I Can Fly

by Raja • Uploaded: Mar. 12 '10

Description: PROFILE:

Revised concept of previous "I Can Fly" logo. This logo will be used by Wasinc for a program based in China that will enable the less fortunate to attain the skills to pilot an airbus. This will be a decal on the tail of a Boeing 777 airplane.

How awesome is that?


I always dream to fly, so this didn't take much inspiration. That's actually me you see in the logo.

i love it!

JoePrince said on Mar. 12 '10

I really like the concept, just don't care for the way his arms/hands look. They seem like wooden pegs to me.

nitish.b said on Mar. 12 '10

agree wid joe, the hands look odd...but concept rocks.

raja said on Mar. 12 '10

thank you for looking

yes the arms and hands will need some anatomical remodeling but I still want to capture the morphing-intoiwing idea

mcdseven said on Mar. 12 '10

really like this...

grapeape said on Mar. 13 '10

Aggree that the hands do look odd but is the perspective on the shadow correct?

raja said on Mar. 14 '10

thanks mcdseven

grapeape, that shadow and the figure were based on natural real life lighting and shadows, however that concept is that of an airplane so that maybe why you question the perspective. Although the angles are from a real setting, the airplane shadow which is conceptual (flight), is not exactly that of the figure.

thanks for looking

raja said on Mar. 14 '10

upon re-reading, ^ that did not make any sense

zephyr said on Mar. 14 '10

Very nice, Raja! Interested to see your choice of type for this one.

raja said on Mar. 14 '10

thanks Chad and zephyr

regarding type...it's going to depend heavily on Chinese translation and the size of the airplane panel I will be working with, which is undetermined at this point

I just love mentioning airplane I think.

did i mention...lol

raja said on May. 12 '10

hey thanks guys

jwagnercreative said on May. 29 '10

wow.. the logo looks amazing and after viewing it I read the description for it.. I would really like to know how you got the chance to design for an opportunity like this one. Congrats again.. One day I hope a logo designed by myself ends up on something as grand as a Boeing airbus lol

raja said on Jun. 01 '10

thanks jwagner!

The company approached me (one of the pilots) and asked if I would be interested in designing a logo for them on a tight budget. I said yes I would, but only if it will be displayed on a plane. They agreed, and that was that!

You never know what or when opportunities arise.

mabu said on Jul. 17 '10

Yup, awesome.

oski said on Jul. 18 '10

Nice of course.

raja said on Jul. 21 '10

thank you guys, I am a fan of both your works

logotivity said on Aug. 23 '10

This is really great work raja.

mcdseven said on Aug. 25 '10

surprised this piece never made the gallery, there really is something special about it, it always makes me come back to a have a look.

firebrand said on Aug. 25 '10

^Because there's no type Paul.

mcdseven said on Aug. 25 '10

@firebrand, cheers.

raja said on Aug. 26 '10

thanks fellas

I think for this (or any logo without lettering for that matter) to make the gallery, it would have to be already in heavy recognition

vasvari said on Feb. 26 '11

AAAgghhh!!! That suks big time, too close to be only a coincidence.

raja said on Oct. 04 '11

Thanks s7even, for pointing that out. Looks like it was done by Logo Design Works whom in the past have used my work without permission. I notified them and they were quick to give credit.

See here:


...where they used the CityCliq logo in their blog.

This was originally brought to our attention by Jerron via the LP forums, see thread here:


Rudy, hmmm.

raja said on Feb. 07 '12
