My wife and I were planning on having a luau-themed party on July 1, 2006. Even though we were in the U.S. we jokingly referred to it as our Canada Day luau. As the joke continued, I decided to make a logo for the event.
The shape is meant to resemble the look of the sun just over the horizon. Inside the shape of the sun is a maple leaf outline, symbolizing Canada. A palm tree then appears inside the maple leaf.
The artwork for the palm tree is not my own, as this was just thrown together as part of a joke I didn’t take the time to draw one, instead pulling it from an alternate logo of the Florida Panthers NHL team.
The above text and images were copied directly from my original portfolio as I imported it over to the blog. It was not updated for re-publishing.
