Nice updates James, looks great mate. Close the space a little between O and T in MOTION though.

lumo said on Aug. 16 '10

Thanks joe. This one does communicate more motion which makes it stronger IMO.

OcularInk said on Aug. 16 '10

The idea is really nice. The silhouette feels awkward though. Something might be off with the proportions.

JoePrince said on Aug. 16 '10

^Hmm...I know on the other one some people were saying the proportions looked off also. For some reason I'm not seeing any problems with it. Maybe it's time I get some new glasses :)

webcore said on Aug. 16 '10

Nice work!

I agree with the proportions comment though. The legs could definately do with being longer.

Also there seems to be little shape to the bum as it's cut off by the swing seat. I'd raise the figure off the seat, add greater curve to the backside and blend the bottom of the torso with the legs with a fluid curve (at the top where the rope comes down) so that both parts appear as a single stremiline shape.

OcularInk said on Aug. 16 '10

^ ^ Good comments. The neck head area feels a little awkward too. And something about how the hair is flowing off the head isn't right. Where's Mike or Alan when you need them? @Joe Yep, I think it's time. :-)

lumo said on Aug. 16 '10

thanks ocularink and webcore for the feedback, I'm still working on it and will post an update. Keep in touch guys!

much better

webcore said on Aug. 16 '10

I noted the update before reading the comments.

Agreed. Much better! :-)

lumo said on Aug. 16 '10

thanks, I'm still tweaking but I agree with logoses that I'm liking the updated boy version more.

i like the boy...

mabu said on Aug. 17 '10

Great stuff.

lumo said on Aug. 17 '10

thanks mabu.

brandclay said on Aug. 20 '10

This is great.

On another note, might be cool if you had it suspended from a moon. :)

Too much? Ya never know people.

lecart said on Aug. 20 '10

^ yeah, but the moon is more or less a trademark for Dreamworks in this industry.

brandclay said on Aug. 20 '10

they dont own the moon.

lumo said on Aug. 20 '10

Thanks brandclay. Dreamworks probably think they do.

ethereal said on Aug. 21 '10

Very cool, James.

Just made some updates on this logo.

Really nice, James!!

lumo said on Jan. 28 '11

Thanks Oronoz!

The girl presents herself way better than the boy. After all, women are prettier by nature in any possible way compared to men :).

She keeps her legs up so the space between the illustration and the type seems more balanced than it is on the boy's concept. Straight winner!

lumo said on Jan. 29 '11

One of the changes I wanted to make is to have the type to be more consistent with the girl. I feel that this type works better than the all uppercase and gives it a softer feel. Appreciate the comment MYOB!

Mikeymike said on Mar. 28 '11

this all fits nicely, James.

ALL4LEO said on Mar. 28 '11

Yeah, awesome logo!

13mu said on Mar. 28 '11

^ agree

webcore said on Mar. 28 '11

Nice to see this featured!

milou said on Mar. 29 '11

That's sweet work James, glad it made the gallery finally.

contrast8 said on Mar. 29 '11

congrats James:) great logo:)

Rokac said on Mar. 29 '11

Very nice and inspirational:)

Jedah Doma said on Mar. 29 '11

As others said, the girl looks wrong. Her body is out of proportion. Her motion looks stiff and unnatural. Also having her swinging in the middle of blank space looks odd. It's an interesting idea, but it feels uninspired to me.

lumo said on Mar. 29 '11

Appreciate all the comments guys!

@Jedah, I feel that the stiffness that was mentioned has been removed and it pretty much looks like a girl would on a swing. Also in terms of swinging out on a 'blank space' looking odd: the whole point is to make it free and moving.

Pierro said on Mar. 31 '11

Very nice and clean logo.

brandsimplicity said on Mar. 31 '11

Congrats on the gallery, this has a great feeling:)

lumo said on Mar. 31 '11

Thanks for the comments and for the gallery spot.

brandsanity said on Apr. 02 '11

Love the feeling of this - I think you chose the perfect point in the swing to illustrate the movement.
