I'm digging the simplicity of the hands on this update. One color might be the way to go on the hands...it flows better.**I think the mark is solid but the type needs some help. Make some breathing room between the mark/type and explore some other options with fonts. Have you tried %22massage%22 in uppercase so you have more work room with the type underneath? Just curious to what you've all tried....I'm just one opinion.

i would love to c the mark and typeface combine in some ways...maybe its the way the mark flows it creates a negative space...and because of that, the structure of this logo does not come together...IMO.

It's definitely becoming better! Keep messing with the fonts. I'm the worst with fonts so I hope others will comment on whether serif or sans serif....

You might actually be able to get away with italics on the font. It might reinforce the %22flow%22.

Love the simplicity on chromatics and form. I would suggest only to soften the ending of the fingers, and maybe reduce the space just a bit between the characters to make a resemblance on all of the composition. But a great and fine work indeed!

@Jerron thanks bud. I contacted 99design and I hope they make this designer take it down. Appreciate the watchful eye.

Good luck getting it withdrawn from the site Mike. I've found 99 dezigns to be the least cooperative crowdsourcing site where removal of stolen work is concerned.

Well, I hope they change, Roy.
They had someone using my pencil light bulb as their personal avatar, and after I contacted them they at least made that designer take that down.
But this being a placed as a logo for sale, may be a lot tougher. We'll see.
