I like it very much!
I thought I floated this one Joe, here it is again.
Thanks Konrad and Rudy! This design means a lot to me, and many others I'm sure.
Very powerful, the angle of the plane is perfect. Nicely done.
Thank you Dalius and boycanfly!
Good idea, good logo!
my second home.....*respect.
Thank you Alexey and Katharine, cheers!
sadly i like this, very nicely done
nice idea ... althou i feel its sentiments are wrong ... tis the lives lost not the accident/incident .. difficult to tackle*
Thank you! It is supposed to be used as a mean of memory and remember the tough times and how we stood together as a nation. In no way should it be taken as negative or derogatory.
My vote. I hope everybody knows what happened today in %22Moscow%22:http://www.cnn.com/2010/WORLD/europe/03/29/russia.subway.explosion/index.html
Wow that's terrible Nikita.
Love this one Joe! Never forget, for sure!
Thanks a lot, this is one of my favorites. I'm thinking of getting shirts made with it. A day we will all remember. Cheers!
Very Nice Joe!
Mixed feelings about this. Executionally, it's great. And I know that your intentions are good. But I wonder if it would be clearer that it IS indeed a sign of respect if you add the words %22remember%22 or something above it.
Thanks for your concern, Adam. I had a previous version with text below it that read %22we will never forget%22. This is another iteration of the design. *Appreciate the feedback everyone.
A very powerful logo matey, and I'm sure people will always be reminded by this.
I've held off commenting on this for a while... **I think it's great how you got the plane in the negative space but I really don't see it as a sign of remembering anything other than the fact that the planes hit the towers on that fateful day. I'm sure family members of the victims of the tragedy would rather not be reminded of how their loved ones died in such a painful and traumatic way. I'm guessing they would prefer to be reminded of the times they spent together. **I mean for other tragedies such as Dunblane or Columbine I don't think you would illustrate a person holding a gun? That would be seen as out of taste, so I don't see the difference here.**I'm not hating on you Joe, I just get a strange vibe from this, and think creating memorial type images is a very tricky and sensitive subject.
I'm thinking of doing a design of an OJ head with a neck that is angled off but I'm not. Because I don't want to remember some things. I love the execution but the subject is way too easy - and seems to be an attention grab.
@Quintas_Maximus, thank you mate.*@Gareth, thanks for voicing your opinion. This is a very controversial/touchy subject that can be interpreted in many different ways. As you know from your experience in the world of design, it's all about what **you** see in the design.*@dannyfranklin, appreciate the response.
Actually mate, it's not what I or you see it's what the people who the logo is targeted at will see in the logo that really counts. And think the relatives of the victims of 9/11 would find this offensive.
I appreciate your concern, Gareth. I'm not disagreeing with you that some would find this offensive%3B that's very likely to happen with many designs involving historical events. The main attribute of this is to express remembrance and gratitude to those afflicted by the events that day.
Thanks for the response, Tony. You and Gareth both bring interesting points that I will take into consideration. As my intentions with this design were/are purely good, it seems to be too controversial with the plane. The '11' acting as the two towers has been done in several designs and I was trying to make it more original and memorable using the negative space. Cheers man.
Very nice logo! Simple and clean logo design, great work Joe!
Oooo...reminds me....aaarrrghh....but simply clean logo
love this idea :)
Wow, nothing more to say.
I also had the concerns that others here expressed as soon as I saw the logo.
But my conclusion is that it is a very powerful image indeed, and I think it is perfect the way it is.
I think this is a logo that works for maybe a tv show that makes a recap of the hour by hour of that day.
Also, a tag line would make it even better.
