So the Griffins are doing their annual jersey design Contest again this year and last year despite being a fan favorite I didn't win so this year I'm back with a vengeance. I've come up with a couple new logos this year and I have a couple jersey designs I've come up with. AND here are the new Jerseys.(From left to right : Hockey News's Top Jersey of all time, AZ inspired, and Last years redux.) I went with red because the Griffins now have two black jerseys and a white and it just seems like the natural place to go. and just for comparison here's my entry from last year.
So, three years ago, I found out about the Grand Rapids Griffins alternate-jersey contest just before the deadline, enough time for me to draw a logo on paper but not enough to craft a full concept in a computer-graphics program. Then they haven't had the contest for *three years*, and all the while I've been chomping at the bit to enter my concept. Finally, I get my chance--but right in the middle of my moving from Minnesota to Alaska, followed by a week of intense graduate-school teacher training. Finally I get my entry together, with barely enough time to get any C&C in in time to enter. So, here's my entry: The logo is done. What I need help with mainly is the striping. I wanted to go traditional because of the Art Deco look of the logo, and I wanted to play off the Detroit RedWings' look without duplicating it. But have I gone too simple? Also, are the fonts working for the numbers and name on the jersey? Speedy replies much appreciated--the deadline is 8pm Alaska Time tomorrow! Thanks
