Website logo, script style. What do you think?

hello, here is a logo for an upcoming website called Design Cheek. I might add a symbol above the wordmark later on. What do you think? Thanks guys.

Scripts with such character don't really need a mark, IMO.

I'm not really the one to give advice (I'm usually the amateur in need of it), but I'd still like to mention a few things here:
First and foremost it doesn't strike me as consistent. Maybe figuring out the skeleton and using a single tool to draw it out before you start finetuning the outlines will be helpful.
Second, I'm having problems recognizing some characters, most notably 'g' and 'k'.

Hi frode frank, thanks for the feedback.

The script is based from my handwriting that I scanned in. Would you be able to point out an example of the inconsistency? I have tried really hard to align everything.
I'm not sure on this point but I am thinking that the illegibility on some letters could also make it unique and more memorable. What do you think? :)

Interesting. I like it.

The "g" looks like "z with an ascender" to me. I think you need to separate "i" and "g". Letter "c" also need some refinement.

Compare the 'd' stem to 'h' and 'k'. Also the bowl on 'd', 'e' and 'c'. The endings on 's' vs 'c'. That said, I like the general feel, and I think you are moving in the right direction.

Much improved as a total script. Definitely heading in a nice direction.

thanks for the feedback guys, it is interesting to read that you guys like this approach, I liked it too... Although responses on a couple of other forums have been negative.
I think I need to experiment with other ideas. I'll post up any updates on the logo. :)

I don't know why, but I'm reading the `ee' as `ec', perhaps because they are too different. Also, the `c' at the start of the word `check' is quite large, and looks a little of place (it reads somehow like `designCheek'). The `d' also connects with the following `e' at a strange angle. Other than that, I like it!
