Hurricane Of Concept Art

There's no new poll today so it'll just be this post all by itself. I've had a bunch of Carolina Hurricanes concept art sent to me over the last couple of weeks so I thought I'd gather it all up to share.

We'll start with a pretty cool rebranding that involves a lighthouse as the Canes' primary logo as well as some slight changes to actual primary.



I don't know, for me, a lighthouse will always say Islanders. I don't know if I'll ever be able to shake that. I do like this logo and uniform set, though. Very nice quality.

While we're on the topic of redesigned logos, here's an interesting re-imagining of the current secondary mark. I know the team is based out of North Carolina, but does South Carolina also consider the Hurricanes their team since they go by just the Carolina name? Am I thinking about this too much?



It's a nice logo, but it needs some tightening up where the outline of the state is concerned. Way too much tiny detail in their. This would be like a six-inch patch. No need for all that detail. But even if it were the crest, it should still be cleaned up.

Here are a couple of third jersey designs.



And we'll finish things off tonight with another third jersey concept I found quite interesting.



Classic and what have you. Definitely a Colorado knock-off, but nice on its own merits. You be the judge. Let us know what you think about these in the comments.

By the way, I made wholesale updates to the Concepts Gallery this weekend so be sure to check that out. Added about 50 new images.

I like the lighthouse one a lot! But I'd be very angry to see them wear that. If anyone's wearing a jersey with a lighthouse on it, it's got to be my Islanders.

the black alternate really looks sharp, however i think that logo with the north carolina outline and the "tropical storm" flag really should be a secondary patch
the lighthouse i also agree belongs to the Isles

black concept with normal hurricane logo should be third jersey

Why include only the northern state of Carolina in the outline? South Carolina should be included as well!

yes, in several hurricanes promotions they include the south carolina border as well.
