Halie Hippopotamus

Describe your company and organization and target audience

This is more of a personal logo for someone who loves hippos and pot. The pun hippoPOTamus should be highlighted with a hippo smoking a joint, and maybe emphasis on the pot in hippopotamus.

The design should have the following

A cute / cool hippo smoking a joint, lots of pink and purple, somehow emphasize the pun here because that's the fun lol. We don't need a full body of a hippo, could be just a head. If we have a full body, could it wear a pink fuzzy coat? Like a shown in the hippo3 pic. I'm basically trying to embody the person in that pic, in hippo form. *update: if the hippo is going to wear glasses, can you try a rectangle shape of sunglasses like the image glassesforhippo pic?

This logo will be used for

  • Print (business cards, letterheads, brochures etc.)
  • Merchandise (mugs, t-shirts etc.)

This design should not have this in the entries

Looking for a cool hippo, can be more cartoon than realistic but don't want it to look straight out of a childrens book.

Colors to use in the design

Pink, purple, black
