for the weekly challenge. well, obviously. decided to go 8 colors again.. and 427 pixel wide, somehow got comfortable with this width recently ;D

accidentaly found out that it looks quite nice rotated by 90 degrees.. so, if you're planning a game or some kind of demoscene release titled "yotipp" and are in need for an upright logo, contact me ;D

anticipating ppl bitching about the legibility of the "i":

[weisenheimer mode on]
it's been scientifically proven, that vowels are not necessary for the human brain in identifying a word.. so, semitic alphabets for example, most notably the arabic and hebrew (yes, they've got things in common!) omit vowels.. instead of vowels, there are several 'dots' to underline the pronunciation / disambiguate things.
[weisenheimer mode off]

.. and there are clearly enough dots around that letter indicating that it is an "i". lawyered ;D

wip: sketch + working stages

Crap, double post

Dino502Run (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 4/7/2010 20:50

Amazing, from the background to the details

pfft, legibility is overrated anyway

thumbs up for this one

iLKke (Level 9 Nidan) @ 9/18/2009 07:34

8 x FAV! :D

dakael (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 9/4/2009 04:21

Great design, as usual. Tomic rocks again! :)

Justinth (Level 1 Rookie) @ 9/3/2009 13:06

 That's 8 colors?


I can't do that with 200 colors.

fano (Level 1 Rookie) @ 9/3/2009 05:21

Impressive, especially w/ only 8 colors !

DawnBringer (Level 10 Maniac) @ 9/2/2009 16:36

I can never read these things! :) But great work with just 8 colors.

Skurwy87 (Level 6 Made) @ 9/2/2009 12:20

well with things like this grafitti-inspired logo legibility isnt a very significant factor; urban artists arent always typographers. its even better if its twisted in one way or another since this way its something of a riddle for me to solve; "how much can you do with simple letters?", "can you turn a simple phrase into some sort of wicked design?" yeah, you and vierbit definitely rock in this challenge! kudos!


cassiechihuahua (Level 1 Gangster) @ 9/1/2009 18:03

Looks amazing. As soon as I saw the preview I knew it was you. Something about the colors you use.

ui_ (Level 4 Deputy) @ 8/31/2009 09:17

same as vierbit, execelent style (actually i can recongnize your style). Amazing colors and design... but... it's really hard to read :(..... (something than i always critique from the graffers :() (a test to check if ppl can read it or not... send the votation link to somebody like your mom/dad/gf/bf etc, if they can recognize what it say, then is a logotype :D)
well so im now oficially an ass? XD

SHANN0N (Level 4 Deputy) @ 8/30/2009 18:40

 It looks great to me! I love the colors and the shadings excellent. I liked it much better with less stripes though- the few you had in the middle before looked good and balanced out the larger 't' and 'c' but all of the stripes now make it look a bit cluttered. It has my vote though!

RollerKingdom (Level 7 Mass Murderer) @ 8/30/2009 18:35

Winner. This is awesome.. well id say THIS IS PRO!

.Anubis. (Level 3 Hatchet Man) @ 8/30/2009 17:29

 The only letter I find hard to read is the "M" but otherwise the vowels are pretty readable, good job and you have my vote.

Manjaman (Level 7 Mass Murderer) @ 8/30/2009 14:51

This is ace O.<

susuwataris (Level 6 Yonkyu) @ 8/30/2009 14:40

winner :)

Dex (Level 11 CEO) @ 8/30/2009 13:38

I can easily see tomic, I must be a cool kid ;D


onek (Level 6 Hitman) @ 8/30/2009 12:44

niiiiceee!... lovely colors, rly like the "i" ^^ 

jamesmorrow07 (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 8/30/2009 11:01

8 colors? Awesome!

mitch968 (Level 1 Rookie) @ 8/30/2009 10:38

it looks like an abstract something

(not the word something)

Satsume (Level 10 Capo) @ 8/30/2009 10:36

 great font =3

Levi (Level 1 Thug) @ 8/30/2009 10:21

I would never have known it was tomic before looking at your name, but that is usually the case with this stuff.  The trick is making something that, after you DO know it says tomic, you'll go "oooohhhhh, ok, I see it!"  This is pretty awesome dude.

Ergg (Level 6 Yonkyu) @ 8/30/2009 10:07

Great but a bit hard for reading.

Christoballs (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 8/30/2009 09:28

It's cool but it took me time to read it (I can read "Tokyo' and before that ???), I like the work in and out of the letters, though not their form.

Hapiel (Level 11 Admiral) @ 8/30/2009 09:13

It is really really beautiful, I love it!

skamocore (Level 11 CEO) @ 8/30/2009 09:10

This is rubbish (dude, get yourself an "i"). Yotipp Is more legible than Tomic :3

Actually, I believe Arabic and Hebrew are pretty similar; I know they share quite a few words.

btw, nice colours, my favourite part is the T.
