Alright, enough of that, let's get some concepts goin' up in here.
Pittsburgh Penguins Concept - Mario A.
Holy Trinity Tornadoes - George G.
Also, there's a little mockup on the image of the jersey with the numbering but the arm striping is inconsistent with the large image of the jersey.
George also sends in an image of a jersey that the team actually wears which looks like it was spun off of the above concept. The striping is still a bit messy and inconsistent, but this jersey looks better than above so it's nice that he stuck with it and made some tweaks.
Stadium Series Concept - Pittsburgh Penguins vs. Philadelphia Flyers - David P.
Boston Bruins Concept - Completely Different Series - Caz W.
Team Sweden World Cup Concept - Daniel L.
Stadium Series Concept - Minnesota Wild vs. Winnipeg Jets - Taylor R.
The Wild jersey is interesting, the tree pattern in the striping is neat, but it kind of bothers me that the colors don't match up with the logo... Meaning the have the red be green, and the yellow red, then outline/stroke the whole thing in yellow/white. Just a thought. Still nice.
The Jets' jersey is a nice nod to the RCAF. The shoulder patch is nice, the letters should be white though, so they pop off the shoulders instead of blending in to the red. The striping is interesting and I'm a fan, although I'd like to see the striping all be the same thickness. I'm not a huge fan of the font. The jersey looks like a mish mash between a vintage and modern style. A small amount of white in the striping would be nice as well. The NHL shield is missing from the collar.
I know this kind of goes against what I talked about last week regarding Stadium Series concepts, but I like the designs of these jerseys enough to give it my COTW Nom!
There you have it everyone! Monday's done. Now time to coast through the rest of the week to get to next Monday!
