Project description

Design is for a boat name and will appear on the transom of a yacht, clothing, towels, etc. Immediately below the design on the transom will be the hailing port "Nokesville VA". Hailing port will not appear anywhere else. Please suggest font, color, etc. for hailing port to coordinate with the logo.

Cole is our family's name, trying a little play on words/sounds.
Like the idea of integrating a ships wheel in the design.
Inspiration is from the Jimmy Buffett song "Nautical wheelers who call themselves sailors play fiddle under the stars, petticoats rustling, workin' shoes scufflin' and shuffle on down to the bars..." 
Transom is white, but accent color on hull is blue steel metallic by Sea Ray. Model is L650 Fly.
Yes, we're Parrotheads.
We are also running a logo contest for the boat name Lucky Enough. Please try that one too.

  • some work on colors and monkeys fist... #39
  • I think maybe what you were telling me is that you are going to have each letter cut out when they are made and have each one attached separately on the transom with a backlight behind each one. Is that it?

    I can make any adjustments you like. My monkeys knot is first attempt on something like that, so please let me know if something you want changed. Not sure what colors you wanted for star? #38
  • hope this is more what you are after...let me know if not... #35
  • Hope you like. #34
  • I like this, but with a few minor changes. change knot to Nautical Star; change ships wheel to a monkey's fist (a knot that looks like a ball); remove circle and background; make lettering dark blue. the letters and shapes will be cut out individually and back lit. #33
    • Understand all but "letters and shapes will be cut out individually and back lit". What do you mean by backlit? Do you mean highlighted around each letter and shape? If so, what color do you want as secondary color with the dark blue?
      About #33, @kcole

  • Please let me know if you would like to see something different on this design. Your feedback would be appreciated. #33
  • I love the addition of rope. try something besides a circle. perhaps tying one end to the anchor and then other end loose or integrated into a letter #14
    • @kcole Thank you for the feedback, you can see the changes in #30

  • I like where this is headed. remove 2 wheels add 5 of something to represent 5 family members better quality banner use of rope with a knot would reference our previous boat named Knot 4 Sail #17
    • @kcole Thank you for the feedback, you can see the changes in #32

  • try a different font - simpler and more classy change horizontal lines to be rope and pass them thru anchor wheel should be turned so that one handle points straight up #13
    • @kcole Thank you for the feedback, you can see the changes in #31

  • love the parrot try putting wheel between name and hailing port or try making the "o" in Cole a wheel #2
  • I like where you are going, but not sure what it is I don't like - maybe the font. better quality ships wheel - with more detail. #20
  • with black and gold...Please let me know if you would like to see something different on this design. Your feedback would be appreciated. #20
  • Can match hull color exactly with paint chip or number. This is closest approximation I could get from the Lucky Enough contest pic of hull.
