Thanks, Gareth :)
Wow, this is very creative! Really refreshing use of the fingerprint :)
Thank you, Alex :)
mustve missed this one... anyone got any new superlatives to describe Roy?
LOL! Says nido who's logos have close to 100 votes each. Thanks bud ;)
This logo inspires me to do better:) Fantastic piece!
Thank you nexqunyx, that's nice to hear.
Awesome job, dude. You got skills!
Yep, this one inspires me to be more creative, you have a very creative mind Roy.
Thanks Kev and Mikey :D
Speachless. . .
Smart, clever, intelligent, brainy masterpiece. Congrat Roy to this.
Oh, man, brilliant!
Glad to see this one in the gallery. You're so clever, bud.
Yeah, what Kevin said :)
very nice logo, really well thought off!
this is brilliant.
love love love love love love love.
I wish I had done this
Sweet lord this rocks!
well deserved spot
Wow, thanks all you fine people. Nice surprise.
I've been waiting for this to get into the gallery!!
What I like most is the just at the end, the strokes connect forming an ellipse (caps of the fingerprint too), which implies that the wave is starting to break...but since our surfer hero is at the other end of the tube, he should have just enough momentum to ride the foam back to shore...point A to point B, like finding what you're looking for in a directory.
Brilliant Roy. Love it!
It's great to see this one in lights, Roy!
Roy, this one is fantastic!
Long live Sir Roy, the Duke of Logo Design and the King of Britain!
LOL @Alen, I humbly accept the fine title you have bestowed upon me.
@Hayes: I always enjoy your observations.
One of the best...
Thanks lads, much appreciated..
I really like this. Have you tried to round the end of the "waves"? And in my subjective opinion, the typo is just a bit too big for the logo.
@robin21: Yes that could work. Cheers.
The simplistic finger print is really great. Awesome color as well!
One of my favorite logos I've seen in a while on here! I love the subtly in the type - the R connected to the F and I.
this logo is pretty famous..ive seen it pop up around the net a few times. i think this was published too? One of the best logos i have ever seen.
Thanks Greg, that is one mighty fine compliment. Yes it's in LL5.
Nice graphic solution.
Amazing simplicity! nice work.
Peach of a design. Love the choice and handling of type too.
Cheers for your comments. Much appreciated :)
Nicely done! I also compliment you on your fingerprint "redo"... I have seen some logos where the fingerprint didn't turn out so well!
This rocks dude!
Dirty fingerprints on this one too:
Very clever logo Roy.
Missed this one. Genius.
Stock response from 99design whenever you report an infringement:
Thanks for your email.
I have taken a closer look at this report, but have found that there is not enough evidence to allow us taking further action. We can see that the design in question is a similar concept as the link you provided, but closer inspection of the two show clear differences.
If there's anything else I can help you with, please let me know.
So basically this implies that 99dezigners are free to steal your work!
How fucked up that is. And how lame does that testimonial sound: "I love my new logo that I bought from the Logo Store, the designer was very accommodating [...]" it sounds like logos are apples or something.
They probably use stock testimonials too!
99designs is BY FAR the most arrogant of all the crowdsourcing sites. And the most likely to deny they have plagiarists on their books. They know that the honest hardworking designers can't afford to take legal action. C*nts
I mean, to their credit, the logo you cited doesn't really look like yours. It happens to have a fingerprint, which has been used repeatedly for years, kinda like the lightbulb. But you're right and i've seen plenty of blatant ripoffs through them.
That all being said, you have one of the best fingerprint logos that I've seen!
Well no but clearly elements have been lifted. My point is that even if entire logos have been stolen they still deny their deziners are over-inspired.
i had an issue with 99 designs as well. same response. same hatred towards them.
I'd agree with that. I'm definitely not trying to defend 99designs by any means as I think they are a total degradation to our field. However a fingerprint logo is not the one to get mad over. Yes the way the print has been rendered is done almost the same, but it is very possible that it wasn't stolen from you. The only reason I comment on this is because literally only a month ago or so we were working on a logo here that involved a fingerprint and several of the initial sketches were stylized in basically the same exact way, without having done any research on other logos with fingerprints. Please don't think I'm knocking your design, because as I said, it's done really well and has a nice concept. I just feel as though it's like getting mad at somebody because their car has 4 wheels on it too.
@ColinTierne I've had a number of run-ins with them. Cheers bro.
Still one of my all time fav logos.
That's nice to know. Cheers, Sean.
