Graphic for clothing brand and music group: The Badge Hussars (BadgeHussars.com)

  • Status: Pending
  • Prize: £180
  • Entries Received: 40

Contest Brief

This is a new 'brand'. We need an identity, not just a logo.
The graphic will initially be on caps, T-shirts, rugby shirts and promotional items.
The name may also be used to promote a musical group / band.
"Badge Hussars" is a humourous phrase. It sounds like "Badger's Arse" as in the phrase "Rough as a badger's arse."
The associated clothing line will include hard wearing products for work or outdoor persuits, as well as smart-casual wear for younger people.

Ideally, the products should link back to the website. We will embroider QRCodes onto clothing etc to encourage this.

The text of the 'graphics' probably needs to include the two words: "Badge Hussars"
The text MAY also include ".com" if this can be done without spoiling the 'look' of the graphic.

Please read the comments we have made about existing contest entries for more guidance on what we need.

    Hi NiccroadNiccroad,
    We did think about a badge and feather(s). If we do go down this route, it would need to be simpler, using less embroidery stitches and less colours.

      Hi, no problem. First attempt to see if I'm on the right track. I'll work some more on it and upload new variations.
      Regards,

      Hi Grozni.
      I think the text part of the design is interesting.
      I'm not sure what the white 'U' shaped part and the black 'sphere' are?? I don't think others will understand those symbols either. Please explain.

      Hi Shri.

      To be completely honest, I'm not keen on those for the following reasons:

      I don't like the font, the words look like Badgettussars.com to me, there's a lack of style, there's no 'logo'/graphic, the '.com' doesn't look good in the design and I don't like the words all on the same level.

      Sorry if that sounds negative, but it's our honest opinion.

      Thank you for your efforts.

    Part 2: Specifically, there should not be a badger or a bottom (Arse) in the graphic.

    Also, for embroidering onto rugby shirts etc, the number of colours and intricacy of the design probably needs to be less so that small examples will work.

    Perhaps one or more of: the hat; a grey feather; and/or the gold tunic would work?

    Or a single colour (silouette of a) Hussar or Feather or ?

    ... or something totally different??

    Again. Thank you for your work.

    We have not ruled out the design (or a modified version of it).

    Part 1: Thank you ManikMoon for your entry.

    We appreciate your effort and the use of the Hussar.

    The design is growing on me as I type this, but wasn't what we were looking for because of the following:

    To clarify: We were expecting the graphic to *not* be 'crude' or visibly rude. It should be the opposite. It needs to look smart/slightly formal and be of a similar feel to existing brand logos. The joke (Badger's Arse) should take a little time to 'sink-in' when you see the graphic for the first time.
