STRAY HELIX Logo - Revisited by DoNotDelete STRAY HELIX Logo - Revisited by DoNotDelete
I decided my early STRAY HELIX™ logo was too fanciful and didn't really embody what the forthcoming manga is going to be all about, so I decided to take the logo back to the drawing board.

Originally I intended for the logo to look more like this - incorporating a DNA helix directly into the design - but I had difficulty making it work, and some of the people who saw my early attempts at the logo complained about not being able to read what it said.

Now I'm a little bit more savvy as a graphic artist/designer, I think I've pulled it off, although now I'm concerned the logo is too basic for it's own good.

I still don't think it scales down very well... so I'll also have to revisit the "Tripupil Eye" Logo to at some point so I can have a scalable logo/branding motif synonymous with the main STRAY HELIX™ logo.

Cool logo, I'd like to see how it does over a picture it represents.

Very sleek and professional, David. While I'm a fan of both logos, this style compliments the name much better than the previous, though I'm confounded by why so many people claim not to see the "Y" or "X", it appears perfectly legible to me.

Thanks for saying you don't have any trouble reading it, though readability concerns are something I've experienced previously when I attempted a logo like this a year or two back.

I had a go at making it more legible anyway - see what you think: [link]

This logo looks pretty good, it has a bigger connection to the name then the previous design, which had a more graffiti tag like feeling, or rather what you would expect to see on the cover rather then as it was pretty detailed. Don't worry about it being too basic, if you need this for 'small' work, lets say watermarking for example, then this is great. But I can see what you mean that it won't scale down that good... but I think you're going in the right direction with this.

I tried making it more readable too, with my most recent submission.

This new logo is more "high-tech" than the older one, although the other wasn't that bad...
Yeah, the "DNA helix" + the straight line is well done! I don't see any error or critic to say. Just that.
