How to get the best jersey design

You’re probably familiar with the concept of hiring a freelance designer. But that’s not the only way to get the perfect jersey design for your team. Anyone who needs to have a jersey designed should consider a design contest.

In a design contest, you write a brief describing what you’re looking for, and designers from all over the world submit concepts based on your brief. You then choose finalists, give feedback to hone the designs and ultimately pick your favorite. A design contest is a great way to crowdsource ideas for your jersey and see many different interpretations of your vision.

How did we choose these as the top jersey designers?

We know jersey design is important to get right because it’s one of a team’s most recognizable assets. Here’s what we looked for when we chose our top jersey designers:

1. Design quality

Every time a new designer joins 99designs, an expert from our team goes through their portfolio and considers the conceptual thought, technical execution and knowledge of design principles evident in their work. With this information, they assign the designer one of the following levels:

  • Top Level
  • Mid Level
  • Entry Level

You’ll see each designer’s level on their portfolio so you instantly know whether they’re someone with lots of experience and expertise or someone that is up-and-coming.

2. Jersey design experience

Yes, a jersey is a shirt, but it’s also a symbol and needs to be functional. You want a designer who not only knows apparel design, but also knows how to create garments you can move in that stand for what you want. All of the designers on our list have specific jersey-design experience.

3. Professionalism

Of course you want someone with design skills, but you also need your jersey designer to communicate with you throughout the process, deliver on time and generally, be good to work with. So we took past customer experiences into account to make sure all of our recommended logo designers are professionals in service as well as design.
