Design notes from the Three-Brains designer on New Zealand Invention – Men’s Long Sleeve T-shirt

  • The inspiration for this design was Arthur Lydiard, a New Zealand athletics coach widely credited with inventing the new running training technique, we now know as jogging. Two of his proteges won gold at the 1960 Rome Olympics.
  • We sourced and checked the New Zealand flag colours of Black (#CF081F), White (#FFFFFF) and Silver (#C0C0C0)  highlight the New Zealand credentials of this claim.
  • We put a slight warp effect into the text using Adobe Illustrator’s Envelope Distort / Mesh tool so that the text wraps a little around the image of the fern and the two joggers.
  • The original Silver Fern design belongs to the New Zealand government and many of its national sports teams. It is copyright protected. We took our inspiration from the original but reimagined and redesign it.
  • We also liked the 3D effect of the silver fern so that it slightly resembles a running path
  • The font used on this design is called Impact. It is a Sans Serif font. We adjusted the leading to make sure the two words started with the same width.
  • We decided to choose a female and male runner to create more of a unisex appeal. Originally, we had the man running behind the woman, but it did look like he was chasing her, which is why we’ve flipped them the other way around.
