CK: If you could design a kit with any brand, who would that be? And why?
Emre: It would be Nike. Galatasaray has a long-term relationship with Nike that I suspect is set to continue. Therefore, I have sent so many designs too, (I hope) the right people at Nike’s Global Football over the past 10 years. It’s resulted in me having had a few interviews with those guys…I am still trying!
CK: Do you have a specific era that you like most when it comes to kits?
Emre: Yes, definitely from 1984 to 2000. It was a great era for all sports brands as well as music and lifestyle. The likes of adidas, Nike, Umbro and Diadora, delivered so many timeless and unique kits in my opinion.
CK: How long does each of your kit history projects roughly take to produce?
Emre: It depends on my workload. It generally takes from 2 weeks to 1-2 months.
CK: Is the imagery referencing for producing the kit illustration timelines easy to get hold of? As there have been so many kits produced over the last 30 years, it must be hard to determine which went with what year?
Emre: It is easy to find references from 1990's. However, it is so difficult to find out pre 1990's. Even more so for pre the 1960's. I generally research club’s archive or museum, not to mention old sports magazines and newspapers
CK: So, what team or national side can we find you working on right now?
Emre: I am currently working on Argentina and Boca Juniors kit histories.
CK: I people want to check out more of your work, where can people find it?
Emre: They can view my work on my Behance page and Instagram profile here.
