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.

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...

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.

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!
