Oooooooooooh! I LOVE IT!!!! :wub:

Seriously, it's kinda washing out on this light blue background. Can you provide a white background for it so we can evaluate it a little better?

I like the idea of using jade, but in all honestly it looks like something you put together using Clip and Word Art in MS Word.

Not saying you did that, or that it's bad, but I know in Word they have that background multi-pointed star available in clip art, and the arched text like that can be done in seconds with word art.

But Chris, you should've seen the ones he made to get to this point.

I stand by my original statements, Joel. It's fine work. Don't let the comments of some Beatles-worshipping megalomaniac stop you.

You make MS Paint look good, my friend, stand proud.

So was I supposed to honestly critique it or not?

Of course not! Joel is fragile, you know that!

It's ... good, Joel. Real....real...good.

a critique is fine, but to say something like this looks like wordart or clipart is a pretty low blow.

but, as they say, beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

This is why I don't comment about people's designs...

I never said it was ugly, I never said I didn't like it.

But if you open up Word, you can do something similar in there in seconds. Blame Microsoft, not me.

If you didn't do this in Word, then that's pretty impressive, but it's not my fault they developed that feature in that program, I simply know that it's available.

There's a lot of green there, and I'm not so sure it hasn't been overdone. I really like the inclusion of jade as a symbolic color, however I'm wondering if the inclusion of some complementary colors rather than the multiple hues of green might give the logo a bit more pop. If you're going to use a starburst for a background, I think you want more pop.

I'd love more pop, I'm thirsty.

because of the pop disscussion...I'm going to the gas station down the street for some refreshment now...

Joel I like it. Its simple and it has POP! Although I never would have guessed the Jade referece...I thought it looked like the dolphins.

To which joel asked me if it looked like it had exploded.

To that I replyed, Exploding Dolphins?

Mmm..diet pepsi...

I quite like it, although I see Chris' point. I think that much more could be done here.

Actually I figured it out, this reminds me of one of those 'POW' or 'BLAM' signs you would get in the 1960s batman.

Also I think add a bit more color to the jade, it looks a bit washed out to me.

I think somebody needs a hug!

But really Joel, the starburst has got to go. I like the wordmark, it's just the damned starburst. I dig your stuff Joel, not in a man-on-man sort of way, I'm talking about your work. It's just that damned starburst stumbling block.

Throw in a spelling error.

Then there'll be absolutely no way your boss will miss the subliminal message that you hate your job. :P

You created the 'jade' feeling very well. It looks like carved jade... well done.

However, there's something about it that isn't sitting well with me...

The up/down perspective has me baffled. I'm looking up at the 35 and the first part of Anniversary, but looking down at the end part. Yet, the left/right perspective remains constant.

It gives the text a twisted appearance. It's actually a bit uncomfortable to look at... Im fixated on the depth & shadows rather than the message itself.
