UPDATE: The original main logo was not feasible for production, so it was simplified and the license plate was removed. I hope y’all still like it. Original post as follows:
I didn’t design the first Gigawatts jersey, Geeky Jerseys did; however I thought I’d take a crack at a second iteration. Originally I was just going to slap on the original Gigawatts logo, but I thought I’d do something different.
If there’s enough interest it could replace the old Gigawatts design.
I’m also working on a BTTF2 version to commemorate 2015, no idea when I’ll post it, but hopefully before the end of the year!
Here is a mockup:
As the title suggests, this isn’t a design post exactly, more like a general idea. In light of this year’s weird take on the NHL All-Star jerseys, I thought I’d put forward a new concept, where two unique team identities are created solely for the All-Star game.
The two teams would adopt fun nicknames that pay tribute to the host city. For the example above I chose Boston, so the teams would be the Shamrocks and Shenanigans (note: I goofed, thought House of Pain was from Boston, they’re actually from New York). If Toronto was hosting, team names would be something like the Yorkton Bullies and the Queen Street Trolleys.
The team identities would happen regardless of format (East Vs. West, North America Vs. World, Captain Vs. Captain), so there may be some subtitling: Eastern Conference Shamrocks, or Captain Crosby’s Shamrocks, etc.
The NHL shield would get bumped up to the right chest or shoulders. I’d also like to bump the Reebok logo to the hem, and put the team logo above the player’s name, but there is no way Reebok would ever permit that.
With a couple of solid team designs, I feel these jerseys would have more appeal with fans in all NHL markets than the current NHL shield jerseys.
Note: why not a few geeky designs for All-Star jerseys, like Star Wars or DC Comics? I don’t think any NHL team would go for that, to be honest. But with the All-Star game the NHL has shown they’re willing to experiment with jersey designs, so a couple of sporty/beer league designs seem more plausible.
These 2 designs were finished awhile ago, I was sitting on them because I’m reluctant to post really “simple” designs. Hopefully the Star Blazers design lives up to the many requests I’ve received for it (the show was a bit ahead of my time, I swear I never heard of it until a few years back).
Static Shock was a personal favorite to do, as I’m a big fan of the animated series. The late 90’s and early 2000’s were a golden age for Saturday morning cartoons, with the DCAU and other great shows like Pinky and the Brain and MIB The Series to name a few. Today’s generation of kids have it bad when it comes to quality cartoons, which is good! Darn kids.
Here’s a really simple Karate Kid baseball jersey design for this lazy Saturday afternoon. It would work better as a vest style jersey to match the Cobra Kai uniform, but for now I’m running with black sleeves because reasons.
Hopefully baseball jerseys will happen soon, as I’m starting to sense pitchforks and torches nearby.
I feel bad that Geeky Jerseys and I haven’t catered to Harry Potter fans as much as we would like, so I am floating this design out there for your consideration. Basically, it’s all I can do without including the words ‘Gryffindor’ and ‘Hogwarts’. Here is a mockup:
Here is an alternate take that was designed with a red-and-gold striped scarf in mind. The oversized “G” was usually how I referred to Gryffindor before, but I decided to jettison that for a cleaner look. The end result looks like something an Ivy League school would wear, in my opinion.
So let me know what you think by commenting, liking, and tweeting.
A baseball jersey design in December? I’m a weirdo, what can I say. Anyways, I’ve gotten many requests to do something Fallout-related (almost as many as something called “Deadpool”), so I’m happy to post this for y’all.
I imagine most of the requests were for a hockey jersey, but that vertical stripe on the front doesn’t work on a hockey jersey, so apologies for this compromise.
On a related note, I appreciate the continued patience by those waiting for baseball designs to be offered. Logistically speaking Geeky Jerseys is ready to make them, we just ran out of baseball season this year to put up an offer. Please hang tight until this spring! In the meantime you can sign-up for a few baseball jersey designs on the GJ website (in the “By Demand” section).
