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 :).

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

Yup negitive space is a often overlooked tool in the tool box. Love the mate-up of the mark to the shape of the "S" too.

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.

Ok, I see, it's a nice detail :)

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 :-)

Reply
logomotive

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.

FWIW, Crowdspring removed the stolen logo and will not sell. One win for us... Yeah.

Very nice.

Reply
logomotive

^THAT 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.

"Where" is an easy question: http://www.logomaid.com/detail.php?uid=8612

%@logomotive- 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:-)%

Reply
logomotive

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.

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 "close" and is an obvious ripoff; 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, "oww my faaaace, here's ur logo back sorry".

Reply
logomotive

What does this have to do with Cinemas anyhow? Geez! Pay up people and you can have it.

@Jared, yes on the first question. And perhaps on the second :) No response so far and I'm a very impatient person.

SANDHYA

The design agency that Sangam hired probably ripped it from here is what I hear.

Reply

Sandhya, Well they have not responded, so I might have to do some digging here. Thanks.

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 :)

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.
