    Exclamation Help Me Choose A New Logo (or not!)

    I am considering modifying my logo (pictured on the left). The plan is to still keep it simple, but change it from the Papyrus font to something else that still communicates traditionalism and new media by showing a hand-held artistic font on top of the URL.

    Not sure if I should even change it, but if I do, I’ve created two modifications of the original that I’m debating between.

    Give me your feedback on either Version A or Version B by leaving a comment for A or B (or let me know if I just need to keep the current logo):

    Oh man, definately change the current one what ever you do. I have a whole group of artist friends from diff. backgrounds who make fun of everything they see with the Papyrus font because it is SO overused.

    I'd say A is more readable (the extra spat on B makes it look less like a "k"). A looks like your studio does "kiddie" stuff, B looks more "adult." Whichever you do, the ".org" bit bugs me...I'm thinking it'd look better aligned to the right.

    Why are they on tees?

    Thanks Mirana-

    I put them on Tees to get a better idea of how they'll look offline, plus that will be one of my first projects with the new logo other than bcards, website, etc.

    Thanks for the great feedback!

    A looks alright, but I'd get more thick/thin line proportion going for it, because it seems clean but also bland.

    I'd personally adjust the first line "Kreative" to be the same length as the second line. If they were obviously different lengths that would be fine, but having them be nearly the same length is distracting. Your eye wants them to either be different or the same, and close but not quite is distracting.

    I agree with Miranda that the org might look better justified right. Maybe smaller too since it isn't the important part of the logo.

    I took a quick look at your site to determine which font fits your style most. I have to say I don't think either communicates Christian artist to me. Have you tried something more calligraphic?

    Thanks for the feedback!

    Concerning a calligraphic logo: I'm actually trying to lean more away from the traditional or "churchy" treatment since my art and the art of some of my online community is not traditional "religious" art. you may have seen that from my warrior Jesus pic

    Kinda like how contemporary Christian music is miles away from the traditional stuff in it's style.

    Keep the feedback comin'! this is needed.

    I can understand that. Of course you can work with the font too rather than just use it straight, to help modernize it. For example overlay a cool texture on it to grunge it up some, but still retain that religious vibe without going too churchy. For example a pitted metal texture (simplified into that stark black/white look you have) might work well. Just a thought.

    Out of your choices I do like B best, but as someone else mentioned there's an extra stroke there that makes it a little less readable as a K.

    I would go with version B. Just keep playing around with the bottom text and maybe try and reduce the the height of the logo.

    Honestly I think you need to go with a logo re-design in just about every aspect.
    But you're not asking me that, so I say go with B

    If you pray on it, the blessings of a solid logo idea may yet come unto you. But if not, if inspiration is denied... do not despair. For IT IS WRITTEN that God shalt deliver over a file as an attachment seven days hence. And it shall be opened up like a blossom, uncorrupted, with humility, in Photoshop of Adobe. And yea shall this Design be a mark... a logo of divine mastery, clean and strong, of two color, with soft drop shadow and glorious lens flare that glints like sunlight bounc'd through a Nikon X-60 zoom. And the resolution shalt be 400 dpi.

    And thy lips shalt form the words...

    "It is good."
