Can you tell us a bit more about it? What made you go with these splats and textures? Not sure it would be very readable at small sizes as there is so much detail going on.

It's what I think of when I think of the word 'fuse' So I wanted to get a rough, messy kind of thing going on.
Any suggestions?

The aged/grunge/worn thing can still work, but it needs to have a bit some of a spark to it to make it go POW!

That has obviously been done digitally, no offense meant just a comment, to make that sort of style really pop you need to get dirty. Prints, scans, photocopies, real ink, spray....

I still do that style a bit and it has moved on loads and you need to make every piece as non-digital as possible.

give it some random injection of colour into it :) that would be my suggestion :)

So what can i do to give it some flavour? I can see what you mean. It's still too bland.
Think back to how you started....just some text yeah? Print it out a few times, black text on white back, then white on black (big black square around white text).

Then just make a mess. Pens, ink, pencils, paint, tippex, tape...anything.

Then scan it back in and work from there. Quite often I will end up making a hybrid of two or three.

By doing it this way, you make something that is unique and more importantly looks like you have brought your own stamp to it.

sorry, don't like it, think the latest version is hard to read.

And I think of the image below when someone says fuse, so you could say it's more electrical related
