    I don't like the way the 'd' clashes with the 'N', but the type is gorgeous.

    I faced the same issue when I was working on a header a while back. Applying a stroke seemed to help. http://dribbble.com/shots/265885-Immersion

    @jack hmm. I tried that route and it didn't seem appropriate since the ascender on the d was the only issue where this occured. It feels better when there are more. I think its probably working pretty well, but let me know if you have other thoughts :)

    Re: solving the ascender issue, maybe give it a touch more breathing room at the top—everything else about the logo is airy and spacious, but that top relationship is cramped.

    Also, something about the connection between the y-a seems off, like that's not a natural stroke.

    Very good, what fonts did you use?

    @Joshua Blankenship interesting. So the area between IRON and THE? Also the y-a is standard for "Fancier Script", but may be a weak spot. I see the small area you're talking about. Good eye.

    @Matthew Smith I'm talking about the space between the d's ascender and the diagonal on the N where it almost touches but it doesn't. It's the only tight thing in an otherwise airy logo.
