Just screwing around a bit with the old fennec logo to see if there's an interesting and simple graphic we could do with it http://cl.ly/image/410K2b3x223i

Should we make a shirt based on the Friends of the Mobile Team badge?

Or a shirt inspired by the quote "it feels like being thrown in the middle of the jungle with a pocket knife", from http://mytechaddiction.blogspot.com/2013/07/contributing-to-firefox-for-android.html.

Any disagreements about changing the summary line to a hoodie or zippered thingie??
Summary: Design a new Fennec team t-shirt → Design a new Fennec team hoodie or zippered thingie
Zippered thingy.  FEN||NEC on the front (|| is where the zipper is) & a big oldschool icon embroidered on the back.  You know, if it were up to me :)

Ok, so it sounds like this has evolved a bit from let's do a quick tshirt, to let's do a contributor tshirt, to *let's make a team zipped hoodie*. 

Which is totally fine, but I'd like to park this bug for a moment to check in with the Brand team before we proceed. 

Typically the way we do swag is to include them in the process so that we can communicate a consistent brand image together, and that they can weigh in with their wealth of expertise about swag making. And usually that involves Martell and I having a chat, which we're gonna do as soon as we can :) 

The Brand team also has lots of vendor connections we would benefit from -- particularly now that we are getting into a spendier place talking about hoodies and possible embroidery work and so on. 

--

I also want to thank Yash for the design idea contributions -- these are not really on brand for Mozilla but it's great to see the interest and the participation.
Ping martell -- do you have any time to help us with designs / hoodie sourcing? 

Thanks!

Anthony, any interest in taking a crack at this? We're thinking about a nice, high quality, embroidered Roots-style zip up hoodie. Maybe that reads "FEN NEC" across the front

Cool, I'll have a look into some of my old files from my printing days to help mock something up.

So I want to take a quick temperature of the water here... actually, would we still want to do this?

Right now we have the following ideas:
- "FENNEC"
- Zippered hoodie
- Quotes?
- Embroidery?
- color preferences? I'm thinking an orange (not as bright as our Fox maybe)

Any others? it'd be nice to get a theme of some sort going too. Ian mentioned "Roots-style" which reminds me of this..

Love the roots style, would like it to be not too masculine, please! And maybe on the arms, represent our country flags on where the teams are based? Just to throw dispersed geography in there. I'm no designer, though - just throwing out an idea. 

I'm just keen to have something I can actually wear ;-)

+1 yes let's do this! I also like the Roots style.

Can we get an order in time for the Portland work week?
Or a stylized fox/fennec? I've been so jealous of those Firefox OS hoodies...

Probably won't be made in time for Portland :(

While we _could_ just do "FENNEC" across the chest, I thought it worth exploring other simple ideas for a simple 1/2 tone graphic of sorts.

Note: this won't make it for Portland but at least we'll have something (later)!

aaaaand here's a mock up of what it might look like on an actual hoodie (personally prefer the middle one, the last shield didn't work out so well).

My thought here is to create a rather simple hoodie (printed or knit) that would be quick and easy to get made, designed for the fennec team, and hopefully be something simple that everyone would wear.

An idea I'd like to get to would be to also make knit "badges" that we could add on to this hoodie ourselves, however we'd like :) but that would come later.

Taking away the device to keep it a bit more subtle :)

Unless there's major objections, I'm going to go ahead and try to get this produced! yay!
