Dino is awesome to work with and has a crazy good work ethic. I went back to him with several different changes and he helped make vision become a reality. He helped me through every step of this process as this was my first time using 99 designs. I can't say enough good things about Dino and look forward to working together on future projects.

Speedboats & Big Explosions
We're in the midst of launching a new musical project called Speedboats & Big Explosions. We produce a funky variety of house music that draws heavily upon disco and funk influence but with a more modern sound.
The brand is driven by two fake personae that channel the Beastie Boys "Sabotage" video. Miami Vice is also a good example. The picture attached should give you an idea of the characters :)

We'd really like something that channels the Burnout paradise logo that is attached here. Rather than the city at the top though, we'd like a speedboat zooming forward with some perspective (angled either to the right or left).
Behind the speedboat there could be a huge explosion or another boat or something like that. There could be guys shooting guns off the back of the boat, flying off the boat, we'll leave that up to you.
Remember, the two personae for the brand are badass and live fast-paced lives of excitement. The logo should reflect that.
