Description: This logo designed for a an athletic shoe company hopefully competing with the some of the big dogs. This work is one of my most proudest concepts.The "D" represents the sections of a racetrack . The mark also has the shape of a human head with the hair flowing. The mark is strong and memorable. Hope you all see what I see as well.Custom type.

I actually didn't see a head or a race track in this but a wing instead which is equally important. I love the way the small serifs are styles to compliment the symbol. Just beautiful. Very strong!

Okay, I'll be the grinch here, I think its nice but stylistically I see this close to Adidas. The type also seems just a little too low or its too close to the symbol. Anyway I understand your description well and it still is high quality work as always holmes. I'm curious if there's a coloured version?

Thanks Julian, there's always going to be controversy over the more simplistic designs, especially in the same industry. The lines convey a different purpose, are horizontal,have rounded shape and form 3 meanings or more depending on how you see it. Everyone has an opinion. I back my work 100%25 an was not inspired whatsoever by any other works. I did my background studies. Now the PTO will make that decision. Hopefully I'll open a new pair of sneakers with this mark on it Christmas day and you can be the grinch who did NOT steal Christmas, LOL!!

This is so well executed mike. So simple but so much character. Did the company ever take off?

Thanks James.*Dennis, I wish, one of those ten year projects I guess. Client wanted me to do like 10 Pantone combos for shoes etc. I have not heard from since.
