The mark is great looking Sean. I think it would still be strong without the stuff in the middle, but probably makes it stand out more with them. Want to see some type with it too... :)

Hey, thanks a lot, Anthony, Mike, Joe and Srdjan, I appreciate it! Well (ahem), the font(s) is something the client has given a directive on. :) They want their name as an acronym and again the font(s) are already set in stone. I think it's ok but would not have been my first choice at all. Shall I revert and reload the symbol here instead, like I had it?

@Joe: They are looking to make the mark a bit more unique to them than just the hands, and the tree/mountains help do that. I like it without the hands too, I have a version like that, several actually.

Might be able to change the typeface I guess! Woohoo! I'll post some type soon. Thanks again everyone!

I like this very much. Well done Sean. But I would love to see a type treatment aswell.

Thanks Andrei and Paul. Sorry for the confusion, folks. The client originally said they had a typeface in mind and were set on using it but talked with them today and they are open to changing it. So, here's one of the typefaces I am proposing. They definitely want an acronym. They are a pretty buttoned up company and so a clean, structured solution seemed fitting which also works well with the simplicity of the mark. I tweaked and modified a font by rounding corners to match the round qualities in the mark.

Oh, and they like lowercase as a possibility.

Thanks, javaap. Yeah, I'm pushing for them to consider this color scheme, I think it's very friendly.

Really nice concept Sean. Color scheme is great, but mark in my opinion is to large in relation to typo.

Updated. Thanks, Jovan. I agree with you. I himmed and hawwed about the size and felt it might be a touch big but given the detail in the mark I opted to weight it just a bit to the symbol dominant side. It's been bugging me too. I brought it down some and I think it feels better now. Probably could go a hair more but I'm striving to keep it from getting too small.

IMO I think the update helped. Personally agree with you about the size.

Cool, thanks, Matt.

Thanks, Michael, as always!

Well, unfortunately the client did not go with this. They opted for the typical - they decided to take another one of my proposals and redesign it themselves. So feel free to float this if you haven't, or buy me a drink, to help ease the pain.
