LOGO: Man Club

Some kid who works in my office, a real fresh-faced college prep kinda guy, asked me to design a tee shirt for his group of friends, who refer to themselves as “The Man Club.”

Some of the themes this guy – who might be descended from EVERY d-bag villain from 80s high school party movies – wanted are as follows, and I kid you not when I say this is verbatim from his email:

  • Patriotism and military support to the point of Xenophobia
  • Standing up for what you believe in, because you are likely right, because you are awesome
  • Hard work/manual labor requiring extreme feats of strength and skill (includes extreme drinking feats)
  • Being generally extreme in everything you do/enjoying beating other people at everything even if not a competition
  • Other random, miscellaneous, manly stuff

I sent him some drafts and he asked why I didn’t include any sailing elements. I explained that I didn’t realize this kid’s terribleness was actually the terriblest, so I went back and added a ship’s wheel. Here’s a test sheet for colors:The Man ClubI like everything in the middle column, and I’ve got money on these dudes picking the one with the pink wheel.

  1. Hahaha! The Man Club? Are you fucking kidding me?! The pink one looks the best! (And I’m not saying that because I’m a girl – I’m not much of a “pink” girl. Green is my favorite!)

    The Man Club. Fucking hell…
