The DG logo has gone through at least two iterations. The original was just the company name in a quirky font. This is also the one used in the Demon Hunters: Comedy of Terrors RPG as well as the website. Another logo with a skull and the name Dead Gentlemen under it exists, although it’s more suitable for web comics and comic book publishing than a broader company logo for multimedia like film, games, and more. Included are our previous logos. We are unclear if a skull is the right direction. It seems a bit easy to go to, and there are A LOT of skull logos out there. Not sure how to stand out. Additionally we're open to hat ideas, like a bowler or top hat, but we'd like to steer away from the fedora or trilby.
Places the logo will be used in the following locations:
• DVD/Bluray covers
• FaceBook Page
• On screen as a title card in our productions
• As a watermark on youtube
• On published materials like RPG books, modules, comics, etc
We are still deciding on a company slogan, but I've attached a marketing document we've begun exploring.
