sexy time. lovely

Muamer said on Oct. 02 '08

Well done man!

Do you believe that I have very similar (but different enough - I think) logo on my HD made before 4-5 years for one music company ?!?!?!? ( I must find some time to upload that >

IDEAS flying around :)

logomotive said on Oct. 02 '08

@Maumer, so funny you mentioned that. 1 week ago a logo project crossed my desk titled "Music Wife" where the client had actually drawn a sketch of this exact concept except the keys where reversed MW. When I saw this it blew me away and THAT is why I am jealous. Patrick this is a classic and you executed the mark beautifully. Well done.

Farmill said on Oct. 03 '08

Stunning!

tilboy said on Oct. 03 '08

well done. I don't have anything else to say.

RBN said on Oct. 03 '08

This logo is really great. It's one of those brilliant ideas that is so simple you are surprised hasn't been snatched up yet.

Hayes Image said on Oct. 03 '08

Awesome on many, many levels!!

raja said on Oct. 03 '08

sweet

apostol said on Oct. 04 '08

Perfect.

nexqunyx said on Oct. 04 '08

Thank you everyone! Your feedback is very much appreciated:)

entz said on Oct. 04 '08

jawsome!!

chng! said on Oct. 04 '08

Brilliant

the critic said on Oct. 05 '08

why all the floats? as this concept has been done several times just search LogoLounge.com website and see... Logo done by these design firms ( Emmi Salonen, TheBeehiveCo.nsulting, MacLaren McCann Calgary, & La Visual) it is nice looking but lets see some logos that are not too similar to others please.

nexqunyx said on Oct. 05 '08

@ the critic: Thanks for your feedback. You know what? This concept came to me while I was actually drawing out ideas with a pencil and paper. I have never (EVER) seen a similar logo in my life. Perhpas there are similar ones out there. So what's your point? I came up with this concept on my own without any outside (websites, books, etc) influences. So as far as I am concerned- it is all 100% original. For someone who has absolutely no formal training is graphic design and no training in AI and other design programs, I guess I'm doing alright. Cheers mate!

jmsilver16 said on Oct. 05 '08

I am a beginner graphic design artist who is having trouble designing a logo. I have seen your work and find it very influential. I want to design a logo for myself but I'm having trouble coming up with any ideas. I would greatly appreciate your advice.

chuck said on Oct. 05 '08

To The Critic:
I have all four LogoLounge books, and I don't recall seeing anything resembling this logo. I clicked on it because it caught my eye, and I thought it was a great solution. The tone of your post smacks of arrogance and a general lack of tact.
Every logo I see on this site resembles logos I've seen elsewhere. Every logo I've done resembles someone else's work, somewhere, somehow. It's the nature of the beast.
Perhaps before you start lecturing others on their similarities to other's work, you should rethink your own avatar with the "speak bubble".

gthobbs said on Oct. 06 '08

@ critic:

You mean something original like maybe...oh...a speech bubble?

darrel said on Oct. 06 '08

Hey, we ALL have speech bubble logos in our portfolio. ;o)

That said, I think the critic is just doing is best at trolling the comments. ;o)

The Critic said on Oct. 06 '08

you may say what you like but all of you think, do, and/or post on other logos that it is similar to others, etc... so don't be a bunch of Hypocrites.

The Critic said on Oct. 06 '08

try getting a subscription to LogoLounge so you may do simple searches.... search "Piano" and you'll see.

onesummer said on Oct. 06 '08

@The Critic,

I know what logos you are referring to. And sure, the concept of designing letters out of piano keys for a company that is related to pianos is not necessarily new, but it certainly does not take away from the fact that the concept is still clever and beautiful in its simplicity. Besides,the concept itself is not why this logo is getting so many floats. nexqunyx executed the concept very well here for this particular client. a concept does not have to be the "only one of its kind" to be good.

@nexqunyx, did you submit this to LogoLounge yet? it would undoubtedly get chosen for one of the books. And when it does, the next time someone posts a 'piano letter' design, The Critic can comment and include you in with the other designs firms that he listed. ;)

Rudy said on Oct. 06 '08

Great Logo. Yes, there are similar concepts but you have composed this one well.

maximalist said on Oct. 06 '08

no comments needed, just great work!

Leo said on Oct. 06 '08

great one

huyendesigner said on Oct. 06 '08

love it very much

grifter730 said on Oct. 07 '08

This is pure brilliance.

jonvic said on Oct. 09 '08

Wow! This is your best work by far! To be honest, when you look at all your logos here, this one doesn't fit in. And by that I mean this one is just brilliant. ;)

Wlosky said on Oct. 09 '08

clever idea & nice font

Farinha said on Oct. 09 '08

weel done. the best relation possible between the piano concept and the "WM"

nexqunyx said on Oct. 09 '08

Thank you all for your feedback:)

nymest said on Oct. 10 '08

WooW.
Very nice!

designabot said on Oct. 11 '08

either way it's just great!

timothyandrew said on Oct. 14 '08

That's beautiful!

nexqunyx said on Oct. 14 '08

thank you:)

Type08 said on Oct. 20 '08

I was browsing through the gallery a bit... Stumbled across this one again... And got me thinking here, at first I was like, wow man, 93 votes, that's really something. Logo went in top 10 floated of all times! That's great, congrats! But then again, this site has 15,303 members, and ONLY 93 (of us) voted for it? ONLY 93 votes? Trying to find the reason, but help me out here please... Why?

hindmarshdesign said on Oct. 20 '08

Very odd indeed.
Far out...I'm working towards the day I can come up with a cracker of a design.

epsilon said on Oct. 20 '08

> Why?

Keep in mind that 15303 is a grand total of everyone _ever registered_. The deadwood can easily account for over 90% (ninety) of the total. Then not everyone who's active is logged in all the time. Then among those who's logged in, not everyone votes. That's your typical social community site "funnel". Lot's of registered, some lurkers, few actives, very few engaged. Nothing out of ordinary.

hindmarshdesign said on Oct. 20 '08

now *that* would be a cracker.

nexqunyx said on Oct. 25 '08

Thanks everyone for all the compliments. Means a lot to me:) Unfortunately this company was dealing with another designer and chose theirs over mine.

This is what they prefered: Wiesinger Music logo

I don't know what to say; I'm shocked. Oh well, I guess I will be keeping this concept in my logo vault and wait to see if I get another client with the same business and the same initials:) LOL

Type08 said on Oct. 25 '08

No comment... Shocked 2! :(

NC said on Oct. 25 '08

I personally like the logo, however I can see why they chose the other over yours. Although what your logo "says" it says well, it unfortunately says something different to the logo they chose. Yours says "modern" and strips away any tradition that is often associated with pianos - in fact the first thing I thought when I saw the logo was of piano keyboards. The logo they chose although not pretty, makes it very clear what they do, and that's what a good logo should do.

nexqunyx said on Oct. 25 '08

Hey it's all good! I'm over it:) I still think my interpretation is far superior than the one they chose. I spoke to the owner of Wiesinger today and he said the decision was made by his wife and kids (under 12 years of age). The youngsters said they really liked the grand piano image. The client said if he had his way, he would have chosen mine.

Yeah...right.

TKhoury said on Oct. 26 '08

i love this one

deepside said on Oct. 29 '08

really clever
simple and nice

nexqunyx said on Oct. 30 '08

Thank you TKhoury and deepside

boxer_dude said on Nov. 21 '08

absolutely beautiful concept and execution. WELL DONE.

srd said on Nov. 24 '08

Just wonderful! I want to play it :D

pineapple said on Nov. 27 '08

Can this logo only be used with a dark background? if used on a light (or white) background, will the white piano keys be black instead? Or did you plan to add a border around the letters to preserve the correct key colors?

pineapple said on Nov. 28 '08

Follow-up: I know it's all academic now because the company chose another logo design, but I am still curious about how you saw this logo being used in different environments. As it is, though, I do think this design is very clever. Thanks.

logomotive said on Nov. 28 '08

^ the mark could be placed on a black rectangle and type reversed out, pretty simple.

fauxpeanut said on Jan. 13 '09

i love it! but the m is strange.. i dont know why.. i dont like how it's lower case.

yuyunjay said on Jan. 17 '09

That's a good idea!

satansgoalie said on Jan. 17 '09

very nice...

scala_humana said on Jan. 25 '09

so perfect! great

satya said on Feb. 04 '09

Wow!
A

eskabar said on Feb. 10 '09

this mark is so sexy

eskabar said on Feb. 10 '09

and yea, i agree with fauxpeanut. i would def consider trying it in uppercase

andreiu said on Mar. 30 '09

the best logo on LogoPond! :)

Porter Design said on Apr. 06 '09

Very cool.

Printdevil said on Apr. 11 '09

This design deserves a standing ovation!

brandon Barnard said on Apr. 11 '09

this logo is simply great. i would would even go as far to say that it is totally in tune!!

openadvertising said on Apr. 12 '09

Excellent work

Fluena said on Jun. 18 '09

This is great. It's nice looking, it's smart.

truezombie said on Jun. 23 '09

Amazing!!

felro said on Jul. 29 '09

This is serious.

mabu said on Aug. 17 '09

Super clever solution.

tiko1232 said on Sep. 01 '09

SUPERB dude :) I love to play the piano, and this logo made me love it more :) great job ;)

jsml said on Sep. 02 '09

this is the most comments i've seen on logopond! this is ingenius.

ethereal said on Sep. 04 '09

Might as well chime in. Awesome!

!mude said on Sep. 04 '09

Yeah, ok - I'll join in ... This is truly awesome.

gunterschobel said on Sep. 21 '09

Perfect logo!!!!!!

nexqunyx said on Oct. 03 '09

*Thank you!*

topicha said on Oct. 10 '09

Like it very much, idea is good, but the type is a little bit hard to reed. cool anyway

clyle said on Oct. 11 '09

i like it a lot, well done

Chad Sanderson said on Nov. 02 '09

Heads up-- http://www.logobliss.com/we-enjoy-music/

epsilon said on Nov. 02 '09

It looks like logobliss mis-attributed the rip. They appear to have pulled the logo off imjustcreative blog and assumed it was done by its owner (who has an "LP account":http://logopond.com/members/profile/showcase/15009).

lundeja said on Nov. 02 '09

Good luck getting Graham to own up to it, though maybe he has because it's not on his site anymore.

logomotive said on Nov. 02 '09

^and was not up loaded to his folio here either. Actually his best work IMO yet...not?

lundeja said on Nov. 02 '09

Still on his Flickr, though.

logomotive said on Nov. 02 '09

Twitter him, that'll get a response.

logomotive said on Nov. 02 '09

I just hate people thinking they can just use an idea and slightly tweak it and call it their own.

epsilon said on Nov. 02 '09

@lundeja - ha, you are right, it _is_ in his Flickr stream

nexqunyx said on Nov. 03 '09

WHOA! I haven't been around here much...what the heck is going on?!!!

Chad Sanderson said on Nov. 03 '09

David said he would probably remove it. Still though...

RGD said on Nov. 04 '09

Wicked! Looks fantastic.

logotistical said on Nov. 28 '09

ah this is perfect mark

JoePrince said on Jan. 21 '10

I already floated, but just want to say that this is one of my favorites. Nice work buddy!

federicohuscher said on Jan. 28 '10

yes, fantastic idea... a work with a great idea not just graghic designed.

flatsigns said on Feb. 21 '10

Magic! Love it!

nexqunyx said on Feb. 23 '10

@logotistical, JoePrince, federicohuscher, flatsigns- THANKS!

HomeDesignBusiness said on Apr. 10 '10

Beautiful idea, the piano keys work perfectly as letters.

chrislyle design said on Apr. 11 '10

I love this. its so simple and perfect.

inktpatronen said on Apr. 25 '10

Very nice logo. I like it very much.
It's so clever. Nice work.

troFdot said on Apr. 25 '10

It's cool!

Gossi said on May. 04 '10

Great idea!

logopunk said on May. 07 '10

Saw something similar with wine bottle, but great concept and execution. Perhaps a little more space between the keys?

Junkan said on Jun. 14 '10

Nice concept...Simple and to the point. Like every logo should be. Good job.

sebastiany said on Jun. 17 '10

Dude... this F* (sorry) just copy both our work

http://www.1logomarcas.com.br/criacao_de_logomarcas/

He did also copy others designs here from logopond

milou said on Jun. 17 '10

^ Wow, this guy seems to have more of our designs... :/

sebastiany said on Jun. 17 '10

I hate so much this copy/paste thing

alexanderspliid said on Jun. 17 '10

90% of those logos are copied... so sad.

crni said on Jun. 21 '10

Pro logo, what can i say.

simpsondesigns said on Jul. 03 '10

Very Creative! I like it.

Noetic Brands said on Jul. 09 '10

Magnificient work!

e-stylez said on Jul. 14 '10

nice! i like it a lot

firebrand said on Aug. 12 '10

^^ Please don't bookmark it.

chirp said on Aug. 12 '10

^ This may be the piano key logo that inspired most or all of the others.

viticor said on Aug. 17 '10

Clean, very nice!

pryczkat said on Aug. 19 '10

nice

dotpeak web design said on Sep. 10 '10

Excellent icon and typography

fukuda said on Oct. 19 '10

Miracle!

ardystic said on Oct. 19 '10

the icon could not have been more perfect. it's so perfect i felt the need to register and tell you it's perfect. very well done.

jessicahousel said on Dec. 30 '10

I love your piano logo, Nice work!!

lumo said on Jan. 03 '11

Found an almost exact duplicate copy of this logo. How can I reach you?

Visualisierung Regensburg said on Feb. 27 '11

Your logo is awesome. Great concept!

wizemark said on Mar. 02 '11

^best monologue so far!

tintation said on May. 06 '11

I really like the idea of W and M in a logo together :)
Great Job!

Authority Articles said on Aug. 02 '11

Great design with the keyboard creating the main lettering.

machine head said on Sep. 19 '11

Love it!
Just enough width between the two letters to differentiate, but not enough to break up the idea that it's one keyboard.

The idea seems simple when you see it, but they're always the best!

Type and Signs said on Mar. 01 '12

yep brilliant work !!

MiroKozel said on May. 09 '12

amazing, i love this logo

Mr Ganky said on Sep. 28 '12

Lovely design mate! Just wondering, are you a part of this company, thus sharing your work in their portfolio, or did they copy your work? If so you should report them.

Very cool design

OpShopAustralia said on Jan. 15 '13

Anyone know how to get in touch with NEXQUNYX ? There is a logo of his I am interested in. Kind Regards

britrohn said on Jul. 16 '13

I absolutely love this! I was doing some research for a project and found a ton of submissions that have been trying to copy your work. http://99designs.com/logo-design/contests/logo-para-mercasonic-230794

cehacheka said on Mar. 28 '14

I've seen this before in my 1990 Casio keyboard.

http://www.trademarkia.com/advanced-wave-memory-awm-73654536.html

how is this possible?

logomotive said on Mar. 28 '14

Interesting.. but it can happen.
