Description: Reflecting Spier Wine Farm's holistic approach, this sparkling wine's filigreed gold symbol was inspired by the symmetry and balance of Buddhist mandalas. For a closeup, go to http://www.simonfrouws.com/images/mandala.jpg or see the packaging by clicking the 'as seen on' link below.

This is way too much for me, but it works very nice on the bottle.

Thanks everyone. I was debating whether to put it on LogoPond or not, because it blurs the boundary between design and illustration. Obviously not for use at small sizes!

Any chance of seeing a close up? Say a quarter of it?

I want to show it as it was on the packaging, as a full mandala. Out of interest, this was for a Limited Edition. Here's the more 'commercial' version, with a simplified coat-of-arms (although the foiling isn't perfect): http://www.wine.co.za/directory/winepicture.aspx?WINEID%3D24557

Thanks everyone! This took bloody ages to complete - about 16 working files, including one completely different option (with an historical slant) at the client's request.

Shanya, why do you have an animated gif for your avatar that shows drug use? It's really not something I'd chose to project a professional designer's image myself. Curious as to why you chose something like that.

In all modesty, I believe that my comments are mostly above average, which is fairly easy because that simply means you can come up with a proper English sentence and / or a thought of your own. %0D*%0D*Unlike all those people who try to use %22dvd spine%22 as pseudo running gag, I have published academic articles on films, been on DVDs and been quoted by media that are little more important than logopond.%0D*%0D*Do you believe we all can do without another %22dvd spine%22 nigga speak-burp by %22Joe Prince%22? I do.

If you could be just a little less vague, I'll try to answer your question. I hope you're not presuming racism on my part which is not the case. %0D*%0D*Concerning the logo: Yes, it is incredibly complex but I see no reason it shouldn't work (and it doesn't seem to be the standard trade mark logo). From the pack shot it's not visible, but I hope it gets printed with some kind of texture / embossed.

Well Simon it's like taking a bunch of tiny clever logos and rolling them all into one. Like the snowball effect.I don't know many if any that accomplish such a task.
