Matt just emailed me this pic as a possible base for the t-shirt. This is more what we had in mind for the whole "X-marks the spot" thing. If we have any graphics people amongst us (not it!) please feel free to run a muck with some graphics on this bad boy. smile

Possibilities:

Replace the sketched bike with a cartooned/posterized late-model RT?

Surround the "X" with an outline of North Carolina, or some kind of symbol/logo for Mount Mitchell or Little Switzerland?

I'd skip the unnecessary quotes around the X.

Maybe work one of these in there somehow?



Also, I think we should have BMWST.com mentioned somewhere in there.

Great ideas, everyone ...

BREAST LOGO:
I like it and would accept as is (except for needing to add BMWST or BMWST.com)! To do that I might also suggest a slight modification that just may work out better (or not - give it a try pelase and see what you think):

Top text line:
- Remove the word "UNRALLY"
- Change to read: "Little Switzerland NC"
- Recenter

Central text line:
- Super-impose "BMWST.com UNRALLY" centered over the "X"
- I think the same typeface as the outer text lines

Bottom text line:
- Leave as is

REAR GRAPHIC:
Shawn, I love the concept - esp the cartoon aspect of the bike - for the reverse graphic. Good comment from Mitch about redrawing to make it look like the 1150RT (the best looking RT ;-) of course!), but I don't think it completely necessary. I like even better where Matt took it, but I also agree with Mitch about adding the NC shape/outline (as previously discussed).

Recommendation:

Layer 0:
- The shape of NC (solid color of choice or perhaps outline)

Layer 1:
- Bike, Dotted path, X approx over little switz
- All distributed appropriately over/within the Map

Layer 2:
- BMWST.com UNRally
- Distributed appropriately over/within the Map

Layer 3 (text):
  • Option 1:
    • - Along bottom edge of map (just below):
    • "Discovering the Treasures of the Blue Ridge"
    • A wide font (not tall) that spans the entire border
    • Same color as state map


  • Option 2: - Along NW edge of map (just above)
    • "Discovering the Treasures of the Blue Ridge"
    • A wide font (not tall) that spans the entire border
    • Conforming to that border
    • Same color as state map

I like this flag/map. I can also incorporate Mitch's road sign easily into this...

Ooooh! I like this. Can we also add the date, or at least the year?

"Breast logo more like this?"

I think it is more clear about this being "UNRally Ten" than the previous version. I like it.

As for the state/flag thingy above ... I really, really like that!
