This global project relates to severely corroded/worn chain links in the context of mooring floating offshore production systems. It is a partner project to my previous contests "SCORCH JIP" and "Chain FEARS JIP"
A JIP is a Joint Initiative Project and usually involves a number of very large and reputable oil and gas companies from around the world. Those that see the logo the most will be very senior engineers or managers within these organisations, predomiantly male, conservative and aged 40+. They are very technical and therefore will look for a logo that reflects what is technically correct though are OK with it being an interpretation.
The chain links are HUGE - they are used to hold oil and gas platforms and ships in place.
Once again, I am looking for a logo that is similar in look/feel and style to the other logos that have been designed.
I am keen to continue the "chain link" picture in the lettering of the word mark but make subtle changes to the chain to reflect what this project is all about. In this case, it is a corroded chain (like the "SCORCH" Logo) and there should be a couple of large "chunks" of the chain missing (as though it has been worn down) - these chunks should be taken out on:
(1) either one side of the chain (where it may have been resting on the sea bed) or
(2) at the top or bottom of the link where another section might have been rubbing or
I have uploaded some pictures of worn chain links to illustrate this. I have also uploaded a photogrammetry image that is used for technical analysis (see file "F12SZ link3") - you may like to use these colours or this style for the chain link pictorial mark.
The fonts should be similar to the SCORCH and FEARS logos but the same colours do not have to be used.
I have uploaded images and the 2 other logos - please use these as a reference point.
