When we look back and reflect on the teams that we've worked with and the kits that we've designed and created, we can't help but think how far this brand has come from our beginnings in a humble lounge room in South East Melbourne. Our passion and our strength has been in our ability to tell a club's story through their kit so we've compiled the teams Top 5 Kits of 2019.
5 | Alpaca Fight Club
"I had a bit of fun designing this one and this really started our novelty kit trend. I love a top that doesn't take itself too seriously so I went with an alpaca head imprint background and an angry looking rainbow alpaca as a logo. A kit so popular that we've shipped this kit out to dodgeball enthusiasts over Europe!"
Kui, Head Designer
4 | St Kilda Handball Club
“It’s always a challenge when a client gives your free reign so when St Kilda Handball asked us to make a kit iconic to Melbourne we didn’t know where to start. Kui really delivered on this one as we delivered with a hand drawn background of Luna Park, Flinders Street and the big wheel. This once was special as it really highlight our kits transcending teamwear into the realm of art.”
Mel, Customer Service
3 | St Albans Samurais
"St Albans were our first dodgeball team and it was made all the more special that their mascot were the Samurais. I love Japanese culture and the sleeves were inspired by the Seigaiha wave topped with faded Chevron across the base that completed the kit."
Khai, Business Development
2 | Regent Away
“I love managing the relationship between Regent & AKU and when the boys said they wanted something totally different for their away kit I knew Kui would have a bit of fun designing this one. Inspired by the box office success of Black Panther, I love the dashiki themed kit that broke the moulds of what a traditional kit should look like”
Nina, Finance & Operations
1 | Melbourne AKU FC Away
“You can call me bias but I’m a huge fan of our lime green away kit. The kit itself is subtle with the standout being the lime green material and colour itself. The art work Burn City represents who we are as a brand, repping Melbourne with a heavy urban influence and the pattern on the sleeves breaks up the kit. Tell me you can find a kit with this colour from any of our competitors? It was a great effort between our design and manufacturing team to pull this one off.”
