smaller i saw eye glasses, but now i see 2 bottles... where is this going?

ddd said on Dec. 29 '08

I see the profile of 2 bottles. But when I look again I see reading glasses. Nice dual effect :D

itsgareth said on Dec. 29 '08

Good Good. Thanks.

gyui said on Dec. 29 '08

bottles, eyes, binoculars

itsgareth said on Dec. 29 '08

Updated ;)

smartinup said on Dec. 29 '08

very very nice gareth, after a bottle thats about how i see too.

gyui said on Dec. 29 '08

your mark is really clever itsgareth, is there a version with color? black is such a stark color, quite the contrast from the wine world IMO.

firebrand said on Dec. 29 '08

Top work, Gareth. You're on a roll mate.

itsgareth said on Dec. 29 '08

Cheers Roy, shall we start and Ingerland chant on the pond? ;)

gyui - this logo is at a prelim stage, colour will be added eventually

OcularInk said on Dec. 29 '08

One of your smartest designs yet.

grabbdesigns said on Dec. 29 '08

great concept gareth!

Type08 said on Dec. 29 '08

G, good one! :)

ddd said on Dec. 29 '08

now the typo leaves a bit to be desired IMO. But the mark is spot on.

logomotive said on Dec. 29 '08

beer goggles.

itsgareth said on Dec. 29 '08

wine glasses ;)

logomotive said on Dec. 29 '08

well if they don't gop for the "propsed design" you can try another route :-) never heard of wine goggles LOL good one.

logomotive said on Dec. 29 '08

^looks as if I've had 1 too many.

itsgareth said on Dec. 29 '08

Haven't we all!

Nice work. I get the concept. But for some reason I see a sagging bra every now and then. LOL

itsgareth said on Jan. 02 '09

Cris: haha whats up bud?

Bart: That's just wishful thinking ;)

cerise said on Jan. 02 '09

nice in a too many sugar lumps kind of way

cerise said on Jan. 02 '09

It means Positive, Good, Great, in an aspect greater than 'cool'.
mostly used by headbangers, metalheads, skaters, surfers, and ninja turtles.
Cowabunga dudes!

tokostyler said on Mar. 31 '09

jenlogo said on Apr. 01 '09

This is great Gareth! Congrats on the feature!

Monime said on Apr. 03 '09

Very nice, but to me the bottles look like milk ones, more than wine. If they would be a little slimer .... :)

cmeyers said on Apr. 07 '09

minasdesign said on Apr. 07 '09

joelacom said on May. 05 '09

Incredible. Very Cool

ethereal said on May. 31 '09

Love this!

Fluena said on Jul. 01 '09

It's very good, smart idea. I see two meenings in drawing, which is very good. Aesthetics, on the other hand, could use more work.

JF said on Aug. 31 '09

I love this one -- concept, execution, graphics, everything is fantastic. Nice, nice work Gareth!

fauzone said on Jul. 24 '10

You designed it? Great!

philipbrunner said on Aug. 11 '10

Awesome concept!

JoePrince said on Aug. 12 '10

Always liked this one Gareth.

itsgareth said on Aug. 12 '10


@fauzone yes I designed it :)

simon™ said on May. 02 '11

Really clever! I'm glad you designed it. ;-)

itsgareth said on Jun. 26 '11

Cheers Simon :)

Dan. said on Nov. 16 '11

I saw this one in your book which incidentally compelled me to create a logo pond account - this is visual communication at it's best. Well done.

Artgeko said on Feb. 17 '12

Wow- great idea!

itsgareth said on May. 03 '12

Thanks Dan, and I'm glad to hear that you joined :)

brandglow said on Jul. 19 '12
