I designed some logos and I wondered what you guys thought. I wanted two logos — one with just initials, and a logo with the site name spelled out. So I came up with this design set:

This would be in the header, probably shrunk up so it isn’t so tall.

This goes in the sidebar.

Please note: these images have no borders. WordPress helpfully (or unhelpfully) puts a border around all my images, and I’ve never bothered to figure out how to get it to stop.

The intertwined D & R gave me a lot of trouble because I couldn’t get over the fact that it looked like the abbreviation for Doctor. I tried to get around that by including the ampersand.

Right away, I can tell that I need to outline the gold letters in slightly darker pixels, because they look blurry. I picked these colors because I thought they’d go well with book covers.

Any other suggestions?
