First draft of a logo for a work in progress personal project (A Social Commerce Party Playlist)
Story behind the logo, a play button inside a imaginary '3D' box ... that was the idea anyway.

I like where you are going with the 3D effect and the typography looks beautiful.
Just a though: A play icon is typically has the point facing the right. I would rotate it by one side inside he cube that should stay put (the tilt looks great).
The 3D illusion was not very clear until explained. Not too sure what can be done about that.
@Joe Baker Thanks for the feedback. I tried to steer clear of the typical conventions of a play button's orientation. The '3D' box was just an idea, to slightly symbolise the play button being encapsulated.
I've attached another version, with the whole logo rotated, although this signifies a box more so, and the play button is facing the traditional direction, it seems a bit too obvious in my opinion.
Really appreciate the feedback =).
@Adam Pugsley That's not quite what I had in mind. Could we try leaving the cube put as shown in the initial shot and rotate the triangle so the point is touching the furthest right edge of the cube?
This would keep both shapes slightly tilted and could help with unconventional look you are aiming for whilst still being recognisable.
You might be playing with the 3D illusion but I think it has great potential.
@Joe Baker uploaded alternative 2, now its up to the other players preferences.
Just a concept / first draft. I think it's a little too simple, and a bit illustrator 101'ish but sometimes simplicity is best.
Thanks for the feedback Joe.
@Adam Pugsley Awesome. Thanks for the amend, looks good.
