very nice! i wonder how this would look if the water was just barely dripping out/off the bowl? like the color scheme too, very tranquil!

Type08 Dec. 18 '08

It's MOVING not SIPPING water! Water is very precious thing, you know? Just kidding... Wanted to keep it 'tranquil' as you said, that's why I didn't do it... Thanks!

The idea is nice. But the mark that is shaped exactly like this is routinely and actively used by a contact lenses industry. I'd seriously consider tweaking the shape to be more square like, or at the very least rounding the corners.

what you say about the positive version?

Reply
Type08 Jun. 30 '09

T8, Farmill, LED, Chic and Toko, thanks for looking in. *Toko, if you look close enough you'll see that the bowl is not quite white, it has sort of 'glass effect' and that way it works on white background as well. It looks even hotter that way, maybe I'll post it soon... :)

This is great. The fact you have the water moving left instead of right adds a bit of surprise. Brilliant.

JF Jan. 12 '10

Type08....so, which Club 100 are you talking about?

Reply
Type08 Jan. 12 '10

Jan, thanks a lot!*JF, that is something I have been trying to suggest here - The Club 100 logos - logos that got 100 or more votes (support from 100 members). I have noticed that there is not so many of those, maybe something like 30 or 40 so far, so they really present the cream of the logo design here on the Pond, or should I say, the most beautiful lotuses around! %3B)*

Reply
JF Jan. 12 '10

Sounds like a great idea, but chances are people could abuse it in my opinion. Too easy to fake. For instance: lbbrand. Most favorited member -- ? Suspected to be gaming the system by the site owner %5Bposted in forum recently%5D. It comes to mind because it's recent memory. Regardless, if it could be foolproof/corruption-proofed, that would be great.

Reply
JF Jan. 12 '10

P.S.: This logo is worthy of a 'club 100' mention, in my opinion. Good work.

Reply
Type08 Jan. 12 '10

Well floating so far has been proofed, I didn't see a chance to vote for anything twice so in that means it would work. Different thing is opening multiple accounts and voting for your own logo or asking people offline to do that even if they don't like it, so I guess there are ways... Lame ways, but ways... Anyhow, it would still be interesting to see them at one place, 100 members is a really huge support (anywhere, not just here)...

Reply
Houston-we Jan. 12 '10

Alen, I think it's a nice idea. About the lbbrand - he favorited 200 showcases - that's why he's in that top.**As for the idea, I like it. I think it would be nice to have a way to see all of those, not just 10 most floated. It wouldn't be easy to abuse, since it could be done that a logo must have 100 float AND be selected to the gallery to become one of the club...**Great logo btw.

Reply
Wizemark Jan. 12 '10

Great logo and great idea.

Reply
JF Jan. 12 '10

Actually, Houston-we...unfortunatetly, I disagree. You're the top 'favorites'-having member%3B you have nearly 162 pages of 24 favorites on each -- totaling 3878 favorites, and you're listed below as having 3878 favorites in the 'Most Favorites' category, a separate category from the 'Most Favorited Member' category %5Bwhere lbbrand is %231%5D...

Reply
Houston-we Jan. 12 '10

hey JF, favorting logos and showcases are different :)

Reply
JF Jan. 12 '10

You know, you bring up a good point. So, if I'm a 'favorited member' that means I favorited the showcase of _others_, rather than have my owm showcase favorited? I got the impression from the comment the site owner made on %22this thread%22:http://logopond.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id%3D3801 that lbbrand had created fake accounts and favorited their own showcase to get ahead there.

Reply
Houston-we Jan. 12 '10

JF you're right. It's a wrong title.

Reply
firebrand Jan. 12 '10

I think all of those stats could do with updating. The most favourited member is ridiculously manipulated. And it seems Antiparticle is the best logo ever designed which is not the case IMO.

Reply
Type08 Jan. 12 '10

Wize, Dalius and JF, thanks peeps!*Roy, I agree with you!

Reply
JF Jan. 12 '10

%5EAgree with Firebrand. Because 'Most Favorited Member' would usually mean %5Bto me%5D the member who has the showcase that most people have favorited, how about calling it 'Most Favorite Members' %3C-- there's an 's' there, and no 'd' there...?
