Add to Pad (In 61 Pad s )

Description: Going for a bit more of a Blue Note feel on the type. It needs to span from the old jazz records to academic classical. Hopefully getting close to the final version.

wow, you've been working on this one for a while :)*i certainly think you're heading in the right direction with the type, but it still feels a little too plain for me.

Very nice, great concept!

Yea, I wanted the mark to stand out, and keep the type from overpowering it. I also wanted a subtle reference to Blue Note records: http://www.gokudo.co.jp/Record/BlueNote4/index.htm

I first saw a sad face, then I saw the title and saw the musical note. Nice logo either way.

Took me a minute to see it, but once i did i was kind of blown away. :) Currently trying to brainstorm a logo for my initials JT that doesn't look like the mathematical symbol for pi. I think I want something neutral, even though I plan to use it on two separate websites (one would be for my professional/portfolio site as a web developer (not designer), the other for my food blog). Any ideas?

Thanks James! I usually spend lots of time sketching and brainstorming after I have a thorough brief (which can also be a long and deep process). For me it really helps to assemble a list of keywords that summarize the themes of the brand. Don't stop sketching until you have over a dozen pages of thumbnail sketches, and then refine the best 3 to 6 ideas. Doing this for yourself is much harder than for a client, good luck!
