The design will be printed on a short sleeve, dark-to-medium gray technical T (specifically, it's a Nike technical tee, color is Nike anthracite).
The main school colors are purple and gold (yellow). White is a tertiary color (not black). A third color for the t-shirt design can be white, a gray or black. No more than 3 colors.
We want a clean, simple design aesthetic that can be used again and again. We really like the USA Track & Field team design aesthetic: It's clean, crisp, classic. The USATF web site usatf.org has good examples. Some specific apparel from USATF with designs we like includes:
I like the idea of MVTF or MVTRACK&FIELD someday becoming as easily recognized as USATRACK&FIELD but today, anyway, Monta Vista needs to be spelled out somewhere. So for example if MVTRACK&FIELD was spelled out, then Monta Vista High School would need to be in smaller print somewhere. Everyone knows what USA is but not MV, at least not yet!
