Steve Yzerman's NHL: Los Angeles

Los Angeles Kings
I've always thought that the crown logo was overcluttered. Then they release the new set and it is such a step down logo wise. To me, the Kings never have really had a logo set that I truly love. I went out to work on that stat. Just like the Sharks and Lightning, I had to make it simple and bold.

Instead of making a logo from scratch, I thought the crown's shape was just what I wanted. It was just how I'd use it. I changed the points, even though it all looks slightly the same. Instead of circles, I used diamonds. I thought it looked more like jewels. I just went with what will get the look across that it is a crown, without being too out there with it. Simplicity is the key. I needed an alt, so i just went with the shape they used for a time with a similar color scheme. I also introduced a new script. The same is found on the numbers, which you will see.
On the jerseys, I've had this idea the whole time. The Habs' look is great, and could be used again. With this, it makes the logo pop out, and the white's contrast on black makes the look sharp. I DID decide on monochrome for this one, so calm down. The white is just a white version of the home, so nothing crazy.

  1. I like it, but it looks a bit too much like the Blainville-Boisbriand Armada's jerseys.
