WOW. Give me vibes from The Fountain movie. Great piece.

Hey Milou. Thanks dude! I can't keep up. %3B-) I've just got 7 of my first 27 logos uploaded, and already replying to comments! Got to love it! And just found out that I need to include the typography if it's to considered for a gallery spot.

That's for the best welcome aboard Simon! Yes that's their rules, to have full set in the gallery.

Great. Now I've got to hire this movie, The Fountain. :-)

Thanks! Quite cool watching which logos people respond to. Sherbet, I've totally forgotten to get any work done today! All your fault! %3B-)

This is gallery material, maybe without the drop shadow.

Reply
Simon™ Mar. 11 '11

Thanks Jerron. Yeah, the drop shadow was totally unnecessary. I just wasn't able to find a background colour that went with the logo. Actually each wine cultivar has a different colour behind the foiled gold logo. Can you believe that I've got a printed sample of the label, but have never actually seen the darn thing on bottle?

Great stuff! I would absolutely love to see the foil printed version. You could probably shrink it a bit for display - to give it a bit more negative space to breathe. Wonderful job!

Great stuff, Simon!

looking great, Simon. perfect for a wine label. nice work.

Hi Lumavine. I have followed your good advice and shrunk it down a bit. The irony is that a friend advised me to keep the logos smallish within their frames, but I was worried at the last minute that the detail would get lost. A lot of my logos are 'illustrative' - many more to follow in the coming days...

Simon™ Mar. 11 '11

Thanks Mike! One of those late night magic moments when it all came together, but can't remember for the hell of me how I got there. %3B-)

%22...Inglewood always up to no good...%22 (2Pac f. Dr.Dre, California Love)

Simon™ Mar. 11 '11

Yeah, it's funny how we make up our own lyrics for parts we can't hear properly, and then are pissed at the singer when we find out it's not the way we imagined it. Like it's their fault. :-)

I think you'd get your ass kicked if this was a logo for any type of rapper! %3B-)

lecart Mar. 12 '11

This is looking great! Personally, I'm not a fan of the dropshadow. Cheers and Welcome here!

Reply
Simon™ Mar. 12 '11

Hey lecart. Drop shadow is no more! Just a lighter red against the background. Maybe just me eyes - but it's funny how I can still see a slight dark halo around the circle's edge? Optical illusion?

Reply
lecart Mar. 12 '11

Haha, I'm pretty sure there's a drop shadow, or hallow, however you want to call it. :D

Reply
firebrand Mar. 12 '11

You could also lose the lighter red circle Simon? just a thought.

hyperborea Mar. 12 '11

Great job indeed Simon! It has a feel of something that cames from 19th century, like vintage book illustration.

Reply
Simon™ Mar. 12 '11

Thanks hyperborea. Exactly that and more specifically from woodcut bookplates (ex libris). The owner's hallmark.

watermarker Mar. 13 '11

Very great! Some issue with the typo though, it looks a bit seperated... hm, maybe its just the size.

Reply
Simon™ Mar. 14 '11

Watermarker - it may look a little off, because the mark and type were never intended to sit next to each other. The actual wine label has them miles apart, at different sizes, and on different colour backgrounds, but I had to configure it differently to work for presentation purposes on LogoPond.

Reply
Simon™ Mar. 14 '11

I've made them the exact same red now, for those of you with eagle eyes! :-)

Simon™ Mar. 14 '11

David, awesome site by the way! Works like a dream.

devey Mar. 14 '11

Nice work! Your showcase is full of stuff that makes me want to work harder.

Thanks devey! 'Work harder'? Just had a look at your showcase. Wow! Looks like you need to slow down! Too good! :-)
