Need a t-shirt design for sport fencing equipment sales company. The name of the company is Fencing Star (http://www.fencingstar.com) and the tagline is "For Fencers, By Fencers" (use of tagline on t-shirt is optional). Design should appeal to both male and female audiences typically ranging from youth (12 yrs) to adult (25-40 yrs old).
To appeal to fencers, here are a few characteristics:
Use strategy (not strength) to win in their sport
Individual vs. team sport
One idea is to show two unisex characters possibly lunging at each other (action oriented).
Do want authenticity if this level of detail is shown - e.g. characters should be fully suited including masks, lame, competition pants, etc.
- Item 1...modern and contemporary is good but not so abstract that you cannot see what it is at a glance,
- 2-3 colors max - no rainbows
- a star somewhere in the design would be good (name of the company is Fencing Star)
- assertive design should be eye catching, easy to read
- open to seeing designs that work on white as well as black t-shirts
- Item 1...nothing pastel or feminine
- nothing frivilous, but fun is okay
