The brand name is two words: CatBasher Nation. It is typically written with the mixed case as shown. However, all-caps or all-lower would be acceptable.
The concept that we had in mind is as follows: a mascot style vector logo featuring a cat skull with bat/demon-like wings. The cat skull should be fairly realistic but we would like for it to be recognizable as a cat. To do this we suggest including cat ears in the design (see samples). It would also be preferred that the skull eye sockets contained cat-like eyes. The wings should emerge from behind the skull and wrap around the sides of the logo.
The streamer is a drummer and we would like to incorporate drumsticks into the design - perhaps as a kind of cross-bones design along with the skull.
The overall ratio of the logo should be square (1:1).
This vector logo should be cell-shaded. However, we’d like to see a fairly high level of detail in the shading and overall vector image. But, not so much that it is completely lost when the image is downsized.
While we're not looking for a logo that is 3d it should not be completely flat - it should have a feeling of depth.
The logo should incorporate the brand name in type. The type should be bold and easy to read.
Overall, we would like the logo to capture the following: it should feel tough, it should feel like it fits a metal music theme, we’d prefer that it incorporates blue in the design (shades near #00aaff),the logo should stand out from a background, and we want it to come off as mature, professional and top quality – it should NOT be childish.
We’re looking for an original design. Further, while we have included a description of our vision, we encourage designers to be creative. If you think you have an idea that will work better than what we have outlined above, please show us. To help define the style that we’re looking for we have included a few sample images. These are meant to convey ideas and provide reference only. Please do not copy or use directly in your designs. Use them only as inspiration.
