A few months ago I shared some concept creations for the newly announced Las Vegas franchise from the talented sparky chewbarky from sportslogos.net. Now that there is official word of the color scheme for the Las Vegas team, sparky is back with a brand new design that’s sure to get the hockey world talking.
Concept Logos:The primary logo speaks for itself. As is customary with medieval times, knights rode around with their shield and sword. It’s a classic tribute with an awesome layout. It also includes the “Star” that you’d find on the infamous “Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas” sign. The secondary logo really pops. Using the outline of a knight’s helmet, sparky incorporated the Las Vegas initial that really stand out on the side.
While the first two are what sparky is pushing to be the main logos, I’ve attached the War Horse logo and the Knight logo because I felt they could add to the discussion. Much like the initials “NJ” in the Devils logo and the “HW” in the Hartford Whalers logo, if you don’t look closely enough, the “LV” in the War Horse logo might go unnoticed. As for the Knight logo, I just think it looks badass.
Concept Jerseys:Sparky: “I’ve made a couple of uniform compilations and added a couple of new images.
The “Star” logo is inspired by the most well-known Vegas landmark…the “Welcome to Las Vegas” sign. With the gold, black and silver-grey colours, it’s going to be difficult to distance the new Vegas unis from those of Boston and Pittsburgh. So perhaps a mainly gold uniform is the way to go.”
He’s done it again! Such a simple design that works so well with the gold, black, and grey color scheme. As he mentioned, the colors have been done before, but while Pittsburgh and Boston’s jerseys are a bit basic in their layout, the Las Vegas ones are anything but.
They’re all fantastic jerseys that I’m positive the residents of Las Vegas will enjoy, but I’m partial to the alternate striped jerseys. It’s unique to see the two-tone V-shaped colors going down the jersey. I also think the jersey with the helmet really works best in that color scheme.
Overall, sparky did a bang-up job again and will continue putting out more concepts. What is your take on the jerseys? What do you like the best? What would you change? What logos should be used?
