    Re: Project 300: Case back design

    To kick this off, perhaps we should keep the marine cryptid theme of the original's hippocamp? Obvious choices with distinct and recognizable forms are the Kraken and Hydra. But other interesting possibilities include the Babylonian fish-goat Capricorn and Norse world-serpent Jörmungandr.

    Hell, I'm pretty sure that Cthulhu is public domain.

    Re: Project 300: Case back design

    id like it to be "rich" in design. by rich i mean that there is actually something (like the smp casebacks).

    it should be executed in a fashion that its soft to touch (like the smp). im saying this, because my steinhart vintage red caseback's graphics have the edges very sharp and rather unpleasant to touch with fingers..

    I'm fine with the mythical creature motif, but also think it would be interesting to consider some variation of the Royal Navy diver's badges found here.

    If we're going to have a fancy design on the back, I would also prefer that it be a richer/3d design, preferably one that isn't sharp. I don't want to split the difference and have a complex 2d image etched on the back. Either simple text or a complex 3d carving.

    Jörmungandr.
    That's a very interesting design! The circle shaped form will fit a case back nicely!

    ljb187 inspired me to google a bit and found the following. perhaps without the crown it would look better?
