    I am sick of my old logo, and since I'm reworking my whole site (Shovenose - once every three years is OK - once every three weeks is not! ) I thought I'd try to create a new one. I like the idea of using an eye shape as part of the logo, play on words (insite, insight) and so forth.

    What does anyone think of these - any good or should I scrap and star over?

    Unfortunately I agree.

It also flows together with using the Blue on the circle and with the Soul text. Then I added the "Graphic & Web Design" text underneath to add balance since the logo is heavy to the left with the circle.
    I usually make my logos first in Photoshop and then in Illy as well. I find it easy to work PS than Illy.
    That's really nice!

    I do like my old logo, just wanted to update a bit - the new ones do look like cr@p - I think I may just sharpen up the old one, remove the drop shadows etec.

    Or maybe hire someone like you to rethink the whole thing!

    I don't think you have a horrible concept here (referencing the new logo Number 1). I think you started in the right direction but it just needs some changes to make it flow and of course balance out the logo... it is very left heavy. Your text is very unbalanced compared to the icon... there is too much empty space. You always have several (if not infinite) possibilities to altering logos. You could have a bolder text for Digital Insite and even have a thicker Digital font than the Insite font but both need to be bold strong fonts. Keep the light gray in the text but scratch the satin effect you have going on. Almost make your text as if you would a button, fill color in the middle and a little gloss on the outer edge. You could use a slight gradient color from a light blue to a lighter blue on the Digital font to flow with the "eyecon" [] but not too noticeable. Then use the light gray on the Iniste font. Definitely make the icon a little smaller but big enough to stay balanced. This is another direction but you could even use the right portion of the icon to take place of the "D" in Digital if you darkened up the right arc piece to match the text of "IGITAL". I would definitely not use the multicolored blocks in the globe you have going on unless you used pastel colors but overall I would scratch the multicolor and replace it with 1 color but slowly fade the color off (to transparency) but keep the stroke of the globe all the way through.. as if the digital pieces were breaking off, almost as if it were disintegrating. Then I think you could really have something And of course always create several versions... not only a similar concept but a few tweaks to it here and there... but a whole new concept just to give you a lot of variety and maybe open up more possibilities by mixing and matching elements here and there from different concepts.

    Hope this helps

    ... Now that I see it... it almost looks like the Skywarn logo (found here http://skywarn.org/ ) for weather with out the tornado in the middle.
