    Hi Paul, a friendly suggestion, set your logo-type in Gotham and move onto something more communicative, be that material choice, print finish, collateral layout or other graphic assets.

    In my opinion it's really not worth your time drawing out letters like these from scratch when there's so many similar and professional typefaces to choose from. You can use other elements to be creative and communicative.

    @Rich Baird Hi man. Well it which way you look.
    There's enough critical moments in Gotham or some other, which in any case i would not corrected. You know.
    Taking this into account easier for me to do something new.
    After all font not lettering, not logo.

    Other elements of communication are also important. Yes.
    Here it is important not to overestimate one thing. It all depends on the specific situation.

    I agree. K and R are nicely done.

    Don't you dare set that in Gotham! It is damn nice the way it is; love the R, the K, and the A. But please, PLEASE put a space between those names. This trend of setting two names up as one word must be stopped. It makes no sense! "Kirasmith" is certainly an interesting name by itself. But, your title suggests that it's actually "Kira Smith." Two names, with a space in the middle. Don't fuel this vapid trend any longer. Act now. Embrace the space! ok…rant over. Nice letterforms.

    I can't really tell if you did this, but the apex of the top and bottom curves of the "s" should extend a bit below and above the baseline and cap height to make it appear the same size as the rest of the letters. If you DID do this, it still looks a bit too small. It also appears thinner than the rest of the letters. The letter S is the bane of my existence.

    Though I enjoy the "A" I would bring up the crossbar just a hair. It might just be the S throwing the mark off, but to me the "S" and the "A" are the letters that need tweaking. There's some kerning issues I would fix too, especially after tweaks to the letterforms.

    I really love the "K". I've been staring at it so long right now that I'm just seeing a shape...that's a nice shape!

    If you have the time (obviously you did/do) always go for custom type when it's appropriate, it's so much more satisfying when the mark is finally polished to perfection. ^_^

    This looks good man.

    Rich - really?? We're designers, we should design – simply using Gotham is all well and good in it's place but spending time creating something original is absolutely worth investing in if there's time and budget. It's all about coming up with something that's a little bit different or unique and I think this does that.

    Regarding technical critique I'm not the one to offer that but Antonio's comments above make a lot of sense.
