My brand is Puddle Pirate. I know what you're thinking, "Oh great, more anchor designs".. Oh contraire mon frere. The reason behind this brand is because it is inspired by, and designed for the Guardians of the Sea; The Coast Guard (which I am a proud Veteran). The reason behind me creating this brand is because there are no website with quality Coast Guard shirts anywhere and there is such a proud culture of veterans and active duty. I want to encompass a vintage look & feel, to celebrate the long history of how the Coast Guard came into fruition. Similar to CXXVI.net but not exclusively hand drawn. I'd Like for the design I make in this class to be hand drawn however. So no anchors exclusively, but they may rear their ugly head in a design or two due to the Nautical taste.
This is Joe Coastie , a sub mark I've been playing around with to subtlely make his way into the brand. Colors are always pending of course.
Douglas Munro is the only Coast Guard member to be award the Congressional Medal of Honor
Semper P stands for "Semper Paratus" which is the Coast Guards Motto... Stands for "Always Ready". And of course "About Face" means turn around in Militaristic (I just made that word up) talk.
Again, these are all concepts, colors are pending and feedback is more than welcome. I want to keep them more typography-based. The Brand is still being developed. I have the trademark and LLC, just playing around to get final concepts to the printers in the next 2 months or so. Thanks for checking out.
