Bumpy Pitch x Nike – Design InspirationNovember 29th, 2011
While the LA and Boston shirts were inspired by their team rivalry, the NY and LA shirts are inspired by the cities themselves. We wanted to maintain the integrity of an old crest for these two yet make them applicable to the cities first and foremost. We went as iconic as we could and used the seals from each city and then flipped them to make sure they represented the city as well as our slant on each one. Some part of Bumpy Pitch can be seen in each one, in lettering, laurel wreaths or the vintage soccer ball, all visible in our crest.
