PromoPirate (All together with Capitalization on the "P's")
PromoPirate is a promotional marketing company working. We supplying staff for trade shows. We staff models for events at car shows. We supply promotional products as a licensed ASI distributor (you know, pens and stuff with your company name on it). Pretty much anything tied to promotional marketing we have our hand and hook in.
Are audience is our clients. Nike, Patron, Audi, etc. We need to come off as professional yet edgy because we are creatives as heart and we have a knack for doing things differently.
Vector ONLY please!
Looking for a somewhat classic "jolly rogers" style skull and crossbones with an authentic like "pirate-esq" font like "Blackadder ITC".
Logo needs to have layer elements that can play into designs for a business cards. Something that can be used as a layer to give printed materials and business cards that aged pirate map look. See example attached for something I found on iStockPhoto that was close to the feel of what we were looking for. The design also needs to have a simple base so we can do one color imprinting for promotional items for our company like pens and flash drives for our clients.
Needs not to be too evil looking or scary. After all our client maybe Dora The Explorer or Sesame Street.
Color scheme would need to be gold-ish/tan and browns. Really natural colors like ages paper and type and not the generic stark black & white contrast.
Bandana? Maybe. Leave that up to you. Teeth on skull? Not sure, whatever works. Eye Patch? Probably but maybe not, who knows. Crossbones under or behind? Not sure. Location of "PromoPirate" type? Not sure.
Overall we need to stay away from the terrible "too's"
too Cheesy, too Childish, too Scary.
