Been working on an icon for a blog called Bitcrate which focuses on tech/media stuff. First off, what I have so far:
I didn't want to do some rehash of playing off computer 'bits' but thought the motif of the crate actually having been 'bitten'would be interesting-- the two ellipses protruding on the left are meant to be hinges or flaps that you might see on a crate, albeit a little more bent.
So two questions:
1) How would you improve the core image? Do I need to tweak some of the anchor points/handles?
2) To you, is the concept even good or DOA?
