What if the tie formed a beam of light and the collar was stylised more to look like a UFO?

itsgareth said on Nov. 06 '09

Or was that your intention? I dunno, thinking out loud here...I'll shut up now.

Chad Sanderson said on Nov. 06 '09

Oh man, this is almost there. Once I saw the spaceship, it was hard to see anything else... but I still think it could be a "tad" more clear. What if you thinned out the knot of the tie a little, maybe? Or widened the skinny part (words fail me) or maybe even reduced the thickness of the collar? Just something to learn it a hair more towards 'alien'. I don't know. I'm just rambling now.

itsgareth said on Nov. 06 '09

^ is there any echo in hereeeeeeeeee eeeeeerree? ;)

mfrank said on Nov. 06 '09

Well this is really interesting. I didn't even see the spacecraft myself! lol. I was trying to make an alien figure; torso, head, arms. I can definitely gear it towards a spacecraft. ;)

logomotive said on Nov. 06 '09

I say the alien with arms out right away very clever.

logomotive said on Nov. 06 '09

Kinda looks like a praying mantice.

mfrank said on Nov. 06 '09

Modern Mantice?

logomotive said on Nov. 06 '09

Ha no just trying to help those that can't see it. I think the collar could be slightly improved though not so sharp perspective, might help bring head shape more round.

brad todd said on Nov. 06 '09

I definitely saw mantis alien first, but after reading the comments I also see UFO beaming someone up. You could probably use this as a psychologists ink blot as well!

j-CAZ said on Nov. 06 '09

I'm diggin it.

mfrank said on Nov. 06 '09

Thanks for the positive feedback everyone.

I rounded out the head more. Hopefully this helps?..

megashred13 said on Nov. 06 '09

nice one...i love this!

Chad Sanderson said on Nov. 06 '09

lol. I just realized I basically repeated exactly what gareth said.

mfrank said on Nov. 06 '09

Thanks Tony, jcraz, megashred, Mike, Chad and Gareth. Whew! Forget anyone? ;)

--I swear I updated the logo..maybe not...but the head is now more of an oval.

Here we go again. When will it end?

Hayes Image said on Nov. 17 '09

Either when computer virus' start infecting people...or, the coming of the robot war.

OcularInk said on Nov. 17 '09

It's never going to end. Unfortunately, the world is full of dishonest people.

megashred13 said on Nov. 17 '09

^ha just saw that one...they're getting more and more bold...

chad_hatz said on Nov. 17 '09

keep up the good work Matt.. I think we may be the only peeps in ND on this site. lol and in the same city. Check out some of my revised BS logos. I am looking in rebranding the business but not sure how to go.

mfrank said on Nov. 17 '09

Thanks Stephen and James for filling me in. That really sucks. Too bad I can't critique on his logo......

logomotive said on Nov. 17 '09

^ WOW what a jerk. Only one he has red flagged too.

logomotive said on Nov. 17 '09

^it's suppose to represent a figure also David, not just a tie IMO

logomotive said on Nov. 17 '09

Regardless you can't just go grabbing someone else's artwork and use for your own. They are identical.

OcularInk said on Nov. 17 '09

David, look closer. The tie portion of the image is exactly the same. The other designer simply cut out part of the oval shape at the top and added a weird looking eye and party hat.

logomotive said on Nov. 17 '09

http://twitpic.com/pw104 You decide. Sorry for muddying up your post mfrank.

epsilon said on Nov. 17 '09

Yup, it is clearly a rip.

mfrank said on Nov. 17 '09

Thanks Mike for looking out for me and don't worry about all the posts.

I hate pointing fingers because I did this just for fun. However, you got to be kidding me that his only solution for his logo was to make the tie look exactly like mine. Come on..it doesn't even look natural with what he has going on in his logo. There are definitely other ways he could have drawn the tie to fit better with his logo....but I don't want to start nit picking at his logo.

I'd like to hear his thoughts...

mfrank said on Nov. 17 '09

Dave,
To play devil advocates back..(not to step on your toes or anything..just expression my thoughts)..isn't it in a creative's mind to make sure logos don't look the same? Give me a piece of paper/pencil and I'd be happy to redraw a tie/collar with different styles/looks. I don't buy that there are a few to none ways to do this....otherwise I'm not being true to myself.

lundeja said on Nov. 17 '09

^Well said

jn said on Jan. 04 '10

very creative - nice work

OcularInk said on Jan. 27 '10

Just an FYI, Matt, another logo has been added to BS that uses the same collar approach. You might want to report it. http://brandstack.com/logo-design/details/15254

mfrank said on Jan. 27 '10

^Thanks Kev. I will.
