Perhaps more fascinating than the bewildered and excited expressions of family and peers, when they discover I’m a derby girl, albeit a TXRG Rec-n-Roller Derby girl, is the wealth of talent and professionalism that comes from the pool of women I regularly go round-and-round with. Take Sinnerfold for instance…by day a devoted Mother and Wife and co-creator of her own design company Blase Design; by night a vicious and speedy derby contender.
She’s slaved over a few designs for Scrape Myrtle—my own snappy alter-ego that allows me to skate like the wind. I know my favorite design, but I defer to you(s). The challenge: channel the Texas state bush that I draw my name from, but make it easy to see (= simple) and even make it a lil fierce.
Exhibit (a): A Texas star incorporated into Crape Myrtle flower.
Exhibit (b): Similar font, horizontal lay-out. Flower a little less frilly.
Exhibit (c): Flower with a single drop of blood (are you scared yet?), and a Texas star embedded in the “a.”
Exhibit (d): Same flower, same drop of blood, and cut-outs in the letters.
My new logo will stick proudly atop my appropriately named “Brain Saver” helmet, which is a dusty blue (not pictured). I’ve chosen a visible canary yellow, after-all, I’m still quite girlie. Which logo do you think works best? (And thanks for your input!)
