    Care to opine ... on our design?


    My employer is having our website overhauled & the website designer says we need a new logo. I'm hoping somebody here will offer their opinion.

    We're an engineering firm - we've always gone by "Telecommunications Consulting Engineers", & we work in Broadcast and Wireless Communications. In addition to logo & website re-design, we've even discussing variations on these terms, maybe reducing them to "Communications Engineers", "Telecom Engineers", "Telecom Consulting Engineers", or "Communications Consulting Engineers" ... "telecommunications" seems like an out-of-date term.

    Here's our current logo - I know, super lame:

    Here's what we've got so far on new one.

    What do you think? Boring? Generic? Amateurish? Maybe it's supposed to be boring / generic since we're engineers??!

    Thank you for any thoughts / suggestions.

    It looks very generic and a lot like a simple radio station logo without the meat.

    What I mean by that is the KGA is too thin so it competes with the other words. The icon of the waves are also in a bad spot. They could easily become a standard tower and look better.

    Communications and engineers fonts need to change.

    Looks very dated and bland. It lacks character and style.

    Yes, does nothing for me. Using audio curves is quite unoriginal and fantastically badly implemented. The KGA also looks squished which really is a no no for me and it reads "Communications KGA Engineers".
