Midlands based sports creative agency, Olner Pro Sport Media has teamed up with Indian Premier League cricket team Kolkata Knight Riders to design their new team kit for the forthcoming 2017 campaign. The Kolkata Knight Riders match shirt features a vertical purple to gold gradient with a sublimated zigzag pattern, and purple match trousers featuring a reverse gradient panel sewn into the outer legs. The bold and highly recognisable colour palette of the top IPL team was a key ingredient requested by team manager Mr Abhishek Singh, who was delighted with the results:
“As one of the biggest names in world cricket, Kolkata Knight Riders enjoy unparallelled support from all continents. That calls for a distinctive and unique kit design which upholds our reputation, is strong enough to carry the brand values of our team, and reflects our traditions and our expectations. We are delighted with the results and Olner Pro Sport Media team have been highly responsive and a pleasure to work with throughout the design and production process.”
The teamkit collection also includes practise singlet and shorts as well as a number of supporter polo shirt designs and peak caps.
Olner Pro Sport Media owner, Duncan Olner was equally pleased with the designs; “We were very excited after the initial contact from Mr Singh and his colleagues at Kolkata Knight Riders and to be invited to work on such a prestigious project as this gave us a trendous sense of pride. The whole project went very smoothly and I believe we did justice to the kits.”
The Kolkata Knight Riders kits made their debut appearance in the Knight Riders’ opening match of the 2017 Indian Premier League season against Gujarat Lions on 7 April.
