Any honest critiques? I'm trying to make something really simple, memorable and friendly that will work well when applied to tshirts, shorts and pretty much everything else.**It's not getting much of a reaction :P**(hand drawn type)

That shade of lime looks a kinda dirty/dull lime. I get what you're doing with the spokes, but the stroke thickness seems too heavy for a bicycle wheel. (it makes the mark look more like a camera shutter closing or a cowboy's boot-spur, to me)**'bicycles' is quite tightly kerned. What would the 'b' look like with a stem on the end to balance it?**

to thisGuy: I would have to say what you wrote was perhaps one of the most comprehensive and insightful comments that I've ever read here on the pond. **Marketing is a fascinating, visual field%3B putting all the elements together to make a comprehensive statement that is, ultimately, effective is the only goal worth pursuing in my opinion. Marketing and designing are not mutually exclusive%3B they are essential to each other's success. I wish more designers knew that. Good to see you have a good grasp of both.

Thanks guys,**I'll look into your suggestions Plantingseeds,**Cheers Justin, never a truer word said. I do realise that it's quite 'middle of the road' and doesn't really create a stir in a place like logopond, but that's okay. The design is just what I set out to create and just what the client is looking for and that's all that matters for me :)**Still have to develop it more though :)**Cheers!
