LOVE the logo design - but not a fan of the colors. I think it would look better blending from a light green (at the top) to a darker green (at the bottom). But I'm assuming the green to brown blend was probably client driven. Nice logo regardless.

VERGad said on Aug. 31 '10

thanks sdijock, here's your suggestion. i've looked at this too long now and can't work out what's best. i still like the original brown to blue [i think].

Good flow.

Ayce said on Nov. 30 '10

love the colors

AlexWende said on Nov. 30 '10

this is pretty nice, great flow. I like these colors better.

VERGad said on Nov. 30 '10

Thanks Alex & Wende... the client in the end went for a simple grey scale version that you can see http://www.cobode.com.au">here

I've seen this technique used on quite a few logos with lowercase letters, but this one being so long and working for client is impressive.Very balanced and love that the strokes go the same way.Kudos.

Mikeymike said on Nov. 30 '10

grand piece indeed.

vasvari said on Nov. 30 '10

Great work and very nice the web site!

VERGad said on Nov. 30 '10

Wow! My first showcased logo... I was wondering why this logo was getting a bit of attention and then i noticed the little gold star. Super pumped! Thanks for the comments Logomotive, mikeymike & vasvari.

I like this very much. It's lines flow with a sweet poetry.
The current colour scheme hint at an open-minded capability to accommodate further expansion to satisfy any future whim to alter the basic palatte... like a child's slow changing LED night lamp. Gentle but extremely strong. I look forward to seeing this animated, moving and flexing. Good solid work.

VERGad said on Nov. 30 '10

*correction... first 'featured' logo. Thanks for the kind words James & Alisa. Kevbev... thank you for your insight, i loved the analogy and would like to animate it down the track, but as you can tell by the basic website the client is on a shoestring budget - for now anyway.

ambaxter said on Nov. 30 '10

This logo is sweet! Very well done. Everything about it is pretty much near-perfect.

I'd say there might need to be a little more contrast, but that's not a big deal.

Pierro said on Dec. 01 '10

Remind me abc logo.

ahmetbarin said on Dec. 01 '10

Verry nice!

VERGad said on Dec. 01 '10

@ ambaxter: too kind - thanks heaps. the logo the client chose was grey scale and has more contrast, but i like this version and the original colour scheme more.
@ ahmetbarin: thanks heaps
@ pierro: thanks also, i hadn't seen this before but it does share resemblance, especially my black & white version. i guess with the thousands upon thousands of logos posted there's probably others out there that share similar technique.

what a nice rhythm...boing boing boing

myway999 said on Dec. 02 '10

nice shot.i love this!

VERGad said on Dec. 02 '10

thanks raja & myway999 and everyone that's floated my logo so far.
Also thanks logopond; it really made my week to have my work included in the Gallery - so many beautiful logos, created by such talented designers are chosen and i'm really chuffed to see mine sitting amongst them. you beauty!

OksanaZhe said on Dec. 04 '10

sand and sea waves. wonderful!

VERGad said on Dec. 04 '10

nicely spotted Oksanazhe, with this colour scheme i was going for that sea & beach vibe as the client lives by the ocean and most of the developments will be coastal. He's also a keen surfer.

walan21 said on Jan. 10 '11

perfect, love the waves

Vergad said on Jan. 14 '11

Thanks walan21

gjrdesign said on Feb. 02 '11

Nice type, but some difficulto to read. O and A a little confused.

wizemark said on Feb. 02 '11

^there is no A. cool stuff.

vergad said on Feb. 02 '11

@gjrdesign: did you mean the 'e'?
@wizemark: thanking you kindly

chrisjansen said on Feb. 04 '11

The only thing I don't really get is why the logo is so rounded... When i look at the site the houses are really square, just like the lay-out of the site. It just don't seem to match...

But i like the logo :)

vergad said on Feb. 06 '11

@ chrisjansen... great feedback and a good observation. I do see where you're coming from although, the clients brief wasn't to have a logo that reflected the style of his architecture, but to embody what the cobode housing model represents; which is co-living arrangements. People living under the one roof whether it be boarding houses or people with special needs. This unity/ connection is part reason for the joining of the letters and I wanted to portray comfort and reliability using a repetitive and consistent round form. I did take your feedback to the client and he wanted me to say he%u2019s just designed an igloo style house for a client (dead serious), so we may see more curves entering his style in the future.

sean heisler said on Mar. 18 '11

Every time I run across this I love to just stop and look at it for a while.

JoePrince said on Mar. 18 '11

^Makes two of us. Sweet stuff man.

Thanks a million Sean & Joe. Both you guys have amazing showcases.
