Small I Am

Though small I am, yet, when entire,I’ve force to set the world on fire.Take off a letter and it’s clearMy paunch will hold a herd of deer:Dismiss another, and you will findI once contained all humankind.

    I worked hard on this one. This is the answer I came up with:

    Aeden – Gaelic word for fire
    A den – holds a herd of deer
    Eden – once contained all humankind

    Spark is a better answer. But thought I’d submit this anyway after working so hard on it.

    lukes answer seems most correct to me. Noah’s ark according to most held animals and Noah’s family, no human kind on there, especially not all of it.

    jables – no, during the flood all of human kind got wiped out apart from noah’s family on the ark (if you believe in fairy stories anyway!)

    Ignoring what better said, Luke answer would still be considered right if it wasn’t for the fact that two letters are suppose to be missing in the third word. Plus, it seems like an English riddle, so it shouldn’t contain a Gaelic answer. (That’s my thought anyways.)

    The ability to think like that is always a joy to behold

    hey Morgan – my position with regards to brand development is that you should avoid overloading a logo’s elements with descriptive literals.While the concepts for Payday are good – and my favorite is #3 – the stylization reminds that of PayPal. With regards to PetCoupons, lower casing makes things friendly looking but #1 uses very thin fonts. #3 looks like the dog is holding a sausage in its teeth. I’d send these back to the designer for new versions.
