You cannot do that. The doctor, he told mommy it was perfectly fine for me to express my creativity, as long as she didn't bring me back.


Wheeeee!

I like the top one too.

Just trying to get the shape of the J 'stem' and the 'swoosh' transition a little better looking.....

You guys are all so awesome! Thanks for the contributions Jim - great stuff! Too busy to comment now, carry on! I've got to build up my stock of MJE-K47H capsule heads for "designer spiffs" ; )

I like Jim's stuff a lot, I like the whirling hammers too, hehheh, like the blue one too, but maybe in "Caslon outlined" in the initials I don't know, I've been way outclassed, that's what I do know. Jim is gooood.

The tilted "J" doesn't work for me; it blows the symmetry.

The one above the green one works if you clean up the circles and snazz up the typeface.

Hey, Spinners (wheels) for a mic!

I like this one a lot:



It's something of it's own with the expected Neumann/TF-ish logo behind it.

Hey Sino, can't ya do something like that spinning hammer but make it a guitar with the name Madguitrst on it? heh

Well, its 9:18 AM in Taiwan and Sinocelt should be hard at work on another sketch. I'd like to see if some common ground can developed between Sinocelt, DRP, Memphis and Jimcroisdale - good eyes all.

This is a brand identity I'm going to come out of the gate with...and live with for a long time... so I really appreciate the group collaboration and generosity.

i thought up some new logos while i was sitting at my computer last night, but just got back from a visit with my doctor to post them.

three are for 'michael joly microphones' and one is for 'michael joly icecream'

now that i have posted these designs, i realize none of them are quiet catchy enough for a logo.

best of luck to the designer on coming up with a logo...........

Oh, Tapehiss! I forgot to include you in the list, my apologies. I know there are others too. Everybody who has significant effort in this game is going to get a serious discount on mics from the new line if they want - including you of course. If I've forgotten anybody please remind me!

I should have kept my mouth shut about free mics.

I think that is the first 3-D treatment of a cube. Nice approach.

Just leave your name. Saying "microphones" is redundant and ruins the flow of the logo. I think it would be ideal.

Hm. I didn't even think of that. Maybe because I was too focused on aligning the "MIC" of "MICHAEL" and the "MIC" of "MICROPHONES" to consider removing the latter. Anyway, now that you've suggested it, it's obviously worth trying:



Which makes me want to also try:

The wood panel is, like the chocolate bar that followed, just a potential graphical application of the logo itself.

Among your logos, this one's my favorite:

I like this one too!

Ok, I did a very rough photoshop rendering (photoshop is hard) of the sketch I posted earlier. Anywho, it builds off of many designs already posted. I will play more with the fonts and sizing too.

I'll whip up something fast, but after that, let it be clear that you're the one who's going to "talk about it" with chris319.

Oh yes, almost perfect. The top one. I still don't think you need the word "microphones"
Here is what I think might do it.:

First, scale it slightly "fatter" more to the vertical, it is too elongated now without the other word, and:

Second, subtly make the microphone icon look more like a mic. (But don't disturb the great balance you have on that logo, it really is very nice, elegant, classy. A little more firmness/concretion to the mic icon serves the purpose of replacing the word "microphone" yet firmly establishes a "mic" as a mental image. Remember you have about 2 seconds to burn it into a musicians already fizzled brain (-:

(Sorry about sounding like a know-it-all), It's just that I did some of that work a time ago)

So have I (my CV is on my website) and the problem is: I'm starting to remember it -- i.e. the fun is fading.

Don't get me wrong: your suggestions are good ones, very much worth trying out, but there's no end in sight. I think the best thing to do would be (for Michael) to start a new thread, a dedicated thread, to gather not just more opinions but also more propositions and fresh ideas. How many Gearslutz know what's really taking place now in this "Chinese Trip" thread, which I guiltily admit I enthusiastically helped derail?



I also think that Michael should not offer a heavy discount to everyone who submits a logo, not unlike he wants to have to sift through a lot of half-backed I-just-want-the-discount "propositions."

Well, that bottom logo rocks! I'd give you an Addy if I could.

I'm not looking for a discount anyway, just couldn't help admiring that logo!
I worked a bit with Alan Hyatt years ago testing his mics, and trying to talk him out of "Studio Projects" and into "SP" because the mics were so great for the money. (-:
