Project:  Jersey design for the Ride Studio Cafe Sicily cycling trip

When:  10 March 2013

Why:  Because there’s no snow in Sicily.  Why a jersey?  Because it’s fun and I’m psyched that people will be joining us on this journey.  A special jersey is the least we can do.

263 Sicily Jersey 2013 - BackdraftElements of Design:

  • Colors:
    • Red and yellow for the Sicilian flag
    • Blue, brown, and black for the RSC flag
  • corsa siciliana al caffe’:  The Sicilian version of the Ride Studio Cafe.  It’s not an exact translation – it translate Race Sicily Caffeinated; it’s an adaptation appropriate for the trip.
  • da caltagirone al vulcano etna:  Start-point and endpoint of the tour
  • 1.900 metri an the profile of Mount Etna:  The height of the final climb up Volcano Etna

Special thanks to Patria Lanfranchi and Cristiano Bonino for inspiration and translation.

Fe 26  |  Having some problems with the Sicily jersey design.  Nuances of embroidery are causing some trouble.  We’ll get it figured out.

February 25  |   Wrapping up the design.  It’s fairly different from anything the Studio has previously done.  I look forward to seeing it completed.  A bit of a challenging embroidery design.

February 21  |  Final jersey chosen.  Final design begun.  We still have two weeks until the trip.  That’s lots of time in Rob Years.

February 5  |  I’ve completed a first draft jersey design; no final decisions until we pick the jersey.  Each jersey that Rapha offers has a different design, so depending on the jersey, the graphic design will have to change.

January 16  |  We’ve decided we’re going to work with a Rapha jersey.  The question right now is what’s going to be available once we go to order the pieces.  We want a summer weight jersey for this trip.

January 7, 2013  |  The trip is coming together well.  It looks like we have enough riders signed up.  That means I have to actually design a jersey.

December 22, 2012  |  We’re providing a custom jersey design for each person that signs up for the Sicily trip that the Ride Studio Cafe is hosting for March.
