0089: Vintage Blackhawks

Recently, Micah Loyed's work was the subject of a concepts series called Vintage Week. Afterward, he wanted to throw in one more idea. This is what he put together for the Blackhawks. I really do like the simplified crest design.

0084: New York Americans

It's a Retro Weekend so Micah Loyed is digging up the past with his New York Americans concept, which is absolutely superb, in my view. I'm especially enjoying the secondary logo. But overall, I like the simplistic look. More NHL teams could stand to look this good.

0075: Vintage Seattle

Vintage Week wraps up today as Micah Loyed gives us Seattleites something to think about. He's resurrected the Seattle Metropolitans. Here's how he describes the design: "The main crest has a nod to the Supersonics but incorporating 'Seattle' in a manor that is a tad more legible than the beloved 'Seattle on the path of the S' design."

But wait, there's more...

This one is just a bonus. Micah also put together another Emerald City-inspired concept for us. Thoughts on the Seattle Warbirds?

0074: Vintage Dixie Flyers

Micah Loyed's Vintage Week is straying away from the NHL now to look back at a minor league team from the 1960s — one seemingly tailor-made for a vintage concept series. The Nashville Dixie Flyers played in the Eastern Hockey League from 1962 to 1971. They're known for their purple and gold uniform colors.

0073: Vintage Bruins

Vintage Week rages on with a fantastic retro-style Boston Bruins concept by featured concept artist Micah Loyed. The set even includes a 90th anniversary patch — an event which is still a couple of years off. Still, with great colors and a beautiful uncluttered design, I've yet to see anything bad from Micah in this series.
