The original idea was a little too modern and sterile, so we opted instead to go for a friendlier, more elegant route. The glasses are visible on the "ey" and the stem of the "k" is one of their uniquely shaped ear frames, both important caveats to the client.
The top is the most current, while the bottom is an earlier version with a few redeeming qualities (noted by the dashed circles). I am looking for some good crits, so fire away!

@Claire Coullon Any thoughts on this? I would very much value your input!
Hey Danielle, sorry for the late reply – just seeing this now. This has a beautifully distinctive style and it's definitely warmer and more elegant than the previous direction.
I'm not sure how much you need the little holes on the 'e' and 'g'. I imagine they'll be quite problematic in use (since being quite small, they'll likely disappear as soon as it's scaled down) and I think the glasses would be evident without.
I like the open arch on the 'n', it's a great update from the bottom version and it fits nicely with the 'a'. I'd definitely keep the similar idea in the 'g', but I think the bowl could be closed up a little more because at the minute, it could be confused with a 'y' (I know the idea is to emphasise the glasses, but I think the 'e-g' connection makes them sufficiently evident).
I love the shape of the 'k', especially the tail and the little rounded terminal – great touch! The vertical stem feels too heavy though, especially compared to the ones on 'n' and 'a' which are much thinner (maybe thickening them up too would help reach a good balance).
I hope that some of that is helpful and that you don't mind the ridiculously long comment!
@Claire- Thank you! This means so much coming from you. I'm thrilled with all your thoughts and will implement them soon. As for the "g", it is in fact a "y", which tells me I should open it up a little more. Thanks again for the input and for the follow- I'll post an update soon!

Armed with a few key changes to stem and leg thicknesses and a more masculine wash of color, this is ready for the client. Any last changes?

Oh yeah of course for the 'y' – sorry I got mixed up when commenting! But yes either way, the point still holds, haha. About to have a look at the update now, will write properly there.
