Hello

I've made some development to my logo. And would like to see your opinion.

TS stand for Tactical Store almost like a shield, with a beret on top of it. The shield is winged.

Thanks in advance.

PS: about me, I'm an online retailer. I sell military, tactical, hunting and outdoor gear and clothes.

Some adjustments I would at least try:
  • Make the feathers of the wings the same thickness as the TS lockup.
  • Make the counters between the feathers the same size as the counters of the TS lockup.
  • Do something with the star. It won't reproduce at small sizes (like how the attached file looks in your post)
  • The S is a little awkward with the varying thickness and the way it wraps to the shape of the shield on the outside, but not the inside
  • Nothing aligns. The tops of the wings don't align with the top of the beret, TACTICAL STORE doesn't align with the edge of the wings, etc.

I really like your logo and I would agree with @tobefirst points. Alignment is a subtle thing that can make a world of difference. I would like to see your logo in color as well. For the B&W version, like the one you're showing, you might consider using different shades of black and gray to help separate elements. The wings could be a medium gray while the TS is full black. The hat could be a different shade of gray or match the wings. For the S, perhaps you could round off the top left corner slightly to give it the S feel inside of the number 5. Nice job!

Appreciate it, thanks.
Will try out.

I tried different colors and it was a nightmare for me. After some advice and a little research, I decided to stick with one color only. It's a tone of black.

For the (S feel inside 5) the 5 must represent something, otherwise it would be meaningless.
