Agreed, beautiful logo. I think the background is what makes it...gives it the essence we all like. I also really like the detail in the orange backdrop near the face. Keep em coming!

looks real good

Petro said on Jul. 06 '09

I like coffee! And i like this logo! Belisimo! ;-)

logomotive said on Jul. 09 '09

This one has me scratching my head. I know I made a comment on it in regards to the upper lip being too dark and looking a little masculine, if you will. I also don't recall the designer. I am very confused here because I could have sworn it was Dale Harris logo or some other designer here. My apologies if I have been mistaken.

logomotive said on Jul. 09 '09

I know someone else out there knows what I'm talking about. I saw this over a year ago?? hummm...

studioink said on Jul. 12 '09

Dale Harris is one of the partners comprising Studio Ink. ;)

logomotive said on Jul. 12 '09

aha, see I'm not losing my mind after all. ;)

DJayzed said on Jul. 22 '09

i think ive seen this, its nice though

acusador said on Nov. 11 '09

total RIPOFF, you should be ashamed


firebrand said on Nov. 11 '09

@acusador Utter nonsense. Not remotely similar. I also recall you posting equally ridiculous accusations on my Lightbox logo.

JF said on Nov. 11 '09

I agree with firebrand. Not even close.

acusador said on Nov. 11 '09

Oh I see, if you rotate the logo and change the mouth and eyes and add some color to the hair is not a ripoff? I see, so the circle being the EXACT same size, and the nose and eyes being in the EXACT same position is just coincidence....right.

Check it yourself, you don't see it if you don't want to http://logopond.com/gallery/detail/84295

Thrasher317 said on Nov. 11 '09

You're wrong about the eye and nose being exact. They're similar but not the same. Compare your "proof" logo and this side by side. I do enjoy the drama though. /popcorn

logomotive said on Nov. 11 '09

Not to mention, read my comment and believe Dales upload was posted prior to the other Aug 08.

firebrand said on Nov. 11 '09

That's right Mike this was originally posted by the designer, Dale Harris, way before the Santa Isabel logo. Dale no longer participates on Logopond because of issues with Brandstack.

studioink said on Nov. 12 '09

Now this just got very interesting as far as I am concerned (this is Dale btw ;) ). I have just done a bit of research myself into our La Bella logo and what proof is out there on the web as to how long ago it was designed, and whilst I do not have any proof besides my own word that this was designed well before the August 10th 2008 date given on the other logo (the original concepts for this logo were presented to the client on the 15th of April 2008), I do however have proof that an early version of it was listed on a number of sites prior to August 10th 2008, including well known logo inspiration websites including Creattica.com (then faveup.com), Logosauce, Behance.net and of course Logopond on the 9th of August. (the ones I could find URLs for are listed below)


I personally find the fact that our logo was listed on all these sites and then a day later a similar logo was uploaded to Logopond VERY interesting.

logomotive said on Nov. 13 '09

way to wake people up ;)

studioink said on Nov. 13 '09

Well, I was just thinking about things and really there is much more to a successful identity program than just a logo, and thought that maybe we might show some of our identity rollouts.

Plus I reckon that this is something that LP has over BS, designers with real clients who roll out complete identity programs. Not just a quick logo and a goodbye ;)

logomotive said on Nov. 13 '09

Ha, I just hope your not starting a Behance trend here :) Impressive Dale.

studioink said on Nov. 13 '09

Cheers, nah not looking to do anything other than defend my work with that url I promise.

Thanks for your kind words, though I should make sure that people know that Studio Ink = Dale Harris Leah Hartley, as the work is collaborative in almost all instances with either one or the other of us leading each project, I really can't take the credit for our work on my own :)

studioink said on Nov. 13 '09

Hmm, the comments thing removed the plus between Leah's name and my name.. very strange..

brandsimplicity said on Nov. 13 '09

Hey Dale, very nice champ. I so wish that the pond would head more in this direction.

studioink said on Nov. 13 '09

Nah, definitely not looking to do anything other than defend our work with that url I promise.

Thanks for your kind words though I should make sure that people know that Studio Ink = Dale Harris plus Leah Hartley, in almost all instances all of the work is collaborative with each project either lead by one of the other of us. I can't take credit for our work on my own. ;)

logomotive said on Nov. 13 '09

HA, glitches are great! hey GRATS to both of you then and Leah is ringing a bell in my head?

studioink said on Nov. 13 '09

Thanks BrandSimplicity, I hope so to.

studioink said on Nov. 14 '09

Yeah she is a member here in her own right too. http://logopond.com/members/profile/13026

the mark feels like one that has already stood the test of time, if you get what I mean

jaumeAV said on Feb. 09 '10

ru_ferret said on Apr. 13 '10
