Here’s what we know. The team name will be unveiled sometime in November, unless it gets delayed again. They will select Desert, Silver, or Golden Knights. It’s possible the team is Vegas Something Knights rather than Las Vegas Something Knights. And the jerseys will include two things, a “steel mesh” and a Red Rock inspired color.
With those ideas in mind, we had our pair of graphic designers take a stab at what they think the team will look like when they hit the ice next October.
First off, here’s our resident jersey concept artist Isaac Palestino’s take on what The Creator may have in mind.
Isaac was focusing much more on the concept for the design than the logo, so he chose to leave the space on the front for the logo blank. Here are a few logos we’ve shared in the past that may fit perfectly in the middle of these beautiful sweaters.
On to the next design, this one comes to us from our favorite Canadian admirer, Sparky Chewbarky.
First off, that Sword in the Vegas Star logo is absolutely brilliant. The designers at Adidas would be wise to utilize the Vegas Star, the Strip, or something else distinctly Vegas to link the team to the city… something the name doesn’t really do.
Sparky spent a lot of time breaking down the World Cup of Hockey jerseys to get a feel of what be believes Adidas prefers in their designs. This is what he came up with.
- Minimal striping – more like blocks of color on uniforms
- No waist or pants striping
- Colors in logos don’t necessarily need to match uniform stripe colors (North America)
- Inter-twining letter logos
- High shoulder line with high arm numbers
- Straight waist hem
When they unveil the actual jerseys, drop terms like “straight waist hem” and “high shoulder line” to your friends. You’ll sound like a genius.
Finally, just cause these jerseys are so amazing. Here are the Silver Knights jerseys we shared a few weeks ago.
