Ladies Cycle Jersey - Design Process
Rachael, our new comer is in charge of creating loads of the awesome designs you'll see on our website from now on. I was able to grab her for 5 and get the low-down on what her thoughts and plans for our ladies cycle jersey range are.
I recently read an article which supposedly featured cycling jerseys for women which had miles of style. You can imagine how disappointed I was when the featured jerseys were the most unimaginative and dull I have ever seen. Who seriously wants a plain dirt brown jersey? Not me or any of the other ladies in The Cycle Jersey HQ that’s for sure.
It got me thinking about how difficult it is to find a jersey with a load of style for a fraction of the price. Well that’s where TCJ comes in. We have designed a brand spanking new range of jerseys for women and children. All of which come in fantastic colours and patterns to ensure you are seen not only on those summer rides but harsh winter ones too.
I knew for one of the designs I wanted to use out of focus brightly colour lights as a base pattern which made this print perfect. With a black jersey as a base this would be a great partner for any black shorts.
The classic Saltire jersey is a popular one. Armed with this information I knew that one of the new designs had to be inspired by it. Hence, this new modern twist was born.
Keeping the dreaded brown jersey in mind, I decided to design the complete opposite. Hence, this pastel coloured floral design was created. With bright pink flashes that complement the floral print on the front and back pocket of this jersey, it would be perfect for ladies who love the pretty in pink look.
