  1. I say this with great respect - you're a better designer than this. I think if you really wanted to go with the stripes, something like what Northwestern did would be a vast improvement than trying to translate a mid-chest stripe to the upper chest/shoulders. I also don't feel the mish-mash of styles works as well - this is from the Senators' 'Heritage' jersey collection while the (leaves?) fit the more Roman-esque version. It does not feel cohesive to me.
  2. These look really good overall. However (you knew it was coming!) Again I will preface, these are just my own personal preferences. - Drop the chest logo (just clutters up the jersey) - Add the S logo to the sleeves (IMO, one of the best secondary logos in NHL history) - Drop the gray pants (you already have black, red, white, gold - this isn't Toronto or Detroit. PLENTY of colours to pick from/work with already)
  3. These are your concepts, so I totally get it. I just find that chest badges clutter things up and take away from the overall design. Adding some of the logos as patches on the outside shoulders (a la Ravens) would look sharp. Again - it all depends on what you're trying to accomplish. Are these football jerseys that are inspired by NHL teams or are they hockey jerseys being translated to football? It seems minor but it's a big difference - large front logos or sleeve numbers are more of the hockey aesthetic (unless you count the CFL's attempts at 3rd jerseys) while shoulder numbers, front numbers, sleeve badges are more of the football aesthetic. Overall, you've done a great job in your designs and presentation. These are just my particularities in sports design.
  4. Other than the logo (which is no fault of your own), I think this looks tremendous. Really like what you've done here - bringing gold back into the colour scheme without overpowering it.
  5. Maybe it's because it would start moving these more towards football jerseys of hockey teams vs hockey inspired football jerseys (if that makes sense). The quality of the designs is top notch. My only two gripes: - Forcing sleeve numbers in small areas when there is a ton of room for shoulder numbers. I get it that it is more of a "hockey aesthetic" but it just seems to lose the function of the sleeve/shoulder (tv) numbers when they're THAT small. It feels like some of the designs translate better on the "fan" version vs the "player" version. - The constant barrage of chest logo badges. This should be more the exception than the rule. For some teams, a wordmark above the front number would work. Full blown logos seem to clutter things up. I am very interested in seeing what is in store for the Senators. I am curious to see if an attempt at a Roman helmet will be made.
  6. Overall, these are really well done. However, I don't think you really need the logo patch on the chest and the shoulder badges are a bit big.
  7. Really sharp update on QC. I think the FDL's bring something unique/texture-like (maybe not the right way to put it but I can't think of another way to describe it) to it without overpowering the rest of the design. Even if you removed the logo, someone would be able to determine which team that the jersey is for - which makes it iconic. So well done.
  8. It is a subtle difference (the shield/football shape) but once you see it, you can't unsee it. The design team really dropped the proverbial ball on this as that's almost a given for a lot of team logos. Team mascot + (insert sport ball/bat/stick). Nice job on doing what the pro's should have done in the first place. Definite improvement.
  9. Hey man, it's your show. We're just here to see what you come up with. Good point on Atlanta.
  10. Another really good solution. Out of curiousity, looked up the population for each Houston - 6.9M Atlanta - 6.0M Orlando - 2.6M
  11. I can understand the overall predicament and I think you've done a nice job overall in balancing things out. You might be able to achieve a similar result if you were to have a team based in Houston instead of Orlando while retaining the same division breakdowns. For being such a large state, it feels like it could support two NHL teams and you're not throwing the balance out that you've worked hard to achieve. Portland, Quebec and San Diego are all good choices and align well geographically. Regardless of which direction you go, I am looking forward to seeing what you come up with.
  12. Hoping that this is not the end. Would love to see some expansion teams.
  13. Also.. you have to stop working on this until you've seen 'Semi-Pro', you jive turkey.
  14. I had been thinking of just straight 'OVO' style old gold on black (home) and black on old gold (away). This way if you went a "bottom left" type of colour scheme for Owen Sound, it would differentiate the two teams. Removing white in the jersey design would be reminiscent of the Senator's new-ish re-design. It also is a direct call back to the car. The flame on that gear should match the lines (in my opinion) of the birds wings.
  15. Yes - see Arizona State https://images.app.goo.gl/Tmy1oub31CTGtXz37 I don't love the design but the concept is similar enough.
  16. nah.. I was thinking like black on black or red on red.. sublimated. It's subtle, kind of like Oklahoma State has the barbed wire elements in their uniforms.
  17. Love the Tillman throwback. Great job there. I really like the overall set except for that odd salute to the flag alternate. Just doesn't really work for me. For the black, I'd go cardinal red on black without the white. Lean into the blackout but keep the red. What's the point of a team being called the "Cardinals" if you don't have cardinal red.
  18. Really not digging this Texas Tech concept. There are a lot of similarities to Ohio State without being OSU. The silver on white with subtle red accents just doesn't really seem to work. It also seems unbalanced because Silver isn't included anywhere else. Just seems a bit forced. With two minutes of research, I can see that Texas Tech already has its own history and has previously used a black on black throwback. It's a great look and I don't think you really need to reference the Falcons because TT already has this in their own history. What might be a cool feature is a sublimated star on the sleeves and using shoulder numbers. TT has tried to do Texas themed jerseys in the past. This would be a nod to that but more subtle. It would be a nod to the past but bringing in something a little more unique/modern to help attract the young recruits. It might work.. it might not.
  19. I hadn't heard about this but this is a fantastic concept. My only concern is that it seems to be connected to the Jets although the colour scheme says otherwise.
  20. It is minor league... I think you could have two exhaust pipes create opposing F's (FF). Maybe re-create the Pontiac Firebird logo but in the styling of the old Washington Capitals eagle. https://images.app.goo.gl/2yUEEYvm5vubSqKBA I don't think that you have a black/vegas gold team right now, so it would change things up from the usual red/blue or blue/red. For the orange - I would go with a "Semi-Pro/Flint Tropics" themed alternate BUT... do a much better job than what the Firebirds actually did. Because theirs looked like a crappy practice jersey. It isn't often that a fake team from your town is arguably more popular than your actual team. It's minor league - better to have some fun with it.
  21. I think that you need to work on this one. Flint calls itself "Vehicle City" and I have to imagine that the team is called the Firebirds because of the Pontiac Firebird. So I would lean into that with the logo, bringing in the muscle car inspiration, etc. They are mostly known for the gold on black or black on red. I like the orange but it just feels like a missed opportunity to really flesh out this identity.
  22. This is probably intentional but it's like if the Golden State Warriors and the Swedish hockey team decided to have a kid together. I am personally a fan of it and find the gold jersey to be really really sharp.
  23. What would the rams Blue jerseys look like with a white outline on the numbers? I feel like it would pop and make it fresh/modern while still nodding to the past. I don't love the orange gradient by any means (even compared to what they did introduce) but if you're going to use it, it feels like it should be incorporated in some other places.
  24. I would consider the gray as the inner outline to the jersey numbers and in the collar. Otherwise I think this is a really good look.
