In shaping the new design, the focus was sharpened to create an overall image that expressed excitement, speed and a competitive edge. In addition, a classic color palette of black and metallic gold was developed, with an accent of orange as a metaphorical link to the team's Orange County home. The result was a strong, typographic mark anchored by a stylized "D" that echoed the image of a duck's foot or footprint. The lettering for the player names and numbers were a team-created font used on every Ducks jersey thereafter. The new uniforms were an evolution of the earlier sweater design but with gold, white and orange sweeping stripes influenced by the curves of the "D" in the Ducks logo. Set with a new look for the 2006-07 season, the Ducks made history and won California's first Stanley Cup.
