I was so facinated with Roy's Fortuna fish I tried a similar concept. Just for fun. Roy's Tuna Fish is a classic, thanks for your inspiration Roy.
Ssssssssssssmoken'. When done right, gradents can really pop. I like the neg. space too. How did you do the yellowish hi-lights? I'd like to see a close-up of the snake if possible :).
wow, great mark logomotive!:)
Thanks guys, yeah joder, I'll try to upload just the Snake. Just gradients working for one to another that's all.
joder, I really appreciate the fact the you noticed the negative space also.
mike, please write a logomotive's gradient style tutorial for us...*it looks nice and shiny and glossy :)
this has nice depth to it
I would like that tutorial...
%5EThanks guys, One of these days..... I will do a blog or update my site and have a couple of tutorials, before hell freezes over %3B-)
Nice to inspire OB1 %3B)
Can't believe I forgot to comment on this. Beautiful snake. Excellent rendering.
Your skills never cease to amaze me!
It is gorgeous. I see you've done several snake logos (including an odd toad). Herpetologist maybe?
the shading is top notch--really leaps off the screen. i like the type as well and its in perfect proportion to the mark
%5E LOL yeah sounds kind of bad, learned something new today the word %22Herpetologist%22. Thanksssssssss guys glad you like ribb..it!
yeah , never fails to amaze
Very sexy hot %3BD
Awesome color usage and an excellent flow. Well done!
*Yup negitive space is a often overlooked tool in the tool box. Love the mate-up of the mark to the shape of the %22S%22 too.
Congrats! really cool logo!
joder, thanks for noticing.*gorz, thanks glad you like it.
Woah! I think I must be going blind! I totally missed this, really impressive.
Great design logomotive! Sent an e-mail to the address from your website, is it a current one?
%5E thanks gareth, you've been pretty impressive yourself lately :-)*andyb, sorry have not seen it email is Mike_at_logomotive.net*
Incredible :) I must say at first I miss judged you :p The first thing I saw from you was your homepage, your work is something else.*what's with that negative space your talking about? Can't see it(off course).
as if jump out from the display. excellent work!!
%5E%5E Thanks.*jonvic, just the equal balanced spacing issue, that's all.
Ok, I see, it's a nice detail :)*I love it but there's something bugging me...*...maybe it's envy :p
If it's possible, I think uhm... I'm in love with this logo. It is so tight.
Oh man, your snake is so cool. Love how symmetrical it is. Nice 3d effects.
This is the best !!!
A very good throwback to the nineties. Will be one of those timeless logos that will stick with a company for decades. Congratulations!
man this is so nice... im actually jealous!
This is tip of the iceberg of logo design. One of my top favorites of all time. I am fascinated watching this. Its still like a bath for my eyes :-)
Thanks guys, but I'm so sorry to inform you but this is sooooo fake. I made it up. My acrylic paintings are also made up and I will have to tell my clients both who want to buy my paintings and or logos that they are fake and not for real. These are just optical illusions a figment of your imagination. If I had a REAl client not sure I can be creative enough to solve your problem. Sorry but this is just fake stuff.
a fake!!!... oh well.. thats just killed it!.. kernings well off too.. now you mention it!
%5E yeah! want your vote back %3D)
thats awsome great job !
now this is fake... http://www.crowdspring.com/projects/graphic_design/logo/re_brand_existing_company_as_spin_business_group_inc/gallery/node_1118020
What now? the site is not working? what was it linked to?
FWIW, Crowdspring removed the stolen logo and will not sell. One win for us... Yeah.
%5ETHAT is about the rudest thing I have seen done. AT least give some background or link on this design. You take a full space image yet give no background. WHERE did this come from?, who did it come from?, and when did they do it. While this is a bit different not sure that's suppose to be a snake or what but please have a little courtesy when posting. RUDE.
%22Where%22 is an easy question: http://www.logomaid.com/detail.php?uid%3D8612%0D*(you simply view the image properties), I don%B4t know about the others.
Ah .. Logomaid .. I see they haven't learnt much from their %22Simple Bits f*ckup%22:http://www.flickr.com/photos/simplebitsdan/42926559
%22Here I fixed it, Alex :)%22:http://www.flickr.com/photos/simplebitsdan/429265591
%[email protected] first of all, I wasn't disrespecting you with my previous post. I was going to leave a note to inform you of what I found on the web but I had to step away from my pc really quick last night. I wasn't insinuating that you ripped this design. Actually I meant to say that YOU got ripped. Relax baby...you're still THE logo-branding god:-)%25
fishinapond, Ok but just so you understand where I'm coming from. This particular design was blantantly ripped and tried being sold on crowdspring as a winning entry, I have battled this for a few months. Hey if someone did something like this concept prior to me I'm the first to admit and remove and it has happened before.
http://pay4pay.co.in/job_fair**yet another rip off.
THANKS!! Sandhya. I could make some good money on this one with a good lawyer.
Duuuuuuuude, Sangam Cinemas? Its not even a design that looks %22close%22 and is an obvious ripoff%3B this is a verbatim copy. Sorry to see this dude, I guess it comes with being one of the greats. I'd start cinema face punching, lol. They'd be like, %22oww my faaaace, here's ur logo back sorry%22.
What does this have to do with Cinemas anyhow? Geez! Pay up people and you can have it.
Total rip off Mike, they did'nt even bother to change it. So wish we could gather a posse and do some linchin's
It's a popular one....
Boy I guess 11K views just here. No wonder.
http://www.sangamcinemas.com/ LOL look at the negative space.
Have you contacted them already or do I have to phone my Sicilian connections?
@Jared, yes on the first question. And perhaps on the second :) No response so far and I'm a very impatient person.
The design agency that Sangam hired probably ripped it from here is what I hear.
Sandhya, Well they have not responded, so I might have to do some digging here. Thanks.
Hey mike! is this the link to your website???? http://www.logomotive.net/... because if this is it.. im really freaking out! :o
I did complain to them about the fake logo to crowdsprung... and they responded.. i can forward you that mail mike... but before that better check what happened to your website
It reminds me of http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/1/12/Oncos_logo.png
Holy cow doodlecow, thanks some lame duck hijacked my site. Thanks.
it%60s in the club now.
Thanks wizemark, but what club?
I think Srdjan is referring to Club 100 Mike...you're on the VIP list already though so don't worry about it.
Joe, OH I thought I was in some special snake club or something. I'm on a VIP list? Not what they say when I try to get into those clubs :)
I like this design, but would like to tweak it for my Christian ministry I am starting (savingsinnersministries). Do you mind?
Just curious, smartinez, are you asking to use it for free?
%5E me too :)
%5E LOL well kinda sorta Ha ha http://www.facebook.com/pages/saving-sinners-ministries/136672089684572
The Irony in that.
Alas.. it seems the pond has been infiltrated by spam douchebags posting thinly veiled attempts to rank with google.
so far its good, but i found a similar concept like this here in the net but i forgot the URL of that
%5E I'm sure you did.:)
%5EThanks, No this was just vector here. Just using gradients.
great sign ... nice type!
The colour works really well, congrats.
Belated Thanks and Freddy.
Meant TAS and Freddy.
I am interested to buy this logo if its not already sold. Please contact me at [email protected]
Sorry Totalsid, it is Sold. But thanks for asking.
also seen on
Yes It is,.. they Stole it a few years ago. Notice how they had to use the same color scheme. This one has been ripped quite a few times.
excellent looking logo
I would be proud to use this logo on my business.
@RobertGoldring So have many others, without my permission. :(
