I am sorry Mel. It was not meant to be harsh - but often smaller companies don't employ a full time or even line up a graphics designer - so someone sketches something and they use it. I wonder if the newer CCM Logo came from that type of thing.
However, you are not in the business to make logo's and your markers are first rate. I could have said 'the marker looks amateurish' and THAT would be harsh - and in this case false.
I hate the internet for its lack of tone.
