Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No it’s something else!

Posted by Mark

Symphony Mall have placed their logo on top of their building but I have no idea what it is. Anyone have a clue? Kinda looks like a falcon maybe? The whole thing looks kinda squished up there, not enough room for it. It’s like I mentioned last time, building signs always seem like a sloppy last minute addition here in Kuwait.

Thanks Issa!

Update: Turns out it’s Doctor Zoidbergs claw!

    Looks like a fish on fire :)

    Symphony is owned by Al-Tijaria .. same people as the previous sign. I guess they have a thing for large ugly signs on top of their buildings.

    It looks like a predator bird holding a fish in its claws.

    the sad thing is it seems that companies/investors spend millions of KD designing, planning and constructing the buildings but then when it comes to signs or basically just the overall detail and finishing, they want to be as “cost efficient” as possible. why….if your gonna do it…do it right…right?

  12. MSM says:

    That building looks fugly with or without the sign.

  17. Realist says:

    Really shows how the company feels about their real estate investment.

    BTW its the same owner as the other building you posted about.

    I think it’s a quill on its stand, a pen that is made from a bird’s feather.

    I can confirm JB’s reply, it is a female profile in rose petals. The branding looks refined and classy in print, but the execution here does not reflect it at all. I would have only used the logotype on the building and restricted the logo on print and small size displays only.

    Thinking about what I just said, I now think the designers must have specified no use of the logo on the building, but client probably insisted on it.

  20. Mark says:

    do you have a better picture of the logo?

  21. katukoa says:

    I do but I can’t share it. But now that its up there its probably going to surface in papers soon.

  22. Mohammed says:

    im guessing its an upside down red rooster biting a red chili pepper. pretty practical.

  30. nasser says:

  31. q8travelbud says:

    I was walking the other day on the sc walk and stood for a while trying to figure it out … !!

  32. Confused mama says:

    hey can someone tell me where in the world is this mall? and from what iv’e read in the past blogs about it (2006) is it really the way? Most expensive mall, assistants carrying ur bags and foot massage in the bathroom?
    I live in salmiya but sadly havent come across this. Pls pls gimme some direction, landmark, some indication that I dont live in isolation !!

    oh ya and when I get there i’ll surely check out the logo :)

  33. Sara says:

    I think its super man board skating and his red cape is flying. Thats how I see it

  34. louka says:

    @Confused mama: you cant miss it, once you get to the scientific centre (the actual building) just give your back to the sea, and you’ll see it, its big enough to spot

  35. shahou88 says:
