FRICKEN GREAT! just eliminate that right side flare. FAV!

j-CAZ said on Sep. 03 '09

This is fantastic. I agree with Mike on the flare too.

lundeja said on Sep. 03 '09

I like your style, like your moves. Immediately got my attention in the gallery.

fogra said on Sep. 03 '09

I'm really jealous. Well done buddy :)

Type08 said on Sep. 03 '09

Guys, thanks a lot, you made my evening! :)
Mike and J, the idea was to keep the visual elements opened (bottle in this case) and to create a form that might send out the point of 'continuous efforts': that's why I suggested to use the multicolor lines in application phase (label design, brochures, t shirts, posters, etc) as the secondary graphic elements that will start at that point from the mark...
Lunde and Sean, 1 love! :)

logomotive said on Sep. 03 '09

IMO not needed though and is kinda distracting, as it is already open?? but hey not stepping on toes cause I love it regardless.

Firebrand said on Sep. 03 '09

No probs Mike, I really appreciate your comment. Who knows, maybe we will adjust that a bit, it's still some sort of WIP...

jldavisdesign said on Sep. 10 '09

This concept is great. I'm new to LogoPond so tell me if I'm out of line...Please. Being a stickler for clean lines, the thickness in some parts seem to be arbitrary (for example: lower-left of bottle is very different than the bottom-right). If you glance at the logo the bottle is taken over by "Message." Since the bottle image is strong, would the client have a problem making the bottle slightly larger? If not, bolder colors may bring the type and image together more. The one thing (among others) that is very successful is the use of the darker color on the area of the message in the bottle which puts the emphasis on the letter instead of the bottle. Good work. :]

Type08 said on Sep. 11 '09

Hello, JLD! To reply on your comment: lines of the mark - I used freehand style on purpose (personal, direct)... Size of the mark - it is really more about the core brand name then the graphic itself (see the description) so I spent most of the time here achieving the balance that would support that... Bright colors used for the mark - purpose of the logo and connection with the charity idea (see the description)... Thanks for stopping by! :)

emesghali said on Sep. 11 '09

wow. amazing. i agree with removing the flare, unless it becomes more subtle and kind of fades to a soft point. i would also beef up the whole stroke so you can see it better from a distance as well. great work!

sebastiany said on Sep. 11 '09

Hey Dan, long time no see! Thanks mate!

dikkers said on Nov. 15 '09

No worries! mmm yes, i don't frequent this site as much as i'd like, own logo work has been a bit skint of late. Good to see your showcase as impressive as ever though!

Houston-we said on Nov. 17 '09

This is fantastic, Alen :)

I bet this one can join Club 100 by the end of the week too Alen! :)

Type08 said on Jan. 12 '10

Yah never know! :)

Thrasher317 said on Jan. 12 '10

I mean no disrespect when I say this, but I have always felt this logo could have been better. I love the mark itself, but I've always hated the colors. The gradients ruin it for me. I think I would MUCH rather see a B&W version than the way it is now. Again, I mean no disrespect. It's just me personal taste. Has this been used on their website? I would like to see some examples of it being used.

Type08 said on Jan. 12 '10

I'll post b/w version as well. Client still doesn't use this in action but that's up to him and his plan.

raja said on Jan. 21 '10
