Very pretty. I like the colors very much. The type works well with the graphic.

Sweet as a button, love the colours and transparencies

jayred said on Jul. 14 '08

No Clash, it's not just you. Both the E and the A don't look as extended as the rest of the type, and the A definitely looks thinner as well.

Very nice logo Linda.

i'm liking the colors and the logo, but the type seems too squeezed vertically, so it takes a little longer to process.

This is one of (if not THE BEST) logo I've ever seen. I loved it so much I duplicated it at home.

Now remember when working with transparencies that the background colour dictates the overall look of the logo, in this case we are using dark grey.

Basically a cube is hexagon turned on its side (without lines in the middle of the shape), so to start you need 4 hexagons.

Merge the hexagons to form the overall diamond shape. Now set the base colours of each hexagon / cube & use a 72% transparency. Now you will notice the overlapping of the hexagons give the illusion that you have 4 cubes! (the edges of each hexagon double as the middle lines for each cube.)

Create a white diamond for the base. (use the extrude & Bevel effect in Adobe Illustrator to give the white diamond just a little height & Expand Apparence)
Duplicate the white diamond slab underneath the first - 3 times & turn those 3 diamond slabs black. (group or merge them to make working easier)

Now you just have to duplicate & mirror the hexagons / cubes underneath the black diamond slab, then set the transparency to 60 so it looks like a reflection.

You will end up with a near perfect replica, most will not be able to tell the difference. Though for the life of me I cannot get the same vibrancy in the right most corner of the green hexagon without disturbing the colours near the centre. I suspect he used a white shape to the back of the green hexagon on that side alone to increase the vibrancy? Who knows :p He got me there. :D

@demiphonic: You could've spared us your long, pointless tutorial. Oh, and "he" is actually a "she"!

The best logo you've ever seen and the oddest post I've ever seen.

Why in the world would I want to build a near perfect replica of this? and even if I did, I could simply look at it and and do it. It's not brain surgery.

P.S. if you punch all the shapes and actually use cmyk/rgb build variants at 100% opacity it takes the transparency, and therefore the background color, out of play making it much more versatile.

He must hang out with TheArtist ;-]

demiphonic said on Sep. 20 '08

hey no need to be mean guys. I just like the logo.. & enjoyed replicating it. It helped me become better in designing. I just thought someone else could try it out like I did. (hence the basic tutorial)

guess I was wrong. Have a nice day all.

sdijock said on Sep. 22 '08

demi - looking forward to your tutorial on the AT&T globe logo...

demiphonic said on Sep. 22 '08

hahaha quit joshin me. lol

I like that one too actually. The updated design is new & fresh yet still retains the overall look of the old one :p great design. :)

Mason Roberts said on Jul. 24 '09

Not 100% on the A there, looks out of place width wise... Keep on chuggin! :)
