I am starting to build a wakeboard site (not to compete with WW) and I designed this logo on photoshop what do people think of this design. I will be big enough to take the good with the bad <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65919/88228.jpg" alt="">

Tony, its a good start. <BR> <BR>Few pointers: <BR> <BR>1. Make the wakeboard a little wider and more of a solid lighter color which in turn will give more contrast and bring out the WakeWizard.com <BR> <BR>2. Do you have the logo in a vector format such as .eps or .ai? Don't know how familiar you are with design but I would make the logo in vector format or a very high resolution bitmap format. What that does is give you the flexibility to have the logo in various ways such print, shirts, decals, etc. <BR> <BR>Let me know if you have any questions.

He needs a bigger board... he would never be getting the air that is shows in the picture with that size of a board... Unless he was a magician or something, .... oh wait <img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/crazy.gif" border=0> <BR> <BR><a href="http://www.enemyofevilclothing.com" target="_blank">www.enemyofevilclothing.com</a> <BR>

I do have it in EPS format I was kind of stumped on the board color and size. I tried to get fancy with the text and first made it chrome text but it was to hard to read. so I went back to what you see maybe,if like you said the board was wider I could then make the text larger which hopefully would make it easier to see. Thanks

Looks awesome!! Nice job! One more pointer, his fingers should wrap arround the handle, it looks like the handle is stuck to his knuckles, other than that, looks great! Good luck with the new site, be sure to keep us updated on your progress! <img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/happy.gif" border=0>

Looks familiar...<a href="http://www.wakeworld.com/wizard/" target="_blank">http://www.wakeworld.com/wizard/</a> <BR> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65919/88234.gif" alt="WakeWorld Board Wizard">

Yeh the handle part was kicking my but. I guess I need to play with that a little more and see if I can get it better. Thanks for the input everyone keep it coming. I am also working on the wizard doin a big raley. I think that will look pretty cool when I am done also.

blindsiderider 11-07-2003 10:37 AM

sort of looks familiar but that wizard is a GIF image that is all over the web except for the board shorts you added

blindsiderider 11-07-2003 10:45 AM

this is the wizard I am talking about <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65919/88238.gif" alt="">

Don't forget the sunglasses and thongs!

veganx 11-07-2003 12:09 PM

I can't believe no one has pointed this out yet...His stance is set WAY back. Other than that and what others have said, it looks pretty good. The board looks like a Blindside Stingray. <IMG SRC="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/happy.gif" ALT=":-)" BORDER=0>

hyperlitenrd 11-07-2003 1:35 PM

to me it looks like he is on a wakeskate, cause that board seems too small for him, also he has that ollie motion look

1lowe 11-08-2003 11:07 AM

Hey, I think he is on a wakeskate too. Maybe just increase the size of the board and change the colour for the background of the words <a href="http://www.wakewirzard.com" target="_blank">www.wakewirzard.com</a>. Otherwise, I think it is amazing! I want to learn how to make one of those.

Hey, I think he is on a wakeskate too. Maybe just increase the size of the board and change the colour for the background of the words "wakewizard.com". Otherwise, I think it is amazing! I want to learn how to make one of those.

If you want help with designing a logo or graphic check out <a href="http://www.meganmccurdy.com" target="_blank">www.meganmccurdy.com</a> she is a graphic designer and my sister she designed my longboard company logo check it out <a href="http://www.organicride.com" target="_blank">www.organicride.com</a>. <BR>But get in touch with her if you need advice.

njladydriver 11-30-2003 9:06 AM

My opinion, I think it's very close to what's been done already. Whether you copied it or never saw it before, Dave showed you how wakeworld uses it. I'd check it out before you market it. <img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/sad.gif" border=0>

rootc 12-02-2003 9:05 AM

No offense, but I think the logo is stupid. I would try to come up with someting else. And no I probably couldn't do better and no I am not trying to be offensive. Just giving honest feedback.

blindsiderider 12-02-2003 3:14 PM

Well here is the newer version with changed board and handle let me hear it now <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65919/90783.jpg" alt="">

pierce_bronkite 12-02-2003 6:38 PM

Hey Tony did you get evertyhing to work out in Illustrator or did you end up doing it in PS.? Looks good, maybe touch up the "nipple" on the nose of the board.

projectely4 12-02-2003 7:33 PM

i love the blindside assasin he is riding now.

canaday 12-03-2003 9:21 AM

i think i see his ...

jetgofish 12-03-2003 9:44 AM

The logo looks great, I would make the hand that's holding the rope a little bigger, it's looks really small and wierd compared to his bicep and the other hand....Maybe make the nipple on the nose of the board smaller too! Looks great though 100x's better than anything I could do!

emoney 12-03-2003 11:05 AM

Hey Tony are you ever going to get those pics to me? Let me know, Eric - PIER <BR><a href="http://www.pierx.com" target="_blank">www.pierx.com</a>

Eric I sent them to your new email address last week I will send again

tfdhyprider 12-03-2003 3:03 PM

the board looks better! Check out the rider...hes got huge guns man thats awesome!

rootc 12-04-2003 6:33 AM

A few thoughts: <BR> <BR>'Wake Wizard'. I first think of a more of a technical wake rider. Possible a slider expert. What doesn't come to mind is a super buff balls to the wall wakeboarder with blue cloak. <BR> <BR>I picture a more slender rider (wizard) doing a nose press on a slider with some intersting things happening in the background such as a lightening storm or strange cloud effects. Possibly take a background shot from the redbull depth charge event. Also, the cloak should be a shade of gray if not black or white.
