Description: I have a few reasons why sometimes I design fictitious logos. 1. when inspiration hits me I don't want to forget about it. 2.Usually whenever your thinking of something, so is someone else.3. because I enjoy it.4 it gets my creative juices flowing.5. It may come in useful in the future.

I just picked up on another factor that makes this logo great! It's the type! The slightly rounded ends of the serifs complement the tip of the elephant's trunk, perfectly.

Reply
logomotive Nov. 15 '09

%5E I can see that but that does not bother me as much as that can be purely coincidental. The other and that it was allowed is beyond me. In fact I almost feel it is a poke.

This logo haunts my dreams! Really wonderful work, and thanks to your description, I'm going to keep on designing my fictitious logos to keep the ol' creative juices flowing. %3B-)

Reply
logomotive Jul. 05 '11

Thanks peeps, but there is a HUGE difference between fictional logos and actual client work. It's night and day really. This just helps to get the juices going. The Real deals give you nightmares and put knots in your stomach, if you know what I mean...

Reply
JF Jul. 05 '11

I agree, wholeheartedly. And, the biggest pain ever that I had to design for, the biggest client? Myself. Horrible stress. When it's the 'real thing' it's far more risky.

Reply
Sean Heisler Jul. 05 '11

Ha! I don't recall having read your description before! I agree on all points, ditto. It's fun and good creative exercise, and have obviously done it myself, but it's a hell of a lot easier to make shit up!

Reply
tinocordes Sep. 13 '11

Thats so true! And the worst part is when you have worked so hard and finally make a good logo, but the client dosn't see it :D

man your so right about making fictious logos , fake it till you make it, and its good practice and have an abundance of ideas to put into use in the future.

Reply
logomotive Nov. 03 '15

The problem is everyone wants the same WOW result. Does not always happen in Logo Design.

Reply
logomotive Nov. 03 '15

Hey all you India Peeps! Designers? show some Respect! http://elefontdesign.com/

Reply
Supamario Nov. 03 '15

The wow effect is what makes me design. I aim to get that out of all of my work a sort of aha when the viewer finds it out. But your right it sometimes doesnt happen

Reply
logomotive Nov. 03 '15

Might be useful in the future.

ru_ferret Nov. 03 '15

I face the same problem from time to time. They want their logo to be as clever as Pelican, for example.
