Arnhem Lions – identity and jersey design

The Arnhem Lions are a competitive paintball team that participates in international mid-divisional championships. The brief for the team was simplicity, clarity and should undeniably say “sports”. In a team sport still somewhat fraught with flames, skulls and various “badass” imagery, we decided to stay away from that to distinguish the team from the competition, while ensuring recognizability.
