Two ligatures I love: the a-m and the L-period. Really well crafted!

Looks really great. And i agree with Chirp. Those are really great ligatures... Perhaps the %22r%22 is the only letter i would tweak a bit.

Very good. My 2c worth. The 's' feels a little tall compared to the other letters. And the 't' could move down a tad. I love the 'L-period' ligature so much, I wonder if it's worth joining the top loop to the dot on the 'C'? Just to help balance it all out. If it becomes too busy, maybe just extend halfway? I love the coffee-and-cream palette. Very sophisticated looking.

Small details I noticed: 1. Something I would try, and this is something I've found only works about half the time, is reducing the thickness of the capital letters so that the line-weights match throughout the mark. 2. Love the 'L', but it really overshadows the very plain 'C'. I'd give the 'C' some cream-love (sorry) so that it is equal to the L. 3. There are a few inconsistencies with how the letters are connecting. The C-e, e-a, and a-m don't touch, while the s-t and the c-o-m do touch. I think I prefer the execution on the a-m (touching on one side but not on the other) because it seems to add a little dimension, as if the link between the letters is behind the other stroke. I hope that last sentence made sense haha. Anyway, this small break sort of serves as a highlight, also, which adds to the cream feeling. Overall, I think this is well on it's way to being an outstanding mark!

So recognizable. Nice work.**IMO, the C could use a little more love, since the L has been shown so much. And the top loop in the L feels like it could be connected to the great %22line connection%22 started with the A and M. I hope that makes sense. And just bump the size of %22.com%22 up about 8-10%25?

Oh wow, serves me right to be offline for this long! Thanks for all the comments, it is still a work in process so they are super helpful. I did originally have more going on with the C but it started getting a little reminiscent of Coca-Cola, so I cut back on those flourishes. But I can see what you mean. I will definitely be taking all your comments to heart. Thanks so much!

creamlist it is, only thing I can think is to bring the arch on the bottom of the C down a little further, it almost seems like it gets squared off there. I like it either way, doesn't have to be perfect to make it a good design..

C is still kinda lacking. I'd still try reducing the thickness of it, as well as the L. I think it needs to have a looser, more flowing feel. I'm thinking the gaps between where the letters connect wasn't the best solution (sorry for suggesting it!) They probably just need connecting. The L is lookin nice and overall i think you're almost there! Great work!

While i think this works fine, I'd like to see other options. I don't know whether the repeating top twist on top of the C and L is the right solution, as the C still feels inferior to the L. The L is just so outrageous in its 'swoop'. When drawing a C, the same 'swoop' feeling is in that big left arch. I really think this has to be bigger. The connection between the C and the e may have to be sacrificed, but honestly, i think it may be holding it back anyway because it takes away the definite 'end' to the C that the L has. Or maybe the tail of the e comes below to finish in a cute little swoosh instead of going upwards? Either way i think the left side of that C has to get bigger and 'swoopier' (but watch that line weight! it's still aaalmost too thick). man i sound like a grumpy old man! haha! i think i will always be this way when it comes to type.

Hey, Thanks so much Simon, Nathan, and HerbyDerby! I am really pleased with the direction this is going, just have to wait to see what the client thinks! I certainly appreciate your in depth analysis Nathan! I think you have some good points, and I still hope to see this refined a bit more. Thanks again!

This is a great design, but like watermarker said previously, The capital %22L%22 here for some reason is too close to a lowercase %22f%22 in this kind of style. The flourish of the %22L%22 looks like it's serving as an underline for the word fist (even though I understand its appearance right now is for continuity). My two cents is to give the %22L%22's flourish a little more weight. This is just my opinion. Apologies if this has been discussed already before.
