Yeah there is some similarity. Too close?
what does it look like without the nose?
Probably a noseless face. I dunno actually, I'll find out.
I love this, because if someone had described this logo to me I would have laughed and been unable to imagine halfway as cool as you've come up with! I like the type, too.
I'm still playing around with the type but I do like the bold GO to sell the double meaning of a logo boom and to go boom! I'm not 100% on the font yet though. But as always, designing for myself is way down on the priority list of to dos.
I love youre logo is very funny hehe
hello, you have a very nice showcase.
also i was wondering how do you manage to change your user name?, iv'e noticed you appear as both gthobbs and logoboom, and I was curious how you could do that :p
anyways, cool logo! :) cheers!
Thank you hit. I had to have the site administrator change my user name.
Hello fellow Logoponders. I am honored to join the ranks of others you might recognize from our adventures here on the Pond with an interview at:
Give us a read!
Congrats Glen. A very interesting read and it looks like your daughter might be following in her father's footsteps ;)
For crying out loud, what's it going to take to get Glen's showcase featured on the Pond? Does anyone else ever wonder why he hasn't been featured yet? Blows my mind! Great read, Glen. Thanks for letting us get in your head for sec.
"My mom used to ask me how I could keep coming up with new ideas. I explained that every client has a unique need. It%u2019s like a math. You never run out of answers because every problem has it%u2019s own solution. But then again, not so rigid as math because with design, every problem can have a million solutions. I just have to find one of them that works."
I found this excerpt to be particularly intelligent, but also enjoyed the interview as a whole. Very honest answers - no smoke and mirrors like you'll find with a lot of those more "God's gift to design"-types of whom I won't name... for now :)
Yeah, very interesting reading. Nice to get inside a logo designers head - and yours seem to be an interesting one. Congrats - and a vote from me too :)
Thank you Glen. That was very inspirational. I still can't get over your daughter's design, the imagination of kids amaze me.
The story of your daughter is so cool. reminder to look at things with a child's mind
Really cool read Glen, man your so down to earth, i loved your answer to what makes a good logo designer, so true!! that's something i miss from school, in the real designers world egos run a muck. ps. i don't think you need votes to get showcased its just a matter of time :)
I didn't think anybody would actually go read it!
Thank you guys for the great responses.
P.S. @ Oc...that's a dangerous place to be. Get out quick!
OF Course Glen, we all love you :)
watch the power I have around here!
LOGOBOOM GETS THE NEXT FEATURE ON LOGOPOND, PRONTO!
incase my lil outcry goes nowhere, good luck with everything and its nice to see you blowing up my friend
Dude, you're scaring us! :)
yeah..I can see how that could be scary bbbbbut he's the one with the bomb :|
AND a short fuse! Thank you for the fanatical support raja.
Glen its just a matter of time my friend! and you are dabomb! Your daughter is amazing and I absolutely enjoyed your interview. You are down to earth and mega talented but you are modest, kind and generous with your time. Logo pond wouldn't be the same without you IMO! FEATURE LOGOBOOM!
Wow, I didn't expect to hear so many nice things said about me until I was dead. And even then...it's iffy.
Thanks Ashley and dbunk!

LOL nido...so that's what that tiny red light is.

Thank you Madelein.
Congrats on the feature Glen...well deserved to say the least. Keep it up bud.

Congrats Glen! I thought you've featured before... At least once... :)
I really admire you work mate!! Congrats on the feature!!

Glad to see they've featured your work. Congrats Glen!
Congrats, Glen, well deserved, buddy!
Glen, good to see you featured,well deserved.
...wait till he finds out its an April Fools prank :s
Right on, dude!
Glen, congratulate, I hope you march in succeed.
Thanks to everyone for the nice comments! Except nido ;) Actually, I didn't even know I was featured until nido emailed me. So I thought I'd better hop on and enjoy my 15 minutes. It's an honor to be considered with other's of such great talent. Much appreciation to my logo pond compadres and to David for both the feature and for letting us all swim in his pond.
quick David... now change it!
Not until April Fool's day is over at midnight Mountain Standard Time.
^ congrats on the showcase.
^ meant to say feature!
Stone me, David strung that one out. Congrats ;)
Thanks Roy! We'll stone you later.
Congrats Glen, well deserved!! :)
congrat! your works rock!
Congrats friend! :D
Thanks Hayes, gary, alter, David and Dado! It's an honor.
Congrats, Glen. I actually thought you had been featured already, so I guess you could say this is well-deserved :)
Better late than never :-)
Thank you Jared / Alex!
Congrats Glen, well deserved :)
Wow, you're the last one to be featured. I wonder what's in store?
Yay Glen! I'm kind of excited about whatever is coming up next.
Congrats on the feature Glen!
I'm sure David won't use it for advertising space. Maybe a featured project in the Behance style?
I think it's just going to be a big picture of me.
^ LOL! Congrats again Glen.
congrats for the feature, mate!
@ gareth / andreiu: Thank you!
Well thank you Anthony, anthony, anthony. I sincerely appreciate that.
Congrats on the feature mr.Glen! Well deserved.
excellent work, how do you change the background color on illustator cs4 and can a gradient be used as background color also.
Kudos Mr. Boom!, how do you make a ...... oh never mind :)
Thanks rokac and javaap! And @mrizzle: you should probably do a tutorial.
congrats on the feature
Thank you cerise!
Congrats Glen! Very well deserved!
Congrats Glen! Well deserved man! I also thought you were there long time ago! Cheers!
@ bojan: I guess it's a high compliment that a lot of folks assumed I was already featured. I'll take it that way anyway ;-)
I like it! Little bit inverse of LG logo!
better late than never, Congratulations!!
I'm always late to the party. Thanks Alex!
Haha! Was the inspiration for this logo "Speedee", McDonald's first mascot? ;)
Yep. I make logos and burgers with mystery meat ;-)
Hi Logoboom, you commented on my 'explogo' logo indicating it was a similar idea.
Based on this, I'm just trying to get in touch to ask if you would be interested in buying the domain name www.explogo.com?
I'm not a domain trader it's just that I've accumulated almost 20 over the last year from 'flash in the pan' ideas that I've had and I just don't need them. If you're not interested do you know of any easy ways to sell domain names?
I'm not trying to get rich, i've just seen the light (with the help of my wife)!
Cheers. (p.s., sorry if this is counted as spamming - please feel free to delete if it is... just couldn't see a way to PM?)
Hey no problem youstart....I think I'm good on the url front. It is a cool name though. Good luck!
I'm digging your identity, buddy. Really explosive.
Thanks simon. I'm glad it's not a bomb...wait...
funny and cute
Thank you fellas.
