Even though i never got the whole Rhino reference thing it looks like a smooth logo with a clear message ;-)


I like the overall theme, but I think I would run the road sign through The GIMP or Photoshop to get rid of "travel at your own risk" and remove the background. In fact, to make it super clean, you might want to use the Roadgeek 2005 fonts and create a new road sign from scratch.


Pretty Rhino,

but I think without ears it would be much better)

I like it. Does it mean that you're going to pick up with HR again? If I may suggest, I'd love to see a screencast (or a series) on AOP using Castle.

Liked the logo and the slogan so much!

Jan Limpens

In general quite ok.

o) I'd avoid stretching fonts or artwork, looks amateurish.

o) The rhino drawing needs to be cleaned up vectorwise, especially at the ear tips; I think it looks a bit hostile. Do you want that?; Eyes should lay a bit lower if I am not mistaken.

o) Road shield pointing towards the center was nicer.


I like the over all design for a splash/ad but for a logo, I think it is a bit too much. One of the rules-of-thumb for a logo is it has t be able to be drawn quickly, by hand, on a napkin. I would say the rhino is a good logo, and the rest is a great design around that logo. Though I agree that the rhino looks a bit hostile.
