Great, Foggy. Would also look nice with a block serif.

fogra said on Apr. 14 '08

@firebrand: Good thinking - I have changed the font to 'Rockwell' and it really works now. Thanks :)

bartodell said on Apr. 14 '08

This is perfect. :)

firebrand said on Apr. 14 '08

@fogra: It does indeed.

AlexWende said on Apr. 14 '08


fogra said on Apr. 14 '08

Cheers everyone. Their previous logo had no connection to castles or to printing for that matter. This was my first layout - hope they go for it.
Oh, thanks for the gallery spot also :)

AlexWende said on Apr. 14 '08

I'm sure they do, I'm in love with this one! ^^

davidairey said on Apr. 15 '08

An excellent idea. One of my recent favourites.

wilsonink said on Apr. 16 '08


i love it! :| great idea and really nice execution.

fogra said on Apr. 16 '08

Wow! Thank you everybody.

moebiusdave said on Apr. 16 '08

great use of a popular idea (the overlapping ink) and making it relevant to the client, interesting to look at, and very nice overall.

WarnerBrother said on Apr. 16 '08

Brilliant !!!
One of my fav's...Thanks for sharing :)

gthobbs said on Apr. 17 '08

Great execution.

robalan said on May. 04 '08

I love this icon - very nice. I'm working on a design with the "overlapping ink" element... Does anyone have any resources on how to make the file print-ready? Do I need to pick Pantone colors for each shown, including the overlapped color?

logomotive said on May. 04 '08

@ roblan, You probably could do a 3 color overprint Pantone but with these colors I would highly recommend full color. You can overprint but an accurate way to do it, is use the color picker and set each specific color (area) accordingly. I have may ways of doing things, I'm sure others here have indifferent or perhaps better ways.

robalan said on May. 04 '08

Thanks for the tip, logomotive. I'll upload the logo to my gallery -- if you could take a look, that'd be great! (sorry to post this in your thread fogra -- great work!)

gthobbs said on May. 04 '08

I agree with you logomotive. The best way to control something like this on press would be to punch out each area as it's own shape and color pick the exact builds.

alexrobete said on Jul. 04 '08

hi ,
i was wondering , is this logo for sale ?
i really like it and i'd like to buy it for personal use

fogra said on Jul. 04 '08

Why? Do you have a company called Castle Print also?

alexrobete said on Jul. 04 '08

no , but i can use it for my design page ,
i mean it represents what i do - i use lots of colors and also i wanted to include something royal in my logo
the castle shield is really cool and i like it, so , is it for sale ?
please mail me at alex.robete at gmail.com

alexrobete said on Jul. 04 '08

to be honest i find it EXTREMELY hard to design something for myself, i am very very critic wen it comes to design something for myself....
i always design a logo , i like it , but after 2-3 hours ,i find some major flaw or whatever ....
by the way , you have a great logo gallery and i really like your work

alexrobete said on Jul. 04 '08

clashmore , i think you are right about the false advertising stuff.
any suggestions for my logo ?

alexrobete said on Jul. 04 '08

ok dude , thanks , i'll do that tomorrow, now i'm off to bed :)
btw i have a big one uploaded on behanced

nido said on Jul. 05 '08

firebrand said on Jul. 15 '08

Well done foggy. I had a gut feeling this would make the final cut.

fogra said on Jul. 15 '08

Thank you guys. To say 'I'm chuffed' would be an understatement :)

roy.sdesign said on Jul. 23 '08

I always come back to admire to this one Fogra, this is amazing stuff! Marvelous!

fogra said on Sep. 16 '08

Thanks Alen, I really appreciate it.

PaulH said on Oct. 01 '08

Hi Fogra, I don't know how I stumbled here but being the owner of Castle Print & Design in the UK I just wanted to leave you a note to say, a great-looking logo, and wished I'd known of you when we put our logo together. The 'castellation' is quite clever and I'll know where to come should we ever go for a revamp. Best regards, Paul.

fogra said on Oct. 01 '08

Thanks Paul.

jerome said on Oct. 27 '08
