- I still haven't come around to getting any good at doing jersey concepts via templates so I decided to do my project on NHL '18. - Due to the limited amounts of jersey styles, not all of these designs are 100% how I would have them if I had complete control over those aspects. - I have things pretty close to where I'd like them, and I will leave notes explaining any instance in which I would have liked something a bit different. - I didn't do every team in the league, only those that I felt had really bad jersey layouts, or needed a color change / tweak. - I tried to eliminate white from most of the uniforms because I wanted to do things a bit different and white just seems like too easy of a security blanket to use. - Teams are in alphabetical order - - - - - ANAHEIM DUCKS (Edited 4/29/18) * Lightened the green / changed alternate to have more orange in it. * Made the lines thinner so that the away jersey wouldn't have a different thickness compared to the other two. (Edited 5/1/18) * Gave the alternate green in the glove, and on the helmet for the manufacturer name. (Edited 5/4/18) * Added white. * Due to adding white, I darkened the green. NOTES: - I have seen at least 2, maybe more concepts for the Ducks that have used green and orange. I tried to run with that, and create a new identity for Anaheim. PROBLEMS DUE TO THE LACK OF OPTIONS IN THE GAME: - The teams original logo is not available to use in customization, so I wasn't able to play around with that and was forced to use their current "Webbed D". - I tried implementing white into the Home and Alternate, but just couldn't really find the right fit. This may have been due to the limited jersey styles, and I couldn't quite get the thickness of the white lines that I wanted. ARIZONA COYOTES (Edited 5/1/18) * Added more of the dark red to the home with thin lines. * Gave the alternate a logo with the sand colored outline. (Edited 5/4/18) * Added white. NOTES: - I wanted to go with the sand color as the primary to give the Coyotes a unique look and go outside the norm. Some will probably argue that the alternate should be the home, but I like it this way. PROBLEMS DUE TO THE LACK OF OPTIONS IN THE GAME: - As with the Ducks, the teams original logo (the standing coyote) isn't available to customize, but I actually think the current logo fits nice with the way the jersey is set up here. BUFFALO SABRES NOTES: - For the Sabres, I wanted to create a new identity with the color scheme, while using the original logo to keep the team grounded in their history. - The colors of the "San Diego Rampage" were used. Dark blue, grey, and white. CALGARY FLAMES NOTES: - I brightened the red, and mellowed the yellow..... - The home jersey now features a yellow C - I wanted to alter the Flames because I hate the fact that they have now gone with a black C, and while I love the original jersey design and colors from the 80's (and before via the Atlanta Flames) through early 90's... I wanted to give my own spin on this classic look with different shades of the teams colors. COLUMBUS BLUE JACKETS NOTES: - I'm not a fan of the Blue Jackets current logo, jersey or color scheme (becoming the 5th team in the league to use red, white and blue), but since NHL 18 has this jersey (the old Might Ducks layout?) I thought it would fit their logo pretty well. - I smoothed out the logo some, trying to make it a little better. Maybe it's better? It's definitely different than before. PROBLEMS DUE TO THE LACK OF OPTIONS IN THE GAME: - There is only the one logo to chose from, and none of the custom logos made for a good Blue Jackets theme. Would have loved to use the cannon logo, but at the same time, that one wouldn't go so great with the jersey style. (Edited 5/4/18) * Revamped the entire jersey with more white on the home, thickened the lines on away to match. * Lightened the blue. FLORIDA PANTHERS NOTES: - Not a fan of the new 'Montreal-type' jerseys they went with, so I started messing around and found a style that I really liked. - I wanted to switch over to orange for the Panthers because well.... Florida Oranges! - I may go back and swap out the orange for the red that they use, I mean the Islanders and Oilers already use blue and orange, but I couldn't help myself here, I just love the shades I used, could just be me though. LOS ANGELES KINGS NOTES: - Pretty obvious here that I implemented purple back into the color scheme and changed the jersey style from the current one the team uses. MINNESOTA WILD NOTES: - Nothing to really say except since I don't really like the Wild's new "Montreal Style" jersey, I tried to give them a better, more balanced look. NEW JERSEY DEVILS NOTES: - There is just something about the Devil's uniforms that I don't like so I wanted to put my spin on things. - I went with the white logo on the home because I feel it balances out the entire uniform the way I have it set up... I'm not sure how this is going to go over though. - The alternate jersey feature a brighter red than the home and away. This jersey went over really well with Devil's fans on the Facebook hockey group I'm a part of. PROBLEMS DUE TO THE LACK OF OPTIONS IN THE GAME: - Back to the logo. I went with the white logo because of the balance. I wanted to have a thicker outline around the RED devil at first, but the game just didn't allow it. The outline that they do allow is just way too thin, and I couldn't find any look that was balanced. OTTAWA SENATORS NOTES: - I wanted to go for a look that would say the Senators are trying to be taken seriously from here on out, and want a brand refresh. I also didn't want to have more bright colored red (New Jersey, Calgary, Carolina, Detroit, Montreal, Chicago already have that *I left out Florida and Washington, because in my universe I have changed their colors), so I decided to go with a black home, and have the dark red as an alternate. - I chose the "O" logo because I felt it completed the overall look that I was going for. PHILADELPHIA FLYERS NOTES: - I'm a Flyers fan, and while I respect the fact that the team likes to pay homage to the old school Flyer teams, and manage to keep their jersey styles in that same sort of tradition... I don't think they use nearly enough black, especially for a team that the local media and fan-base call by one of their nicknames "the orange and black". Here is my take on what I would personally like to see... - I love the alternate I came up with, but I can also see if it doesn't go over too well due to the alternation of the logo. - I also changed the shade of orange, it's now less "traffic cone orange"... SAN JOSE SHARKS NOTES: - For the Sharks look, I went outside the norm here. For me, I love it. For probably most traditional people, they will probably hate it. - The jersey now becomes the background of the uniform, and the pants, gloves, helmet, and some of the logo become the focal point of the entire thing. This might bring jersey sales down, but I'm sure they could come up with some way to counter-balance that.... ST. LOUIS BLUES NOTES: - I really was just messing around with different combinations of blue and yellow, and this is what I settled on. I'm not a fan of the real life blues jersey, and I feel that these ones compliment the logo better, but I could be wrong. TAMPA BAY LIGHTNING NOTES: - I wanted to get the Lightning away from the (pretty much) same shade of blue as the Maple Leafs. Not to mention they both only use blue and white. - Personally, the the blue might seem too "soft", but the way it's displayed in the game, it really pops. - I kept the jerseys as close to the same exact ones they real club uses. VANCOUVER CANUCKS NOTES: - Added a little more white to the uniform, and had put green around the logo, plus switched the jersey up a bit. - I kept trying the other logos and dark blue pants but ultimately decided this setup looked the best. WASHINGTON CAPITALS NOTES: - Got rid of the overused red white and blue scheme and took the Capitals back to the days of when they had blue and gold. - The "Weagle" didn't look right, and although the flying eagle has its flaws (only one leg) it still evokes movement and looks the best out of the game-supplied logos.
Hello and welcome to the third installment of my "Yet Another" Series of concepts! Previously, I tackled the NFL and an MLB-to-Football Crossover series. Today, I bring to you "Yet Another Crossover Series" (YACS, for short), this time being an NHL-to-Football crossover. Credit to Conrad for the fonts and several others as references for the template. One thing I do ask from you as the community is some honest comments, criticism, etc. One-liners such as "kewl concepts do Team X next" will not be replied to and, quite frankly, are not helpful. Before anyone asks, I will post alternate uniforms after all the main jerseys have been posted, just like with the MLB Crossover thread. Without further ado, here are the first four teams in alphabetical order, starting with the... ANAHEIM DUCKS: Not too much to say about the Ducks. The reason for the logo change was because I felt the bronze/gold muddied up the look, so I cleaned it up by putting white in its place and limiting the bronze/gold to just being a trim color. The jersey striping is loosely based on the team's orange alternate. Potential alternate: Definitely a Mighty Ducks throwback, though expect the MD logo to be used and not the duck mask logo. ARIZONA COYOTES: For the longest time, I couldn't for the life of me figure out what I was going to do with this team. I thought about using the state flag as inspiration but I already did that with my Arizona Cardinals concept in my NFL thread. So, I looked at the team's uniform history. The answer lied within the team's inaugural set. So, I used the striping as inspiration in this fauxback-style package. The home uniform didn't look good with the maroon or white pants, but the road did, so I limited those pants options to the road jersey. Potential alternate: Throwback to the 90's alternate w/ the desert scene. BOSTON BRUINS: I almost went with brown over black and I still might by going back and changing out the two. Nonetheless, I'm happy with how this came out. The numbers looked better with only one outline rather than two like the actual uniforms, so I ran with it. The logo on the jersey is placed similarly to how the Steelers place their logos, being off to the side rather than the center of the chest. Not much else to say as this is one of the cleaner sets in the series. Potential alternate: Either a 30's throwback or a brown version of this set. BUFFALO SABRES: Man, if the Sabres were a football team, Buffaslug wouldn't have been received so harshly... okay, maybe it would have. BUT, it would've looked much better on a football helmet. For this set, classic meets modern. With the lack of white in the set, the buffalo had to be either gold or silver. As you can see, I chose gold. The jersey striping is a mishmash of the royal alternate and the current home. The crossed swords worked extremely well as a chest logo. I'm not sold on the buffalo and I'm considering recoloring the old black-and-red buffalo Potential alternate: A Royal blue version of the updated set shown below. _____________________________________________________________________________________________________ Up next: Flames, Hurricanes, Blackhawks, and Avalanche. .As always, C+C is always appreciated. This has been a long time coming and I'm so happy I can finally share it with you all!
