We’ve featured the work of kit designer Emre Gulteken several times on FSC, but this selection is a little different.

Emre’s archive of hand-drawn designs spans his pre-professional creative period and both demonstrate his obvious talent, going as far back as his teenage years, and his knack for preempting what would be seen on football pitches in years to come.

In Template FC’s latest Photoshop and Photopea tutorial episode, Noah explains how to use textures to add depth to designs.

We’re pushing god-level realism now, with concepts going beyond even what many actual manufacturers would have on their digital drawing board. Noah is providing a comprehensive look at what is possible, allowing budding (concept) designers to cherry pick what will work for fantasy creations.

Despite the recent huge focus on European and South American international football, some of the greatest designs - real life and concept, such as this Cameroon offering from DesignFootball.com member ONI - concern Mother Africa.

The striking deep green design has a sublimated print pattern of stylised, horizontal striping, with neat matching neck and cuffs, the famous double crest effect and the Le Coq Sportif logo rendered monotonically.

Our sister site, DesignFootball.com, regularly provides alternate - as in “universe” - branding for professional football clubs and national teams. This Oldham Athletic example is one such example.

The Latics have a new crest for 2021-22, but “MikeM”’s ultra-modern and minimalist stylings would have arguably provided another suitable replacement for the much-maligned design which was dispensed with last summer.

Collaboration concept between Brazil, Nike, and the World Wide Fund for Nature to raise awareness of deforistation in the Amazon.

Tombot's creation uses a jaguar fur print on the sleeve cuffs and collar, a national symbol of Brazil and an animal that lives in the Amazon.

In Episode 3 of Noah from Template FC’s Photoshop and Photopea tutorial, he takes the introductory ideas for patterning from the last episode and runs with them.

Showing us how we can modify and adapt what we’ve created to produce something entirely original, we learn we can go well beyond recolouring existing templates and elements.

Continuing the series of instructional videos applicable to Photoshop and/or Photopea, Noah from Template FC helpfully shows us, in Episode 2, how to add pattern designs to football kits.

Again showing the methodology of the process, and explaining how to obtain the resources required - including iconic patterning that will be familiar to most football kit fans - the video explores the possibilities in detail.
