Second concept for formerly's logo, hand drawn by pencil on paper and then vectorized on Illustrator.
I'll be glad to receive some feedback on the overall shapes of the vectorized letter and tips on how to improve it.

In my honest opinion, I think theres a much better direction. If this is the stand-alone icon, then you're competing against another 'f' icon which is much more identifiable. When I first saw the shot, I thought it was a new typeface you may be working on.
I think your best bet would be to go in the direction of 'form' and look at some ways to express that. Whether its taking shapes that form the letter 'f' in the negative space or thinking laterally what my best represent the word form... i.e: hands, clay, seed, etc
Here I was working on the shape in illustrator to provide some tips and didn't even think to look further into the intention of the logo and provide feedback on the direction. I second Sean's advice.
Thank you Sean and... thank you Sean! :P
I agree with you that using the "f" as stand-alone mark would try to compete (and would fail) with a more known "f". That's something that must be considered deeply. Thank you.
So you both are saying to leave out the idea of using this "f" alone, but instead to work on something more remarkable like the complete lettering (or a new font based on these shapes) or work on something that would build, through negative space or other shapes, the stand-alone "f".
Is this what you were suggesting me?
Yes, that is how I interpreted his comment and what I am also suggesting.
Thanks Sean (McCabe)... Well, at least I've done a good thing! I've drawn a letter that has aroused some interest! :P
Should I continue working on it and design the complete alphabet?
Hey Mattia, I'm a bit late seeing this, but I agree with great feedback by the Seans. I do really like the letterform - especially the curves near the top. The letter gives off a really nice style with an elegant, original feel. I'd say it would definitely be worth developing more characters and seeing where it goes!
Hello Claire! It's such a great pleasure for me reading your feedback on my work! Thank you!
I will definitely consider the possibiltiy to develop this alphabet, I'm sure it could born something interesting... Let's see what happens!
I guess I'll throw away my idea of using the stand-alone "f" as mark considering your feedbacks, I must explore some new directions.
Thank you again, I've appreciated your comment! :)
No problem, looking forward to seeing some new ideas!

Hi Mattia, you know what's behind. :-)

That's a beautifully shaped glyph regardless of whether it works as a logo or not.
Thank you Alex. I hope to find the time to develop some other letters' shapes...

Now it's monochromatic.
