Mighty Ducks mixture

Recommended Posts

One thing I liked about the old Mighty Ducks alts was the letter and number scheme. I wondered what it would look like on the current uniforms, so I gave it a try:

Comments and criticism welcome.

YES, YES, YES! Rock it, RC! :notworthy:

Um... any chance we'll see that font available on your site any time soon? (wink-wink, nudge-nudge) :hockeysmiley:

I like it on the alt, but it doesn't seem to fit with the diagonal striping on the home/away.

All I did was translate the Wild's number font to this. The only numbers I have so far are the 1 and 5 (and thus I was too lazy and decided to go with Lupul.) But I do intend on making the rest (but the 5 was actually hard enough on it's own.

I'd love to own the old white alternate jersey. Even though it wasn't a great jersey to use on the ice, it made a good fashion jersey.

My mum has that old white alternate ? I felt it was a better looking jersey to the diagonal striping one.

And the "Anaheim" alt still makes me think Kings not Ducks.

But Futura Bold Condensed is a really good font for plenty of uses. Hockey jerseys are no exception.

Oh and I'm pretty sure it's illegal to repackage it and offer it for free, since it's still owned by Paul Renner's estate, and is currently selling for around 50 US dollars.

So are these guys breaking the law?

I know one thing, if the Wild Wing jersey had used that number font, it would have been around considerably longer than it was...I keep tellin ya, it wasn't that bad-the lettering was just illegible :hockeysmiley:

RC... just a thought, try using the Steelers' font. I always thought that the Ducks' alt looked more like the Steelers' font, without being italicized ever so slightly. It may need a little thickening as well, now that I think about it...

I've never really understood how Fonts101 get away with doing what they do. If anyone knows, let me know!

It does *seem* to me that they're breaking the law.

Awesome. I miss those alts. They should have just adopted them.

Awesome. The font kinda reminds me of the one on the Nike alts that they wore for a while.

Those numbers would certainly look better than the current block lettering. I have the old white alt and really want to get it customized. It's just a better looking jersey than what they have, I think, all around.

I'm not confused about what it looks like...

Roger already said that's what he used for his concept in ol' post numero uno. There's a reason why those numbers "kinda" reminded you of the alts used by the Ducks in the late 90s.

Yeah, my glasses are dirty. I couldn't see that part.
