    The leaf looks very round, like it's been squashed.

    The tagline is a touch too small.

    In general, I like the tone. It's not too hippy, not too mumsy. I think of health tea drinkers,...

    What colour is their logo?

    I think you should be asking your client/boss about the colours to be used. They might already have an existing brand.

    Sometimes they make the test purposely hard to see if you crumble. Sure, you might be able to better in hindsight, but you didn't crumble. You did OK.

    I remember I did a test once for a magazine....

    I see a fishing hook. When you play around with letterforms, you might accidentally create an illustration. Typographic illustrations generally don't work well for law firms which tend to stay with more...

    400gsm laminated is pretty thick. But it does sound like the cutter did a bad job. Why don't you talk to your printer about it?

    Conceptually would it be frowned upon to use some variation or combination of hands or a bird for a personal logo? I'm a recent design graduate and after much thought, use of lists, questions and reflection I'd like to use those symbols to reflect upon my goals, my work ethic and personality. I'm trying to be vague purposely so that if there is a hint of this working I can find the solution on my own as I'm trying to challenge myself and make it as individualistic as possible.


    Just wondering if it's so overdone that I shouldn't even bother to continue this past my sketches. I've been hard pressed to find these actual ideas in use, especially for personal design identities. After much thought it is something that I feel captures my spirit and means something to me and I do realistically want to pursue this- how much more thought should there be? Part of me says to stop here and let instinct take over. It follows my brief, the way I'd like to execute it seems purposeful, appropriate and memorable- just wanted a second opinion of those active in design.

    I see nothing wrong with the concept; it's the implementation and execution that will make or break your idea. There are certainly other hand and bird logos, but if yours is unique, interesting and aesthetically worthwhile, I sure don't see a problem.

      Have a look at other bird/hand logos and strive to do something different.
      It is more fun to talk with someone who doesn't use long, difficult words but rather short, easy words like "What about lunch?" Winnie the Pooh

        If you can make it personal - go for it I dont see any problem if it comes from genuine inspiration.
