Description: Sorry in advance folks. I wasn't satisfied with my previous versions and I shunned it for several weeks. Now its has resurfaced and I'm quite happy with this version. Its bolder, simpler, and more contemporary. Initials C and D incorporating the cup once again. Your comments are most welcome. Cheers.

Chanp, yeah I like this one, The type looks great but compared with trophy the contrast seems a little heavy if that makes sense? I know it's the same line weight but perhaps it can be reduced ever so slightly, OK I'm being nit picky sorry.

Thanks and thats perfectly fine nate. Its good to be picky. Thats how we get closer to perfection! I'll reduce the thickness a little bit just for you bud!**Thx nido and mcd. I have my site to design so I thought I had better get this finalised.

Hey Chanpion I really like your work. I just wanted to comment on this one since it's your personal Logo. The trophy is great (C%26D), however I think that this free font 'Aldo' got a bit overused since it came out I have spotted it on many flyers websites and other places. I find it easy recognizable and my suggestion is that you try to customise the 'G' ,although is a nice one, but it's the most distinctive. Considerning your skills I think that your personal mark will turn out geat :)

Hmm...thanks tish. Very good point. You're right. It's a nice font but it is abit overused, isn't it. I might go and tweak it abit. I've spent so much time on the mark that I've overlooked the font. Great suggestion. Thx again.

Hey Chanpion...IMHO I wouldnt be changing it all that much and I have seen Aldo in use a few instances along with helvetica, Intersate...Neuropol...the list goes on, but in each instance thay had there own own unique look and feel which is the case here. if you feel you need tweak it, take the 'd' flip it vertically and add a little curve at the end and hey presto. As I said earlier I think you have nailed and its by fare the best...so good luck

yeah a flipped and customised 'd' should work fine :)*'mcdseven'- Neuropol is another good example of overuse and wrong use, but I don't see how Helvetica can be put in the same list !

Tishbite...you are joking? Dont know what design world your from Dude..but if you look up a lot of logos designed for medium/larger companies with a corporate feel across the world, different weights of Helvetica/Helvetica Neue is used quite consirably, a far lot more than Ray Larabies Neuropol (which had a couple of years in fashion). And I never said it was used wrong, just said that it is used a Lot. Cheers Dude %3B-)

'mcdseven'-I really don't want to explain to you what the difference between Helvetica %26 Neuropol is, but it's not in how often they are used :) Cheers

Solid identity, dude! One question - is the 'D' part of the mark slightly (very slightly) thicker than the 'C' part? Or maybe my eyes are playing tricks on me. Look at me being all nit-picky. Looks great!

chanpion May. 05 '07

Hey Kev. thanks mate! How are you doin? Actually after you said that I went and blown it up to see whether it was the case. I remember using the the 'C' part to make the 'D' but guess what? You're right, the top and bottom stroke on the 'D' is a fraction off! Man, ya gotta stop puttin your nose against the monitor dude %3B ) I thought I was bad. Thx again mate.
