Hi there! My husband and I need a new logo for our arms business. I believe I need this to be hand drawn by a graphic artist.
Business Name: AK Arms Club
Slogan: Smoke Em If You Got Em
A skull wearing fireman’s helmet (my husband is also a fireman!) with 2 Smith & Wesson Model 29 6 inch barrel pistols. A western/outlaw/cowboy vibe, probably incorporated by the font
Skull - I don’t have any particular direction for the skull. I kind of like the eyes to look a little mean, but not completely necessary. Feel free to use creative judgment here!
Guns - It is important these are detailed in their drawings. I don’t like the guns crossing over each other to form an X, however I am open to them being in other positions as long as there are 2. I kind of like the image in my attachment of them forming pointing upward forming a V underneath the skull. It seems to give it a cool shield-like feel and I like that. Or I also could possibly like them pointing upwards and out kind of in a wing like concept.
Helmet - You can use this link for inspiration on the helmet. I want to focus on the flying eagle on the top of we can. I just think that is cool! On the front part where the plate is, I want it to have AK in it where you would normally see the station # and/or city of the department. One other super important thing about this - I want to be able to pull the AK off the helmet to use as a secondary logo. For example, if I was making a T-Shirt I could put the entire helmeted skull with guns on the back, and have the AK put on the front pocket.

Banner - I would like to incorporate a banner some how. I think it would be cool to have the Smoke Em If You Got Em on this maybe. I like the front facing skull, but I attached a photo of another skull using this slogan on a banner for reference. I imagine the name going above the skull and helmet not in a banner, and maybe a banner underneath with the slogan like one of the photos shows.
Additional Elements to use if you need them, but not necessary - Smoke, Fire
1 or 2 color logo
The attachments are general inspiration, but I have more if necessary.
