The Old Bank Vault

Brief from client 

Didn't really get much of a brief but they want something better than they have on their business cards already.

Thanks for all your comments on version 1. I had to make some edits as the name was incorrect.

I kept the font as I like it and it suits the old vibe.

What do you guys think?

I somehow enjoy this one even better. I'm seriously digging the subtle monogram.

I still have to question whether or not every single detail is necessary. For example, do you really need x's in each bolt in that middle circle? And are the little x's and dashes next to the turn stiles and in the corners necessary, as they are most likely going to disappear once this is embossed or shrunk down?

Sometimes simplifying can help push a logo like this even further. I'd also love to see this in colors!

Sorry Erin but the client has requested a black/white silver/grey colour scheme

Hello kick ass revision! lol I prefer this to the original- less words more character! I kinda agree that the little xxx shadows aren't really necessary, but that is just me- everything else is spot on for this style of logo you're going after. Good job =)

Its a good concept, but to be honest it doesn't quite hit the mark for me. I'm not really feeling the font choice. And the keyhole on the vault looks a bit silly. Also the vault at first looks like an old timey ship steering wheel (what's the name of those?).

I think it could be really cool, but needs work.

I do , also, see an old ship steering wheel instantly. What if you would relegate

the key hole in the negative space of the " A " in the " VAULT " ? Perhaps, with

more modern font it might work solid and stronger on its own?
