I provided a PDF file showing myself, the particular motorcycle I'd like to utilize (Himalayan), my current logo, and some other images to help with the creative process.
My current logo is text only. I'd like to keep using the font, and perhaps the colors. What I really need is a motorcycle rider and bike that goes along with the text. Perhaps above the text.
The current font is Corbel Bold Italic
If you were able to use the Corbel Bold Italic font, that's great. But if you have an AWESOME concept with something else then I'd love to see it. In the end, I'd like this logo to be something ANY motorcycle enthusiast would be happy to have on a T-shirt.
Since the beginning I've envisioned a motorcycle in motion, with a rider that has features/gear similar to a Japanese kamikaze pilot such as the leather helmet with ear flaps blowing up in the wind, goggles, scarf blowing in the wind, leather gloves, a vintage style jacket and riding pants (cargo pockets?) and pants tucked into high boots. Perhaps the rider is having fun or smiling just a little to go along with the "karma" part of the name. The riders should be up off the seat just a little it it looks good that way.
Please do not incorporate puffy flight suits with big furry collars. :) But If the ear flaps on the leather helmet were blowing in the wind, that would be cool!
My YouTube channel took off once I started riding the Royal Enfield Himalayan, so it makes sense to use that bike which is better suited for adventure riding and some off-road. Kicking up dust and a bit of grit/rock under the bike would make sense.
Also, that bike has a bit of an older style/look to it. That'll help tie in with the vintage looking rider.
I envision the rider and motorcycle going from left to right. We only see the broad side of it with the exhaust (image provided). And there's a good sense of motion. If possible I'd like the logo to have a sort of vintage appeal to it, perhaps a bit of a sketched or stamped/etched look, with a little detail but not too much. And it seems like a good idea to emphasize the "karma" in Karmakaze.
Please note, the stock Himalayan photo shows a very metallic exhaust. My exhaust is black. It matter just a little. :)
