Combining a hand with a coffee cup. A) Is it clear enough? B) Has this been done before?
3 months ago
Clever Sean, I didn't noticed it right away though, it immediately looked like a hand to me. Maybe because those coffee icons have three of those 'steam strokes'?
Took me exactly one extra second to see the hand, but it came through pretty clearly for me. Digging it.
I instantly saw the hand. Have you looked at making the handle a bit more defined?
The cup stuck out to me first, but I thought it was full of breadsticks.
Like where its going Sean.
What if maybe you brought the thumb up from the bottom of the cup without it touching at the top. Might take on a look of a handle and more like the thumb.
Hope your following me.
great start, but the thumb just looked a tad stumbie to me.
but you know me I'm a bit odd. :)
I was wondering if that was a mug and also wondering if that was a hand. I think the color helps communicate both. Never seen it before.
Looks like a monkey paw/hand to me. ;]
I'm right there with you @Mike Bruner !
Definitely noticed the coffee cup before that hand. Not sure if the "Thumb/Handle" reads like intended.
You could probably exaggerate the handle/thumb to look more like both. Diggin' the brown tones.
Saw both cup/mug and hand right away...couldn't tell you which one I saw first. Great work!!!
I love the idea. I think Mr. Bruner is right though.
I saw the hand right away but not the coffee cup until I read the title. What if the thumb/handle had a hole in it to mimic a thumbnail? Not sure.
Hmm, I see a cup full of cigars. I think Mike's suggestion could help.
I think the "decaf" version would be clear with just the middle finger up, or animated version like that where the other fingers go down and the word "decaf" fades in below it. Great work.
I see.. a bird.
Saw the hand, didn't see the cup.
I'd take the height of the pinky down a pit, the thumb out a tad, just a thought!
That's like a classic Depeche Mode hairdo,
but in the morning.
Perhaps the fingers could be rendered more like steam making the union of two disparate elements more natural/cohesive?
Work on the handle.
Lots of good advice here, thanks fellas!
Saw a hand with a deformed thumb (in the dribbble feed). Would have taken me a bit longer to see coffee had I not started reading the comments.
Is this for an emblem for a superhero that can spray coffee from his hand?
I saw monochromatic turkey. I think it's missing a window in the handle possibly? Maybe I'm just hungry.
What if you make fingers wavy? So it also looks a bit like smoke?
