Our Ideas and Additional Information:

Seeking to make our brand (logo) with the same red, white and blue with white silhouettes of both a man and a woman (not too sexy) on skates. One sort of a bend the other upright slight bend. Similar to the NBA, WNBA, and MLB logos using, white silhouette of a male and female. BOLD BLOCK "NRDA" in white on the lower blue side.Oval shape border. Right half fill with royal blue. and left half red filled. Silhouettes in the middle. Think lay an egg on its side but not as pointed, as an example.

Skaters should be on quad skates, that is two wheels up front and two in the rear. No skirts on the female.

#2 flip the colors so that blue is on the right. It appears "NRDA" is italicized, I would prefer straight block letters. Also I know I didnt mention it in the scope, but I would prefer the skaters be on quad skates. That is, two wheels up front and two in the rear. Please resubmit -Thanks

Just curious... Shouldn't this be a 3 color job? What's with all the chrome bezels/gradients people?

Maybe it's just me, but I think it should be clean and simple...3 flat colors, just like NBA, MLB, etc.. even the NFL is flat red/white/blue.

People should realize these things when designing for print. Especially silkscreen and embroidery

My 2 cents.

I do it for presentation purposes. I would provide a straight 3 color file for use in those situations.
