    I am a web designer / front end developer and I am currently doing a re brand for myself. I have come up with a couple of options and would love to get some feedback on what works best or possible improvements?

    Thanks in advance.

    Second one. It's cleaner and has a better footprint. The first has a bit too much going on with the overlaid shape.

    2nd one.

    Think about the colours you're using. You have a blue, another blue, and a black, in those there triangles.

    That's 3 colours. Then the grey text, this makes 4 colours.

    If this had to be printed on to a pen, 4 colours would be very expensive. (or an umbrella)

    Definitely the second one.

    Prefer the simplicity of 1. Des 2 the 'W' is over complicated to me…doesn't say anything about the business? If you take the cross bar
    off the first part you get a clearer W plus - tenuously its 2 ticks…one for 'design & one for 'development' Yes, cliched.... Yes, I've too much time on my
    hands…someone give me some work…ooohh…Tipping Point….

    Thanks @bonsdes. the 'w' very loosely can be broken into two parts with the first part being a J and the two parts together being the W. This is not meant to be instantly clear or anything just a subtlety that maybe some people pick up on.

    @hankscorpio Im not too concerned with print costs right now just what visually works best. It will most likely be used in digital format anyway.

    Ok John..I see what you're saying…poor old 'D' will be feeling left out then! :)

    Yes, and I hear that on a daily basis. No problem for digital. Your format is easy enough to strip back to 1, 2 or 3 colours anyway. Always good to keep future print costs in mind.

    All I can say is I seem to be seeing that 'stylised' W from the second design from the first post popping up everywhere at the moment. Same goes for the double tick version.

    I agree the second one is better - and the W looks a little overworked - What @bondes said could work!
