Clever. It's modern and yet it seems to mimic an East Asian character. Interesting that you've dropped the national symbol. You could make a merlion out of the S and G %3B)

Very nice. Alas, this would never past muster via a government committee. It's way too nice for that.

@ darrel: you hit the nail on the head... after 18 months here working for huge corporations (quit a few governmental), i can only agree with your statement.

Great mark - very Asian in look and feel. Love the simplicity of the type underneath as well.

made the icon a bit smaller, was too heavy. Composition is fine in my opinion.

@ oximax, cheers for that soldis capital link, i see the similarities but can honestly say that i never saw this logo before - don't really like the type too. Mine was conceived making sketches on a piece of paper during a drink at a singapore bar - I think i still have those somewhere. It was originally intended for another (commissioned but unfortunately canned) huge project - related to singapore branding, but if i told you i'll have to kill you all.. :)

i think this one is awesome however - at a government level, they're less likely to go with an 'monogram' logo and want a 'mark' of some type that represents the country. try to capture the feeling of the country or promote its assets - kinda like an 'olympics' style logo. the mark usually represents something about the country while also representing harmony, and competition.%0D*worth some thought anyway.

I believe you. It has happened to me also. It is very difficult to do a design that it does not remind to other one. Anyhow yours seems to me better

Hey Mister Jones, do you mind me asking what typeface you used here? It's classy - not too corporate not too modern. Just right, as Baby Bear would say.
