Not A Harry Potter Jersey Design
The last few weeks I’ve been hounded to make this Harry Potter hockey jersey design available, because it was featured on Gawker. I’ve resisted doing so because I don’t want to draw the wrath of Warner Brothers (they have Batman) and J.K. Rowling (who is richer than Bruce Wayne) and so on. So I did my best to ignore the demand.
The last straw was when I was attacked by an owl yesterday, so message received*. I then set out to make a non-infringing design, which you see above.
Gone is “Gryffindor” which has been replaced by a single ‘G’, which could easily stand for Geek or Gangster (both apply to me of course). I also added a hubcap with wings – wink wink.
I think the logo would look awesome embroidered, even if it looked half as good as this Zelda crest I posted yesterday.
No plans for release just yet, though it is currently a candidate that can be made available in the next few weeks. Should it be made available, you could put whatever name (and number) you want on the back — just saying!
My question is, are you cool with the “Gryffindor” removed? Does it still invoke a certain house from a certain series of books based on a boy wizard? Let me know, I’m just trying to gauge reaction.
*Get it? Owl? Message received? Nevermind.

Nice logo design!
SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY!!!
I like it Dave!
I do miss the Gryffindor wording on there, but I get it! Better safe than sorry!
Looking at it again, I do like this new design better!
Thanks! I may do one more tweak. Seems a bit busy on the top half, and a bit sparse on the lower half.
I think it is perfect!!! I wouldn’t change a thing!
The G reminds me of Gatchaman:
It looks pretty sleek to me 🙂 and you made wonderful compromise.
Thanks! It actually reminded me of “Super Grover’s” shield, or what I thought that shield looked like, but he actually had ‘SG’ in there.
Need to add a lightning bolt as a twill patch on the tail 😉
Yeah! How about a lightning bolt under the number instead of a star?
It’s sort of a facsimile of the Quidditch jersey from the film which has the star: http://news.bbc.co.uk/media/images/45674000/jpg/_45674006_ginny416image.jpg
In combination with this sweater: http://www.polyvore.com/cgi/img-thing?.out=jpg&size=l&tid=192288
While cool, the lightning bolt would be more representative of one person, instead of the whole house. I feel it’s best for a neutral approach, for those who want to put Weasley or Granger on the back.
Any chance we could see a H, R, or S jersey to go with this wonderful G jersey? Obviously those letters were chosen at random while looking at the alphabet.
Good idea, co-conspirator! I mean, Nick!
R has always been my favorite letter of the alphabet. Also, I know that if you were to make one with the letter R, you would have to choose between making it Navy and Silver or Navy and Bronze, I would hope that you go with Bronze.
Uh oh, watch out. Sesame Street has the corner market on letters and numbers! ;p
Is the star twill?
i do love this jersey if made avalible i would buy this in a heart beat
that and a “S” would be great
I would definitely be board for an R jersey, because I’ve always been partial to the letter “R.” It was my favorite letter from Romper Room on…
BTW, I am so looking forward to the delivery of my Tardis jersey!
and speaking personally, I like SILVER better (blasphemy, I know) than bronze.
:O HERETIC! Be gone with your heresy and blasphemy! I kid I kid
Not A Harry Potter Jersey Design, can i get this jersey but for snake, green and black house? Is that something that you guys have available to do?
