  1. All of the above - universal use. Should be fairly clear and legible even when shrunk down to 2" wide, or normal shirt back size viewed at some distance. No gradients, solid colors only - keeps things simpler all around and will work better on pins. Good question.

  3. Symphony... I remember that one, interesting to fly but definitely not a performance kite - never saw one win a competition ('91 and later anyway), will be neat to put hands on it again.
  4. It's not required, but strongly suggested as you're likely to find team flying more appealing / accessible than you might imagine and 120' is the standard length for team.
  5. I see. 4 pilot silhouettes, with one idea being alternating the pilot stance / handles / lines for dual and quad... Like #1 on quad, #2 on dual, #3 on quad, #4 on dual. Just an idea, one of the visuals that came up in discussion but we're not married to it. Your request for clarification is understood - I hope that explains things better.
  6. Hi all, It's high time Team KiteLife had our own logo... To that end, I'm officially opening up a new logo contest and giving away some cool stuff to whoever submits the winner! My teammates @Flight Risk (Brett), @mystainedskin (Scott) and @windpoacher (Eli) will also be reviewing and commenting. ======= Prizes (goes to one winner): 5 year KiteLife subscription (new or renewal - $164.75 value) B2 sail (lightly used, no frame - $199 value) That's right, over $360 in prizes will go to one lucky winner! ======= Guidelines, art ideas: Aesthetic style should be sporty, or a little edgy Does not need to resemble the main KiteLife logo Include 4 pilot silhouettes (quad / dual / quad / dual) No actual kites in the art, just pilots, text and... ? Does not need URL in the logo (will add as needed) 1x1 (square/round) or 3x2 proportions (like a business card) 4 color maximum Useful but not required: Vector art (like Adobe Illustrator) Both light and dark background versions For some inspiration, you can look at our existing web presence: http://teamkitelife.com http://facebook.com/teamkitelife ======= How to start? Easy! Just upload your design for review here in this topic, can be fancy art or even a photo of a napkin sketch, although "ready to print" type art will naturally get the most attention. There is no deadline for this drawing, it will run until we select a winner. Thanks in advance, can't wait to see what all you creative folks come up with!

  13. I'll be at Blue Ridge, looking forward to it - first time.
  14. Thanks to all who have responded so far - still hoping to hear from at least a couple more, I'll notify folks when things settle out. @applewpb - I'm due for a clinic down there at some point, Florida is inevitable - great Winter run!
