Winner - mire.veli
Mire Veil did an excellent job. He is wonderfully creative and immediately grasped the nature of my business. He responded quite accurately to what I needed on the first try, and responded immediately to a few minor changes that I requested. I cannot say enough praise about Mire Veil. I will certainly work with him in the future.

How Charm City started their t-shirt journey

Brand name

Charm City Chain Gang


We are a group of people who are desk jockeys during the week and cycling enthusiasts on the weekends. There is a group of us that gets together and go on long bike rides on the weekends... our own sort of "biker gang"! We thought it would be fun if we had some shirts designed to wear while we ride. For the most part we are office workers, so none of us has the artistic talent to create something that will let us show the neighborhood that we still have a sense of humor!

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach

We are the target audience! As previously mentioned, we are a group of office workers who like to go for long bike rides on the weekends and we are interested in having someone with artistic talent design a jersey for us.


We are looking to have a bike jersey designed for our biking club. The jersey will be a short sleeve 3/4 lenth shirt that we wish to have patterned to resemble a white button down single breasted dress shirt with a tie. The impression given by the design should be somewhat surreal and comical. We aren't looking for a photo perfect replica of a real shirt, rather a creation that is light hearted and unique.

The design must take into account both the front and back of a short sleeve cycling jersey. It should have the attributes of a standard dress shirt, such as a collar folded over the tie, sleeve stitching, buttons, a shirt pocket, etc. This design should be represented in a hand-drawn, illustrated fashion. The jersey material will be all white, we wish for the tie to be illustrated in black, and pens to be drawin into the pocket.

I have attached a concept of what we were thinking. We are excited to see how everyone interprets this!
