Los Angeles Saints Soccer Club
The Club Name:
I kept the team in LA hence the team having the name Los Angeles Saints, the Saints part of the new name comes from the City nickname being the City of Angels so being called The Saints of Los Angeles (also a Motley Crue Album Title) would tie into the whole Angel theme the City has and also fit in with one of the biggest Rock bands in the world, so that would bring in a lot more interest into the club!
The Club Crest:
The Crest is made up of the flag of LA in-cased in a unique shell not used by any other team in world Football! At the top and bottom of the logo is the team name. Followed by at the top of the flag of California, a pair of swooping wings holding a Football to incorporate the Saints name even further into the roots of the club and also angels is the nickname of LA so the wings also tie in with that again! The ball is there to obviously signify Football. The colours White and Black are also used on the logo to (White) show again the links with LA being known as the City of Angels as white is a pure colour, associated with Angels and (Black) to give a bold, sharp finish.
The Home Kit:
The Home colours are the Sunset Golden Yellow off of the LA Flag and White from the whole City of Angels theme the club has because it is a colour associated with Angels and being pure. To combine these colours I put them into a stripe design on the shirt. The shorts and socks are both predominately White with dashes of Sunset Golden Yellow.
The Away Kit:
The Away colours are Red and Black, the Red is taken from the Bear and Star on the Official Seal of LA, it also a colour that is on the LA flag as well and the Black comes from wanting to make the kit the opposite of the white shown on the Home Kit so they did not clash! I then decided to use a singular Black stripe down on one side of the Red shirt as it somewhat resembles the shape of California but in a more upright position. The shorts and socks are then both Black with dashes of Red placed onto them.
I kept the clubs current sponsor Corona on both of my 2 designs but changed the Adidas Kit Supplier into my own Brand, Turner Sports.
