Newcastle Jets Away Kit

For my Newcastle Jets away concept I’ve used the same general 50/50 split design as my home concept, and applied the Jets current green/brown away colour scheme to it. I’m a big fan of their away colours, especially the sash version they used when they first introduced the colours a couple of year ago.

Like the Jets home kit, their away kit also suffered from an awful attempted use of gradients. If you take the gradient edges off of those stripes (and shrink the sponsors logo a bit) last years away kit would have looked terrific.

Newcastle Jets Home Kit

A couple of significant deviations away from the usual Newcastle Jets kit, I’ve swapped the red and blue stripes for a 50/50 split design heavily inspired by the kits worn by Galatasaray in recent years. The second big changed is that I’ve dropped all the metallic gold accents and used yellow instead – which may not be a popular change.

I prefer how the yellow looks when compared to the gold, largely because in the wrong light, or if poorly applied to the design the gold can turn out as a weird tan/khaki/brown colour which isn’t so nice. I’m also a fan of how the blue/red/yellow combo looks on Barcelona’s kit, I even contemplated using the darker shades of red and blue on this design.

I’ve also recoloured the Jets logo slightly to incorporate the yellow – I’ll post a better look at the recolour later on.

At this point, anything would be an upgrade over the atrocious gradient stripes they wore last season – which also happens to include a good example of where the gold doesn’t look gold.
