Bill Blevins got their new logo design by running a design contest:
Sailing vessel Avemar needs a logo
Check out Bill Blevins's Logo design contest…
The original owner of sailing vessel Avemar creatively mashed up two Spanish words loosely meaning "sea" (mar) and "bird" (ave) to come up with the name. I'm looking for a new design to paint the name on a freshly painted black hull and then to print the full graphic on a very large black spinnaker sail.
Other color requirements
Any color is fine. The name in the graphic will be used in white on a black sailboat hull and the full color graphic printed on a black spinnaker sail.
Avemar is a very unique boat. There were only six Liberty 38 cutter rigged sailboats launched. These boats were meant to sail around the world. Each of the 6 boats were custom designed by each original owner and they are all different. I think it's cool that the original owner made up a unique name by mashing up "sea" and "bird" from similar words in the Spanish language. Avemar will cross oceans late this year. The hull of the boat is being painted black. I posted images of the new sails that are white with black trim. The deck will be bright white and the canvas on the boat will be black. The logo will also be used for social media avatars, shirts, stickers and most likely printed very large on a black spinnaker sail. To play off of the harsh contrast of black and white all over the boat, a graceful treatment of the word Avemar would be best. I'm not looking for bold sans serif name and logo that looks like it would go on a powerboat. Elegant to offset the boldness of the black would be great. Finally, ocean birds or sea birds usually have really long wings and thing bodies. They don't look like a duck or a crow. Thank you for entering a design in this contest! I'm really looking forward to seeing what you come up with and providing my feedback every morning. Good luck!
