Designed for Le Goupé. An old french sea rescue corps.

I think I would need a better explanation or see it in use to “get” this logo. As it is right now, I can’t say I’m a big fan.
I think it’s meant to look like one of those old-fashioned lifeguard rings turned into a G, except it doesn’t look like either (30 seconds on Google would show you how it should look). And the designer’s web site is trying to install a trojan onto my system.
I can notice a change in the “density” of the G… kind of like if it is a solid material on the left and a fabric or rope hanging on the right. Do that make sense? That makes the logo kind of cool to me and I think that allows a nice “eye navigation” through it, but nothing to talk about later on the day
@QF: Dude, I appreciate your honesty, your kinda attacking in the tone. And what’s with the trojan on my site? 30 seconds on Google would show you, that it’s Google Analytics – not a trojan.
Well, it’s not the best logo I’ve done and I really didn’t think it would get the logo of the day award. I’m really excited it got picked though. Thanks Jeff and Jacob!
I love it. I love the simplicity and the modern mark against the serif typeface. Personally, I don’t need the shape to “be” anything. It’s their mark. I get “rescue” from the red/white. Besides, it’s always hard to judge the meaning of a logo mark outside of any additional visual branding context.
With all due respect, why do I have to go searching on Google to find our your web site isn’t trying to install a virus on my system? Do you expect potential clients to do the same thing? It’s simple – AVG tells me there’s a problem with a web site, I don’t visit it. Plenty of sites use Google Analytics, yours is the first to cause an issue.
@Grant: Exactly. That was kinda the idea, so thanks for pointing that out.
@QF: I just think your sending out the wrong picture. I’m a designer, not a hacker/trojandude. I got AVG myself, my host is the top hoster in Denmark and this is the first time I hear something like that. But sure, I’m gonna check it out. Can you give me the exact warning message? And dude, no hard feelings.
No, no hard feelings at all. I don’t think you’re a hacker, I think perhaps you’ve done something funky with the code on your web site and it’s potentially alienating some visitors.
I’m getting two errors:
mabu.dk/ – Trojan Horse Downloader.Generic_C.AJH
mabu.dk/favicon.ico – Trojan Horse Downloader.Generic_C.AJH
@QF: Aight, I’ve contacted the supporter of my host. Hopefully they will figure out what’s causing this issue. I’m glad there isn’t any hard feelings. Have a very nice day dude.
Now, back on the logo issue… I have to second Grant with the red/white and its meaning and/or what it conveys. That was one of the first thing that I could extract from my perception of the logo. The color along with what I said on my previous post makes an overall good logo for me.
I think it’s not a perfect logo but it’s great for what it does.
I think it’s one of those “thats what the customer wanted” case and IMO if the customer is happy, that’s all you need.
