»ETV Handball« is Eimsbüttel’s very own handball club. In 2022 they updated their jerseys and approached me with a unique challenge: They wanted to highlight the identity of their borough, which most people only think of as a part of Hamburg.
Illustrated Jersey for »ETV Handball«
The players came up with a list of local landmarks — ranging from renowned attractions to lesser-known hidden gems — that I illustrated to create a seamless pattern, which was used as an all-over print for the new jerseys.
The result is a representation of the Eimsbüttel community’s local identity, woven into their sports uniforms.
The ETV’s teams are also always on the lookout for new players. If you happen to live in Eimsbüttel — make sure to check it out!
