a tee shirt logo for my company....

Postby weirdpuckett » Fri Aug 29, 2008 3:44 am

My boss found out that I have some drawing ability....He asks me if I would draw something he could print on tee shirts to sell to the employees....I then ask him wether "corporate" will see the tee shirts,his reply is"eventually"....I decide to draw some thing very conservative,namely, a sandy hilltop with some of our trucks driving and positioned on this hill with the company name jutting out of the hill...I was pretty pleased with it and thought that the employees would be also ,so I blast it over to him at the office...He says he likes it but he was thinking more along the lines of "harley davidson" american flags and skulls and stuff so....I started drawing this evil thing today.....what do you think?I dont think the employees will like it at all!!!!

Um...depends on what the company does. But, yes, I think it odd.

I would have to agree with Dawn; what is the nature of the company?

I think it would also depend on the employees...

I can think of at least one coworker who would love it and I teach at headstart.

I agree with everyone. It's a little odd.....no a lot odd for the logo of a co. I suppose it depends on what the company is.

I can't picture this design as a company logo...although it's very well done.

At the risk of overreaching, since I don't know what your company does, is it possible that your boss is looking for a T-shirt HE would want to wear, rather than something that is necessarily a boost for the company, like when someone buys Christmas presents for other people that come from his/her own wish list? You might want to get a more specific idea of what he wants here.

Also, since this is going to eventually be sold to the employees, it might be a good idea to generate a range of different drawings to your coworkers and see if you can get a group favorite to give to your boss - he might accept a milder design if he thinks the employees like it.

Final thought: If you really want to balance a company logo with Harley-Davidson, and your company isn't really all that hard-core, you might want to trade the skull idea for something involving eagles, flames, and/or American flags. From a psychological standpoint, I think skulls are just too aggressive; eagles, flames & flags give you a little more flexibility with a logo-friendly design, and they still have a lot of edge. Heck, with your drawing talent, you could make roses look tough and dangerous, so I don't think you need to use anything as automatically confrontational as skulls and bones to get a Harley-Davidson look anyway. Good luck!
