what they said. nice work.

OcularInk said on Jun. 25 '08

Interesting for sure. The dot over the 'i' could scale up slightly. Nice job though.

davidairey said on Jun. 25 '08

Certainly original (to me anyway) which is fantastic. Floated.

Lovin' the depth and angles.

hharrison said on Jun. 29 '08

Love it. Great colors. Not sure that the dot over the "I" is needed. Especially given that all the other letters are uppercase... Overall - striking work.

saawan said on Jun. 30 '08

The first time onlooker would read it as DAVD if that dot is missing, hharrison. The I is incorporated along with that D and that can be possible only with that dot. Great concept!

huyendesigner said on Jul. 13 '08

absolutely like it !

hharrison said on Jul. 29 '08

Yeah, the image would have to be changed a bit if the dot was removed. Not much though. Just would have to move the D over a pinch and add another color in between it and the I. The i being lowercase isn't that big of a deal though. Not many folks would notice it. Just a suggestion. Great work either way...

It took me forever to see the negative space correctly in this. Not a fault of the design, by any means. 25 years looking into bright light has left me near blind, unfortunately. Anyway, that is my excuse for not seeing what is obviously brilliant. Still, even when I could not see the negative space, I thought the positive color sections still read David pretty clearly. This is definitely unique. And I've only said that once before.

NeilMcDonald said on Sep. 26 '08

Near blind? Wow, so can you see logo's?

THEArtistT said on Oct. 22 '08

Light tables (mostly) and computer screens. Light tables aren't used as much in graphic design as they were, but computer screens are still a big bright light you have to stare into in order to work. Back lighting helps. Don't be like me and wait too long. Use lights behind you to offset the brightness of the computer screen. It will help save your eye site.

Staring at fine little amberlyth cuts (or ruby if you preferred) was even tougher. Not to mention the fine coating of spray mount that covered your eyes on a daily basis.

THEArtistT said on Oct. 25 '08

Yup, exactly. Spent years cutting CMYK by hand for screen press. I preferred rubylyth. Along with a lot of trace illustration. Later on we switched to computer. Too late for my eyes. CMYK separations and illustration using a mouse caused my right hand to go bad. I've been a left handed mouse user ever since. Makes it hard for righties to borrow your computer. ;) Oh, we had a spray mount shrine to bugs. A huge bug got caught once. We never did figure out what it was. People with hairy arms suffered the most from spray mount. We held up a piece of plexy to keep from breathing it and save our eyes at the time. Ever got burned from the hot wax for newspaper mounting?
