Love this one Alen!

Type08 said on Dec. 22 '08

Dalius, thanks for the support... Always...

sdijock said on Dec. 22 '08

Very nice. Although, it's a little odd to have the red dot (food?) in the middle of the chopsticks. I think you could get away with moving the red dot down more towards the end of the chopsticks and still have it read as an "H". You might have to shift the chopsticks up a little too. Nice regardless. Fav'd.

Type08 said on Dec. 22 '08

Thanks, Sdijock! Letter H made of chopsticks also presents Japanese flag (I wanted it to be very obvious)... ;)

Clever concept, nicely done *Alen*!

etyl said on Dec. 22 '08

good idea

LoGoBoom said on Dec. 22 '08

I agree with sdijock...looks nice but the dot so high up the sticks bugs me.

Brandsimplicity said on Dec. 22 '08

Very nicely done Alen!

Type08 said on Dec. 22 '08

@ LoGoBoom: thanks, I explained why it's like that...

Henrique, thank you!

gyui said on Dec. 23 '08

I agree with LoGoBoom and Sdijock. The Japanese flag is not obvious IMO (due to size difference of the red sun on a flag and here), so for me, seeing the chopsticks higher up and the fish egg dot lower would work.

also a sidenote, if you are eating and holding food in the middle of the chopstick, it kind of gives the impression of someone who is a noobie at using chopsticks. Holding food at the end is the way to go :)

Still like the concept Type08 :)

Type08 said on Dec. 23 '08

Gyui, thanks!

shirazk said on Dec. 23 '08

Wonderful. I agree about the flag not being obvious, but it really doesn't matter. great job.

fogra said on Dec. 23 '08

Well done Alen. I actually saw the Japanese flag right away!

Type08 said on Dec. 23 '08

Thank you, Tania!

firebrand said on Jan. 13 '09

Good work on this one, Alen. It reads well too.

Type08 said on Jan. 13 '09

Thanks a lot, Roy!

OcularInk said on Jan. 13 '09

Very clever logo, Alen. It really does read well. Only thing I might have done differently is add more spacing between each of the letters. I think it needs more breathing room. Ya know?

Type08 said on Jan. 13 '09

Kevin, thanks a lot! I have tried that and unfortunately it reads S U S I I I in that case...

OcularInk said on Jan. 13 '09

Not if you kept the chopstick/H the way it is. You don't have to add space between the chopsticks and red circle. Treat that as a letter. Then add some space between the other letters to match the negative space between the two chopsticks. Make sense? Either way, it looks nice.

sebastiany said on Feb. 04 '09

Great logo

Thanks Vadim!

logophil said on Jul. 12 '16

I was recently in the beautiful Russian city of Vladimir and went to sushi cafe. I don't think that the designer "stole"b-but what a coincidence. And the work you do is great

alijilani51 said on Jul. 12 '16

great work

type08 said on Jul. 13 '16

@logophil it's a bit of the stretch, but not in this case:
Just received the heads up about this case from Greece.

@ali thank you!

aalok89 said on Jul. 15 '16

hmm, maybe it depends on some situations, but don't chopsticks standing straight up symbolize death?

type08 said on Jul. 27 '16

Spoke with one of my clients from Japan, confirmed it's all good.

climaxdesigns said on Jul. 28 '16

awesome, glad this worked out

chanpion said on Jul. 29 '16

'chopsticks standing straight up symbolize death', this image is usually only applicable when chopsticks are stabbed upright into a bowl of rice which depicts the burning and offering of incense sticks to the dead.

Spot-on. Great work
