  • Create a T-shirt Design
Task Description
We need a logo for our new motorcycle (biker) club.

For those who don't know, a motorcycle club is a group of individuals whose primary interest is motorcycling and the social activities around riding.

The Extra Mile motorcycle club is a group of riders who are dedicated to helping those less fortunate. We do this by simply by riding to support domestic violence or child abuse victims as well as those who face life threatening conditions. In some cases, we provide protection or assistance to those who need it most. We also often raise charity donations through our motorcycle rallies.

  • There is some confusion as to why our posting is in the T-shirt category and not the logo section.  Simply put, we need a design with its primary function is to be on clothing. More specifically, on the back of a black leather motorcycle vest.  Last time we checked there wasn't a section for "motorcycle club or biker patches" so here we are.  Anyway, good luck to those who are offering designs.

  • NOTE TO THOSE AWAITING FEEDBACK - Hi guys, I know lots of you are waiting for feedback.  Sorry, but I've had a personal emergency which will keep me out of the office for a few days.  I will be able to offer comments on my return.  My apologies to those of you who are waiting.  Thanks for your interest in our cause. 
    Added Tuesday, January 11, 2011
  • UPDATE - I apologize for the delay in getting feedback to some of you.  I had an emergency come up and was out of the office.   In as much, I will do my best to offer design feedback to individual designs.  As a group, I would state that ALL DESIGNS should have the worlds "The Extra Mile" displayed above a design or logo in the center.  The location should be displayed below the center design.  For the purpose of this exercise, please use "New York" as the listed location.

    NOTE - We will also be extending the deadline due to my absence.   I apologize for any inconvenience and thank you for your support.

Target Market(s)
Motorcycle riders. Primarily male, age 18-50
Must Have:
- UPDATE - We have posted several SAMPLE designs to show how there are 3 separate components of a motorcycle patch:

1) An upper area (called a rocker) which will have our name "The Extra Mile"

2) A middle area which will have a unique logo

3) The lower area (called a lower rocker) which will have a location of the rider (for the purpose of our contest please use "New York")

COLORS - We have also decided we like the upper and lower rockers in a white design with white writing.

Should Not Have:
- SKULLS - We help cancer victims and others who may have serious medical issues so we would like to avoid the use of SKULLS in our logo

Comments and Questions
Could you be more specific? What kind colors do you prefer?What kind logo? should it be similar to other clubs logos? Do you have any symbol? Sorry that there are so many questions, but you didn't wrote information about logo that you want. I think its very interesting club and I'm will wait for updates.  
By EvaLiu on Saturday, January 8, 2011 | Reply
Thanks for your interest.  We don''t really have any preferences other than to say that the usage will be similar to other motorcycle clubs or riding groups.  A motorcycle club''s logo or patch is typically identified by two rocker patches and a center patch.  The rockers are usually curved bars with the top bar designating the club''s name and the lower bar designating where they are located.  The two rockers are separate from the middle, larger graphic center patch, where the logo is typically displayed.   I hope that makes sense.  We dont want to use RED letters in the rockers and also should stay clear of designs similar to established MC''s (i.e. Hell''s Angels, Outlaws, Pagans, Mongols, Bandidos, BACA, etc.).  For some background, you might find it helpful Google search for images of "MC Patches" and/or "Biker Patches".

Hi, the heading says t shirt design and your description says you need a logo. which one is it that you need? also what is the text that you require for the logo?
By PurpleDreams on Saturday, January 8, 2011 | Reply
As I understood your motor club is concerning helping those less fortunates. So, in my opinion the logo can contain an image that represents helping and support. Am i right ?

To Hakansenturk,

Yes, that would be the preference, BUT, the design need to first be true to its motorcycle club roots.  For reference, please take a look at some of the sample motorcycle club patches in the briefing.  Cheers,

ok thank you for your reply , do you have any preferences about the lower bar's location ?.
By hakansenturk on Sunday, January 9, 2011 | Reply

I submitted a design. Can you please give me some feedback and let me know if I am going in the right direction?

What should be written as a place on the lower bar ? Do you have any suggestion ?
By hakansenturk on Monday, January 10, 2011 | Reply
It might be hard for those not in the U.S. to understand but motorcycling is a very popular hobby here. There is a whole style and look that goes with it. Follow the instructions and look at the samples the project owner suggests so you can get a feel for it.

I'm working on some designs but would like to know where your club is located and the year it was established.

Hi, i submitted designs. Could you give some feedback ? we can make alterations and work on it.
By hakansenturk on Thursday, January 13, 2011 | Reply
NOTE:  Thanks everyone for your patience.  I''ve been out due to an emergency.  Here''s some quick feedback.  I''ll do by best to respond as well to those needing specific design feedback.

1) ALL designs should have the words "The Extra Mile" above a central logo or design and the words ''New York" below the central design.

2) LANDMARKS - The design should also function with other locations as the club will also be franchised in other areas.  For example, the design should NOT include landmarks specific to New York or other locations.

3) COLORS - We prefer that the text in the upper and lower areas (i.e. "The Extra Mile" and "New York" respectively) be displayed in either black or white fonts. 

Thanks everybody!

PLEASE SOMEONE TRY perhaps using a speedometer or odometer within a new design.  Thanks

Thanks for the invite! Accepted.
Did you want MC on the patch?

By sD on Tuesday, January 18, 2011 | Reply
Hi Everyone,

We should have feedback out today for all individuals with questions. 

NOTE - We are still getting submissions that do not take into account the SAMPLE layouts in the file upload area;

1) SEPARATE AREAS FOR  a) upper area for our name ("The Extra Mile"), b) center area for the main logo, and c) lower area for location ("New York")

2) COLOR FOR TYPE- We have decided that we like upper and lower patch areas in either white with black copy OR black with white copy.

3) THINGS TO AVOID - Yes, we''re a motorcycle club, but we''d like to stay away from SKULLS because or our work with KIDS and also cancer victims.  We''d really like to still have an "edge" and a "biker" look but instead use maybe wheels, wings, road marks, stylized drawings or icons of motorcycles (BUT not to indicate 1 specific make or model).

4) MC Patch - We do NOT need a "MC" on the patch for now.

We hope that makes sense.   Please feel free to ask if you have additional questions.

Hi. I submitted a design with different patch layout. Please see 190450, 190463, 190453 and 190447. Sorry I forgot to include the article "The" before Extra Mile. Let me know if you like my design, I can just add it up for final submission. Thanks for the invite.

Hi guys,

One of you asked for some clarification on possible design elements.  We don''t want to use skulls (as we do some work with cancer victims, etc).  Here are some other ideas for possible use in our design:

1) Wings on a wheel
2) Wings on a motorcycle rider
3) Stylized motorcycles (i.e. illustrated so as to not be recognizable as a specific make or model of bike)
4) Parts of a motorcycle (i.e. pistons, engine, spark plugs, etc.)
5) A long highway stretching into a distant horizon
6) Odometer
7) A thumb from a hitch-hiker
8) Highway road sign

We hope this helps.  Good luck!

Not sure what's up, the clock said there was 3 hours and I created an updated version, but the time ran out before the 3 hours. You can find it here... http://www.redcrackers.com/FLAMES.png

  • Hello,
          I submitted the design #199989, as you can see the  rockers are not so good as the logo in the middle. This is because I didn't had the time to make them as I wanted to do them. It is not a big deal for me to design other rockers if you want.
