Float? (Floaters: 78 )

Add to Pad (In 43 Pads )

Description: Maximalist and illustrative logo for a fish market that captures the spirit of the nautical and maritime aesthetic. There is a fish shape in the negative space within the bowl of the number 5. Type is custom for "Pier" and also the number 5, which is hand-rendered to look like it was painted on a wooden sign with a very wide, worn-out, thick-bristled brush.

WOW, thanks so much guys for all the warm words, floats, and lightning-quick gallerization! I really wasn't expecting that. Thanks, David!*@Lumavine, LOL, yeah, I really wanted to put everything but the kitchen sink in here, but I figured I'd stop at the life preserver, rope, wooden sign, custom type, and negative space gimmick :D I kept getting ideas of more things to put in here, and I physically had to tell myself, %22NO MORE.%22 But, as maximalist as this is, I really do think it helps give the viewer a chance to casually discover the fish, without being hit over the head with %22THIS IS A NEGATIVE SPACE GIMMICK YOU ARE EXPERIENCING.%22*@Sean, thanks, man! I really wanted the fish to seem to appear naturally, rather than looking too forced.
