MonkeySpace, formerly known as Monospace, is the official cross platform and open-source .NET conference organized by MonkeySquare. Want to learn more about developing for the iPhone, Android, Mac, and *nix platforms using .NET technologies? How about developing games or learning more about open-source projects using .NET technologies? MonkeySpace has provided an annual venue to collaborate, share, and socialize around these topics and more.
The client had requested resemblance to the original logo whose logo was designed by Sean Ferrell aka Brandclay. They did not intend to create a brand. They wanted to portray a monkey on a podium. As this was a conference, the idea was suitable. I tried to keep the logo similar to that of the organization yet have its own personality.
