    I like the idea of ACT colours - predominantly blue with yellow sleeve.

    I think we should stick with Green. Green is the colour of Canberra and Blue and Yellow are of the ACT.

    I like the black and green striped jersey. It's different from other clubs in the league and it's a cool design.

    Ok, so I found a Puma Kit template on the net and I've had a quick stab at some jerseys. Can't be bothered doing the back, shorts and socks for now...still getting my head around Adobe Illustrator!

    The colours aren't quite right...the greens are meant to be a tad duller. Like I said, I'm still getting around Illustrator!

    Anyways here's two Home variants:
    CLICK TO EMBIGGIN






    ...and an Away(which I much prefer to the other two I did):




    Feedback most welcome!

    Looking good - although I think the home ones need something extra - don't know what... maybe some white?

    The away one looks tits - would be happy with that

    They look nice as well. How about the second one with white base and light green stripe down the middle?

    I must say I still prefer the Green Sheffield Wednesday strip with the gold. For the away games I would consider mainly white jersey with some green on them. For the two currently proposed above the one with the white strip looks great, how about if the white strip half way down splits outwards so you get three stripes reaching the bottom of the jersey?

    Like thus?



    I was thinking about giving the jersey's a white collar(since canberra is known for it's white collar workers), then I looked at my Dutch national team jersey and got an idea on how to incorporate the ACT's colours(navy blue and gold) into the collar:(best click it to make it bigger)

    I don't know if I like it or not...gonna try it with some other coloured jersey's as well.

    I think you might have to show me what you mean with that last part cause I don't quite get what you mean! :|

    hey yeah I am liking these more and more! I think the white and green one as the away colour looks like a nice contrast to the 'home' jersey. Ok I am not really picture oriented so im not sure how to design it, I don't even know how to change my main picture profile. I'll try to explain it in other words... In the above pictures the Jersey has the main strip straight down the middle. What I am proposing is to make the jersey a little more complicated by having two strips (looking like the original strip) going diagonally outwards and downwards (so a 4 o'clock strip and an 8 o'clock strip) starting just under the arm pits. Sorry this is so confusing but I hope you understand it.

    I like the 'Newcastle United' style stripes with the green, looks good. I think it should be something pretty simple, as they often look the best
