Yeah Deiv, I just have a lot of ideas now, but they all are without purpose. Strange thing that there is absolutely no orders at autumn and winter. This is the reason why I'm uploading my logos made just for fun now. :)

Nice!, one of the best digs I've seen. Have you tried squaring off the flared d and g? I think it's not needed here.

Thank you for advice Mike, I'm glad you like it :)%0D*%0D*Updated.

Something needs tweaking IMO, but concept is great Arnas. Maybe it doesn't look optically pleasing because of the drastic varying weight in the type...not sure if there's a proper solution to that though without impeding the clarity of the concept.

wonderful concept, but do agree with Joe that it needs some tweaking. Waiting to see the revised version.

sweet idea there, matto! nice.

Matto Dec. 09 '10

A big thanks to all of you!%0D*%0D*Joe, I know what do you mean, but I still haven't find the solution which can fix that. If I make the handle/counter in the g bigger it looks much better. But then we don't have the shovel...

Matto, I agree with some of the comments regarding the width of the d compared to the g. maybe try making the d have more weight? I think since it's the first letter it can work.

Matto, I agree with some of the comments regarding the width of the d compared to the g. maybe try making the d have more weight? I think since it's the first letter it can work. It would be like a lowercase capital d if that makes sense.

In other words, maybe make the lobe of the d wider,leaving the stem of d the same width but might have to make it taller.

That's cool! I had a thought, feel free to ignore it, but it would be cool if the d and g were the same shape so that it was kind of a pseudo ambigram.

Matto Dec. 09 '10

Mike, I hope I understood you correctly, so here is some updates I've made. Does it look better?%0D*%0D*Sean, thank you for the suggestion, but the g looks like q then. I already tried it :)

ethereal Dec. 09 '10

Hey, Arnas. No, no, I was thinking you could use the g as the character (I should have said that). I actually tried this on my computer earlier. Take the g and rotate it 180 and then flip it to form the d. Now, if the d looks too much like a lower case %22a%22 you could then modify the top stroke some (and then mirroring that in the g). Make sense? Looked kind of cool.

Reply
Matto Dec. 10 '10

Yup, I've got it now Sean, but I'm still not sure. I just tried to make that d like g, but even I modify it in any case looks misleading. I mean similarity with a. Just don't like to include too much here. But thank you again Sean, I appreciate it :)
