just wondering if the quill pen tip in the skull is legable?

Mikeymike said on Jul. 23 '10

Update, with some minor tweaks. Worked on skull and quill pen tip.

Lecart said on Jul. 23 '10

this is very nicely executed Mike. it does feel a bit scary, tho'. :)

Mikeymike said on Jul. 23 '10

thanks for the comment, Lecart. Yeah, I'm a little concerned on that. But then again we are talking ot hunters in general.

nido said on Aug. 30 '10

there's something about the name Mike...

koodoz said on Aug. 30 '10

Love it! Clever integration of the nib into a deer's antlers. The pin striping style is awesome, too!

Mikeymike said on Aug. 30 '10

thanks, koodoz, much appreciated.
not sure I follow, nido.
I made this name up in place of the writer's real name. This design ended up being put on the back burner, the writer felt this tied him down to much to deer hunting only. (even though most his work was 90% deer projects.) He wanted to break into other outdoor categories. We'll see if if he changes his mind.

Mikeymike said on Aug. 30 '10

michaelspitz said on Aug. 30 '10

^Ha! ;) I'm with you buddy...

Mikeymike said on Aug. 31 '10

LOL, I read it now, nido. I finally got a good nights sleep. :)

Great work!

logoboom said on Sep. 01 '10

Nice. I wish the buck/pen image itself had some of the thick and thins present in all other elements.

Mikeymike said on Sep. 02 '10

good pint to consider, Mr. Logoboom. thanks.

What a great logo, and a dream client - so specific! Don't you just hate those generic logo briefs? It would be funny if you did a version of the buck from behind (as a pun on 'tales'). ;-)
