Kit Design Tutorial for BeginnersHere

One of the finest Kit of the Week (KOTW) stages we’ve had recently was the one that was instigated due to a certain Northeast Premier League side’s takeover by the Public Investment Fund of Saudi Arabia (PIF). You may have read about the latter.

The double nelson chapter dedicated to Newcastle United delivered in spades, with many seeing the possibility of current kit supplier Castore being replaced by one of the big three - adidas, Nike or Puma - and the current, kit-four-mulating sponsor making way for the logo of the state-owned oil company, Saudi Aramco.

Ted Lasso has been a sensation that is currently attracting awards and plaudits like moths to a flame, so it’s perhaps no surprise that it recently received the honour of being the subject of a Kit of the Week (KOTW) stage.

AFC Richmond - the fictional club that the eponymous Lasso coaches - is surely our second favourite London side nicknamed “The Greyhounds”, after the previously thought inimitable Streatham Rovers, and is therefore well-deserving of the concept treatment from the superb designers we’re proud to call members. Indeed, even the legendary Drake Ramberg has since offered up a fantasy creation for Apple TV’s fantasy creation.

The winners of a pair of subsequent installments have been announced, with entries and voting respectively closing on another couple today, but before that came the news it was two in two for TRIDENTE, the victor in the 220th stage of the Kit of the Week (KOTW) challenge.

The focus on Italian side Brescia got us salivating over all the entries featuring the iconic white chevron on royal blue - we conjured up images of them being worn by the likes of Andrea Pirlo, Roberto Baggio and, of course, Dario Hübner - but it was actually a change design which came out on top.

It’s Sunday, so the arresting Missile FC designs are about to become subject to the armistice, but the week past delivered the confirmation of the winning design in the 272nd edition of the Crest Redesign Competition Weekly (CRCW).

Aegon, after losing their proverbial belt to Rabbi for a week, is back on top. Their Ararat Yerevan creation souped up the current crest, added to the border a representation of Mount Ararat, and even turned the White Eagles’ famous avian emblem blue, all to hugely aesthetically pleasing effect.
