Ideally the design would incorporate one or more of the following themes: data, machine learning, AI (artificial intelligence), man & machine, innovation, the greek letter alpha. See below for more details.
Apparel description and purpose
We'd like to design a zip-up hoodie for a team event. The hoodie would be given to all team members attending the event.
We are a team called SAE, which stands for Systematic Active Equity. In January 2018 we are organizing a team offsite titled "2018 SAE Research Workshop", in Sonoma, CA.
Details about the team: We are a group of quantitative researchers, a mix of data scientists and economists, working to develop quantitative investment strategies for our clients. Our main goal is to deliver "alpha" (as in the greek letter), which is finance-speak for investment out-performance, so the letter alpha might be used as a visual element. Some themes that resonate with us: Data (big and small), machine learning, AI, innovation.
We'd like two elements, front chest (side, smaller), and back (middle, larger).
The front should have the name of our team, SAE (and potentially the full name, Systematic Active Equity).
The back should include the event name "2018 SAE Research Workshop", and potentially the location as well.
We don't currently have a team logo, so bonus points for being creative with the team logo in the front.
What to avoid
* Dollar signs or other obvious finance-related graphics.
* Designs that evoke images of militia units, swat teams, etc.
