Fantastic! the Australian shape is used quite a bit, with hands etc. However this is subtle, and the hint at the Y is great too.

well played indeed. I love the hidden australia. But I do think that the type isn't sitting well with the mark.

Brilliant! I'm shocked at how much Aussie drawl this logo has bubbled up inside commenters! Yes tassie would have to be a bellybutton.%0D*baha

Thanks thisGuy you must have slipped in under the radar.

firebrand May. 19 '09

Hmmm. Not sure if I see a hint of Australia hidden in there. http://www.australianyogaconference.com

Reply
logomotive May. 19 '09

Hmm.. OGA 09 seems a copy to me.

Reply
firebrand May. 19 '09

A poor one at that. It's certainly close.

Reply
firebrand May. 19 '09

I don't have a problem with the pose, it is after all a yoga posture. It's the Australia shape in the middle I'm concerned will be ripped... one of these days.

Reply
gyui May. 19 '09

you know what, I don't think it's a rip. Firebrand's execution does what it is intended to do, show australia in the neg space. This one is trying to show a %22Y%22. I think it is by coincidence, because if they tried to show australia in the neg space, they did an absolutely horrible job. The pose is what it is, a yoga pose. With that said, i'd take firebrands logo over theirs in a heartbeat. but i would be cautious of them ripping it for future conventions.

Dan. Nov. 24 '12

Roy, have you presented this to any Australian yoga companies? An idea this strong needs to be in the public domain :)

Reply
firebrand Nov. 24 '12

No Dan, it just sits there on the internets like a sculpture. When I designed it there wasn\'t a company called Yoga Australia.

Now there is.
