Now this project really excites me. Not sure if I'm allowed to say much about what the whole project is but I think I can mention that the logo design is for a food and recipe discovery/ sharing website. Make a meal is the name so in this logo I tried incorporating a fork, the letter M and I also wanted to suggest food without really overdoing it so I ended up with the circle that I thought could represent either a pea or the world's most perfectly shaped bean EVER. Or just anything round and preferably biggish enough to get someone to choke on it. You can check out the attachment for larger preview pleasure... or eye torture. Depends what you're into or how you receive it.
Feedback much appreciated.
P.S. Kidding about the whole choking thing.

What program is this that lets you build with/show construction lines? Or are you (and others) adding those in for our benefit?

@Dan Draper It is the grids you can find in Photoshop and/or Illustrator by pressing cmd/ctr and the ' key. Most people (myself included) do it for geometry and measurements... Actually I think it might be in all the creative suite applications.
I know about the grids; let me rephrase... The little dashed circles (for example); is there a feature of Illustrator/Photoshop which allows you to show the complete circumference of every circle that went into creating individual arcs in your logo, or have you simply left those shapes in and then turned them into dashed lines for our viewing benefit? Does that make sense?
@Dan Draper Oh, shoot. I completely misunderstood you and I feel like such a monkey. Yes, after using them for construction, those circles are left in there to kinda indicate and show how the logo was developed. I believe showing these "construction lines" tells a bit of a story about the development of a logo. Sorta like a "how to" in a single image.
Hope that made sense.
Haha, no worries; I'm not sure there was any crystal clear way of communicating that question.
That's what I figured but wanted to check; I see these shots from time to time with the construction lines and have worried that I'm missing out on some really cool piece of logo design software where you simply draw your shapes and then fill color into the gaps with the paint bucket tool and it magically spits out a finished vector file. No such luck I guess! ;-)
