Topic tags/keywords: question

First attempt at a logo. It’s a stamp. My thought is to put a date and initials next to it. I would like your options on the look of it.

Oops, kind of forgot the picture

Is it one of those white letters on white background logos? I don’t see anything.

It’s been a rough day. The logo is my family’s brand.

I saved the image to my computer and turned it 90 degrees to the right so I could read the writing. When I did that, the two opposing P’s in the middle confuse me. They are sideways to the wording on the outside of the circle so at first it didn’t even realize it was a P. Then I thought, well his initials are MP and there aren’t any words on the outside that say PP, so what’s going on there?

So I guess I’m saying I like the outside, but the inside – those two opposing Ps, just seem a bit off. Maybe a single stylized P that reads at the correct angle, or if you want to do the one upright, one upside down thing maybe draw them connected somehow? Or M.P.

In any case, whatever letters are inside, I’d try to change the font to something a bit fancier.

Edit: If the Ps in the middle are meant to be read upright like in your photo, then the URL on the right should be facing the inside, like the PittSticks is, if that makes sense.

Yes, that’s the way I looked at it on my computer, and the middle doesn’t look right to me if it’s supposed to be oriented that way.

Not sure about the double “P”.
How about a single “P” on a random crosshatching of sticks?
