The designer is Christoffer Svae, who tells the AP that he asked a company called Loudmouth to jazz up the team’s kit:

“It’s definitely been life-changing for us,” Svae  told the AP . “Not so much in the everyday but when we travel around the world for curling, it doesn’t always matter if we do well or not, people still think that we win stuff because we are always in the media.”

“I don’t think you’ll see a lot of the other teams do the same that we did,” Svae added, “they feel it’s our thing.”

If you look closely at the new kit, you can see a boy in tricycle riding up the zigzags.
