Contest Brief
Company Name:
Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster
Slogan:
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.
Our Industry:
Entertainment
Formats Accepted
.EPS only
Top Three Things to Communicate through our Logo:
#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.
Styles that we are interested in:
Emblem

An emblem features the name of the company typically enveloped by a pictorial element or shape. Famous examples include:

Please note that the above brands are in no way, shape, or form associated with LogoTournament. They are cited as examples under Fair Use for the enrichment of the general public's knowledge of the graphic arts.

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.

Hello! Here are some hints for getting the most out of your contest as it progresses:

~~ Rank designs daily -- this will encourage participation.
~~ Rank and re-rank a variety of designs to get a variety of new entries.
~~ Ranking gets your contest noticed! Unless your contest is Private, 1st place entries are posted to the portfolio page: http://logotournament.com/portfolio
~~ Ranking designs daily will also keep your contest from getting cluttered.
~~ The more feedback you provide, the better results you will see.
~~ Designers are not offended by "Not Interested".
~~ Over-use of "Not Interested" discourages participation.
~~ Ranking is a non-monetary means of showing appreciation for the Designers' hard work.
~~ Designers earn points for ranked designs. We like to earn points.
