PostPosted: Thu May 27, 2010 6:32 pm    Post subject: Stickers! Stickers! Stickers!  Reply with quote

So about two years ago I offered to develop an Ice Pirates logo for Taco (I was a graphic designer in my distant youth).  Two years went by without much happening, when suddenly a month ago I experienced a burst of creative vigor and started grinding out designs based loosely on a Jolly Roger figure with ice tools.

Style II: white tools, black background

Once I discovered the term "Ice Pirates" is closely associated in the hivemind with a cheesy scifi movie from that distant time when I was a graphic designer, I thought to myself, "This will not do," and settled on a Teutonic replacement that has a more Alpine ring to it: Eispiraten.

Style II: white tools, black background, red text

There's a website and everything (click it and see what happens).

I know Taco is thinking about turning this forum into some kind of more general site for SoCal mountaineering, and should that effort move  further along there is already a domain (several, in fact) up and waiting.  But in the meantime, we have STICKERS!

stickers

So anyone who sends me a street address will receive all the stickers he or she can eat, free of charge.

Now, I would never, ever suggest that people liberally plaster these stickers on public or private property without authorization; that would be vandalism.  But what I personally often do with stickers is leave stacks of them in bars and coffee houses.  By chance, they magically find their own way onto nearby walls, street signs, windows, etc.  Handing them out to schoolchildren works wonders, as well.

So send your mailing address to stickers@badharvest.net .

Variations on the final design, as well as abortive gropings towards perfection, can be see at this link.

Stickers are cheap.  The can be given away by the hundreds.  Tee-shirts, on the other hand, cost real money.  So do embroidered patches.  If there is enough interest and firm commitment, I can get shirts made.  But a minimum order is 124 shirts.

In my business, we hand out logo stickers at every opportunity.  One is included in every product package, for example.  Tracie got a few with the Eispiraten stickers.

My office is here in the barrio, and every few weeks these two little Mexican kids, maybe 10 years old, come round begging for stickers.  We give them all they want.  I suspect they take them to school and sell them to the other kids.  Very enterprising; they will go far.

During the last two weeks they have been back TWICE because now I give them Eispiraten stickers too.  They are into the skulls.

I don't give them Bad Harvest stickers because that site is not appropriate for children.

Nice!

We need some non-skull ones. Skulls are all hip and shit these days with the dang hipster kids and their silly hats and no-bathing and whatnot.

I know, nice to say this now, since I kinda drew the design up initially and whatnot. Mebbe we can have some SGMDF one that's kinda basic?

"SGMDF: Bigass Ham"

Dudes and dudettes:

We might bring a lot more traffic to this site by taking Eispiraten stickers on climbs and leaving piles of them in summit registers.

Just an idea.

Taco likes things that are off the the wall - Thus the TACO Del Rio (it's a taco stand by his house)

Bad Ass Ham is something David Letterman used to remark about when someone would "win" something - I see you "won a Bad Ass Ham" something like that - check "You Tube" it might be on there. Question  Idea  Shocked  Very Happy

Fritz and I had a lot of time to chat on our way up to Lone Pine last week.  He agreed with many of you that the California Republik sticker was an awesome design.  Unfortunately, I am out of them.  So a new run is in order.

I'd like to mix up a lot of designs on one run.  We are considering the following (blue are new):

o California Republik
o US flag
o Canada
o Japanese Naval ensign
o A German design, either the current flag or the Prussian flag, or maybe the Bavarian flag (there are mountains in Bavaria; beer as well)
o USSR flag
o Union Jack
o French flag
o Austrian flag
o English (Cross of St George)?
o Scottish (Cross of St Andrew)?
o Dual-use Mexican/Italian flag
o Taegeukgi flag

(that covers all the damned national flags, I think)

o A "This is my ice axe" design
o A new "Big-ass Ham" design featuring this guy:

That, and the USSR one would be great, hammer and sickle, but maybe with the hammer as a straight-shaft ice tool and the sickle as something else like a quickdraw/alpine draw or something.

It just occurred to me that a Korean flag design might be popular with a certain element commonly found in our local mountains.

Not so crazy about the Soviet one, but it does share the gold color with the German one.

Dunno.  I kind of like the Soviet one.

Wonder how Koreans would feel about the Korean one.
