FSM Emblem Contest entry idea

Postby Almighty Doer of Stuff on Mon Jan 17, 2011 2:01 pm

So, if you've checked the main page recently, you'll see that Bobby is running an FSM emblem design contest for printing on FSM merchandise, preferring some sort of badge-type logo. I have an idea for such an emblem, but alas I lack any sort of vector-editing skill, nor do I have time.

So, would anyone with actual vector-editing skill like to help me create this emblem, and we could submit it together? I can do a mock-up of the design in a raster editor if it helps. The prize for the winning entry is $375, I believe, although how it would be split up can be discussed (I understand that designing the emblem is the easy part, and actually creating it is the bulk of the work). I'd really just like to see this idea come to fruition.

So what is the idea? I don't want to say too much in case someone decides to just steal it and submit it as their own, but I will say that most of it is simplex in design, except for possibly the visage of a pirate in the middle.

Would anyone like to help me with this? I know we have some graphically-inclined people around here. The file has to be in EPS format, by the way.

Autodesk AutoCAD LT gives you a thirty day trial, and it creates .EPS files.

I don't understand the need for this, we already have the wonderful Pirate Fish emblem and the FSM Touching Adam ident.

Have you had any ideas Almighty?

Eh, life kind of got in the way. The one that won was pretty cool anyway.

My idea was a large meatball, with eight strands of spaghetti (one for each IRRYD) surrounding it in a circle (with the ends in different spots for variety). Three of the strands would spell out "FSM" across the top, and some other strands would spell "http://www.venganza.org" across the bottom. There would be a splash of tomato sauce behind the whole thing and amidst the spaghetti strands. In front of the meatball, toward the bottom, would be two linguini banners, the top one saying "The Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster" and the bottom one saying "World's Tastiest Religion". In front of the meatball but behind the banners would be a pirate.

Maybe too complicated anyway.
