NHL Rebrand by the rookie

https://i.ibb.co/7pZhszG/Flames-Rebrand.png


Since 2007, the Flames haven't looked good. As a result, I present my first of many concepts for you fair folks the first of my NHL Rebrand. Enjoy, and C+C is welcome.

(I adjusted the image size so we can see it, it was super small. In the future, copy the image address directly into the image button and it should display full-sized. PM if you have questions)

I think the concept itself looks pretty good. My main question about the Flames is always the same. Why the focus on black instead of yellow? For the red sweater, not having an outline on the numbers looks off compared to the other two sweaters. I'm also thrown off by the apparent use of two yellows, the logo being more gold and the uniforms having a volt-like color. I think the color balancing could use some work in general, as the white sweater has no yellow at all minus the logo. I like the third sweater but I think the striping is a little plain and it's missing TV numbers. I'm not sure you need the big red sides on the pants either.

Good start. I'd like to see just a little more cohesiveness. That's my C&C anyway. https://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons3/grin.png

Well, I think more gold than black looks too bright, so ice always been partial to more black on the Flames. And the gold thing, well, that's just a mistake on my part. MS Paint it always the best for colours.

Taking cues from Steelman's advice, I've checked this one more closely, and I think the Avalanche now have a good alternative look. I took cues from the swooping A logo for the striping on the home and away, and the mountain for the alternate.

Next up, one of my favorite teams, and one of my earliest concepts: the Boston Bruins. The Bruins get only a slight change in their striping to bring gold out more. For the alternate, I did a type of faux-back, I suppose, using brown and classic Montreal-esque striping with a classic Bruins B logo.

C+C is most welcome!

P.S. I'm not sure what happened to the outlines on the H&A names....
