Really like where this is going. I think more black on the Belly and less of underbelly to shape the C better and maybe a little less detail might try to bring the legs to ground be more solid. I also don't think you need the type lines maybe solid there. looking good.

Hey, Mike, thanks for the comment. I'm sorry, I should have made a better indication that this is a rejected proposal. All good points you made though and I appreciate it. I never got the chance to perfect it and was bummed they didn't go this way!! They preferred the other one I posted in which they liked the %22seal%22 look and the subtle Alligator eyeball in their symbol. One cool thing though is they are going letterpress that seal. Thanks, bud.

I know Mike is the logo master, but I have to disagree. I think showing the underbelly, and repeating the line motif in the type really give this mark a lot of character. Plus, depicting the underbelly of the 'gator is an unexpected twist. That makes it unique. Nice one. This would've looked amazing leterpressed.

Thanks, Trish and Jon!**@Jon: I pushed hard to get them to go this way but I think they felt it was too whimsical, which is why I liked it, it's supposed to be a bit kooky with the underbelly and awkward disposition of the croc. Glad you like it, Jon, thanks.

What's the nature of their films and TV productions? If they're all sooper-serious documentaries and news, then yeah, I can see why this might be regarded as too whimsical. Nevertheless, it's a great mark. Hey, look at it this way, if the band Cannibal Croc ever approaches you to design a logo, you've already got a head start.

:) I can't recall exactly but do remember them mentioning something about a game show of some sort as a future production. So yeah, I felt the fun quality was good, but they wanted something more like a seal, something a tad more formal, for whatever reason.

Whoa, thanks guys! I appreciate the gallery spot! Yeah, Bernd, I got on here this afternoon and saw it up there and thought, wow, that presentation looks a bit boring. Hopefully this works better, it's more like their brand. Thanks!

Really nice Sean. Love the type and how the fill carries through to the mark. It seems I\'ve missed a couple of your lovelies.
