Are you interested in something a little 'weird'?

Intrepidguppy...I really like your portfolio so I'm open to whatever you can come up with. As mentioned in the contest brief, I really need it to fit well into the design of the already existing web site. A screenshot can be found at www.westsidemedia.com/kickback. We are already somewhat pleased with what we have in place, but that is simply pixel based stylized text...we do not have a vector graphic. So we are open to using what we already have as a basis to get started, but are open to anything creative you have in mind.

Dezign 1...thanks for your entries, but these look a little too much like "cartoon" or "clipart" for my liking. Please feel free to give it another try.

foss...I think you're on the right track for the main theme of "relaxation". I would be interested in seeing more ideas, possibly of a person in a hammock or something similar. I understand there is a fine line between professionalism and cheesiness when adding characters like this, but I'd like to see what you can do.

Thank you all for providing so many excellent logos to choose from. We will be discussing these with the powers that be over the next couple days and will provide feedback to any designers we would like to see minor tweaks from. Thanks again!
