NHL Brights Series

Recommended Posts

Well done...love some of the different color schemes, like the Ducks and especially the Thrashers. Something about that red Flames jersey with all the contrasting white is very appealing. Nice subtle use of lightning bolts on the Tampa Bay set.

Colorado looks good. I like the reversal of the traditional colour balance.

I see what you're trying to do with Columbus but I'm sorry, that colour scheme is wretch inducing.

We're at the halfway point in the NHL Brights Series. Here's team #20: the Cleveland Barons. They existed in the NHL from 1976 to 1978, and their look was rather traditional compared to the other teams that joined the NHL in the 70s. Mostly I swapped out black for white, added a shoulder yoke on the red jersey, changed the striping, and simplified their cluttered logo. C&C thanks!

Did you make that template?

I didn't make the template. It's Speedy's version 3 Edge template which can be found on the Templates thread. I modify the collars however but the jersey is his creation.

Today's concept is the Pittsburgh Penguins. With all the news about them returning to their rightful shade of Pittsburgh Gold as they debuted their new alternate jersey this month, I decided to do away with black and go with blue and Pittsburgh Gold. This ain't ever gonna happen in real life, but for the Brights series I figured this was worth trying... or is this too much now like Buffalo's color scheme? C&C thanks!

I didn't see Buffalo until you pointed it out. Now I can unsee it. The away jersey especially.

Sorry... I will point out that Buffalo's blue is lighter. These are more Buffaslug era colors.

Yeah, thats exactly as what I saw it as. A classier slug set.

For Pittsburgh you could try powder blue and yellow, with a little bit of black. That would mix it up from the powder/navy/white throwbacks they've worn.

My problem was getting a good balance of yellow and blue onto the white jersey. That's why the white jersey sorta ended up looking more Buffasluggy than anything. I'm pretty satisfied with the home jersey though.

Why not try the set with Vegas Gold then??? Navy and Vegas Gold always look good together. Vegas Gold can be counted as a bright colour, after all.

Next team: Montreal Canadiens. Doing Original 6 teams is tough... Boston went okay, but I feel like I dropped the ball on Toronto so far, because Toronto doesn't really have a lot going on with its two-tone jerseys... Montreal has some stuff you can work with though. I'll let this one mostly speak for itself. Tried to combine things that work on both the home and the away, namely the cheststripes. C&C thanks!

Yeah. What does it look like cheststripe-less on both?

Stripy was pretty much what I was going for though. That was the point.

Today we have the Winnipeg Jets. I decided to go with the current incarnation of the Jets for this series, as tempted as I was to use the 70s/80s Jets' branding. So for this concept, I eliminated the light blue, which kind of is superfluous to their color scheme, and focused mostly on navy blue and white. The striping/yoke is something some of you aren't going to agree with. My thinking was to go with more of a sharp, jetwing-like look. This was actually one of the toughest concepts to do, because of Winnipeg's limited branding history. C&C Thanks!
