Absolutely electrifying! I'm stunned.
Ok thank god I'm out of puns.

fogra said on Oct. 20 '08

nataliav said on Oct. 20 '08

way too literal

logoholik said on Oct. 20 '08

^ which is main advantage of this design. I must say again that this delivers so much character with so little elements! Bravo!

brandsimplicity said on Oct. 20 '08

Love the power of this!

chng! said on Oct. 20 '08

lol excelente!

dikkers said on Oct. 20 '08

Shocking[ly awesome] logo

Glenn said on Oct. 20 '08

I tried my hand at a plug-face-logo, but I spent like 2 minutes on it and it turned out mondo crappy. This looks phenomenal, I love it.

rambal said on Oct. 20 '08

shocked... Excellent one..

nexqunyx said on Oct. 20 '08

This is exactly why little kids like sticking their fingers in electrical outlets. They see a tiny face! LOL Fantastic logo:)

fogra said on Oct. 21 '08

@nataliav: That was my intention.
@Tonfue: Lol. Thanks, I think :)
Thanks again to everybody.

Jurastapark said on Oct. 21 '08

Its really nice.

davidairey said on Oct. 21 '08

Nice execution, Fogra. Sockets are different here in Northern Ireland but the idea is obvious to see. Keep it up.

mister jones said on Oct. 21 '08

This blows my mind. So simple, yet so powerful. Genius...

gordie_delini said on Oct. 21 '08

i laughed when i saw this mark - really nice work :D

bjmramage said on Oct. 21 '08

I have seen this done before. though it was probably a photo for an ad. Cannot remember the company though.


fogra said on Oct. 21 '08

Thanks everyone.

texprintguy said on Oct. 21 '08

peistah said on Oct. 21 '08

Love it!

saawan said on Oct. 21 '08


abu4net said on Oct. 22 '08

so cute! powerful... welldone mate.

Matheus said on Oct. 22 '08

the mark is awesome Fogra, I just don't know about the type you used. The mark itself makes the type unnoticed.

fogra said on Oct. 22 '08


graeme said on Oct. 22 '08

What is this for?

fogra said on Oct. 22 '08

It's just for fun or for the craic as I usually say.

jennyb said on Oct. 23 '08

This is super creative and unique, well done!

graeme said on Oct. 24 '08

Oh okay. Well its a nice observation. Outlets do look like that. But trying to think of how to apply it might be where the creative part comes in. Any thoughts?

I suppose anything that delivers surprising news about electricity may work. "Surprise! Electricity is a renewable resource! Shocking."

With most things, I appreciate cleverness in application as with all things derived from observation the actual application is the real challenge, I'd love to see this logo get there.
Thanks for the post! :)

graeme said on Oct. 24 '08

How about a trendy contemporary high-end electronics store?

nulio said on Jan. 03 '09


Mogster said on Apr. 02 '09

Ar fheabhas! Saw loads of ur logos and was very excited when I found out ur from Mayo. LOVE this one, so cute

fogra said on Apr. 02 '09

Go raibh maith agat (Thank you) :)

mabu said on Apr. 04 '09

Excellent! Kinda cute as well :-)

logomotive said on May. 16 '09

Why do you think my mind thought of this? because it had so much impact on me. This and your flower/guitar are my fave =)

fogra said on May. 16 '09

Thanks bud :)

MomentumMagazine said on Jun. 24 '09

Such an awesome design. I love your work!

fatalis said on Jun. 24 '09

Not very international, though, since the outlets look different in many parts of the world.

fogra said on Aug. 01 '09

@LogoMonitor: Thanks for the heads-up but are you blaming me or them?

fogra said on Aug. 01 '09

@LogoMonitor: Well Mr. Robert McGuire, (AKA, McGuire Design), just because I highlighted one of your logos as inspired from another logo doesn't mean you have the right to hide under a newly generated username account and try to discredit myself and other designers on here!

lundeja said on Aug. 01 '09

Funny he takes the time to point this logo out, but this one is totally legitimate in his eyes:


Come on, Robert.

logomotive said on Aug. 01 '09

I don't know who is who anymore. If you gonna call someone out, show your face. BTW that logo is not even close IMO.

firebrand said on Aug. 01 '09

Bit of a sly way of going about things and poor advert for Brandstack IMO.
Makes you wonder how many people are hiding behind these 'no logo' usernames specifically to attack other members.

lundeja said on Aug. 01 '09

"http://www.brandstack.com/users/profile/LogoMonitor":http://www.brandstack.com/users/profile/LogoMonitor Oh wow, Sean. He deleted the Brandstack account and the comment on the time logo now that he's been figured out. They really do think they are sly.

lundeja said on Aug. 01 '09

*backs off amicably* :)

alenami@gmail.com said on Aug. 26 '09

Simply genius.

fogra said on Sep. 07 '09

Yes, I am very aware of these sockets in existence on vector stock sites.

fogra said on Nov. 01 '09

^ Cheers, David. I really only created this logo as a double entendre on an everyday object but I guess I don't need to explain myself.

lundeja said on Nov. 25 '09

^Cool site, Alex. Thanks for posting that.

OcularInk said on Nov. 25 '09

^ Yes, thanks, Alex. Awesome!

fogra said on Nov. 25 '09

Yep, that's a great idea.

joeydee said on Nov. 26 '09

WOW! is all i have to say dude :)

logopunk said on May. 09 '10

hyperborea said on Mar. 12 '11

I never commented on this Sean but just want you to know that it is in my favs for a long time because I like it!

fogra said on Mar. 13 '11

Thanks mate. Same goes for your Port of Kinsale logo.

Iflexion said on Apr. 07 '11
