I'm involved with a non-profit (registered with the govt here) that is a x-country ski club. Their old website and logo was not all that great. Re-did the website and then was stuck for logo and colours. Here is the old logo:
Here are the sketches I was given to begin with. I picked inkscape as I wanted vector graphics, but I'd never used it for anything before. I normally use openoffice Draw. Here are the scans of the art I got:
Here was my first attempt. He hated it.http://gemlog.ca/lgu/marek-16.svg
Click on the svg file to see it in firefox or inkscape. You'll need to scroll down to see the blue/gold version with ski tracks. The steps I took are in the svg as I knew I'd forget how I did what.
OK. Valley wasn't deep enough and tracks weren't "tracks" enough. Also, he hated the colours he'd dictated. I thought my calligraphy tool was broken. Turned out I just didn't know how to change the settings :-( Anyhow, that's why I took apart the lightbulb I got from CC and why I distorted my valley line to make ski tracks. Actually, I still haven't played around with the calligraphy tool yet.
Here is how it sits right now. It has stagnated for over a year.
The white things below are supposed to be parallel ski trails. Also, I'm supposed to make the valley symmetrical.
I live in a small town and this is a small ski club of only around 250 members shared between two towns 60km apart. This is the website http://tinyurl.com/2uqozw3
Tiny URL because I don't want to confuse google. Just beat out a large club in Alberta with a similar name for top hit recently :-)
Any interest here?
