FSU Hockey Concept (Inkscape)

Recommended Posts

Hi guys/gals,

My name is Connor, and I'm new to these boards. I've been "lurking" for a long time, but I finally decided to make an account after being inspired by my friend Michael, who you might know as Raysox. He's amazing at what he does, and looking at his concepts made me want to do mine.

After playing around in Inkscape for a couple of days, I've finally done something that seems respectable enough to post here. I'll give you fair warning: this is my FIRST concept, and Michael did help me out a lot. That being said, I'd love to hear what you all think about it! I worked hard on it. Now a little background.

Here at Florida State, football is the main sport. Our hockey team is intramural, and they travel away from Tallahassee for their practices and games. We don't have an ice-rink in Tallahassee, but I believe the new mall currently in construction will include one. Anyway, the jerseys the team wears right now are very simple. They're not bad looking, but I think they need an update. I'm not qualified for that, but I created what I think might look nice.

I know it's simple, but that's because I'm still learning how to use the program, and I don't want to be overly ambitious. Let me know what you think! Thanks to Conrad for the Glades Bold font, and Raysox for the help.

The stripes on the sleeves should match the hem stripes but this is a very good concept execution wise.

This is good! I would like to see an away or an alternate, but this is a good start.

First and foremost, welcome to the Boards! Always a good thing to see new people posting concepts around here.

This is a really classy look! My only critique is that the name plate seems a little too big. You could either make the name smaller or the number larger to make it not seem so large across the back.

I'm a miami fan The U. but these are nice but use the design on the football jerseys shoulders on the hockey jersey

Hey everyone. Thanks for your comments. I'll make some changes a bit later. Right now I'm recovering from a bad sunburn...

Welcome aboard connor...there can be only one. If you're just starting out, I'd...well, I wouldn't completely junk Pelicans' suggestion, but if I were you I'd keep it in mind for when you have more of a hang of this. Patterns like FSU's new one and Oregon's wings are among the reasons I haven't restarted College to Pro yet. Another thing you'll probably fix in the future, the sleeve numbers on the viewer's right hand side are backwards. Overall, a nice starter concept though.

Don't have much to add to what others have already said. Your crest does take up an incredible amount of real estate but that's just nitpickness you'll learn to adopt over time.

Hope you like the boards.

Hi all,

So I took your comments and fixed up the home jersey, and also tried an away jersey while I was at it. Let me know what you think of these, and then I'll fix them and get started on an alternate jersey! Not sure about the sleeves and the side detail of the away jersey. Tried a couple of different things and none of them looked exactly right. Also, the sock looks a little weird, but lets just say it's the "unconquered flame".

Here's the home jersey with the current font "Unconquered". I think I like the old font better, but I might not have the nameplate the right size to make it look good. I also shrunk the logo on the front a little.

I like the one above^. It's much more simple and I like that font a lot better. Nice work.

Thank you. I like the newer home better as well! Does anyone like the away? I might scrap it and do something closer to the home.

Forgive me. What do you mean when you say you can see the leaves? Also, I'm gonna try an alternate/throwback jersey tomorrow!
