Lately, it seems the NHL Winter Classic is the most popular source of inspiration amongst concept artists. In that spirit, today begins a new series called Winter Classic Weekends. Every weekend — until I run out — you can find new concept art for the Winter Classic. It won't be limited to the 2013 game in Michigan, though obviously that's the basis for today's design by Ryan Haslett. He's gone all out to create uniforms and a logo.
Ryan was also involved the Winter Classic concept below. His graphic treatments and Winter Classic logo were used by Josh Gold to complement his sweater designs.
