Cool icon and fresh coulour scheme. Nothing personal and sorry to say that but I do not like Diavlo...

subarroca said on Aug. 28 '10

we chose diavlo because it's endings look a bit like leaves. Thanks though! :)

Agree with thomas, icons looks cool but I don't really like that font.

thomas said on Aug. 29 '10

I understand what you say about the leaf feeling of Diavlo. Problem is it's overused and too much distinctive... Have you try to tweak it and appropriate it to make it yours? Some details are really awful to me (middle bar of the /w, bottom left part of /t and /y's leg). If you like fonts with this style, I hardly recommend you Omnes by Joshua Darden. It has this nice fresh and organic feeling. You may have look at some soft sans with curve to corner (http://www.fontshop.com/fontlist/genres/soft_sans_curve_to_corner/).
Also, don't know why you decided to bottom aligned icon and type... Keep on the good work!

Thanks!
I've checked out Omnes but still lacks a bit of leafy look. But I do really like the link you shared, I'll check them out.
About the alignment, it's on the bottom because green liquid follows the same height as letters, do you think it would be better to center it? and what about the orb letter ratio?
Thanks for your comments!

You're right about Omnes but you could easily use it as base and tweak the way you like Diavlo. Another interesting font for this kind of job would be Yanone Kaffeesatz (http://www.dafont.com/yanone-kaffeesatz). I think it has also this positive and cool feeling and, very important too... it's free :)
I think there's also something off about the layout, something about proportions. First, logo is a way too big for this format (lack of breathing space). Second, centering orb is worth a shot (and what about adding a smooth shadow to make the orb floating?). Third, may be also adding some little space between orb and type.
Looking forward for updates!
