    Wip design. Would love to know if you see the bird/animal combo in the mark easily.

    Thanks breno. Is the concept seen quickly enough?

    beautiful work, James - it might need some refinments on the eye and nose. i don't like the leaves. perhaps get rid of those.

    I feel that the leaves help bring out the bird more. Unless it's obvious enough without them. If so, then I guess it's unnecessary.

    I like the idea. I see it pretty quickly. Are the leaves supposed to be a collar for the dog perspective?

    I do feel that the shapes/outlines benefit the bird over the dog. But I seem to see the dog first (probably because of the long nose) and as a dog he has a funny looking ear and face.

    Hope my two cents is helpful.

    I think by removing the leaves it will make the colors blend more.

    @Terry. Yes, they were to double as a collar.

    I've shown this to others prior to posting, and so far, some see the bird first, others the dog. It really doesn't matter. I was just hoping to have people take a second look at it. Felt that this would create more of a memorable mark.

    I love the leaves/dog tags. I think that really adds an extra element of surprise to the design. Nice work!

    Looking good buddy :)

    If you aren't dead set on the stick/leaves, I was thinking you could try a simple bordering line to contain the dog a bit more... Something like > THIS

    I've tried doing that too. It's a good idea to contain the dog more, but it also creates that space that doesn't fit with the bird.

    I guess it's an option. Thanks Michael.

    Saw the dog at first and then the carrot. Nice!

    I didn't see the bird first... I saw a dog with a branch in his mouth actually... I think maybe making the beak a bit smaller and improving the flow from head to beak would bring out the bird more, without affecting the dog much. The only reason the leaves don't work for me is the positioning... too much going on in that one spot for me.

    @Sergey. Thanks - that's what I had intended.
    @Matt. I've tried playing with beak size. It's hard when you're playing with two shapes when one small change can really effect the other animal/bird in a big way. Thanks for the comment.

    I saw the bird first. Not sure why. Good concept james.

    Great idea! Really cute shapes and nice color palette.

    I saw the bird first, I think due to the leaves. I think without them the dog would read first. I don't think you need the leaves, but the green is nice in terms of color. When I focus on the dog shape the leaves don't read as dog tags, rather I'm wondering why he has leaves on his neck.

    Interested to see where you take this!

    Yeah, I hear ya. On the other hand that random negative space does kind of look like a CAT... Ha! ;)

    Interesting michael. At first, I thought of doing a circle with the animals/bird inside but didn't work as well. Also, logomotive mike did create a circle with three animals inside already.

  23. Michael Spitz Michael Spitz

    Yeah I know that one Mike did... I think he's got a fish in there as well?

    In any case, again, definitely like the approach :)

    Didn't see the bird straight away, but loving the concept. Not a fan of the leaves either.
