Yesterday, we saw Justin C.'s goalie helmet concept that was made and worn in an NHL game. I love goalie helmet designs, so I'll start today's post with one:
Christian L.- Ottawa Senators Goalie Helmet Concept
Score: 7/10 - As I mentioned, I love goalie helmet concepts, but I wish we could have more angles or views. Putting the helmet on the silhouette is also really cool.
Alan H. - Team Finland World Championship Concept
Score: 7.5/10 - I really like the white jerseys, but I am confused about the shape of the shoulder yoke. Would the stripe come to a point near the elbow?
Alan H. - Team Finland Olympics Concept
Score: 8/10 - Nike should take notes. There is no reason we shouldn't see this jersey in 2016.
Ben S. - Anaheim Ducks Concept
Design: Wildwing's mask returns in Ben's not so mighty Ducks concept. I like that the "D" logo was used instead of the wordmark. I also like that all three jerseys have a similar striping pattern, as it would give the Ducks a uniform look.
Score: 6.5/10 - This concept would really benefit from shoulder patches, and I think that the arm striping may be a little bit too high on the arm. Also don't forget to put some sort of ID on your concepts!
David P. - Slytherin Harry Potter Concept
Score: 7/10 - "Please, please. Anything but Slytherin, anything but Slytherin"
Tyler F. - Reading Royals Concept
Score: 6/10 - I like that Tyler highlighted his shoulder patch in the dead space of his image. It really allows me to visualize filly what his concept should look like. I do think that the shoulder patch should be oriented with the TV numbers as opposed to the front of the jersey.
Mike S. - Flagstaff Roadrunners Concept
Score: 7/10 - If the numbers were outlined, this concept would kill the competition. I think that the numbers look like an afterthought was they stand right now. A cool shoulder patch could also add a lot to this concept. I think the pants would also benefit from some blue detail.
Stephen T. - Minnesota North Stars Concept
Score: 7.5/10 - I miss the collar ties that the North Stars originally used. I don't miss the use of black in the North Stars' color palette.
Stephen T. - Team USA Concept
Score: 8/10 - I like the look of the concept on paper, but the abrupt blue to white transition may look funny on a physical jersey.
Stephen T. - Maple Leafs vs. Canadiens Stadium Series Concept
Score: 9/10 - COTW Nomination! I liked the Winter Classic's red vs. blue match up, and I think these colors would look good again. Maybe they could play this came at the Rogers Center with hockey being played almost directly under the CN Tower.
That's all for this week. Don't forget to vote!
