Background

Ever since a young age, I’ve been drawn to the blue/orange color palette of New York sports team jerseys, such the New York Knicks and the New York Mets. Pulling visual inspiration from those sport franchises, in addition to other sources of influence, like New York firefighter uniforms and the Netherlands soccer team jerseys, I set out to design a product that celebrates this iconic visual sports language. ​​​​​​​

Outcome

The NYFD Rolltop Backpack features a waterproof, dry waxed canvas body, dyed black leather box stitched patches, nylon industrial thread, felt padded leather straps, and reflective tape accents that allow the wearer to be visible at night.
