New York Islanders Updated logo and uniforms

Recommended Posts

With the Islanders moving to Brooklyn soon, I decided to give them a slightly new look adding the Brooklyn bridge and bringing back the victory stripes. The third/winter classic jersey is based on the Brooklyn Americans.

c/c?

Neat idea, but the N being obscured by the bridge makes it very hard to read.

Shrink the bridge a bit and that'll be a great logo and I love the uniform!!

Agree with suggestion of shrinking the bridge, otherwise, perfect adaptaion!!!

As for the Alternate, I would try to go a little lighter on the colour, more off-white, less beige.

Awesome design. I am in agreance with RETRO, shirk the bridge, keep it in the lower 1/3 of the circle. Solid uniforms!

Rather than shrink the bridge, you could also flip it and have it fill up the dead space right of the Y in NY.

Also, with the alternate, there's not enough contrast between the vintage white and the orange for me. I would flip the orange with blue in pretty much all cases, and lighten up the vintage white a tad.

Pretty sure I saw lenghty discussions on the boards about that, but I belive that bottom line is: a) they have a winning tradition as the Islanders, B) Technically, Brooklyn is still on that same island, the way Queen's and the Hamptons are... hence a bridge to get there... and it is one of the 5 boroughs of New York...

You probably right I always thought the Islanders were name since they play in Long Island plus the Isles has great history from the Mike Bossy era.

I think this logo would look great if you could somehow make the word brooklyn arched across the top and keep the y in Brooklyn as a stick going downward.

I'm not sure the Isles or Rangers would like the idea of the Islanders wearing a diagonal script. I know what it's based on, but that would be like the Habs wearing this as a full-time alternate.

That aside, I agree with the above comments. Move/alter the "NY" so it's not obscured by the bridge and get rid of the four shoulder stripes. I've always hated those. I get wahting to honour the dynasty teams, but slapping four stripes as a shoulder patch is just lazy. The Oilers 5-tooth gear was a good example of how to do it.
