re-touched concept i did a while back.
It feels nicer then the other version. :)
Cheers Alen :)
Effective logo! I am just wondering if I saw this idea somewhere before ...
i did this exact logo, and im sure its been done before me
Thanks Jan,**I have done it before and im just touching it up and making it better.**Sean, i have never saw a logo like this from you or from anyone else, i'm not sure what you are trying to say...
I too saw a virtually identical logo. I will try and find it. Just a heads up.
yeah, I know I've seen this done before as well. still, nice execution.
im not saying anything, just that its been done before - you did it well at least
cheers for the comments.**yeah, think we all agree its been done before! I havnt seen it before though, just for my integrity :P Is it worth putting this on IncSpring if so many people have seen a similar concept?
I have seen this done before, in a logo book.
eziemac, I hould highly recommend abandoning the idea and not selling it. This is part of research and you don't want any lawsuits do you? I have seen a double airplanes in negative space and fairly certain I have seen this somewhere also.
I mean you can see that it might have been done? I did one somewhat similar here http://logopond.com/gallery/detail/36429
I am with Mike. I think i have a number of similar icons in my portfolio too :) Plus i am working on one as we speak :) and abandoned a shit load of similar %22S%22 icons (yes, the company name is starting with S and they are practically in trading business :)
I had no intentions to sell it at first, and i still don't, thats why i am asking for people's opinions. I have never sold an old idea before so it doesn't really make a difference to me hah!**I can totally understand that it has been done before, and trust me, i will abondon it. Your sparks is a similar idea. I think at one point in the future pretty much all 'negative space' logos will be done to an extent.**I would just like to point out that i did not copy anything to come up with the concept. I say this as i have had 5 people saying they have saw this before but im sure (well, hope!) that you don't mean anything by it :)
:) of course. Consider our advice just as a word of precaution if you want to put in on sale, in order to avoid further problems it may arise :) Nobody is questioning your originality here :) btw, that doesn't exist in the first place, you know %3B) Everything is been done before elsewhere :)
Thanks Bojan :)**yeah, haha, theres always another similar one out there**I like the part on your site that shows all of your unused concepts! The thing with me is that im pretty new so i don't have enough work that are actually used by business' so still have a few logos from my old logo competition days *cringe* I'm slowly filtering them out though. Of course i label the logos that are unused to let people know :)
eziemac, I have been doing this for years and still come up with a great logo only to find out it's been done, dam back to the drawing board. I never thought for 1 second for you to be a copy cat or even close. This just just happens, so no loss of respect here. Just goes to show that you have a great mind and think great ideas.
Thanks, Mike, really appreciate it! :)
Best execution of this idea I've seen.
It looks very good!
this is a very good study in how simple obvious forms, no matter how appropriate will run you into trouble when it comes to trademarking.*i have struggled in finding the balance here myself, and i can offer the following the advice. try making the overall shape more unique, try making the arrow heads more unique, or introduce color gradients, patterns or texture that will make this more unique. Logos are truly like snowflakes, it is possible for there to be 6 billion logos on this planet, with no two alike, but it does take that initial step on the part of the designer to go beyond the simplest forms and alignments. Take pepsi's new logo for example, surely it might seem unoriginal, but the angles and colors make it possible for it to be a one of a kind. this is the kind of second level thinking that i believe this logo requires to get it out of the red. that said, nice mark nonetheless, if it is in fact an original :)
Thanks for the support supermandru %26 tass and thanks David for putting it on the front page.**@grigoriou: The logo is just for research and practise and this is, after all, a logo inspiration site and i believe the logo can provide inspiration, so i'm pretty safe from any trademark problems. I did it in B%26W to show its simplicity and form. Thanks :)**@m1sternoname: umm...thanks?*
Chermayeff and geismar has done the same thing. i didnt like it. why did they do that u still dont understand.*
Sorry, bud, that comment went *right* over my head!
it may have been done before, but the use of negative space here is just tasteful! :D
nice one eziemac**(hate to say it but I have designed an almost identical logo lol - never chosen by client - great work still)
Nice execution. Good work.
raja, i thought of yours when i saw this. not a new concept, but atleast it's well done.
Penflare is right! Here's one that I did http://99designs.com/contests/16037/entries/109
I also had something very simillar if not exactly like this :)) Ah, the life....
Im not sure Lefty, i made it so that it symmetrical (top and bottom)
cheers bud :D
I'll copy this logo, just to make you feel better if you like! **I'll flip the S, make it a Z and it can be a logo for Zinc! :P
haha please! **Although, this one looks like about 100 other logos so I wouldn't really have a case :P
u r so creative and talented
very kind of you to say so, thanks!
Always liked this one, Euan.
Love the concept!
Seems that they loved it here as well.. at least they can use the magic wand tool. ;)
