I wonder if it would be cool to even be a tiny bit more literal on the pencil
a wood color where the white of the pencil is would really make it pop, I had to stare at it a while before I saw the pencil
Or maybe make that yellow-green color more like the traditional golden-yellow of the classic pencil. In any case, it's a nice concept.
Very creative, I didn't get it right away though. It looks great and works well but I have to point out the negative connotations that the pencil is going backwards vs forwards.
Thanks all. Yeah this is still really early on... I just like the concept. I'm sure I'll be toying with this for a long time till I get it to a really good spot.
I agree with Andrew about the colour but the simplicity is perfect saw the pencil straight away.
This is actually perfectly executed! I agree with the above about having the a slightly peachy shade for the pencil, just to make it more obvious, but it's really really great.
Was just looking at your first shot—it might look wonky, but if you stacked "MAKE" vertically, you could perhaps have the pencil tip coming off the M, like you had, with all the text yellow beneath it.
I like this. Subtle and clever.
When it's all caps like this, there are literally a dozen or so places you could put a pencil in the negative space. My favorite right now is the negative space in the A.
i'm digging this too. maybe this is a tacky suggestion but on the left vertical of the E...if you made that wavy and irregular perhaps that'd make the pencil jump out even more? what do i know.
OMG, I'm SO dumb. I just realized what it was… *smacks forehead*
To make the pencil stand out more / look more like a pencil, you could remove the vertical stem on the E so it would just be 3 horizontal lines? It would still be an E and a pencil. Or Donny Nguyen's idea would work too! Make the vertical wavy.
And about what Andrew Griswold said earlier, the pencil going backwards vs. forwards. this wouldn't work for someone who is left handed but the pencil right now seems like it is being held by someone who is right handed and they are drawing or "making" the logo.
Needs a bit more polish and care but I think this is excellent! :)
