together, but it threw off the Color balance at bit more than would be desired. I’ll go back through my files and see if I saved a copy
