Not really a fan of hockey jerseys with the number prominently featured on the front of the jersey (like the current Dallas Stars jerseys, which are about to be retired), but for a Quidditch-themed hockey jersey I’ll make an exception.
Besides adding numbers to the sleeves, the only other major change was removing the hoodie pocket outline from the lower front of the jersey.
Rival house Slytherin gets a similar design. Seems all the Quidditch teams share a basic logo and jersey template, which is a shame because I hoped for more unique identities.
Here is an alternate look with the crests enlarged:
I believe any of these would look sharp on a hockey or lacrosse team. Heck, any geek in general really.
Hufflepuff and Ravenclaw will eventually get designs, stay tuned for those.
I had a whole bunch of Star Trek hockey jersey designs on my other blog from a few years back, but a I did a housecleaning recently and those designs were deleted. So I cobbled together this new batch of designs for your viewing pleasure.
I’m sure even the most casual geek can identify all the uniforms and which era they belong to, and that’s because the Starfleet uniform is so iconic.
Perhaps too iconic, because I tried to enlarge the badges and make them into standard hockey jersey logos, but it looked really weird (take my word for it). The beauty of the badge design is in its simplicity; it telegraphs really well — even in its small default size.
If I had to choose one it would be the TNG movie design (top left), because it looks pretty sharp, almost military-like in my opinion. Also it would be very ideal for a hockey team, because the color accents (red, blue, and gold) could vary throughout the entire roster and it wouldn’t look distracting, due to the black and grey being the primary colors.
Thanks to Geeky Jerseys’s sublimation process, the detailed pattern of the J.J. Abrams era uniforms (top right) can be replicated (pun intended). However at this time there are no plans to offer any of these designs (sorry).
UPDATE: A bonus Wesley Crusher design:
SECOND UPDATE: Added a Voyager style for a die-hard Janeway fan. I didn’t make one initially because I thought it was too plain, apologies to Voyager fans! Enterprise fans maybe one day down the road!
Remember that Art Instructor that always praised Marge Simpson’s* artwork in that one episode of The Simpsons? I feel like I am doing that whenever I speak of Geeky Jerseys. Amazing work! Fabulous!!
All jokes aside the hardworking team at Geeky Jerseys continue to impress me. This jersey was definitely worth the wait (it’s a few weeks behind because they are inundated with hockey team orders over there), and I can’t wait to get my hands on it.
For those who ordered they’ll be hitting the mail sometime in the next seven to nine days (tracking numbers will be sent out). Did you miss out? You can sign up to be notified when it is released again here.
The Royals (Baratheon) and Spaceballs jerseys will be completed very soon. Sorry they’re a little behind schedule. You can’t rush custom quality.
If you like the logo you can grab a T-shirt from 80′s Tees.
*He also complimented a custodian painting a handrail for a set of stairs.
Cthulhu was frequently requested, unfortunately I am not really versed in Lovecraftian lore. So I did a mashup with something I do know, Batman. Besides the logo the jersey features an ornate pattern embedded in the black stripes. Can’t think of any secondary logos for this one yet.
Next up is a Clerks-themed hockey jersey, decked out with many familiar sponsors. My ongoing quest to geekify every NHL team continues! This time the Edmonton Oilers are enlisted, seeing as Kevin Smith wears their colors for his SMODCO jerseys.
Lastly a jersey based on the protagonist from the second Dead Rising game, Chuck Greene. His leather jacket features a sporty design and the number 4, making it ideal for a hockey jersey.
I’m going to ask Kevin Smith if he’ll permit a run of the Clerks design, so there’s a slim chance of it being offered. Cthulhu might be offered if there is enough interest. Dead Rising probably won’t be offered.
My first Lord of the Rings hockey jersey design! Truth be told this was actually commissioned by Jeff B. for his son Joseph, a die-hard LOTR fan and ice hockey player. I’m very happy to deliver this design for both of them. Thanks for letting me share the design here, guys!
All the imagery is from the original films (The Two Towers, mostly). The front and shoulder crests take cues from flags seen in the Rohan throne room. The back neck patch is the actual flag of Rohan, the one seen falling to the ground in the film (just prior to Aragorn and Gandalf’s arrival in Rohan). The ‘RR’ was my own touch (otherwise it would’ve been another horse), inspired by the Rolls Royce logo.
If you’d like to hire me for some design work please send me an email with your idea and I can provide a quote.
Another NHL/geek mashup today, this time the Ottawa Senators get a Marvin the Martian makeover. This one is a no-brainer, as the franchise logo has often been compared to the Looney Tunes character*. Even longtime Sens goalie Patrick Lalime had Marvin prominently featured on his goalie mask.
I had to Ottawa-ify the Mars flag, because in the cartoon it looked essentially the same as Japan’s national flag (red circle on white backdrop). Not that there is anything wrong with Japan’s flag, I just want to avoid confusion. This version of the flag mimics the Sens’ shoulder patches (those feature a black ‘O’ instead of the red planet).
*And for better or worse the Trojan condoms logo.
