3D Sports Kit Designer

Utilising current high-end 3D web graphic technologies in order to create an online, interactive kit designer in the browser.

Project Description

In the sports industry, a great deal of time is spent on building an aesthetic around a team and its followers. The process of having this done is a tedious endeavor. It involves back and forth communication between clients, designers, suppliers, players, and even sponsors looking to have their brand portrayed as best as possible.  There is an underlying need to cut out the 'middle man' and rid the client of the arduous process of communication/feedback between parties over design.  This 3D application consists of a step-by-step customisation of full team kit using WebGL and Three.js. Allowing for complete pattern, color, typeface and logo placement; everything you would expect from the traditional process.  The client is permitted full control in personalising a kit using the supplier's resources in a clean, online, 3D, fully customizable and comfortable to use environment. At its most basic: no e-mails or phone calls to the supplier.

Project Findings

Proficiencies and learning in modern 3D web graphic JavaScript library technologies, web frameworks, interaction design and individual project management skills.  The project reached a completed, albeit not fully attained requirements wise, state providing a user with an interactive customisation of sports kit pattern design and colour selection.
