Design a FightWorks Podcast Gi Patch Contest!!!

Over time I’ve had folks email asking if we had FightWorks Podcast gi patches for sale, and honestly I have never gotten around to putting one together. At the rate I’m going it will never get done, so I figure it’s about time we set things in motion around here!

Do you have any graphic design skills? Want to take a stab at designing the what will surely be the coolest gi patch in very recent Brazilian jiu-jitsu history?

We are looking for designs for a FightWorks Podcast gi patch and you can be our hero. Here’s what we need… it needs to do two things: look cool, and do a good job of helping to spread the word about the show.

Specifically, here are the criteria we would like to see:

  • The words “” in large, easily read font. It is alright to be in all caps if that’s what your critical, highly-trained designer’s eye desires.
  • Bonus credit goes to those who can also fit the words “BJJ Radio” on there too.
  • The dimensions of the patch will be 12 inches x 5.5 inches, so that’s the space you have to work with.
  • Integration of the tiger & shark artwork (done by comic illustrator Pop Mhan, for those wondering) is preferred. Email me and I will send you the original artwork back. You don’t have to get the whole picture in there, but elements that tie the patch back to the full image would be cool.

Just for the record: Multiple entries are okay!

Yes, this contest will surely test your design skills! What’s in it for you?

  • Immeasurable pride in knowing you designed the official gi patch of the Mighty 600,000!
  • A pair of BJJ DVDs courtesy of!
  • A brand new FightWorks Podcast patch for your gi!!!
  • We’ll bring the winner on the show for the announcement. If you are a professional graphic designer or offer such services, you’ll have a chance to plug your services in front of our BJJ family.

Entries don’t have to come from folks in the BJJ community, so if you are reading this and know someone in the design field, feel free to pass this contest in their direction.

Send all entries to caleb AT (this domain) . COM along with all your contact information before August 10, 2008. The winner will be announced in the episode of The FightWorks Podcast on August 17th!

  1. I’d like to give it a shot, I’m working on a logo for my BJJ school at the moment 🙂 If I could get a copy of the logo as well that would be great. Thanks in advance.

  2. Hey Caleb,

    Would you please send me the vector files for both the shark and fightworks podcast logo? Also, if you have the font files for the logo, it would make this easier. Thanks, I can’t wait to get started 🙂

    Warm Regards,
