Requesting opinions on revised logos. Group of first designs can be seen here
These newly revised logos have a few key characteristics. The first logo on the top left has a blunter E compared to all the other logos. I don't care too much for the blunt E which is why the rest of them have a softer swath on the E. What are your thoughts?
Do you prefer the ce to have a gold background with white letters or a white background with gold letters?
I orignally lined up the text Engraving to fall under the l in Classic. I also tried lining the E in Engraving slightly off of the C in Classic (see #5). Which do you prefer?
Do you like the curl on the e to be more curly or less curly?
The final logo on the bottom left is more simplified and if you notice the circle around the ce is open to form both a 'c' and an 'e'. Do you like this idea? Is it too plain or simplifed enough to be recognizable?
Overall what is your favorite logo? Why?
Any other comments / suggestions are much appreciated!
