Cycling in Sydney Australia
Since launching this site I've wanted to do jerseys, but it always seemed like a big job to me, getting a design, funding it, ordering enough etc. But it can actually be a lot easier than that, you guys just need to help!
Here's how it's going to work.....
First up, we're going to have a big of a design competition. I've attached a blank jersey template, any designers out there (or non designers if you've got some good ideas) can take this template and design what YOU think a Sydney Cyclist jersey should be. It doesn't need to be perfect, we can polish it in the last stage, it's more about showing everyone what you think it should look like.
We'll probably leave this open for the next week or so.
Next up, I'll collect the designs and we're going to vote on them. So you guys get to pick the jersey. Once we have a winner I'm going to get people who want one (or more) to put their name down. When I have the numbers we'll do the order.
Sound good ?
So, grab the template and start designing!
Could that be lycra on steroids?
That is sick!
BTW, I mean sick in the traditional sense!
This one's got my vote! So long as there isn't any graphical representation of my layers of fat!
Why not keep it simple and add a message?
yogi is right,
please remove safe cycling..
"ONE LESS 4WD"
Yep, IMHO the design *must* feature the URL - it's not just about 'being a Sydney cyclist' (i.e. 'I ride a bike in Sydney') but about sydneycyclist as well...
"Join in at www.sydneycyclist.com"
Another thought I had, since "membership" (participation) around here is free in part due to the revenue Damian can haul in through advertising which no doubt helps defray some of his costs but I imagine in no way offsets his time in providing us with this sandpit, how do people feel about acknowledging our benefactors, even just a small spot on the pockets or something? I'd be up for it.
This also opens up the possibility for some of the members who use the site to flog their wares (which once again I have absolutely no problem with) to chip in something small, in return for some logo space, and subsidise the cost on the "first edition" production run?
I'm not saying turn the whole thing in to a billboard, but rather just add some subtle logos in the relevant places without detracting from the main theme.
The TRAFFIC thing has to happen, please please please?!?!?
OK I added a basic URL for syd cyclist. We maybe should decide what we have on the jersey. Then we can design around it. I've done this heaps. Used to be a designer for Sony music etc. I like the hot colours. Reflect the colours in the site logo. Unless we decide to bring the look of the site up to date a bit.
can i say i love it, but it reminds me a little of the fat cyclists jerseys...
but this one is much nicer on the eye....
