Is it just me or do others see a slight elephant / rhino in the negative space too?

Oct 1, 2010 at 11:56 pm

I saw a rhino before I saw the people… but I do not see the elephant that you talk of! Don’t think it is meant to be a rhino though!

Really impressive. The map of Africa do looks a little bit like a rhino, but was that on purpose? Some rhino species are native to Africa. But that is unrelated to AIDS though.

I LOVE this. This is the first logo of the day that made me nod in appreciation, and prompt me to comment. Great Job!

Oct 2, 2010 at 3:08 am

wow that is genius.

Anything with a pointy edge could look like a rhino, but I don’t think that was intended. Apart from that, the logo is absolutely great.

flawless. and this is coming from an African. lol. JK.

Claver and soft idea, but still i can see a horse head in the negative space and color scheme enforces that idea in fact

Classic use of negative space. Nice colors used too. I saw the Adult-Child immediately. Only after I read the above comments did I notice the Rhino & the Horse. Maybe that was intended ’cause Rhinos live in Africa too.
Amazing work!

I was just catching up with the logos of the day and came across this brilliant specimen. Awesome use of negative space, clever, and effectively communicates the message. Beautiful job…love it!

Oct 8, 2010 at 8:26 am

WOW! This is too nice!

Oct 13, 2010 at 4:52 am

Really effective logo, well executed.

@Jacob Cass, I don’t think the rhino was intentional but it’s a nice touch even if it is.

Averused idea, i like it but maybe is not well executed.

Re: Seeing a rhino, Somalia and the surrounding area is nicknamed ‘the horn’, so I think the comparison has been around for a long time.

The logo is fantastic, great use of the negative space making the faces so recognisable but without losing the shape of Africa too much.
