patglspy got their new other clothing or merchandise by running a design contest:
Design an emblem for a group of Melbourne Firefighters
Check out patglspy's Other clothing or merchandise contest…
Community & Non-Profit
We are the newest recruits of Melbourne's Metropolitan Fire Brigade, and the target audience is simply ourselves and our family members. This logo will not be distributed externally outside of this group, and will go onto t-shirts, hoodies, caps, etc for the 30 firefighters only.
What's your vision?
We are looking for a hexagon outline/border with the text FIRE RESCUE MELBOURNE in the border. Inside of the border, we would like two axes crossed over each other, with the text "est. 2016" or "since 2016" around it (see whiteboard sketches for layout of text around axes). We are happy to play with the layout and sizing of this part of the design, and also thinking this alone with the text "Squad 119" could be a smaller design for the front of a t-shirt, with the full emblem on the back. The main focal point will be text that says "SQUAD 119". For the background behind the text we have two styles in mind -Flames -Melbourne City skyline. With the Melbourne skyline, we are happy to look at a variety of designs, maybe water at the bottom (see whiteboard sketches) to represent the Yarra River, but mainly we want to see a few key iconic structures (Eureka tower, MCG, Rialto tower, Arts Centre spire, etc).
Colour- simple black on white. Style- simple, modern and clean. Aiming for longevity with the logo, some example of interesting emblems and a Pinterest board of styles we like attached. Tone- to be all inclusive. Steering away from a “macho" look. Axes Flames Melbourne city skyline http://pin.it/_3XbS02

It all began with a design brief.
A quick, interactive guide helped them understand their design style and captured exactly what they needed in their other clothing or merchandise.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
patglspy collaborated with designers to refine their ideas
When design entries come in, you can rate them so designers know what you’re looking for in your logo design.
99designs has great collaboration tools so you can pinpoint and capture your ideas
And then… they selected a winner!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
