The Ireland Mixed Beach team asked me to design their kit for the World Championships of Beach Ultimate, held in Dubai in 2015.
The team wanted to use the recognisable colours and symbols of Ireland, including harps and shamrocks, on a background of green and white. I aimed to make use of these elements, but in a subtle and tasteful way.
I chose to use a smarter, darker green than previous designs the team had used. The green jersey shown here includes a large harp design wrapping around the side of the shirt, with an orange shamrock included in the logo I created specifically for the team. The numbers on the back of the jersey have a thin orange outline, to reference the orange in the nation’s flag.
