I mentioned a few weeks back that I’d get a bunch of new Game of Thrones designs out the door, but I’ve decided to take my time on them to ensure the quality of the designs are in line with the recent Direwolves jersey.
For House Lannister I went with a bit of a departure from the 2.0 design, going with a red home jersey. I jettisoned the ‘Lions’ moniker because it was too short a name to be spread atop the main logo, so I went with Casterly Rock. The main logo also features a full-body Lion instead of the head profile. Here is a mockup:
My only worry is that it looks too fancy. I know how immature my readers are, and I don’t want to alienate them. Why am I voicing my concern? I don’t think anyone reads this stuff. They just look at the pictures and move along. I just feel so used.
My hope is to get this and Baratheon 2.0, Greyjoy 2.0, and Night’s Watch 2.0 (those last two are still being worked on) posted on Geeky Jerseys’ homepage soon. I’m hoping to attract more interest in GoT designs that aren’t House Stark, which is an uphill battle; the Starks are so synonymous with winter, and thus suited for a hockey jersey.
Hellboy/BPRD was a popular request on the Facebook page a few weeks ago, and I am happy to finally oblige. I enjoyed the films (and animated films), but that’s the extent of my knowledge about the character, so I hope this passes muster with Red’s fans.
I channeled the Stockton Thunder logo for this design, with the color palette of the Ottawa Senators. The khaki main body with BPRD shoulder patches represents Hellboys overcoat. The red forearms also represent the character.
I’ll probably revisit the design to add a back neck patch (the unused logo doesn’t sit well). I know the NHL doesn’t do this (unless you think the Reebok logo counts), but I like to add geeky tags to all my designs.
No plans to sell this ever, Mua-hahahahaha-ha!
I’m not going to reinvent the wheel here! Thought I’d make the name font skinnier, and the number font a bit similar to the recent Stay Puft jersey. The numbers are also moved off the sleeves so I could add more visual interest to the arms. All numbers are black now.
I’d like to go on record saying I did play around with this design. Stuff like red numbers with black outlines, elbow patches, fake zipper patches, and so on. Ultimately I followed my mantra: keep it simple. After the Link 3.0 experience I felt it best to evolve the design yet remain true to what folks liked before.
Keep an eye on my Now Available page in the coming weeks for news regarding this design.
As a tribute to the excellent Hunger Games sequel, I made this design based on the uniforms worn by the film’s combatants. At the last minute I removed the 75 and District 12 logos for a cleaner look; also I thought it would helpful to keep this jersey district-neutral for now.
While the film applauds “rogue” fashion designers, this design won’t be offered by yours truly. However if your team is interested I might be able to help you out with your private order.
In light of the recent Direwolves 6.0 turning out so perfectly, I’ll be updating some older Game of Thrones-inspired jerseys to match the more recent designs. The Baratheon/Royals 2.0 design gets a deeper gold, new front logo, and new shoulder patches. New fonts for the name and numbers too.
House Lannister and House Greyjoy will also be getting updates in the coming days, and I’m still working on a new Night’s Watch design as well (no ETA on that).
These won’t be immediately offered, instead they’ll be listed in the By Demand section on the Geeky Jerseys homepage. My hope is to spur more interest in other Houses, because right now only House Stark is a sure bet to be offered on a regular basis.
I don’t mean to disappoint folks, but my design focus will be on the top five houses (Stark, Baratheon, Lannister, Targaryen, and Greyjoy) and Night’s Watch. Other houses like Martell and Tully are not on the radar for the foreseeable future.
There are many people asking for other houses to be offered (like Targaryen or Lannister), but it’s very difficult to accommodate everyone currently. Gone are the days when I could offer 2 or 3 GoT designs at the same time. Geeky Jerseys now only offers 2-4 hockey jersey designs a month to ensure quality, and the big hitters like Doctor Who and Star Wars usually grab all the available spots. If folks sign-up for designs in the By Demand section, Geeky Jerseys will offer that design.
Hopefully that clears things up a bit! Sorry if you’re waiting on your House to be offered.
