Look at the logo he has next to the LW 8 annoucement. Pretty kewl, huh? I know its not a new Logo, but I was never a fan of the old. The swirl kinda looked like stylized poop. :D What he has on his page looks pretty kewl...

Speaking of poop, is the character in the upper right reading the newspaper while on the toilet? I don't know. you decide....

Hmmm? You mean this one:

I don't like it. I like the Lightwave "swirly" logo better, as it's cheekier. This "rigid" looking circular logo could just as easily belong to an insurance company.

Why are you criticising the siggraph logo?

What you call rigid, I call professional. Its elegant. I've always found the LW logo appeared "angry" or far to aggressive. It also seems amateurish. The first copper looking one for 5.6 looked like a turd.

Watching tech TV now, even their logo is more inviting. Just MHO....

While we're talking about company logos, I'd really like to get stuck into a competitor's logo, but I can't mention that competitor as it's against forum rules.

Anyway... this company has an icon (that sits in The Dock on Mac OS X) that looks very much like the "toothpaste man" in a toothpaste commercial showing in Asia.

I'll say no more.

Hardly, because one can debate the orgins of the design. Its clear that the colgate character design is because its supposed to look like toothpaste. Meanwhile the iChat Logo has a separate head and relates to instant messaging. Nowhere near the market for toothpaste. also, I doubt it would hold up in any court as you can't copywrite the representing of the human form as an icon while you can the individual icon.
