  1. The Chicago Blackhawks Between the Stadium Series, Winter Classics, and their primaries, the Hawks have experimented with about every red, black, and white design they can try. The Chicago Flag offers another color for appropriate use. Here the Hawks adopt a city inspired alternate which a black base (they are the BLACKhawks) after all.
  2. The Vegas Golden Knights The Golden Knights will reportedly be adopting a bright gold alternate in the 2020-21 Season. Here, expectation becomes reality with a minimalist primary logo and arm-striping forming a subtle V as a callback to the city the Knights call home.
  3. The Los Angeles Kings Its frankly criminal that they beautiful Kings purple is suddenly found nowhere in their scheme. By adopting a purple alternate, the Kings inject some colour into their look and pay tribute to their past through the inclusion of a previously-unused primary logo.
  4. Kicking off a new series now that Summer has started! I was originally going to build off my NHL Refresh 2.0 series that I finished up a few weeks back, but instead decided to make my life a bit more difficult by coming up with designs that would work as alternates with each team's current set. In this series, I hope to bring focus to teams' secondary logos and colors by creating fresh designs that still fit within each current brand. This may include the addition of new colours, or even logos, into each teams scheme for the purpose of these alternates. Anyway, let's get started... Don't have a particular order in mind. Planning to go wherever inspiration hits and perhaps listen to some suggestions of who you'd like to see first. The Philadelphia Flyers The Flyers current black alternate just isn't enough. Rather than correct the smaller details of their 2017 Stadium Series look, they've adopted it as a full-time third warts and all. Here, the black alt gets a little more care, with a full-length yoke and striping inspired by the wings of the primary logo.
  5. And just like that, we're onto our 31th team... The Nashville Predators Nashville has decided that bold in gold is the identity they want to go for and, while I didn't agree with it at the time, I think it has served them well. Separating white and gold, however, is not something they've done well. The guitar pick shoulder patch has been simplified to just the Tennessee flag icon with the road yoke mimicking the flag while swapping red for gold. 31 teams in the books, let me know what you think! I'll be going back through the league to edit each look and mock it up on a 3D template with the potential addition of alternates for each team.
  6. The Winnipeg Jets I've done a lot of Jet's concepts centered around adding red, but none with a focus on silver. So that's where the series takes us today. The sleeves on the home are inspired by the design of a Canadian Air Force fighter jet with the road adjusted for color balance. Used a new font for the jets to better match the military inspiration than their typical round italics.
  7. The Minnesota Wild Original logos all around here. Started by making an M out of the North Stars' N and one thing led to another. Primary is a simple W built out of the North Stars' N with a tree detail in the negative space. Figured it was a fun Idea to hint at the team name just as the North Stars did. Ended up with a faux-vintage look fitting of the upcoming Winter Classic and a cream road sweater because... after all, this series is about pushing the boundaries. Let me know what you think!
  8. The Colorado Avalanche Like with Buffalo, I've re-purposed an old color rush concept into a full set here. Seeing as the Avalanche are literally named after snow, its only fair to have them lean into white. Rather than reliance on the mountain striping, I've adopted their alternate Rockies logo to full time status and used its snow-capped speak to set the tone for the color balance on each jersey. Whaddya think?
  9. Thanks for the feedback! I think what I’ve decided to do once I’m through all 31 teams (which is not too far off) is apply some of the feedback and put together a home/road/alt set on a more photorealistic template. When that happens, I think the Vegas black is going to become an alternate and I’ll explore a different idea on the primaries. Went ahead and swapped out the numbers on the home too since its a simple and pretty clear improvement.
  10. The Anaheim Ducks The Ducks have an identity crisis on their hands. They've kept their Reebok rebrand while slowly teasing a transition back to their original identity with their alternate. Rather than have the two compete, I figured I would marry the two. Took the orange and black from the current look and melded it with the jade and logo of the original identity. Wasn't really sure where I was headed with this beyond that, but I'm really happy with the final results. Let me know what you think.
  11. Thank looks wonderful! I’d buy that black alt in a second
  12. These are fantastic! Love all of these for the Giants! Home/Away: Both look great! That San Francisco script is simply incredibly and now I'm ashamed they don't currently use it. Alternates: I don't think you need new caps for the alternates. I think the normal home and away caps would be just as effective. Have you tried swapping the grey on the road black jersey for cream? I think that'd look really slick and might fix the misgivings you currently have with the look. Spring Training: Don't most teams just have one uniform for spring training? If so, I think your orange uni with the black Spring Training cap is a winner.Keeps a color pop while putting a new hat logo out there for fans
  13. The Chicago Blackhawks If it ain't broke, blow it up! The Blackhawks have one of best looks in the NHL, arguably even the best, but that doesn't make for very interesting concepts. So we do something entirely different. I'm honestly surprised no one in the league uses shoulder striping. In my mind it creates a nice vintage/modern combined look. Messing with perfection is always going to mess with people, but overall I'm quite happy with how they turned out.
  14. The Vegas Golden Knights I'd like to see a gold Golden Knights jersey as much as the next guy, but we've all seen hundreds of concepts like that already (I've even made two myself). Since the idea here is to go against the grain, I decided to push Vegas in a different direction. The home is meant to resemble the Vegas Nights side of the Knights with a black backdrop and neon inspired striping. I found using black really gave Vegas' secondary colors a nice backdrop to pop off of. The away matches this look and keeps the dark shoulders. In my mind, the black seems to function much better and likely works as a more serviceable alternate than a home in a set, but I still figured it was worth pushing the creativity on. What about you guys? What do you think?
  15. I think both would be redundant. The implicit S and F would make up South Florida, with the Flamingo itself standing for Flamingos
  16. I'm from Dallas and grew watching games at the AAC, so I know we're you're coming from. Glad you like it! Was a lot of fun to work through. It's a crime they don't use Texas shoulder patches anymore
  17. Thanks! 'd love to take credit for the Star-A but that's another hold over from the Winter Classic design as well
  18. The Buffalo Sabres The home in this set is unchanged from my Color Rush series from last year except for some collar changes. It's one I've really wanted to make a full set out of, so we finally get the change here. Road moves around some stripes and keeps the shoulder horns inspired by the goat head jerseys and TV number Sabres inspired by the captains patches of the ill-fated turdburger. I still thing I prefer the home to the road, but I think both work well enough to serve as a set. What about you guys? I'd love to hear your thoughts.
  19. The Dallas Stars Drew a lot of inspiration from the Winter Classic look to create a fauxback look for Dallas. Broke up the primary logo into a diagonal wordmark, extended the thin yoke into a full-length lenght yoke and moved the Texas arm patch to the shoulders. Pants and gloves are now the same canvas color of the original WC gloves instead of being differing canvas and leather shades. Definitely stepped out of the box on this one. Let me know what you think!
  20. Thanks! That was exactly my intent with that one
  21. The Montreal Canadiens Montreal's Winter Classic jersey exposed a color pallet too good to ignore.The lighter blue really pops against the red and creates a fresh look distinct from all the other red, white, and blue teams the league. Chest stripe moves to the road as well to break up one of the more plain jerseys in the league.
  22. The Toronto Maple Leafs Toronto is one of the few Original 6 teams that hasn't been afraid of tweaking their look to stay with the times. Their 1970-90s look is one of there lesser known looks, so I thought it would be fun to bring that into the modern era. The primary logo gets deconstructed with a plain maple leaf on the chest with the "Toronto" test pulled out and placed above. Shoulder patches mirror the plain maple leaf on the chest but in a contrasting color. Not the most groundbreaking look, but I quite enjoy how clean it looks when its all said and done.
  23. Fight well enough and they might just add you to the team. Happy to hear you like it!
  24. Glad to hear it! I can certainly get around to mocking that up
  25. The Columbus Blue Jackets I've always been in favor of flag-based striping for the Blue Jackets, but it seems redundant with a flag-based logo. To fix that, the shoulder and chest logos are swapped with the alternate cannon logo taking center stage. Much like the Devils concept, using the same striping to create two unique looks here with the extended yoke on the road and cuff striping on the home. This may be my favorite of the series thus far. Let me know what you think!
