The red and blue bits together make a lowercase a. The white rectangle is supposed to represent a keystone.

I see the lowercase a. The blue and black colors are too similar in my screen, I had to use the ancient xmag program to zoom the logo ;)

Anyway, I like the logo.

terrible logo, way too clever. Even after reading your explanation I didn't immediately get it. At the very least try a different colorscheme.

Ditto on not "getting" it. :-(

My first thought was "5 1/4 floppy icon."

Lol, that's what it looked like to me at first sight too.

I do see the keystone, but the lowercase a is escaping me. It does stand out nicely as a favicon, however.

ok, I see it now. Too square, perhaps if you rounded the a a little it would be more obvious.

Supposed to is about as far as it goes.

Don't you have a friend who does design work? This isn't any good, not even as a starting place.

Would you like it better if I told you I went to art school?
