i love this whale! i'm a little perplexed by the name "squared eye" and the whale's eye is round.

Very cute but I have to agree with gyui. I think there is just a little contradiction between the title and the illustration. Regardless though, I love it!

As well as the whale I also love the grid background, it reminds me of a swimming pool...beautiful stuff

superdave4eva said on Mar. 10 '09

I guess I don't see what everyone is raving about, I don't find it all that great... and I actually respect many of the designers leaving comments. Then again, perhaps that is why my logos don't get floated all that often. This whole website perplexes me!

ranganath said on Mar. 11 '09

nice Illustration over there.

leoramires said on Mar. 11 '09

nido said on Mar. 11 '09

great illustration!.. you must have had a whale of a time doing this one!...

guyzelz said on Mar. 12 '09

Awesome, love the look and feel! Is anybody here old enough to remember Fuzzy Felts? (if anyone thinks I'm nuts, Google that term)

Could you provide a little context for this though please? Wondering what the name means and how this gets the job done. Or was it just for fun? Thanks.

rfrusso said on Mar. 12 '09

I absolutely love everything about this. Great work. Nice site, too.

matt.h said on Mar. 12 '09

Great logo. Love your website!

AlexWende said on Mar. 13 '09

love the illustration, great work

tokostyler said on Mar. 14 '09

Great illustration:)

logoboom said on Mar. 14 '09

While I love the illustration and execution, I find it a terribly confusing name in relation to the mark and odd brand in relation to what you do. But that'll be up to your marketing efforts to trump those challenges.

Kirby said on Mar. 15 '09

that bird looks too much like a whael

theartistt said on Mar. 15 '09

agree with logoboom.

ajgagnon said on Mar. 16 '09

Love the font. What font is that?

jameseduardo said on Mar. 16 '09

She is happy : )

ingero said on Mar. 17 '09

I believe the font is Rockwell, but it could be any slab serif I suppose.

cgeran said on Mar. 17 '09

This looks a lot like an illustration from my children's book.

Very cool illustration! That font is Archer, I beleive.

hindmarshdesign said on Mar. 18 '09

...yeah...strangely similar. I can see the differences, though there aren't all that many.

hindmarshdesign said on Mar. 18 '09

By the way I'm not making accusations towards anyone, so leave your soap boxes back in the cupboard.

squaredeye said on Apr. 02 '09

Sorry for the belated reply. I didn't bother to follow up :(

I am thankful for all the great compliments about our new logo. Able is responsible for it, and you can find their site here : http://designedbyable.com (which Squared Eye designed for them)

Able are an extremely ethical group, and so I can say with absolute confidence that the similarities to Chad's work and this logo are utterly coincidental, albeit remarkable :)! I saw Chad's design on ffffound.com about 3 months ago and have been looking for the designer ever since. Your work is outstanding! I love the book illustrations.

Thanks again,

Matthew

Yeah, it's nice, amazing, great because Chad Geran created it first. I'm glad Chad made a comment on it. I'm surprised he hasn't asked you to cease using it, or at least fork over a little dough for his effort.
