Lets Discuss

I really like the colors and mark but why is it a bird? Is there something I'm not seeing? Also the placement of the colors should be more evenly placed to the tip ofthe wing, and some of the stripes jut out more than others.

penflare, is it suppose to be a toucan? if it is, isn't the beak suppose to have the color.

Great idea, though for it to be recognisable as a Toucan, the beak needs to be way more pronounced. Don't exactly need colour imo. Have a quick look on google images bud...

Make it bigger still dude, also think the beak should join smoothly ith the top of the head. They'm all beaks them Toucan's am ay they Nav?

Come to think of it, it would work ideally to put the colour in the beak rather than the body. That would strengthen the concept even further...

that's what my thought is, if you make the beak almost obnoxiously big, make it flow smoothly in to the head, and simulate the tip of the paint brush like nido mentioned, the toucan would show through much stronger.%0D*%0D*it's a really nice concept penflare, but for a toucan i think it's all in the beak.

Nice idea, Sean. It reminds me of the old Guinness toucan posters - google it to find out. The beak does need a tweak though like Gareth just said.

Oh wow now I understand why it's a bird lol. I didn't recognize it as a toucan at all. The beak still needs work though. I agree with what gyui and gareth said though, put the color in the beak.

looks more like a dodo bird to me. I also agree toucans beaks are colored no?

Floated for an excellent, original idea. The above comments about body and beak are probably correct, however.

Really enjoyed seeing your development on this one. Great job, Sean. Now, re-upload on Incspring and up your price already. The world will never know what logo design is really worth if you and others keep selling yourselves short. You're designs are worth more. :-D
