Blueprint logo

Hey, i'm working on a logo for a youthgroup called Blueprint. This is my latest idea, simply a B cut into the ground with a hidden P. The only criteria was to make it stamped. Just looking for any input or critique,

thanks

without more actual information on the organization it's hard to really give you input. Though I do like it. But for a youthgroup I think it may be a little to conservative without knowing more about the actual org.

I didn't really get the "cut into the ground" part until after I read your description. I wonder if there's a better way to render that depth.

Good point, I was thinking with the less conservative the posters/flyers etc it'd go one, it would stand out and be recognisable. Also i didn't want to take a patronising hip youth angle with it as they are 14-18year olds. But i'm just a student so please correct me if i'm wrong

I added a ledge around the bottom of the B, does that help. Can't really think of any other ways than a gradient or maybe white lines being triangles, any ideas?

You could add wider counters:

just tried thickening, it doesn't look bad but I think the idea of the white lines being the corners of the indent is lost.

WHat do you guys think of the ledge along the bottom?

also how do you upload the images to you post? i can only get them to work up top

> a B cut into the ground with a hidden P

I'm not seeing this. Do you mean something like this?

I think the first one is the better looking.
I agree with Tomi: you can just drop the (albeit clever, but not so discernible) "cut in the ground" idea, and go for a visually pleasing shape instead.
