okay, I will provide everything, later there will be an my email after the contest ends

Nkita commented on #267

Greetings! I'm very happy with you for your efforts in this design contest. Thank you. This is the design that I choose. I ask, please give fully editable .ai file. I will need to be able to easily delete the plane streaks, move the heads and change colors.
This would also include the .eps, jpg and png files of various sizes.

#253 is the other version that i will need these same files for just in case as a backup.

How will I contact you after the contest?

I have a need for 2-3 more logos and plan to start the next one very soon. I hope you will join again.

Thanks.

Nkita commented on #233

Withdrawn

I received more feedback from my t-shirt printers. Let's work with this one making a few more minor changes. Increase the thickness of the two outer circles slightly. Connect the heads of the people to their bodies so that there is no black space between them. The black space under the bird and above the green might be an issue. It needs to be more space. Let's see what you come up with. Let me know if any of this is unclear. Thanks

Withdrawn

okay
6 months ago

Nkita commented on #188

Withdrawn

Make the overall size of this one larger like #222. Remove the border around the plane and the lines going off the continent. Change the bird to one solid color with no hole for the eye or in the neck/body. Make its tail feathers smooth and solid. Lastly, make the space between its legs wider. I'm going to check if this new one would work on t shirts.

Withdrawn

Let's also see one without the bird at all and the people replaced. Thanks

Nkita commented on #222

Withdrawn

Let's see this one without the green around the bird. That might help. The bird is throwing off the balance at this size.

lohan91 commented on #217

Withdrawn

Oh okay I understand
6 months ago

Nkita commented on #217

Withdrawn

Not quite. Let's make the logo bigger to fill in the black space but leave the bird the same size. Then bring back the people.

Withdrawn

okay

Nkita commented on #200

Withdrawn

We are getting closer. Leave the sankofa the same size and increase the size of everything else so that the design takes up more space from edge to edge. I hope this is clear. I don't want the sankofa bird to cover up the people. We may need to delete them from the bottom portion of the circle. Let's see.

Great. I'm very happy with this design. As long as I can edit the colors and print on shirts I don't see how any design will move to first. This is totally your competition to win!

lohan91 commented on #174

Withdrawn

okay I will try editing with a size of 15 x 15 inches
with a guide from the web
6 months ago

Nkita commented on #174

Withdrawn

Overall the changes require the design and certain elements to be larger: 1) the details of the bird (legs, eyes, designs on the body) are too small to be cut and printed and need to be enlarged. 2) The outline of the plane is too thin and needs to be enlarged or removed 3) The trails of the plane outside of Africa are too thin and need to be enlarged. Once we get all this right we will need to do the same thing to other versions. Does this make sense?

Nkita commented on #174

I just got off the phone with my t-shirt printer. A few changes have to be made in order to print the design using the flex printing method. Here is a link for more information: https://help.spreadshirt.com/hc/en-us/articles/206775719

this version of the color of the African continent matches the background color except for the black background, the thick black color surrounding Africa must be changed manually

what if I made several versions with colors that match the background color, the version for the dark / light background color, specifically for printing needs

What's the difference between this one and #176 and #177?
6 months ago

Nkita commented on #170

Withdrawn

I get why #179 is a better fit as a simpler design. I still like this version more. How would I manipulate the colors as needed on my own with this version to go back and forth between #172 and #179?

lohan91 commented on #178

I have modified this logo to be simpler so that the African continent is more clearly visible
6 months ago

Nkita commented on #172

Withdrawn

I think I understand. Some of my team members felt the earlier designs did not bring enough attention to the Africa in terms of the borders. How might you address that?
6 months ago

lohan91 commented on #172

Withdrawn

my suggestion is to still use three colors without using the background color into the logo, for example #174 and #175
this is the first concept before in number #137, #138 and #139
6 months ago

lohan91 commented on #172

Withdrawn

#173 this is for example when taking the 4th color according to the color where the logo will be printed, it will be less good when printed on a shirt with the exact same color as the logo
6 months ago

Nkita commented on #172

Withdrawn

Okay. What is your recommendation? I want to have flexibility in the backgrounds I can use with the logo. I appreciate your suggestions.

overall diameter size of the logo in this image is 2 inches (in 1000 x 800 pixel images), but it can be resized without reduce the quality (vector only), so the smaller diameter of the line at this size is 0,02 inches it can be thicker depend on the size of the logo

I'll be using the design I select on business cards, websites, social media and apparel. These are some of the requirements from my t-shirt printer. Is the following true about this design?

Lines and other parts of the design must have a diameter of at least 0.06 inches.
Maximum 3 colors: we can print up to three colors when plotter printing.
Please create each color in your design as a separate layer.
All objects and text to be printed must be converted into paths.
Make sure that all curves are completely closed and do not overlap each other.

I like this one a lot. I prefer 100% saturation on the green. Make it darker/deeper. What would this look like without yellow? My shirt printer only allows 3 colors. The fourth comes from the shirt itself. The yellow is nice but makes 4 colors plus the shirt. Keep this one and let me see another version. Thanks.
