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.

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.

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.

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

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.
