This is for a children's book publishing company.
The attempt here was to make a couple of open books appear as mountains.
The basic is good: books figuring mountains has potential.
Now the execution needs work. The symbol is a bit too stale and poorly thought through. There's too much going on: the 2 books, the clouds, the sun... You need to boil it down to the bare minimum.
Also, the fact that it's for a children book publishing company doesn't mean that the logo itself needs to be childish-looking.
Thank you so much for this feedback! I asked the designer to make some adjustments, I just posted the latest version. I would love your feedback on that one as well, it is greatly appreciated!
