    I initially read it as "Moal 9" and had to look at your username to figure it out. Looks good, but I'm sure I won't be alone on that.

    Pay a designer. That isn't very easy on the eyes, and is off on just about everything a logo is supposed to contain aesthetically.

    I'm down for scratching it and starting from anew if necessary - can you expand on whats necessary "aesthetically"?

    Spend some time looking at logos of big successful companies and you'll see why they work. Apple, NI, Traktor, Nike. All very simple and recognisable.

    Just realized that my comment comes off a bit harsh, and with no insight, dickish. Look at it like this. If you have to shrink it down, all that stuff in the background isn't going to be legible anyhow. With it at a readable size, it takes away from the actual "logo". It's a bit too busy. The rainbow effect on the left also does not add, but takes away from the main focal point, the logo. In addition to that, it makes the image "right heavy".
    In general, a logo should be simple, clean, and bold. While you want it to look cool to grab attention, you have to keep in mind it is your identity and brand recognition. Keeping that in mind, it has to work across multiple platforms. Ask yourself some of these things when looking at your final renderings...
    Does it work just as effectively at a very small (30-50 pixels) size as a very large size? Will it work grayscale as it does in RGB/CMYK? Is it bold while remaining not too busy?

    Oh, i undesrtand what you are saying.

    THe logo itself has nothign to do with the background - the logo is only the words. I just put it on that background to make it look nice. Its sort of when NI puts there logo on a background like this:

    Even though you don't consider the backgroudn to be part of the logo.
    I suppose what i meant about comments on it is just how the word itself is designed - not the background.

    My apologies - and thanks for the insight.

    Gotcha. As a one time design, I like grungy looking letters. For logos, I think clean lines work better. Grunge looks and lack of detail take away from design at smaller sizes, so keep that in mind, as logos get used at very small sizes the majority of the time.
