TT Graphics rough draft
Posted May 10, 2002 - 04:57 AM
The graphics look great. I do vote for the extra tank protection. Look at the outline of the Factory Effex graphics. They do a good job of tank coverage.
As for the trademark issue the good folks at Yamaha should be informed. I live close to the Cypress headquarters and would be willing to personally take your draft to the marketing department for there blessing.

I did make a strong effort to keep white off the tank as everyone seems to agree on that.
I also tried to add another triangle or something to the middle to fill the void on the tank, but it kept messing up the rest of the design. The void on the tank is on bare plastic. It is blue decal. Most of the tank is covered. What you see in my design is all surface area for sticker.
That Gray triangle will probably actually be silver in the end.
I tried very hard to incorporate the old style Yamaha design you gave me Bill, but it never really looked that great. I will keep trying and post other drafts.
As you probably know, I like this one. Not because it was the first complete draft I did, but because out of all the drawings I did, this one jumped out at me the most.
Sorry, no seat cover. Don't have a clue how to have one made with graphics stuff. Maybe down the road I can offer one if I find the time to research it.
I will continue to work on this draft and probably another. I know I can't make everyone happy, but I'm trying really hard, so keep the ideas coming.

I just got finished talking to Gina at Dubach Racing and she as approved the use of their logo on the graphics. This will be added to the tail section, and will hopefully include other TT sponsors logos as well..

yznvegas: You are putting these graphics on plastics that are going to be mounted on a Yamaha. I personally don't see any reason Yamaha would have a problem with this as long as it is clear that the graphics are not a factory Yamaha product.
Just my thoughts and oh, by the way, when can we buy them?

Otherwise, looks very nice!

I'll post a yellow, orange, and a red.
I still need suggestions on how to fill the void in the center of the tank. If any of you have graphics experience, work something up using my original and send it to me.

For example, the YZ graphics fit on my WR tank. Not perfect, but still look good.
