Nice work Prend, though no disrespect to DJ.

Particularly like Prend's blue and green (option 1) and the details (bug in pocket etc).

Wasn't going to sign up for these originally but Prend's option 1 may just have me opening my wallet.

Appreciate the pro bono work too. Props.

Cheers

GJ

@prendrefeu - I'm loving that blue and green design. I was a bit reluctant to get in on the order because of the original design, but this one looks great. :thumbup:

I could be wrong, but it seems like the inseam on most of the Capo bibshorts aren't as long as LG (don't know about the others). I don't need my shorts to fit like Voeckler's, but the shorts that go almost all the way down to the knee are too much.

I like the new one a bit more, but I think there are a couple things to polish here and there but i like it a little bit more than the previous one.

The design isn't permanent, and I can see areas where I can clean it up a little bit. So long as we don't enter "design by committee" (which is a designer's worst nightmare), I'll make a few modifications.

And, again, I only used Capo templates because that's what I had on hand. So far the voting is tight between LG and Champion-Systems. I'm interested to see what sort of pricing/deal Ted can pull off with Verge sport. They've got a nice bib (The Euro bib they call it) and minimums aren't too bad. I haven't worn Verge though, so I don't know how they are in quality.

I like prendre's work but I would like to see the <6.8kg added in the back, I think it's the identity of the forum and kit.

Ok, so in the last hour I decided not to take my laptop with me while on this trip, therefore I made the quick updates to the design.

What happened:

-I swapped the logo to Louis Garneau since that's the current winner of the voting, and people were getting upset about Capo (Some people are really passionate about it, apparently!)
-Original colors work, and here's a version with colors a little bit brighter... so you can get an idea of the "Italian neon" thing. Of course the prior orange/grey option is also available. The Blue/Green had a lot of positive feedback so maybe let's go with that?
-Cleaned up the Mascot logo on the sleeve, but kept him 'digital' because it's more authentic (and is a double reference to being 'light weight')
-Added <6.8kg on the back pocket.

Otherwise, interested to hear what Szczuldo's thoughts are on this.

I like it, and I also prefer LG to Capo. Just a couple things I would work on:

- I would make the end of the left leg white, not green, so it follows the same e in the sleeves; one black and one white.
- I would refine that pattern of lines... Looks a bit strange to me. I would go for a patter more sophisticated or a more simple one, more like sky kit or something like that.
- the lighten up font I would change it, maybe, although this one is not bad. I would remove the final dot and change it for an exclamation mark, but better just the "Lighten Up" sentence, with a capital U.
- The side panels of the jersey will never ever ever match the lines of the middle panel. This is one of the basic rules of kit design: panels will never match after sewed as they can match in the computer. I would re design this part.
- Sides of bib shorts and sides of jersey should be the same colour, at least where they meet. Now is white and then black; this makes it look like the bib short and jersey are not from the same kit. A continuity will make it look much much better.
- The colours chosen, light green and cyan, don't look bad at all, but I would go for a less basic colours, just like for instance the genesis team kit (i´ll try to find it and will post it here).


Good work Prendrefeu!!!

A very important thing for kit designs:

- the more colours you use, the more expensive it gets. Right now this kit has four colours, and then the ones needed for the ant. I think that is too much. 4 colours/tints is a good maximum, therefore I would make the ant face logo monochrome, or jsut with a white or grey texture fill.

I guess I'm not having the same issues aesthetically that Liggero is having, and it's not because I'm too PC to say so. Perhaps Liggero can make his own changes rather than dictate them to Prend, who has done this for free with his own time?
