One more variation.

What about putting the url in white from 12 to 5oclock on the blue...reversed so the top of the letters are at circles edge?

One of the very nice things about 1 color logos is you can easily do some fun masking effects.. Not suitable for printing on T-Shirts or anything but fun for web.

I tried opening the AI file in Illustrator but nothing was editable... ?

let me see what i can do. the other layered version is like 300mb. all of the vector work was eating up memory. How can I get a 300MB File to you??

I switched from 300DPI back to the 72DPI ye started with.. Does this help??

Still not editable in AI. :(

May I ask what element you want to edit? Like you, once I got items where you wanted  they were rastored in.

Okay, I think I've worked up a fairly comparable AI file on my end... Going to send it along to a friend who does graphic design for a living for clean up, and to play with a couple other ideas. ;)

So, I'm looking back through the posts on this thread to consider due credit for contributions actually utilized in the current (final?) design - there was constructive discussion by many of you but here's what I've made note of...

@makatakam - 1, 2 and 4 lines, overlapping (design idea).

@riffclown - circle and URL placement (graphics work).

I think everything else actually came out of my twisted head or was inspired by stuff I found on the web... Any debate on attribution as I've listed it above?

Please speak frankly, this is a family. :)

I agree with your synopsis of major contributors. There were two parts to the prize. Why not offer one part to each of them...or three years subscription to each?

I think that would be a great idea.  Personally, I'm paid up on Kitelife already for a few years and I've been shopping for B2's already. I'd be perfectly happy with the kite. I even have a frame ready for it.. The 5 year subscription extension could go to @makatakam

Done deal! I sure love amiable folks. :)

Mark, you just let me know on the subscription... Apply toward renewals, or you can also gift to other(s).

Rob, I'll ship that sail when I'm home in a couple weeks.

Love all you guys, great group project!

Thanks for your interest and participation.

Wow!

Love the colors Joanna, we're toying with a colorized pin for each pilot... Rasta, blue / white / grey and black / white. :)

Mark, those are super sweet - the team will look at them together.

      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!
      Three brand new digitally printed performance (quick dry) shirts in Large size (almost XL fit) each with the following graphics:
      Kite Forge (small breast logo, large back logo) Team KiteLife (small breast logo, large back logo) JB / KiteLife (small JB breast logo, large KiteLife logo and more on back)            
      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!
