Fun Flying Fish Character Graphic!

Résumé de concours

I’m looking for a fun graphical character to put on a small racing sailboat.
The name of the boat is Malolo - which means “flying fish” in Hawaiian/Polynesian, so I’d like a simple image of a flying fish character to give some added personality and “attitude” to my boat.

The boat is a “foiling” boat, which means that when it moves, it will rise above the water and ride on its hydrofoils - it flies above the water (will attach pictures) - like a flying fish. The boat is small - 10 feet in length.

The graphic needs to be simple so it can be easily recognized from a distance. It will be placed on my sail (which is a clear film) and it will probably also be placed in a small format near the front of the hull, near the name (see example photo of “Green Flash”). To do this, I will need to render the name and graphic on adhesive vinyl, which will then be placed on the boat and sail. Simple outlines, monochrome or two-color will likely work best.

The graphical character should evoke a sense of fun, but not be silly. Anatomically representative, but not precisely accurate. Here are a couple different possible creative themes:
1) Hawaiian - relating to the Hawaiian name Malolo
2) Possibly a flying fish from space? (The brand name of the boat is UFO - which is a play on a unidentified flying object / spaceship)
3) Something completely different from your own inspiration (surprise me!)

The overall idea is a little like the “nose art” that used to go on aircraft during World War II. I’ve attached some photos to give you a sense of the boats, where others have named theirs, and a couple of flying fish graphics. Don’t take the graphics as creative direction per se; i am just including these so you can see the creature I am referring to.

Let’s have some fun with this - I am open to new ideas, and look forward to seeing yours!

Thank you!
-Tom

    Our thanks to everyone who participated in this contest. There are many highly creative and fun entries here, and I truly enjoyed interacting with each of you from all over the world. There really isn't a best design - any one of them could have worked. That said, Diego's design came closest to fitting the particular spirit we had in mind for this particular use. He did quite a few versions before we landed on the final design and so our appreciation and award goes to Diego for his design and persistence!
    Will be back with more projects in the future :-)

    There are more very solid entries coming in - my thanks to everyone!

    We do prefer fish that are more stretched out like they are racing and like they appear in real life. Some of the bodies are too curved and they look like they are jumping instead of flying. I posted the examples to show flying fish characters, but didn’t intend for them to be taken so directly for creative direction. Will see if I can remove them.

    Thanks to everyone for your concepts so far! Kudos to those who have taken the time to place the graphic on the boat so we can see how it will look - good stuff. It is important to remember that this graphic is to be placed on the BOAT and SAIL. This is not a corporate identity project, so we will reject work that focuses on walls and letterhead - even if they look good :-)

    Another clarification: The fish character should be a “flying fish” - this is an actual species of fish that lives in the ocean and has wings. I am looking for that type of fish, as opposed to other types of fish that might be jumping out of the water (e.g. bass, swordfish, etc.)
