So who has designs? We need to kick this off soon.

I only have cut/paste photoshop abilities so I can only come up with generic designs.

I was thinking about getting a hoodie as well. How much would one of those cost

From tadpoles to frogs to Jesus to legends.

am i to understand that there are no designs, as yet?  

guess i can try again.  need a theme to work of off; without some kinda iconography to use as a focal/starting point, it would most likely end up some ho-hum cheapity cheap shit.  

  awfully paranoid, arent you?

I say you go for it, @scruffy . If you design it, and we get enough people to pre-order the shirts, maybe we can get the "profit" off the shirts to go to getting you a gathering ticket. Not sure if that's all you need to nail down to make it this year. Just an idea.

itd be a kick to have done the t-shirts' design, but im not about to accept profits from them.  

theres gotta be at least ten other ninjas here that should be ahead of me, in that line.

Psyral's offering you a way to ensure you make it this year without feeling like you're taking a handout - because you "earned" it, so to speak.

I like his idea. Quit being so goddamn prideful.

In regard to graphics, I've been wracking my brain since this came up again, and I haven't come up with jack.

Ideas I had already, revisited:

  • "Zombified" (or maybe Clownified?) version of the group pic from last year
  • Simple Dickies work shirt with Faygoluvers branding, with matching patch for this year (new patches for each following year)

New ideas:

  • Alice in Wonderland theme - only occurred to me because I had a thought to use ScottieD as the "Gonna be late late late" character, in reference to his constant running during the Gathering itself
  • Back to the work shirt idea (yeah, bite me, I like work shirts lol), design them as if they're Faygo employee gear?
  • Related to the idea of entering teams into the various events, make them to be personalized jerseys to double as uniforms for the events?

Somebody's gotta have better ideas. I'm really bad at this shit lol. Most of my creativity left me decades ago.

Make one that has.  SEND NSFW.  And on the back, have my email.

 

OR

 

If someone made a "NSFW 4 LAW" campaign and filmed some chicks showin their tits while saying my name, or write my name on them, I would be forever indebted."

OR

I can make a song and you film some chicks dancing to it with @ocj_brendan wearing a Lawlalo shirt with a heart on it. Homemade

I'll fuck you till you love me, Faggot!

I'll do it, but only if you send NSFW of your wife.

Is it weird that I already have a Lawlalo shirt with Glitter and the whole shebang on it.

I am not a fan of the "Zombified" (or maybe Clownified?) version of the group pic from last year.

Then the shirt only means something to the few people that made it to the first MM at the wrestling stage last year. I want it to not be specific to certain people. Same reason I am not liking the NSFW Sean Law version of the shirt.

Incredibly good point.

shirt from last year wasnt specific, but it wasnt about anything, either.  except j, shaggs, and pro wrestling, none of which apply to meetup massacres.  

design should have a purpose, one that relates to the event.  

 

also, to be technical, last years' was not the first meetup massacre.  technically, in fact, it woulda been the third, but literally no one else showed for the first one, in 2012.  

so officially, id say that the first massacre was 2013.  

perhaps you were referring to the fact that that photo was taken during the first of the individual meetups last year.  but i lump all meetups at each gathering under one event.  

  awfully paranoid, arent you?

Yep. That's what I meant.

Sounds great. So design one! Do it! Do it now!

need a starting point.  some idea to work from.  not much imagery does relate directly to mms.  

what ive scratched out so far is... dumb, mostly. 

 

meetup massacres need their own logo.  a real logo, not two 'm's made of meat, or cartoons of icp, or any silly irrevelvant shit like that.

I really think the logo should be an exploding Faygo Bottle with meetup massace either as the flavor on the label or written in the pop coming out the top.  Drop a couple Faygomen on there and a hatchet (not hatchetman) and badda bing badda boom.

 

IMO less is more.  Clean primary colors (most likely Green like the FLH shirts which pop really nice) with prounounced popping simple visuals that can be altered year to year to reflect the new event.

 

Another idea is to do it in the color scheme of that current years event.  For example this year its Red Gold and Silver or grey I cant really tell.  We make the variation on the Faygo bottle in the colors of two of them and use the third for the Faygoman on the back or front wherever we decide to put it. 

 

Next year lets say they decide on blue green and purple.  We then use the same design (or a refreshed take) and do it in those three colors to make it linked but unique.

personally, i dont think it has to have any imagery at all.  

just some interesting, readable lettering sayin 'flh forum meetup massacre 2015'.  what more do you need?  

 

[edit]  

course, im talkin bout some lettering that was actually rendered by someones hand.  not just typin it out in a cheap font.
