Our club needs a new jersey - please help design it!

Postby RyanEdwards » Sun Sep 01, 2013 8:27 pm

LODDON MURRAY CYCLING

Loddon Murray Cycling was formed in December 2012 and has members from Kerang, Cohuna, Koondrook, Boort, Pyramid Hill, Barham and Quambatook, in northern Victoria. We need a cycling jersey to wear at the many events that our members participate in, and we need your help. We want you to design it for us - you choose the design and colours. Simply put your design onto the template below (or on our Facebook page or webpage) and either upload it to our Facebook page, email it to me or drop it into Kerang Sports & Toys by Saturday, 14th September to be in contention for one of three prizes. First prize is the new Loddon Murray Cycling jersey...that you designed!! Check out the following pages for more information:

I hope you can help!

You are one superior lateral thinker...brilliant idea to post this on a forum.
Can I ask what you do for a living?

I'm a school teacher (don't hold that against me). Our club is based in a rural/regional area with a small population so to maximise our audience it made sense to advertise to the biggest cycling audience in the country. Hopefully we get some great entries. Feel free to spread the word. :D

Not sure about how to do an electric colouring in competition. However I would be working with the existing colours and go for visibility without being too garish.

White torso (with the logo in black and red as per the website).
Red sleeves.
Black sides. (for the 'slimming' effect)
Black collar
Red pockets.

This would mean that the most visible parts of the jersey are either red or white.

Cheers,

Cameron

Hi Cameron. Thanks for the message. Although the colours of our logo on our website are red and black, our club colours haven't been confirmed yet and will depend on the winning jersey design. However I've taken your ideas and roughly put them onto the template using Paint.Net. Is this what you had in mind?

Thank you for that.

Yes that is what I had in mind. I did assume that the logo colours were more or less fixed.


Similarly the other combination that might work would pay a bit of homage to the National Champion Jersey.

Basically swap a darkish green for the black panels, and a bright yellow for the red.


Cheers,

Cameron

Sounds good Cameron. I'll put together your new suggestion to see what it looks like. Would you like me to submit your ideas into the competition?

How about one of these Ryan?
I used the colours of the Loddon Shire Council (Blue, Green and Orange)

Sure why not.

I reckon Dave might be on to something with the Shire logo colours though. :)

True Cameron. Our club actually covers two shires...Loddon Shire and Gannawarra Shire. Most of our riders live in Kerang (Gannawarra Shire) but not too far south the shire changes to the Loddon Shire which includes our riders from Boort, Macorna and Pyramid Hill.

The Loddon council colours look much nicer than the Gannawarra colours IMO.

I agree, especially on a cycling jersey. :)

Hi mate, I'd happily give this a crack and give it a retro flair to suit a lot of riders.

Thanks to everyone who submitted an entry for our jersey design competition. We had almost 30 entries and our committee has now selected 4 finalists which will be presented to our members who will get the opportunity to vote on their preferred jersey. I'll post the winning entry on here within the next two weeks.

Just out of curiosity, what does the new jersey look like?

Hi Dave. The design is still being computerized by the jersey manufacturer at the moment but it looks something like the one below.

I'm assuming the real version will look something like the one in this link:
