That might sound ridiculous to say but let me paint you a picture. I was a Senior in high school and I was all out wanting a career in TV production. I wanted to do something in editing. Possibly light producing and writing too. I took a Computer Design class my senior year just because I thought it would be simple enough since I knew some Photoshop work. Then one day at home when playing NHL 12 I made up a Buffalo Sabres vs. New York Islanders Winter Classic game and I had jersey ideas in my head. So instead of letting that idea become just a dream I made them on Paint. Then after that little hobby of posting those pictures on Facebook I decided to see the whole concept world. Searching on google and the first site that popped up...this one.
I quickly became insanely addicted. Sending in 3 concepts a day at one point. I wasn't even that good in the beginning but I just wanted to keep making my ideas. So, high school was over, and I was starting college. I just went as a liberal arts major as I luckily get to go to school for free. There was no TV course their so I decided to just get basic classes done with. One semester in I knew that designing is something I wanted to do, and all because of this site (a little help from IceThetics and CCSL). This site legitimately changed the direction of my life. To that I say thank you. To everyone I've interacted with. To everyone I became acquaintances with, and close friends with. Thank you to Ryan for giving me extra the opportunity to write for this site, not once, but twice. It's been awesome sharing my opinion but the time is up. Let's see what I have to say here.
I'm sure I'll definitely hear from most of you in the future, and you'll sure hear from me is some form.

A very retro feeling with this concept. I really do like the logo a lot. The jersey as a whole is really simple but has the modern element with the sleeves. Definitely a great example of a retro-modern look. I think part of me wants a bit more consistency in how the colors are executed. For instance, I think if red was separated from the black in more ways, the white jersey would look better. Like having the red stripes outlined by a white stripe. It would give the red and black more pop to the jersey. The red jersey is very nice in that aspect, and I think the white jersey could really look much better if done the same way!
Thank you all for the time that you have spent reading (or not reading) my posts. Glad to give new people a shot at writing for a such a great blog.
