Riff, do me a variant same style with the URL text twice as big (less iterations naturally)? Maybe 4-5 iterations instead?

Went for 5.. was exactly twice the font size and 4 iterations looked a little clock-ish to me..lost a bit of the circular feel..  Do you have a preferred font??

No preferred font, but I think upper case may be much more legible, especially in smaller versions.

One more variation.

Nice option, although my eye wrinkles at the color change partway through the URL, particularly at a distance.

Sorry if my replies are a little terse today, juggling some family stuff at the same time. ;)

I can't seem to get the font inverted for the bottom two without breaking the curve but Here is the all caps version also a version without the bottom two..

It could just be put on the outside of the circle in solid color. Then the "TKL" can still be used on the hill.

Terse = brevity. It is good.

Another. I can tweak it so "TKL" is evenly spaced. The second one is tweaked and moved the figure for better balance. The black borders can be removed. Unfortunately, the program I'm using won't work without them. Of course the choice of type face, number and outline of silhouettes, and colors can be changed to whatever you prefer.

FYI @riffclown...

"you better ask your supplier to export the files in PDF [high quality print] file format and send back only PDF file to you. with PDF you can easily open and edit the files in illustrator or any Adobe programs."

Unproven on this end, but I'm hopeful. :)

That's a super cool logo too John!

@makatakam, I do appreciate the simplicity you've applied with your examples but we are set on the dogstake angles, personal meaning and power for us. Also, I'm partial to the symmetrical logo (ring around it - solid or text).

Always hate to decline a sincere effort, but it's said kindly and with due appreciation for the energy you've put forth this far.

Dialogue continues, lots of excellent input, even if the captain is a bit too particular. :)

Will the AI file do??  If you want just the Ring Vector layer let me know since you have the original base drawing already saved..

Using same font as the URL

I'd love to see both this and the other TKL that I just posted, side by side example.

Hoping those vector files will allow you to make it all "for real", rather than adding vector on top of the previous JPG samples.

Thinking further on the URL font, a tad more space between letters for legibility at some distance... ?

Very close...

Slightly smaller TKL, maybe 10% smaller, or a hair less.

Slight balancing of space on either end of the URL, between it and the border...

Not sure if that's best done by reshaping the M (the T has good spacing) or by moving / reshaping the right mountain line / cutoff?

OK, Mountain Moved :) I'm not sure 10% smaller on the TKL is all that noticeable. I spaced it out a bit (also for readability)

Version C with "TKL" a hair down and left, also a *smidge* more space between "com" and the border line?
