website and logo design

I'm working on a new project for a local young band called pegasus.

I did a first draft for the logo and website design:

first draft

I'm not sure about the flipped A in the logo, I don't know if it is obvious enough... what do you think about the logo and the website design?

Pegasus - the winged horse, son of Poseidon and Medusa. Suitable logotype, I like it a lot.

i really like the logo, the flipped A works well imo. on the home page you should start with a "pegasus is.." kind of message, so people unfamiliar with the band know that its not "pegsus." the font for the menus and titles has a strange feel to it, kinda metropolis-like.. hard to describe. looks pretty sweet though.

[edit]
btw, whats the little thing inbetween the L and i of Links?

Simu -

(Of course I'll post I didnt see this on AC though)


You're onto a very goot start w/ a good concept.

What I would do is make the lines of the wings more defined. Thicker and thinner at some points, some with a very nice brush stroke.

Also I'd maybe make the wings smaller and place the type directly underneath them.

Give that a shot and post back

personally i think it looks a little too much like the US air force's logo (is it US or RAF?!!).. the wings of an eagle or whatever it is. could you not keep the upside down A, i think that made it quite unique.

I like it best with the border like in number one and three in logo.jpg. The idea of having both a simple A and one upside-down is very good.

If I would have done it myself I would have had a border on the upper side of the wing. I would color it in gradient colors, the A darker than the wing background colour and the edges the same as the bg. But that's just my opinion.

You have success coming up, I can feel it.

rock site.
rock feel? questionable.
It looks more like a child-ish version of HarleyDavidson or the AirForce? logo
in logo3.jpg, the lines seem irrelevant, and to the whole free concept. the spacing of the text, the type-face, also doesn't fit.
have you tried something like Diploma, but dirtier?

archi.gif,
the menu could be thought out differently rather than the strict bar form =), becuase I know you're alot more creative than that
