I tend to think that the lightbulb thing has been done way too many times as soon as you want to symbolize "ideas". It's literally the first thing most designer will think about. But given the name of the business, it's justified. But still, there are thousands upon thousands of lightbulb logos out there.

On another thing is that bright yellow on a white background makes me want to rip my eyes out of their socket ;)

Besides that, this logo is particularly well done, well balanced and good choice of font.

What an improvement!

And yes, the yellows are quite bright. Out of the logos you posted recently, I like this one the best because it makes the light bulb more subtle, yet you get a clear idea of the roof for the cabin. Well done.

Edit: I'd like to add that you could remove the "light" lines and it would still hold together. It would look simpler without them, and simplicity is almost always a good thing.

I agree with ditching the "light lines"- there is only 3 of them and they are green coming out of a yellow bulb.

Thank you for your feedback ! We will change the colour and try to simplify the logo (Making also the lightbulb more symbolic).
