I would flip the one fading line.  Looks like the forces are fighting each other.  Looks nice.

Hmm that's a good observation, the starting point was 3 S's stacked and he ran from that. I'll speak to the graphics designer and get a test with a flipped line and see.

Perhaps something like this?

New logo!



What do you think?

As someone who deals with logos and branding daily please take heed that my comments are not meant to offend, just to point out what I see as the glaringly obvious.

I can see the 3 Esses & it ties in with your text/entity name. Nice.

I like fdlsys 3 arrows better than the original tapered lines which were opposing one another.

However - It looks like an amateur drew a Bitmap in MS Paint. One can clearly see where the straight line & curves meet - no curved lines, just jagged pixels. Looks very unprofessional.

If you want the number of the graphic artist we use drop me a PM. To redraw this logo properly & provide you with both vector .pdf for printing/branding & 3 different size .jpg images for email signature/web/forum etc. the cost would be in the region of R700 ex VAT & he'd give you the Pantones for printing purposes as well.

Also remember for branding purposes that shading is a PITA. Can only use solid colours for screen prints (unless you're prepared to shell out for a CMYK print), all pad prints, laser engraving & embroidery (those 4 being the most common & popular branding methods.

Digital print will do shades no problem - Digital transfer, dome stickers, vinyl stickers, Direct to product & heat press (anyone who still uses heat press should be shot in any case).

Sorry gents but the arrows are not going to happen. specifically banned the use of any arrows right from the start. Too cliche  for a transport company.

100's, I'm sure if I get to the point of making branded baseball caps the logo will have changed ;)

The only things I'm likely to print in the near/medium future will be business cards and flyers, even that's unlikely.

But to get back to serious business:

USD AVAILABLE

I have $780 available, only advertising this here on avforums as you guys are aware of how it works. First come first served, but combined with the stronger rand at the moment the costs may be quite a bit lower. Max single purchase I can do is $500 though.
