I'm creating my own avatar with letters V and K. Now, I like the idea that I have used but I'm finding it difficult to "balance" the logo. Please see image. Left part is for V and right part is for K. (See explanation on right in image: Yellow colored area is for V, Red is to represent K)
The 1st design has equal widths for both shapes (x units), so mathematically seems fine, but I find the K part is little "heavy / thick" as compared to V.
I tried to fix it by slightly decreasing the width (x-1 units) and now it seems "balanced" (at least to me) as widths "seem" equal.
I'm really confused which design is better.
Which design is aesthetically looks better? Is it okay to break such a rule (by decreasing widths) to balance something and make it look aesthetically better?
