Thoughts on this logo


New Member
This is a logo I have designed for personal branding for a Computer Scientist:

It was the intention to simply use the initials O and S and to have a square ratio so that it would work best for icons, profile pictures etc.
Please could you let me know your first impressions of this?

Many Thanks

The name underneath needs it's kerning looked at and they're not 'balanced' on the left and right either.

I don't personally like the chopped off letters or the red border. It also loses detail when you shrink it down.

Further to what Levi said, I think you need to spend a bit more time working on the letters, neither is particularly clear. There are quite a few options
with O and S. Get a pencil and paper and scribble as many ideas as you can think of. If you're struggling, just Google 'OS logo' for a bit of inspiration.

As he works in computers, OS may not be the best thing to choose as a logo, so maybe have a look at just having a name style?
