Islanders Mish Mash

See, this is what an alternate jersey is supposed to look like. It actually has an ALTERNATE logo, not some lame, uninspired collegiate script. This concept is a million times better than the third the team just released.

Props

You know what, never mind an alternate jersey. THIS is the best logo I've seen for the Islanders. You took the good from the fisherman logo, threw out the bad (teal, the net, the wordmark).

My suggestions. Bring back navy blue. Extend the shaft of the stick on the right side of the logo for better balance, and add the tape knob end. perhaps a new, more modern striping pattern. get those lighthouse shoulder logos on there, they were always great.

You know, that actually could work for the Islanders. You took everything bad about the fisherman logo away and made it likeable. But the jersey itself is a bit too similar to their regular set, maybe try an orange or navy jersey with a different striping style?

Can anyone let me know how to have the graphic show up and not a linc to it?

Thanks for the input. I'll take some more critiques and post a new image showing the suggestions.

I'm not sure how photobucket works, but you can always use tinypic.com

Just upload your picture and it will give you the URL for free. Copy and paste the one that's has "Forums and Messaging Sites" over it. With any picture on the web, you can right click on it, go to properties, and select all of link that "Address URL" beside it, copy it, come back here, and paste the URL inside the button that says "Insert Image". By the way, love the concept and the logo.

I helped you out by editing your post.

I don't have a photobucket account, so I don't know if there are better options, but under "Share", there's a tab to "Get link code". The IMG codes are what you want.

You took my concept. LOL

Nah. Great minds think alike. In my Islanders concept for my "My City Multi-Team" contest entryI incorporated the fisherman in the logo's circle, although I excluded the wordmark, included the island and NY, made his skin orange and clothes blue, and put it on an orange version of the home logo.

I think that the fisherman looks great, and would make a great mascot for the team. The problem with at era's uniforms were the huge change in style and colors, not him. He would be great if brought up to the current classic color set and as an alternate, and I think if done in this style he'd be a welcome addition.

I love the logo. One thing I found that work is a navy blue, with a lighter blue to accent. That might work for you, instead of grey for the coat. I wouldnt make it navy and toyal, but a lighter faded blue.

I actually really like this. As most people above mentioned, it should have a different striping pattern. There are 2 things I don't like:

- The use of grey

- Ditch the "1972" on his coat. The "NY" looks good, though.

Oh, and for you and those wondering, go to your photo in photobucket, right-click it, and then select "Copy Image URL". Use the [image][/image] tabs(post it inbetween), and you're good to go.

tks for the input everyone.

The only reason I went with the grey was to keep the people at NYI head offices happy as they obviously wanted to tie themselves to the Knicks. ;)

Since the mish mash logo seems to be going over well I'll do a concept or two to reflect some of the requests.
