The Official Jersey of Maldives National Football Team
- CLIENT: Bank of Maldives & FAM
- YEAR: 2019
Maldives National Football Team, a team that is so dear to each and everyone of us. Every dribble towards the goal keeps us on the edge. I remember watching them play in international tournaments and hearing the commentator refer to the team as the 'Red Snappers' of the Indian Ocean. That distinctive memory of the team defined my design direction for the home kit.

For the away kit, I researched the reasons of using blue as our jersey which helped me get a sense of what should be visualised. As it represented the vast ocean we are surrounded by, I tried my best to portray just that with a pattern resembling the waves that break onto our shores.
Let’s not forget goalkeepers! They are the ones who have saved our team so many times, punching the ball out back into play. The patterns from the home and away kit were kept intact, whilst different colours were used to give a distinct look. I chose black for the home goalkeeper jersey & parrot green for the away jersey. This really helped make the keeper kit stand out from the rest.
