I have been reading all the thread before, and there is no brief, no research, no brainstorming and no sketching.
A brief is not saying what you want, but what you represent and what you are. @isaiahgirard asked what you wanted and created it but this is not the right process. This means there haven’t been research nor brainstorming. What we have right now could have been bought on a stock image website directly: https://www.google.com/search?q=heart+shape+earth+illustration. I must insist, it is not a logo but an illustration.
Logo design is one of the most complicated job in graphic design and it shouldn’t be done like that. We are going against all conventions and good practices here. @Eleanor correctly told it at the beginning of the process. There is no source that would validate this kind of design or process, when I showed it to my colleagues or friends no one found it correctly created. And I’m not speaking about beauty, but good practices.
I’ve tried my best here with source, proof and links, so if this is the path you decide to follow I’ll have to step down from this thread as I can’t approve it, and I’ll concentrate on other parts of the website (no bad feelings though!)
PD: I just found this little gem, have you seen how simple, memorable, timeless, versatile and appropriate it is? (and classy, elegant, modern, beautiful) https://dribbble.com/shots/5442210-Project-Earth
