Very cool. Saw the dp right away. Didn't see the GJ until you pointed it out, and while the J is a bit of a stretch, it still works.

Hey dOc, back with a vengeance!*I see a music note in the centre, with radiating sound waves. Genius.**I like the rough edge because it doesn't compete with the motif. DIN is one of my favourites too. Good work

Hey, thanks everyone. Yea, the 'J' is definitely a stretch. It was pretty much a happy accident. :-) Roy, glad you noticed the music note. Client noticed that as well an d noted that the overall shape of the icon looks like a CD as well. This one was all luck. :-P

Love the color(s), very nice incorporation of *d* and *p*, soundwaves as well as the notes. Strong icon and very good overall apperance. The only thing I think doesn't fit too well into the composition %3B) is the font of *PROJECT*. I think it's because of its height. A little lower font may be does better. Maybe. :)

VERY NICE! I saw the %22D%22 and %22P%22 right off. It's got a very nice artsy style yet still has a bit of a techy feel...the icon almost looks like a sound board knob. GREAT JOB!

i dont know much about music so i never spotted the notes... i do like this but if i was to be nit picky.. id say that at first i thought the mark was a 'target' you know?.. like you get from a snipers gun.. %26 'The David Project' was like a cool name like 'The Bourne Ultimatum' .. haha.. maybe climaxdesigns could have it... for when he's had enough of us all %26 decides to take us all down.. one at a time!... 'The David Project'... 'all he wanted was a logo site.. but now.. he's got you in his sight'.. straight to dvd**%26 the other thing was bud.. did you originally upload the mark in white?... i dont like the minty color.. but thats a personal taste.. **one day i was walking... aaahhhh leave it!

Kevin, it kind of reminds me of those old %2245%22 adapter thingies that wone would place in the center of record player to convert to larger records. Anyone know what I'm talking about? OLD times :-)

Holy COW!! Thanks, everyone for all the positive feedback. Lots of hidden secrets in this one, I guess. Client said they could even see a record player. :-) Crazy!

Every time I see this I see a target. I actually think if you completely used music notation characters for your letters (d %26 p) rather than those simplified letterforms, the logo would hit the nail on the head.

Nice one my friend.

it's like you're destined to make this logo just for the particular client. that's just amazing!

Thanks, guys!! :-)**@ kult house : Good point, kult. However, I love that the abstractness of the icon has created so much creative thought. That definitely helps in the branding process. Right?

I love it. I have to say though I can't really see the D, P, G %26 J.

Reply
OcularInk Oct. 07 '07

Thanks, erika!! If you look closely, the concentric circles and the vertical bars create the lowercase d and p. The 'G' and 'J' is a little harder to spot. Especially the 'J'. But it's there. Keep looking. :-)

Of course, once I work out how to put it on here! (I'm a newbie)%0D*Wasn't meant as a negative comment, everyone gets ideas from somewhere (conciously or not), that's exactly why this sites like this exist%3B so people can come for inspiration. Was seriously wondering if Ocularlnk had seen the pixellogo design and got the concept from there or not. Simple question.

%22that's exactly why this sites like this exist%3B so people can come for inspiration%22.**Oh, thanks for pointing that out, I only signed up 2 years ago. Ok not busting your balls it's just that Ocularink clearly wasn't inspired by the pixellogo design and there are subtler ways of making an introduction.**

Glad to know your heart was in the right place, Peter. But it did come across as an accusation. Roy (firebrand) is right. I was not inspired by the pixellogo design. Cheers!
