    nice try. A couple of things jump out immediately. Too many colors,,, now, I love color and itry to put "blue" in any and everything. however, you might try and 'tone' it down a bit. I love the transparency effect on the pie chart. Your text in between integrity and systems, gets lost in the mix. I'd be tempted add your color to the curved line, and take out the chart. Other than that, it has a lot of nice elements :)

    Thanks Ryan

    Thanks Ryan I'll take that under advisement.

    I think we're pretty much stuck with this logo as we've been using it now for a few months.

    But I'm designing a new one now for my new business I'm starting..I'll post it later

    thanks again:image28:

    please post some examples of material you've used the logo in, or on. I'd be interested to see how it turns out relative to the content or medium used.

    Ryan.

    Basically, I like the logo concept. But, at first glance, it's way too busy and too many conflicting elements. As a previous poster indicated, "too many colors." It's probably o.k. for a web site where you don't have to pay money for each individual color (such as a press run).When you get down to the slogan: "in everything we do," it visually drops out and you lose the effect. In the bottom right quadrant of the sphere, the dark blue (?) interferes with the "S" of "systems." The shadow behind "Integrity Systems" also makes the company name vibrate, which is to say it causes an optical effect. Good start, but I would simplify it and lose some of the complexity. Hope this helps and I hope you accept my criticism as helpful.

    I concur with my coligues, I like the concept of the design but it is much too busy for my taste. Its like you put too many elements together and it makes it difficult to read. a more basic design with the same theme might look better in print as well IMO. great start though.

    I agree with the statements. I do like the transparency effect. How did it come out in print?

    A good design, although way too many colors. I like the "minimalist" approach and try to stick to no more than four colors tops, unless I'm designing for the web, then anything goes: gradients, colors and variants of colors; but I still like to make what few colors I do use vivid and unmuddied. In this design, the concept is fine, although the colors just don't "pop", if you know what I mean. But, I think you are on the way to a good, workable logo.

    O.K., I'll put in my "two cents worth" here and submit my design for critique. What ya'll think? I admit that I like the "less is more" theory of design.

    P.S. I also think you guys are on the right track with the sphere split into quadrants. Probably worth exploring some more.

    logos etc

    I HOPE NONE OF US HAVE FORGOTTEN OUR 1ST logo creator..
    THE TEMPTATATION IS OVERWHELMING TO USE ALL THE BELLS AND WHISTLES ALL AT ONCE!
    I THOUGHT THAT ALTHOUGH "BUSY" HIS 1st CONCEPT WAS OK EXCEPT FOR THE FONT AND SHADOW etc.

    Old Gray's logo was right on, but he didn't get his name overnight..

    I like Oldie's design also.
    And I agree with the k.i.s.s. theory and forget it sometimes as well.:image10-1:

    Great Re-make

    I really like the re-make that LAMO 1 did ....

    Good , solid and easy to read !!

    A lot of the problem I see on here is the Logo is hard to read.
