PHOOTYKITS is a crossover project at the intersection of several different passions: graphic design, football (soccer), and Phish.
It re-imagines each Phish song as a Football Club and what each club’s crest and uniform (kit) would look like. The players on each team are famous versions of each song, as Phisheads commonly refer to them: the names are dictated by the venue or the city, the number by the show date. Real life soccer clubs’ team crests and kits have obviously served as inspiration for many designs but song/club associations are purely fortuitous and design-driven. To complete the exercise, the corporate sponsors are also all fictional, and to the best of my intent, tie back in some way or other to the song/team.
As this project gains traction with Phish and soccer fans, PhootyKits will be offering printing runs of fully customized kits (size/name/number) as soon as minimum order size is reached. These shirts are clever and they are going to take off. Visit Phootykits website now and get your club on the crest of this wave.
Seth Reynolds-Mohler grew up in New York state and first got the Maxell blow-back effect at SPAC ’95. Ever since then his fascination with Phish and love for the community has grown brighter and brighter. Transplanted in the West Coast, Seth began a simple movement to unite Pacific Northwest phans over the interwebs. The Phish community of the PNW has bonded and is a flourishing scene where regular “Phish Phry” meet-ups, public webcast parties, pre-show parties, and more occur on the regs. This effort and connection to the community inspires his t-shirt designs. For now, the TIMBER HO mash-up of the Portland Timbers MLS team is the offer-du-jour. However, find NYE-inspired designs to hit the scene on PhanArt and Phish PDXby December 1.
This limited edition TIMBER HO mash-up of the Portland Timbers MLS team features the Languedoc axe-head and signature f-hole treatment to the catchy Portland Timbers logo. This is a sharp design that any MLS phan can appreciate (bonus if you’re in Timbers Army). These unisex tshirts are Gildan Ultra 100% Cotton and pre-shrunk. There are only a few sizes left with no reprints until next MLS season and Summer Tour ’12.
