    Are you on TDPRI while you're supposed to be teaching? Shame.

    Hang on, a student of mine needs some help...

    In a late spurt of personal growth, I have tried recently to acknowledge guilt but refuse shame. I am shamelessly guilty.

    I didn't realize we have so many log experts here or I would have asked for help! This is a logo I created for my consulting business: The company is named for a nearby body of water (Spruce Creek), so it is meant to evoke a creek with spruce on either side - I provide financial planning services to large, capital intensive businesses like real estate developers so it is also meant to evoke a graph of cumulative cash flows - a typical project cycle starts with some money, goes negative as investment accelerates, then ends high once the returns are realized (or so one hopes).

    Typically it has the company name underneath it, but I'm not trying to advertise my services here, so logo only - and it is typically set against a white background so it is 'floating' rather than showing in a white box as I am sure TDPRI shows it.

    So is it really bad or just kind of bad?

    Speaking of logos, this absorbing video shows a guy hand drawing some famous logos including a couple of Rock bands;

    I hate to break it to you but it's not the latter.;)

    Rather than me trying to guide you through a better logo, spend the money on hiring a professional. Which means an actual designer, with qualifications, not your nephew with his cracked copy of Photoshop. Work together to make the logo you want, and they will bring things to the table to help you understand what you need from a logo. Your service is dealing with rich folk, let them know you're serious. It won't guarantee you the gig but it may just tip it in your favour. Basically a good logo and branding can only be positive, and it's a relatively small outlay.

    And two huge ones, don't crowd source, and don't offer some fledgling designer a chance to pad out their portfolio for free. Not that you would, but some people...

    Yeah, the blue octagon is a bit more pride-inducing than the current red and gray.

    @RogerC picked up the Sun Microsystems logo - I was going to post that.

    I cannot believe we got to page 7 and nobody posted this:

    Not a fan of either team, but I think the Raiders and Steelers are two iconic sports logos.

    Also, surprised no one has mentioned the Cowboys' star.
