UPDATE:

Thanks to input largely from Zane and Josh, I have come up with very rough and very poorly done sketches of a design we're heading towards. The overall idea is very similar to the Team USA jerseys, and I have no problem with admitting I have pretty much copied theirs for a large part. After all, why fix what isn't broken?

The general idea is this: Navy blue hoodie, with gold zip and gold writing. Logo on front with a cube and "AusCubers" underneath. Australian flag on upper back, and name of choice below that in gold writing.

I am very interested in feedback, and every idea will be taken into account! Also if someone is particularly proficient with a design program and could do up a much nicer set of images that would be of great help.

I honestly don't like the blue that much. How about a darker blue?

Looks good to me. Any idea on what the font will be for all the writing? Also, is it only gonna be AusCubers or is there gonna be an option for Oceania? (Even though that has a horrible ring to it and only like 5 NZ cubers would probably get them anyway).

Yea it would definitely be a darker blue, I just started with that colour and didn't feel like changing it >.<

Why not put something on the back to fill up the empty blue space?
Do you have a suggestion? I think you'd find that in general jerseys don't have too much going on on the back. Do you not like the general look of this?

I'm still open to other suggestions, although I don't think Oceania is going to happen due to almost no interest from New Zealanders (I didn't really expect there to be, and to be honest there hasn't been much history between NZers and aussies other than myself, so a "team oceania" doesn't really make much sense).

Maybe another cube or making the name larger (kinda like the USA one)

That's a good idea with the name size, the only thing is we have to be careful, because if someone puts a long name on there they'd have to have a smaller height than everyone else, which would be awkward... I'd probably prefer to have the flag and name a bit lower down though, as the hood would cover them the way I've drawn it up.

Does anybody else have anything to say? I know I'm being a bit pushy, but if there is going to be any chance of having this arranged before Ausnats, I need to move forward asap.

Ah that's great Billy, thanks for your input!

We specifically wanted a solved cube, with yellow/blue/red (as per the pic I stole)... now that I think about it, yellow/red/green makes much more sense though.

Also, a darker blue for the jersey and a more golden colour rather than yellow in all cases (except the cube itself, of course).

Could you do that for me by any chance?

The only other idea I have is to have the option to have or not have a hood on the jacket. Not sure if anyone else would really care too much about that though. Other than that, the design is fine with me :)
I don't think there will be room to change the "default" design (i.e. everything but the name on the back) once it has been decided upon, and I think a hood is most likely sorry. It will still depend on what the company I go with can offer. I'm going to start making some calls to places this asap.

I like ausfront1, and the back would look better with the same colour scheme for text.

Personally, I like the half turned+scrambled cube more than the solved one (the solved one looks generic to me)

I vote for a slightly modified version of Billy's first attempt.

A problem with names, I'd like Tim but then that's the same as TimMc's, and I'd feel weird having "Major" on the back.


Rather than AusCubers or OceCubers, why not just "Oceania" or "Australia"?

The color of the hoodie will be decided upon by you when placing the order with the printers.

I'll change it in the draft anyway just to give you an idea.

I'll do a few more versions this afternoon.

More suggestions in the meantime would be helpful :)

Well to me, its looks really good and there is nothing else I would add...

I also like the look of the scrambled one; these are the sorts of things I need more input on. I really only had the opinion of two other people to go on for my earlier design.

What do other people think? This thread is my only source of information, so if you have something to say, say it! Otherwise it will essentially go to a vote, and thus far we have 2 that preferred solved, and 2 that prefer scrambled. (BTW I'm not saying I'm just going to leave it to a popularity contest, but how am I supposed to know what people want if no one says anything at all?)

ZB_FTW :p . I don't see it as a big deal, it depends what TimMc wants (and if he even wants one (he has no choice :p)).

Rather than AusCubers or OceCubers, why not just "Oceania" or "Australia"?
This is another factor I need input on. I hereby put this to a vote. The options are thus:
1. AusCubers
2. Australia
3. Oceania

If there is no general consensus I'll decide.
