You know who doesn't have a strong Marketing department? Animals, that's who. Sure, we get plenty of "Save the ____" type stuff, but I'm talking about BRANDING. The kind of message that says, "I identify with that manatee, and I'm willing to be a walking advertisement for it." This week, give us your best slogans to sell people on animals. The more misunderstood the animal, the better.

  • No text only designs. You have to at least have a representation of your animal.
  • Real animals only. No koopas, Bugs Bunny, dragons, and DEFINITELY NO PHOENIXES.
  • No Royal Blue or Slate tees. Not until Zeke gets back with the truck.
  • Original designs only. No "hilarious" pop culture riffs.

When I initially saw the derby, I hoped that there would be a "no cats" rule.

I'll get to it.

Two ideas brewing, and my plan is to make them simple enough to be able to do both. We'll see how that goes.

rejected alternate slogans:

1. Just because they're proud about their heritage doesn't mean they're racist.

2. Better than those "other" sharks.

3. Better than Good White Sharks.

Just a quick doodle at the moment, but I think I rather like this little guy. Lets see if I can actually get around to finishing another tshirt design for a derby rather than only getting halfway through it...

Fellow wooters, I need some help. I'm doing an entry about Lemmings and their tendency toward accidental suicide off cliffs. But I'm not sure of a good slogan.

Here's what I've got:

"Cliff diving is an art"
"Save us from ourselves"
"We love to leap (to our doom)"
"We only cliff dive by accident"

But I'm not sold on any of them, except for "Save us from ourselves"

Anyone have any ideas?

EDIT: I'm also thinking of "Don't look before you leap"

I like the line about rejecting gravity.

Some derbies make me wish I could draw... I'd love to do something with spiders, with a tag line like "8 arms means more hugging"...

'No "hilarious" pop culture riffs.'

So does this mean the IKEA monkey is off-limits?

No "hilarious" pop culture riffs.

How about bad pop culture riffs?

Lemmings dressed as Congressmen jumping off the fiscal cliff.

I don't know.

Actually if you put both goats on one shirt, you need their beards to be hanging in different directions.

I don't know.

Not sure I get it, but I like the drawing. Like elephants never forget, even after death? Or like an elephant 9/11? You could do better on the font. Hand lettering?

BTW, took me the better part of a year to get printed.

Except that as a Mythbusters reference, it probably trips the "no pop culture riffs" rule, unfortunately.

Hmmmm... didn't really see the 9/11 connection till you said it...

Wonder if I should drop the idea.

I was just playing off of the elephant graveyard idea and combining it with the elephants never forget thing. If it seems more like this is a place an elephant massacre occurred, I did it wrong perhaps.

and yeah... font is GONE.

I've thought about dinosaurs a lot this week with all the Apocalypse jokes and the Death Star being run by dinosaurs to take us all out with their zombie Storm Troopers. But then they sorta did Dinosaurs in space on Dr. Who, righto?

I thought it was Wooly Mammoth. I like it, but I don't think it really promotes elephants as much as mourns them. I could see it for a future derby though!

Perhaps some little animal in the corner looking mournfully on. An elephant would be obvious choice but to big to fit. I would've suggested a mouse, but then that might suggest 'massacre' even more lol! Oh yeah you know already but font is horrible.
