Hey guys, I have been trying to build a new logo, but am not having much luck! I may have to end up outsourcing this, but I am trying not to. I only came up with this one so far:

And here is my current (old) logo:

I like my current one but thought it was a little too generic, since the font used is such a popluar font. I was looking for something a little more custom, and more of an actual logo rather than just text. What do you guys think?

I like your new one but for the "y" like kathy mentioned and it is too crowded, you need more room at either end.

I vote for the new one. Easier to read and in my opinion has more of a professional designer look to it. Good job...I'd stick with the new one.

I actually like them both. The y does need a little tweak on the new design.

Thanks for the input guys. That is just how the Y looks with that font, weird huh...maybe I will try another font for that part of the logo. And yes normally there is more room on both sides, I just threw this up quickly so you could get an idea.

I like the first one too...Everyone is going for initials..even our mall is now EWM...dahhh and our city is COW...ahahahha THAT one is crazy..but, I put it on all my utility payments..

OK>.and of course the Y, but maybe...a different font altogether? plain and a bit wider? maybe?

The first is definately the better of the two. I agree with the others about the Y though. Also the "dr" in the circle is messin with me. I like the idea a lot but something about it seems off. Maybe because the r touches but the bottom of the d does not? Not quite sure what it is, it just doesn't quite jive to me. Nice work though, I think you are on the right track and no need to outsource. Just keep tweakin a little

I think that the d looks a bit like a g in the top one.

It's always hard to make a logo for yourself, easier to do it for others. I design logotypes and mine is the one that looks the worse. Talk about not doing what you preach. :D

I think #1 has the most potential, but I'm not too found of the fonts you've chosen for your name and that italic "y" is not doing anything for me.

The new logo is nice , simple, and artistic. The colors, font and reflections show professionalism and art.
