I’ve been in a big soccer mood lately and decided to try my hand at a series of of national team crests from around the world! I’ve been teaching myself illustrator over the last year and am finally getting to a point now where I’m really comfortable making logos with it, and am eager to keep learning as I go. This has been a fun challenge for me, both creatively and in execution of working illustrator. No kits as of yet, but I’d love to pair these crests with some kit concepts eventually down the road. So a brief intro to the content itself: it’s only been within the last year and a half that I’ve grown to become something of a good soccer/football fan. The World Cup got me really going, and since then I’ve watched more and more of it. Very recently I’ve been digging into the history of the game and, in particular, the history of the World Cup and the sport’s greatest players. That’s what’s had me interested in doing more design work for the sport altogether. With all that said, I’m still learning all the traditions of different teams and such aesthetically, so a lot of these concepts may be more fresh takes than others, but some will also be updates/modernizations of crests as I see fit, so I hope to showcase a little bit of everything here. Anyways, first crest up is South Korea! I grew to become a big fan of Korea’s switch-out to black from blue on thier crest and primary shorts, and decided to keep them going on that route. I really like their use of a Siberian Tiger, but the full-body one they use now can tend to look like a blob from even a short distance, so I chose to make a new larger head rendering for more boldness. And there’s a Taegeuk soccer ball, as a nod to the flag, to indicate “football association”, and to add a small dash of relevant color to the crest. I’d love to hear your thoughts and critique! I’d also love to know what kind of improvements I could make in terms of craft. The tiger head is probably the most detailed thing I’ve traced on illustrator so far, so I’d love to know how that’s working and what I could do to improve. Also, so far I have five total crests done, so I’ll probably post one a day or every other day to keep it rolling while I make more. Thanks for viewing and reading!
Quite a few teams already qualified and more will qualify in the coming international break, so it's time.There's been a steady trickle of leaks for months, but now the leaks are really starting to be flooding in Logo Official Ball Referee kits (available in blue, black, red, yellow and green)
I'm jumping outside of my comfort zone a little with this one! I've barely ever dipped my toes into soccer concepts, but really wanted to today. A couple of things have inspired treading into the soccer waters. Firstly, I love Sweden's new crest and felt a nudge to make some kits to go along with it. Secondly, through some recent geneology work, I've discovered that a much deeper heritage based out of Sweden than I initially thought - one of my great-great grandmother's family generations back all hail from either the Jonkoping or Goteborg areas. So I've had a bit of a Sweden kick as of late due to that fun and personal discovery. Anyways, here's my best stab at a Sweden set. I wanted each kit to be simple and straightforwards, but still have a little something to give it some personality. The primary features a design centered on the flag cross, the navy second with utilization of the national colors as trim, and the white third features a front design meant to be an abstract representation of a viking ship sail. And yes, that's the throwback Adidas logo because I think it's better than the current. Here goes!
