opinions needed

Which logo looks best?

#1



#2 (cigar will be added)

Just thinking about what will work best on shirts and a banner and how flexible I can be on shirt color.

I like the gold. Is the pit maker paying you to advertise his name? If not I would leave it out. IMHO

Nice!

The lettering is more legible on the gold background from afar.

Kevin,

I like the gold sign, add the cigar, white shirt, and add a big University of Michigan "M" on the beer mug

Since you like Terrel Owens and the Cowboys, I'd go for Blue... They both look great!

Darn, I like the way the colors look with the blue, but the gold is much more legible. Maybe some contrasting color in the BBQ Society lettering? Red?

Whole thing is based on "you can dress them up but can't take them anywhere" theme. Kind of a high society bubba. You can take him there but that doesn't mean he's high society. Drinking beer, smoking cigars, open zipper, extended pinky like he's drinking tea in "society".

I'm concerned about that. It will look good on a banner but what about a black t-shirt. White gets too dirty at a contest. I have Patrick trying a few other color combos just in case there is something else that works better. I'm leaning towards yellow even though the Cowboy's colors are true to my heart. White shirt too John. [smilie=a_whyme.gif]

I'd go with Bryan's advice. He seems know what he's talking about.
