Contest Brief

DeadRatGames (yes, all one word) is doing a refresh of their web site and we need a new Logo!

We're moving to a Retina-enabled, iOS 7 style website (light color theme, white bg, thin font, dark pastel green color used as accent color)

Looking for:
- A Logo
- Yes, it's a Dead Rat! But he's not all dead, just mostly dead.
- Our Brand is the Logo (We don't have anything else)
- Anti-corporate, Tongue-in-cheek and Quirky.
- For a Dead Rat he is the cutest Rat you will ever meet.
- Black and White, so we can invert the color scheme for light/dark backgrounds.
- One rat, no text, shirt optional, tongue hanging out optional, sorta stiff, eyes must be 90% lifeless.
- Very simple and elegant, DRG isn't so fancy.
- Originals attached, please don't laugh. ;)

Most importantly, when people see this logo it should make them smile! :-)

Thanks for reading!

    Thank you all!
    DRG is completely blown away by the talent in this community! Brilliant pieces of work that we would be happy with, making a decision will be hard.
    We based our rating on the items in the Brief, we loved all the submissions that weren't copied from Google. ;) 
 Some subs went with blood, guts, skulls instead of cute, some resemble mice more than rats, many added text, others appear more drunk than dead?
 The simple silhouettes, elegant line work have been our favourites, hit all the points.
    Watching people's faces when they looked at these amazing submissions, their faces light up with a huge smile, that's SO important to us.
    Hope we get a chance to work with more of you on future projects!

    ✓Mostly dead 
✓Tongue-in-cheek / Quirky 
✓Cutest Rat you will ever meet 
✓Black and white 
✓No text pls 
✓Tongue hanging out (optional) 
✓Stiff
✓Very simple and elegant, DRG isn't so fancy 
✓Makes you smile when you look at it
