Idea for personal logo uplift, derived from the logo I've been using for myself for a few years but with more simplicity and added versatility. Examples of how it can be used as a "container" are shown here as well.
Very clean and simple logo that don't need to have too much detail to carry out the wanted design! I like that it is a Hexagon ,but it also has a quote bubble look. You've done well and congrats on daily deviation Ryan!
In all honesty, it's not too bad. But the main thing it has going for it is the interaction between the leg of the R and the bottom tip of the speech bubble. I think there is still room for improvement/experimentation. After looking at it for a little longer, I realized it has a nice soft cube dimension to it as well. Not just a flat diamond-shaped speech bubble.
Perhaps you can accentuate the 3D Cube a bit more by angling the R on the right side/plane of the "cube"? And then the left horizontal line of the R can flow with the angle of the left side/plane? Though this may affect the angle of the R's leg, and therefore the speech bubble bottom tip may need to be adjusted accordingly. Not sure.
I think it looks pretty powerful and tasty, however I can't ignore my association with a heart scanner going flatline or a financial line chart going downhill at the end. I also feel like there's too much going on on the right side. I think it's very clever how the leg of 'R' flows into the cone of the text balloon though.
I'm curious though why this text balloon seems to be so important to you.
