    Hey Guys!

    So, not only have we been working on some really cool client projects at Collective Ray, but we've been cooking up some stuff of our own!

    @Jeff Broderick has been building the backend for Protos, I've been working on this marketing page. So far I've come up with a mark and layout for the initial sign-up screen. I know it's not much—under the circumstances, I've gotta keep this a bit secret for now—but what do you guys think?

    I'll post more as I can. I'm using Motel Gothic for the mark and Eames for the headings.

    Trying to switch it up from my normal style and start giving more attention to things I haven't given as much attention to in the past. I'm not worrying as much about layer styles, but more on solid typography, layout, and color pallets. It's a pretty new approach for me, but what're your thoughts on my execution (that you can see from this tiny shot, lol)?

    The serif clashes with the logo, in my opinion.

    Thanks, @Ari. Good feedback—I'm fairly new to pairing type. If that's the general consensus, I'll bring it back to the drawing board. Thanks!!

    I agree, I would go with a sans-serif. Besides that, neat logo :)

    @Brian Benitez I would take a second look on the mark actually, in my opinion the composition of the icon and the typeface is off. What I mean by that is that it looks strange when you have the to P's so close to eachother. Do you really need the P in there? Could it work with "building blocks" as I like to call it, wireframe text? That would make more sense aswell.

    Totally agree. Go for a sans-serif for the top/mark, because that bloody font looks gorgeous from what you can see of it. (The paragraph text).

    Thanks for the feedback, @Anders Drage. It initially bothered me too, here are a few variations I had: http://bntz.cc/IX1m. Do you think any are better than the one I went with?

    Thanks, @James ✌. Yeah, I love it. No web version, though—may have to go back to the drawing board. Or use it anyway. Hah.

    @Brian Benitez I cant see the variations, file not found :)

    Anyways - send them an email and check it out. At work we are the first using Neutraface online now, so they are working on converting their fonts for use at web. It's costly though ;)

    Yep, mark could use some love. It's also odd to see the same P twice, side by side in different sizes.

    Can't wait to see/use this.

    The problem people're having with the serifs might be the really large terminals and contrasting shapes on that typeface in particular. I think serifs could work, but not one like this.

    I agree that serifs could work. Personally I'd go with a Slab Serif.

    Great work though. Keep it up!
