I don't really have anything for the intro today, so let's just get right into it!
But first, take the extra time you have from a lack of a long intro to go vote. Only COTW this week so that won't take much time. And if you have even more time, why not go redesign the Flames and enter it into the comp.
COTW Oct 14-20 vote (ends Friday @ noon Eastern)
Calgary Flames ReDesign entries (due Friday @ noon Eastern)
Flames comp entries:
Ben S. - Alabama Frozen Tide
+The simple design used here fits the logo set well.
-I think the stripes are a little too thin though.
+Good font choice.
+The laces and shoulder stripe fit well with this design.
-The diagonal wordmark on the red jersey is a bit too low.
-I'm not usually a fan of helmet stripes, but it's not too bad here. Still think it would be better without. The side number is a neat idea too, I think that works better.
Cole W. - Calgary Cowboys
+Pretty good design, accurate for the time period.
+I like the addition of gray, but...
-It meshes with the white on the red striping. Separate the two colors.
-The black also very slightly meshes with the red.
-I have a similar critique on the logo as yesterday, but I also like where you're going with it. I'm not sure the spur needs to be larger, but if you used a bold/black Helvetica for the C (just like the Flames), I think it'd be a big improvement.
-Bring back the change log too, I could barely tell the difference between this concept and yesterday's.Overall: 8/10
John E. - Quebec Nordiques
+I like the choice of color shades. Separates them from all the other red/white/blue teams.
-I think the lighter blue should be just a bit more lighter though.
+I really like that primary logo, and the secondary isn't bad either.
-I don't think the primary should really be a primary. It seems more suited for a shoulder patch.
+I like the modern direction this concept goes in, to separate them from the past Nordiques.
+The font works surprisingly well here.
-I think the yoke's shape conflicts with the striping's shape a bit..it just looks off.
+The pants fleur-de-lis is a nice look.
Overall: 8.5/10 and my COTW nomination
Mike F. - Team Canada
+This is sure an interesting look.
+The stripes look good. I like the upper arm stripe too.
+While I don't prefer the black I think the black equipment does give a nice break from the red on the red jersey.
-I like the idea behind the yoke, but I don't think it works. Move the bottom stripe down if not remove it.
-After seeing some other concepts for this series, I'm not a fan of the templated design for every team. I'm not sure any jersey enthusiast really would be.
And that's all the time we have today. I hope you enjoyed the post, thanks for reading, and I'll see you again next week!
