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.

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.

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!
