Description: WIP. For a local toy/gift shop that specialises in only toys or gifts made of wood. Its a hell of a store! I'm doing this for the owner in exchange for a present for my son. Any suggestions on improving this is welcome. Cheers. BTW, the store was originally just called Arnold's Gift Shop but he later changed it to 'The Gift' because he has this huge Trojan horse (not for sale) inside and since the Greeks gave this horse to the Trojans as a 'Gift' he decided to change the name. There you go.

Wonderful design, love the nice touch with the random angles on the wheels, it just makes the illustration that much more realistic!

Oh, what a subtle connection... that trojan horse! Even, if that owner wouldn't have that large example in his store, it would have been a nice concept idea anyway! It is courageously! As for the execution... I have a few problems with the different perspectives... the horse is pure from side, the wheels show a little from right side, while the sign is seen from above. I think, it would be more compact, if this was unified in any way. However, nice work.

Excellent illustration. I'd like to see this logo made of real wood.

I love this. Such a great concept! My only suggestion is to work on the tagline. It doesn't read as fluent English to me. Maybe just %22wooden toys%22 or %22natural wood toys%22 or something like that. Great work!

I don't know.... It looks really good, but the meaning of the trojan horse made me suspect of the store...%0D*Before read the description I thought it was something to trick other people...

Thank you all for the valuable feedbacks! As you can see this is not usually my design style and being a bit rusty I value any input. I'm just glad that this client is an easy going guy so that any further tweaks I make to this he would still approve of.**All points noted. Will tweak it again and repost when time permits. Tell ya what guys, when it rains, it bloody pours! And loving it. Cheers.
