It's a great concept

yes, excellent concept!

THEArtistT Dec. 09 '08

This is fantastic but have you looked around to see if there are any similar designs out there? I would be surprised if there weren't any. But I would also be surprised if they are executed near as well as yours. Great job.

Very cool use of negative space. Very simple and clean looking too. Floated.**THEArtisT has a point though - I'd check for dupes.

siah-design Dec. 09 '08

Thanks reddskinn, jsae and ArtistT!**@Artistt: no, I haven't checked for similar designs yet. Their may be similar ideas out there, but using it to make a monogram of E.D. may be a little more unique... At least I hope so :)

I think you did a good execution, but the logo was created for %22ED Milan%22 by famous designer Gianni Bortolotti.**http://www.studio-bortolotti.it/ed.html

@kitchen Interesting. Never saw that one before. They are fairly different looking - but it is the same concept. It's a big world....

Brandsimplicity Feb. 11 '09

That is the first time I have seen that...I've been doing this for 15 year ...sometimes with designs such as these the simpleness of the design is also a designers curse...bugger it's been done before:D

Reply
THEArtistT Feb. 12 '09

ClimaxDesigns is absolutely right. When I went to college for commercial design, our instructor had an ego the size of DC. We only saw his work the whole time. I also went to school back in the 80s when commercial art being taught was new so there weren't a lot of books available (we used none) for instructors to access. I was never taught trends or styles and we only had SuperPaint and FreeHand to design in. The instructor would give you an entity name and you came up with something. If the instructor like it you got a good grade, if not you got a bad grade. You hoped your instructor had a good imagination and liked you. Until I started reading the Graphic Designer newsletter a couple of years ago, I had never heard of any 'famous' designers before.

Siah-Design Feb. 12 '09

Thanks for the support David, Jon, Fabian and Trish - appreciate it. **Indeed, (as stated before) I had not seen that logo before either. I'm finding out how the big the world really is... kinda depressing... :)**@Fabian: So true. Striving for simple logos can have it's drawbacks...**The concept is the same but I think there is enough difference between the two to keep it for another company, no? **I don't think the Ed Milana logo had anything to do with an electric outlet - I'm pretty sure that was just a simple monogram.

Check it out to be sure. I agree that if the industries are not related and they are used in different locations/countries, you should be good.

tomokeefe May. 05 '09

I'm late on this topic....*for starters it took me 1 google search to find the other logo so I find it hard to believe for one minute that Siah did not see this logo before. With that said...*When I look at both logos side-by-side I feel that the same designer did both. The over-all concepts are the same. 1 is more clever then the other. The ED – Elettro Domestici version is the more clever one. It feels that this logo shown here was a earlier version of the other logo. Unless Siah came out with his concept first I don't buy into that he never seen this before.**ok lets play pretend for a minute for the sake of discussion on Siah's logo. *I think it's distracting to have both plugs on each side. I feel that it could of been simplified and to me it doesn't read %22ED%22 it reads %22E%22 and if i were to take the plug to be %22D%22 then it would read as %22DED%22 **I think the Elettro Domestici logo concept much nicer and clever as well as brilliant. **Sorry.**Tom

%3E I don't buy into that he never seen this before.**In other words he is lying. Just say it as is. Damn the niceties. Go for the balls.

Reply
tomokeefe May. 05 '09

Epsilon--*Maybe he didn't in fact see it. I still find that hard to believe since the first thing i would of done in the beginning is do a Google search on the name to see if anyone else there did a %22ED%22 or %22ED ELECTRIC%22 logo. Why? Hmm it's called researching and at least to find out what others in the same space have done? Could i be wrong? YES! Could I be right? YES! Look at both side-by-side they look like the same person did both. Just one is better then the other in MY OPINION. %3B)**

Reply
theartistt May. 05 '09

tomokeefe, I designed a pretty complicated logo the other day. now I did do the research and unfortunately found an almost exact version already out there. I can tell you, for sure, there was absolutely no way I could have seen that other logo (a Japanese Military logo of all things). Yet I practically designed an exact replica. And that is not he only time that has happened with me. I designed a logo for a construction company and did a quick search through the trademark site and found the exact same concept (not as well executed) used by a spa in the same damn town. **This is a very simple concept and design. I stated above I would have been surprised if the idea hadn't already been designed. I would bet there are more than what you can find through a simple internet search, actually. Yes, Siah should have done some research before presenting this logo, but you are deliberately being divisive by accusing Siah of knowingly copying anyone else's design. This kind of thing happens all the time and it will happen to you if it hasn't already.

Reply
Siah-Design May. 05 '09

Thanks for the support, Trish. Appreciate it.**I had no idea the other logo existed until after I had done this one. I should have done more extensive research but blast, the world is BIG.**The client never used this logo so in fact it is currently NOT in use. I always strive for original work and I think. When someone showed me the other concept I was shocked. I do agree with Tom Okeefe that his version is probably better as it is more simplistic.**Tom, please give me a break though - I honestly had never seen that other logo before.

ok Siah--*If you never seen it before then fine. done. **Logomotive...zipit. **theartistt--*%22deliberately being divisive by accusing Siah of knowingly copying anyone else's design.%22*-What I said was that i find it hard to believe since it took me seconds to find it when I searched the name. I also stated that I could be wrong. **So without sounding like a big mean jerk I have very strong opinions about stuff like this. I'm not new to the game I'm going on about 16yrs and when I see something like this I do get pretty annoyed. **Also you will be surprised what could of happen if both companies ran with the logo. Oh the legal battles is something you would never want to have to deal with. the money, stress, and time it will take to end the legal horror it could bring. **Your right sometime designers come up with something that someone else did without any knowledge of either. I understand that. All I pointed out is that I searched for the name and found that logo before Siah's logo and within the first couple of results. It was that simple. That's all. So in MY OPINION I found it hard to believe that I was the only person that found it and or thought this.**for the record I CAN BE WRONG! **:) How's that? better? Cool. Done.**--Tom

theartistt May. 06 '09

Tom, it's cool. I accused a Logopond member of a rip once and to my embarrassment found he had been ripped, not the other way around. I'm just a bit more careful about such things now. I mean the community here at Logopond is pretty tight. Speaking of research, for example, reading some posts around Logopond would have made that obvious. And the question of this, Siah's, design and the other one had already been discussed in this thread. That is why it appeared to me (and others) that the way you phrased your initial post was deliberately divisive.**And for the record, several of us have been in the business longer than you have. Logomotive Mike for one. And I would have to say Mike knows just a little bit about being ripped off. Read around and you will see.

tomokeefe May. 06 '09

theartistt --*I would HOPE people have been in the business longer then me. I didn't say that thinking or assuming that I have been in the business longer then everyone on this site. LOL!!!!!**I know this topic was discussed regarding the other logo. Right above in this thread it was mentioned. If %22YOU%22 read the first few words on my comment it should of made it clear that %22I'm late on this topic....%22**Also I speak from experience as well... The legal battles can be pretty intense.**Like i said if he never seen the other logo until someone brought it to his attention on this site, then fine. He never found it and everyone else did. Ok I get it. That's cool. **It's Dropped. *****

Lookie, lookie .. just bumped into %22Electrical Digest logo%22:http://img23.imageshack.us/img23/4388/electricaldigest.jpg while flipping through LogoLounge 2 book. So is it an egg and Elettro Domestici is a chicken or is it the other way around ?
