Philadelphia Flyers Concept Logo
Philadelphia Flyers Concept Logo By Jonathan Tweedle

The Flyers have got something going for them that no other team in the NHL has...ORANGE. The bright orange looks incredible on the Flyers jersey and I wanted to make sure that I didn't want to take anything away from this rare color. With that in mind I had a difficult time designing a jersey that did this, which is why the Flyers is one of the last jerseys I've posted in my rebrand series.
I tried a bunch of different ideas; some unique and others were just variations of things that have done before but nothing seemed to be working. That's when I realized, I had to simplify the look to give the orange the look it deserved.
The logo was pretty easy to decide on. With how awesome my Red Wings logo turned out I figured I'd try the same thing with it's winged counterpart, the Flyers logo. With that in mind I angled the two sides slightly because it looks awkward when no angled, and most notably, I've added the liberty bell, perhaps the most famous landmark in Philly. finding a good picture of the liberty bell turned out to be more difficult than I thought so I've used the Philadelphia Phillies logo and changed it to Flyers orange, and I gotta say, I'm liking the way it turned out.
I can't remember the last time I actually posted a concept on a Friday morning like I've said I would, wow feels good to be back on top of the ball with this stuff, thanks for your patience.
Numerous times throughout their recent history, the Flyers have attempted to use a black jersey in their rotation. I haven't been opposed to these jersey but they haven't been the best, which is why I think they keep getting rid of them. That being said I've taken my theory of simplicity that I applied to the Flyers home and away set I posted last week and directly applied it to a black 3rd jersey. In fact, the 3rd jersey is exactly the same design as the home and away set but with black as the primary color and orange as the accent. Clean, simple, and loving the orange accent, I think it works.
