New Sharks, Canadiens Jersey Design Concepts

I was pointed the way of another fan-made jersey design concept for the San Jose Sharks. The designer doesn't seem to be a big fan of the orange being added to the color scheme as its used very sparingly here.

It's neat and I think it could probably work. Though I'd expect to see something rather different when the Sharks actually unveil their new jerseys in September.

And while we're looking at fan-designed jersey concepts, I've got one for Montreal Canadiens fans. Like many others, it's based off of this year's all-star jerseys so the real deal probably won't look anything like this. The one thing I wouldn't be surprised to see is the giant logo on the front. That seems to be a theme among all the jerseys that have already been officially unveiled.

Anyway, I haven't heard anything official from the Canadiens regarding an announcement or unveiling date, so we'll keep our ears and eyes peeled until we do.

Man, I'll tell you, can't make anyone happy these days :)

I did up the design for those Sharks Jerseys, as you say, because I was seeing far too much orange in the mock-ups I'd seen to that date.

However, now that I've shared them around a bit.. what is the most common comment I'm getting? That there's NOT ENOUGH ORANGE! This after people have spent the last week screaming about how there's far too much orange and that orange is a bad choice, yadda yadda yadda.

So I give up. haha.

I do think I could have made the sides a little more narrow though, now that I look at them.

Yeah, don't take it personally. Most people complain when they don't like something but tend to keep quiet when they do. Your problem is, you just got all the people that liked the orange on your back. Personally, I think either one could work. Thanks for commenting!
