The Blogosphere’s New Retro Set – Idea Bat Around

If you read my post from yesterday and you came back today, I want to thank you!  That means you want in on this idea of mine, as half baked as it is.  We need to come up with a fictional product and brand name.  Of course I feel like the best way to do this is to do a blog bat around and get everyone’s ideas.  Yup we’re talking homework here.

Since this is a retro set and sports cards are geared towards males.  I’m thinking the product has to be male oriented and in my opinion needs to be something that doesn’t exist any more (for instance male garter socks, or maybe some sort of weird tonic medicine). I’m good with using tobacco or candy but it should be something that by today’s standards seems outrageous.  See below for an example:

CONNORS BRIGHTON 01273 486851 COLLECT PICTURE As Britain’s advertising watchdog has received almost 100 complaints that a Channel 4 ad campaign for hit documentary Big Fat Gypsy Weddings  is offensive and racist. A look at old adverts show nothing has changed over the years. Cocaine Toothache Drops



Here are your marching orders if you want in:

  1. Come up with a product.
  2. Come up with a company name.
  3. Create some kind of logo.

Many of you might not have photoshop and that’s ok, I myself use GIMP which is damn good! Plus there are a ton of tutorials out there on how to use it.  Let’s let this roll to the weekend and then as you make posts with your ideas, post a link to it in my comment section of reply to my tweet.  Next week, I will set up a poll so everyone can vote. Then we can move on from there.  Also please retweet this as much as possible to get maximum exposure / participation.
