Rebranding The Stars, Revisited

I've got new artwork from Matt today and an update on his next rebrand.

Two weeks ago he added the Dallas Stars to his Rebranding the NHL series. One major factor in his design was dropping one of the primary colors — green. He even explained why but that doesn't mean green wouldn't have looked good on the uniforms.

Here's a different take on the uniforms of his latest rebrand.

The St. Louis Blues are next on Matt's list. He's planning to have it done soon and has offered up a few tidbits about what to expect from it. He calls the new primary logo a "tasteful, vintage style" modernization of the Blue Note the club has worn for more than 40 years. He is, however, working on two additional original logos so you will get something new.

I know I'm looking forward to seeing what he comes up with.

Wallpaper Wednesday VIII

All the third jersey news caused me to skip last week's Wallpaper Wednesday but it's back now with some really great artwork to adorn your computer. Last time, we finished things off with Saku Koivu. Well I liked this one so much, I'm starting with him today.

Here's Alex Ovechkin — I believe we've had him featured in this series a few times before.

Got a logo-based wallpaper for the Senators.

Not too sure why Crosby's so prominent in it though, even if he is face first on the ice.

I've been sent several Islanders wallpapers. These were some of the best ones — Bruno Gervais and Trent Hunter.

This one highlights the future of the Isles.

And finally, this one speaks for itself.

Back next week with more.
