They were quick to work with and really took the feedback I provided them to make the design I wanted. Great work!
Very creative and easy to work with!

Harry was very responsive and sent back revisions quickly. He listened well to feedback and created so many different designs that just continued to get better and better as the contest went on.
How KinSLO started their logo design journey
Who are you known as?
"SLO Triathlon", "35th Anniversary", optional wording is "July 27th, 2014" - "San Luis Obispo"
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
This is the 35th year of the SLO Triathlon. "SLO" stands for San Luis Obispo, and the event is put on by the City of San Luis Obispo Parks and Recreation Department. We are looking to create a logo that will be used on marketing materials as well as the Triathlon t-shirts handed out to each participant.

To give us an idea of the overall feeling of your brand, let us know which styles you lean towards
Since we are celebrating 35 years, we would like to have a vintage or throwback look to the first event in 1979. I have attached images of recent years to show what kind of logos that we have used in the past. We are not tied to any of the previous designs, but are showing these as examples of what has been used.
The typical Triathlon shirt has an image of a person running, biking and swimming, and this is not necessary, or desired...unless it can be done in a way that is creative. San Luis Obispo is a unique place to live, and the logo needs to reflect the character of the city.
The event is held in July, and many people come from outside of the area to participate. The city is surrounded by hills and located a few miles from the ocean. There is a creek that runs through the downtown, and there is a historic Mission which is often depicted in images of the city.
San Luis Obispo is also a noted wine region, and many people come to the area for a wine experience.
The finished image could be as simple as lettering, but we would rather have something that ties in aspects of the San Luis Obispo community.
