Great job Kevin...!!! Very, Very, Very nice!!!

itsgareth said on Feb. 12 '08

Nice. I see a new trend forming....

Oronoz ® said on Feb. 12 '08

Very nice work!!!

KGB said on Feb. 12 '08

nice, but the flat spots inside the As and U is distracting from the water in the Q.

smartinup said on Feb. 12 '08

much better. The As and Us may be different, but not distractin IMO, plus they will lend them selves very useful in the branding and marketing of this. what if the water was coming out of the Q to form the tail. Maybe to much like urinating... ha, very nice kev

Lucidity said on Feb. 12 '08

I think the question on everyone's mind is, 'Is the Q half empty, or half full?'

anotheralex said on Feb. 12 '08

Really good work, maybe you could change the water to a wave.

OcularInk said on Feb. 12 '08

@ andersonmarques: Thanks, buddy!!

@ itsgareth: But I don't want to be a trend setter/former. Maybe a transformer, but not a trendformer. :-P

@ oronoz: Thanks, Allen!

@ KGB: Edited just for you. :-)

@ smartinup: Haha, interesting idea, but yea it might look funny. Maybe I'll give it a shot. Thanks!!

@ Lucidity: Hmm, half full for sure!! What can I say? I'm optimistic.

@ joseba: Done! Thanks!! :-)

@ anotheralex: Hmm, maybe I'll try that. Thanks!!

logomotive said on Feb. 12 '08

Kevin, I saw the original type you did and Loved it. It was unique but yet clean. I actually preferred that one, wish I had commented earlier.I did not find it distracting at all, it had style.

OcularInk said on Feb. 12 '08

Well, shoot. Now I'm torn between the two. I think liked the other one better. Okay, let's take a vote. All those in favor of the original type solution say, "I". For all those opposed...yeah, you get the idea.

Thanks, Mike!

nido said on Feb. 12 '08

i... didnt see the other one.. however...i... do like this.. what about a drip hanging off the bottom of the Q.. cause it almost looks like a tube.. but leave it actually.. coolio!

jjjost said on Feb. 12 '08

Hmmm.. I think I liked the original type a bit better. Great stuff Kevin.

firebrand said on Feb. 12 '08

Reminds me of a BiOrb or a washing machine. I like this type, Kev.

logomotive said on Feb. 12 '08

@firebrand, did you see the other?

firebrand said on Feb. 12 '08

Yes I did Mike... I wasn't sure about the flat bits.

logomotive said on Feb. 12 '08

Awe com on guys be trend "setters" not followers. LOL

logomotive said on Feb. 12 '08

DARE, to be different :-)

OcularInk said on Feb. 12 '08

Okay, I'm going with my gut on this one. The final is uploaded. Thanks to everyone for all your helpful feedback.

@ nido: That's an interesting idea, Nav. I think you're right though, I'm gonna leave it. ;-)

@ jjjost: Thanks, man!!

@ firebrand: Ah, you're right. It would work for a washing/dryer machine company. Thanks for chiming in, Roy!!

@ logomotive: Rock on, Mike.

logomotive said on Feb. 12 '08

well you got my vote on both. :-)

gstaltig said on Feb. 13 '08

looks stylish!

ahab said on Feb. 14 '08

This is great, Oc. I like it as is...but what do I know?

chanpion said on Feb. 14 '08

Man, I missed the first one! But this one is kool! Love the type treatment. It was what drawn me to it initially. I would make the water part in the 'Q' abit opaque just to give it some depth. Another great piece from the Doc.

bbx said on Feb. 14 '08

"I think the question on everyone's mind is, 'Is the Q half empty, or half full?' "

The answer is : the Q is twice too big lol!

Great logo. Ik looks both smooth and square at the same time.

OcularInk said on Feb. 15 '08

@ Logomotive: Thanks, dude!!

@ gstaltig: Thanks!!

@ ahab: More than you think. Thanks!!

@ chanpion: Chan da man!! Thanks!! I'll give it a whirl.

@ bbx: Lol!! Thanks!!

OcularInk said on Feb. 15 '08

Dache, I'd love to know your thoughts behind your decision to sink this logo? Not saying your decision is wrong, just curious on how to improve this logo concept. Thanks! :-)

Lawrence Anderson said on Feb. 16 '08

Dache and Lenin design have sunk like 90% of the gallery. Just an observation.

efe-zero said on Feb. 22 '08

simple = brillante!!!

bob sakoui said on Mar. 08 '08

Agree with KGB, but it's very nice.

bettina said on Mar. 20 '08

simple, nice, clever and eye-catching. Great work!

OcularInk said on Apr. 01 '08

@ Lawrence : Thanks for the heads up.

And thanks efe-zero, bob sakoui, Webdesign, and bettina for your comments.

hairygorillaass said on Jun. 12 '08

this may have already been mentioned, but the perspective given to the water in the q makes it look weaker than if it was just in an orthographic view. really dig the type treatment though

OcularInk said on Jun. 13 '08

Thanks for your feedback. I wanted the water inside the Q to appear as if it were sloshing/moving around. However, I can see your point. Thanks again.

gorz said on Jun. 13 '08

Very nice logo & mark

erzio said on Nov. 22 '08

simply beautiful

OcularInk said on Nov. 24 '08

Thanks Vladimir, Nima and Erzio.

woahdesigns said on Nov. 25 '08

great job! i just got thirsty staring at this (which is good!)

nulio said on Jan. 03 '09


And with just some little work on the water on the Q you have a timeless logo.

OcularInk said on Jan. 05 '09

Thanks Jake. You have some clever and unique logos.

And thanks Julio!!

rfrusso said on Jan. 30 '09

So sorry I didn't post sooner. I keep coming across this and have meant to tell you this is one of my favorites in the "pond."

The water in the Q is cool and obviously fits here but my favorite detail(s) is the little added bits in the other letters.

*Nice work as always!*

OcularInk said on Jan. 31 '09

Thanks so much for stopping by, Robert. I appreciate your kind words. I'm glad you noticed the little details on the letters. It was a tough call during the design process (whether or not to add the details), but some fellow logoponders convinced me otherwise. Thanks again. Take it easy!

LoGoBoom said on Jan. 31 '09

Might even work with an added bit at the bottom where the Q stem starts. I too have never commented on how much I like this one.

OcularInk said on Feb. 05 '09

I'll have to try that. Thanks for commenting, Glen.

dimARTirosov said on Jun. 30 '09

I was sure i've floated this one before... top notch kevin!

OcularInk said on Jul. 02 '09

Thanks for stopping by, Dima!

logomotive said on Jan. 11 '10

See my above comment. Love the type.

OcularInk said on Jun. 10 '10

What do you guys think? Too close? http://brandstack.com/logo-design/details/19944

janzabransky said on Jun. 10 '10

hmmm link is broken ...

OcularInk said on Jun. 10 '10

Looks like the logo was removed. Here's a link:
The guy's portfolio's name is: oliverakos

logoholik said on Jun. 10 '10

heh :) logocopies :) funny thing that over the time, as ones portfolio and recognition grows, one need to have similar folder available :) I see that logo is gone now. Good.

OcularInk said on Jun. 10 '10

:-D Haha, you noticed that. That folder is there to stay.

milou said on Jun. 10 '10

aoua?! or am I missing something?

JoePrince said on Jul. 08 '10

Great stuff Kev.

OcularInk said on Jul. 12 '10

Nah, milou, the guy apparently can't spell either. Thanks, Joe!
