Wow, thanks! Wasn’t expecting so much feedback, and so quickly too; you guys are awesome!

@Motionreactor – I’m going to play around with the type alignment, like you suggested. The fi is there because I have an interest in typography and like the shape of the ligature – and my nickname has been Fi for years (short for Fiona!)

@Raincutter & stefusilviu – you’re right, next step is colour. The way I always work is to make the logo work in 1 colour to get the overall composition right, then add colour.

Thanks again everyone!

This is the way everyone should design logos!

I was always taught that if your logo isn’t recognisable in plain black, then it isn’t a logo at all.

That is the right way indeed. :)
