One of the totally different directions I've been thinking about for the 'B/D'. Started out with some speech bubbles and ended up with this guy...

This is getting interesting. Could the red/green shapes be literal speech bubbles? I like this.
I think 3D glasses, but then the colors aren't blue and red. (just thinking out loud here)
I like that the colors aren't straight blue and red. Nice one!
if the company is related, well made.
not classy enough like previous one,but as Juan said above if co
ompany related than could work rather nicely
@Dustin - Thanks a lot my man! The 'speech bubble' idea is something I could obviously push a bit further, and I'm exploring it...
@Able - Red-green is actually an older style of 3D anaglyph glasses... In more recent versions the green is usually replaced with more of a blue / cyan color instead. These could obviously be tweaked, but I was thinking a slightly off color might be a more recognizable approach. (I.E. I wouldn't want it to be too easily confused with a 3D glasses icon per say...)
@Nathan - You get where I'm going with it... ;) Cheers buddy!
@Juan - Their work is primarily (web / app design & development) so no 3D film production per say... But with this project I'm essentially trying to conceptually map out ideas of 'digital vision' & communication > obviously along with some more classic typography based variations, etc.
@Namanja - Yeah, classy is indeed a strong selling point...but a simple conceptual connection can also go a long way ;) Not sue if this one is 100% there yet...but it's just rough idea.
@Michael, just a thought love the glasses direction, you could do the glasses and speech bubbles by vertically flipping the glasses.
@Stan - Makes perfect sense > however you would lose that 'b/d' connection in the process. If we do go straight iconic vs typographic > indeed that might be just the ticket for a clear read on the bubbles...
The b/d in this is brilliant, Michael. Well done.
@Riley - Thanks a bunch! :)
This is great, if you still want to play with the bubbles think of turning the bubbles into glasses not the glasses into bubbles.
Maybe this help, I don't know.
This is looking good
@Herson - Thanks a lot my man! Bubbles to glasses was my process in fact...but I may have tweaked them a bit too much in order to fit the silhouette of the glasses? I've got a couple other version going, so I'll try to separate the elements a bit more this time...
P.S. Digging the new avatar ;)
@Ivan - Cheers! :)
Great take on these glasses! Loving it.
Ha, very clever. Love it.
Definetly @Michael, this is great work.
Glad you like the new avatar.
@Blake / Jacob - Cheers guys! :)
NICE as always dude! Looks soooo good!
Hey, buddy! Nice stuff!
@Dann - Thanks a lot my man! Much appreciated! :)
@Sean - Hey buddy! Great to see you & thanks a lot! :)

Another step in the speech bubble direction... Still considering some options for the glasses > but this one's a bit more straight forward.

These are seriously some of the coolest 3D glasses that I have seen. The illlustration style is immaculate. Great work Michael. inspiring as always. I really like how the white comes down into the lens's. Rad.
@Charles - Thanks a lot! :)
Speech bubbled 'bd' glasses.
