    Hello again talented people,

    I need a simple but stylish and good looking design for a t-shirt. Please read the instructions carefully in order to save you and me time.

    This is for a line of clothing related to weight lifting.

    It needs to have the KOL logo which can be downloaded from here https://www.wetransfer.com/downloads/cf8aca64d133b89dd33a160e6fe7fef820160330133436/0ec8a0 And then it needs to have the word N_ATION so it needs to read KOL_Nation (please remove the underscore - I just don't want it coming up in searches).

    It needs to look like some kind of a flag to represent a N_ATION. It is not made for Unites States but I used some stripes in my example as I thought that almost anyone would recognize it is a flag. But feel free to use your own idea of a flag. Please do NOT use any pictures of anyone lifting weights.
    SEMrush
    I want something rugged and masculine looking and please use the distressed look/feel when designing it similar to my example
    [​IMG]

    Colours need to be black t-shirt and dark grey print.

    NO PM ENTRIES please. Please post everything on the thread. if you have any questions please ask. I am hoping to end this in no more than 48hrs. Winner gets $20 via paypal.

    mdhoni1445: thanks for getting things started. Unfortunately none of the designs are suitable. first one is just too busy, second one looks a little too confusing as there seems to be too many elements as well as the third one which you have shown in a different colour from what I requested. additionally, in all of them it seems you stretched the logo upwards instead of leaving it unmodified. I don't mind applying a distressed effect to the logo so it matches the look of the rest of the design but stretching it is not something I like. Right now I would choose my original design but I would still clean it up a bit because it looks still too busy.

    coolwanz: thank you for the entry. It looks good, it is very stylish and so far it is the first time that I see my logo altered and not only am I ok with it but I also like it. The only "negative" so far is that the design doesn't look rough/rugged enough. Perhaps if you filled in the letters and gave them a distressed look? I don't know it is a tough one because I like it but needs to be more rugged, more macho somehow.

    coolwanz: a step in the right direction

    mdhoni1445: sorry I do not know the name of the font. Also, your other design while looking ok, has elements that I said I do not want. I did not want the American flag as I needed something international and also the print was meant to be a single colour but in your case you have added colours from the American flag

    mdhoni1445: definitely a step in the right direction. I am going to sleep now and tomorrow I will pick the winner if I don't get any more entries in the meantime. Right now it is between you and coolwanz although I am not yet 100% sold on either (but the entries look good)

    Thank you guys for the additional entries but they didn't quite get there. I am therefore choosing coolwanz as the winner if he agrees to do some alterations. Thanks again to everyone that took part in this contest.
