    I was in love with A3, client chose C2 (a constant in designer's life)

    sinceramente me parece que el A3, es mas completo, integra la type con el isotipo y demás.

    :( shit happens yo.

    A2 and A3 are the best ones for me :-)

    Thanks @Nico Tzogalis, when I posted the sketches another user also referred me to that shot (as I said then, I envy that the execution is much better than mine).
    The thing is, I can't give up a good idea for a logo just because someone else had a similar one before. In that case I should stop designing because "almost everything" has been invented before in this global world.
    @Igor Garybaldi's logo is for a russian music-website, and mine is for an spanish mobile app. I really wanted the client to choose the A3 version, but I don't think that this logo and Igor's will collide in the future.
    Every identity has its own personality far beyond the logo and, in the end, this one is going to be completely different from Igor's.

    I think there is a small, but important, difference. A logo should be something unique, something where your brand be recognisable easily, without doubts.

    For example, one thing is to use a 'mark' or 'pin' to represent a location in a map (like many of us), is a good idea which works everywhere and It doesn't have to be 'unique'. On the contrary, using a recognisable logo/concept in another, is a very bad idea.

    You already have a lot of good ideas (Ax and Bx). You didn't need show this concept to your client, especially if you already know the existence of the other logo.

    You client knows there ir another logo using the same idea? Maybe he thinks this is a clever and unique concept for his bussines.

    @Samuel vgm I understand your point of view and yes, the client knows, but as they're not design pro's they saw the similarity but didn't think it was "the same". I also didn't think it was important enough to strongly discourage them not to choose it.
    I showed them the pencil sketches and they chose the three concepts they wanted to explore in the next stage of the design proccess.
    It's hard to be 'unique' in a global world and this is for a local app for Spain. I got to this idea on my own. It doesn't deserves much merit as it is for an app to locate the bars that play the music you like in your city (music = notes + city -> logo).
    Should my client discard it simply because another person got a similar idea before 3.500km away? Would you bet all the logos you designed are unique in the whole world?

    Well, the client is always right :)

    If he knows the existence of the other logo, and you warned him there is very similar to another, well, is his decision (right or not) about his business.

    I can't tell you if all my logos are 'unique' because I can't know if somewhere someone uses the same concept, but, I'm sure that all that I've done, while I was doing it, I did not see anything like it (it doesn't mean that there is noone using the same idea).

    Seeing your sketches, I think that your concept was more different than this one. I liked many of them (if you check, you can see that I Liked it the other day :))

    Seriously, I don't think that you copied to anyone, as you say, is a relation of concepts: music+city+notes. Bingo! ^^

    I hope not bother you my opinion, I just wanted to share my opinion with you. :)

    A mi personalmente me gusta mucho más el C2, define más fácilmente el significado de la app (ciudad + música + DOONDE) el A3 para mí indica DOONDE + música solamente. Y la tipo del C2 mejor que la del 1, más curva, más movimiento... más flow! ;)

    @Jose Gonzalez Flow!! :D
    @Samuel vgm listening to an opinion different than my own is:
    A) not easy
    B) absolutely necessary :)
