No-Smoking Logo

I was bored so i did a little photoshop tutorial for a No-Smoking sign.

It would also work for a No-Spam icon.


i just did the No-Spam Version.

    i just realised that the natural shading on the cigarette has the light coming from the wrong direction. i tried fixing it but i actually liked this version better. it makes the cigarette stand out more from the surroundings because of the higher edge contrast.

    This is so Kool! I really appreciate the included tutorials. What I like most about it is how you do make it look 3 dimensional. The warping effect can do some wonderful things but yes there are limitation as to its use and perhaps your intentions weren't based upon an entirely realistic representation. After all the circle and logo aren't 3 dimensional at all.

    Seen on your photo stream. (?)

    Hi, I'm an admin for a group called morrobay-smoking, and I'd like to have this added to the group as the very first image! I have taken the liberty to use this image as the pool's logo. I was able to give Creative Commons attribution at the group's description page, as follows: (hope this is all okay) -
    About morrobay-smoking

    Morro Bay Smoking - a Flickr Pool ( . Smoking is seen by many as a wonderful social interaction mechanism, a treat, a stress relief, one of life's sensual and tactile and even somatosensory pleasures. Others see smoking as the free-market system's greatest evil and infliction on the health and well-being of billions of mankind, an addiction, dangerous, and lethal, to not only the smoker, but to all of those around them. Some see smoking parents as outright child abusers. Regardless of your point-of-view, you are invited to contribute to this little bit of photojournalism - Smoking around Morro Bay, CA is the subject of this pool. The ideal submission will be geo-tagged and placed on your Flickr map, and Creative Commons licensed for unlimited use with attribution. Photos may be of people smoking or being effected by smoke and smokers, cigarette butts, trash, cigars, wrinkled faces, stained hands, anytime that has something to convey about smoking and related to the local Morro Bay and surrounding areas. You are encouraged to add a meaningful description and tags to your images. Mike Baird mike [at} mikebaird d o t com

    This image seems to be in high demand. I did a google search for "No Smoking Logo" and it was three of the first 4 entries.

    I'll be using this for the University of North Texas banner as I remind students, faculty and staff that we're going smoke free as of January 1, 2013. With attribution, of course. Be happy!
