    Hi all,

    In all the years I've been a member, I don't think I have ever posted up anything for crit, so here we are.

    I'd like your thoughts mainly on the letter mark itself. I won't give too much of a back story so not to influence your critique, but I was inspired by the reverse pilcrow.

    Thank you.

    Really like it, the g is slick.

    Watch the top join at A and P - it's very thin, and printing litho that could break up at smaller sizes.

    Honestly the left slant of the A is throwing it off to me and I really don't like the choice of font for the 'anauel publishing' underneath it.
    Seems to have some different tones on the main logo too.
    I'm going to take a stab here and say they do maritime maps or similar because it seems like you've tried to incorporate a sail and a cartography compass.

    I'm with Levi. Not keen on the A lifting its leg and I don't think that font will work at very small sizes.
    I think the A and P are a bit fussy - couldn't the P flourish turn into the cross of the A?

    Yeh, the way it seems to curve off in "publishing"...

    Ah I see, I thought you were mistaking the P for a G haha I was getting a bit worried

    I like the tilted A - it's a bit of fun, it's still legible. It's nice.
