Simon is leading a swim tour from San Francisco to Sydney in January 2013, to swim the Palm Beach to Whale Beach "Big Swim", enjoy Australia Day and a bunch of other Syd-centric stuff you can only do in January. I cant wait! PLUS we are getting special order Budgie Smugglers for the occasion. But first - I have to design a logo for the team gear.
I had been messing around with a combination of the Golden Gate and Sydney Harbour bridges, with it was all getting a bit esoteric yet chunky. Then I jumped on line for some inspiration, and found this collage of "the best logo designs of all time". its a very US-centric selection but it emphasized to me the importance of integrating the word. So - below is where I am at: the original combo bridges logo that doesnt really tell the story but could be cool.....(maybe a bit architectural tho), and the logo one inspired by Ken Done's classic
About a year ago I worked with tea tree expert Dr Lyall Williams to formulate a delicious and effective range of dog grooming products based on Australian essential oils. We call it ttfordogs - although a fair handful of humans use it too - and its packaged in recycled plastic, and doing very nicely thankyou.
Now sometimes in a startup business you have to sacrifice pride for the the bottom line - and I really feel like I have put it out there for tt. At the SuperZoo show we were asked to put up video explaining our products. Why me? Because Simon refused to wear the hat!
Taking one for the team - here I am spruikin' the goods....
