Wednesday The 14th In 30

Hey everyone! I'm going to attempt to write this post while I take a 30 minute break to watch the Senators game. Safe to say it's been a busy time for me. Life can be that way, I'm not saying it's a bad thing though! Alright here are your reminders...

COTY-December vote (ends Friday @ 11:59pm Eastern)
COTW Jan 4-10 vote (ends Friday @ 11:59pm Eastern)
World Cup Logo Top 3 vote (due Friday @ 11:59pm Eastern)


concepts:
Dylan N - Florida Panthers

Dylan Create a modern-fauxback. Yes. I love the angular stripes, they look super sharp. I can't spot any major issues here except the yoke. I'm not feeling it here, maybe its the colours or maybe its the shape but it doesn't look like it fits the jersey well. Maybe you could create something cool with the old triangle yoke they used to have. Overall: Keep up the quality concepts Dylan, and for sure you will have a chance at COTY. (8.5/10)

Jake G - Ottawa Senators

Another Laurel leaves Sens concept... but wait! This has a chest stripe. It's a cool idea but it almost makes the jersey really cluttered in some areas, and bare in others (The arms and hem especially). The arms could easily be fixed with arm stripes similar to the chest stripe. Otherwise execution is great besides the big logo... and if it's your first concept then high five for that! Overall (7/10)

Jack H - All Star Game

A lot of people hate the new ASG jerseys, and I understand. I actually don't mind them... there's something about them that I just don't know... I like. Enough about those ones, because Jack has a new idea that stays true to the design from last year. YES no chrome logos. Red and Blue colour scheme are classic, but i like the two-tone part of it. As far as design i don't like the shape of the stripes, I'd like to see something more "swoosh-y" and less blocky to match the logo. Overall: This jersey tries to be modern but the stripe are holding that back. (8/10)


Straight up I like the creativity Mario is showing here. He also ditches the two-tone blue. Good choice! Mario's issue here is colour balance. The blue jersey has to much white, and the white jersey has to much yellow. Work on that, and work on incorporating the triangle on the sleeve better into the striping patter, move up your numbers and you should be good. (Overall: 6/10)  

Mario A - Tampa Bay Lightning

Tampa Bay's jerseys are pretty plain. Mario tries to add some life with this design. I Like the addition of black. This is just a copy of Florida's jerseys though... get creative mario. Also i suggest fonts from the template section of the website. Move them up a bit, and lower the NOB. Logo could be a bit bigger. Keep working at it Mario, you're getting better. (6/10)

 Steven G - Anaheim Ducks

Steven creates an alternate jersey for Anaheim with no white. I like the balance of the orange and gold, they don't overpower each other. Logo choice is a must. The new template looks good. A few nitpicks would be that the logo doesn't need the thin white outline. Another would be to replace the black outline in the numbers with gold. Overall a very realistic jersey. (8.5/10)

Taylor R -  Admiral Vladivostok

Taylor designs a conservative jersey for a European team, which almost always works. The overall design works, from the colour scheme to the yoke to the number font. Everything from the dark jersey is spot on but on the white jersey, just a suggestion, I would ditch the think white stripe in the striping just to make it match the logo. That alternate logo is awful but at least you added one. Overall (8.5)


Don't forget to vote for the COTY quarter vote! should be a tight race for the COTY. I'm probably not going to vote since i'm in both votes... so that means you need to. Have a great week everyone!

I am a bit confused about my critique. I don't know at all what you mean about the striping matching the logo.

I'll second Taylor's Vladivostok jersey for COTW

@taylor Yeah, I wasn't in the best condition when I wrote this post. Let's leave it at that. On the white jersey... In the stripes.. Make the thin white stripe... Dark blue. This would be to match the logo, since it doesn't have an outline or anything. Really just a suggestion.

Ok, that's what I was thinking you meant. It probably would have been a better that way tbh.
