CLHB got here before me but the bottom bit was putting me off too, especially the difference in weight to the foundations and the root thingies although I would have kept the 'underground' bit and just lost the roots
... also not sure the perspective of the windows in the roof is quite right. I think what is really bothering me is the almost simplistic shapes of the house compared to quite dramatic rips etc. this is probably intentional to emphasize the ripped up effect but it's just annoying me lol .... don't take it personally, it's all subjective
I just think its too overworked for a logo with the 'underground thing.' You already have windows, a front door, a cross on the roof, attic windows... All your missing is a chimney and a back garden. Sorry I don't mean to be rude, I just think it needs to be dumbed down and with the 'underground' it is just going too far. The more you work into this, is the less it will look like a logo. Any more and it will just look like a drawing next to some text. Again, I apologise, I know how difficult these things are and I really like your ideas, it just needs a final tweak for it to be complete.
Okay I have taken all your critique on board, and I have decided to present the logo in 4 versions which can be used however the publisher wants. I have the OTT illustration, which is free of text. One which is sans underground and a version of that small recommended by CLHB. I also have a version which underground sans roots as spotty recommended.
I have also tidied up the edges and flipped the top windows to be blocks rather then lines.
I like the underground bit but think the whole (the original draft, that is) is a bit tall and thin; I'd try putting 'HOUSE OF NOD' and 'FINE PUBLICATIONS' in arcs above and below to frame the whole in a circle.
No designer in the history of the industry has managed to please everyone. Don't take it personally. As long as you like it, and more importantly your client likes it, you've done the job asked of you.
You only have to look through the current Los Logos book to realise anything is possible in logo design and that there are way more complicated logos in use than this one - I think for the 'genre' market you're targeting here it's entirely appropriate. Good stuff.
