Design a modern, minimalistic racing speedsuit for my Ironman triathlon team!
Check out bart.stevens's Other clothing or merchandise contest…
I am a personal trainer for endurance athletes. My coaching emphasis is multisport (triathlon) with a primary focus on the long-course (i.e. "IRONMAN.")
What's your vision?
I am attempting to refine a design for a triathlon race "kit" for my team of Ironman triathletes. I am focusing on a long-sleeve speedsuit, which is a "onesie" that includes sleeves and 9 in shorts. I have an initial concept I wish to explore, but am open to some creativity around my design, or something new. The primary colors must be red and black, and I am trying to leave at least 30-40% of the kit in light gray and/or white. Instead of being pure white or pure gray, I am trying to incorporate a geometric diamond white/gray abstract pattern. I am also trying to incorporate the following: 1.) Some asymmetry 2.) Red chevrons or something similar that connotes motion. 3.) Two thick black paint brush stroke patterns, with a textured feel on the edges and a slight drop shadow. The lower stripe must cover the genitals area in front and back). I am trying to integrate a red stroke and possibly grey as in the sample shorts below. 4.) My Delphi logo, ideally in the middle of the chest but I am up for other creative placement. Also on the back of the neck. 5.) The logo of my apparel sponsor, Wattie Ink, who normally prefers four logos - 2 on each side (on the shoulder and bottom) 6.) Design elements that mimic Hayabusa are a plus, namely the stripes of the sample shirt and brush strokes of the sample shorts. 7.) I like Gradients whenever possible, especially for the white/gray areas. I am still debating whether to include "Human Performance Systems" in the front and/or back and how- inside the black paint stroke? Within gray bars? Red bars? On top of the white/gray area instead?
The Kits below are my ideal and initial concept proof, and some of the elements included are important. But I am absolutely open if a designer wants to try to expand on this theme and/or depart. But the color scheme is fixed and I am looking for something masculine, modern AND minimalistic. The Hayabusa design concepts I have included are close to the "look" I am trying to achieve. These files will be provided to my apparel designer, Wattie Ink, to create a prototype.
