So I was asked to create a Fund logo to raise money for a new school in the Seaside/Alys Beach area. This is what came of it. The building on top is called a buttery, its one of town's recognizable features. Feedback & comments most welcome and appreciated as always. Love to know how to make this better. Hope y'all all have a blessed day!

Hey big fella! Maybe just 3 little things: a) lose the birds, b) lose that angled line on the side of the cover of the book (top) c) round the entrance arches a bit more, even though they might not be that rounded in real. Just my opinion, of course :)
Nice work man, I would play with those arches a bit too. Love the dimensionality to it tho.
@Alen Type08 Pavlovic Thx for the feedback - def can round the arches more - and possibly drop the line to make for a cleaner look - good ideas bro.
@Jordan Mahaffey thx yo!
This looks great Mike! Love the use of white space, color selection, and what Alen said. Keep up the great work man, always love seeing your designs.
Great Work Buddy
Really great man. I could probably go without the birds. I love your use of negative space and colors. Nice work!
@Eric Stanley @Ced Funches @Jeremiah Wingett Many thanks bros!
Looking great Mike. Nice tonal balance / use of the negative space.
Solid suggestions by @Alen > Tried roughing it out with 2 tones, with a couple minor reductions to see if it would work LINK. Again, definitely a fan of the color / tonal relationship. Just wanted to see how it would play in B/W.
@Michael Spitz digin' your version bro - i think dropping the book paper section is smart, basically simplifying that whole section. Also making the contrast sharper. Thanks for the feedback bro!
So is the left entry throwing anybody off - The building is actually a 4 columns with an open air center....thoughts? See reference - http://30abeachhome.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/10/IMG_08621.jpg
No confusion on this end.
Cool wasn't sure if it was reading correctly or not...lol!
Agree with @Alen Type08 Pavlovic . Otherwise, really nice!
Digging this. Nice job Mike.
Nice work Mike! Feels so serene!
great work as usual! you rocks!
Agree with all the above, the simplified version of Michael is very helpful (personally I would always create first in B&W, it helps you focus). I like the discussions how to improve. Mike love what you did, curious now about the final :-)
Really nice logo. I would remove only the birds.
@Marco Wilbrink agreed on designing in B&W - did that in fact, But def need to go back and tweak some more. His version we dope and helpful fo sho. Thx for the feedback bro!
@Andrea Cau I gotta ask what is it with the birds that has everyone wanting them dropped so I dont make that mistake in future revisions etc? Curious if its just not needed, distracting or what? thoughts? thx for the feedback too!
@Gary Chew @Matt Redway @Kevin Burr @Roberto Ortiz Many thx y'all!! 'Preciate it!
Personally I think the birds distract, your eyes are first drawn to the building than to the left to the birds, leaving them out your eyes rest only on the building. As it is intended as a logo remember when you downsize it, the birds will disappear anyway; less is more, daring to leave things out is an art to conquer. The quote of Antoine De Saint-Exupery (1900 - 1944) summarizes it best: "A designer knows he has achieved perfection not when there is nothing left to add, but when there is nothing left to take away". Keep up the good work!
@Marco Wilbrink Great feedback exactly what I wanted to know - & what a rad quote!! Many thx bro!!
Pleasure Mike, I am happy to receive any feedback as well! ;-)
@Mike I think that the logo can live without the birds too. In this case the birds are too much small so it better if you remove them by the work.
