Friday. 76! (Caden)

Hello fine readers! It's Caden here. I would like to announce that the NEW Rivermen jersey will be announced at a later date. Also, let us know in the comments what you think about the new template for the site, such as bringing back the top "pages" bar, and the addition of our templates and maps page. We also added a Jersey concept series page and a whole new website for the HCIHL! click the link at the top of the page or go to! I don't have much to say, except go to to check out the new logo the the Flames patented. On to the concepts!

PS. Today I will be trying out William Butala's Yay or Nay review system.

New York Islanders Chris Hengel
This is Chris' first concept on HCI, so let's cut to the cheese!

The colo(u)r balance on the away jersey! Minus the numbers
The grey element kept in the 3rd
The tie down collars 
The orange numbers on the black jersey
The filled in yoke on the third jersey

First, the presentation. The alternate gets lost because the background is so dark. Try using a light grey back ground.
The spacing of the numbers. The numbers seem too far apart.
While were on the topic of numbers, I think the away numbers should be Blue, and the home numbers be White.
The NOB font. It seems childish. Try using a arial or block font instead.
Using the same template for all 3 jerseys. The point of a third jersey is to be different. Not just a recolo(u)red Home/Away jersey. Check out our templates page for some great options! 

I liked the colo(u)r balance in the jerseys, not as much the numbers. I also loved the yokes on all the jerseys, but aspeicialy the 3rd. That's really all I have to say about the jerseys, so...

Concept Rating, 8/10

Team Turkey (LOL) Jake88
Jake88 brings us a concept for the HJC bottom 10 comp. Go vote for it! And my Isreal one! And Justin's South Africa one!

The wordmark
The crest
The striping
The yoke on the home, the shoulder patches on the away
The socks
The pants logo

The small NOB
The fake laces. Not Jake but Nike

Jake brings us a amazing concept where (for once) I'm not complaining! 

Concept Rating, 9.9/10

Hey guys! Thanks for reading! What do you think of Butala's Review system? It sure makes it easier for me! Tell me what you think in the comments! 

Again, Thanks for reading!!!



  1. I don't see how that font is "childish" to you, in my opinion that font is more "mature" than the Arial that you suggested. That font is just a block font with too many outlines. Also I don't think that Justin sent his South Africa concept in...

    1. The font looked like a bubble font to me.


HCI is a site where concept artists send in their concepts to get constructive criticism. Any comment that is profane, mean spirited, racist, or has nothing to do with hockey concepts will be removed.
