Avalanche ReDesign entries (due Tue, Aug 25 @ 10pm Eastern)
Today wasn't really anything special. Grand Rapids Griffins unveiled their new primary logo and jerseys. We knew the logo for a couple of weeks now with help from NHL 16 EASHL beta leaks. Logo in my opinion is a downgrade. Before I always thought they needed a new logo but I much prefer that old one now. In fact I kind of look at that one as a classy logo now. Something that you don't necessarily change. Not perfect, not even amazing, but just classic. The jerseys on the other hand I think are much better. However, the helmet and pants being red on a black jersey just doesn't look right to me. It looks like kids were given helmets and pants but their team had to change jerseys before the season started to differentiate from other house youth teams and they were stuck with mismatching colors.

T-Roy offers us the lovely double blue look. I tried looking up their hockey team. It doesn't look like they have one. If they do, it must be a club program or something. The striping, jerseys are well done. As usual from Taylor. Nice and effective. Has that untouchable look. One change I'd make that I can see would be to make the name and number font on the blue jersey white. At least the name, the dark blue makes it hard to see from a distance. So I'd just make those all white, because the TV numbers would also be hard to see. To me though, those would be the only changes I'd make. Just a note that I'd like to make. Adding a lime green as a subtle color in their I think could make this really pop out. Just a small stripe in their I think could make this look very nice. Anyone agree? No? Maybe? Tell me in the comments.
COTW GOES TO TAYLOR FROM ME!
So, entering the middle of the week. Also, tomorrow's writer DBro found a great deal for a font package. Any designers out there that likes to have a variety of fonts can now get 250 fonts for just $9 today from HERE. Roughly a 3,000 dollar value for ten dollars, so any graphic designers that love to designing anything, this is a great deal. Heard that a lot are ordinary fonts but some are great. Well worth it I think!
