Nice topic. interesting.

I personally see amazing graphics in all kinds of brands. Sometimes its just the small details i'm astonished by sometimes its the overall look of the kite.

i really like some of the GIN kites. I expect they had a new designer these last years. Very clean and colourfull.
I like certain details on Switch kites, mostly the wingtips.
Naish with the simple canopys and impressive graphics.
North simplicity but awesome colours of canopy.
Fluid Kiteboarding with suprising new ideas. simple graphics but good overall.
F-one. I like the older bandits dos. the graphic details are amazing.
Cabrinha. certain colour combos and new ideas they used are superb.
Best has many nice graphics. ALthough i cannot stand those hands on the kite... but it works for the 14 year old freestyle punks i guess. So still a very good design.

Ocean Rodeo makes very stylish kites. very recognizable.
Waiman. got its own very unique style.
Flysurfer.. simpel but so good.
Core, stylish graphics. the new kites all look very good. Although i cannot stand standard colours anymore.
New Mutiny kites look better and better.

Ofcourse there are kites i dont like. And for me not liking them are atleast 50 others who are blown away by it.

All Kite companies have great graphics on their kites. It all comes to what you like. This is the reason why we have so many different colors and graphics to choose from in our line of EPIC KITES.
Me personally I love PINK kites. :wink:

Not really just gave my own opinion like every body else. All kite companies have great graphics it all depends on what people like.
Now JamesVegas you can choose the graphic you love the most which is NORTH.

I like the graphics that make the kites fly the best.

Naish just need to bring back that bold-as-you-likes "Jolly Roger", skull n bones design to scare the hell out of the Wainman "Maniac" Evil Eyes.... 8)

Ah the OP has just demonstrated how bad design and poor taste in design seems to so often go hand in hand with action sports and participants.

North is to Apple as Slingshot is to 90's Dell.

I love how any time someone asks "what graphics are best and worst" nobody can resist showing how hard-core they are by saying it isn't important or they want a plain single color sheet at the end of their lines. I think we should confiscate their kites and dye them pink! :lol:

My 2 cents:

Dimitri, the 4G Epic stuff looks great!
