I am an engineer yacht designer (freelancer), and I want to offer temporary support to yacht design companies in both design (3D modelling) and fluid dynamics simulations (CFD).
In the name of my "company" and logo, I want to play with the word "streamlines " (the lines which describe the flow) by dividing it into "stream" (the fluid dynamic, engineering part of my job) and "lines" (the design and 3D modelling itself).
I imagine a logo made by many lines/curves, where the blue ones (wind, water) stream into the dark grey lines defining the sketch of a SAILING yacht (not motor yacht).
It should be modern, sophisticated but at the same time technical.
Unless you have a completely different idea, I would find it perfect if the word "stream" has the same blue colour of the lines of the fluids, and "lines" the same color of the lines of the yacht.
I am saying "blue" and "grey", but if you think that for example pink and gold would be better, feel free..
---- TO HELP NEW ENTRY DESIGNERS ----
thank you for your works, I'm really impressed!
I would like to give a general feedback:
even if my idea was (and partially still "is") focused on a sailing yacht, I found myself captured from some of your designs which are more conceptual, where the idea of the yacht and the idea of the flow are there, but not directly represented.
This is to say: feel free to go out of my schemes, because they have some limits ^^
(Unfortunately) I will work more with engineers rather than designers, therefore if in the logo there is a clearly represented yacht and a flow, there are some technical considerations to keep in mind:
- In technical drawings the boat is represented with the bow (front) on the right and stern (back) on the left - if a person sees all the day long the yacht in this direction, can easily get irritated to see it the other way around.
- The wind and waves should "make sense".. if there is the big sail in the front, this means that the wind comes from the back and is stagnating (stopping) in this. About the waves - there is a typical wave patterns for sailing yachts, which is: crests (top of the wave) at the bow and at the stern, troughs (lower point of the waves) at the mid of the hull.. I apologize that I did not specified this on the briefing. If more or less the waves are so positioned, it works fluid-dynamically
Thank you all ;)
