With the news of the trademark being filed for the names Silver Knights, Golden Knights, and Desert Knights, Vegas has been buzzing with discussion over which adjective they prefer.
Way back in November our graphic design wiz Isaac Palestino designed a Silver Knights jersey that was absolutely brilliant. But one design simply isn’t enough.
Today, we were sent another Silver Knights design from Newfoundland, Canada’s, Troy Birmingham that is quite possibly the sleekest concept we’ve ever been able to share. But before we share the jerseys, let’s discuss why Silver Knights makes the most sense of the three names available.
Nevada is the Silver State. Working in the “Battle Born” slogan with the Silver State is an amazing concept that has a connection to Vegas. Ok, enough discussing, let’s see some concepts!
Yeah. These are sick. The blue color is pulled directly from the Las Vegas skyline and truly different than anything we’ve seen in professional sports. The “V” is obviously meant to represent Vegas but also be the stone than the sword is stuck into. The logo is simple enough to be printed at any size, while complex enough to be unique.
Troy did an incredible job with these and the NHL would be wise in my opinion to scrap what ever they are working on, throw him a couple million bucks, and unveil these bad boys next week.
If Adidas can out do this, we are in for a real treat whenever they do finally announce the name, colors, logos, and sweaters. Can’t wait!
**Huge thank you to Troy Birmingham for designing these and allowing us to post them on the site. Please do me a solid and check out more from Troy at TBCreative.ca and follow him on Twitter @TroyBirmingham**
