Description: The concept behind the mark is based on the age-old alchemic practice of attempting to artificially mass produce gold by way of fusion/synthesis with other elements. Since gold has only one stable isotope (the element Au) a massive chemical reaction would need to occur to generate this isotope.

Very nice, Josh. I love your extremely deep and thoughtful concept, and I'm sure your client did, too. Really digging the implied pestle.

What I like about you is that in all of your work, the concept is king. I wish more people had this mentality.

Thanks a bunch guys :)**@Nathan Appreciate you saying that, I always try to a concept down, logo before I start to sketch :)**For further analysis of the concept%3B There is only x3 active protons difference between Lead %26 Gold. They're 'chemically' different...reaction to solvents, melting temp, etc...but, if you were to extract those x3 protons from lead theoretically, you would have gold.**Things like American Idol employ this 'extraction' tactic...slowly removing the unnecessary protons (contestants) till they have their 'golden result' - a season winner.

Great logo design, but why is the fire both out and inside the bowl?

Thanks guys :)**@logo design. Basically a reactive 'event' can only be contained for so long, eventually it would spread...for example, viral marketing.

The logo is great. As a concept, this is incredibly clever and creative%3B did you come up with the idea or was the name your client's choice? Regardless, this is a very nice implementation of the concept. GREAT work!

Thanks :) I've seen that one (it's older than mine), Gert mentioned that logo too. To be honest (if may plead ignorant) despite the use of a mortar %26 pestle...I can't see the connection.
