NHL 1970s Style - Ottawa Senators Added!

Recommended Posts

I decided to do something a little different. Instead of designing a new uniform for a team, I decided to create an old one. So here are my mid 70s Atlanta Thrashers. The uniforms are based on the Padres' baseball uniforms of the 1970s.atlanta_zpsa7d07dff.png

It's pretty good, but I am questioned as to why the use of old Padres colors?

Because 70's = dirty gold and brown.

Probably from the haze of the 'marinated steak sandwiches.'

But anyway, save the yellow pants, I quite like these. Correct me if Im wrong, but that would probably be a pretty unique striping pattern back then.

Honestly, I went with the Padres colors because not only is it a very stereotypical 1970s color scheme, but they are also very hot, summer-ish colors that fit a team in the deep south well.

Yeah, the striping pattern would have been quite unique to hockey, but not to all . I recently saw a cool hockey concept based on Houston Astros baseball uniforms, and so I decided to try some 1970s baseball inspired designs.

Wow!! Great job, simple, clean, realistic. Would you happen to have just the logo itself?

Love the throwback look, could we get a good look at the logo?

I think avocado would work better than brown, personally, but I like them.

There is ONE problem that, historically, NEEDS to be fixed: hemline stripes. They truly were a necessity then, and they should be added here.

Really digging the logo, though, that's perfect for the era

Gotta keep the brown. The state bird is the brown thrasher. I'd just add hem stripes and ditch the yellow pants.

So I took some of the advice, and here are the updated Thrashers. I'm keeping the yellow pants though. Also, here's a better look at the logo.

Still not feeling the "old west" font. Maybe try something more hippy/disco, like Bahaus.

NO!!!!! NO PLEASE GOD NO!!!!!!!

why? His concept is better than anything the thrashers had in existence.

Do like that thrasher georgia logo. Not sold on the color scheme but I could have seen them jump on the 'cool things of the 70's' bandwagon before overhauling in the 80's.

My Atlanta Thrashers 1970s style got a lot of feedback, so I decided to do the Anaheim Ducks as well. These uniforms are based on the White Sox uniforms of the 1970s. I picked another very 1970s color scheme that seemed appropriate for a team called the Ducks.

Shoulders seem a little bit too blank, but other than that, I like it

Actually, those Sox uniform are from the 80s. I think it was 1983 they were introduced. The Sox are wearing them as Sunday alternates this year.

EDIT: My bad, it was 1982. The 70s had the Sox introduce the "softball shorts" uniform. There would be a concept, a hockey team in shorts!

While I don't find the colour scheme appealing at all as a fan, it's fitting for that era and very believable.

Although like most teams, I'd like to think the Ducks would've had a logo as opposed to a wordmark in the 70's. I'd certainly be interested in seeing how you would interpret that.
