Stromtrooper stickers -- Round 2

We've made a good start on sticker ideas, but I (and at least some others) think we're not there yet. Let's not settle, let's nail it! Designers on the board, it's time to step up.

So in the interest of practicing what I preach, here's a rough sketch for another sticker idea. Going for site name, recognizable bike feature, and travel as the main elements. And I thought of a new slogan (based on this post): Just Ride It!



2010 Triumph Tiger 1050se
2009 DL650A - sold

2005 DL650 - dearly departed
"I am enthusiastic over humanity's extraordinary and sometimes very timely ingenuities. If you are in a shipwreck and all the boats are gone, a piano top buoyant enough to keep you afloat that comes along makes a fortuitous life preserver. But this is not to say that the best way to design a life preserver is in the form of a piano top.
I think we are clinging to a great many piano tops in accepting yesterday's fortuitous contrivings as constituting the only means for solving a given problem." - R. Buckminster Fuller

+1 on this design. Can I re-cast my vote for this one? ;-)

Here's another variation on the compass idea. Ideally the bike image would be a clean, simple silhouette. I didn't want to take the time to trace one right now, so I just posterized a high-contrast photo to get the general idea.

Its either: the journey, the destination, or both. Just remember to have fun.

my shot at it...

I see this as one color (black) printed on a 3M reflective sticker.. My idea is more of a badge (of honor ) Perhaps printed about 3 inches wide.

I like the HTTP thing... kinda retro in the young age of the internet.. plus it makes it more TECH.



On various color backgrounds..

Yeah..it's very much like a badge, almost a valvoline badge.

That just WHOLE heartily won my Graphics background Vote. I am not even going to bother sampling some up. its Simple, eye catching and reflective would look great.

Not sure about color though - reflective background choices at purchase on go with one color (silver/white etc) ?

Now flying the Team Orange colors (yes, I went to the dark Dakar side and bought a KTM...)

:rolleyes:

Much better!!!

It need something like that bug "V" to be seen from a big distance. All the others are way to wordy. If i have to get closer than i would to rear your license plate then its to small!
