NFC North Champions!


The Minnesota Vikings are 2009 NFL North Division Champions. The Vikings wrapped up their second consecutive division title after a Green Bay loss yesterday. The Vikes are currently 11-3 with Chicago next week on Monday Night Foorball, and the Giants the following week.

Toronto Maple Leafs Concept, Part 2


As a follow up to my Maple Leafs concept, I made a visual model for the alternate jersey. Kenny Ryan from this past year's NHL Draft models the new alternate jersey. It's nothing too exciting, just a visual model to see how the jersey would look on a real player.

Toronto Maple Leafs Concept











Next up in my NHL project, the Toronto Maple Leafs. The Leafs currently have jerseys that have lost their classic, traditional look. In this concept, I tried to tie the past to the present. I used a new template, based on the Leafs old jerseys. The current logo is used as the crest. A new logo is used on the shoulders. It is a combination of the logo on their current 3rds and an older logo. The alternate jersey introduces light blue into the color scheme. It is a blue jersey with light blue on the ends, as well as in the logo as an accent color. I also made a new wordmark.

Chicago Blackhawks Concept











Up next in my NHL projecct, the Chicago Blackhawks. The Blackhawks have one of the most classic looks in the league. It is something that is not often messed with. So, I kept the home and road unifroms almost exactly the same. The alternate is new, a mix of the black 3rd jerseys and last year's Winter Classic uniform. It is black with a white-dominant striping design. The logo is new, an updated version of their old circle logo. I also created a new wordmark.

New York Islanders Concept











The next team in my NHL project is the New York Islanders. The Islanders are currently in a "going retro" state of mind, but they have not yet fully committed. With this concept, they have, introducing a new retro inspired road uniform. Both the home and road jerseys feature a new template, based off of the old Islanders jerseys. A new orange alternate is introduced, featuring a new verison of the old logo. The circle and lettering have been dropped. I made a new alternate logo, a lighthouse with the Islanders script across the front.

Montreal Canadiens Concept











I have been working on my "Fixing the NHL" project for a while now, and it is finally time to share some of my concepts here. First up, the Montreal Canadiens.

For the Canadiens, I wanted to keep things classic, keeping the 100 year heritage strong. The home jersey now features a tie up collar, a nod to the old days. The road uniform is new, based on the Habs road unis from the 1940's. The alternate is...a little out there. It is a barberpole jersey, the first to meet the new Reebok Edge system. It features a new logo, inspired by the old Canadiens and the old Montreal Maroons. Also, I created a new wordmark for the Habs.
