Samsara Films Identity

I did this Logo a while back and am considering it for inclusion in my portfolio. Before doing so I would like some feedback.
Text is set in Peter Bilak's beautiful Fedra Sans...one of my all time favorite fonts.
I only did business card and logo for client (vs. full collateral). samsara

Pretty nice.
How would the swirl render as line art? Maybe little pixels that emulate the shading? Or better: thin swirling streaks than taper out as the shading gets lighter.

You had to go there...
Rendering in vector is obviously a nice addition (for userbility) in a logo design. I did not take it in that direction when I created it for the client, but think it would be worth doing if it is to be included in my portfolio as a case study. The thin streaks sound like the best solution to me.
OK, I am going to park that for a few days and try it out when I have less deadline approaching. Thanks for the good idea. Hrant.

I'm a lo-fi kinda guy. :-)

Normally, I would be in complete agreeance, about the line art / vector, but this seemes to work fine for me. I guess it's because it is a film (motion) company. Just my first impression.

Same here - I was talking about an alternate lo-fi version.

Wow, the "R" in SAMSARA is beautiful.

I think I want to have it's children.

I'd be worried about the blurry swirl in B/W - what if they had a newspaper ad or on a fax or photocopy - once that yellow is gone it won't look so good.

Can we see that business card you made? I dig this logo.

i think you captured the essence of a motion picture company in a very simple and elegant way. great work.

here is the businesscards I did. They were printed in Asia with cmyk and laminated with thin matte film coating (non-tearable). Image uploaded has a bit of color shift as this was converted back from CMYKbc

Very nice Ole. Why Asia? Is the quality that big? Could you post a photo from them?

It is probably much cheaper to get it printed in Asia, even with shipping:-)
