The funny thing is, when I first started, I thought I had to do that to be a pro. Behance gave me the wrong impression lol

firebrand Sep. 28 '10

Pierro, the logo is not real - it's sarcasm (a joke).

Reply
firebrand Sep. 28 '10

@logomotive: Yeah that would be good although I may try a distressed logo next. %3B)

milou Sep. 28 '10

Hahaha, damn it's hard to make a square this days, eh?

Reply
pierro Sep. 28 '10

Roy, I'm not insulting, just this work must be submitted in Behance.

Reply
firebrand Sep. 28 '10

Pierro, I know you're not but you should lighten up a bit. :)

firebrand Mar. 05 '13

Thanks but why is this in the gallery? LOL

Reply
Hayes Image Mar. 05 '13

It is a demonstration of the engineering of shape. The balance of form, the profound mechanics of pixel...

You should include fancy photographs that zoom in at crazy angles and dramatic lighting.

logomotive Mar. 05 '13

I think this is how they made Mickey Mouse.

Reply
tabithakristen Mar. 05 '13

lol my father was the manager of the Contemporary Resort at Disney World and I went to Disney as often as most kids go to the local playground growing up. I've seen how they made Mickey, definitely not like this!

^ I don't think I'll have the processing power to generate the guides.

Reply
logomotive Mar. 09 '13

I'm still in awe of how fantastic that square came out.

Reply
firebrand Mar. 09 '13

Yeah, thanks to the circle. You can construct anything with a circle... even a circle.

Reply
logomotive Mar. 09 '13

now try the opposite?

Reply
alexwende Mar. 09 '13

Hmm something is missing here..., how do you have constructed the circles before you used them to create the square?!

Reply
tabithakristen Mar. 09 '13

Alex is right. I demand some kind of explanation here Roy.

borinagge Mar. 10 '13

I don't want sound like one of those guys that spend their time looking for similarities on logos, but you should check this one;

But well, it could be just another case of great minds thinking alike.

Reply
tabithakristen Mar. 10 '13

^ I already made the similar logo joke here 3 years ago lol

borinagge Mar. 11 '13

See, another case of great minds thinking alike! lol
