candy-cane-o logo by Raven30412 candy-cane-o logo by Raven30412
haha...
for tonight, I decided to became a TREND-WHORE.
so BEHOLD: shiny trendy happy flairy logo full of gradients is here!

Despite the stuff around, the typography is my original again, done from scratch, and I'm sort of proud of this one, I think it went out pretty nice.

btw., the product is an erotic pill for "better oral sex"...
the client DID chose this one (it was a contest on 99 designs), however, she used only the mouth part, threw away the typo and placed there some incredible shity lettering instead of it... Printed it in really disgusting fashion, too. I almost threw up when I saw her website and the pictures of the result. I try hard to never speak bad about clients, but this time, I'd rather starve to death then do work with such a result again.

And so: this was the first and also the last time I did something at 99 designs. That's right kids, if you don't want to end up as some shitty low-grade logodesigner wannabe, don't go there, don't do it, it's not worth it.

well... I guess it works, for some people... not for me though :) for some reason, most of clients have terrible taste there, and designers are mostly freaking amateurs. I just find out that since I have enough commissions from people who found me on dA and behance, I don't need to do 99designs stuff, and I'm pretty happy with that.

hehe, yeah some designs there are... heavy stuff :)
imho, all the participants (maybe except the guy with with that cool hand-drawn / vectorized candycane) were freakin amateurs... those 3 "best" logos... man, you can't even call those a logo...
but: they got a DICK on the top-rated one, and the second one has this really cool PS "jelly" effect... can't beat that I guess... :)

it is. but it's not very sexual on the other hand, which was the main goal, he kind of ignored that... but still, it is the best, it's unbeleveable he has only one star. the client is retard, nothing more to say.
