Sevilla Kit Design Contest winner

And the winner is... Well I am not going to give that away just yet, we'll get to that later on, just want to say thanks to everyone who entered the competition. We have had some very interesting and elaborate designs sent in and some quite simplistic too. So again to everyone who uploaded their designs, thank you ever so much and fingers crossed...

Now that little mushy bit is out of the way, onto some of the close runners up, who myself and the 'panel' of judges believe deserve a mention. There was a great deal of delight in visiting DesignFootball every day to see what wonderful works had been created.

Firstly there is this magnificent work by Matupeco. It has a very creative reversible theme, using both modern and traditional Sevilla insignia on either side. In keeping with the theme of modern and bygone on either side of the shirt the font differs from antiquated on one side and a more fresh-looking paint effect on the other. The symbolic dates and script located in different parts of the shirt make it very identifiable to any Sevilla fan and it would most likely be a fans' favourite. The shirt is finished off with a classy ripped look at the bottom, making something of a looking glass effect into the reversed side.

Next up is this work by Feyeno0rd.  It features a V-neck which gives the illusion that it is bigger than it actually is with the extra red breast feature. The Andalucía sponsor is a nice touch, promoting the region as well as showing off its regional identity. On the back there are also symbols of the team with the original crest being shown at the bottom of the back of the shirt and a small Spanish flag accompanying it.

This was a bit of a favourite of mine, it has fantastic presentation giving details on each part of the kit, so I don't have to ;) The design is quite dynamic looking and is something I would tend to deviate to when designing a shirt myself.

One factor that was debated about this shirt was the choice of Joma logo used.  I personally feel it suits this type of shirt really well, giving an energetic feel as opposed to the other more time-honoured feeling logos.

So now we get down to the nitty gritty and find out who has won the Sevilla kit competition.

The winning kit displayed so many different concepts and details that the designer could have chosen to churn out 3 or 4 different kits but they all come together so superbly that when I first saw it I was taken aback. The basic design itself isn't necessarily ground-beaking or special but each little individual part of the kit looks like it has been hand crafted for hours with a lot of research being put in.

I was particularly struck by the monogram at the back of the shirt of Seville’s stadium.

The Stadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan has been transformed and stylized into a fantastic symbol for the team and fans to be proud of.  In fact, I could go on and on about this for hours on end, describing each little feature but I shan't bore you much longer.

All that is left for me to do is wish MATUPECO congratulations and thanks for all the hard work he put into this and his other designs he entered too.

Matupeco...
The first set, the red and white striped one, i like but a reversible shirt is a bad idea.
The last one, white, I also like. The little stuff - Spanish flag included on the collar nice touch. The stadium on the back and the little saying down the front well done.

You should design professionally if you don\'t already. ;-)

the shirt is good so im not complaining but wasnt it a KIT competition why listing props for the short and socks when these are not taken into consideration for the first two places? in my opinion a shirt alone is far away from being a kit itself.. just asking...

There wasn\'t \'places\' just I thought the above kits deserved recognition also.

It\'s true it was a kit competition, but I didn\'t specify that the entry had to have shorts and socks, but I did take into account the details of a shirt on it\'s own just for the uniqueness and style shown. A shirt without the shorts and socks was less likely of winning as one with just because more effort had to have been put in to make those.
