Wonka's Tampa Bay Lightning

Recommended Posts

I wanted to give Tampa Bay a.....unique, but also good look. I think they could pull this off well in the NHL. Tell me what you think.

Looks really good. I'd probably buy one but it'd also probably only work as an alternate, especially with Stevie Y on the helm.

Two things I'd change: shrink the logo and get rid of the silver on the collar, but I really like it.

The lightning edges look really soft though

Honestly, the arm striping doesn't evoke lightning to me, especially not with the rounded outlines and the symmetry that would be needed down the sleeves. It reads more like feathers or wings.

If you want a lightning effect on the arms, the reverse pattern should appear on the opposite side.

Need sharpness on the lightning bolts, for sure. Also, I am not a fan of the black (and especially not the outline on the bolt)...even though that seems to be a minority opinion to those who watch NHL because another team claims that look.

After Tampa made their logo and uniforms the simplest things of all time, I don't even think there is a design you could do with their identity now that could make them look great, with this logo they need a really traditional design like they have. (I'm trying to do a redesign of the NHL without using old or different logos.)

Going from the Tampa Bay Maple Wings to the Tampa Bay Lions? :)

Seriously though, I like what you've done with this concept...some interesting elements!

If you made the design down the sleeves into lightning bolts (pointed at the tip, jagged instead of soft corners, and non-symmetrical, as has already been said) and simplify the outlines on everything to a single broad stroke, you could be onto something. Blue and white with a dash of silver could look good here.

I'm not really feeling the silver for the Lightning. And honestly, the sleeve stripes are just too wild and look a bit cartoonish, like the 90s Lightning unis. But its a start.
