Conn says I'm stretching the idea of the ORANGE theme by posting about our header graphic but I felt it was necessary to point it out since it is new. And technically, it's orange. The Cuckoo For Coconuts type treatment was inspired by the original 1950s logo for Waikiki's International Market Place. I sketched it first to plan the layout and ligature connections and then crafted it in Adobe Illustrator. I had to make up some of the letters from scratch. The IMP logo is featured in a book called Leis, Luaus and Alohas: The Lure of Hawaii in the Fifties.
