We put it to a vote last night to see who would get the next mock-up and the fans of Merry Khaos came in droves – beating out her opponents by almost twice as many votes! This mock-up is a lesson in special instructions to reach an even deeper level of customization. Let’s check it out…
Choosing the colors for this design was relatively easy. As explained before, the idea is to go simple-simple-simple… don’t use too many colors! Orange and black are the Dutchland Derby Rollers main colors so it was a no-brainer using them. The Dutchland Derby Rollers logo uses an “Ye Olde English” type font and luckily we have an exact match in our list of available fonts – it’s call “Old London” and available when you click the “adjust font” button in the designer.
Choosing a background color on the Miss Boss design is always a little tricky. It is very easy to pick colors that clash and distract in a major way…
Eek, no! Instead I chose two similar shades of a dark grey to add a little contrast, but do not pull too much attention away from the skater.
So now we have a pretty decent looking design, but there needs to be more. MORE! Perhaps we think Merry’s jersey looks a little plain… and maybe none of the fonts we can choose from really work for her name. Well lucky for us, there is a spot where we can enter in a special request for our design.
When an order comes in with special instructions we do our best to accommodate all requests (although some requests are a little crazy — you know who you people are!). Putting the Dutchland team logo on this design is a piece of cake because the skater is facing us straight on. On other designs it might not be that easy and the request might not be able to be fulfilled. If you REALLY want your logo in the poster other ideas might be to attach the logo to the helmet or even have it be part of the background. With most special requests we send a proof to the customer to sign off on – we want to make sure you love what you are getting!
The hex-colors and fonts for this design are as follows:
Jersey Front: #171717
Jersey Sides: #E05A00
Text Line 1: #FFFFFF (Custom: Wisdom Script)
Text Line 2: #171717 (Old London)
.. and that’s it!
