We are setting up a CafePress.com CelicaTech store. What we need from all of you members are designs to put on the items in the store. This is open for every one to submit a design you feel is worthy to put on a shirt or hoodie. You can see what's available at http://www.cafepress.com/celicatech

Personally, I think Doc's "celicatech.com" with the slanted toyota symbol behind it is the best one for a shirt.

For a dark shirt, with transparency:

Ok... here is mine. Photochoppers help is welcome.

The dragon would be outlined (not filled) and the "CELICATECH.COM" legend would go on top of it.

"Ride the Dragon" legend could be written withe the same font as celicatech.com

How about it, huh?

Just a heads up the in order for the pics to work on cafepress's website they have to be wider than 7" but not over 10'', so when submitting images make sure they are at least that 7''.

What font is CelicaTech written in? I want to design one that just has 'CelicaTech' (no .com) on the front, and then a small CelicaTech.com on the back. That might be expensive, though.

I would totally buy the JDM one, though.

Well according to this as long as we use blank , but not white black read or pink Tee's cos they are signs or gangs, t-shirts we will be just fine.

This is super restrictive when you are creating a product for a product that already exists. You will have to ask toyota if you can use their name of a car (Celica is Trademarked) and their symbol (also trademarked). This also eliminates the use of Toyota symbols with horn's etc. I have quite a few designs but with these rules most if not all would violate them.

I dont understand this? are we trying to design a new logo all together, or are we designing slogans to be placed on t-shirts, coffee mugs, decels etc?


I have a few designed however it is a totally different logo, and it has been drawn not computer generated?

surfergravity- I really like the idea, looks great. But if it were me, I'd have it something more along the lines of
Celica: (n) 1. Spanish word meaning heavenly or celestial. 2. Import tuner car for only the dedicated.

But maybe it'd be too big a pita to have to explain to everyone why you have to be dedicated is because the cars slow to begin with and most require a lot of tuning to make them fast.

Feh. Just my $.02

Can we suggest certain items to be available?
I would really go for a celicatech zip up MENS hoody. I see the JR there but no mens.
A red zip up with a black toyota logo on the front on one side and then something on the back would be sweet.
Maybe on the back of the hoodie on the top we can put "Heck ya Boi! We Made JDM tyte!" :hehe:


EDIT: Also I would suggest perhaps a celicatech "beanie" WITH a brim. If you have seen them before, they have a small brim on the side of it, that would be veeeery nice, I'd definately buy one!

sloceli
12-13-2005, 03:02 PM
To answer all the questions. A logo of some sort and a slogan are what we are looking for.
TEAMFAINT, What you see is the best of what they offer. There isn't much to pick from and there is no zip up hoodies for the dudes. Everything they have to offer is white except for the black T and some chick stuff. They have 3 hats and no beanies.

"Celica" is a undefined in the spanish dictionary and encyclopedia. Only referenced as a proper noun(a name only.) "Celestial" is a cognate, that means that it's spelled the same in English as well as spanish.

Don't get sassy. The logo needs to be a little different to get attention, but very easy to read. Our logo, a motto or catchphrase, and www.celicatech.com(easy to read). If we are not looking to wear them to spread the word, then that needs to be decided too, then we can get crazy like what you are offering up.

I really appreciate your effort. Believe me. We just need more people to give a crap and offer input, designs, and votes. Everyone rags that they want something, but no one puts in the effort except for a few guys.

I was thinking we could prehaps use a toyota symbol (don't know if this is legal or not) identical or close looking to 90CelicaSt's avatar. i made one that kinda looks like his, but butchered it a little bit :) i like his, so mabye on the back we could have that and have the celica tech colors yel/blue goin on the shirt.
and have the celicatech.com writin really big across the front. ok im done talking now :)

I agree. The celicatech logo with be on the front(smaller) and possibly the rear(larger).

However, I would love to see someone do an additional design for the rear of the shirt in a monochromatic scheme(to keep costs down). One or two color should be used tops. Maybe a photoshop sketch/illustration/threshold effect on three of the celica generations, the 4th, 5th, and 6th, since the other gens are basically dead on the site.

Three generations of stock celicas stacked in a diagonal manner similar the cars in my signature, or in a "V" formation with the 5th gen in the front. If no one can do this in a short time, I will probably take the picture in my sig, and apply the illustration effect to it. Nothing like a row of many all-tracs.:)

OR....

We can have a contest. The winner by popular vote will get the first shirt free and maybe colossus can front a couple stickers to the cause also. The people who are not chosen can find solace in the fact that they made an effort to help this place be better. And who knows, maybe more than one design will be chosen. Or the art can be incorporated into the website itself.

The contest will have no rules other than (no porn) the file must be created with photoshop-quality program (no porn) in high quality (no porn). My idea does not need to be followed (no porn). Who knows, maybe a super simplistic design will win due to it being hilarious or just (no porn) because it captures the pure essence of celicatech.

(no porn)

Please let me know how to proceed. All members... even those of you who lurk are encouraged to participate in how we proceed and with the possible contest that will come of this mess. :)

How do we proceed? Should I make an announcement to the entire board?
Or, can someone do my three gen idea?

and here we have it (or a link to it)

anywayz, my idea is this for all those artists out there..
THIS IS A CELICATECH PRODUCT!

or
this is a toyota product

with the ceicatech symbol underneath it.

shadow of a celica up the top part.. be it a 5th 6th or 7th gen.. or cater for all of them..

would also make for an interesting shirt as well...
