    Thanks for clarifying.

    I guess for me I've done logotypes before so a part of me wanted to do something different for myself but I realize I was too focused on one idea and not letting it...

    What sorts of things can be associated with eye care? Actual things, like eye charts and tears? More abstract things, like clarity and focus? Or maybe even concepts like beauty and style? There are lots...

    I have noticed other logos used an eye but I thought the way I used the P and S made it stand out among it's competition. I chose avant garde because I thought it wouldn't look dated. I'm curious why...

    Using Avant Garde type might have been a route to looking upscale back in the 1970s, but today it mostly looks dated.

    Making an eye out of the P & S is a nice idea, but until I read your...

    Just wanted to make people aware of the article I wrote as a tribute to one of my favorite designers: An introduction - and farewell tip of the hat - to Rick Tharp

    wow, what a nice tribute, Jeff. I would have liked to meet Mr. Tharp. Sounds like he was a great guy, both extremely talented and a lot of fun. What a shame to lose him before his time.

      I consider it a true privilege to be one of the many that met Rick at "The Design Conference That Just Happens To Be In Park City", in 1999, as a budding Design Student. He was a genuine smart ass (meant in a good way.) =) What a great designer, he will be sorely missed, I am truely in shock, as I sit here typing this. =\

      Great Tribute Jeff.

        Truly a great tribute, Jeff. I, too, am saddened by the loss of Mr. Tharp. He was one of my design heroes and will be greatly missed.

          Thanks morea, DesignIt and Lonepine. It was an incredibly difficult piece for me to write - and I had only met him once.

            Met Rick at Miami during the summer between freshman and sophomore years. Special person, and extremely intelligent. Even then his imagination was obvious.

            I cannot imagine what caused him so much grief as to end his life this way, but wanted to thank him for all the laughs in accounting and economics (he wanted these done).

            Assume he's looking down on us and making some amusing comments.

            Miami was a special place in the early 70's, and Rick was one of the reasons we all made our marks on the world.

              Hi Parsonl5 and welcome to GDF.

              We ask all new members to read the threads posted HERE and HERE. They will give you all the info you need on how the forum runs, the rules and regulations, frequently discussed topics as well as clearing up any baffling inside jokes.

              This thread is 7 years old so don't be surprised if there isn't much further discussion. Feel free to poke around the rest of our forum though.
              It is more fun to talk with someone who doesn't use long, difficult words but rather short, easy words like "What about lunch?" Winnie the Pooh
