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!

Thanks gthobbs! really appreciate the comment.
@Logomotive: Agree completely. I'll upload the version with his name larger. YAY! So glad you like it!

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.
@type08: Yep font is Anivers
@Koodoz: Great suggestion, I'll be trying that for sure.
@itsgareth: Who says plumbers can't be funky too? ;) 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.

@logomotive: Glad the colour has relevance and that you pointed that out! Wish I could say i'd intentionally done it.
