Proposed logo for real estate development located off of the Potomac River. Revised.
love this one. Would make a great poster in a clean bureau!
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?
Looks like a clipart
@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.
Now thats what I'm talkin about! Nice update mate.
The type is much better now. Excellent.
Evokes the flying boat era. Well it is a flying boat of sorts.
Glad you like it. It's working better for me, too.
Love it, but *very* strong resemblance to Amtrak.
Please explain karenm. Amtrak corp logo doesn't (and hasn't ever) look like this. I find one %22similar%22 vintage promotional graphic. Similarities being it has some blue in it. It has type at the top. It has a vehicle on the bottom.

I had no idea this design would be so 'controversial'. Thanks for the backup research, guys%3B)
Beautiful! It belongs with these:**%3Ca href%3D%22http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/sets/72157594296535170/%22%3E Swiss Posters %3C/a%3E
