Love the colour scheme. Unusual yet effective
It started out as a challenge to make the Optus Sport colours work (after someone commented that the colours could never work together in an attractive way). Once the design began to actually look ok, the blue was changed slightly.

Glad this isn't my final design this year.

This is a pretty cool design.

Just some advice for work on that template:
- Turn down the opacity of the stitching. You want to be able to see it but it should only be fairly light so it doesn't stand out quite so much.
- Adjust the opacity of the overlay so that it's not too light and not too dark, depending on how dark your base colour is.
- Don't use the AFL number font, use something different that works with your design. The AFL number font is super generic.

The shading on that Scorcho template is probably a bit obsolete now anyway. Certainly the shape of the template (shaped on a body, rather than laid flat) lends itself to shading but I don't think it loses that much for the shading to be dropped altogether.

Away/Alternate Variant



Rejected early on (as can be seen by the use of the old NAFL logo) due to fan feedback linking it to Port Adelaide's 2009 Clash jumper.

Away Variant



Rejected in favour of the Orca kit to allow club to have some differentiation between kits instead of having an inverse of the home.

Just a few concepts I had for the Ringwood Rockets coming in to to comp. Interesting to see which elements persisted throughout the heavy editing of it I did.

Here was my original home jumper for this season. Probably a better looking jumper, but too similar to the past 2 years.

I was looking and thinknig about your guernseys earlier and maybe if you persisted with the W but made the top of the middle point into the shape of an eagle head then jazzed it up a bit like Derwent River has done. I dunno how it would turn out or if it would make much difference but its food for thought anyway.

To be fair, I think Fizz designed it before Werribee swapped back.
I think not. From memory, I used the W-Eagle on my clash from 2015/16. Then the next year I put the W on the home jumper.

Whereas Werribee used the W in 2013 to celebrate 20 years since our only premiership, then made it the full time home jumper in 2014.
