I was contacted recently by twins Samuel and Thomas Phillips who are both studying Level 2 Sportswear Design at University College Falmouth. They were telling me all about the course and the work they are doing designing kits. One of the projects is designing a strip for their local side Perranwell AFC and they have set up a blog documenting their work. There’s some really great ideas there (especially their handling of the “stripes” problem!) and its a fascinating step by step look at how a football kit design comes together and what life as a sportswear design student is like.
I’m sure you’ll find their story interesting! Find out more at:

Read this a few weeks ago after they posted it on another forum. Really interesting blog, but I’m afraid to say I do not like the final shirts at all. The top panel in a slightly different third colour is not a good idea at all.
to be fair, i think the printers just messed up with the colours. the top panel was supposed to be the same colour as the stripes.
