Kit Design Tutorial for BeginnersHere

In Episode 3 of Noah from Template FC’s Photoshop and Photopea tutorial, he takes the introductory ideas for patterning from the last episode and runs with them. Showing us how we can modify and adapt what we’ve created to produce something entirely original, we learn we can go well beyond recolouring existing templates and elements.

Continuing the series of instructional videos applicable to Photoshop and/or Photopea, Noah from Template FC helpfully shows us, in Episode 2, how to add pattern designs to football kits. Again showing the methodology of the process, and explaining how to obtain the resources required - including iconic patterning that will be familiar to most football kit fans - the video explores the possibilities in detail.

To the benefit of members of DesignFootball.com present and future, DF partnered with Template FC to provide a series of free tutorials to assist the creation of concept/fantasy football kits. Covering options and tools available in Adobe Photoshop and the similar Photopea, this first episode covers the integration of different layers in terms of colouring, making them visible/invisible and adding/editing details, as well as providing an initial template to work on - with an aim of creating a f...

Egyptian Premier League giants Zamalek Sporting Club provide the subject matter for the 250th edition of DF's famed "Crest Redesign Competition Weekly" (CRCW). It may be a bit of a mouthful but this particular challenge has provided some incredible quality in its plentiful legs. Like with many of the greatest things on the site, members have managed this category themselves and kept things in order.

Presumably based on leaked information, DF member "fayed" has uploaded a prediction of the look of the 2022-23 season Nike FC Barcelona Home shirt. The upcoming design, which is being speculated on despite next season's still being unconfirmed, features the "blau" (blue) part of the famous Blaugrana name divided into royal blue and navy stripes, with a third stripe in the famous grenadine. This tri-stripe look recalls shirts worn by the French national team roughly a century ago, Bolton Wandere...

DF is 13 years old this year, and I thought it about time I outlined some of the occasions I’ve noticed an “IRL” release sharing traits with a design we’d earlier seen on the site. The following representations of both DF designs (cover versions, if you will) and notable releases of the last decade or so are the work of the brilliant Kitbliss's Chris Oakley. Each separate graphic draws a comparison between design ideas which made it to the real world, and similar thoughts that had appeared...

Hot on the heels of the recent 1992-93 Premier League Home Kit KitVote, we’re doing something slightly different for the second contest - something concept-based and SW6-based. We know that there are a lot of fantastic Chelsea shirt designs on DF, but a lot of these also feature on Instagram as well - and a lot more besides - so we thought we’d host a vote to decide the best of those on that image-sharing site.

The results are in and democracy has spoken. We now know what the best Premier League Home kit of the 1992-93 season is. And, in what will be a shock for some, it’s not Umbro’s Manchester United release. In fact, the lace-up collared effort doesn’t even make the podium.

After collating leaked information, member Corinth has provided a prediction of what the 2021-22 FC Barcelona Home shirt will look like. Incorporating the weave - or VaporKnit - of the new Nike ranges, the shirt also features the classic “Blaugrana” stripes of the iconic kit being adapted to include a dual-tone version of the crest.

Our AS Roma X New Balance New Kit Deal Challenge is coming along nicely, with a wardrobe provided by member Warrigal exemplifying the high standard of entries. The Home provides amber embellishment to the deep red base via not only the neat neck and the twist on a familiar NB cuff detail, but also some asymmetric panelling to the shoulder area. The naughties revival regarding excessive trim is in full swing, but this quasi-patchwork effect is more palatable than some recent submissions to that ...
