    TE Jersey Design Contest

    To disable ads, please log-in.

    Ladies, its time to put your thinking caps on and get creative!

    It has been a couple of years since we produced a TE-branded cycling jersey and we'd like to come up with something very creative with a high "WOW" factor, but we haven't come up with anything ourselves that we absolutely love.

    So... we're going to have a design contest!

    We recognize that not everyone has the skills to create vector artwork suitable for use as final art, so what we're looking for is something more along the lines of a concept sketch that we can then take to the designers at our jersey manufacturer to be cleaned up and turned into final art.

    1st Prize will be your very own 2009 TE Jersey + $50 TE Gift Certificate
    - winner to be selected by TE
    - (note: final jersey design may not make use of the winning design. If no jersey is produced before July 2009, winner will receive a $125 TE Gift Certificate)


    2nd Prize "People's Choice" award will be a $50 TE Gift Certificate
    - winner to be selected by a poll here on the TE forums.
    - this may be the same as the 1st prize winner.


    We'll let it run at least 2 weeks but possibly through the end of February depending on how much activity there is surrounding the contest.

    I'll put a link up tomorrow to a page where TE logos and color swatches can be downloaded.

    We're looking forward to seeing what the amazing gals of the TE forums come up with!

    Salsa , you don't have to have the mad skillz like Mimi. If you can do a mediocre rough sketch with shapes and graphic placement I think that will do.

    This is more in the graphics/visualization area.

    Yeah, I know. But she also has some really great bike paintings that I have always thought would MAKE good jersey designs. So...we'll see.

    Looks like there will be a separate thread established for folks to post ideas and sketches. Watch for it!

    Just a note for when you actually choose the lucky winner and produce the jersey.

    I bought the previous TE jersey, but it never fit correctly, as it didn't come in my actual size and it had elastic on the bottom.

    It would be great if it was available in a large range of sizes (XS-3X), with no elastic.

    Thanks!

    We haven't decided yet, but it will probably be a 3/4 hidden zip.

    I vote for full zip with no elastic at the bottom.

    No elastic >> full zip
