USA-26 One Life J/99

As I wrote before, it was amazing to work with Yani and the gang at Prism Graphics in Seattle. You never really know how a design in your head will transfer to paper. Often times, it just doesn’t.

Then there is the problem of translating the paper design to real life. That’s easy when ‘real life’ is a business card or a web site. Not so easy when you’re going from 2D paper to the lovely 3D curves of a boat hull.

I did my homework, though, and I was pretty confident Prism had the experience to make it happen. The owner of Prism himself showed up at CSR today to start the process. Once again, I worked from the car so I could be around to see it start to happen… you know, in case my ‘input’ was needed.

(Yeah, that’s a lie. I’m so excited to see the boat art there was NO WAY I was not going to be around.)

One unfortunately L-O-N-G conference call later, and I missed greeting the Prism team when they arrived, but was there early enough to see everything start to happen.

As a reminder, here’s what Yani came up with…

And here’s the final product!

I know I’m biased, but I think she’s (sniff) beautiful!

It’s worth noting what you see here is not the final-final version. The Seattle Boat Show has some odd rules, one of which is no boats on the show floor with names on them. We’re leaving the One Life name and the stern art off until after the show… so stay tuned!

Finally, huge props to the team at Prism Graphics. They’ve been absolutely great to work with throughout. If you need boat art, car wraps, or even crew swag — they can hook you up.
