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.

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?

      FYI...
      https://www.facebook.com/groups/kaijukite/permalink/508909256171273/
      We are pleased to announce the start of our Kaiju Video Contest! Entries will be accepted (uploaded to YouTube and time stamped) between April 1st and 22nd, with THREE winners being selected in the week following the close of the contest.

      Terms of the contest:
      Venue can be indoor or outdoor, flown on maximum 12’ lines (on an honor system).
      Video must be UNCUT, 2 to 2:30 in length with pilot’s choice of music playing in the background near the camera and uploaded to YouTube with this title format:
      “Kaiju by Kite Forge contest: <pilot name>”
      After uploading to YouTube, just post your video link right here to the Kaiju Owner’s Group.
      Fixed points will be awarded for **successful start and exit (or landing)** of the following maneuvers found in our tutorials (you can repeat maneuvers but you only get points for one success each) for a possible total of 40 points:
      Fade throw = 5 points
      Up and over = 5 points
      Launch, 360, land = 5 points
      One hand flight = 5 points
      Fade to catch = 10 points
      Basic rodeo = 10 points
      Two subjective scores will also be judged by each of the 4 members of Team KiteLife - TKL (John Barresi, Scott Benz, Eli Russell and Brett Marchel) as follows:
      Technical = 0-30 points possible
      Style / Flow = 0-30 points possible
      While the indoor/urban skill levels of the judges naturally vary, all have seen enough to appreciate what they’re looking at... Subjective scores will be averaged between the four judges and added to the fixed points for each pilot’s final score.
      Prizes? Oh yes:
      1st place
      $75 Kite Forge shop credit
      3 year KL subscription
      ($173.85 value)
      2nd place
      $25 store credit
      3 year KL subscription
      ($148.85 value)
      3rd place
      3 year KL subscription
      ($98.85 value)
      NOTE: Kite Forge and KiteLife staff are ineligible to enter, as are any clinic / workshop instructors from those two companies.
      Again, don’t upload your video until April 1st, but before end of the day on April 22nd... Best of luck to all, go forth, have fun, and show your best stuff - no shame, it’s all in the effort itself!
      Video entries may also be posted here on this discussion topic.

      We're pleased to yet again announce the next prize being given away to our most appreciated supporters, the Kitelife Subscribers... For roughly 10 cents per day they play a major role in keeping KL growing in every way.
      Repeat of our March drawing, identical package!

      Total prize value around $80, I do apologize for not having sizes available to choose from, these are left over from an earlier order as these are what I wear when I'm out "working" in the field(s).
      ==
      Remember, you must have an active KiteLife subscription to be entered, but you can sign up here!
      Odds of winning for this prize is currently 1/359, and will be drawn on Apr 20th, 2018!
