Looks great. What looks to be his last request...

Can you manage to paste a foot onto the first image? Doesn't have to be perfect but... I figured I'd ask and see what you can come up with!

You mean like this...

Bwahahahahaha... Actually the hand in the 3rd image is from the 2nd image on second thought it's from another image altogether and you can't even see any stitches.

Oh, thought you might like a less bloody looking font.

I'm so sorry for the lack of a reply to that last post. That was exactly what he was looking for. The t-shirts will be printed sometime in the new year (He originally wanted it for the holidays but pushed it back, I guess.)

You're absolutely welcome to one to thank you for your help (His words).

I have another favor to ask. He wants to revamp our logo. Not change it dramatically but refine it and play around with various ideas. The logo that we have now is here. Basically a circle with a gradient and the lettering on the corners.

He'd like to see how it would look if...
1) The letters were moved towards the center a bit more.
2) The letters were given a white outline/glow effect.

I think he wants the two ideas to be two different samples. I'm not sure if you require the original lettering, but if you do, he used this before.

Let me know if you have any questions! Thanks again and Happy Turkey Day to all!

That's great to hear, I'm glad to have helped. Hmmm... my work on a T-shirt, Does that mean I'm famous?

Your appreciation is enough but you could take a picture of someone wearing the T-shirt and post it here when they are done.

I'd be glad to help out with the logo but I can't access either of the links you provided. They both say "Forbidden".

Can you try a few with just minor changes from the current logo? Maybe just move the letters out a bit and outline them in white? Almost the same but with those changes.

Like this or do you want the stroked edge (black outline around circle) removed also?

I'll check back later. I have a bird to tend to...

Not sure why your gradient keeps looking like green instead of yellow though.

Doh! First the reading glasses, now I'm going colored blind.

I honestly can not see green in my gradient. I see golden yellow.

How's this...

Yeah. That looks great.

I've sent these last few to him for some feedback.

Thanks again for your (and everyone's) help!

I've got some feedback.

- He LOVES the 3D look of it but is wary of how it would print on shirts/patches/other items that we print our logo on.
- Loves the size of the letters and the fact that there's less of the characters outside the circle.
- Would it be possible to just do a solid white outline on those letters? Doesn't have to be completely white but something that might print better?
- Thoughts on how this would look on a black background?
- To me, it looks slightly ovalish? My eyes could be deceiving me though.

Thanks again for your help!

It will work on any solid background except maybe white because of the white outline of the characters. Although I don't think it looks bad on a white background but I would say that is a matter of taste.

Dolphins!

Some suggestions we'd like to try:

1) In the original logo, we had a white outline around the circle. They'd like to see that but in various thicknesses. Should only need 3 different ones to see if they like it.
2) The outlines on the letters are amazing. Is there a way to get it crisper? Some of them have jagged edges. Maybe if the thickness on those was also increased, it'd be crisper?
3) There was one other but I can't remember it at the moment.

Thanks again. We really appreciate it. Do let me know if there's something you'd like in return for your help and time.

Yes, the characters in the original PDF you supplied me with are jagged. Most likely they were blown up from a lower resolution graphic? I guess in haste I must have forgotten to smooth some of the edges. No worries here ya go...

These look great. I think we're close to coming up with one to go with. I'll have some feedback, if any, tomorrow. Thanks again!
