Blackhawks Fan Art For Your Viewing Pleasure

I've got some Chicago Blackhawks concept designs to share. Let's dive right in.

Here's a set of 'Hawks jerseys in the new Rbk EDGE style. They're pretty sharp — and safe, as they're in keeping with the current design.

I like the black alternate jersey with the old logo. It's a rather nice set that I think most Blackhawks fans would have a hard time complaining about.

Personally, I've never been one to believe that Chicago has one of the best uniforms in sports (as is widely believed) and I don't think it would hurt if they went with a complete overhaul. And yes, I'm prepared to take the beating I've got coming to me for uttering such filth in an open forum.

Anyway, if someone can point out what features of this uniform make it so good, I'd be all ears. If not, then I don't know. Just enjoy these fan designs.

And these too.



I think these designs are pretty cool, mixing the old with the new. The stripes are different, but not all bad. Would Blackhawks fans object to something along these lines?

What do you guys think? Am I full of shit about the Blackhawks logo? Is it really as good as everyone says? Would you like me to stop talking about it?

Yes, you're full of shit. Never speak badly of the 'hawks jerseys ever again. It's the only thing the team has left, because winning sure isn't something we're known for.

I'm not a fan of any changes with the Chicago Blackhawks logo AND their uniforms. Any subtle change in the collar to incorporate the RBK Edge template like what the Red Wings did with theirs is the only change I'll support.

And what's with the old logo on the black jersey? The black jersey is a new thing, within the last decade, why would it be portrayed as the "throwback"?

I would rather see the third jersey as the old barberple style instead of the black

i think the black with vintage logo logo should be a tad biiger

I thought the NHL was not having a third jersey this year?

They're not. These are concept designs. Just because Bettman is saying no doesn't mean graphic artists can't dream a little. Thanks for the comments, all!

Yeah, you're pretty much full of shit about the 'Hawks logo and jerseys. They're classic and should never be screwed with. Only a few logos should be sacrosanct: Blackhawks, Red Wings, Canadians are the three that come to mind. Many say the Flyers are on that list, but I think (and here's where I'm full of shit) that they're long overdo for a redesign - even if it's only a secondary logo for an eventual third jersey.

Chris...no one should care if you don't like the Hawks jersey. Personally, I think it's the best jersey in the league, and if something isn't broken, don't fix it. If you think the jersey needs an overhaul, that's fine. It isn't going to happen, but everyone is entitled to their opinion.

your biggest complaint about the Hawks logo has been a "lack of defined color scheme" How much more defined color scheme do you need for the blackhawks. Its been the same since 1955. Going back to 1937 they had most of the colors in the logo also. The redesign in 1955 contains every color in there now. You can't get more defined than that. Their colors are red white and black. They use the other colors as accents.
