Today, I will be taking a break from the ABL so I could redesign the NAHL's Lakeland Jets, who played from 1990-1995 in Lakeland, Michigan. But why this team? My uncle played goalie for 2 seasons on this team before an injury ended his (junior) hockey career. He's still playing hockey, by the way. Primary Logo Secondary/Alternate Logo Logo and Wordmark Home Uniform Road Uniform Alternate/Third Uniform ("Michigan Pride", anybody?) I plan on making a throwback uniform, but I do not have the original logo with me right now. (it's not even on the internet, 90s NAHL/junior hockey stuff can be sought-after) As usual, C&C is appreciated.
I know one thing, I've been thinking of doing a WHL team for a while now, and the Kamloops Blazers' new alternate logo was the inspirational spark that got me off my ass and back in the mud again. For the hell of it, I shot for a striping pattern that's somewhere between the usual and something more distinctive...and then put flames on. Though their dark jerseys IRL have been blue, I went with orange. You may have noticed a Kamloops script appear here and there on the home/away set. I based the a and s on the main logo's flame, and for a minute I considered modifying the K to incorporate one before deciding against it. The British Columbia flag is what the jersey design is based on, the torso featuring wavy stripes and a partial Union Jack as the sleeve striping.
About a week ago I was looking at a few old concepts and decided to revisit one of em, from when I'd done a Quebec junior hockey mini-series a few years back. I'd done the Rimouski Oceanic, Drummondville Voltigeurs, Rouyn-Noranda Huskies, Quebec Remparts, and these guys, the Victoriaville Tigres. Les Tigres were the only ones I'd intended to revisit, as I'd wanted to tweak the bruised bananas a bit. And yes, for those who weren't around back in 09, the thirds here were inspired by Arsenal's infamous away shirt of the same moniker. The home/away striping uses the same V-obsessed pattern, then uses shrunken versions to create a take on Northwestern striping. I chose gold as the dark jersey simply for the hell of it. Of the other teams I'd mentioned doing a few years back, I might revisint Drummondville, cus Voltigeurs is a cool name, first of all, and secondly, I'd essentially managed a home/away design that was more contemporary than I thought it was, only to pair it with a third that "looked like every other hockey jersey ever." If I do, it'll mainly be to see to it that that doesn't happen again.
