Colorado Avalanche Concept - (Andy C.)
Vancouver Canucks Concept - (Felix T.)
Colorado Avalanche Concept - (Jack H.)
Here's something I don't think we see too often, an Avalanche concept with a chest stripe. I think Colorado is one of the teams that it would be acceptable for to have the chest stripe. They've been around for over 20 years and have at least some history in the league and the colors look good together. The striping sits funny with me as the striping doesn't match, but the fact that both jerseys feature a chest stripe I guess makes it ok. For this concept though, I prefer the dark jersey striping, though I do like the white jersey pattern too!
Florida Panthers Concept - (Jack H.)
Grizzly Adams Wolfsburg (DEL) Concept - (Jake88)
Kolner Haie (DEL) Concept - (Jake88)
Edmonton Oilers Anniversary Logo Concept - (Joey A.)
As for the critique, I like the basic idea, I like how it's using elements from past logos. I feel like the "OILERS" at the bottom doesn't need to be there. I don't care for the diagonal numbers. This is definitely headed somewhere though. A little bit more refining and this is on it's way to being a good anniversary logo, better than what some teams have been throwing out there the past few years.
Minnesota Wild "University Style" Concept - (Ryan - HJC)
Pittsburgh Penguins Concept - (Tyler G. - HJC)
We'll end our day with tomorrow's writer, Tyler, who suggests the Penguins go a more traditional route with their striping as opposed to their Reebok cookie-cutter nonsense. Like Jack's Avalanche concept from today, the striping is inconsistent between the jerseys but they share a very similar look so it's kind of hard to tell. This concept kind of pulls a "Carolina" though as each jersey is different but way similar to someone else's jersey. The white jersey says "Islanders" to me while the black jersey kind of, but not completely, resemble a green Minnesota jersey. Still though, good looking set. Hard to make a set look bad in these colors.
Well I hope everyone enjoyed today's post. Also, I know I mentioned Sunday that I would watch the amount of birthday fun I would have so I'm ok for today's post, well, Sunday might be a blue and Monday was definitely not fun, I'm 100% for today!
