UPDATE (Nov 1st 2016): went with a ‘less-is-more’ approach for this design. The old logo had the stair car itself, which, let’s face it, was too busy/ugly to look at. There are two older designs for the Stair Car and Banana Stand as well.
This is a long overdue design, I just couldn’t arrive at an idea until very recently. A few folks requested an Initech-themed design, but the company logo and colors bored me to tears (probably the design’s intention). So I decided to make Milton’s red Swingline stapler the core theme. Hope you like it.
In the wake of Netflix signing Adam Sandler to a 5-picture deal, my first thought was they should’ve signed Mike Judge instead! Judge makes terrific low-budget comedies that never seem to fit with the traditional studio model, and Netflix would be a perfect home for his films. Hard to believe it’s been 7 years since his last film. Read the rest of this entry
About 3 years ago I posted a Dread Pirates design, which I since deleted because I felt it was too plain and simple. Thought I’d give it another go, this time with an injection of color and new patch logos for both the ship and the mantra belonging to these Pirates.
Thought I’d do a design that is a homage to the original Donkey Kong arcade cabinet from 1981 (35 years ago!). All of the logos are updated versions of art found on the cabinet. Donkey Kong himself is a mix of the current Kong with the 1981 original and the 1982 Donkey Kong Jr. version (the teeth mostly). There’s a “DK” on the front neck too, to match his necktie.
Ideally I’d go overboard with stripes and colors to match the arcade cabinet, but I like to keep Geeky Jerseys’ production methods in mind when creating designs. That means a more conventional approach towards layout and trying to limit the number of colors.
Not sure if this is going to be popular enough to be offered, but I enjoyed drawing it up.
UPDATE: I’m my own worst critic, so I heavily updated the above jersey. Why so much black? So BB-8 and the text DROIDS could register better. Original post as follows:
When I saw episode VII in December, I was 99.9% sure this little droid was flipping the bird with his lighter-thingy. In my theater the whole audience roared with laughter, plus the scene totally called for it — BB-8 was coerced into doing something he didn’t want to do.
Alas, Disney has made it official: the droid was merely returning a thumbs-up. Well, in my mind BB-8 will always be the badass robot who’s not taking any of your crap, mister.
Not available for now, this design will be. Cloudy the future is. Read the rest of this entry
New Captain and Shellhead designs, just in time for my most-anticipated film of the year. Captain gets a few new additions: the star and numbers are now lined with silver; two all-new patches that celebrate his team and teammates; and lastly blue stripes have been added to the cuffs. The main blue is also darker. Read the rest of this entry
