I like this one as well, especially the type. I'm just not sure about going with a dark background. I always like the look of printed materials (like business cards) with a light BG.**There's a pile of alternates %22here too%22:http://southcreative.com/concepts.jpg

typeface is really good! i wonder how the icon looks like in monotone/bw? or it's not a requirement?

B%26W is not a huge concern, but I am working on it. The mark would only be printed single colour on an envelope, everything else will be colour. **%22B%26W early concept here%22:http://southcreative.com/sc-bw.gif

This looks really nice, you did a good job, however you may want to alter or rethink this concept. I have seen it done a few times such as one on logopond here http://logopond.com/gallery/detail/4226. they look very similar to me at least. I like though.

Thanks logomotive. I appreciate your input** I was aware that circular logos with overlapping elements have been done in various ways before, but I've always been a big fan of them. People seem to respond well to this style.**This mark originally started out as an abstract S and C, and I was trying to emphasise the southern hemisphere on a globe as part of it (since South Creative is located in Australia). It didn't work out, and a refined version turned out like this:)

Okie dokie then, just thought I'd let you know in case you may have not seen that style. Good luck with your end results.

Looks familiar. Not saying mine was the first. But how many of these do we need featured?

Also reminds me a lot of the 'Total' logo.*http://www.uk.total.com/*

Sorry, but I agree with the others. The type solution is nice, but this icon looks like all the other ones out there.

Funny thing is there are about 4 or 5 that I know of here on the pond. :) Of course some of the color schemes or shapes may be different, however the concept is still the same.**%22Seker1%22:http://logopond.com/gallery/detail/4226 (Mine)*%22Seker2%22:http://logopond.com/gallery/detail/4179 (Mine)*%22DynamicsLab%22:http://logopond.com/gallery/detail/22630*%22Linguafon%22:http://logopond.com/gallery/detail/8503*%22Kart%22:http://logopond.com/gallery/detail/7084*%22Aramova%22:http://logopond.com/gallery/detail/4734*%22Igalia%22:http://www.igalia.com/ (Former Feature on the Pond)*

i'm beginning to think %22circular ring%22 marks like this will be the next 'globe'. I think AT%26T is due for another rebranding in about....a week...hehehe.**@trevc, nice execution of the mark though for %22this type%22 of symbol. as long as you like it, that's what counts.

Thanks to everyone for the comments and criticisms.**Artboy: The Total logo is interesing. I had some early concepts that were _very_ similar to that, when the S was still part of the design.**I've had a really good response to the logo (especially from clients and potential clients), so overall I'm not too worried if it's considered a common style/theme, etc.**admarcbart: I'd spotted Igalia ages ago, but hadn't seen your Seker logos. They're fantastic.**I'm glad to see a positive response to the type. I was nervous about making those changes.*

Hi! This is my first comment on logpond.*The logo at first glance resembles firefox, maybe because of the colours more than the form. It also reminds me of %22total%22
