Ssssssssssssmoken'. When done right, gradents can really pop. I like the neg. space too. How did you do the yellowish hi-lights? I'd like to see a close-up of the snake if possible :).

gyui said on Nov. 16 '08

wow, great mark logomotive!:)

logomotive said on Nov. 16 '08

Thanks guys, yeah joder, I'll try to upload just the Snake. Just gradients working for one to another that's all.

logomotive said on Nov. 16 '08

joder, I really appreciate the fact the you noticed the negative space also.

revolvedesign said on Nov. 16 '08

mike, please write a logomotive's gradient style tutorial for us...
it looks nice and shiny and glossy :)

revolvedesign said on Nov. 16 '08

cerise said on Nov. 16 '08

firebrand said on Nov. 19 '08

Nice to inspire OB1 ;)

TC said on Nov. 19 '08

beautiful execution

gthobbs said on Nov. 19 '08

Can't believe I forgot to comment on this. Beautiful snake. Excellent rendering.

OcularInk said on Nov. 19 '08

Your skills never cease to amaze me!

THEArtistT said on Nov. 19 '08

It is gorgeous. I see you've done several snake logos (including an odd toad). Herpetologist maybe?

struve said on Nov. 19 '08

the shading is top notch--really leaps off the screen. i like the type as well and its in perfect proportion to the mark

logomotive said on Nov. 19 '08

^ LOL yeah sounds kind of bad, learned something new today the word "Herpetologist". Thanksssssssss guys glad you like ribb..it!

ranganath said on Nov. 19 '08

Very sexy hot ;D

innov8ional said on Nov. 20 '08

Awesome color usage and an excellent flow. Well done!

logomotive said on Nov. 21 '08

Thanksssss guys:-)

joder said on Nov. 21 '08

Yup negitive space is a often overlooked tool in the tool box. Love the mate-up of the mark to the shape of the "S" too.

gorz said on Nov. 23 '08

Congrats! really cool logo!

logomotive said on Nov. 24 '08

joder, thanks for noticing.
gorz, thanks glad you like it.

itsgareth said on Nov. 24 '08

Woah! I think I must be going blind! I totally missed this, really impressive.

andyb said on Nov. 25 '08

Great design logomotive! Sent an e-mail to the address from your website, is it a current one?

logomotive said on Nov. 25 '08

^ thanks gareth, you've been pretty impressive yourself lately :-)
andyb, sorry have not seen it email is Mike_at_logomotive.net

jonvic said on Jan. 28 '09

Incredible :) I must say at first I miss judged you :p The first thing I saw from you was your homepage, your work is something else.
what's with that negative space your talking about? Can't see it(off course).

tanyildiz said on Jan. 29 '09

as if jump out from the display. excellent work!!

logomotive said on Jan. 29 '09

^^ Thanks.
jonvic, just the equal balanced spacing issue, that's all.

jonvic said on Jan. 29 '09

Ok, I see, it's a nice detail :)
I love it but there's something bugging me...
...maybe it's envy :p

mabu said on Feb. 05 '09

If it's possible, I think uhm... I'm in love with this logo. It is so tight.

twinsrpnt said on Feb. 16 '09

Oh man, your snake is so cool. Love how symmetrical it is. Nice 3d effects.

jashsayani said on Apr. 10 '09

This is the best !!!

PenaltyKillah said on May. 27 '09

A very good throwback to the nineties. Will be one of those timeless logos that will stick with a company for decades. Congratulations!

nido said on May. 27 '09

man this is so nice... im actually jealous!

janzabransky said on May. 28 '09

This is tip of the iceberg of logo design. One of my top favorites of all time. I am fascinated watching this. Its still like a bath for my eyes :-)

logomotive said on May. 29 '09

Thanks guys, but I'm so sorry to inform you but this is sooooo fake. I made it up. My acrylic paintings are also made up and I will have to tell my clients both who want to buy my paintings and or logos that they are fake and not for real. These are just optical illusions a figment of your imagination. If I had a REAl client not sure I can be creative enough to solve your problem. Sorry but this is just fake stuff.

nido said on May. 29 '09

a fake!!!... oh well.. thats just killed it!.. kernings well off too.. now you mention it!

logomotive said on May. 29 '09

^ yeah! want your vote back =)

evaanno said on Jun. 01 '09

thats awsome great job !

Hayes Image said on Jun. 01 '09

Those dogs!!

logomotive said on Jun. 01 '09

What now? the site is not working? what was it linked to?

logomotive said on Jun. 06 '09

FWIW, Crowdspring removed the stolen logo and will not sell. One win for us... Yeah.

Fluena said on Jul. 01 '09

Very nice.

logomotive said on Aug. 02 '09

^THAT is about the rudest thing I have seen done. AT least give some background or link on this design. You take a full space image yet give no background. WHERE did this come from?, who did it come from?, and when did they do it. While this is a bit different not sure that's suppose to be a snake or what but please have a little courtesy when posting. RUDE.

barryconvex said on Aug. 02 '09

"Where" is an easy question: http://www.logomaid.com/detail.php?uid=8612
(you simply view the image properties), I donīt know about the others.

epsilon said on Aug. 02 '09

Ah .. Logomaid .. I see they haven't learnt much from their "Simple Bits f*ckup":http://www.flickr.com/photos/simplebitsdan/42926559

fishinapond said on Aug. 02 '09

%@logomotive- first of all, I wasn't disrespecting you with my previous post. I was going to leave a note to inform you of what I found on the web but I had to step away from my pc really quick last night. I wasn't insinuating that you ripped this design. Actually I meant to say that YOU got ripped. Relax baby...you're still THE logo-branding god:-)%

logomotive said on Aug. 02 '09

fishinapond, Ok but just so you understand where I'm coming from. This particular design was blantantly ripped and tried being sold on crowdspring as a winning entry, I have battled this for a few months. Hey if someone did something like this concept prior to me I'm the first to admit and remove and it has happened before.

sandhya said on Aug. 25 '09


yet another rip off.

logomotive said on Aug. 25 '09

THANKS!! Sandhya. I could make some good money on this one with a good lawyer.

sandhya said on Aug. 25 '09

anytime. goodluck!

j-CAZ said on Aug. 25 '09

Duuuuuuuude, Sangam Cinemas? Its not even a design that looks "close" and is an obvious ripoff; this is a verbatim copy. Sorry to see this dude, I guess it comes with being one of the greats. I'd start cinema face punching, lol. They'd be like, "oww my faaaace, here's ur logo back sorry".

logomotive said on Aug. 25 '09

What does this have to do with Cinemas anyhow? Geez! Pay up people and you can have it.

Brandsimplicity said on Aug. 25 '09

Total rip off Mike, they did'nt even bother to change it. So wish we could gather a posse and do some linchin's

lundeja said on Aug. 25 '09

It's a popular one....

logomotive said on Aug. 25 '09

Boy I guess 11K views just here. No wonder.

logomotive said on Aug. 26 '09

http://www.sangamcinemas.com/ LOL look at the negative space.

lundeja said on Aug. 26 '09

Have you contacted them already or do I have to phone my Sicilian connections?

logomotive said on Aug. 27 '09

@Jared, yes on the first question. And perhaps on the second :) No response so far and I'm a very impatient person.

SANDHYA said on Aug. 27 '09

The design agency that Sangam hired probably ripped it from here is what I hear.

logomotive said on Aug. 27 '09

Sandhya, Well they have not responded, so I might have to do some digging here. Thanks.

doodlecow said on Sep. 01 '09

Hey mike! is this the link to your website???? http://www.logomotive.net/... because if this is it.. im really freaking out! :o

doodlecow said on Sep. 01 '09

I did complain to them about the fake logo to crowdsprung... and they responded.. i can forward you that mail mike... but before that better check what happened to your website

LOGOMOTIVE said on Feb. 09 '10

Holy cow doodlecow, thanks some lame duck hijacked my site. Thanks.

wizemark said on Apr. 18 '10

it`s in the club now.

logomotive said on Apr. 18 '10

Thanks wizemark, but what club?

JoePrince said on Apr. 18 '10

I think Srdjan is referring to Club 100 Mike...you're on the VIP list already though so don't worry about it.

logomotive said on Apr. 18 '10

Joe, OH I thought I was in some special snake club or something. I'm on a VIP list? Not what they say when I try to get into those clubs :)

wizemark said on Apr. 19 '10

Haha :)

smartinez said on May. 21 '10

I like this design, but would like to tweak it for my Christian ministry I am starting (savingsinnersministries). Do you mind?

OcularInk said on May. 21 '10

Just curious, smartinez, are you asking to use it for free?

logomotive said on May. 22 '10

^ me too :)

logomotive said on Aug. 12 '10

The Irony in that.

s7even said on Sep. 10 '10

Alas.. it seems the pond has been infiltrated by spam douchebags posting thinly veiled attempts to rank with google.

Land Cruiser For Sale said on Sep. 23 '10

so far its good, but i found a similar concept like this here in the net but i forgot the URL of that

logomotive said on Sep. 24 '10

^ I'm sure you did.:)

logomotive said on Mar. 13 '11

^Thanks, No this was just vector here. Just using gradients.

type and signs said on Oct. 07 '11

great sign ... nice type!

FreddyBrown said on Apr. 22 '12

The colour works really well, congrats.

logomotive said on Dec. 27 '12

Belated Thanks and Freddy.

logomotive said on Dec. 27 '12

Meant TAS and Freddy.

totalsid said on Jul. 02 '13

I am interested to buy this logo if its not already sold. Please contact me at total.sid@gmail.com


logomotive said on Oct. 31 '13

Sorry Totalsid, it is Sold. But thanks for asking.

anchalan said on Nov. 24 '14

also seen on

logomotive said on Nov. 25 '14

Yes It is,.. they Stole it a few years ago. Notice how they had to use the same color scheme. This one has been ripped quite a few times.

hanaghansarah said on Feb. 25 '15

excellent looking logo

RobertGoldring said on May. 06 '15

I would be proud to use this logo on my business.
