I am sure it was unintentional but you get a little more sensitized when you live in an area with plenty of gang and biker activity.

I'm sure this won't win Path Design of the Year, but for those of us who like simplicity and don't want the original ZS logo changed, there's this:

Trollin' until permission is granted.

I'm sketching a more complex one, but I thought I'd toss this out there to see if anybody cared about the whole official ZS logo being on the patch.

Much better than I can do! I stated up front artist? Not me. Once I get permission I will roll with it. Thank you for saving me tons of embarrassment.

Set up a poll, you can change your mind. It is open for 5 days. Rock the vote if you will.

Part of me really wants to see a snarky take on the patch... "DISQUALIFIED FOR DEATH" or something alluding to that little nuance of ZE Bugout culture. :lol:

Not another damned patch..... :mrgreen: I was guilty of designing the last one.
I love the idea, and I would expand on it but I've had a few too many beers to fire up the old artist in me.

Perhaps I shall sit this one out.

I say the more ideas the merrier, we're just trying to get a quick decision on this to get it moving more quickly this time around. I like the ideas we've seen so far but i'm about as artistically inclined as a rotten stump so I don't have much to offer other than liking other people's ideas.

Definitely try to include, "Death Results in Instant Disqualification." If it'll fit. Or maybe, "Death=Disqualification."

Everybody knows that you don't need copyright permission to design a patch, right? You only need permission to mass produce and/or profit from it

I have to agree...if "Death = Disqualification" can be made to fit, it definately needs to be included! It fits the theme too perfectly! :D

Or maybe "No pulse? No patch!"

The Squad has spoken! Looks like slant ZS stylized. I appreciate any help that I can get. As far as I am concerned discussions of patch style are complete and now it is time to put energy into developing one that will be in the awesomest Maximus genre of patches!

Since the last patch had a Latin phrase (cue Masterpiece Theatre soundtrack) how about considering: Mors par incapacitas.

I'm probably a bit off, but that should be a close translation to: Death equals disqualification.

Tried to come up with something short to fit on a patch. Anyway, thought I'd toss that out there.

I'm up for anything. For Latin I like hiems adpropinquat, or "winter is coming" for all those Game of Thrones fans. Obvious double meaning for the prepper mindset/ literal for the fall patch.

Boondock-
Ahh, the clinking of scotch glasses..... (salutations good sir)
I do dig the idea of using latin on the patches, as it adds a bit of mystery and intrigue.
I'd like to have some more angles on that, indeed.

No thunder to steal, I stated up front that I have no skills in this area. I was just trying to do my best to step up. I would be indebted to you for your help.

Thank you again,

Still no word as to usage of logo. I will have to start working on an alternate next week.

For an alternate just thinking same patch minus "ZS" eyes, stylized evil-ish eyes, and just have to use lettering without ZS ties like "Fall MBO 2012" "Death Before Disqualification" "Fall Fun While You're On the Run!" Some nice Latin... Yeah, you get the idea.

ETA: we are set on evil-ish jack 'o' lantern. Get any phrases out there that you think should be voted on and I will reset the poll if I am able for a new question being posed to the squad.

Scrubbing the posts I have found these, any ommisions on my part is unintentional, I am an imperfect meat puppet.

Success or Death
Disqualified for Death
Death Results in Disqualification
No Pulse, No Patch
Mars Par Incapacitas (Death equals Disqualification)

I am assuming that "Fall MBO 2012" is pretty much good to go, but just in case I am wrong chime in.
