Kit Design Tutorial for BeginnersHere

A great tradition in German football is Werder Bremen wearing a special Christmas shirt around “Weihnachten”, though the substitution of a Christmas tree for the normal diamond crest on a standard shirt perhaps leaves people wanting a little more.

So in steps and the 232nd stage of the Kit of the Week challenge - a special Christmas Kit Challenge, no less.

After covering Argentina and Liverpool - *sweating emoji* - in successive stages of the Kit of the Week challenge, 231 went a little more towards the obscure.

With the spotlight on Angolan side Clube Desportivo 1º de Agosto, there were several entries that had a whiff of Milan and Nice - understandably, considering “Os Rubro e Negros”’ colours - but the winning effort included a specific reference to the club name - digitally - in the base print, and that might be what secured victory for Corinth.

The Crest Redesign Competition Weekly (CRCW) takes in football teams from around the world and, consequently, the last stage to close in 2021 was dedicated to a club plying their trade in the A(ustralian)-League.

Your correspondent is not so into Australian football, or “soccer”, and has been known to mistakenly refer to the Western Sydney side as the “Warriors” rather than “Wanderers”. Here’s hoping the Wanderers' notable appearance in CRCW will finally put that error to bed.

Hot on the heels of the Argentina stage, the 230th chapter of the Kit of the Week challenge focussed on another football great: Liverpool Football Club.

To say it didn’t disappoint is a huge understatement. We were treated to a patterned number where the predicted 2022-23 Nike template was deployed, a striking design branded as “Nike AIR”, a photorealistic effort hanging from Anfield’s Shankley Gates - so, so cool - and improvements on the American manufacturer’s 2020-21 and 2021-22 (“all-red”) releases - amongst other masterpieces!

While obscure teams being chosen for Kit of the Week (KOTW) stages is a lot of fun, you can’t really beat the occasional giant of football getting the treatment.

Enter 229 late last year and its focus on the Argentine national side. It was an absolute cracker.
