Logotype work in progress The bottom one seems to be the strongest one out of all the sketches here, as well as the chicken scratches that I didn't upload.
Still in the rough stages, trying to figure out the letter relationships, balance out the curves and the amount of curves, etc. Thoughts?

I really really like the swash on the top-left stem of the 'M' (not too sure about the right one). I would work on the weight contrast a little more (some are a bit too heavy in comparison), such as the 't' and lowercase 'm'. Hope to see more of this, Nikita. Well done.
That bottom one is looking stunning already, love what you're doing with the swashes (especially that top left 'M' one, as @Christopher Burton mentioned).
Would love to see the lower right 'M' stem extend a little below the 'o', it could create some nice balance. Otherwise, the only thing that's bugging me a little at the minute is the 't-i' ligature, which feels slightly abrupt. Maybe the crossbar could have more curvature to it, so it flows better into the 'i' dot? Anyway, really looking forward to seeing the next steps (and I hope you drew this in the right sketchbook).
@Christopher, great points about evening out the letters and the contrast. Will work on it in the next round.
@Claire...nooooo! I drew it in the wrong sketchbook. You got me.
Good idea on extending the M. I did it in the very rough version but didn't like how it looked. Then again..it was VERY rough, so I may bring it back in the refined stages. Achieving more overall balance is definitely the next stage...
Haha I knew you couldn't keep up the separate sketchbooks.. For the 'M', it could always be a simple extended stroke (rather than a full on swash), that way you'd get the balance without it detracting from the ones at the top. Either way, I'll keep an eye out for the next stage!
Looking good, Nikita. My input is that the left stem of the 'n' isn't consistent with the left stem of the 'm'.
