Finaly the long waited (and lots of time spent for it) CR Vasco da Gama kits. This is my first design for the brand Penalty, so the research was a bit longer then usual. One nice surprise was when I find out that Igor Cavalera, the former drummer from Sepultura (one of my favorite band in the past) is working with Penalty and make designs for some Brazilian clubs. In this case he designed the third kit for Vasco. The home kit is all black with a white diagonal band on the shirt. The red colour is also present (the numbers and thin stripes and trims). The number on the front is present on the lower part of the shirt instead of the shorts. I changed the main sponsor's logo (left out the green-blue-yellow logo) to avoid too many colours on the shirt. I kept the blue for Eletrobras and also for the Ale logos from the shoulders.
The away kit is all white with black bands. The red colour is present on the cross and numbers. The thin stripes and trims are gray.
The third kit with this colour scheme is not very useful but as I saw in South American leagues (and Mexican also) the meaning of the third kit is different than in European leagues. Lots of teams have more kits in the same colour scheme. So I made the third kit white and black. On the left shoulder is a big red cross, the crest of the club. This feature is present on the back of the socks also. Otherwise the design is simple, only a thin line on the sides and lower part of the back of the shirt and shorts. The numbers, logos and name are black. No other colour besides black, red and white is present. I hope Igor Cavalera will be proud of me if he will see my designs :)
