Does this logo already exist?

I put this together and immediately had some sort of ethereal recolection but I can't place the icon with a name of a company. Do you know if this icon already exists in a logo and if so what company it belongs to?mysteryLogo

Adam did you try a Google search? Also It might only be a registered name in one country.

All logos already exist in some form or another. ;o)

Daniel, how do you do a Google search for an icon? That would indeed be a killer feature: paste in a picture, and we'll do pattern matching to find images similar to it.

I don't think they have it yet, though.

Steve, you can't do pattern matching, but you can certainly search for images:

(Yeesh...there's some ugly stuff out there ;o)

Steve I was refering to the name which might lead to the icon.

Of course, I realize that. But what if the logo was for a real estate company, or a construction firm (since it does look like a house)? It gets much harder the more abstract the logo gets.

Darrel, you aren't really searching for the images, but rather the name of the image. I think there ought to be some rought pattern matching ability out there that would allow a next-generation Google to offer what I described.

And it's not just images. Imagine a search engine that would allow you to match "That song that goes, dun-dun-dun-dah..." Right now, you have to know the artist, or (part of) the title, or understand the lyrics enough to search for those.

Sorry, I'm drifting off topic :-)

Thanks you guys. For some reason Fidelity came to mind when I created it but have not been able to find anything similar.

Steve:

There actually was (is?) a service that did the song matching for you. You'd call in on your cell phone and hum a few bars and it'd find the song for you.

This, of course, was during the dot-com boom where ideas like this were actually thought to make money. ;o)

Adam,

I had a really strange thing happen a few minutes ago. I was flipping through my business card folder, and I came across a card I have from someone with the VEA group. Their logo looks like this:



Their website is www.veagroup.ca, and they do real estate investments.

Hope this helps,

-Mike

Just to distance myself from the shame of the swoop... I didn't design it- I just found it.

(Though, a meek part of me has to admit I'm currently designing a logo for a client who insisted on a swoop being integrated... *sigh*) :-)
