In the previous poll you told us you prefer a light tiger on a dark background. Now please tell us which arrangement of logos you prefer:

 

Option 1: EpicSki in front, SkiLogik in back

epicfrontski.tiff

 

Option 2: EpicSki in back, SkiLogik in front

epicbackski.tiff

 

Thanks!

I'm not crazy about either logo being on the tip of the ski, but if I had to choose, I would go with the skilogic in the front just because it fits better. Seems like the toe piece of the binding is going to cover the logo in back of the tiger.  Maybe they could place the EpicSki logo on the the tail of the ski.

Haha -- that is the tail of the ski. My software didn't do the best job transferring the color graphic Mariella sent me.

Option 1 looks better to my colorblind eyes.

If it's going to be an "EpicSki", the Epic logo should be on the front. 

 

Just thinking, has anyone contacted other ski companies (boutique type) to do similar things?

 

I'd contact Zak Anderson of Montana Ski Company (zak@montanaskicompany.com), only I'm trying to keep my low profile.

Option 1 has less crowding around the Epic Ski logo... big improvement.

Well, in that case...I like Option 1 better!  :D

Sib, we've done two other contests involving skis -- one with Kyle Pilote and the other with Sterling Skis -- both of which would qualify as boutique companies. We have not contacted any other companies about doing something similar -- we like it best when they contact us, because then we know they like the idea!

I's like to see the EpicSki bigger and the tiger smaller. But that's just me.

Having the Epicski logo in back is too allusive of  the "Apocalypse Now" CMH Explosivs.

Lets just hope we do a better job than TGRsnowfight.gif  I think choosing SkiLogic is the right start!

The logos seem to fit with the flow of the tiger better in option one. What happened to the mother of pearl blue eyes though? They looked very cool.

The MoP eyes are still there. Here's the tiger graphic with SkiLogik in back on the Howitzer, light on dark woods:

Like those colors better than the black one.

Quick question:

 

since this is the Barking Bear Forums, why is there a tiger on the Epic ski? Shouldn't there be a barking bear? Would seem a bit more apropos...

The tiger is a contractor following the Barking Bears' orders.    

 

The current graphic is therefore most fitting indeed.

We got to choose from among the current graphics, here. The ski is going to be a collector's item and a fine ride for some lucky EpicSki person.

So, I'm a bit confused.  When I look at all the skis on this page:http://www.skilogik.com/custom-designs/, it appears that the "colors" are all wood.  But, the choice we were given APPEARED to be paint?  Are these skis going to be dark-and-light wood or painted?

The topsheet is rendered in wood veneers (with Mother-of-Pearl eyes). The picture I showed you was not the finished product but a graphical representation.

Is this a one-off ski for a "lucky EpicSki supporter" or will there be a production run?

The Epic Ski version of the Ullr's, when not on the slopes,  will be used by the lucky owner as art work on a home or office wall.  Ski Logik's skis are that beautiful.  They ski well, too!

Kneale, it's a one-off for a contest, but I'm sure they'll make you one if you like. 

post #23 of 23

Back to the poll ... +1 for Option 1 (Epicski logo in front, SkiLogik logo in back.
