Trademark Application Details
Trademark Logo MEKONNEN EPIC

The mark consists of the head of the character Mekonnen followed by the word logo MEKONNEN EPIC. This logo submission is in black and white. The drawing of the head represents a young Ethiopian man with a large Afro-hairstyle with a black outline and two shades of a gray color. The outer layer is a medium gray and the inner layer is a darker gray. The facial features of the drawing has a triangular-shaped face with a rather broad forehead and normals down to a pointy chin. He has large eyes under furrowed eyebrows that give him a serious expression on his face. His nose is shaped like an arrow pointing downwards and his lips about the same width as his nose. There is a slight mustache between his nose and lips, and small stubble of beard on his chin. The word logo MEKONNEN EPIC uses the font style Sylph with thick black outline and white fill color. The first letter "M" and the "E" in EPIC are larger than the rest of the letters in the words at 86 point size for both. The letter "M" measures at 1-inch width by 0.9 height and the "E" is 0.74 inches width by 0.9 height. The rest of the letters EKONNEN and PIC are at 63 points size. The letter "K" has been adjusted from the original Sylph font design which top right portion was more curved and made it look like the letter "R". I adjusted the top right portion so its straighten out to look more like a "K". This logo and parts of it will be used in my book publications, novels, graphic novels, and comic book series. The logo and drawing design will also be printed on merchandise like t-shirts, mugs, posters, calendars, and more. In total, the complete logo drawing with the word logo together measures at 9.2 inches width by 1.4 inches height.
