OH yeah, sweet! I'm sure this was client driven to have plumbing large but I think people need to remember his name. I would think it would look nice to have James Forbes larger than plumbing. I'm loving it. FAV!

Very cool concept Jess. My only suggestion would be to lift the plumbing up a touch and scale it so that it's the width of the name James. Atm it seems a little distant from everything.

that's a flange, right? Nice work, colours are a little funky for a plumber though IMO.

Wow! thanks for all the comments and votes guys! really appreciate it. %0D*@type08: Yep font is Anivers%0D*@Koodoz: Great suggestion, I'll be trying that for sure.%0D*@itsgareth: Who says plumbers can't be funky too? %3B) i know what you meant though. I'm not sure its a flange as such, I'm not up with the lingo, but its certainly representative of pipes and joins!

logomotive Sep. 18 '08

Actually I really liked the colors and yes that is a flange, where the pipes meet and gives the logo a solid industrial feel. Plumbers use a lot of copper and copper turns exactly this color (Statue of Liberty). I think the color is perfect for that reason.
