spotted it straight away. nice job. I like the J, I also had done something similar with my Navan Physio hand as the Physio's name is Joanne (she didn't really care thought!), its a nice letterform to work with.**Are we going to see color and will you do a custom on the type? this would work lovely printed embossed! :)

It%60s creative and has a nice flow, but rotated heart always reminds me on something else.. :)

really think this guy done a smashing job on this...**http://www.impallari.com/lobster/**might be a bit heavy though.

JoePrince Aug. 12 '10

Btw Srdjan, I did some rotations and transformations with the mark that will serve as decorative pieces on some of the printed items.

JoePrince Aug. 12 '10

Might be a little heavy but I'll definitely look into it Paul, much appreciated :)

Really Clever Joe. IMO I think the type is important here and needs to be a little bigger. More Jessica and Tony?

Reply
JoePrince Aug. 12 '10

You better knock that off Paul! Pretty soon you're gonna be giving your house away :P Only kidding, free resources are always appreciated.*@Mike, thanks for the input. This is a WIP and the type is just in place until I figure out a nice match. I'll make it bigger though in any case, cheers!

Mads and Muhammad, cheers fellas. Still making minor adjustments but he is very happy with it which is the most important part. Thanks.

This is sweet mark Joe... One question tho... Why Jessica %26 Tony... why not Tony and Jessica? Are you the designer from the bride's side :D... JK.%0D*Coz usually the male name is followed... e.g Romeo %26 Juliet, Antonio %26 Cleopetra etc?

Reply
JoePrince Aug. 17 '10

Thanks Riz! I did some research and thought the woman's name goes first...apparently I need to check my sources :P**Thanks for the heads up mate.

mcdseven Aug. 18 '10

I'd make it a tad smaller, but overall its very impressive. A nice gift to give to a sibling. Nice choice of type.

Reply
JoePrince Aug. 18 '10

@Anthony %26 Paul, you guys are right. I'll make the mark smaller.*@Peter, thank you.

JoePrince Aug. 18 '10

UPDATED, thanks for the suggestions.

Nice, Joe, love the heart shape!

JoePrince Aug. 19 '10

Hey Sean, how's it going my man? Been a while.

Reply
JoePrince Aug. 19 '10

I've updated the mark and type. Made it look less like a butt or boobs and have the heart be more subtle. It also brings out the legibility for the J %26 T better. Cheers!

Yeah, cool changes. I'm liking.

Milosz and Nikita, cheers!

What's not to get Matt? I mean, I think it's obvious that the mark is a side-view of a house...you know they're doing wonderful things in mental institutions these days :P

Nice mark, but for me the background is very rude, however a good logo :)

Reply
brandsimplicity Nov. 11 '10

Great design...but is it just me or does the date seem like a R.I.P...well after 40 years of marriage...some pray for that!

Reply
JoePrince Nov. 11 '10

@Ivan, thanks man. I'm going to remove the background...you're right. @Fabian, haha! I guess only time will tell :P
