Thank you troopers and Jedi alike.

I wanted to bring a well illustrated and designed, but unique conceptual alternative to the table. I chose a nautical concept to represent the host state without using overused subject matter. Many of the universal Florida themes were heavily used at Celebration V.

I also wanted to present a non-traditional shape for the patch since the 501st CVI logo is mostly circular. The same can be said about the font, which I wanted to fit with the design, but be distinct from the hard edges in the 501st text.

About the concept:
The Rebel Legion heroines turned memaids are placed in a defensive position protecting the Rebel insignia as it rises out of the ocean surface like a lost golden doubloon or treasure. I've continued the treasue theme with the subliminal shape of the text area which is similiar to the cross section of a treasure chest lid.
The image is balanced with prequel and original trilogy characters to represent a greater spectrum of the Rebel Legion and SW universe. It was also important to me to have a bright complimentary color palette that transitions between the two and unites with the text. The brightness is far more representative of the "light side" than the blacks and greys in the 501st logo.


Brack factoid:
I often have to force myself to pay closer attention to color usage because I'm partially red/green color blind. Color Theory may have been my most important class in college, yet sometimes color differentiation and matching still becomes a difficult challenge for me. I have to have my wife pick my ties. Thankfully I hardly ever have to dress in formal or business attire.


Florida factoid:
For anyone who plans to go to CVI, you might be interested in visiting Weeki Wachee Springs State Park, which has hosted live mermaid performances since 1947. Weeki Wachee is an old school theme park from the days before there was such thing as theme parks.
