Well, do we have an artistic HTF member(s) who want to take a stab at designing a HTF logo for the ARFCOM build-your-own shirts? We're all going to need a cheesy gun related t-shirt to cover up our CCW's pretty soon!

In for pics of the HTF logo....
Link Posted: 5/15/2011 5:12:11 PM EDT
In case nobody has seen the already available designs, they can be found here in the store forum. There are some pretty cool ones, and some pretty simple designs. Lets see some ideas!

A badger (not bucky, but similar), with the boltface on his chest/shirt, carrying a long gun...M4, AK, or a pistol. Maybe a WI sillhouette (sp) in the background to avoid confusion.

Here's the badger the 115th FW Fire Department uses. Could be a good starting point to come up with something. Maybe a badger like this, crawling through the middle of a BFL, laid over a US Flag outline of Wisconsin?

I like it!

I may take a crack at it tonight if I have time.  Been a long time since I've attempted something like that.

I like that too! I have some artistic inclinations, but my non-existent 'shop skilsl suck...:)

Badger through boltface, WI background, possibly the flag over the state.

How about something that doesn't use anything related to ARFCOM? Something unique perhaps?  Just a thought.

Something that maybe ar-15.com can't claim is theirs because it has their logo on it. Not trying to sound anti ar15.com, just saying it would be nice if it was a group thing that nobody could take away from the group as a whole.

I am thinking a Hippie putting flowers in a gun barrel.  In the background would be a Moon rising over the skyline of Madison and on the back the words to the Kumbaya song.  Why?  Because no one would be thinking CCW under that shirt

On the inside of the shirt is that crazed, rabid looking Badger posted above.

Two shirts in one.

I REALLY like this idea. I'll take a walk around the square this weekend at farmers market. You'll see a TON of shirts like these. PERFECT idea!!!

IIRC, Spawn might be able to help us out as a group if we can forward him some of our ideas.

 



He's currently putting together some designs for the Survival forum community that are pretty darn good.










I like the badger coming through the BFL with the state silhouette in the background idea.

As much as I like the hippie shirt featuring the Madison skyline, I think the badger idea might be a little bit cooler when not up in commie-ville. I saw in the store forum that Spawn was the go to guy. Unless anyone has a problem with it, I'd be happy to contact him with this thread, and our ideas, to see what we get. I'd still love to see some home grown art too! I can draw by hand, but I have limited computer skills, and no access to any program to make anything other than MS Paint.
Link Posted: 5/17/2011 5:22:26 PM EDT
I sent an IM to Spawn. We are 3rd on the list now behind Minnesota and Texas. He said that we should be able to get something done by next week at the very latest. Still want to see what our home-grown talent can produce for prototypes!

I kind of agree, especially since now there is the nice little R next to the BFL on the top left of the page.
Yes we are arfcommer's, but we are WIHTF first.

I could draw a crappy stick person carrying a crappy stick flag, and that's about the extent of my artistic side... So lets see what you guys came up with.

Can't wait to sport a WHTF tee shirt.

I'd prefer a polo with a simple logo but that's just me.  



Just not a t-shirt guy.  I know, loser.  Don't really wear hats on my big head either.



But yes, I'll still get in on one either way if it helps the cause.

I agree.  A polo would be nice, but I would probably pick up a tshirt too.

something simple without the arf bfl would be great.

How about a bolt face, less the dot, with a badger in the center, and wihtf below the bolt face?

While I appreciate the opinions that this not be an "ARFCOM" shirt, the fact is they are going to be the ones footing the bill on any art work, and screen printing processes, etc,  to make the shirt available at a very reasonable cost in their store. I order a lot of printed shirts in my duties at work for the department. To be able to single order shirts at the price they make them available is unheard of. That being said, my opinion (which is know is like an asshole) is that they are more than entitled to have "rights" to any logo they help develop and agree to print in the name of the WIHTF.  Not "butt-hurt," just reality of the given situation.

Anyway... My intention was to begin the discussion about a possible logo since I'm ashamed to see that Arkansas and Florida have beat us to it, AlsoI know we can come up with something better than some of the other logos. My vision was the crazed badger crawling out of the middle of a BFL, perhaps with the rest of the BFL filled in the background with the Wisconsin state flag logos. Maybe crossed AR15's in the background?

Spawn will be around soon to help out as well, and then we'll really get some action rolling in this thread.

I like the bolt face logo on the Wisconsin flag myself. Looks great!
Link Posted: 5/21/2011 8:06:04 AM EDT
I like PFC Kramer's and the BFL with Angry Badger.  I'm not a fan of wearing the colors unless it's a complete flag, not that I find it disrespectful, just really redneck.  Too many of those designs are really busy, and won't be comfortable to wear with huge vinyl graphics on them (even the Arfcom BFL shirts need to be broken in with Scotchbrite to look okay).  If you can, work the shirt material into the design by using outlines only or something, IMHO.

I like where this is headed.

I think the badger looks ghey.

How about a silhouette of the state (no flag/colors) with the BFL over it and possibly an AR in there somewhere.

The badger and colors are a little "too busy"...not to mention the badger looks like an angry cat...

Link Posted: 5/21/2011 3:28:57 PM EDT
I know the ones I made so far suck, but they're at least a jumping point. I agree with what's been said so far. When I have time tomorrow I'll do some tweaking.

I like Kramer's too. If we do choose one of the busier logos, I'd still take one of the simple ones.
(I'd also take one with an AK, but I don't know that i'll find much support there haha)

Badger over state in BFL

I like this one, if your not in you doing understand the hidden meaning

A few more that I came up with. More simple than the other ones.

Don't forget, pretty soon site staff member Spawn will be showing up and taking over the art work. These are just ideas meant to stimulate discussion. We gotta come up with something better than the other states!

I like the top one. Nice and simple. Something along those lines.

Link Posted: 5/22/2011 9:26:17 AM EDT
The logo with the badger coming out of the BFL is good, but the proportions are a bit off.  If you look at the fire dept. logo, which the badger came from, the opening is much larger in proportion to the badgers head.  Maybe scaling the badger head back a bit might give a better overall effect.

I like how the Indiana ones turned out.

How about an outline of Wisconsin inside the bolt face?  I would say use the State flag but it is too busy.

The Indiana design is pretty awesome. I gave it my quick and dirty try to copy it using our flag. I know Spawn can do a much better job.
