Stupid client! That's very memorable

Siah-Design said on Jul. 17 '09

Thanks All!

@Gold Coast: Actually, the client was real pleasure to work with. Its just that I had a better solution for his needs that I had presented him as well that he went with instead. :D

I'll showcase the other concept once he launches his new identity.

Wow beautiful, really! Would be great to see how you would translate this to a black/white(gray) version though ...

Siah-Design said on Jul. 28 '09

Thanks guys! Cheers Dalius :D

@leime: it actually still works quite well in black/white. It doesn't have the same impact as the color version but its definitely still recognizable and memorable.

Good find Rokac. Shame.

Rokac said on Feb. 10 '10

@firebrand
Shame indeed. I've already reported the guy.

siah-design said on Feb. 10 '10

Thanks for the heads up and reporting Rokac. Some people just don't get it.

Let me clear the air:
"Some people just don't get it."
Maybe I did get it. With all do respect- I had never seen this logo before I did mine for 99 designs. I've never knew about LogoPond before.
As fellow designers you should be ashamed of yourselves for accusing another designer of copying before they have a chance to explain. I don't like being vilified by my peers - I don't copy. I hate copy-cats, and every now and then I seem to loose design competitions to copy-cats. So there's no way I would EVER copy another's design.
My design intent was to have a ladder going up to a neon moon shaped like a J, but more moon-like (to symbolize aiming high- reaching for your goals). A neon moon made of many tubular lights mixed with the idea of light moving over long camera exposures. The contest holder mentioned some logos for inspiration (Zipliner and Creative) were two that stood out. I did just that - used them as inspiration - as all designers do. I removed the ladder in my concept because it was cluttering it up. And ended up with a SIMILAR logo to the likes of DREAMZ.

Your Dreamz logo is fabulous. And I laughed to myself when someone pointed out that "it was a copy". Because when dealing with the word "Dream" it's not uncommon to think of a moon (or stars/ clouds). So after meshing the inspirations from other elements - it's no surprise to me that someone would think they look alike.

I show nothing but respect for other designers. I would hope that you will respect me and not vilify me about this. I care about DESIGN too much to just let my peers bash and accuse me of something I did not do.

Thank you,
Ted

firebrand said on Feb. 12 '10

@doobious: Thank you for explaining your position. The reason why there are so many incidences of plagiarism on crowdsourcing sites is that the odds of winning a contest are about 100-1. Faced with these odds it's no wonder there is little incentive to put any man hours in. Perhaps you should ask yourself why you participate on crowdsourcing sites at all, given that so many are won by copycats as you put it.

siah-design said on Feb. 12 '10

@Roy: Amen.

@Doobious: Thank you for voicing your opinion on the matter. I apologize for assuming you ripped my logo. But considering that so many other people that enter contests do rip I guess it was a natural assumption.

Once again, sorry for the assuming - I've been wrongly accused before and I know it doesn't feel good.

doobious said on Feb. 13 '10

No offense taken, guys. I know how it is - anyone with PhotoShop these days is a "designer". I enter these competitions to earn a little cash on the side in between jobs, but lately its been really frustrating, and getting accused of copying and being vilified within a competition was the "straw that broke the camel's back" so to speak.
After discovering LogoPond, I absolutely appreciate the work on here and (like always) have the utmost respect for fellow designers.
I just couldn't bear with being labeled a copy cat, by my peers. Thanks for understanding, and since your design was obviously created before mine I have "thrown mine away" to never use it.

nido said on Feb. 14 '10

its like a group hug... hey.. wheres my wallet!

doobious said on Feb. 15 '10

@ClimaxDesigns:Thanks. I did not know this. As you all know - I'm a noobie here. LOL

@nido: LOL. Yeah. Gotta put a chain on that wallet!

siah-design said on Mar. 18 '10

Happy to say this unused proposal now has a home with a talented photographer. :D Now "iDream Images".

I think it works well for this photographer. It's set apart from other clich photog logos.

ethereal said on Mar. 18 '10

Ouch. Clearly a tough client I guess? Nice though, Josiah, always loved this one, nice to see it in use.

folkupaul said on Jul. 02 '10
