    Hello CSS-Tricks,

    I am in the process of creating a logo for my start-up Web Solutions company, I am eager to hear your insight after recently watching Chris answer forum posts on a video!

    My advice is to go simpler, much simpler.

    Take a look at sites like Dribbble, Behance, and LogoPond to get some creative ideas.

    I agree with @siouxfan45, a lot going on there. I’m also not a huge fan of the font choice through I’m certain there are other people on this forum who can comment more on that than I could.

    No. Clean slate.

    Thank you for the responses, I appreciate the feedback!

    Back to the drawing board…

    Day & Night could be great as an image: half sun / half moon. “Web solutions” is not needed in the logo itself, it should be in the title of the site, perhaps. Good luck!

    Updated the logo, link [here…](https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B4mUr36JlhZXOUQtaWM4cWJ4bzA/edit?usp=sharing “here”)

    Font is not final

    Idea for font, simple yet professional.

    I wouldn’t use a gradient.

    I think the concept is pretty good, just needs a lot more more. Simplify.

    I agree with everyone else. Reduce it down to the least possible number of elements; simplify and condense.

    I’m not a fan of any of the font choices so far, but I’m horrendously picky about fonts and don’t like many, anyway, so take that with a grain of salt. @chrisburton seems to be the resident typography expert, maybe if he sees this he’ll chime in.

    color3 and color 4 are my simplest ones.

    Thanks for tagging me @JoshBlackwood.

    @rkhayat I was thinking a logo more along the lines of the following that I quickly created in Illustrator: http://cloud.chrisburton.me/Oq4L

    Hope this gives you some ideas. Good luck.

    That is brilliant, that logo gives me a different perspective on the design, thank you Chris.

    I played around with a business card and came up with this, but I will recreate it using some new inspirations.
