Anything similar out there? Thanks!

lundeja said on Feb. 08 '09

well... office strategies http://logopond.com/gallery/detail/40787 entered my head, but they really aren't that similar.

Type08 said on Feb. 09 '09

@Lundeja: Thank you mate! I think that OS was inspired by the concept of the chess game (graphic/brand) and this one directly by the elements of crest/castle...
@Relevant: LOL ;)

mcdseven said on Feb. 09 '09

love it, beautiful mark. Only gripe is to separate the WineKingdom. Would you consider using a serif font?

Type08 said on Feb. 09 '09

I tried with the serifs first, but then it seems like to much is going on... Clean mark, clean elegant typography... Thanks, Paul!

Really great stuff, I think the typography works well with the mark.

Type08 said on Feb. 25 '09

Thanks a lot, Alex! I wanted something appropriate for the web but elegant and sophisticated at the same time.

Mike mine a merlot, I like it (the logo and the wine)

ranganath said on Feb. 25 '09

Nice man

logomotive said on Feb. 25 '09

Alen, since you have a green flag, IMO the base looks like an upside down T so I have been trying to figure out why it is not connected to the glass? I think the mark would be stronger if it were connected. It speaks volumes enough no need to make matters more confusing.

Type08 said on Feb. 26 '09

@ Gvandoni, Straycloud, Ranganath: thanks a lot! :)
@ Mike: the upper part of the glass is in a form of the crest and the 'old' flag so the form of the glass reminded me on those small 'table flag' holders. I didn't want to lose the lower sharp point of it... Thanks a lot!

mabu said on Feb. 26 '09

Super cool mate. I really like the simplicity.

elmickeylozano said on Feb. 26 '09

Although a tower it represent a castle, maybe a crown would represent a kingdom, rather than a fortress... No? Have you tried anything with the bottle?
Or maybe a burgundy drop with a castle form or reflexion? Just a friendly suggestion.

Type08 said on Feb. 26 '09

@ Mabu: thanks mate!
@ Mickey: those are all great ideas. Crown is cool, but if you take it further, remind me of the 'king' that wasn't 'hidden' in some castle/fortress. :) Sometimes we have to chose the way but I love when some logo/brand offers you options for further sub-branding. I appreciate your comment and thank you for suggestions.

rockwelldesign77 said on Mar. 20 '09

I think its a little more than coincidence that you loved this logo so much: http://logopond.com/gallery/detail/40787
But i really like this logo you did

cmeyers said on Apr. 07 '09

nice man. i do see that the bottom could look like an upside down t, but only after the one guy mentioned it. to fix that issue, i would maybe make the base of the glass curve up into the stem a little bit rather than it being a straight 90 degree. but i don't even see that as an issue, just a thought. i do love it though. great job.

Type08 said on Apr. 07 '09

Hey Corey, thanks for your thoughts.
