Years later when we were thinking of changing the name and the logo, we ultimately decided that to change midstream could be the death of a brand, which we'd see before.
So we are Spyderco and we have a cute logo.

This is pretty much what I thought. ^Wartstein wrote: ↑Thu Apr 02, 2020 1:24 amWelcome to the forum!
This is honestly great work, if I would know nothing about Spyderco and stumble over your adds and designs, I´d absolutely gravitate to the knives. It is kind of hard for me to explain in English (not my mother tongue obviously) what it is that I exactly find really attracting about your ideas... somehow "strong and self confident" but not TOO aggressive and not too screaming "we´re the best"... if you know what I mean.
I used to live in a Lyme disease area myself and I agree, the lovable bug looks more tick-like than spider-like. I know people who suffer the effects of Lyme disease, it's bad JuJu.bearfacedkiller wrote: ↑Thu Apr 02, 2020 4:50 amI am gonna be the odd man out. I haven’t really shared this but I don’t love Spyderco’s logo much. I live in the heart of Lyme disease country. I know more people who have had Lyme around here than who haven’t. If you spend time in the woods, and i spend a lot of time in the woods, you hate ticks. The Spyderco logo looks way more like a tick than it does a spider.
Maybe I am just being silly or maybe it is my annual 4 weeks of antibiotics to kick one of the many diseases ticks share with me but I have so far passed on all of the Spyderco branded clothing because of the tick logo. Had a round bug sticker on my car and had to explain why I had a tick on my truck to a few people.
I love my Spydies and carry and use piles of them. I just don’t love the logo. I would welcome the change.
Overall this all looks professional and I think you have a future in graphic design. I took one graphic design class in college as an elective and enjoyed it. Thanks for sharing.
