Hey folks! I've had some NWSL concepts cooking for a while now, and after some free time spent improving them, I wanted to start sharing them! I plan to do kits for the current league, as well as bringing back some old teams and creating a couple new expansion teams. Starting things out with Carolina: The Courage have a pretty good look already, but I wanted to get rid of their monochrome uniforms, so I added a pale Carolina blue to the color scheme. The home jersey's design includes blueprints from Raleign inventor Beulah Louise Henry, sometimes called the Edison of her time. Click the square below for a closeup of the pattern: The away jersey is inspired by famous North Carolinian civil rights activist and singer Nina Simone. The colors are based on her outfit on her first album cover, while the stripes are waveforms generated from her songs "Old Jim Crow," "Feeling Good," "Four Women," "I Loves You Porgy," and "Mississippi Goddam," from top to bottom. I'm not very familiar with her work, so if any of you are fans of hers, please let me know if you think a different album cover would be better inspiration or if there are better songs to use. Finally, the third jersey is a 2002 fauxback to the Courage's WUSA days. C&C appreciated! Thanks for checking it out and I'll post more soon!
The NWSL will have a new team next year, as FC Kansas City has officially moved to Utah and been re-named Utah Royals FC. Gotta be a shame when the NWSL team has such a better name and badge than its MLS brother. I especially like the inclusion of the Delicate Arch, which really shouldn't work as well as it does.
