Let’s have a contest! Who wants us to make us a logo? There WILL be prizes. Even before the contest is officially underway, some sweet logos have already started rolling in. That top hat and claws up top is an entry we got from Christopher Ross after I did this post about a potential logo contest. He’s also got that bad boy in different colors… Red/Black, Powder Blue/Yellow, etc. Very cool. Here’s another entry we got from our buddy Jim Sedgwick.
Now look at that again. Now look again. Notice anything unique about it? How ’bout those claws/eyes/tentacles actually spelling out the word “lobshots” – see it? Impressive. Very impressive. Here’s my crappy MS Paint lobster that I based on Caster’s amazing London Lobster .
Don’t get me wrong. I love our Dumb & Dumber banner and all, but it’s not a logo. A logo to complement it (and probably replace it) would be nice. Something classy. And no, I’m not talking about just altering our banner, like Bull Ben has done with this zinger.
You remember SLOBSHOTS. Anyway, I’ve been thinking about a logo for awhile now. I don’t even need the word “LobShots” in the logo. Or do I? Maybe just LS? Maybe just the L? Maybe nothing? A couple years ago, when Showman and I had the idea for the blog… as a joke, I paid $5 here… and got this.
“Thanks for the beer LobShots! I hope you hate your new horrible logo as much as I hated making it” Welp, they nailed it. I hate it. It’s a piece of crap. I want to print it up on a roll of toilet paper and put it to good use.
Point being, we need a freakin’ logo. A good logo can serve as a catalyst into greatness. We want to be great. We don’t have logo skills, we have blog skills. So, let’s have a little contest. Everybody loves a contest. Submit your logos to [email protected] along with your name, and we’ll give ‘em a look. To all the losers… I promise you this… unless there’s nudity or profanity in the logo, I will post a blog will all the submitted logos along with our comments on ‘em. That’s right, you could become famous with a losing logo.
What do you win? There’s probably some technical mumbo jumbo I’m supposed to insert about copyrights or trademarks or something like that about your logo, but I don’t know any of that… what I do know is that once you email us your logo…we’re gonna do whatever the hell we want with it. It’s ours. Prizes? Well lemme tell ya, blogging has it’s perks. The fine folks over at Lacoste, yes, that Lacoste, sent me two bottles of their new men’s cologne because they love Lobshots. I guess they know that I like to rock their polos and like to smell awesome. Because I didn’t want to do you wrong, I gave the cologne a test and it’s wonderful. The scent of irresistible and awesome all rolled into one. I’ll give away the second bottle to the winner.
In addition, I’ll hook you up with one of these LobShots t-shirts, and I’ll turn your logo into a t-shirt and give you one of those as well. Since I love t-shirts and everybody can use more t-shirts, the stallions over at Look At Me Shirts have agreed to let you pick any t-shirt from their website if you win. Hooked up.
I’m gonna leave this contest open until August 31st. We’ll throw some reminder blogs out as the deadline approaches. Get creative. Like I said, even if you don’t win… I’ll post your submission here on the site. Get after it, lobsters. As always, if you need a reminder as to what we’re all about, give this a look-see.
