I love the first one! I especially like the tie ups at the neck line! Makes for a very vintage look! Submit it to the Wings, you just may be surprised!

EDIT: I like the last one too! Nice work!

One thing is a little off.. It's not a big deal at all, but in the old jerseys the wheel was actually centered in the jersey, not the whole logo. Like I said though, no big deal. Those are great renderings by the way!

I think the last one may actually have a shot at being worn on ice. Its the best of everything and nails the looks vintage but its a brand new design aspect.

Very good work :thumbup:

Good rule of thumb is always take an octopus everywhere. Better to have one and not need it than find yourself thinking, "Damn, I wish I had that octopus".

This dud Is handsome. I even dig the fact that it's so traditional that it doesn't have a name on the back.

Maybe since the Wings don't listen to our trade ideas and suggestion on line combos they'll listen to this one :-). I wish that I was this creative.

Thanks for all the positive feedback, guys.

Maybe if my future after my Master's in Physics doesn't work out, I can try to get a job working to fix some of the horrendous excuses for jerseys worn by international clubs? :ph34r:

This design with the D on the shoulders. Nice work.

:thumbup::thumbup::thumbup::thumbup::thumbup: Definitely the best. Love the "D" on the shoulders and the tie at the neck! What about the stripes on the socks?

Main phone number for the Wings is 313-983-6606, Im sure if they want to talk to you will find a way through this number.

Send an email to the PR or Advertising depts.

I would take off the D's on the shoulders and you may want to put the Winter Classic patch on the front of the shoulder if you are serious about pitching the design to them. I think the design without the D;s is the best interpretation of the original uni and screwing with it is just adding stuff that doesnt need to be there. The D;s of the first rendering worked well but I dont think its fits with the last iteration.

A weird rub is if you expect any compensation for the design if it did happen to be used. You may want to get an "in" before sending any images or designs. After there is a written agreement about how the design will be used and royalties for it, if any, then send the designs to them.

Reason I say that is large organizations, sports or not, love unsolicited works because they can up and use them and give you nothing, even credit you designed them.

Good luck, I hope I can buy one too!!!

Yeah, thanks for the heads up. I actually thought of that too. I would obviously see what they could do for me before I sent them anything, but if they wouldn't budge on that then I wouldn't be too disappointed to send them something anyway because the recognition would be mind blowingly cool.

I agree on seeing what you dreamt up, credit or not, would be awesome. Just brought it up because I have seen this first hand through my ex's work. Designs were stolen and presented as their own with absolutley no compensation.

Here comes the buzzkill, real world, lawyer powered, life sucking reality of the situation.

Dont discount the fact that there is quite a bit of money possible if your design is used. Literally millions of dollars in royalties if you consider just the sweaters sold. The downside is that teams have a lot of copyright law on their side. Unsolicited works with copyrighted logos are theirs to keep (or copy) and also to prosecute against if used without permission. Short and sweet is that you want to make yourself solicited ie; the DRW comes to you for design work.. That isnt all that easy but the only way you are kept in the loop and have a possibilty of any recognition, monetarily or not.

NOW. If you dont give two s***s about recognition or 1 dollar in royalties from sales of sweaters, by all means spread this design all over the web. Get an email list of the DRW front office and spam them with it. Suck thing is some graphic design firm will take the credit if they copy you and make a hefty sum of cash in the process. If anything you copyrighted yourself to an extent by adding your name to every rendering but a simple change absolves themselve of that. Thats why youd want an insider that can agree to a solicitation of your work.

Regardless of the crapola that is business and everything that goes with it, LGW.com will know its yours if they wear that sweater at the big house qnd Ill give you massive props for it alone.

Im sure this forum could probably get enough joojoo going at the DRW that a contest could get you or someone else here picked to design just for the PR.

Again, good luck with getting it seen nationwide, I think you have a good eye for design and take artistic criticism the way any graphic designer should... do what other people say looks good lol.

I wanna see the Wings in a uni like this and I hope you get some credit evgen if its all access tix to the classic.

I can't even begin to thank you for everything in this post. You're awesome. I appreciate you taking the time to pass your knowledge of this kind of stuff to me.

All in all, like I said, obviously it would be cool to get paid, but if the organization essentially said "hey dude, sorry, you used our logo, so if you expect any money, tough. But...ehhh...is it cool if we still use it? No? Tough," then they did use it, I frankly don't give a damn. Potentially seeing my design on the ice would be more than enough for me.

But yeah, the money thing, I'll try that first ;)
