I have spent time today to make my self my own custom logo. I wanted to give myself something that incorporated who I am as person, and my roots. So I incorporated my name, and gave the Chinese flag stars on King Kong for a very readable and simplistic logo. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. Thanks

It's a good start, here's some things I would try:

  • Add a wordmark or at least an acronym of your name somewhere on here. Lots of personal logos have one of those on them.
  • Make the King Kong silhouette more defined and simple. Simplicity makes logos look cleaner and sleek.
  • Stylize the stars, and change their positiong up a bit. Just copy-pasting them off of the flag looks sloppy and unprofessional.

Not saying you have to do these, They're just suggestions. I'm also not trying to be harsh, You have a good idea, but it can be even better.

Judging by the rest of your threads this is definitely not the case.

My feedback, I like it except one thing is messing with my mind, not sure if it would ruin the logo to fix this but here's what I see...

 

I read the stars as being on the gorilla's chest but they're very much "in front" of him as if he's standing behind a glass door that has the stars on them. Could you angle the stars as if they were actually on the gorilla's chest? And since he's standing at an angle you'd see the stars perspective diminishing towards his left arm? Basically I don't like how the gorilla is standing at an angle while the stars on a flat plane in front. 

 

Hope I explained that right.

So your "personal logo" is a couple pieces of clip art with partially-transparent generic text slapped over the top of it?

C'mon, man.  Make an effort at least.

It helps if you view his posts as performance art.
