Kaiju Jiu Jitsu Gear

We have begun to develop product mockups for the Kaiju Jiu Jitsu club! They are a small Brazilian Jiu Jitsu club that is located in Jacksonville, North Carolina. Although they don’t currently have a website, Kaiju Jiu Jitsu Club can through their only social media page. They can be found on their Facebook page by clicking HERE.

We will be starting with their amazing mascot-styled logo! We hope to be developing a full range of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) gear, but we aren’t the deciders for the club. The full range of gear would include the following:

  • Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Gis (the traditional uniform for training and competition)
  • Rashguards (Long sleeve or short sleeve, these are similar to compression shirts but are designed for jiu jitsu)
  • Mixed Martial Arts Shorts (also known as No Gi shorts)
  • Spats (similar to compression pants, these are specific for jiu jitsu)
  • T-Shirts
  • Hoodies
  • Hats
  • Gi Patches

We can also go deeper into the development of martial arts rashguards and the Mixed Martial Arts shorts. This would include a full set of “ranked” options. Basically, we would take all of the martial arts belt colors of the discipline, and factor that into a design that could be used for all colors. It’s an exciting time here at Gorilla Gi Co. and we will definitely have to keep the public updated as we get closer to unveiling the school’s custom designed gear! Here is the slick Kaiju Jiu Jitsu Club logo that we are going to be using and incorporating into the final design mockup of their custom gear!

 

 

GroundStone BJJ Playful Logo

From the CEO:

Professional and personal development has always been apart of my life. Upon taking a college course to get a crash course in Adobe Illustrator, I was playing around with the GroundStone BJJ circle logo to meet the specifications of the assignment. One of which included a gradient, so I added the BJJ belt rank colors to the border. It definitely looks pretty slick.

GroundStone BJJ Circle Logo

The first time that we had the GroundStone BJJ Banner logo directly embroidered it didn’t turn out so well. Before we realized that we should add an outline to the GroundStone BJJ parts of the banner logo, we created the above circle logo as a backup plan. Fortunately, it turned out to be an amazing work of perfection.

GroundStone BJJ Original Logo

The owner of GroundStone BJJ is a close friend of the Gorilla Gi Co. owner. We received the GroundStone BJJ logo above that was created in a word document. We were able to convert and recreate the logo in the proper Adobe printing formats.

GroundStone BJJ Updated Banner Logo

After the first version of the banner logo was utilized to embroider a patch on the back of a BJJ gi, we discovered that the actual GroundStone BJJ parts don’t really stand out. So we decided to add a 1 pixel outline to the GroundStone BJJ parts, which results in the featured image above. The background color is solely for visibility purposes.

We were asked by GroundStone BJJ to make a banner design for them using the following logos to create the featured image above.

Erebus Jiu Jitsu Logo Update

Our CEO is a USMC Veteran, and came across a Go Fund Me page for Erebus Jiu Jitsu, who is also owned and operated by a Marine Veteran. Unable to contribute financially, Mr. Ledbetter (CEO) took it upon himself to help in another way. So upon discovering that the below square logo was their current logo, we set our to upgrade their logo for something that meets the eyes.

 

Here is the original square logo:

 

Here is the final upgraded version of their logo:

This is a rashguard design that we have been working on for some time. It’s part of the BJJ Lifestyle series. This is part of a charity run that we will be doing to support kids in a poverty state.
