Product Design / Strategy / Creative Direction


The LA KISS wanted to make a lot of noise when they entered the Arena Football League. They called upon Hydro Graphics Inc. to create a helmet that stood out above the rest. HGI brought Teske Design on board to lead the design and strategy for the helmet design.


Starting with the LA KISS style guide, Teske Design created a variety of helmets concepts that complimented the team uniform and also embodied imagery that echoed the history of KISS. Working with HGI, as well as Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons, Teske Design created a striking, chrome helmet that features the branded LA KISS flames on not only the helmet, but the facemask and visor as well. The LA KISS logo is center aligned on the back, providing a unique and bold location for the new branding.
