An exhibition of French property at London Olympia.
Newly plagiarised: http://www.interno.it/mininterno/export/sites/default/it/
Very good! Clever idea. The type is perhaps a bit 'sec', but it works well with the mark.
Love it! Really simple and clever at the same time.
I would strongly advise a visit to Roy's showcase - there's a cartload of excellent stuff...
Another great logo my friend!
@artboy: Thanks*@drewboy: Too kind, cheers mate.*@damian: Thank you. Put some stuff up soon!
This is very nice...!
Thanks Tishbite, I appreciate it.
One of the best logos I've seen ever.
That's nice to hear. Thanks kleron :)
Genius! I love this!
this is absolutely outstanding... i bet you it took you forever to come to this seemingly simple solution... well done mate.....**%26 the exhibition was in my home town too... but i didnt go.
@nido: Cheers mate. Don't worry, there's one coming up in Harrogate if you want tickets....not!
One of my favourites, definitely.
this is one of my favourites too. genius man.. pure genius!
Thanks, Nav. I appreciate it mate :)
No comment... Magnificent! :)
Thanks, Alen :)
viva le this one! :)
Yeah, this is an absolutely ingenious mark. One of my all time favourites.
Thanks for that, Alex.
This is awesome Roy! Surprised I've never seen it before
Thanks, Josiah. :)
man i could fav everything in your gallery. this one really stands out though, so clever!
Thanks birofunk :)
Thanks lefty. Do you see an open door, exhibition panels or window shutters?
Thanks Mister j. Much appreciated.
Supacool I have this logo on many sites as reference material. Never knew it belonged to a Logoponder. Brilliant execution
Is this not in the gallery? It should be!
@lefty: It can be any of those things but the client refers to it as 'the shutters'.**@dbunk: Thanks, glad you like it. :)**@GaryS: Ours is not to reason why. %3B)
Well said on Gary's comment
I thought I could feel a draft...
@itsgareth %3B)**Cheers, nima.
One of my favourites on logopond for sure.
Actually just realised that I didn't hit the favourite button when I first floated it...My bad
Cheers, cerise. How's it going mate?
Hey there Roy, keeping busy, with the family, kids, %22wife%22, and work. Keep on truckin tiger.
every once in a while I must look at this logo, it's a neurosis
Haha. Thanks Floris.
Definitely so, Anthony, thisi is mine favourite - one of many Roys works, too.
Is it really? That's nice to know Tony :)**Jan, cheers again bud.
Did you receive mine, Roy? :)
just noticed... has this never been in the gallery?...
Not this one. Maybe it's not David's cup o' tea?
you mean %22tasse de th%E9%22..
We'll make it then :)
Makin a nice brew Bojan?
Always been my cuppa...just forgot to say so!
Floated long ago but never commented. Just phenomenal, Roy.
This is without a doubt one of the best solutions here on the pond. Excellent work, Roy.
Yes Roy is 'King of Klever.'
Why thank you kind gents!
Oh wow! I'm now reading the book, Logo Design Love and this logo was featured! Very nice work. I enjoyed reading that section of the book.
Thanks dezinart. Yes, it was nice to be part of the project.
I know I commented on this yet I don't see it. I must have hit preview instead of post...like a year ago. Anyway, still love it. The simplicity is so attractive. You set the bar pretty high for yourself :D
Thank you raja.
A master piece...
OMG!!! Outstanding like whole showcase!
nice to see this one pop up again :)
Glad to see it again.
Great logo :)
this should have a permanent link on the gallery. Its in the top five (IMHO) of logos on this site. Simplicity personified, conceptual brilliance, memorable, all rolled into one. if I design something like this before I exit this university I'd be one happy camper.
I don't know what to say. I'm quite staggered it's on the front page. Thanks for the kind comments.
Great to see this one getting the attention it deserves.
'I don't know what to say. I'm quite staggered it's on the front page. Thanks for the kind comments.'**Your way to humble Roy!
Bout bloody time! Great work Rman :)
agree with the guys on this, i'd always presumed it had been in the gallery. **It's in my top 10 all time logos
One of the best here on the LP.*Glad to see it in the gallery.
Ha ha, finally, Roy, congrats buddy.
@ClimaxDesigns: I was featured artist 3 months before this particular logo was uploaded but yeah I hear what you're saying David.
I'd float it again if I could Roy. One of the best on the site.
I'm sad to see this got featured, this was supposed to be the best kept secret of lp! Nah, just kidding, let the world enjoy it's beauty :D
Im doing a similar one for Dutch window makers...
Haha I see what you've done there Nav. My neck hurts now.**Thanks all. :)
Great stuff going on with this one. Brilliant.
For that I am very grateful. I didn't complain... it just turned up in the gallery.
Simplicity at it's best
This has always been one of my absolute favorites! Great stuff Roy! :)
well deserved spot.
I had to show the whole other 1 person in my office today. Stella logo!
I love the simplicity of this logo, it is outstanding.**Great website too.
Concept of this logo is just great! Realisation is a fantastically super-good!*%3B-)
antyclymax getting to 100. Kidding.**Thanks everyone who commented and floated.
And now the 100 more as it deserves so we can all meet at that London 'Logo Pond 4th Conference' yall be talking about! %3B)
I love the simplicity of this logo. I feel like I've seen this logo before somewhere, has this been published in any logo-collection books?
Doubt you need another comment about how awesome this is, but here's one anyway. When you see a really good one on the front page, it really stands out. Excellent!
it's awesome because of it's simplicity and cleverness! fantastic!
Thanks serene. If it's just that one design I'm not concerned. Were you referring to the withdrawn ones?
Love your work Roy!
This needs to be exposed more than TNoW...**http://www.inarea.com/archivio/news/a-new-brand-for-the-italian-ministry-of-interior-33.html
What a high caliber rip-off... sigh... would not like to be in their skin atm...
Super cool design Roy.. love
Re: the Italian Ministry of Interior logo - WOW. And it's not even ripped off *well*. Look at that gradient! D: FWIW, the rest of their work sucks, and their website, despite all its fancy bells n' whistles, has tremendously poor functionality. FAIL. I hope they get taken to the cleaners for copyright infringement.
Thanks for the support on this. I understand the client has instructed lawyers.

%5EI'm not buying it. It's way too similar. The placement of the 3 bars, one of which being an open door on the left, and the unique perspective involved - I really don't think it's a very common idea. While their CD may not have consciously copied per se, there is no doubt in my mind he/she was directly influenced by yours.
%5E I agree 100%25. Besides by, %22definition%22 (in black and white)as being registered. This would be a direct COPY.
WOW, Roy just looked this over. What a COPY. No matter how they explain it, they are in the wrong here. IMO. Good luck with this one.*Cheers.
Logopond %22a place to fish... kidnap ideas%22, FAIL.
You have got to be kidding me. This logo has been published how many times in print and on the web? And then they never thought to check and see if the idea already existed? Should be Standard Operating Procedure to check for similarities on proposed designs BEFORE you present them. Horrible, horrible lack of research and followup. I'm sorry, but they should go down for it.
SOMEBODY GET A ROPE!
This one looks like an Italian design! Ha! Forget about it! Capiche?
Roy, you are cool:)
Sad that The Italian Ministry of Interior steal your idea and logo %3B-(
Disgusted. I read about the %22kidnapping%22 on the newspaper %22La Repubblica%22 here in Italy... I didn't know the original logo was here on Logopond.*If the board of examiners of the Ministry was stupid the stealer was very dishonest...**http://www.repubblica.it/politica/2011/07/26/foto/logo_plagio_ministero_interno-19663995/1/
Most of us here at Logopond would often post a design up to get feedback to see whether there are already similar established designs done so that we may try to steer another direction. As Trish pointed out above that its pretty much SOP. And here we have a full fledged design company PROUDLY boasting the logo's author's credentials who also happens to be a CD.**With a quarter of a century of professional experience...(*spit) These guys are an insult to our profession.

Saw this for the first time in David Airey's book. One of the most impressive marks I've ever seen. Your folio is inspirational. Keep up the excellent work!
Thanks Dan, it's opened a few doors and caused a bit of controversy along the way. ;)
when I saw this logo for the first time I asked who had done it, very good! Now I know, congrats, thats great :D
^ Nice to know. Thanks!
I remember this masterpiece when i wasn't a logopond member!!
Thanks @SecondEight :)
