logomotive Feb. 01 '09

Thanks guys, you know the coolest part of this design is the fact that even though it's the same sharks flipped, One is viewed as the side fin and the other the top fin. The eyes are the only difference.

Mike, only you can achieve a logo as pure genius as this one.

I know this has nothing to do with the logo but aren't sharks not very intelligent? sharp sharks?**Nonetheless this is amazing as expected

This is really an AMAZING mark! Mike, you are insane...

logomotive Feb. 02 '09

Thanks guys, I guess sharks are considered smart. Ever heard of a pool shark or a card shark? pretty smart. I dunnknow.

Reply
logomotive Feb. 02 '09

Besides it can mean sharp (hip,clever,or acute) in other ways.

Reply
nido Feb. 02 '09

ive never heard of sharks being 'not clever'.. but my first impression would have been pool shark/card shark.. so works.

Reply
logotivity Feb. 02 '09

I don't know.. Thought I went to sea world 1 time and heard someone say sharks we're stupid, maybe my kid said that :X***

Reply
logomotive Feb. 03 '09

maybe they really are dumb? But I'm not going to test one to see :-)

THEArtistT Feb. 03 '09

It think card shark and pool shark is more about aggressiveness than smarts. It is about the bluff. Does that still work?

Reply
logomotive Feb. 03 '09

No not at all a pool shark and a card shark are knieving (however ya spell that word) and smart not so aggressive.

i see a couple of things, I first saw a chubby ninja star, but then it also resembles a ying yang symbol. kind of curious what the description will be. :P

mcdseven Feb. 10 '09

mark is absolutely fantastic... logotype is ok... considering you do some lovely custom jobs on logotypes I'd treat that the same. I would imagine the mark would look cool on a T Shirt... I would nearly go as far as saying this is one of the best marks I have seen on this site.

Reply
logomotive Feb. 10 '09

Thanks guys.*mcdseven, thanks bud, yeah expectations lol I got lazy on the type, but appreciate the observation. :-)

logomotive Feb. 28 '09

Thanks guys.*@mcdseven, you inspired me to update the type. Notice the counters in the a's and the eyes of the sharks. I think the type compliments the mark better now.

I know I commented, but I did not say how much I love this. Floated and faved. One of my favorite logos of all time.

How do you act in such cases? What if they have the nerve to say you stole it from them?

@Lecart, I called them immediatly and I am the original designer so like any case I fight it until the end. I just wish the rippers were rich. %22The Truth will set you free.%22

Mike I have the illustrator files that predate your upload at http://logopond.com/gallery/detail/52388 and have been using the sharpshark name for years, send me proof and a resonable case rather than calling me childish names. SEND me your vectors and prove it From my email in response.*

Reply
logomotive Nov. 18 '09

Prove it. was the end response. HA ME prove it now. been using it for years. HA HA HA

Reply
logomotive Nov. 18 '09

The funny thing is he asked ME to send him VECTORS. look at his logo inbelievable.

Reply
Chad Sanderson Nov. 18 '09

Is he saying HE designed it, or did someone else do it for him?

Reply
Chad Sanderson Nov. 18 '09

Of course either way it's ridiculous bs....

Reply
logomotive Nov. 18 '09

That was his email. I copy pasted it. The sad thing is I was cordial and polite and wanted to resolve this prior to posting live, but when I felt it might be going the other direction by girlfriends response and his... I decided to to make a statement and stand up for our rights... ENOUGH is ENOUGH.

brandsimplicity Nov. 18 '09

Oh my goodness Mike, that will teach you for being so damn good. The cheeky little f...er, he's more than likely some 15yr old in mummy's house...one day it will be easier to sue these trolls.

Hayes Image Nov. 18 '09

Who's he kidding? You tell at first glance that he's just used the 'Live Trace' function in Illustrator of a bitmap source i.e. above graphic. Check out the quality (or lack there of) on the eyes...low res trace.**His original logo%3B http://sharpsharkdesigns.com/images/change.png

Reply
Chad Sanderson Nov. 18 '09

While we're providing links- I went ahead and tried what Hayes said (if you don't mind me doing so Mike) and took the image straight off LP, copy and paste, then used the low res default live trace. here's what i got.**http://i42.photobucket.com/albums/e302/Chachinator/sharpshark.jpg**compare.

logomotive Nov. 18 '09

@ Hayes yeah the smoothnesss in vectors, yet I'm suppose to take my time now to prove to him the %22vector%22 work LOL. I'm just gonna get lawyer to handle it now since I did everything to avoid making an issue.**Chad NOT at all bro, I appreciate it very much.*

Reply
OcularInk Nov. 19 '09

Man, thieves just love to whore out your logos. Ok, so I'm guessing he has changed the logo now?

sorry to hear and see this Mike. Hopefully things get resolved. Keep us all up to date!

rudy hurtado Nov. 19 '09

Seems like you have a big target sign on your showcaese Mike, you shouldn't be doing beautiful work, so, IMO it's your own fault! good luck with your lawyer.

Reply
mfrank Nov. 19 '09

Mike..did he change the logo back on his site? I just visited it and your logo is no longer on there.

Reply
logomotive Nov. 19 '09

all I'm getting is a forbiddin 404 message. He also told me he changed logos and told me I have one week to provide him the proof or he's going to put logo back on. Is that not backwards r what. Now I have to while he sits on his ass with stolen design?? The nerve of people and very dumb move on his part now.
