    I'm fully aware that the first logo is black and white, I was commenting on how difficult it is to read at any distance other than on top of it.

    The only versions that are really that legible...

    In the first link, the very first logo is B&W. I think the one with your initials are stronger, but definitely needs some work and tightening up.

    What does your logo say about you?...

    Holy Spiro-graph flashback...

    I think there is a plug-in but you can do it manually or with a math script. It looks like it was R&Rd then was clipped to shape after the fact using Pathfinder though.

            its not a plug in guys, i can't remember how to do this though, one of my designer buds showed me this a couple years back, and I never had any use for it so it got deleted from my brains hardrive. but its not a plug in, i know that for sure.

                Choose the line tool. Draw a line. In the stroke menu, give the stroke width you want. Now, delete the line. Draw another line, but this time, keep the mouse button held down and press and hold the ` key (the key at the top left, also has the ~ symbol on it) and start dragging your mouse around. The faster you drag, the wider the gaps become.

                  this works with any shape tool. You can make some really weird designs.

                      For Spirograph fun, try it with the spiral tool.

                            OOOOOO! Trippy... Thanks, that's a great little trick!

                            Edit: Is there a way to make the lines evenly spaced? I know I can hold shift, but I can only get the angles I have set in the preferences, and I don't think I can preset enough angles to get the same effect....
