Well, that's no fun!



Here's what I was thinking:



It plays on the classic Fender "Stratocaster" script and lends itself easily to business cards, letterhead, etc.

It's also, you know, precise.


This is almost there. If you could just add an explosion or a good car chase, it would be perfect.

These are the 2 I'm going with. One for flyers, one for digital.

I'm curious as to why you chose to capitalize the P & S?

The design choices I made were in keeping with a variety mid-century modern logos from Fender's golden era, and of course, these in particular:





Also, this:

I'm a fan of negative space and contrast. I also like emphasis. that and I was going to be an English major...it's a title, it needs to be capitalized.

Fair enough...there was a time when I shared a similar perspective.

However, I've grown fond of this aesthetic in my old age.



My thoughts are that the text is already all caps, so the height differential is redundant.

In any case, there really is no "right answer", I'm just interested in the process.

Here's a logo that uses all caps with raised first letters...I'm thinking it's OK:

Redid my business cards as I'm almost out of the first run.
First ones had the background and while easy enough to read, were distracting.
Decided to finally listen and stick with the KISS method, and kept it simple.
