Cole's comments: Tonight I tweaked the Anaheim Ducks uniforms. I was never a fan of the name "Mighty Ducks" as I thought it was a little too cutesy for grown men playing sports, so I used to pray one day they'd change their name to the Anaheim Ducks. Low and behold they finally did, but I feel they went a little too far in re-branding and made some bad choices along the way. I really like the way gold and orange look next to each other, especially with black and the little bit of silver they use. Something always seemed off about it and they didn't look or feel like the Ducks to me. They also ditched one of the most iconic and visually interesting logos in the league. I understand why they did, but I wish they hadn't. Since they recently brought it back in the form of a shoulder patch on their alternate jersey, I've decided to use it in my concept and try to tie both eras together into one cohesive identity.
My original plan was to make them purple, gold, orange, and black, but the more I played around with it, the more it annoyed me that I'd be making the Ducks and Kings wear very similar colors. Without eggplant, if I wanted to incorporate what I consider "duck colors" into this concept, I had to go with jade. The original shade of jade looked a little too jarring to be the primary uniform color, so I decided to darken the jade slightly. I paired it with the current shade of ducks metallic gold (thanks to ssur.org) and a modified (warmer) version of the yellow anaheim used on their original uniforms.
After the jump, the Anaheim Ducks...
