    Cool Logo Critique
    Hey everyone,

    I've been working really hard on this logo, and I wanted to know what you all thought. I even made sure it looks good small and in grayscale. Let me know if you see anything that could be improved.








    Bonus points if you can guess the font.

    (Yes, this is a joke.)

    try having shadows from the sun (middle guy, right arm). That will give it a sense of depth/realism.

    I would point to this article:
    Typography for Lawyers

    "Distinctive is fine; goofy is not. Novelty fonts, weird fonts, outline fonts, shadow fonts—these have no place in any document created by a lawyer. "

    The design doesn't strike me as being very "lawerly". The capitalization is also odd – why is "attorneys" not capitalized?
    Alternative font example:


    Not sure if the image really goes with the font now though...

    I would drop the image all together and go with the type Aptmunich suggested.

    Are the images from a clipart library?

    Sorry guys, I tried to make it clear but didn't come over well enough: this was a joke. I would never even consider using Comic Sans, clipart, and a rainbow gradient for a logo (regardless of who it's for).

    And on that note, I added a motto!



    (Thanks to everyone who so kindly offered advice, though. I feel kind of guilty now.)

    and to think i was trying to figure out a way to politely offer my services...and yes the London 2012 logo is one of the worst I have seen, I hope they didn't pay much for that.

    The London 2012 logo cost £400,000. Nice work if you can get it.

    Well, I don't want to sound harsh or anything, but you did name this thread critique
    Anyway the logo looks a little childish, you should consider what Aptmunich suggested and I personally, I would ditch the sun background

    I, too, was a little worried until I realized that that logo was a joke

    But, sadly, I do think that it is better than the London 2012 logo...which someone was actually paid to make....Oh, God
