Hi! My name is Gus. This is the first time I'm posting here so feel free to give critique. The Swedish top soccer division called Allsvenskan (All-Sweden) is a mid-level European League with teams from the late 1800's. Teams: AIK BK Häcken Djurgårdens IF GIF Sundsvall Hammarby IF IF Brommapojkarna IF Elfsborg IFK Göteborg IFK Norrköping IK Sirius Kalmar FF Malmö FF Trelleborgs FF Örebro SK Östersunds FK First up is the team from the island of Hissingen located in the Gothenburg arpelago. BK Häcken is a team founded in 1940 by two 14-15 year old boys that wanted to play games against other teams instead of just practicing. The name Häcken means Hedge in English. The original pitch was surrounded by two chestnut trees and a hedge, therefore the name BK Hedge. BK is short for Bollklubb which means ball club. The team has always worn yellow and black stripes earning the nickname Getingarna (Wasps). The primary kit has minor changes from the original while the clash kit has gone through a major change. The original is plain white with no striping, trims or design features. I changed it up giving them wings like a wasp (not really but the thought is there) to make it more interesting. C&C Appreciated
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!
