    Inspired by the classic CCR song, "Bad Moon Rising."
    Published:
The "Bad Moon" concept comes from the classic Credence Clearwater Revival song.
 
"I see a bad moon arising.
I see trouble on the way.
I see earthquakes and lightning.
I see bad times today."
 
In the CCR song, the "bad moon" is sort of a nondescript omen of eminent, ill, fate, but I started thinking about it as an emblem. What if the real protagonist of the song isn't John Fogerty? What if it's the moon?
 
I've played around with this concept for a while, and I hope to eventually design and produce some military-style morale patches with it, and maybe a host of other merchandise. I guess we'll see where it goes. Check back, and follow me on Facebook for updates.
 
I've been reworking the design a little. I wanted to make something that translates well as a two-color image for print, decals or patches, etc.
Two-color test against a photo background. BadMoon is likely to develop as a tactical or firearms-related brand, so my AR15 seemed like a reasonable backdrop.
The original concept piece for BadMoon. Built entirely in Adobe Illustrator.
I'd been playing Forza Horizon and rebuilt my BadMoon emblem for my cars there. I ended up playing around with a lot of additional shapes there, so I decided to play around with some of those concepts in Photoshop. This was the result, but I plan to rework this design again soon.
