Awesome. I can feel that thing charging at whatever is on its right. The nostril feels unnecessary and distracting though. Maybe the tail as well.
The RINO type is excellent, as is the entire composition. Faved floated.

There's a strange, darker overlapping slice where the front arm meets the body. And the nostril could be slightly bigger. Besides that, it's really nice.

the nostril or mouth or whatever it is, is distracting. love all the rest. :)

Mikeymike said on Jun. 05 '11

Hummmm may have to get rid of it. thanks

Mikeymike said on Jun. 05 '11

UPDATED: took off the nostril.

Mikeymike said on Jun. 05 '11

UPDATED: Thanks David. looks a tad tighter now.

great job, mike. love the type.

I dig it! :P Sorry, couldn't resist. Great feel here, nice Rhino! I like David's comment, might even try a version where excavating is bigger yet, not really tracked out - the whole mark and the foundation would feel big and bold top to bottom, just a thought. Nice again, Mike!

angry one

Mikeymike said on Jun. 06 '11

Colin, Sean, Fabian, Raoul and Florin, thanks for the supportive comments. Really appreciate it.
@ Sean, yeah I may have to experiment with that bottom type somemore.
I kind of like how the icon and the name RINO just stand out so strong now, but it might not take away if the Excavating is larger and not kerned as much. Strength that's what this is all about. Thanks, man. good suggestions form a few of you thanks.

Mikeymike said on Jun. 06 '11

I see what you mean. Thanks David. I'll take a closer look after i finalize a couple other projects that hopped on the faster burner first. thanks again. cheers.

Mikey, you're doing great things with animals, recently. Really nice treatments.

Nekiy said on Jun. 09 '11

Great styling!

Mikeymike said on Jun. 09 '11

Milou, thanks for the comment. yeah I have always like to do the animal direction when it fits the brand and business.

Mikeymike said on Jun. 09 '11

thanks for all the floats and the gallery spot.

Great stuff! The logo really jumps out of the page! I could definitely envision this beast as part of the http://www.dpm.net.au/about/branding/">branding for an industrial company of some sort. Great job!

juliandorado said on Jul. 28 '11

Thanks for your comment your work is super out of this world!

Mikeymike said on Jul. 28 '11

thx, julian.

atomicvibe said on Jul. 29 '11

Man, this one is pretty badass, Mikey. I love how dynamic and aggressive it is. Seems to really fit the subject matter. That exaggerated horn is MONEY!

Mikeymike said on Jul. 30 '11

you've done some badass stuff yourself, Jon. thx. :)

Ivaylo Nedkov said on Nov. 11 '11

love the graphic style of rino;)

Mikeymike said on Nov. 11 '11

THX again, Ivaylo. You have some strong graphic style yourself, man.

RRC2 said on Dec. 22 '11

I love the R letter shape. It's interesting, because if it was just on its own most people wouldn't see it as a R. In the context of the whole Rhino word and the great icon, it works perfectly!

Mikeymike said on Dec. 23 '11

Thanks, Robert, glad you like it.
