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?

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 :-)

logomotive May. 29 '09

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.

logomotive Aug. 02 '09

%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.

%[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

Reply
logomotive Aug. 02 '09

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.

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.

@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.
