Artwork

.
Have just had the artwork emailed for approval. I sanctioned one small change - yellow border is now only top and bottom, otherwise would look too 'stripy' with white webbing on the vertical plus a yellow stripe.

Nice! - Although I'd envisaged the sky more cornflower and less turquoise but it's probably just my crappy monitor.

It is more turquoise - its to do with the palette available I gather, but I have enquired. I thiknk it is fine with the turquoise, just means you will have to change your avatar.

Better than a certain drunken mouse anyway . . .

I think it looks great.

I look forward to seeing the real thing.

The aqua colour for the sky is not available in 400 denier any more, so the only other two blue options are teal or medium blue for the sky

(see below)

What does the team think?? Personally I say go with the teal . . .

I think that teal looks a bit stormy and would prefer the mid blue. I'm going to change my avatar back to Slocum if we don't settle on one soon. :)

I think may fade into "sameness" once the sun (are we due some next year?) get's to them . Go for maximum contrast.
If mine goes peely-wally I want a refund.

If we're down to those two, the bottom one.
That'll be grouse then. or springing clay.

I know this is a bit like throwing a spanner in the works but...................

I don't think either of the latest options are particularly satisfactory.

Would it be possible to seek another manufacturer who had a more comprehensive palette.

I thought the version you posted on the 25th November was excellent. I think those colours reflected the area many of us sail in. I'm not sure that the current options do this.

Just a thought

Proposed burgee colours

Postby JohnBuch » Mon Dec 01, 2008 10:48 pm

Tend to agree with Ocklepoint - not in a particular hurry as boat won't be in the water until April- However realise this could meant more hassle for webcraft - in which case I would go with the mid- blue.
