The .jpg file and the .ai file are images of our current logo for another product and our company. The napkin drawling is a version of what I want for TriXY...It's bad I know. In the napkin drawing--TriXZY--the eye is meant to be exactly the same or similar to the BoXZY's left eye (to tie the logos to each other).
TriXZY is inspired by the aliens in War of the Worlds.
It is a spider because it is weaving, laying web, as a 3D printer lays filament. I would like there to be as many overlaps in visual semantics and form between the BoXZY logo and the TriXZY logo as is possible.
In terms of playful vs serious, the level of the BoXZY logo is perfect.
I would stick with the overall of form of this image, as I am trying to convey several concepts in this logo. But, if your daring, let's see what you got!
Also, try to make this more like a spider laying web than a spider pooping...
