Allen, TX- The Allen AMERICANS Professional Hockey Club, “AA” affiliate of the Seattle Kraken, today announced the final winner of the #SeasonXIII Warm-Up Jersey Design Contest.
Lucas Daitchman is a freelance graphic designer and hockey fan from Montreal. He currently works for the Premier Hockey Federation (PHF), having designed logos, fan jerseys, merchandise, and broadcast and social media graphics for the league. You can check out his social media on Twitter @LDConcepts and on Instagram @LD.Concepts.
Daitchman says, “the Americans’ retro jersey was inspired by hockey sweaters worn in the early 20th century. It carries over the era’s high concentration of stripes, with a twist: additional stars are formed on the sleeves and chest by inverting the red and blue stripes in select regions.”
The sweater design contest featured more than 30 entries from a variety of graphic designers and individuals from around the nation. Three different winning designs were chosen, with each designer getting the chance to help craft their release. Public voting was announced by the AMERICANS back in July. Revisions were made to the winning designs to meet team brand guidelines and sponsor requirements, along with minor alterations following production discussions with AMERICANS primary uniform provider, Athletic Knit.
