It's a logo for a label for my best friend and I. Important elements to capture: King and DeCoste (Water, Nautical, The Coast). I hope that this logo captures both a kingly and nautical feeling.

Totally gettin' both vibes. Nice work.
Yes, those two things came immediately to mind great work!
initially, i thought of king and thorny crown, but it's definitely kingly and nautical.
Very nice mark. The curves of the crown are very enjoyable.
Meredith, King and thorny crown isn't a bad vibe either! I'm ok with that presence, especially if it pulls off nautical too :)
@Brendan, totally. The King of the Sea.
Cool crown Mr. King!

I like this a lot. I think it portrays exactly what it needed to.
Seriously, get off Dribbble with your n00bish designs.
Chris is the Jar-jar binks of the internet.
Rogie speaks truth.
Jesse is Jabba the Hut and Rogie is Chewbacca.
I really like this logo. Simple and clear - I think it works really well. The *only* thing I would possibly change would be to "thicken up" the bottom part of the crown a bit. I think it would make the crown a bit more substantial. Does that make any sense?
Just my two cents.
@Chuck can you elaborate on that? I'm not quite getting the thicken up part. Would love to hear your thoughts.

A bit less "frog paw-like". :) It may not be an improvement, just an idea. Sometimes you don't know until you see it. Feel free to completely ignore this, Rogie. :)
@chriswallace - I'm Han Solo, Captain of the Millennium Falcon, the fasted ship in the Galaxy. It made the Kessel Run in less than 12 parsecs. And yes, I'm smart enough to know that a parsec is a measurement of distance, not speed, but it sounds cool. And yes, I'm a scruffy-lookin' Nerfherder.
On topic: I like this mark a lot. I think that it definitely gets the "royal maritime" vibe across clearly. Well done.
It's so gorgeously simple. I've been working on a logo for our own little shindig for months and it's really tough to get the right balance of symbolism and simplicity in a single mark. I'm a bit jealous of how easy you made it look though.
Honestly, Patrick I sketched this thing like 10 times and designed it once. It sort of all came together and is one of those totally freakishly lucky moments for me as a designer.
I have also been known to pull on the bezier handles on a logo for 10 hours on end and to come up with something I totally hate.
I love this! I do think the crown feels less kingly though. Its about its position. It's trapped inside the nautical element. A crown that communicates kingship is always on top, its the... well... crown of the design. So in this case, the crown feels youthful and fun, even a little bit spry, but not regal. But it still may hit what you're after too. #justsayin' :)
This is going to make you slit your wrists. Do you watch American Chopper? Have you seen the Paul Jr. logo? So ya, the douchey son started his own design company, and here's his logo: gross, huh? (that's a JR btw)
Your crown is Sooo much better, but I knew I saw a crown recently. :-)
Reminds me at first of the <a href="http://images.google.com/images?client=safari&rls=en&q=westinghouse+logo&oe=UTF-8&um=1&ie=UTF-8&ei=X9N9S6L5A4-QtgfOhq22BQ&sa=X&oi=image_result_group&ct=title&resnum=1&ved=0CBAQsAQwAA>Westinghouse logo</a> but not so much as to cause a problem.
If the stroke weight on the circle were a little lighter (about the same width as the middle thorn of the crown where it meets the ball at the top) I'd feel more comfortable with it I think...
