Hi Trey,

Here's the first draft.  Please let me know what you think, and any other comments from anyone else would be helpful.  

Will you be sending it to Canonical for approval, or would like me to? 

Thanks.

These are cycling jersey's that have the approval of the marketing team at Canonical.  There are several Canonical employees that plan to purchase these jersey's.

I'm am hoping that we can use some Ubuntu culture for the theme of the jersey.  Ubuntu has a unique mascot for each release.  My thought was that we would design a jersey that incorporated the mascots of our releases.  The style of the Hardy Heron wallpaper was pretty popular and would probably look good on jerseys.  Here is a link to the wall paper I'm referring to: http://images.google.com/images?q=hardy+heron+wallpaper

>>> Edgy Eft

>>> Hoary Hedgehog
>>> Warty Warthog

>>> I realize that there is a wiki page for Ubuntu Jerseys, but I feel that we want to push the boundaries more than these designs.  The jerseys appear to be limited by the number of colors that they can contain due to manufacturing limits.  Plus, they appear to just reuse a lot of logos and I'm hoping for something new and exciting.
