Nice one :)

Quite relevant too.

very original style – me like !

Very cool concept

isn’t it funny that the 3 comments are very positive and yet the rating on this is pretty poor?

I like it, I saw the MD without reading the title, which is an acheivement most of the time.

spoons and fork makes me wanna eat my porc!

THis is a great design and concept.

Just an absolutely fabulous design. I get inspirational chills down my spine just from looking at it.

I’m missing what everyone else is seeing. I think this is horrible.

Feb 24, 2009 at 6:09 am

I am with QF – I don’t see what everyone else is… I find it cliche and boring

Feb 24, 2009 at 6:16 am

I don’t get it either — I’m not a fan.

On the website, I’m not sure anyone would identify it as the *logo* — it just looks like a stock photo stuck in the top left corner.

Interesting concept, but I don’t agree with this style of 3D in logo design. I think this design works only if the images are accompanied by the chef’s name.

Feb 24, 2009 at 9:53 am

I’m a newbie, and I didn’t really see anything great about this logo.

Feb 24, 2009 at 6:06 pm

I do like going new ways in case of logo design. But for me tis one just doesnt look good… the different tones of black look strange to me…

Feb 24, 2009 at 6:45 pm

Good idea…bad execution.
It looks very out of place.

Feb 24, 2009 at 10:16 pm

the logo it self may be little boring, but whole CI is awesome

I’d be a liar if I said that the fork and spoon abruptly cut off at the top didn’t bother me. :(

It does not work because they are suddenly cut off instead of showing the whole object, I rather see a whole object instead of cut off. It is not a logo also would not even work if you had to print it in a single color version.

very amateur work. sometimes it doesnt work to try to find associaition between name and material

Feb 25, 2009 at 9:34 pm

It’s a nice concept but I don’t think any form of gradient belongs in most logos. I also don’t like how they’re just cut off like Chung Dha said.

Gotta say that the attempt to make this 3-dimensional really doesn’t work for me. This may look ok now, but when trying to reproduce this at smaller sizes and in black and white, it’s not going to come across well.

And it just looks unnatural in a bad way.

Mar 6, 2009 at 12:18 am

I like it, but have to agree it looks like stock photo. And does it work in low res. print? Or on a business card? Not so sure it works as a logo! Maybe just as an additional image for the restaurant?
