1st Contest Entry

The first entry for the North Stars contest comes from Goal Line Design. He used a nice, simple design and the 3D N logo. Green and yellow looking good!

Northern Inspiration

Goal Line Design put together a concept for the Wild based strongly on the old Minnesota North Stars uniforms. The old striping design has been updated in Wild colors, and the circle logo is the crest. I think this is a nice tribute to the North Stars, great job!

Back In My Day...(Part 1)

While celebrating the 50th post of Wild About Design, I took a look at the past. How this blog came about, and how the Wild's look came to be. Let's take a history lesson, shall we?

The Interest is Born

Back in the summer of 2007, Reebok Edge jerseys took over the NHL. When I found out my favorite team, the Minnesota Wild, of course, might be getting new jerseys, I started to pay attention. People were speculating that the Wild would make some changes to their uniforms, possible making the red alternate the home jersey. People started whipping up designs and posted them about.

Then, an image was leaked. It was that of the shoulder/collar area of a red jersey, supposedly the Wild's new home jersey.

At this point, my interest was growing rapidly. A short time later, the Wild's official website announced the new jerseys would be unveiled on September 7th.

I couldn't wait. More concepts popped up, each claiming they knew what was coming.

Another image was leaked, giving fans a good look at the new home jersey.

Finally, the new jerseys were unveiled. And they remain today.

It was the excitement surrounding the whole deal that got me hooked. I started looking into these sort of things all the time. Stick around for Part 2 of my story to hear how Wild About Design was born.

50 Posts!

It's time to celebrate! This is the 50th Post at Wild About Design. I have enjoyed running this blog and I hope you all have enjoyed visiting it. Thanks to everyone who has contributed. Hopefully the contribution will continue.

I hope to have a few posts soon about history and such. Stay tuned!

We are having a contest! Please send in your entries at wildaboutdesign@hotmail.com.

Minnesota North Stars Contest

The task is simple: design the uniforms of the Minnesota North Stars if they were to enter the NHL today. All entries must include a home and road jersey. Alternate jerseys and extra equipment (helmets, pants, gloves, socks) are optional. You can do whatever you want, have fun!

Green and Wheat

Goal Line Design sent in a new concept for a home and road jersey for the Wild. The jerseys are green and wheat, both following an old-school theme, similar to Minnesota's current home uniforms. Excellent work! Also, be sure to check out what's going on at Goal Line Design.

Stripes: Part 2

Last Monday I posted a concept from Tex, a green jersey with red and wheat stripes. Well, he also made a wheat version! Once again, great work. I love how the green and red stripes look together.

Tex recently sent in a cool concept for the Wild. It is a green jersey with the primary logo. The unique part is the stripes. Alternating red and wheat stripes on the sleeves and waist really give this concept a old-time feel. Don't forget the 10th Anniversary patch!
