great balance between the mark and logotype, love the mark though was thrown of by the little highlight at the top, still, great work. That type a scratch one? Love the little serif of it, kinda like a speed line... adds a little motion to it.

thanks mac... still a wip, so not sure about the highlight on the top, keep flicking between having it and not... also working out whether needs more colour on the legs... as I said... wip..

the font is actually gotham... tweaked some :) .. thanks again bud...

Top rhino is energy (this is great), but the lower part is very quiet. Especially the rear legs...

you are so good with animals

do you have any pets

nido said on Feb. 28 '11

thanks all... sincerely :)

@bigoodis, I have a version where the legs seem more "animated" but felt this "quiet just before the storm" look said a lot more :)

@Raja.. lol... if I do have pets I can't recall where I put them...

Yeah, looks like he's about to turn something into paste. Nice!

As already mentioned, I think the highlight is only distracting: because it's (compared with the eye) huge, in the middle and at the top so it seems to demand all the attention.

love the mark

Honestly, that highlight is a great touch. Looks perfect to me, I wouldn't charge anything.

Sean Heisler said on Mar. 01 '11

The light work on the feet and the little touch on the shoulder helps give the illusion of "bulk" and dimension. I'm sure Nido could have gone for sheer simplicity here but the outline and light work takes it to another realm of design, but yet it's still simple. It's a very neat mark.

thank you all... individually and collectively...

@Sean Heisler... I'm impressed by your interpretation of my design... well spotted and played.

I think changing the angle of the rear right leg would improve the sense of coiled energy you mentioned. Otherwise I think it's a really great concept.

sweet mark man

mrshonuff said on Mar. 01 '11

I dig the mark and think it it is close to finished, but what is messing with me is the light source for the highlight is different on the legs vs the one on the back. If you can figure out how to make the legs look the way you want and maintain a consistent light source, it might help. You could also shape the top highlight to give the top of the shoulder some more tension.

Nice mark, and I'm glad to see you customized the type.

i love this mark...im not too fond of the highlight on the shoulder, i wondered what that was when i saw it in the gallery.

Alisa1711 said on Mar. 02 '11

I like the character and the type work. Great. What else can I say? (-:
