Thanks guys!!%0D*%0D*What flavor would you give it Alex? :)

They are just too close and make the type virtually impossible to read when the logo is scaled down. Anything with a bit more contrast would work better. Black on white, perhaps ? :)

Thanks Gareth, Joe %26 AGM (anonymous gallery moderator). :)**I don't get the chance to do a lot of wordmarks or custom type in general, so I always enjoy being shoved off my comfort plateau...we never stop learning. :)

Jeez took me a long time to figure out what the sinking G and the nail mean. I just got it while typing this. Very nice, Hayes!

Thanks everybody :D**@ Julian: That's the effect I wanted :) wait for it, wait for it, ka-bow.**@ Radhacelis: An extra crossbar you mean? Like the crease you get in a typical shovel? If so, interesting thought :)**@ levelb%3B Funny stuff :) Glad people like what I'm shoveling :P

Thank you Craig %26 Sean, I'm still spun out about this being in logolounge 6, it still (to me) seems to be the opposite to what they go for...

Great! Did you try an option where the %22G%22 is connected rather than broken up? I think that would help its readability.

Reply
Hayes Image Jul. 01 '10

Thanks guys! I did try both options, but they just seemed a bit 'off'...having the complete G letterform made it look a little tacked on.**Having the shovel 'dug into the ground' made it seem (for lack of a better word) more purposeful, like work in the garden has just begun. Thanks again :)

Thanks Colin. It's to be able to use just type in some occaisions, typefacee characteristics can tell such a story in themselves.
