Yeah definitely do it. I've tried contacting Collingwood a few times but to no avail. A smaller club like GC would have more time at its disposal could probably take your consideration in. And with the recent Carlton jumper fiasco it appears that actions on this board can spiral into real world consequences.

Just an idea but if we made up your design onto a realistic template and made it look all official and post it saying it was leaked or something and then it circulated around, depending on how positive the feedback was it could probably make its way to someone affiliated with GC and bang. It's exactly what happened with the Carlton clash but this time its actually fake haha
i think i have emailed the club with a couple designs a few years back and i did get a response! a smaller club like ours would also get less emails like that to sift through so chances of getting acknowledged is higher than others i suppose.

could be an option! haha. although it did seem to rush carlton into publishing an outcome, albeit pretty rushed by the looks of the photoshop job haha. i was more thinking of trying to figure out a way to present them more professionally if i was going to send it to the club. i love the presentation standards of some of the rebranding posts on behance.net (e.g. https://www.behance.net/gallery/57508019/Denver-Nuggets-Rebrand), so was thinking of trying to find some way to highlight the little parts of the guernseys that represent different themes of the gold coast.

Wow that presentation looked amazing. Something like that would be hard to ignore especially for GC. Give it a shot, would love to see the outcome of it. You could even try putting through the GC Board and running a poll on if they would prefer it over the current and you can bring those stats to them to show the designs is well received.

a poll could work, but being a fairly small community on our board it's a small sample size of a poll. i liked when members had a say on guernseys like the lions logo, carlton's monogram, our clash guernsey a year or so ago. perhaps if the club does want to go down the path of a re-design a member based poll would help decide. although i still think the AFL has a bit more of a say with those sorts of things, especially for our club being relatively new. who knows haha.

i did put something together and sent it off to them. will let you know what they say, if they do respond haha.

Beautiful :)
You could even incorporate blue at the bottom somehow to look like a yellow/sandy beach and then water?
Looks perfect either way
i like your thinking, with the yellow ellipse at the top and changing the red to blue symbolises a yellow sun at the top of the front of the guernsey with the yellow curves imitating sun rays. i switched up the direction of the curves on the rear so the lines can continue around the side of the guernsey smoothly. i think it sorta looks like waves crashing over a beach now.

Wicked. Same comment re gradual thinning the hoops. Ie relatively thick hoops under the sun/beach and gradually thinner.
Back needs to be predominantly yellow, start the hoops further down on the back.

You guys should definitely go with a more ochre colour instead of red. You could have a new catch cry and have a team song as follows...

Ochre of the land
Gold of sun and sand
Blues of the sea and the sky
The Suns will always rise
The coast will always thrive
A team that never says die

We're the Suns of a Gold Coast sky
Burning big and bright
We play to win the flag for you
We're the team who never say die
From the coast with the most
We will rise to be the toast
We are on the path to glory
Jump on board and join our story
Suns of a Gold Coast sky
Burning big and bright
Fight, fight, fight
We're the team who never say die

Brilliant. Could be used as a clash guernsey? :)

I just tried cutting and pasting my favourite designs from this thread but it didn't work. I'll try again later.

for what it's worth, this is what i emailed to the club. i've seen a few people on here get their designs made into international & state league guernseys, so i'm definitely not expecting these to actually get implemented. just hoping that they see there's people pushing for it and i hope in the next couple of years they go down that path.

Great work mate.
Not my cup of tea but can’t fault the effort and time put into these. Hopefully someone listens and gets you on board

Should just be able to drag each image on to your desktop?
Cheers. Was on my phone before, but now I'm on a desktop it's a bit easier. Sorry about not putting creators names with the designs, you can easily find them elsewhere on this thread.

I'm certainly not trying to take credit for anything, simply saying in a thread full of awesomeness, these designs in particular are really good, and merit serious consideration by the club.

The club might make some of these as a training guernsey?

Have to say I prefer the "rays" starting further up the Guernsey as they are in this version. Halfway down looks a little weird.
