Lets Discuss

cobaltcow

nice use of colour - however i feel that the image and text are not balanced (maybe a little bottom-heavy).

I agree with cobalt. The mark has great style and colors, but I'm having a hard time relating the mark with the type.

The mark is very interesting and beautifully illustrated. The type fights with the mark.

I like the style of the image, but the type needs work. I guess you already realize it :) Good luck convincing the client!

Nice mark. Type could work...shrink it by half and space it out a bit.

Thanks Darrel I'm working on it at the moment, the name will eventually be shorter so that will be easier

I really like this design, however... as for the colours, I am not liking the gradient, as I have a very strong feeling it is one of the default (radial) ones in illustrator. But other than that, really nice work IMO :D

@ revolvedesign - Thanks, the colours are slightly different than the default gradient, (I know the ones you mean though).

Best design in your showcase so far. I don't know why I passed it by before. As a designer for a very specific industry, it must be hard coming up with new design treatments for essentially the same subject over and over. You're doing a spectacular job.

Perhaps a script font would help? Or maybe your own handwritten style vectorized??

Word of advice fellow designers, make sure you are present when the signage company are putting up the signage. Had an unpleasant suprise when I got to work today. AARGH!!!!!!!!!!

hindmarshdesign

did they change the font? install it upside down? space the elements wrongly???? Seriously you have to watch signage people every step of the way...like vultures they pull apart your work and then even have the guts to regurgitate you a proof of your logo with a brand new font!

Okay that was a generalisation but i have too many bad experiences!

and for all those smar alecs, yes i outline everything and group it so they don't get the wrong impression.

They put the horse on a frosted white background (not black) in several areas around the building...but I have since complained and they are reprinting the strips. It's such a stress when you get anyone to print something generally, but signage companies can really take the law into their own hands sometimes.

Lost a job once because I believed what a print rep told me. Promised she could deliver but her company could not. It was a nightmare. It was a huge project and a lot went right and I was able to solve one problem no one thought could be solved, but all it takes is one dropped ball. No matter how much you trust your vendors, you should always keep on top of every thing. Like you learn everything you can about your client's businesses, you have to know your vendor's business, too.

Word! Trish.

Anyway you'll be stoked to know that they didn't stuff up the external signage and it's sort of a sigh of relief today.

Great to see some trotter related stuff in your gallery. It ain't easy to create a unique trotter logo. I know because I made some a long time ago.

Love it.

Saw this on the Highway when I was passing through Melton on the weekend, still looks great!! ...and, it managed to distract from the fact that I was in Melton ;)

Thanks Gert & Josh, I appreciate your comments, and agree that it is hard to do Harness logos, because of the lack of symetry with the sulky on the back, so u have to mix it up for sure. Josh that cracked me up :)
