Some friends and I were part of a dragonboat race here in Ulsan, South Korea. We decided we were going to have matching t-shirts made with a logo representing our team, however that plan fell through and we just ended up dressing up in funky clothing. Still, I was asked to create a “mascot”, and this is what came out of a brainstorming session.
Ulsan is renowned not just for being the birthplace of Hyundai, but also for once being a thriving whale hunting town. That’s all over now, but they still hang tight to their whale mascots. As for the “waaagh”… well, it’s a long story, but the guy who mentioned it would be a great team motto is a mad Warhammer fan. Yes, the now-defunct MMORPG.
