Lets Discuss

better, and i see what you are doing with the gradated letters, i just don\'t think it adds much and would rather see it one color.

As far as the name goes and direction here. I think he is really onto something great. Maybe just a bit less detail....Less is more.

Nash, thank you.
Colin, it\'s not about just coloring the letters, but pushing the idea forward, making the right accent.
Bram, thanks for helping.
Mike, I\'ve tried to simplify the LED as much as possible, could you clarify what detail do you mean?
David, I post middle stages to get some quick feedback to see where I have to go with the idea, how people react on it. I\'ve read and reflected all the comments, just don\'t want to keep here iterations I don\'t like anymore. Thanks for commenting and liking.

Looking good, apart from the gradient and the little extension inside the D. :)

The gradation/darkening of the letters actually makes sense, the ambient light of the LED & the eventual light decay :)

Thank, TAS, I wish they will say the same)
Thank you, Roy. No gradient here. The little white extension is the light itself.
Thanks, JH :)

i understand what the different coloration is doing with the light, but i really think it detracts from the overall design. this of course is just my opinion.

What Roy said is exactly what I meant. I realize it's not a gradient but in a sense it is by the change of hue. Maybe a tapered light effect through all the letters in the middle if you want to convey that aspect. Just feel you kind of lose the impact of the name at the ending letters/ Just my 2 cents though.

anyway... as I said before (for some reason now deleted)...

what if the light wasn\'t triangular, but more squared?... the triangle seems to take up too much unnecessary space. Squared (rectangular) light would give it a cleaner look, take up less space and still be legible (as well as still look like light)... you D slightly larger than the other letters to give some breathing space above & below the other letters.

looks great, can i have a comment, is there any chance people will read it as \"OITECK\"...

Hi, nido. I\'m not sure rectangled light will still look like light. How about changing the angle?

Try making the 'D" Diode bigger, the same height as the rest of the negative (black)letters,this will allow for a more rectangular approach. I think that is what Nav was saying.

You are my interpreter, Mike) I think the diode is nice when it\'s small. Take a look at the bigger example: http://oi49.tinypic.com/20arz13.jpg

Probably going against the grain here but I think the enclosure complicates the design. I understand why you chose to include it but I think it would translate easier with just the type on its own.

tabithakristen Dec. 01 '12

I think the same Gareth. That\'s why i said I prefer the blue one. Something about the enclosure makes it... over the top and complicated like you said.

ru_ferret Dec. 01 '12

But it\'s nice because of the gradient, b&w variation isn\'t that great: http://oi45.tinypic.com/fcv4tf.jpg.
I know what you mean by enclosure, but really don\'t see any alternative, it seems I\'ve tried everything )

This one looks simple, unusual, new in some way. All that things I\'ve been fighting for these days:) It doesn\'t need gradient to be beautiful, simplicity is beauty.

I definitely like this but how about when it is not reversed out as it is here and used in its positive form? Will it still communicate if the \"light\" is black?

I prefer the blue version over the triangle concept.

I know I\'ve already said how much I love this idea, but maybe it still could be improved:

1) The beam of light could be more focused (reduce the height of the beam at the right), which would reduce the amount of blank space above and below the text.

2) A subtle (and awesome) LED schematic symbol could be formed by the K if the beam ended right at the edge of the letter. Hard to describe, so I quickly drew it up to illustrate:

Hope that is helpful! Your work is awesome!

Maybe is light too big, but the idea which carries this logo is clear and unambiguous. Right in the center Nikita!
