About the “Honey Badger Doesn’t Need a Wingman” Funny Graphic Design
Sometimes inspiration hits at a weird time. Spinning of of the immediate success of the Honey Badger Doesn’t Care WARNING label design, a lead FGT-S designer woke of in the middle of the night with the image of this new 80’s aviator style graphic. Elements were again drawn by hand in Illustrator using the pen tool while staring at various visual references. “Bee hive” colors were settled on for the overall look and feel of the design (yellow browns). The honey badger had 80’s style aviator glasses added by drawing in illustrator, using gradients for depth and strokes for the fine metal edges. Gradients play a big role in the depth of the design but final 3D touches were added in Photoshop in the form of drop shadows and some embossing. Many layers were utilized as other shapes and shadows were hand drawn with the brush tool and fine tuned with the eraser at various opacities. The multi-level drop shadows give it a little more realistic look.
