Description: Silver Squid is a London based Internet Developers Company. The briefing was to get a logo with a dominant squid, showing a symbiosis from organic into pixel and should be recognizable without the silver squid text/type. The target would be all the internet & technology audience. The identity solution was a one color logo with intentional large proportional differences between the logo and type. The Q tail enhanced the aquatic feeling of the squid movement induced by the tentacles.

Does anyone else see a girl with windswept hair here? Was that intended? Or is it just me?

I'm sorry, but this logo scares me.

Looks like a giant octopus monster, coming for you. Actually, for me :(

excellent - very unique - what's the typeface?

Thanks for all the feedback. The typeface is Typoteque Fedra very little costumized. The client wanted a squid from organic to pixel that he could tatoo and be proud off. Is that scary? Probably :)

It has a great feeling of movement, and the little pixels on the head really contrast well against the organic curves of the tentacles, this is an awesome logo

This is really compelling and oddly balanced. I like it.

I love it. I especially love that it really didn't need an explanation to be understood. Still, I do love knowing at least a little of the inspiration and process. Love it. Truly. And I don't find squid scary at all. Lovely animals.
