Description: Barring unforeseen similar logos, and I mean exactly the same, this is the permanent Jared Lunde personal logo. I'm still working on a custom type, but I am incredibly satisfied with the mark. My initials are JAL and it was really important for me to include the A because my middle name has a very personal and deep meaning to me, as I share it with my deceased grandfather (too personal?). Beyond that though, the pointing upwards is really all about my philosophy on life. Overall I love the branding potential it has and I can't wait to use it.

Having stared at it for a bit, it does appear to have slight %22mustache%22:http://mooregroup.files.wordpress.com/2008/02/new_mustache020.jpg feel to it.

Hahaha I might have to grow some handlebars. This would no doubt give me more reason to smoke my pipe and mutter %22Mmmyes%22

logomotive May. 31 '09

Jared is growing a stache ya know, he planned this one. Just add a subtle smile (for A) and 2 dots for eyes now.

I'm also looking for some constructive thoughts on the website design %22here%22:http://logopond.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id%3D3218

Cerise, thanks! I think it's going to be a long and beautiful marriage.

very nice lundeja, i kind of also saw a road disappearing into the horizon, like it's the road ahead, an unknown road. and the stache too :)

I am still on the fence here, because i thought it has something to do with ice hockey? Maybe reflection is to blame :)

Thanks George.**Bojan - My backup plan with it was to put a bit of a mountain in it and give it to the Colorado Avalanche

Sindur, Mike, Andrei, John. Thank you very much.

lundeja Jul. 27 '09

Thanks Rudy, Neil. Means a lot :)**Neil, my Scottish slang translator is giving my mixed results on that one so I'll go with %22Big Yin%22 being equivalent to %22Big Shot%22. I need more lessons.

Bout' time. Congrats, Jared. Oh, and I dig your personal mark. It's very memorable.

barryconvex Jul. 29 '09

Sorry, but I see real nothing that comes close to the description. It looks very corporate, slick and somewhat nondescript. I definitely prefer http://logopond.com/gallery/detail/50749

Reply
lundeja Jul. 29 '09

Thanks Kevin, mister jones.**Barry %3D%3E Not supposed to jump out at you I guess. If I were to use a blatant JAL I think it would lose a lot of its memorability, originality, powerfulness, etc. The one you mentioned didn't really feel like me and I had been pointed in the direction of a few similar logos.

Reply
barryconvex Jul. 29 '09

Certainly there%B4s nothing wrong with a more subtle approach, my first impression was: inactive volcano, literally and not so literally. Plus another detail, I%B4m not sure if it%B4s intentional or not: The name seems a little off-center.

Not bad but it's reminiscent of the J. Lindeberg logo.

Reply
lundeja Aug. 18 '09

Unfamiliar with said logo and thank you for the link.

Reply
epsilon Aug. 18 '09

They _are_ different. They are in a completely different domain too.

Reply
fogra Aug. 18 '09

I have to agree with RBeezy on this coz they are the same colour %3B)

I see I let a lot of people down today. My days of deceit are over. Imma make you proud, paw.

Hey Jared, I just realised that despite admiring your mark I've been remiss in floating it. Done.*%5E Love the Irish sense of humour Sean.

I still like it very much Jared.

lundeja Oct. 24 '09

Thanks again Rudy. I've only recently found the required time to start to really build a brand around it (sort of a good thing, I guess - busy busy). Trying to get my website done by Monday so I'm in for a long weekend.

I think you need more color blends. :)

Reply
lundeja Nov. 05 '09

I was thinking pink

Reply
epsilon Nov. 05 '09

May I suggest light gray

Reply
lundeja Nov. 05 '09

Light gray is wayyyy too flashy. I might go total simplicity, you know, white on white or something.

Reply
epsilon Nov. 05 '09

Can't wait to see it :)

%22I might go total simplicity, you know, white on white or something.%22 Hahahahaha!!!**You know, I wasn't quite sure about this one in the beginning, but I've really grown to like it. All the subtle and minor tweaks to the mark are well worth it. The type compliments the mark well too. Good job, bud.

Reply
firebrand Nov. 06 '09

Yea, I really like the type.

Reply
barryconvex Nov. 06 '09

Seriously, it%B4s a relief to see you%B4ve dropped the depressing light grey.

siah-design Nov. 06 '09

Hey Jared - surprised to see I've never commented on this. Really like the type and the mark is cool, too.**One MINOR thing that is bugging me right now is the gray for the mark is just a tad darker than the gray for the type. Is this a conscious decision?**Grats!

Reply
lundeja Nov. 06 '09

Thanks Kevin, Barry, Siah.**@Siah - You're right, it is. I forgot to switch out the color of the type when I updated the mark on it. At least it still matches, lol.

Reply
lundeja Nov. 06 '09

Whoops, thanks to Roy, too :D

Chad Sanderson Nov. 18 '09

Can't believe I haven't commented on this yet. Really classic logo Jared. Probably one of the ones that'll stick with me for a right long time. Cheers!*

Chad Sanderson Nov. 18 '09

I never say 'Cheers' in real life. Logopond is messing with my mind.
