Sonics Hockey Jersey Design

Just wanted to make a retro/vintage jersey design that plays up the Mickey Mouse characteristics I see in Sonic the Hedgehog (white gloves, big shoes). I understand if this take is not for everyone, but I think it’s fun to look at.

Sonics is a great name for a pro team, it’s a shame no one uses it. Too soon?

Pac-Man Hockey Jersey Design

Here is another design based on an arcade cabinet, Pac-Man! The Pac-Man font makes for some ugly letters and numbers, apologies for not enlisting it here.

As you can see, I changed it. The main logo was too crowded, the white shoulders weren’t a hit with some people. Here is the old one, was I wrong?

NHL ’94 Hockey Jersey Design

As you know I love NHL ’94, so making a design for the game was something I always wanted to do. I just didn’t until now because many others have already done such a design, so I wanted to do a unique take. Originally I was going to make this design based on the box art (black stripes and lettering on a white jersey), but it looked too boring.

I posted this on Twitter and Facebook yesterday (if you follow me on either, thanks), but with official NHL, NHLPA, and EA Sports logos included. To make this safe for Geeky Jerseys to potentially make, I made my own versions of these logos. And yes, head bleeds were in ’93 only so I made an exception for fun.

Battletoads Hockey Jersey Design

Battletoads was not a video game, it was an elaborate scheme that incited gamers to destroy their controllers so they’d have to buy new ones. Nintendo and Sega gave the makers of Battletoads a kickback for controller sales, of course. I can’t prove this, but it’s the only plausible explanation.

The Tradewest logo is a placeholder until I can think of something better. It does look rather sporty though, it’s starting to grow on me.

Donkey Kong Hockey Jersey Design

Thought I’d do a design that is a homage to the original Donkey Kong arcade cabinet from 1981 (35 years ago!). All of the logos are updated versions of art found on the cabinet. Donkey Kong himself is a mix of the current Kong with the 1981 original and the 1982 Donkey Kong Jr. version (the teeth mostly). There’s a “DK” on the front neck too, to match his necktie.

Ideally I’d go overboard with stripes and colors to match the arcade cabinet, but I like to keep Geeky Jerseys’ production methods in mind when creating designs. That means a more conventional approach towards layout and trying to limit the number of colors.
