logotomy May. 18 '09

Funny. With a little bit of perspective, in the continuity of the shadow, you could draw a grave with the %22i%22. That could be awesome!

LOL :D cool, the moved %22i%22 is awesome. Usually I don't like shadows and gradient in logos but it's works good, perfect.

Thanks everyone, glad you like it! It was a fun one to do. A red dot on the i would be pretty funny, might try it but I think it would pull it into a different realm and pull away from the sheer simplicity as well. Funny though! Thanks again, everyone!

very good man! especially that comics shadow:)

josephghayes May. 19 '09

very nice. seems like the i is backwards though. like the dot should be on the right. either way, it's a brilliant concept.

Reply
tass May. 19 '09

i like the concept.*but since i has a shadow, wouldn't be required that all the letters had one?

Reply
ethereal May. 19 '09

That is a nice avatar strizhart!**It's true that technically it would seem the other letters would have cast shadow as well but I think having the shadow just on the %22i%22 puts the focal there, it's just playful abstraction. :) As to the direction of the i, I tried it both ways and this felt most comfortable for whatever reason! Thanks again!

TreeWalker May. 21 '09

sorry, but… why? *what is the logo for? it doesn't do anything for me. it's just an i on its side, so?*a logo should evoke something, should say something about the company or product it is representing.

Reply
ethereal May. 21 '09

Dude, pump your brakes, it's just a concept. It's just an idea I had, this place is fun, we're all having fun here. Maybe this could work for something like a skateboard company or a club?

I don't agree with Treewalker but I too don't get it. It's nice to have a play and try new things but it may need some work to be commercially viable.

Reply
ethereal May. 21 '09

%5E Absolutely and that's all this is, is practice. I solicited comments and I'm working on turning this into something viable.

Reply
ethereal May. 22 '09

%5E I know exactly what you are saying but when I tried pulling the L's together it looked squirrelly, like the L's suddenly didn't look like two L's anymore due to the i laying down the way it is. Hard to explain. For some reason with the i laying down like that it's messing with the visual spacing and it just seemed comfortable like this. I'll take a look at it again though, thanks for the comment.

yeah really nice, clever, I like it! alot

TreeWalker May. 22 '09

I'm sorry if I upset anyone, I guess I should change my comment to %22I love it, it's my all time fav%22 and not offer any criticism - be like everyone else. Or just keep my mouth shut and go elsewhere.

Reply
ethereal May. 22 '09

%5E Here's the problem, TreeWalker - you took the extreme route. Criticism is fine here, in fact it's great. But it's the way you did it. The concealed %22cursing%22 using random characters, the %22so%22 comment, just your whole demeanor. Why not express your opinion in a more %22constructive%22 manner? If you sound offensive you're going to get equal responses back. That's all.

Holy shit!! I have never seen that before in my life, I swear to god. I just found this place and joined on May 14. Guess that doesn't exonnerate me but I give you my word I have never seen that. Like I keep saying, everything has been done before. Damn. It's even an %22i%22 in that mark. Well, I am sure I'll be grilled by some for this one, but I swear on all three of my children's lives I've never seen that mark. Oh, well. :(

I wouldn't have guessed you had, it only has about 100 views. I didn't remember it until I saw it in his showcase today. I was just throwing it out there so you knew :)

Reply
ethereal May. 25 '09

Thanks, lundeja. Yikes, it's sucks when that happens though. Something similar to this happened to me before too. Everything has been done, I swear! This happened to me with Logomotive and he said %22I guess great minds think alike!%22 (not to sound arrogant!)

Reply
TreeWalker May. 25 '09

Okay, first of all, I will once again apologize for hurting anyone's feelings - it was unintentional. ClimaxDesigns I was not concealing any %22cursing%22 with random characters - that was simply an incompatibility between browsers or something. Evidently the system does not like having a comma placed after the word but. *Secondly, I was not trying to be offensive I was merely hoping to have the artist give me some indication (defense if you will) of the reasoning for the logo. I perhaps should have left the %22so%22 out of the comment and should have elaborated on my remark. *In an effort to avoid offending anyone else on this site in the future I would ask that the moderator or owner of the site remove my profile from their system at the earliest. In the interim I will refrain from critiquing any further. I wish you all well in your endeavors.

ethereal May. 26 '09

Awe, come on, man, just relax. I don't think anybody is offended. Everything is cool. If you have an issue with someone or are looking to critique them then just do it in a straight forward way. Everything's good my man, don't worry.

Hi mabu - I know! It was mentioned up above a few posts back. Technically it doesn't clear me but I found and joined Logo Pond a few days after you posted the impotence concept. I swear I hadn't seen it before I did this, obviously I wouldn't have done this had I seen that! Amazing how this happens. It's crazy how it's the letter i in both! I really like your impotence concept though, nice job. Great minds think alike. %3B)

Reply

Thanks, guys! Really appreciate it.**Dario: Interesting idea but I think because the %22i%22 is lying down dead that the stronger message is %22killed.%22 Killer could work however, implying that a murder had happened. This is the strangest thing trying to describe this! :)

%5E What do you mean? What's an exact copy? Very familiar with C%26G but have no idea what you are talking about. Post something if you can.

Reply
ethereal Feb. 11 '10

I just looked this up and it's a book, which looks very cool by the way. I found some examples and seen one for %22dead%22 with a %22d%22 lying on it's side, is that what you mean? If so, I don't see the problem here. You said this is an exact copy of something, that's a pretty strong thing to say and to me you mean in that book there is a Killed concept EXACTLY like this. Show to me if you can. But if it's the Dead thing there isn't an issue here in my mind. The %22i%22 in this concepts is an abstract figure/person. I see many other examples of word play concepts in that book that remind of many concepts I see hear too, so word play is nothing new and they are all based on a similar vain of thinking.

ethereal Apr. 03 '10

Thanks, guys!**@ Alex: I see where you are going with that. Here I go again for 10th time. Look, what do you do here? Just like others who have done simple, fun word play ideas like this they find something similar to it and cry rip off. Word play is so generic that it's tough to pinpoint if you are infringing on an original idea. In terms of word play like this I think the concept has to be about EXACT to become a real issue. Word play like this goes waaaay back, as referenced earlier in this thread. You know how many logos with a letter laying on it's side have been brought to my attention over the years? I hadn't ever seen one where it was an %22i%22 that represented the human figure, so the concept probably can stand (no pun intended). Every few months I have to go through this, it's %22killing%22 me. :)

Reply
epsilon Apr. 03 '10

Sean, you totally don't see where I was going :)**I asked because there is a peculiar connection between the handedness of a person and the way this person selects between two equal options involving left and right. I am right-handed and I would've dropped /i/ the other way, hence my original question.

Reply
ethereal Apr. 03 '10

%5E Ha ha ha, I see, Alex, that's hilarious!!!!!! Sorry. I thought I was getting hammered again, man. If you look at the history of this thread I've had to fend off a lot of stuff, but that's what happens with simple logos most of the time. Please accept my apologies, Alex, I thought you were insinuating something. I don't have the nickname %22Paranoid%22 for nothing. I am right handed. It's funny, someone else mentioned before that they would have dropped the i the other way too, maybe you are all right! :) Thanks, Alex, much appreciated, my man.

Deadly simple and really effective. So which letter is the killer? :D

Reply
ethereal May. 23 '10

Thanks. Evidence points to %22k%22 being the culprit but many theories say that %22d%22 was the shooter, perched inconspicuously over there in the grassy knoll beyond the %22e.%22 Others say a man named %22Ed%22 is the killer and say he left a message at the crime scene by aligning what appears to be the word %22productions%22 underneath his name.
