Hi,*Saw your twitter post... not so sure I can see the S very well, if you hadn't of mentioned it I most probably wouldn't have seen it. Also the type is a bit tight and hard to read. I would increase the tracking or possibly experiment with another font. Also is the gradient necessary? I think a strong vivid colour could work great here, especially with the right type. Just a thought but have you experimented with the thickness of the line?*Anyway, looking forward to your feedback.

@ Type08 : Thanks Alen!**@ Brandsimplicity : Glad you noticed that. Thanks Fabian.**@ JustCreativeDesign : Thanks for commenting Jacob. The 'S' is meant to be a hidden surprise. Kind of like the FedEx arrow. Once you know it's there, you can't miss it. Regarding the type, I wanted something bold that flows well with the mark. It's a slightly customized Century Gothic and I think it works well here. However, I may play around with the tracking. Regarding the weight of the font, this went through many different weights before I found the right balance. For color, I'm usually not one to work with gradients, but in this case I think it works. Gives the logo more depth and a 'galaxy' like feel. Think of all the gradients you see when you do a Google search for %22galaxy%22.**Thanks again!*

I LOVE the mark: i initially just liked it, then saw the %22S,%22 which made me love it even more. Good work!

love it, saw the 'S' right away, and the type is balancing well IMO. As for the gradient, no complaints here :D
