    The scribble makes it hard to read, and I hate that shade of red, and you can't read the last "c"

    Maybe you could do black text with a grey or green squiggle with a slight gradient? Just throwing out ideas.

    My advice is start again.

    The squiggle and stars do nothing for the logo and I do agree with the other posts about the colour choice being very Christmassy. Blue and grey IMHO would be far more suitable.

    Personally I would keep it simple, a nicely chosen type with a slight gradient on the text would look far more effective. I would also try to pull the concept of what the logo is for into the type, a "J" would convert easily to a musical note.

    My Website
    The logo shall be going up the top where that plain text is. Bear in mind that i can change the background at the top to make the logo fit in.

    Also sorry to be a grammar Nazi but not sure about "Podcast's" it doesn't seem correct..

    Shouldn't it be "Jack's Podcast" or "Jack's Podcasts"?

    Couldn't the tagline be 'More choice in music' rather than the one you've got - it seems a bit long.

    My eye read as far as Jack, but then got distracted by and tracked along the jagged line.

    Yeah a concept like that, it's a little more simplified, but I would try to get it to fit into the colour style of the web site.

    Im liking that quite a bit more. Try scooting the quarter note over a little and maybe tucking the flag behind the 'a' a little to tie it together more.
    I would also go with some more subdued colors instead of something real bright. Bright colors get people's attention, but it just looks less professional overall. Try using these 3 colors:
    Blue: 005DB3
    Green: 5BC236
    Gray: E6E6E6
    Perhaps use the gray behind it somehow so it doesnt look like plain colored text. Cs4 decided to take a crap on me today (no idea why...) so i cant show you what i mean, but im sure you can figure it out, you've made tons of progress already imo.

    Using all your comments and suggestions i put this together. I personally think this is alot better than the original but as allays there is still room for improvement, what do you think?

    I know im going to have to change the color of the music but what shade because it cant be to bright now :L
