Capitals Concept

Recommended Posts

I have not posted a concept in a while, thought I would have a little fun with my favorite team. There are a lot of things thrown into this concept. You can see a little Sharks, old Jets, even a little USA. The logo is just a modified version of the current secondary logo. I am dying to see the new uniforms. Until then, I will make my own.

The only part I DON'T like is that the side panel keeps the bottom stripe from going all the way around. Other than that, these look great.

BTW, the Sharks and Jets reference made me think of "West Side Story". Does that make me really old?

I agree with the stripes, they should go all the way around.

and the West Side Story comment, i've had to watch that 2 years in a row at school, grades seven and eight!

so, no leopard88 i'm 15 and I thought the same thing!

Looks solid, but the Washington script on the jerseys is tiny and would be impossible to see during a game.

i agree with the washington script being too small, overall though i really like it, a huge improvement over their current jerseys

small suggestion - maybe instead of "washington" in the main logo, take it out and add a nationals-esque "DC" on the shoulders? just my $.02

really like em though!

no no no, the striping is good not going all the way around. my gripes are: make the part under the arm on the road jersey white, no navy there. also, they need a shoulder patch of some sort. maybe a DC, maybe something else. other than that i really like them.

Friend of mine with NHL connections, (take that with a grain of salt, I know people probably say that alot). mentioned that the Caps new logo is something along the lines of an eagle that is shaped like a big W. Personally i cant picture it, just mentioning it.

i like the logo but the template im not sure on. i don't like how it looks like the jets uniform with the capitals logo. it looks like the jets relocated to dc, and tried to create a DC identity while trying to hold on to the jets.

but the logo and colors are good, its just the template needs something to distinguish it self from the old jets.

Wait...the Caps are getting new unis? This is news to me.

Is this just the new uniform style, or a total makeover?

I'm of the thought that the best logos are ones that don't have words in them -- you look at the artwork alone and you KNOW what team it is.

The current Capitals dome logo and this concept, with maybe a few extra elements, can stand very well on their own without that "Capitals" wordplate that seems forced onto the logo.

i like that, but i don't think i explained what i meant very well in my first post - i think the main logo should still read Capitals, just without "washington"

then, on the shoulders, have some kind of interlocking DC or something - i do like what you have, but its too similar to put on the shoulders, maybe a secondary logo with an eagle or something like that

sorry i wasn't very clear :blush:
