What We Do

The Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster is the world's fastest growing religion. Our followers, Pastafarians, believe that the Almighty FSM created the universe and continues to influence events but does so in such a way that he leaves no evidence of His involvement - such is the power of His Noodly Appendage. Skeptics say we are only parodying mainstream religion and that we have no legitimate claims of our own. They are wrong. We declare our legitimacy to the world loud and clear, and in the tradition of legitimate religion we will be exempt from taxes. Also, every Friday is a religious holiday which will be celebrated with beer.

Top Three Things to Communicate

#1 - Legitimacy - that we are indeed a real religion.
#2 - Friendliness - we are an welcoming, positive organization, respectful of others.
#3 - Humble - we do not take ourselves too seriously. Religion does not need to be so divisive.

Our Target Audience:

Members of the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster.

College educated, progressive, liberal-minded. Many have come from atheist or agnostic world-views.

Many are young, in school or college.

For all, there is a sense of fun about this. That is, we do not take ourselves too seriously.

Color Preferences

I am open to any color scheme.

Our Ideas and Additional Information:

There is an assortment of Flying Spaghetti Monster artwork scattered across the FSM website (www.venganza.org). As for thematic components of the logo, besides the FSM Himself, other possibilities include pirates and the beer volcano, as well as the pirate-fish.

I intend for this logo to be used primarily on a t-shirt. I'm fond of the Emblem badge style. I was impressed by the winning entry for the California Vagina Sailors design contest that was on LogoTournament some time ago. The logo can be seen here: http://californiavaginasailors.com/

I am very open minded about the logo, but most important to me is that it must look good on a shirt and appeal to a wide number of Pastafarians.

Key phrases that might find a place in your design:

"Touched by His Noodly Appendage"
"Pastafarian"
"Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster"

On a personal note, I intend to use sales of this shirt to raise funds towards the Church of FSM Pirate Ship - a place of worship that will be open to anyone who wishes to join us in Spreading the Word of the FSM to those not yet enlightened. This is my dream. So my designer friends, please draw well and true. May you be Touched by His Noodly Appendage.
