This is a logo for a web developer of responsive websites. He was thinking about using square brackets (as he is a programmer) or using his initial of his first name "h". He is also wanting advice on whether to use use his name or is it better to use a company name. He will be working on his own and would like to work with small businesses. Thanks. enter image description here

    wether to use use his name or a company name - this is definitely off-topic here as it's up to him to decide that and everyone will have a different opinion. On the logo question, please check the guidelines for critique questions and edit your question to add the missing details and make it answerable. – Luciano Nov 11 '19 at 9:54

    I'm not sure if it's about the colors, but something in this screams to me of politics – curious Nov 11 '19 at 15:46

This question is really subjective, but for what it's worth, here are my opinions . . .

  • I think the logos are too busy, and need to be simplified somewhat
  • The colours are a rather garish/in-your-face. The bottom one is more subdued though
  • The whole look is quite angular/boxy, giving a kind of construction industry feel. I'm thinking plumber, metal fabricator, brick layer, floor tile manufacturer, architect, etc. This may or may not be desirable.
  • The word "WEB" is so small and condensed that it will virtually be unreadable at smaller sizes, even more so since it's also rotated vertically.

Note: These are just my opinions, so feel free to ignore them totally.

As for using one's name or a company name, I think that's up to your client. I wouldn't be happy giving advice on this - since there may be legal implications depending on the jurisdiction.
