Ok, it is time for a new jersey design. I need your help in designing the new one. Take a crack at it and we'll put it up for a vote (and editor's discretion) to decide which jersey we will produce.

We'll do a full kit with all the bells and whistles, manufactured and sold by Voler as usual.

Let's have all designs in by Oct. 20 (friday next week). Let's have fun with this and come up with a good one.

The winning designer will get untold fame and fortune, name on the jersey and free jersey and shorts.

Submit your designs by replying to this thread.

Wow, after reading that thread I was all excited to pick up a tribal jersey, preferably short sleeve. Unfortunately both short and long-sleeve XL are sold out. :cryin:

Any chance you could do a limited re-run of that design, as Voler should already have the screening set up and it seemed popular? If not, I'll look forward to seeing what the new choice turns out to be.

Now you want to buy...

I don't think Voer is going to make anymore Tribals other than stock at hand. I've been trying to order myself. They're really trying to clear out old stock and make room for this new stuff we're making.

Send them an email though. Maybe demand can dictate a special production.

Is it true that everyone with more than 4751 posts gets a free kit?
Why yes! 4751 posts exactly though.

Here's an idea though. Every person that submits a design will get a free pair of roadbikereview socks. They're super-euro and optimized and guaranteed to make your legs look sassy.

Anyone got a photo of the socks?

Does the resubmitted design above qualify me for socks, LOL? I'd try and do something else, but my paint skills are virtually non-existant.
Nope. That design is too close to what we already produced anyway. We got to have something different.

Hack something up young man. Those socks pick up chix, guaranteed.

Socks update!!

Thank you for all the designs so far. I have to modify my socks offer.

Free roadbikereview socks to the first 12 people only who submit designs!!

I just don't want it to get out of hand and I'll be a mailing (and poor) slave for weeks on end.


Here's the winning design btw for mtbr. We need a design of this caliber:

Do KJohnson's and KenB's "designs" count in the 12-design limit? If they win, I'm SO buying--inveterate Lounger that I am--but I'm thinking that opens the door for MB1's design for Commuting and Touring (white sunblock fabric with long sleeves) or a Kerry Irons jersey (featuring salted fig bars over a pool of homebrew lube) and I don't think you want to go there.
Yes, they count of course. They're in the first 12 so sock em up.

However the designs don't have to stop at 12. Hopefully, we'll get a lot more. I just don't want to ship more than 12 free socks.

Thank you francois for the logo. I also wanted to see if we can post multiple designs. I have a number of ideas I'm currently working on, and wanted to see if I should wait and choose the best and post it at the end, or if I should post each of my designs.

Thanks,
Jason
Multiple designs of course.

Most of the designers two years ago had multiple designs and/or variations in color.

I don't know how much color fades they can handle. we may have to reduce designs to solids. Francois give em a call.

innergel, previous kits were designed around the logo color (I think) since you typically don't change the colors of a branded logo it does reduce the palette options.

can you imagine doing a kit for Fed Ex and saying "I got a great idea but we need to alter the color of your logo"

part of the challenge to designing stuff for 'branded' items is working within the confines of the branding.

Color fades can be done. The old tribal version pretty much pushes the limits of their color fading ability.

As far as logo color changes, I'm open to that. It has to be really compelling though for us to go that route.

Let's take it easy on The Lounge only designs. They're hilarious. But right now, we're only doing one design. I don't want it looking like an inside joke to the rest of the world.

We can certainly have a mention of the lounge in the winning design.

If Francois gives the OK, it's a colossal PITA, but I'll do it.

I'm totally ok with using the logo and site name for a 'Lounge' jersey. In fact, I was going to suggest that and I would buy a couple myself.

Y'all just need someone to run the show, just like a club jersey. I'll give you my Voler contacts too and see what we can work out.

My regular deal with Voler is pretty unique. They pay for all the inventory and do all the sales. I just drive customers and get a commission. In the end, I'm interested in getting the roadbikereview brand out.

top one is a variation on my previous submission....

bottom one is before I fixed the colour profiles... but I kind of like the lighter blue text...
Hey Phillippec,

Your design is brilliant. Can you change the logo shape though to original square? I'm ok if folks had to play with color but I'll get crucified here at work if the structure of it is changed. At any rate, let's see if it works with the normal logo shape.

Hi francois,

Is there any way we could expend the date to Monday. That would give us a chance to work on it over the weekend, which for some of us is the only time that we have to complete designs. If not, I would like to wish everyone the best of luck.

Thanks,

jason

Sure. New deadline is Monday at 8am. That way, we can get some voting done on Monday.
