Hey /gd/ I asked a friend of mine who studies graphic design to design me a logo for use across business cards, websites, watermarks etc and this is what he came up with. I'm a photographer so he incorporated an aperture in the logo, its an R since my name is Rory.
Since we're both relatively new to this world we're looking for some critical advice or feedback. What would you guys do differently? It doesn't look quite right to me.
I think it's workable. Helps not to overthink these kinds of things. If I had to refine it, I would make the hexagonal aperture sections rounded to the R letter form. It begins to get lost there I think, and play around with the angles on the aperture elements. There's too much motion in the shape, if that makes sense?
