The advantage of using Adobe products daily, they have created a solid base/foundation for other big software to come out to base their layout and functions around. To keep my brain fresh in the designer world, I always like to learn and practice new digital programs, that said my new ‘toy’ is google web designer (GWD). What a fun and fascinating program that works well and is easy to use, thanks to the knowledge of AfterEffects for key frames, HTML knowledge of Dreamweaver, Adobe Flash experience, all adds up to being able to navigate within GWD. Granted for me designing wise is the #fun part, but the next step is navigating the seas of DoubleClick and their numerous solutions to showcase your ad design and/or AdWords.
Besides my love for design my other passion is NHL hockey, specifically the Vancouver Canucks. Since my primary years at school I’ve been a fan, and as of recently I’ve been thinking about the new uniforms that can be made thanks to Adidas taking over starting for next season. Currently the Canucks colours in my humble opinion vastly resembles the Toronto Maple Leafs colour scheme a bit too much. So my suggestion is to darken the blues and brighten the green to contrast the midnight blue, along with adding some tactical lines on the arms for some strength and add a modern look to the ol’ uniform, also I got rid of the ‘VANCOUVER’ arced text on the logo, yes it’s time to get rid of the text as most should know about our beloved Vancouver, BC by now – at least in the NHL world. Here is what it would look like on a Bo Horvat picture. I also added some green around the logo to continue on with some more green touches to the uniform overall.
