Does the m have a reason to be dropping off?
@Shannon Hatch The M is a result of how i naturally wrote the word. I did pick the best parts of two attempts and merged them. I tossed up whether to straighten the M but, I guess i liked the character it brought to the overall signature. I am open to changing it though, so your feedback is definitely taken on board.
This is truly great. That B-e ligature is amazing, and I really like the t crossbar. I can't decide about the m, but I'm leaning toward liking it as an interesting eccentricity.
@Matt Vergotis Ok cool :) I don't think it is bad but it did raise a question as to does it work better then if it was on same angle as the rest :) nice work
I think B and M need more work :)
@Jeff Jenkins thanks mate! appreciate the feedback. i may fool around with the m. i still want to finish it a little loosely with the last few strokes, but i may bring it up a little.
@Shannon Hatch It was a good point. I need to finish the presentation this weekend so i will tweak it a little with that in mind.
@Daniel Campos (Anora Campo) Talk to me Daniel, what's your thoughts on the B?
I personally love that 'B'. The way it swoops down to connect to the 'e' is just stunning. The only thing I would suggest about it is making its main stem slightly taller as at the minute, it feels a tiny bit chopped off. Actually perhaps the 't' would benefit from the same adjustment? The crossbar feels a little close to the top of the letter.
Anyway though, the overall piece looks great and I quite like the 'm' like that.. It does add a wonderful touch of character. I think it also works because the angle of the 'r' subtly leans in towards it, which helps it look natural.
@Claire Coullon thanks claire for stopping by and leaving your comment. Always reassuring when feedback is aligned with your own thoughts. I have taken on board what you said and agree it looks better now with the stems lengthened. I have also had a little play with the 'm'. I haven't changed it too much, just tightened and brought it up a smidgen. It still has the same effect, just a little less pronounced. I'll post one more shot of it when i finish the presentation. thanks again!

This is a screen grab of the presentation I just finished for Betafirm.
You can see the full presentation here.
In a nutshell the client requested a signature style logo and an identity that was approachable and fun. Betafirm is a web development and mobile application company.

I think that B can be like F: lines with modulation, lines thick and thin :)
There is so much character to this wordmark. I really, really love it. I already expressed how much I love the A-F-I combo, but that B-E combo is the JAM. There is just so much interesting expressiveness to that B. And the M — I love it, dude. Has tons of character. After reading @Claire Coullon 's comments about the B and T stems, I agree, but it looks like you've already tightened those areas up. Good show, overall, buddy!
This is great man, do you do all the lettering by hand and then vector it, because it seem like a lot of your letters are unique?
@Llew Mejia thanks mate. Yes, all done by hand first, written until i can feel a connection (can be from first or seventy eighth attempt), then illustrated at a larger detailed view with line stokes angle weights & intricacies, then hours spent vectoring to get those sweet curves bang on.
nice ya it looks like it takes a while, pays off for perfection though, great stuff man!
@Llew Mejia cheers mate.
