The Northern Lights & Constellation Kits
Today at the Mall of America, Minnesota Aurora FC revealed the very first uniforms in team history. Designed by Cassidy Sepnieski, a talented graphic designer that has previously designed uniforms for Forward Madison and other teams, the uniforms are inspired by the team name Aurora and the Northern Lights.
The Inaugural home kit captures the captivating movement and color of the aurora borealis spreading out across a starry Minnesota night sky. Through a gradient background, swirling motion-filled texture, and an underlying smattering of stars along with details on the back of the neck and sleeves that are uniquely Aurora, this kit brings all the depth and majesty of Midnight.
The away kit (the Constellation Kit) is a clean take on constellations that interweave stars across the night sky. A bright teal base, partnered with strong dark sleeves creates a backdrop for a pinstripe pattern of stars. The lines intersect the stars to create abstract constellations and are a reminder of the community that surrounds this team and how everyone is connected to build the Aurora on and off the pitch.
“Getting to bring these inaugural kits to life has truly been an honor and a privilege. I was immensely inspired by the community owners and the passion surrounding the club - on top of the beauty of Minnesota. I wanted to design something that reflected the interconnectedness of the club while upholding the incredible visual identity that other female designers have created,” said Sepnieski.
