Description: Architecture Logo idea my brother asked me to come up with. Look at it as if the T is facing the left, and the D is facing the right. Pretty much fried my brain sketching this out. This version has typography with it. © 2011 Nathan Trafford

I've tried to do this once before and haven't executed it nearly as well as you have. good balance and composition. Great job!

Wow, nice job on achieving the optical illusion. I like how it looks with the minimal type lockup. Looks very architectural. On screen, at this size, the thin lines from the mark blur together, causing it to look a bit messy, but it looks fine in your other, larger version (just the mark). Printing this at small sizes could prove challenging if those lines are smaller than .25 pt. You might want to think about working up another version that doesn't use such thin lines (or any lines at all), that would be used at smaller sizes.

I know it, that line mushiness makes me sad :/ Maybe the smallest version has less lines?

This logo is very nice. Not so simple as I thought first 5 seconds. :)

Thanks guys! Fun little exercise of a logo. Need to figure out a way to make those vertical lines less goofy on screen.

Thank's everyone. This is simply Helvetica Neue - light condensed.
