Lets Discuss

cool site but SO not a fan of this logo. Mostly for personal reasons of being over magenta, but also becasue I don't like the font: it's not classy enough for a site dedicated to showcasing brilliant logos. I feel the mark could be better drawn into something a little less....boring.

I'm going to go out on a limb and suggest this logo is in fact %22generic%22 because the nature of the site is to showcase OTHER logos.**Sort of like my thoughts on designers' and photographers' portfolio sites. The site itself should be simple enough as the purpose is to showcase the actual work.

I'm with rfrusso on this one. I think the logo works well. I like the use of the circle. One of the most basic and used geometric shapes in logo design. I'm sure there's room for changes, but I like it as is too. And cheers for another great logo/inspiration site.

OcularInk %26 Rfrusso had it pretty spot on (excuse the pun). The circle is one of the most basic and geometric shapes used in logo design and it is simple enough to showcase others logos, without drawing too much attention away from the other logos. It is memorable, easy to identify while looking like an award which is partial to the purpose of the site.

I got it the first time round...Its a pretty obvious concept...but I still think there's aspects that need improvement.

Jacob, it is far from being memorable. Perhaps only through an awkward spacing of the mark elements and rather abysmal color choice .. but it wasn't probably an intent. It really does look like a item from the MS Word clip art gallery.

It also carries a strong resemblance to the Japanese flag.

Thanks Epsilon, wasn't aware of that logo. The concept of my logo award logo is based around the geometric shape of a circle being one of the most used shapes in logo design. **ie:*http://www.webdesignerdepot.com/2009/05/50-excellent-circular-logos/ **The heath (leaves) is a symbol of an award (think movie posters) and this is the concept behind the Logo Of The Day logo.
