Seattle Sockeye (Secondary Logo and Jerseys Added 6/8)

Recommended Posts

Man! All of these blew me away, but the third red and the second white jerseys are my favorites.

 

I'm not a fan of using two separate shoulder logos on the same jersey. If you pulled an Arizona/Minnesota and used one logo on the home and one on the road, that could work. Other than that tiny detail I have no complaints.

 

Great stuff! I'm curious what an alternate would look like.

Thanks for the input.

I created two alternate options based on the original Metropolitans with the colour scheme.

Which uniform set is better?

I'd really love some more C&C!

To illustrate how the logo stacks up against other NHL logos, here it is on the Sportslogos.net page:

To hopefully spark more comments, here's the inaugural season logo I created:

And here it is on both uniform options:

What do you think? C&C Appreciated!

Here's a mockup of Danny DeKeyser in a Kraken uniform...

And a screenshot of the NHL Shop...

What do you think? C&C appreciated!

Seeing the mock-up, I think it would be better if the numbers had a dual outline so they went white-black-teal to be an inverse of the stripes, rather than the simple white-teal single outline you have now.

 

Adding the suction cups to the socks might be a positive as well. Since the striping everywhere else has them. I know Carolina doesn’t do Awakening flags on the socks, but they don’t do them on the arms either, so it provides a sort of precedent that’s missing here.

Thanks for the feedback. I'll try out the dual outlines, but I don't think the sock sublimation is possible (see Vegas).

 

For now, here's a mockup of center ice:

And a screeenshot of the Kraken Twitter page:

I'd also like more feedback on the alternate jersey options.

I'd say set one as well. As much as I hate teams using the same color for their home and alternate, I think its necessary here. Though its a great accent color something about the seafoam/teal makes it look cheap when its used as a jersey's base

I had no idea how many details you had hidden in the logo before this post. It makes it that much more creative!

 

Just to throw something out there, if you're looking for more ideas, I'm curious what a Winter Classic/Stadium Series set would look like.

Vancouver-Seattle would make a great outdoor game matchup.

Nice presentation!  Lol.  I hadn't checked in on this thread in a while, so I was very surprised to see that you went with my suggestion for the center tine of the trident as the Space Needle.  I don't know that I like it now that I see it, lol!  What if instead of an accurate Space Needle topper, you went with a more representational version?  Specifically, taking the topper part of the Space Needle and stretching it down to where the widest part of the topper is where the wide part of the tine would be.  It'll be distorted from being purely recognizable, but it might look more like it's naturally part of the trident. 

 

Overall, though, I love what you've done and I most especially love the color selection.

Red Teal Black

 

Dark Green Lime Green Yellow

 

But of the two, I'd still stick with Red Teal Black, because there's no other color combo like it in the NHL or any other sport, really.  I'm lime-greened out, to be honest.  

 

If you want to keep experimenting, I'd play around with shades of red teal and black to see if you stumble across a combo that addresses whatever it is that's niggling at your design sense.

Dark Green Yellow and Lime Green Blue Grey are miles above the others. Too much red and black in the league. And you can’t make it teal because of San Jose. Dark Green and yellow suits the city of Seattle much better

When I see the Red Teal Black combo, in no way whatsoever does my brain see any of the red teams, the black teams or San Jose.   There will never be a time when you're squinting and wondering if you're looking at the Stars, or the Wild, or maybe a Whalers jersey.

I find it bad that I can already name the Canes, Devils, Blackhawks, Flames, Red wings, Avs, Coyotes, Caps, Habs, Senators, and Panthers as teams that have them. Those 11 teams are a third of the NHL, why add another when theirs only two green teams and green suits Seattle. Atleast make it teal. Theres only one of those
