We’re in Vegas today. Alright, lets get to work.
Erik, great idea. The boardroom is a great name for a skate team. Really clever. I like the tie on the truck to. I think the color scheme could have a broader appeal. This might be counterintuitive, but your skateboard is so dynamic, maybe too dynamic. Think of it this way, when we do Arena Football logos, we want that thing as dynamic as possible. It should look as fast and angry as possible. But with a baseball logo we would pull back. It doesn’t fit the brand. I understand that skateboarding is a dynamic sport, but the image I have of skateboarding branding is more iconic and graphic. Like I said, it’s a great idea, really great!
Jeff! Very impressed with this re-do. The propeller changes are perfect. First design in this contest’s can. Great work! By the way, what a conversation that went on between you and Matthew. Jason and I were really impressed with the discourse over using the kamikaze image. Very mature. I personally think that it’s all fair game. My Grandfather was a Captain of a Navy vessel in the Pacific during WWII. He traveled to Japan many times after the war. He always expressed a respect for the Japanese soldiers. I think that as we look back on that conflict we can all agree that it’s appropriate to honor all who fought, on both sides. It’s safe to say that even though the US was attacked first, that the Japanese paid greatly. Have you seen Clint Eastwood’s Flags of our Fathers and Letters from Iwo Jima? I think that they were both a great nuanced view on that war, its patriotism, and nationalism. That’s it from me on that. Done.
Hot damn Bill Riggins! Bill of Taco Shop League Menudo fame, hits us with this gem. Jason and I are so into this. It’s perfect in almost every way. Kinda want to start production on this cap right away. The name is perfect. Everything. Chills Bill, chills!
