PostPosted: Tue Jan 11, 2022 9:40 am    Post subject: Feedback Needed! New patch/logo design (v2.5 posted) Reply with quote

An old student of mine recently convinced me that I should do some updating of things, create a website, get a new patch/logo, etc. Not sure about it, but I had some time on my hands.

I would like to get the feedback from folks here (be as honest as you'd like, I have thick skin). I didn't know where to post this...so I thought that since I am a "karate guy", I would put it here.

Have a look and let me know.

Thank you.

So the following is what I am calling v2.5. For some reason, the background on this visually appeals to me and I think it works well for the website as a "logo". The patch would not include it.

I would be interested in your thoughts on this.

Also, the diamonds you so around the outside edge are throwing me off currently (visually). I have asked my graphics person to change it such that the outside diamonds are light (white) and the inside set are dark (red).

Thoughts on that? Currently, it just seems off balance...

As a patch, what size do you have in mind? Our Shindokan shield is 4-inch; not to small, not too big. My avatar here at KF IS the Shindokan Shield. I do like your design overall. The diamonds play tricks with my eyes, whereas, if the diamonds on the east were switched, were the solid red and the open were switched. Perhaps that's the OCD in me.

Size is an interesting question...

I was thinking 4.5" by 3.5". Full chest coverage and no need for sizing down to a child's size as I would never be teaching children.

Unfortunately, I have found that going above 4" in patch design drives the cost insanely high. I don't teach commercially and don't need alot of these done. I don't have issues with being able to pay for a small run of them, but it is just the principle of the thing I guess.

So, I may just end up at 4" x 3" and go from there.

Unfortunately, I am one of those people that needs to actually have one in hand to make a good decision that I will be able to live with and that is tough to do in a situation like this.

Thanks.
