    • Hi Eugine,

      Thanks for your comment.

      I would be very mindful of how you would be presenting your brand without the logo. i.e. Your text is tied to the logo as opposed to a text mark and logo mark next to each other. This makes it difficult to use in smaller sizes as the text is lost and for the web generally horizontal logos work best in traditional web layouts.

      The direction you have taken is good. I get it immediately, the mask represents theatre and the dragon a ‘Wyrven’. I am unsure as to what the egg represents. Knowing nothing about your theatre group certainly makes it hard.
      Be mindful that everything in your logo should be justified and explainable. Just because something looks cool / is a good idea doesn’t mean it is representative of who you are as a brand.

      Can I suggest looking at a treatment of just a Wryven holding the theatre mask(s) on its own next to the name of the group in a legible text.

      Also I would suggest using 99designs if you were looking to get a professional treatment for a very reasonable price.

      Best regards,

  5. Needed to draft you this little bit of word to help say thanks a lot the moment again on the remarkable methods you’ve documented here. It was simply pretty generous with you to make freely exactly what a lot of people would’ve distributed as an e book in making some bucks for themselves, certainly considering that you might have tried it in case you decided. These good tips in addition served to become a easy way to realize that other people online have the identical fervor like my own to know the truth a lot more concerning this matter. I am certain there are thousands of more pleasant times up front for many who browse through your blog.
