    The way this is worded makes you sound sore that this guy is getting attention for his work and you are not. How much time did you spend searching Google to try and knock this kid down a peg?

    Constructive criticism is always more helpful. Also, I recommend using your real name on DN, people are less suspicious of your motives if you can stand behind your words.

      geezus. Just dropped the flag into google image search, two seconds, to see what kind of brands/fields applied a similar geometric pattern. Some sort of eco ethical school uniform company, and a photographer. That was the comment - that you're gonna get a number of different meanings/interpretations conveyed from a core shape logo. I'm not knocking the kid down, it's not a Show DN. sor-ry.

      Mike, that's an extremely hostile reaction to what was hardly an offensive comment.

      You miss the little "be nice" slogan they've got plastered all over here?

        To me, it read like a subtle accusation of stealing, something I take very seriously and I hate to see a talented young designer become fearful of silly accusations like that (especially when their work is so promising). Fear is a designer's worst enemy. From someone who is not posting with their real name, it came off as very suspicious to me.

        That said, I've edited my comment to remove the snarky tone, which I agree is not necessary to get my point across.
