As seen on:
holy moly, what a concept!! hahaha i love it! - great job josiah
@relevant.. hahahahha nice %3B)
@Relevant: lol - I like your way of thinking
Crisp and clean mark! Extra cudos for comming up with a new :), :0, %3B-). Never seen that one b4.
Great design usually comes out when having fun... Or not? Wait? What? :(:
it's so simple and obvious that it's genius.
Very clever. LOL @ Relevant's comment. :-P
Thanks for the comments everyone! %3B)
I thought I'd commented on this. Tremendous!
Hah, clever :)) There is a theatre here in Bulgaria that uses a simillar logo :))
Siah, I love a lot of your designs, however you may want to fix this one by simply retitling the piece as %22bipolar%22, since, as someone on Smashing Magazine article pointed out:**%22Schizophrenia has nothing to do with multiple personalities or any kind of mood disorder that could be indicated by the :): symbol...%22 -Alicia
@onesummer: Yea, I've received dozens of comments and messages from offended people about this logo. I finally took the time to revise it. Changed it from %22schizophrenic%22 to %22bipolar%22. Its not worth offending people when its just for a fictional logo. **Am I politically correct, now? :)
ha, yeah. didn't offend me or anything though. I think people were just jealous because it was such a clever concept, and wished they had come up with it %3B)
I thought I've already faved it? Or? Still good ! :D
HA! Too funny! :)
%5E..or sad... %3B)
%5EHA! too Funny! ..or sad... %3B)
%5EHA! too Funny! ..or sad... %3B) Nice one!
Damn... %5E%5E(Sorry, my browser totally flaked there...) :)
siah - It's a very clever design, and political correctness is definitely in the eye of the beholder. Having worked on ad campaigns for bipolar medications I can tell you that a lot of bipolar patients are pretty sensitive about their condition, and deep depression and suicide rates are pretty high among that patient population. Who knows how they'd actually react to this logo - I don't think it's overtly offensive - it could be a breath of fresh air to them.
Thanks for the kind comments again people. :)**@sdijock: Thanks for the comment. I used to have this logo titled as, %22Schizophrenic%22 but I literally had dozens of people contacting me how they were offended and that it was not accurate and that I should change it to %22Bipolar%22. Apparently schizophrenia is the inability to decipher between reality and fantasy. **I would like to think that people who suffer from a bipolar disorder would smile at this one instead of frown...
have seen this concept already. But I guess it is yours %22Siah-Design%22%0D*%0D*http://www.logomoose.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/01/schizophrenic.jpg
@premal123 Yup, I had the word changed from %22schizophrenic%22 to %22bipolar%22 as that was a more accurate match for the concept.*
i love the concept.. but here is something similar. http://logooftheday.com/2008-11-22-schizophrenic/
%5Esame designer %3B)
%5E yeah, haha
2 in 1 people suffer from bipolar disorder.
%5Ehah... good one Roy... understated as always...
Thanks guys. LOL @ Roy :)****And just to clarify things again.** This logo was originally titled, %22Schizophrenic%22 and was sold on BrandStack a while back. But due to dozens of people contacting me offended that it didn't represent the schizophrenic disorder accurately I changed the title to bipolar for my portfolio.*
i liked it then - i like it now :)
I always love this one!!
Really good symbolism! It took me a couple seconds to get it, and I was really happy once I did.
%5E Me too, and then I was really sad when I realized my ideas will never be this good.
I instantly started laughing when I saw this. Hilarious!
one of the cleverest logos on this pond... would be perfect for an advertising campaign to highlight bi-polar.
This sucks, I hate you Josiah.
Hey, I can do it, too :): see? I've seen it then and now, and I still love it. Good job!
Thanks again guys! Love the hate, Mike. :)
worst thing ever....I LOVE IT!
Great! Trash! :):
very clever. I like it.
Great idea! I know what is about (my close friend...) so I understand and praise simple clear idea and like it a lot!
This is the best logo concept of the year so far. Brilliant!
lol awesome! Great concept!
One of the best logos and concept I have seen for a while. Congrats!
A friend of mine had the same idea, apparently before this one.**http://cubbu.deviantart.com/art/HugMe-68832051
Hm, that is similar and was uploaded before this one. But, this is just one website. I'm assuming this design could've been uploaded somewhere else by Siah prior to putting it here.
Like the simple things. Turned horizontally should work good enough. The smile...good day, solar seal today, HAND, solar tone 7, perfect for healing. By
Very well executed. Beautiful! :)
creatively use of smiley for bipolar.
Just occurred to me a more ironic name might be %22Bitpolar'
i must say - bipolar as i %22am%22and being much more than that :): that this logo was GREAT to see. i was going to speak about living with bipolar disorder in a big christian swedish conference, since i%B4m a writer. when I %22accidentally%22 saw your logo on my way there, it was only liberating, cool and fun, to see my feelings expressed in one single symbol/sign. way to go! thanks! /bipopular
We like it
Very clever. Good job.
back in 2001, I made the same logo/design for art class. It was just the 2 faces tho, to me it meant just happy and sad. I wasn't thinking about bipolar when I made it. Glad to see someone was thinking the same thing..
simple and elegant
great simple design, well done
