    Maybe the company doubles as a kinky heavy metal S&M dungeon for swingers at night.

    “ The logo looks nice - but I think we need more sharp things coming off the letters- like more serifs” kinda like cowbell.
    Hope they don’t ask for small 2x4 decals in cut vinyl

    What's wrong with it? It's perfect for a Danish Death Metal band.

    It was inspired by his favorite stripper's tattoos.

    I thought you were above this kind of work? What happened to not putting your name on this kinda stuff? What about the "love of the craft"?

    Looks like Toad is lettering Charon's ferry, which crosses the River Styx. Make sure you get a deposit.

    Yes, it's called a "Complexity Fee." "Sorry sir, your logo has a lot of nooks, crannies, and holes. Will need to spend extra time weeding."

    Way to inject negativity and go off topic with a personal attack into an otherwise benign and unexpectedly humorous thread. It's a freaking trucking company with a supplied logo. We're doing our best to clean up their supplied logo.

    FYI, we gave it the college try to have them let us redesign the logo for them and the owner refused to budge.

    If you had the skills and could actually design something of quality, you'd be in a better position to judge how others should run their businesses.

    If this was supposed to be a humorous thread, why wasn't it put into the appropriate category ?? You're always complaining about that stuff................ when others do it.

    Last time I checked, designing skills and quality have nothing in common with running a business.

    I'd say his observation is quite substantiated based on a number of your posts lately. :snarky:
