Fantastic! the Australian shape is used quite a bit, with hands etc. However this is subtle, and the hint at the Y is great too.

90degrees90 said on Jun. 19 '08

Good job. Just needs a map of tassie!!! hehehe!

firebrand said on Jun. 19 '08

BigAl67 said on Jun. 19 '08

Farkin' ripper mate! This'd 'ave to be the best adaptation of Australia I've seen in... ever! Bloody mickey mouse!

tickey said on Jun. 20 '08

Sailendra said on Jun. 20 '08

Great logo, firebrand!

firebrand said on Jun. 20 '08

Thanks people. Even better to get the thumbs up from you guys downunder.

bjmramage said on Jun. 20 '08

VERY WOW indeed.

great job!!

ostrov svobody said on Jun. 21 '08

!!!Great Logo!!!

Hayes Image said on Jun. 22 '08

hehehe...There is a crude joke about what the shape of tassie looks like, & it's almost in the right spot for it :P

Seriously though, awesome image :)

brandsimplicity said on Jun. 22 '08

I was thinking the research for this must of been fun...:)

firebrand said on Jun. 22 '08

Thanks fellas.

@brand. Of course ;)
No, actually a single photographic image inspired me. Connecting the leg to the arm was a real challenge.

Naekie said on Jun. 24 '08

OMG!!! This is class! In fact, i'll sign-up for a class or two! Great work!

cerise said on Jun. 24 '08

On Ya Mate

mtakwethu said on Jun. 24 '08

very tit

sisudesigns said on Jun. 26 '08

well played indeed. I love the hidden australia. But I do think that the type isn't sitting well with the mark.

firebrand said on Jun. 26 '08

Thanks all.

@sisudesigns: Fair point, cheers.

GabrielRO said on Jul. 11 '08

just great.

hindmarshdesign said on Jul. 21 '08

Brilliant! I'm shocked at how much Aussie drawl this logo has bubbled up inside commenters! Yes tassie would have to be a bellybutton.

firebrand said on Jul. 22 '08

Thanks for the comments, folks :)

pinktank said on Jul. 23 '08

dude, this is friggn awesome... Makin' us Aussies proud man!

firebrand said on Jul. 23 '08

Cheers. No worries, mate ;)

Type08 said on Jul. 25 '08

You can definitelly apply for the other regions (yoga europe, yoga asia, yoga america)... Great logo!

firebrand said on Jul. 26 '08

Thanks, Alen. I think she would have to be a contortionist to achieve that ;)

Type08 said on Jul. 26 '08

Don't you worry my man, yoga people can do that!

kappa said on Aug. 26 '08


firebrand said on Aug. 26 '08

Thanks, kappa!

Thank you, George!

designabot said on Oct. 14 '08


cerise said on Nov. 09 '08

I don't usually give more compliments on the same logo......but.......exceptional this really is

firebrand said on Nov. 10 '08

designabot and cerise, cheers. :)

firebrand said on Dec. 28 '08

Thank you Dalius, mate.

jsae said on Dec. 30 '08

Thanks jerron and renalicious.

logomotive said on Apr. 13 '09

I always wondered Roy. How did you come up with this idea?? humm

firebrand said on Apr. 13 '09

Thanks demiphonic. Haha Mike, the answer's in your email. ;)

firebrand said on Apr. 13 '09

Thanks thisGuy you must have slipped in under the radar.

firebrand said on May. 19 '09

Hmmm. Not sure if I see a hint of Australia hidden in there. http://www.australianyogaconference.com

logomotive said on May. 19 '09

Hmm.. OGA 09 seems a copy to me.

firebrand said on May. 19 '09

A poor one at that. It's certainly close.

firebrand said on May. 19 '09

I don't have a problem with the pose, it is after all a yoga posture. It's the Australia shape in the middle I'm concerned will be ripped... one of these days.

gyui said on May. 19 '09

you know what, I don't think it's a rip. Firebrand's execution does what it is intended to do, show australia in the neg space. This one is trying to show a "Y". I think it is by coincidence, because if they tried to show australia in the neg space, they did an absolutely horrible job. The pose is what it is, a yoga pose. With that said, i'd take firebrands logo over theirs in a heartbeat. but i would be cautious of them ripping it for future conventions.

firebrand said on May. 19 '09

Good points there, George. Cheers.

theartistt said on May. 19 '09

agree with george wholeheartedly.

sandhya said on May. 19 '09

andreiu said on May. 19 '09

firebrand said on May. 19 '09

Well if she puts her back out don't blame me ;) Thanks Andreiu.

birofunk said on Jun. 03 '09

michaelspitz said on Feb. 03 '10

LiverpoolFanAU said on Mar. 18 '10

Very well done and an awesome concept! As an Australian that's one of the best logo's I've seen!

firebrand said on Mar. 18 '10

Thanks, LiverpoolFanAU. Good result tonight. Are you Chanpion in disguise?

matt_yow said on Mar. 30 '10

nido said on May. 17 '10

milou said on Aug. 19 '10

Trolls are amongst us.

firebrand said on Aug. 19 '10

Perhaps David will consider letting the mods delete the spammers. Best to have 10 pairs of eyes than one. ;)

firebrand said on Jan. 02 '11

Shame, I wish the same could be said of your blinds.

I LOVE this!

LadyGrey said on May. 30 '12

This is really amazing!

Dan. said on Nov. 24 '12

Roy, have you presented this to any Australian yoga companies? An idea this strong needs to be in the public domain :)

firebrand said on Nov. 24 '12

No Dan, it just sits there on the internets like a sculpture. When I designed it there wasn't a company called Yoga Australia.

Now there is.
