My fav photo of Ho-Z
I tried to draw it, didn't turn out that great but I spent like 45 mins on it, so...eh.
Yesterday was Ho-Z's birthday and he is 21. Man, he does alot for a 21 year old; working on his bachelors, marketing his own design company, creating music...and helping to co-write Wheels of Steel. I told him now he can go out and buy himself a beer (knowing that he doesn't drink. Like Jason, alcohol would interact badly with is functions), and he said that in Norway you can buy beer at 18, but at 21 now he can go out and get some real liquor. He told me that his Mom offered to drive him to the liquor store so that he could buy himself some 'real' liquor and I about rolled on the floor. That sounds like something I'd do on my son's 21st birthday...except that kid probably has a fake ID and has been doing that already.
Well Ho-Z and I got into a big discussion about his logo. You've seen it if you go to his site, it is the upside down wheelchair, and then the words Ho-Z designs. I told him that I wanted to buy the t-shirt when he had it available and he informed me that he wasn't sure about having a t-shirt with such a huge logo. I'm like...what??? Um...isn't the purpose of the t-shirt to promote your design company, and isn't the logo cool looking...and why???
He brought up a good point. Some people who are design artists think that t-shirts with huge logos are overdone. Also, if people wore Ho-Z's t-shirts would they be wearing it for the purpose of promoting the design company, or because the upside-down wheelchair is cool looking. My answer is both. But alas, there has been some discussion on his team about not using that huge logo, and perhaps a slogan such as; are you a fan or part of the fam?
So I told him that I would pose the question here. Huge Logo, or Slogan? T-shirt as a work of art or as a marketing tool?
Now to my next question. How tired of WOS are you? I'm down to the last 1/4 of the story...which still means that there is pretty much more to write. Ho-Z is concerned that people are getting tired of it, or may get tired of it should it go on much longer. Feedback is a great thing. Tell me what you think.
