Very nice idea, really like the wine splash.**The illlustration of it could be a little cleaner, a bit more graphic and simple in detail, this I believe would make this into a really nice logo.*The '1689' needs some tightening up in terms of tracking and also spacing within the box.**Anyway I'll quit wine-ing (sorry that was bad).**Nice concept, well done. %3D)*

Hello Raja, just wanted to say you are probably the best designer I've ever seen... Also, the FAQ on your site is hilarious!%0D*%0D*I've been using Photoshop to design logos since I was a kid, but have recently got hold of Illustrator and it has taught me a whole new way to design. Your logos are an inspiration!

This is more or less offtopic again, but the comments section here seems the most popular place. In case you don%B4t know it already, you might want to check out http://www.tineye.com for comparing images. The database is still somewhat limited, but better than nothing.

Tice Apr. 27 '10

You're welcome!*Reason I rate it this high is because of it's unique style I havn't seen before. It could be even higher if you put the year '1689' a bit higher in the retangle as mentioned by someone else before %3B-)

This logo got over 30 000 views. I just noticed the little counter and had some thoughts...

On thing is for sure, being a good designer requires an open and constantly changing mind. Seeking knowledge everyday, and a self realization that how you think today, will not be how you think tomorrow is a part of the journey.

Because clearly looking at this logo now (after having being published in many books, blogs and articles...along the way being copied many times too) I see that there is absolutely nothing here I would ever do again, and the execution, in hindsight is very weak.

But what do I know, I was more of a programer / coder at the time of designing that logo, go figure.
