As seen on:
though it's a nicely illustrated mark, it seems too phallic..**You don't want it ending up on something like this http://www.jonhs.net/naughtylogos/
You guys are a little perverted %3B) I see clearly a bone...
I don't think it's phallic, I just see a bone and not a bone* too %3B)
%ABSometimes a cucumber — it’s just a cucumber.%BB %A9 S. Freud*I mean that I see clearly a bone, too (-:
↑ in previous comment*Sometimes a cucumber it's just a cucumber.
crazy name, why the name is boyar dog. your customer is dog%uFF1F
I Agree with Danny, it definely has the wrong subliminal message...
HAH funny idea! I got the reference to chef boyardee www.chefboyardee.com%0D*Clever!
The phallic symbol is very apparent. It's not the kind of subliminal message any company wants to send.
Thanks for the comments everyone. I didn't see anything phallic about it when I was designing it. But I thank you for being honest.
Not that it has anything to do with you, Double A, but I wonder if there are any legal implications with using that name?**Also, hidden phalli aren't necessarily a bad thing - advertisers have been hiding wangs in things for decades - sex sells %3B)
BTW: Past the implied imagery, I wanted to mention I do like the logo. It's clean and has a lot of character. Keep up the good work!
Thx guys. The comments are appreciated.
great idea I like it.
Nice one. I totally get why others are seeing this a phallic, but honestly, it's clearly evident that it's a chef hat and a dog bone, and that absolutely no reference to a phallic imagery is implied. So if you're seeing a dong, well, go take a cold shower %3B)
While I think this logo is an exception because of the bone/hat shape's interactivity, it's true that we as designers are trained to see any hint of phallic symbols. Not because we're perverts but because if we can see it, then somebody else will. And once you see it, you will always relate it, unfortunately. You need to eliminate any ulterior interpretations from your work to help it's success. Not doing this is just plain lazy. But to restate my first point...this mark is really clever and I think should be ok. You have a great body of work.
Thanks you for the comments and options. I appreciate the insight.
