This concept is better. Cool move with opposite drops.

This is killer Mike, I like how the sun rays are flipped to make rain drops...great touch.

The other said weathersphere more to me than this, but both are wonderful.

this version looks clean and fresh, I love the way you treat the beam, it is brilliant man! On the top just the opposite of the drop. GREAT!

Ok question. Clients concern was a 32/32 size holding up. I think it is definitely recognizable. What do you all think? Client thought about eliminated the rays. I'm against that. See the variation.

the rays are what make this thing special. i would try to steer your client back on track.

Agree with Colin and you Mike. I think it needs the rays. holds fine, in fact it says sun instantly and with the colors showing warm/cool and Dry(warm red) and wet (blue)it makes more sense. So you get all the elements with this. Without the rays and drops it really loses something over all I think.
Hope you can talk them back.

I agree with the guys above ^^ The mark is still distinguishable at a minimum size. And for me, the \"ray drops\" give it the memorability factor. Good Luck with your negotiations!

Thanks for your input guys. It gets tougher and tougher with all these minimal apps out there.

^ Yup I 3rd it. The rays add the fundamental context to the mark, without them you loose the sun reference. Might be clearer to have an alternate without gradients for the smaller applications though :)

Huge loss for them if they decide not to go with it.

Another vote to keep the rays. If you are concerned about the small size I think the rays/drops could go a bit bigger or wider/shorter. Like I said elsewhere, this is an awesome concept!

I think it holds up great at 32x32.

Although I can see why your client would be worried about the loss of detail on the thunder and clouds in the 32. Neither concept would work without the other. Tough call bud.

Thanks again. Nice to hear from the pros. I don't find it an issue myself.

Nice concept, you should definitely keep the rays. It is a simple mark which manages to communicate a lot. Spot on!

Even the Unilever logo works at very small sizes. I see no problems with this 32px version as well.

i think your concept is stronger but i see why they chose the other one also. its a bit more... how you say radical .. radival may not be the right work, but its more abstract and less literal? they are both good.

^ that's a good way of putting it. I agree. I just try to design in laymans terms mostly if that makes sense. I try to think of the audience foremost.

Just think of the average person looking for weather reports. I just don't feel the average person using this app can relate to the center of the earth. Maybe I'm not giving enough credit to the human.
