Cheshire Cat flag colour edit…

Published November 29, 2011 by madprideflagdesigncampaign

I later noticed that the colours for the first version of this flag were incorrect, as the picture of the Disney Cheshire Cat I took them from was of the wrong hues.  So, here’s another take on the colours.  (I will probably also have at least one other version, with a different expression from the Cat itself.)

Inspired by the Cheshire Cat…

Published November 29, 2011 by madprideflagdesigncampaign

That last entry had me thinking that the Cheshire Cat might not be the worst idea for a design.  I was inspired by the stripes on the Cat’s body (from Disney’s ‘Alice in Wonderland’, the original) and made a Pride-style flag with them.  Then, I Photoshopped the grin, eyes, and nose of the cat into the corner.  (Perhaps this is not the best capture of the Cat’s expression?)  Anyway, this is a much more playful idea for a Mad Pride flag than my previous efforts.  What do you think?

(I don’t think this would lead to any copyright issues with Disney, if it’s used in this context.  The other consideration I had was adding a Louis Wain-style cat instead.)

New flag design, sent in by Katherine…

Published November 29, 2011 by madprideflagdesigncampaign

Hello – and sorry for the delay between the updates!

This flag design was sent in by Katherine, and is called “Synaptic Kitty”.  (Funny, one idea that kept coming to my mind was incorporating the Cheshire Cat’s smile somehow!)

Please continue to submit your designs to this blog.  I will try to update this regularly with new designs and information.

Wundernutbar is somewhat of a partner-in-crime of mine, and was the first to get involved in this idea with me.  Please have a look at this post he made regarding this campaign:

A new symbol design…

Published November 16, 2011 by madprideflagdesigncampaign

I designed this symbol while at work the other day, and created it in Photoshop / Illustrator today.  Perhaps it’s something to consider?  (It’s depicting a person standing up for his/her human rights.)

Thank you, BTW, to everyone who has become involved so far!  Very interesting / creative ideas!

Another idea for a colour spectrum…

Published November 16, 2011 by madprideflagdesigncampaign

Not everyone is keen on the yellows.  Here’s another colour spectrum possibility.  Here, the colours represent highs, lows and everything in-between.  (The one thing I think the flag should definitely have is the horizontal stripes design, which immediately brings to mind the idea of a Pride community flag.)
