Project description

Please read this entire brief before submitting anything. Every summer I have a huge pig roast at my acreage. This summer, I thought I would sell t-shirts & stickers to help re-coop some costs, maybe print some posters out. Therefore, I need a logo. I do not want the logo to simply be an image of a pig on a spit, or a pig with a chef's hat, or something similar. In fact, I'd rather not have a pig on the logo at all - please keep reading. One day per week, for 8-10 weeks leading up to the event, a friend and I have a BBQ night, where we test different recipes as we try to settle the menu for the party. This year I started a FB Event page and have begun posting pictures from our BBQ nights, as well as a nonsensical story to go along with the pics. The story is very comic book-esque. I'm the tyrannical leader of a group of master chefs and mad scientists, working hard in our underground gastronomy bunker to develop the perfect BBQ recipes. Our work is experimental, probably illegal/unethical, and fraught with peril. I need the logo to reflect this theme. Something ominous and comic book-like perhaps, reflecting the science/culinary duality of the story? You can check out the event page here: www.facebook.com/events/297575373666706/ I also need the logo to be playful, yet simple. I'm not afraid to admit, a great number of the guests are hipsters, and I want the shirts to be something they would actually wear. The intent is for the logo to be printed about 6 inches in size, on the front of a grey t-shirt. The shirt will be screened, so max 3 colors. Here's some excerpts from the story I spoke of above: Deep in the underground gastronomy complex, in the wee hours of the morning, one of my clumsy scientists accidentally dropped some of the experimental cornbread matrix into one of the many huge cauldrons of boiling peanut oil. As I raised a punishing hand, ready to deliver a swift hard lesson, a thought came to me. Carefully, carefully, I scooped up some of the hot, dark golden cornbread and cautiously sniffed it. Raising an eyebrow, I popped it in my mouth. “GASP! SIR! NO!” I looked around at the shocked crowd of tiny, clean shorn chefs and beady-eyed, lab-coated scientists. They leaned forward in terrified anticipation. With one single eyebrow still raised, I slowly brushed my wild unkept hair from my piercing eyes. “We’ll feed this to my guests, and they will love it. We’ll call it... hushpuppies. It will be so” I have no time for their cheers and exaltations, as I turn and walk away. There is much to prepare before August 18th. ___________________________________ Our team of sleeper agents have been deep undercover for months, risking their lives to smuggle out samples from infiltrated fire pits and food trucks all over the planet. It's important to have hard troops on the ground if you hope to reverse engineer the enemy's secrets. ___________________________________ Preparations have begun. My highly skilled team of chefs & scientists are creating batch after batch of top secret regional BBQ sauces. ___________________________________ Deep underground, inside the secret gastronomy bunker: 'Sir, the prisoner has agreed to talk' 'Which one?' 'From Brunswick Sir, Brunswick Georgia.' Brunswick stew. A secret recipe handed down since before the revolutionary war. The recipe is so secretive it's protected by government legislation in Georgia. 'Excellent. My guests will appreciate your dedication to the cause. They will understand that great BBQ must come at such a cost. Is the man still alive?' 'Barely, Sir' 'Good. Get his recipe for skillet cornbread as well' 'Yes sir'
