I get the lab part, but the art part isn't really coming through in the mark. Care to elaborate?

Yeah I agree...I don't see the %22art%22 concept on this mark. Is there like a hidden %22a%22 that I can't decipher?

I actually tried putting a paintbrush inside of the tube, but it just wasn't looking right. Aside from that, having something sticking outside of the tube made me think of a Pharmacy rather than a labatory (Rx). I have used the paintbrush in print materials so far, but kept it outside of the actual logo for simplicity sake. I really just wanted to keep it simple.

BTW, thanks for the feedback! Keep it coming :)

I agree with ocularink and nexqunyx, but also is there a way to bring the %22community%22 aspect into the design?

i get the lab but show me some art

Take logopond's logo for example... does it have anything to do with a community of designers and logos? It's just a lilly pad. Not every logo needs to have a billion concepts merged into it. While there is a place for logos like that... I think in this case simplicity is really the key.

i dont agree with you ingero, i mean u do have a point bu u must recon that some terms are much more depictable than others, in the logo pond case its harder to depict a term so vast as logo, on the other hand both art and lab are very depictable perhaps more colors inside the vile would suffis.**it is only natural that with such strong depictable concepts one is bound to demand their presence**its like if i had a company named flying dog and i create a mark if a dog dinking from a puddle

In addition to what chng! is saying, you can have a logo express multiple facets and still be simple. The reason why I asked about the %22community%22 is because in your summary it seems to be a very significant aspect of the brand.%0D*%0D*and if you wanted to shoot for simplicity, imagine your mark standing on it's own without the tagline. Would it still mean the same?

I like chng! idea about more colors in the vile. You could even have the colors mixing up somehow.
