Excellent solution! Great one Sean.

logomotive said on Sep. 07 '11

Sean, I like the concept a lot. Something just bugs me about the N, seems it could be like skewed more somehow to look more like an N. I know it's "abstract" but wonder if it could be improved? I did a North logo also http://logopond.com/gallery/detail/117457 seems there's a way to make the steps end at points?

logomotive said on Sep. 07 '11

OOPS, sorry, guess I critiqued. Nevermind.

Sean Heisler said on Sep. 07 '11

Thanks, Mike. You can critique my work anytime. I hear you about the N, I toiled over that myself hoping that it was communicating an N letterform. It is abstract. It's possible that the steps could end at a point but I would have to play with it and your North River mark, which I have always loved, inspires me to try something. If anything, after being inspired by your mark I could foresee taking the upper right and lower left points of the black square and pull them out to make it look more like a "pointy" N. What I do like about this current solution is the simplicity of the execution, it's just simply a black square with the repeated negative shapes/stairs knocked out of the square. Anyhow, I'm intrigued, I appreciate the feedback. Thanks again!

Sean Heisler said on Sep. 07 '11

Sorry, I know this is already in the gallery but just a subtle tweak here I'm experimenting with. Going from Mike's suggestion and some experimentation I believe this tweak alone actually improves this and retains the simplicity! I think you get a better inference of an N now and from a dimensional standpoint it now appears as if the black area to the right of the stairs is a defined "wall" and what would be the plane of the floor of the upper level and then the space below the stairs looks like a wall below the stairs and then what would be definition of the plane of the lower level.

Grafiker and James, thanks so much!

Looks great Sean!

atomicvibe said on Sep. 09 '11

Man, this thing is giving me googly-eyes! I love how perception shifts the longer you look at it. Congrats on the well-deserved gallery spot, Sean!

Sean Heisler said on Sep. 09 '11

Thanks, guys! I have to give props to Mike for his help here, whether he likes this move I made or not(?), his suggestion made the perspective and sense of depth really pop and I think there is a better inference of an N now too.
