We need a design for a shortsleeved MMA/Grappling rashguard. If you are unfamiliar with rashguards, they are basically skintight lycra t-shirts used most commonly by surfers, but grapplers/MMA practictioners also wear them during training. If you're still in doubt just google image search "Shortsleeved rashguard".
As i said, the rashguard will be shortsleeved (so like a t-shirt), and it will be fully sublimated, which means you are basically no restrictions on the size/complexity/color of the design.
As for the actual design itself, I am open to anything, the only requirement i have is that there should be some brand presence in the design (i've uploaded the logo of our brand here). The name part of the logo should be present at some level in all the designs (the "ODIN" part that is). There is no need to include the ravens unless you feel like it.
You can take a look at the only product we have so far, at our website: http://odinfightwear.net/index.php?…duct_id=50 to get a general feel for what i've done so far.
In general the designs i'm looking for should be more inspired by surfwear, and less by other MMA brands (the philosophy by the brand is to be less "I'M A BADASS" and in your face than brands like tapout and affliction). So crisp and clean are the two buzzwords.
For inspiration i'd suggest to go to surfstores and look at their t-shirts and boardshorts (www.tillys.com for example). Examples of brands that i really like the designs from are: Element, Hurley, Billabong, Volcom (volcom probably the favorite).
The brand presence doesn't have to be huge, and you don't even have to use the logo, as long as you work the name "ODIN" into your design somehow (so if you have a typeface that fits the design better than the one used in the logo, go for it).
Now, ODIN is of course a reference to nordic mythology, and the first product we made, the Muninn fightshorts, has some of that worked into the design (the raven on the left pants is Odin's raven, Muninn). If you have some ideas on how to tie some kind of nordic mythology into the design, that would be a plus, but definitely not a must (please refrain from using the actual gods though, stick with creatures/beings/items).
