The laser "starburst" symbol appears on the sail of all the boats and should be incorporated into our logo. The exact Laser symbol as it appears on the boat's sail is uploaded with this design brief as << Laser Logo.eps>> .
Typically the laser starburst is displayed in RED since this is the color that the symbol appears on the sails of the boats. But if you're inspired by another color, feel free to give it a shot. I believe the uploaded .eps is blue, but this is not on purpose.
You can see our current, very simple logo on our website at http://www.laserinternational.org. Also, you can Google "Laser sailboat" to see lots of images of the boats in action.
This logo design project will be part of a new, updated website so please be careful if you're using our current website for design influences.
Some key words: Clean, modern, sporting, precision, strong, simple.
Note that our organization often uses the acronym "ILCA" and that a logo could incorporate that, but it is not mandatory. Maybe that is a separate design project.
UPDATE 27 SEP -
- One of the unique things about the Laser sailboat is that the same boat can use any of 3 possible sails. I have uploaded the image << 3 Rigs Logo.jpg >> that shows the three sizes of sails on the boats.
The idea is that kids can start with the smallest sail and move up to the larger sails as they grow, but they get to use the same boat hull.
Maybe this idea (of 3 different sails) can be incorporated into a logo design. This is NOT mandatory, just an idea after seeing the first few logos come in. We are looking for your best creative ideas.
- In addition to the .jpg showing the 3 sail sizes, we have uploaded some random images of Lasers racing that shows how the boats are used. It's can be very athletic!
