Working on two versions for Silverback: a detailed one as shown here and a super simplified one based on my usual more geometric design process. I very much like the strong, proud and casually calm and relaxed character of this version, though I didn't want to get too much involved into polishing this concept as the client will probably go for the simplified geometric version anyway.
Note that this is not a finished version like I mentioned above, and I'm awere that the type sucks bigtime! As you can see the Silverback needs some more polish on the curves at the shoulder and its back leg, as well as a few other details. The Silverback type is a blurry fucked up version of Cubano.
Edit: bad bad experimentation of typography here, I know ;)

Really love that mark Gert.
Look forward to seeing the simplified version :) Really nice mark as it is now though.
Is there some kind of blur effect on the words?
@Joe - Thanks man, I think I'm going to walk through your shots and see what type perfectly matches this mark. Your suggestions are welcome. Cheers and have a peasant weekend!
@Ste - That's right. I put a blur on the type to match the mark. the final version of course shouldn't be blurry.
I don't like that font :) really nice mark! :)
@I'm Charlie - You're right, I think it took me a whole fucking minute to pick it from the list ;)
Lovely work like always!
really love this gorilla, details are awesome.
Love it how you keep it so simple yet so detailled.
@Gert van Duinen Geometry looks good for that type, but it need to be little thinner and "longer" because that mark is "huge" if you know what I mean :)
This is a win: http://cl.ly/Gkys
Looks super! the detail in the hair makes it so smooth.
@I'm Charlie - Gotcha! Besides, I'm a sucker for extended (very wide) type.
@Joe - haha! Definitely spot on! I just send it to the client like that!
@Helder - Thanks man, cheers!
I could almost touch that fur! because the difference between hair and fur is that hair doesn't stop growing and fur does, ever seen a monkey get a haircut? :) great work.
@Rudy - Hahahaha!
Awesome stuff! Great detailing with the fur but i personally prefer the other concept :)
and here it is !!!
Damn amazing as always, love the gray shading in there!
@Gert I love it. It's looking great so far!
