    AO Army Jersey Design Thread (Updated)

    Pre-Order Click Here

    Ok updating this thread.

    this is what animal is going to get regarding the artwork:

    -Magpie logo on front

    -It will say "magpie" below the magpie logo and "We are everywhere" above it

    -"chuff chuff" will be on your right collar

    -ToTs AGD logo with hex on top of each sleeve with "Automags.org" coming down from that and "AO Army" above it

    -Automags.org will also be on your left breast

    -The animal customs logo will be on the top of the back (you have the option of saying you dont want it) and "AO Army" above it by the neck

    -The jersey will have the old skool splash pattern on it incorporated with the hex design. will be alot like the pictures at the top right of the screen, with the players in it

    -YOU WILL BE ABLE TO CHOOSE THE COLORS ON YOUR OWN JERSEY!!!!!!

    -The back area is reserved for your name OR what ever artwork you want animal to put on there to represent you i.e. If flatliner333 wants a dancing banana and a heartbeat.




    ok decision time guys, are you more into the old skool eclipse type splash pattern OR the splash pattern used at the top of the screen OR use both

    for those who need an eclipse splash reminder:



    Please refer to post 17 for up to date info


    Ok, plans are almost complete. I have all the ducks in a row except 2.

    1: I have a ROUGH idea of what it will look like and I would like your input in it before I send the template to them. I'm commissioning their artist to do the work so nothing on it has to be perfect.

    2: the preorder, although I want to get your input on design before I do anything crazy like that.

    This whole experience has taught me... never to do this again.




    Ok, through alot of emails and around 2-3 hours of conversations with various people I have come up with this so far. it is in NO WAY a set in stone thing but there are several things that are a definate and I will list them.

    1. We're dipping in the old skool bucket. Mondo from Animal is in love with 90s splash mags and the jersey WILL have splash on it. (there are represented by the crappy squiggles on the draft)

    2. Hex... Hex... HEX

    3. Logos... magpie, AGD, Automags.org and Animal customs logo. These are set in stone but can tweak locations



    ok. I do like the "chuff chuff" and "we are everywhere" what do you guys think?

    placement on things? please help

    the hex pattern and location of... everything is just a place holder. dont look at my art and say "I hate that" as its my art and all it is is a "there will be a general piece of art here.



    OK THIS IS THE BIG THING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    you guys are gonna love this. I was inspired by the multiple color magpies on our team thread.

    I spoke to animal to see if this was even possible...

    he he he.

    I am a big fan of the joker colors, purple black and lime green BUT you guys will be able to choose YOUR OWN COLORS at no extra cost.




    so you see the crap draft below... I'm sure not all of you are purple and lime green fans. so you say you want a red and gold for example? so all the purple will instead be red and all the green will be gold instead.

    so all of us will have the same jersey but in different colors.

    I find that to be incredibly FREAKIN awesome.

    This is just the first design and I suck at art

    I just noticed how little purple I have on it, there will be more



    throw me your tweaks and suggestions. for this im just gonna stick with the purple and lime green... use your imagination for the other colors

    Lulz... Sigh. I feel for you bro. The FB post made me look to see if this still existed... Holy crap it was 11 years ago!

    http://www.automags.org/forums/showt...ghlight=jersey

    My critique of the posted design for this iteration:
    -Color options are highly desirable. I'm not Cap'n Canuck or Master Wang, therefore purple has zero appeal to me.
    -I'm also not Kai, therefore a red star is a ??? design choice. I'd suggest the AGD crest on the shoulders or one side with # on the other.
    -bring the hexes into the design better... they look applied to me right now.

    are the trapazoidal things the sleeves? the color doesn't bother me other than your green magpie doesn't stand out enough. what is your estimated cost?

  4. #4
    Crimson and Cream would look cool.

    Fred... All of your critiques... Read the first post again. And the red star thing... Have you not been around?

    Vintage... What trapezoid?

    Something not standing out will be covered in art when the actual artist covers it.

    He may have been around and STILL not like it. I'm sorry, but I'm with him in this.

    The originals are still the best - which is why I'm wearing that for the game.

    ok better critiques then.

    the black circle with the red star is Toms idea and I like it. thats why it's there. there was a huge conflict with the red star earlier and I still dont know why. if enough people want the AGD logo on the shoulder rather then the AO Army crest then I'll switch it

    you said to bring the hexes into the design better but I clearly said in the first post to think of all that as a placeholder for things that will go there later. all it says is that "a hex pattern will go in this yonder area"

    I also pointed out that the purple and green is my thing but the color options are up to the person buying the jersey at no extra cost. you can make it pink and pastel blue for all I care, YOU have to say what colors YOU want before it will be ordered for you.

    I did not state why the red star was incorporated but I figured it was well explained in many other threads that lead up to this post. I apologize for assuming our members have read the previous posts.

    I also feel there is nothing wrong with the old jersey but many people have put alot of interest into wanting an AO Army/Magpie jersey. If you dont want one dont bash it please. I have asked nicely.

    Fred I do apologize if I came up rash. My wife too the computer and I replied through my phone in short hand. I would actually love to talk with yout about your experience in your jersey adventures and I hope you dont see this as a direct attack on you.

    Dayspring, I respect you... ALOT. I hope you dont take it in the wrong context that I feel a little put down by you. I'm sure this was a misunderstanding on my part and youre still da man. again, wear the old design, theres nothing wrong with it, Ive always wanted one.

    I assume the fonts are not the final ones and will be finalized by the artist?

    Depending on the font we go with we may want to consider using a border on the letters, possibly purple (or whatever color we use in the place of purple) otherwise the words may not be so easy to read

    Agreed

    at this point i have no preferences other than color and BT has solved that for me. i'll go with whatever consensus the forum comes up with. you could always put the AO Army logo on one sleeve and the AGD on the other or put a large AO Army logo on the back and the AGD on both sleeves. the options are endless and the opions will be also.GoodLuck

    Suggestions:

    -Put "Automags.org" in some form under or as part of the "AO ARMY" logo on the front.
    -Move the bird off the lower back. It will be hidden when you are wearing a pack. I think it should go up high between the shoulders. (Get rid of the animal logo.. they arent doing anything for free on this)... put the name right about where the birds feet would be.

    ..and yes get rid of the splats. That will cause issues on the field.

    I'm diggin that design as well. My only concern would be the color options. Personally I'd like to keep the red to a minimum.

    Am I the only one that is bothered that it says Magpie and not Magpies ? I like this jersey as well , maybe swap places of the Magpie bird and Animal Customs on the back? And use pgop2.O's final version of the bird with the shading and such.

    the magpie/magpies will be fixed at animal. I agree on the logo placement as well for the back.

    ok, since its pretty obvious that #2 will win...

    what do you guys think about taking the magpie logo with "magpies" and "we are everywhere" thats on the front and putting it where the magpie logo on the back is instead. maybe shrinking the AGD logo on the front a bit as well

    Got bored so I played with splash colors just to see how they changed the "mood" of the jersey

    I like the number 1 choice except for the splash which is way too loud for my taste.
