    I have a project currently assigned for school that i'm not very 'in love' with. I have to design several things for a fireworks company... Here's the thing.. It's pirate themed.

    I know it sounds corny, but I somehow have to pull this off. Currently I have to make 3 different t-shirt designs, and 4 different design for stationary semi trailers. I think my teacher/client wants it to be cliche as possible. I believe concept is key.

    Anyone have any tips or ideas for me? I'm really struggling with this one.

    • a firework on the end of a plank
    • a firework designed as a pirate boat
    • a firework as a parrot on a pirate
    • skull with 2 fireworks as the bones
    loads out there, just think generic pirate and then think what can be changed into a firework or the effect of a firework, remember a firework also has an effect at the end like a sparkler etc

    Peg leg, eye patch, explosives, that could be an interesting combination (before and after on front and back?)

    Try merging a jolly roger symbol with an exploding firework, as a logo.
