I've been talking about it for two weeks and now it's time! It's time to start the 2015 Pairs Competition. It's a big project. You can see exactly how big it is by clicking the banner at the top of the page or by going to the PAIRS COMPETITION tab. This is a two week competition and if teams feel like they will need more time as we approach the deadline, then I have no problem extending it.

Here are the teams who made their intentions known. If you would like to join the competition, find a partner and you can still submit something. Just let me know that you hope to submit something.

LOGOS DIVISION
John E. & Dylan N.
Christian L. & Scott G.
Dylan A & Matt M

JERSEYS DIVISION
Taylor R. & J3
Daniel L. & Phil B.
Dylan G. & Zach W.
William B. & Vaughn R.
Coby S & Josiah B
Bpoe96 & Kaner88

I was contacted by Richard who is president of the Burlington District Minor Ball Hockey League (Burlington, Ontario). He liked some of the stuff that he saw on the blog and was wondering if anyone wanted to take a stab at designing a jersey for the team to wear in an upcoming provincial championship tournament, July 10-12 in Georgetown, Ontario. The team is called the Burlington Blazers and here is the logo they used last year:

Richard said that he is open to any ideas when it comes to the jersey and logo. The only guidelines given were that the team wears orange jerseys with black shorts. If you want to put a design together, send it into HJC and I will forward it to Richard. If he likes a design, the team will wear it for the tournament.

Another nerd world that I live in is the Disney nerd world. And one of my favourite things about Disney is the monorails. It's easy to make a comparison between how I view all the different versions of the monorail and how a non jersey nerd may not see the differences between a CCM Vintage cut and a Reebok Edge cut.

For example, take a look at the monorails below,
They may appear to most people to be the same thing, however they are very different.

Same can be said for these Kings jerseys,
They may appear to be the same to the average fan, however to me they are very different.

Anyways, there's no real point to that other than I'll take any opportunity to make a monorail reference. I also needed you guys to pay attention so that I can remind you to vote!

Yay. My first COTW win. Thanks to everyone who gave me a Nom and those who voted for me. And especially all of you who helped me improve my concepts!

Huh. 9th place in the Video Game Comp. Not too shabby.

Andrew Warren said...

Man, that logo division is stacked with some amazing talent. The jersey division is not to shabby either.

Kris Knudsen said...

Please tell me the differences in the monorails!! It's dri me crazy!

Kris Knudsen said...

Ha the windows for 1! PS have you ever ridden in the front?!

Ryan said...

@Kris: I've rode in the front a few times. For the last six years at Disney World it's not allowed anymore.

Bottom monorail is smaller and more round. Where are the doors? The whole side is a door that lifts up. The top monorail has doors that slide open.

Ryan, shouldn't my contest win be in the COTW vote?

Ryan said...

@Taylor: That was not part of the rules for this particular competition.

Oh ok, no problem then.
