You hear stories all the time about how businesses are formed out of a dorm room or a garage and this backyard story is no different. One summer afternoon between Sharknado 2 and the launch of the last Celebrity Apprentice, and while discussing marketing and business strategies I asked the question " What makes a great brand?' My future partner Mitch Felton said " it's something that distinguishes yourself from others. Something brand-able, recognizable, and marketable."
After a few brand-able concepts were "thrown under the bus" I came up with the idea of a chainsaw. After all, I have been having fun sawing my way through some fish over the last few years. After thinking up new brand-able chainsaw merchandising opportunities, including clothing, he said "Come back with a concept for a chainsaw logo."
Sure enough, a few weeks later, I called him back with the idea of a pirates flag logo with crossing chainsaws. Within a couple of days Mitch sent me a series of beautiful logo designs and our company was born.
