Please can you let me have your opinions on this logo for a small landscape design company in london. What you like - what you don't - how it could be improved etc thank you spirit
I agree, a bit to the left and perhaps a bit smaller, too.
Is that Mrs Eaves? 'bird' looks a bit loose relative to 'Lady', particularly spacing around the i. I agree, align the center of the bug's body with the vertical axis of the i.
Visualy my only problem is with the huge gap a capital L creates The hole between L and a is disturbing.
Gap on capital L

I don't think it's too bad, but shortening the leg on the L by about 15% would help.
Apologies for the delay in my response Thank you all for your comments which I have found very helpful and - as expected - completely right! I have moved the bug to the left a bit and made it slightly smaller, tightened up the spacing on "bird" and shortened the leg on the L (which was bothering me a lot too). See the new version below... The font is indeed Mrs Eaves (I love it!) but I took the "y" from the "py" ligature as it seemed to work better with the word "landscapes" underneath. If you have anymore comments I would love to hear them - good or bad. Thanks.
Looks good, Steve. I thought that might be an alternate Y, but I don't own Mrs Eaves so I don't use it every day. One quick fix
Maybe tighten the "dyb" a hair. And tighten the "CAP" more. hhp
Steve, are your clients going to use this logo on a van? If so add a bit of a drop shadow to the ladybug for an effect. It wouldn't read at small sizes but on a van or poster it could.
