I need help with my next moves. Or maybe I should trash it. This is unfinished and I'm looking for harsh critique. Thanks

You get your wish. This is going to be harsh.

I'm basing this off of nothing, because i don't know your work, and you don't have a working www link. I suggest
posting a link to your work so we have a better idea of how this logo does or doesn't fit.

First impressions:

You're a startup space exploration program

Second impression:

You're a startup space exploration program that's failing because your logo is terrible :-p



But seriously. Hire someone. I can get a pretty good idea just by seeing what you've made here, that you're
just like me, and can't design for your life. Snap judgement, yes. I think that people (myself included) feel
pressured and compelled to use their initials as a logo. And I think usually it looks horrible. I would skip
the letters and just use your name.

Ditch the moon.

Get a different font, this one makes me think of a sci-fi movie set in the future featuring tom cruise

grey on grey. boring.

From a non graphic designer, what about a different font, and ditch the circle. Move the M&G in the first part of your logo to the same line as the words.

I think your logo idea is ok, your initials in an egocentric central position as the ego of an artist is quite important, sort out that terrible font and boring colors and you will have a different thing.

google for color harmony and font meaning and you wont need to hire anybody.

that's so funny, because I told my graphic designer to buy a camera and a book and he could just take
his own headshots.

It does not match the feel of your work IMO. Its industrial/science looking and your work is more 'soft and airy' I guess you could say...

+jprezant on the DIY. Making a logo to aid in creating a brand is not something to DIY. Most DIY use PS and thats not the program to make a logo, its actually one of the worst to use, its raster based. (not saying the OP did, just making a point to the DIY crowd)



I can professionally help you Mark.

What Jaon said. Its pretty much NASA.

At the very least specc it on 99designs or something, preferably work with a local designer. If the budget is not there, hook a design student up with some beer money in exchange for a few ideas!
