Update, I’ve saved down the Templates. They should be in CS. Not CS3. Hope that helps.
These are the first two entries to the Skate Shop League. Pretty good start!
Jeff! This is an impressive logo from you! You’ve really upped you Illustrator game. I can really see the improvement. What I like about both these entries is that they stuck to the spirit of the contest and didn’t feel like they needed to have a skateboard on there. Not that you couldn’t use a skateboard, I’m just impressed that it’s not the first place you guys went. A couple things Jeff, I’d continue the circular design element into the propeller. Also remove the black outline around the Rising Sun. We could do some cool things with the stitching to make this plane really solid seeming. Great first entry Jeff, now get to work on the 50 more that I know you’ll do! Oh yeah, and we will be making some uni updates to the Threshers for 2010. We should post those Jay.
Colin, great first stab! Both you guys should delete the Thread and fabric swatches that you’re not using. make it cleaner, you know? I think this is a great name for a Skate Team. And the scale on the cap is perfect. I think it needs more color though. . I’m no graf expert but I feel like I know the real stuff when I see it. Maybe a blue outline around the whole thing? I think I prefer the original V. Also maybe mash the letters closer together? Overlap em? Can some one recomend a good graf site that Colin can reference? Great first step Colin!
Lets get to work Clinkers, Jeff and Colin are our Magellan and Desoto of this thing. Show some love.
