FUNKER530 started as a YouTube channel with military combat footage, filmed and submitted by veterans.
Over the past 7 years it has become the largest veteran community on Facebook with 1.1MM followers and 1MM subscribers on YouTube. Funker530.com receives about 10MM page views a month.
FUNKER530.com publishes short combat footage blogs, military news articles, and military humor, targeted towards a veteran audience.
The image we portray is gritty and raw, showing war from a first person perspective while being inclusive and respectful to everyone interested in the military community.
Our followers primarily consist of military veterans from around the world, family members of military members, and civilians who are just interested in the military. We would like our logo to appeal primarily to those who are combat veterans.
A key point about the logo is that it should portray the brand as being gritty, but not cartoonish, or overly hardcore and cheesy. The community is also international, so flags from a specific nation are a no-go.
