    It's rather bulky but I'm not sure how you plan to integrate it into your Web site. Other than that, it looks great.

    `it doesn't look quite clean (with the beveled and shadow)
    `I wouldn't associate it with a top-quality service, since they couldn't get a nice clean crisp professional looking logo.

    that's what I think, don't take it to offense, i know what i said might offend you; but it is just how it seems to me.

    Well it is going to be the header for my blog. Here is how it looks on the actual site:

    http://freebbt.blogspot.com/

    I'm glad you like it. :)
    Edit:
    Don't worry about offending me, that is what I am looking for constructive criticism.

    Any advice on how to change it to make it more like it belongs to a "top-quality service"?

    well I just did a google search for logo ideas
    and I found this nifty site: http://logofury.com/

    basically what I look for when I look at a company is how good their logo and/or website is. That usually gives me a sense of their service.

    In a logo, I look for clean lines, crisp design, innovative ideas, and up to date "tactics"

    Just a constructive critic: the image looks cool, but the letters don't.

    Ya I was thinking the same thing.

    I am gonna redo the lettering, but I am not sure how to do it...

    Maybe something like:

    Or? Any advice?
    Edit:
    OK here is an updated version:

    Better? Worse?

    The white on white causes it not to work on this site. Click here: http://FreeBBT.blogspot.com to see how it actually looks.

    There good, i think the first one is on the big side and the second one is still a bit big and you cant realy see the logo well in the cell phone.

    I'd lose the glow on the icons if it were me. Makes it look out of focus. Also, work on your image at least twice the size it's going to be & then resize it down as the last thing you do....hides mistakes & your end image is sharper.

    I agree - and for the text - I do like the black stroke - but take it down to 1px - and maybe give it a drop shadow to give it some depth.

    When I was working on it it was over 10,000 pixels and then I resized it down to 700.

    But I'll try it without the glow.
    Edit:
    Thx I'll try that.

    A little extreme, but the image should be sharp then. Must be the glow.

    i think that the logo is very good, but i would eliminate 20% of the little icons, as it makes it look a little like a rainbow.

    I like it. If I were to do anything to it now, it would be the drop-shadow under the wording. It's a little dark and sharp, so I'd seriously blur it and use transparency on the layer until it looks 'right'. Also, I'd move the shadow left a bit.

    But that's just tweaking the tweaks. It's fine as it is.

    Cool, simple and the message of that illustrates the logo speaks for itself. The Text for Blackberry is quite too strong and it has no contrast. You put too much shadows and the beveled is too sharp try to adjust it and make it more smooth. Its just my suggestion as a fellow graphic designer.
