OMNIS - the erias line LOGO CONCEPTS

I've been tinkering with this on and off throughout the entire process of making this demo. I've done logos, redone them, settled on them and then, later, decided they needed entirely redoing.

The latest iteration comes in multiple forms; since every tweak I made seemed to produce something I liked, I decided to keep a copy of every version.

Though each of these is the product of two days worth of design, I don't feel that much closer to decided which one will be "the one".

There's also an element of "promotional" presentation to the second image, I was trying to apply the basics I've picked up from FZD's youtube videos.

Not that I'd compare my artistic talent to Feng or the students showcased here: I'm merely taking examples from the methods of presentation he commends in this video.
