So its been a while - staying stupid busy with work, kids, and freelance! Hope everybody has been doing well & is being blessed!
With that said could use some solid feedback on this rough draft. So many kinks to get out but looking for thoughts & comments from my peers on how to make this the best it can be. Anyway many thanks in advance for anything you might share. Cant wait to put the feedback to this piece. And the ribbon is just for placement right now - I have not even started to work on it yet. Also nibs or no nibs on the smaller letters?Early stages people - let me have it!! Word.

It looks so good man...
WOW WOW WOW! Incredibly tasteful!
Really nice man... I was about to say about the ribbon not really fitting and needing colouring, but you've already mentioned yourself that it's just there for placement.
Sweet! Love how the ampersand! I kinda wanna see a closeup of that, too
Really love the type! Looks solid - Maybe play around with the ribbon. Might look nice having it going thru A and go to the other side? Love your style
So much personality, love it.
My eye is drawn to the two big swirls on the L and A where they interact with each other. I think that is actually too strong and forces that area to be the centerpiece of the design. This is partially because they are the largest areas of black, and because they almost look like they are moving with each other like a dance. There's a lot of beauty in the rest of the design but I think it gets overpowered by that one area. For example, that ampersand is so killer but it kind of gets lost. I actually read this as "Lion Anvil" at first. Maybe make the ampersand more prominent and downplay the large swirls on the L and A.
Also, I love that V!
I really like the nibs on the smaller letters. And it is a bit heavy to the left side overall, but I'm sure that will balance out once you incorporate the ribbon. Would there be text on the ribbon at all or would it just be a blank ribbon? Really great work Mike.
Maybe connect the A and the V.... I dunno I'm just throwing s#1t out there lol. Good to see you back though! Was wondering where you been mike.
the A and V are both damn sexy. id like to see it with the banner complete because i think thats going to balance out the composition and not make it so dominated by the L and A.
no one does banners better than you Mike, and ill fight to the death on that! lol
Damn, this is all kinds of awesome!
I agree with @Brandon Moore about the banner, looking foreword to the completed piece.
Thanks for all the great feedback so far. Time to get to work to implement some of these great suggestions for improvement! Will be posting more soon.
@Steve Lowtwait Thx bro - love the "V" as well bro - agree on the "L" A" ends being a bit much so I will see how I can rework this. Also good call on bringing the "&" out a bit more - possibly even making the spacing between words a bit more.
@Kevin Hamil Yeah man that banner is gonna bring a better balance to the overall piece and will contain the tagline for the company. So yeah look for that to come.
@Mark Jooste - Brotha is good to be back! lol! Busy Busy - Have a lot of new things to upload this month!! Keep an eye out.
@Brandon Moore & @Adam Walsh - 'Preciate y'all bros! too kind...
Sick! I would adjust the kerning between L & i
This is great man. Sexy as hell
Bro Mike! Again what a stellar piece!
It's great to see you back, this is looking really good so far. Some excellent suggestions too, especially about emphasising the ampersand a little more (it has a wonderful shape, would be a shame not to!).
The only other thing I'd add that I don't think has been mentioned is the 'I-O' kerning (and to a lesser extent 'O-N') feels too tight compared to 'Anvil' as a whole. Love your thoughts so far on the banner positioning, looking forward to seeing the progression!
@Claire Coullon Thanks so much!! Agreed on the kerning & Ampersand - will get on that!
I think everyone has pretty much said it by now. It looks pretty solid man. Diggin' that ampersand.
Yes to the nibs on the smaller letters! Looking good!
@Dennis Salvatier & @Diane Faye Zerr Thx so much y'all!!
Wowsa. Solid work man!
