I'm sad to say that this will be my last HJC post. I remember getting Ryan's email at around 3am after a long night of homework, and as tired as I was there was no way I was going to fall asleep! I was forced to make a tough decision a little over a week ago when I was offered a very great opportunity at school. I became the President of a student organization that serves as a professional society for my target career path. As part of my responsibilities, I will be representing my university around the state at different conferences and meetings. Unfortunately, I wouldn't have been able to put the time into posts that the artists and readers both deserve. I was happy to surprise a writer with a sudden opening, because I remember how happy I was when I was offered this slot. I can't wait to read Christian's Wednesday post next week, so I hope you have a blast when I hand you the reigns!
COTW Sep 1-7 vote (ends Friday @ 11:59pm Eastern)
DEL ReDesign Top 5 vote (Ends Saturday at 11:00am Eastern)
COTY August vote (ends Friday @ 11:59pm Eastern)
The beginning of the month means that it's time for another COTY contender vote! Check those concepts out, and send in your votes for the COTY August & COTW concepts by Friday. While you're at it you might as well vote for your favorite DEL Contest entry as well.
Without further ado, here's the last batch of concepts that I'll talk about:
TG - Philadelphia Flyers Fauxback Concept
Score: 8.5/10 - That number font is brilliant! It fits perfectly into the design.
Nathan N. - Calgary Flames Concept
Score: 6/5/10 - Choose white or yellow, and add some numbers. This concept could look amazing.
Nathan N. - Las Vegas Huskies Concept
Score: 5/10 - There's a big execution error in this concept. The white rectangle wasn't removed from around the logo, and the whites don't match. Watch out for things like this Nathan, and you'll have some great concepts on the way.
Ryan G. - Jedi Star Wars Concept
Score: 6.5/10 - Would the alternate jersey have some purple detail as an homage to Mace Windu?
Ryan G. - Mandalore Star Wars Concept
Score: 7/10 - I'd experiment with some different number styles. I think it's getting repetitive within the series.
Matt M. - Pittsburgh Penguins Soccer Concept
Score: 8.5/10 - This concept also pulls off using the same logo on both uniforms, while using two different color schemes. Great work!
Matt M. - San Jose Sharks Soccer Concept
Score: 8/10 - Like I said, I wish yellow was used a little more but otherwise this is a very good concept.
Justin S. - Philadelphia Flyers Alternate Concept
Score: 9/10 - Justin's concept wins my final COTW nomination as an HJC writer! The concept itself looks awesome, and on this template it looks even better!
Well that's all! I end each post with that phrase, but this week it's different. This week it seems so final. I was always told that hockey players don't cry so I won't but its a very bittersweet moment ending my last post. It is sad to leave HJC, but I have many exciting opportunities outside the site. It was an honor to review all of your concepts. I don't want to end my last post with that's all...
Until next time HJC.
