Yes the word HERO is fine, ideally you would be able to remove the word Honda and replace it with another MFG or something else.

We sell all parts for Honda and Acura.

Artiobg- I think it has to be more quality less quantity. The logos that you are submitting don't really have a finished look to them.

rezlive- none of them or good enough.

To be honest I really haven't liked any of the designs, this is why no of them are in the favorites. I dont want other designers to get the wrong idea and play off of your designs thinking i really like them etc.

I like them to be simpler no a lot going on remember they have to be universal for other brands all in the automotive industry for the most part.

NO metaly. Not rough. I would say luxurious is more along the lines. No car parts really.

I was thinking it would be cool to see a rough almost graphiti like crown and then the words HERO under it so that the words Hero make up the lower part of the crown...

You could also do the word HERO with a Star in place of the O... add that in with a shield or one of the other images that I posted and we may be on to something.

Don't be afraid to also add some depth to the logo a little shading goes a long way and is why the current #63 etc is up there.

It would be wise to review all of the images I posted as I really like them and elements can be brought over.

NO using the HONDA font, the HONDA wings etc I want to stay away from using things that directly relate to Honda.

Does that help? Any other questions?

I am really digging #129 and #157 on both can you scoot the H over ever so slightly.

Also can I see these 2 logos with the word HONDA somehow incorporated? Maybe as a Cursive script or just integrated in to match the theme.. Can you use the Honda Logo and then use our logo as a STAMP.

Take the arrow off of #183 see how that looks.
