thank you both. always appreciate the comments.
Nice, Colin, nice job!
thanks sean, i'm hoping she goes for this one.
Awesome work, Colin. You nailed it. There's some really interesting depth to the symbolism you have going on. I love how the icon and type come together with shared graphic elements.**Actually, I just noticed something as I was typing this comment. Feel free to disregard this if you think it's simply crazy:**When I first looked at this mark, I immediately saw a face, but I tried to disregard this image after reading your description, and instead tried focusing on the individual elements and the symbolism therein.**But the longer I sit with it, the more the face comes back into view. And when I squint, something a bit disturbing happens: The entire icon takes on the appearance of a man's head. The swirls at the base of the camera become eyes%3B the female symbol becomes a nose%3B the swirled outer circle becomes a head of wild hair and facial hair. I don't know if anyone else will see this, but I keep seeing it, and considering the subject matter, it's kinda creepy.**If you see this at all, and think it might be problematic, I think this issue could be solved rather easily if you removed the swirls at the base of the camera. This would remove the %22eyes,%22 and, consequently, the face would instantly disappear.**Otherwise, I absolutely love what you've done here.
very clever:) looks very nice:)
haha. i was waiting for someone to comment on 'the face.' yes, i noticed a tribal man immediately. i am going to try your suggestion and update this. thanks again jon.
thank you deividas!
update. any better jon?
Nice concept Colin. My only suggestion is 2nd tag. I wouldn't go with a serif font. Some clean sans serif would be a good solution.
i will take that into consideration jovan. thank you. my reasoning for a slab serif was to show a little contrast in the type.
The revision definitely takes care of the CreepFace effect. Nice update. **And I have no problem w/your slab serif type. I'm with you%3B I like the contrast.
I agree with pjmaster about the tagline. I think a serif (especially slab) is too complex and has a bit too much character to read well at this size.
Cool mark. Not sold on the type yet. Seems a little in no-mans land right now. What I mean is that in spots you seem to be trying really hard to mimic the curls in the mark above it, but it is sporadic and doesn't mesh too well.*That R-S combo is beautiful. I would say to leave everything in the center clean, and then try and match the feel of the R-S on the far left 'B'. If you can do that and somehow get it to dip below the baseline like the RS, you could then have a line underneath the rest of the name that anchors the whole thing. Then the sub tag underneath it in (as others mentioned) a legible serif or slab.
sam, nathan, i'm taking your suggestions into consideration. thank you both.
updated. thanks for the crits everyone. i changed the tag to a serif instead of slab. i dropped the 'b' below the baseline and got rid of the curls in between.
Good updates, but I was talking about a sans-serif for the tagline. I just think that for type that small, a serif of any kind is a bit busy and detailed.
But you put CreepFace back in! D:**And unlike Sam and others who posted in here, I was OK with the Slab Serif from before, but I think the Serif you have now is the wrong direction.
oh man, that was a mistake. wow. okay. looks like i'm going backwards here. be back in a few.
Agree about trying a sans for the tag line. **What if you did something like this for the first two letters:*http://imageshack.us/f/830/96605900.jpg/**Think it might mirror the right side nicely, and changing the E's to lowercase would give it that touch of character without going crazy.**Man i'm still in love with that RS at the end.
jon, fixed it. sam, did it. nate, thinking about it...and i appreciate your time to draw that out for me. i think i'm just about there.
Ah,ah! Very clever!
