Part of the cloud is going into the windscreen of the boat. But this is very nicely composed. Font choice could be improved though.

I personally think you could simplify the clouds a bit - perhaps even kill the blue clouds in front. They feel like they're dominating your mark. I also think the hull of the boat could use some gradients to help define the curvature more. And I agree with chanpion about the type. I would stick with san-serif but heavy it up more.**Overall it has a nice feel though.

Thanks for the feedback, guys. Definitely some issues to think about. Perhaps I'll give it another look and run it through again.

A pleasant concept. Just one question: on the left side, %3C%3C that %3E%3E is a surf board or a yacht?...

I think the font is perfect. Has a retro simplicity accurate to the genre. This isn't a type centric design. Therefore the type should support but not fight. It's good.**As for the clouds. If you kill the blue clouds in front the white clouds will overpower the white hull. As it stands the hull is the the focal point.

I really love the illustration. I agree with chanpion on the typography.

Hi Leighton - I really like the illustration, but like the others, I think the type could be improved. Maybe Gill Sans or Hypatia?

@mariozitow*Is that a compliment? Or a dig?

Updated typography and adjusted some of the illustration. What do you think?

%22Looks like clipart%22. What does that even mean? There's some awesome clip art out there these days. And SOMEBODY had to create it. Looks like clip art %3D Looks like art that somebody created for a specific subject matter? I don't get that for a critique.

P.S. I like your tweaks. I didn't have a problem with the previous font but this does feel better.

Evokes the flying boat era. Well it is a flying boat of sorts.

Love it, but *very* strong resemblance to Amtrak.

I had no idea this design would be so 'controversial'. Thanks for the backup research, guys%3B)
