Black and white NHL logos

first_img 842 posts I’ve already done the Dallas one and it looks great. I want to give every other logo the best opportunity to look just as sharp as this one.Thanks for your help. The Florida one is going to be useful so thanks Survival. I don’t like the overuse of grey in Ottawa’s though. It’s too much..

Overkill.I said that this isn’t what the OP was looking for…I’ll explain – I’m converting each individual Pantone value into grayscale values based on their “lightness”, which is part of the CIE-L*ab measurements. Each color in the logo will have a different shade of Gray.To me, just an interesting alternative way to look at the colors used.I understand. I just figured that some colors are so close that such a minute percentage difference in shading would be unnecessary. So even though the darker color of the plane is different than the lighter color of the leaf, they could be reproduced as the same shade without any loss of detail. 5,031 posts Black and white NHL logos 921 Formerly ColorWerx and PANTONE Location:Burnsville, MN Share this post Posted June 27, 2013 Bayne TruColor Share on other sites Link to post 17,857 posts Members zpqmaowl 0 0 Posted June 28, 2013 Share this post Bayne Link to post All Activity slapshot 921 0 Share this post Formerly ColorWerx and PANTONE 162 Bayne 921 slapshot 921 I’m dead, inside and out; I’m still dead Share this post 2,550 posts This topic is now closed to further replies. Link to post Don’t take any wooden nickels. 567 TruColor Not really. There’s a heap of poorly converted logos in there, and none of them use grey, which I want to. For instance, the new Dallas logo needs grey for it to look good. Most logos that only use black and white don’t look as interesting without a touch of grey to add depth. Obviously the Detroits and Torontos don’t factor into this, but most do. 2,550 posts 720 14,762 posts Link to post Share on other sites Location:Chicago 7,674 posts Most vector graphics packages include logos in B&W and/or grayscale.I’ve got “official” B&W versions for pretty much every NHL mark back to the mid-’90s.However, the vast majority of them are B&W only; no gray added for effect.

I’m foreseeing that some of the logos will translate fine to B&W with even the inclusion of grey for the more detailed logos, however I don’t plan on using more than 1 shade of it. Therefore I’m left with 3 “colours”. The logos that I’m thinking I may have problems with this restriction on are:OttawaFloridaWinnipegYou would think Chicago would fit into that as well, but looking at this hat I think it can quite easily be done using only 3 shades.Ottawa is tricky because you have the black outlines, the white face and then the gold helmet and red fabric. I don’t want to have to use grey next to grey, but I can’t think of a different option. Maybe make the fabric white as well? Winnipeg is an obvious problem with the inherent use of grey and two toned leaf. Maybe I should simplify those two shapes. Florida is similar to Ottawa with the golds and reds.Anyway, what are your suggestions for how to do these logos in B&W?
