Thanks for the honest answers! Appreciate it! Wings are part of previous logo that I was asked to keep. Maybe an emotional attachment? Other directors love it. However I can see where your coming from. So I will try again and try and persuade! Think major issue is that company has changed name and elements don't work anymore! Would love to ditch wings completly.
Why not make the silhouette an actual tool, a spanner or something maybe. Cogs as a think bubble?
Try a different font too as an alternative, something a bit rounded and friendlier?
I think you need to include an explanation of what the company does underneath.
