Logo for a NZ based offset printing co. The infinity mark is primarily intended to represent the winding path of a sheet of paper through a printing press.
Oh thats hot,well done Steven!**p.s have you tryed it without the vertical line?
wow, beautiful piece! he ebst I have seen for a printing in along time, agree with Relevant. Nicely done.
thats so cool i could kick you where it would really hurt!!!... :)
I agree with Relevant, it's nice to see a printshop logo without the CMYK colors.*Cool work s7even! I like a lot!
thanks for the kind words everyone.*@ brandsimplicity yeah I have tried it with and without the line and it works both ways. I hear between the lines what you are saying and it is possibly unnecessary but there is something about it with the line that reinforces the premium feel. So yeah I prefer it in there for now and figure it by no means defines the mark so if in the future it becomes redundant it could be removed without sacrificing recognition.**Personally I am looking forward to seeing how it will look when I eventually animate it for application on the website.
very cool solution
I love how intricate this is, but how it still works very small. Nice one.**also agree with all of the previous points on CMYK and how cliche it is. **I love the idea of the 'print path'*and also how this shape represents the lemniscate symbol (infinity) **is this intentional?**Nice work.
sorry, haha **I just read the description again, and noticed you'd said 'interwoven infinty mark'
:) Cheers raja**no stress w-ill. yeah the rationale was always the paper path/infinte print concept but funnily enough as it turned out Taieri was named after a place but is also apparently Maori (NZs native language) for flow or flowing so the... %22lemniscate%22.. seemed appropriate. in this form it even reminds me a little of print registration marks.
I gotta say I really like this one. The mark works so well. I don't know if you intended for the mark to actually look maori, but it does remind me of maori patterns and carvings. Perfect!
bravo, this is very cool, works nicely.
@ NC thanks for the positive comments. As much as I would love for the resemblance to maori patterns to be on-purpose it was in fact pure luck. I did notice it had a certain pacific art feel to it at the %22eyeball the hell out of it%22 stage but as I say the initial justification for the mark was the print path/infinity concept.*cheers logomotive.. you have some incredible marks in your showcase!
The mark is brilliant. Very classy move not using cmyk. I like the line too. Font is perfect. A
This has to be one of my favorites. The simplicity and yet complexity is what got me.
Wow. Fantastic. This is incredibly classy.
I like how it looks like there is a gradient but it's just different shades, its pretty neat.
Really nice played with the shadow.
