Hello all! After a short break to refill my inspiration, and a failed attempt at creating a WCH 2016 redesign, I'm back with a new personal logo, and a new concept for the New York Islanders. First, some backstory. The Isles have a storied and long history, being formed in 1972 as a way for the NHL to keep the WHA out of New York. The team rose from being at the bottom of the standings to winning the Stanley Cup in less than 10 years, and won the trophy 4 times in a row, which is a feat that hasn't been accomplished in any major North American sports league since. The team's logo was rumored to have been designed by the owners' wives, then touched up by an official designer. The logo has a lot of meaning, with Long Island, a nod to the team's 4 Stanley Cups, 'NY' for New York, a hockey stick, and the team's name. The logo is a bit outdated, in my opinion. I went with a simplified version of the logo, that plays off of the Isles' current alternate logo. The uniforms are also somewhat designed off of the previous ones, but with a more modern and touched up feel. I added a shoulder yoke, and the "signature" Adidas armpit stripes. The alternate is the 2nd orange alternate the Islanders have worn, but the first with a traditional feel to it. The four blue stripes on the alternate call back to the team's 4th Stanley Cup. Let me know what you think!
As we all know, the NHL will most likely get a make over in 2017 when Adidas takes over the league's uniforms. Whether this means the complete demolition of the jerseys we have now, little tweaks, or no changes, we don't know. I see it as a way for Adidas to fix the NHL's jerseys, and I have done so with this series. Teams that I see have perfect sets of home, away, and alternate jerseys (such as the St. Louis Blues) won't be redesigned. Rather than releasing jerseys one at a time, I will be releasing them in sets of 8. LEAGUE LOGO: After the NHL's 100th season takes place in 2016-2017, Adidas will take over. I thought that the NHL may try to move into a modern and classic identity, which the league's new logo does. The shield shape and angle of the "NHL" acronym matches that of the league's longstanding design before current commissioner Gary Bettman's reign. The gradient of the current logo is removed, replaced with a simpler white color, and spaces are inserted in the space between the shield and the lines that contain the acronym. The logo has been implemented in all teams' jersey presentations. ANAHEIM DUCKS: The Anaheim Ducks unveiled beautiful alternate jerseys at the beginning of the 2015-2016 season, that featured a recolored version of the Mighty Ducks logo, a primarily orange jersey, with detailed striping on the waist and arms. These jerseys build on that, featuring a logo mixing the current Ducks era and the older Mighty Ducks era, adding a white jersey based on the orange one unveiled this summer. A classic, yet modern, jersey that fits well with the Ducks current and older identity, is what I hope Adidas has in store for us, in 2017. ARIZONA COYOTES: The Arizona Coyotes also unveiled new jerseys this summer, replacing their previous brick-red and bland uniforms with a newer set, which some call ugly for the complicated arm striping and the big block of black that hangs on the shoulders of the jerseys, I fixed all those issues, and also reintroduced hunter green into the Coyotes color scheme, using highlights of hunter green inside the Coyote's head and the striping on the home and away jerseys. On the alternate, I used an unused Coyotes design from the 1990's, highlighting hunter green and the Kachina-art style on the waist and arms of the jersey. BUFFALO SABRES: The Buffalo Sabres currently have a mix of past and current eras, using a throwback to their initial era, along with navy blue and armpit piping. While the current jerseys are decent, many fans dislike them for the armpit piping and navy blue color. Both issues are rectified in this redesign, going back to the original blue and striping patterns. The alternate is a bit of a modern throwback, using yellow as the team's main color, which the team has never done before. The alternate features stripes on the shoulders and arms that are navy blue and white, effectively keeping navy blue as a tertiary color in the Sabres color scheme. CALGARY FLAMES: Nearly all hockey uniform fans dislike the current Flames jerseys and logo, for the unnecessary black outlines and the terrible piping style the team uses. These jerseys rectify both issues, eliminating black from the team's color scheme, using yellow instead, and having no piping on the jersey at all. Yellow is more prominent on the uniforms, with it being one of the primary colors both in the logo and the uniforms. The jerseys are a throwback to the Flames' older styles, which were brought from Atlanta before relocation, and stuck around until the mid-1990's. CAROLINA HURRICANES: The Carolina Hurricanes had an identity that lasted from their relocation to the Carolinas to 2013, when they unveiled modern-yet-bland uniforms. The only remaining part of the identity they built is on the alternate jersey, which is the only jersey to use the warning-flag pattern that made the Hurricanes famous. With these uniforms, I combine the modern and past identities, and the alternate is a Reebok-esque version of the current alternate, but utilizing more red than the current jersey.
