This is to create a design for a T-shirt (although it could be worn on a hoodie or sweatshirt) for a Martial Arts Team Member.
We like the 'tribal style' designs often seen in MMA (Mixed Martial Arts) style T-shirts but it does not have to be like that, but we are leaning toward that. For the most part our shirts are black. It should take up the whole front or back (not be small). (Google MMA Shirts, Tap Out etc) for an idea...
We would probably like the symbolic image of a Knight somewhere but does not have to have, can be influenced by heraldry images or oriental.
Men and women wear this so keep that in mind. It should be 'cool' and attract the attention of non-martial artists.
It should be able to be worn in the gym when working out or in the street as a casual T... It should even advertise us...
The shirt must include the following on it:
"Philosopher & warrior"
Preferably in an olde English / Gothic font typeface.
It should also have the web address (probably on the top or bottom) saying:
http://www.philosopherandwarrior.com in an easy to read format like a san serif block font. i.e. arial, verdana (EASY to read!)
Colour options are up to you but white and grey should probably be included as it is on a black Tshirt.
NOTE: Multiple images put together are also OK... like a well built man / woman / fighter / kicking / jumping, etc. or just an iconic knight slaying a dragon with tribal designs around, etc... we are 'open' to your suggestions!
The design should look cool...not childish.
Maybe evoking a tough / hardcore impression but not any overly-aggressive or bullying type of feel... introspective, philosophical, determined, hardcore, disciplined, fit, determined or iconic - are themes that could be associated with this.
Ultimately the winning design will be picked by a few of us associated with the organisation - consisting of a couple men, women and teens.
Thank you. Good luck... Get your designs in soon please!
