Thanks buddy, the font is just something to show what the name is at the moment. **I like to finish the mark before i look at the fonts :)

Hey buddy! Is there a way to somehow show the 'entrepreneur' part of the message? This mark as it is could stand next to Global Graduate, or World University Students, yah know what I mean? It's nice and simple but I think it needs a tad deeper meaning for that brand name...

What about incoporating a hand into the mark somehow to symbolize the meaning of an entrepreneur? Maybe a hand holding the globe and the graduation hat. An entrepreneur is personality who is willing to take upon herself or himself a new venture or enterprise and accept full responsibility for the outcome. Just an idea! i like where you are going with this.

although the mark looks really nice I'm instantly thinking 'exchange student' more than entrepreneur.

the mark seems a little too big for the type - i'd reduce it by about 50%25 to give a little more balance with the type

cheers guys.**Alessandro, my problem with trends are that many of them don't even exist. People make them up. I've looked on so many blogs about trends and so many of them are complete b*llshit, for example look at this http://www.logoblog.org/wordpress/2009-logo-design-trends/?utm_source%3Dfeedburner%26utm_medium%3Dfeed%26utm_campaign%3DFeed%253A logoblog %2528Logo Design Blog%2529**'Circular' HOW is that a trend? 'typographic'? WHAT?! Can i not make a typographic logo without being hassled by people saying im succumbing to trends. People make up trends that don't exist then open the debate on whether or not it's ethical to 'follow' them. The problem is that people read this and believe it so when they see a 'circular' logo they see a lack of talent in the designer for not being creative enough and following these 'trends'...**Anyway, to bring it back the subject, theres so much more to creating a logo or brand identity than just whether some person has written the words %22globes are overused%22 and many people see the designer in a negative light because they have read and believed this. It's hard to understand logos in the context of brand identity but it's not just simply refusing to consider or like a design because an element of it has been used before. In my opinion globes are overused but I feel i have used it in a different way from what the 'trend' is, which is mainly glossy web 2.0 globes. People who believe all these trend blogs are narrow minded in my opinion, and i don't mean you, Alessandro, as globes have been used regularly in the past.**anyway, rant over, I'm not sure how many of you will read that though haha!

Well said, indeed. Most %22trends%22 only apply out of context anyway. Sometimes even the most skilled designer are forced to create an original, specific solution from an unoriginal, broad starting point. **And on that note- This is pretty awesome. I agree w/ Type08, in that I feel entrepreneur should be better portrayed, at least a little. (Maybe something subtle with the tassle?) I'm sure it will come to you. Very nice work.

Cheers Roko, Chad.**Some blogs/people are absolute poison with their dodgy opinions. It's a shame.**This was one of three concepts put forward, I'll let you know how get on :)

Sorry Alessandro, the majority of my comment wasn't directed at you, these blogs are just something that annoys me these days and I thought I'd have a wee rant! :)**You are right, globes are over used but, like anything, if it is pulled off right then there's nothing wrong with using them, in my opinion. In this case I really don't feel strongly enough about it to care that much, after all this concept was not chosen.

%5E yup yup,**anyway, I hope no one takes my comments out of context, they really aren't directed at anyone in particular and I say everything with a smile on my face :) (not literally, that would become kinda creepy)

Thanks for pointing that out, Niall, they're really similar, luckily it's not in use :)**Never knew that, Tony, luckily this is in logo limbo so it doesn't really matter.**Cheers :)
