It is always risky using images to represent people in a logo unless it is obvious that the image does not represent any one gender or color or race. The second one in my opion fails in this respect because it depicts an image that is obviously a male.
The design is professional looking but do you want to take the risk of potentially alienating 50% of the population?
I agree with number 2, though I think that font is a little difficult to read at that size...maybe I'm too critical, but it's something to keep in mind if you plan on doing a sized down version including that text.
Originally posted by actnow Andrej, how long ago did you contract with Anmmark?
I ordered two logos months ago to be designed and to this day.
I have never heard from him again after giving him the details.
I sent follow up emails but never heard back from him.
It took him almost two months for mine but he did deliver. He didn't respond to my emails so I had written off the payment as a loss but then he did email apologizing for the delay and delivering my logo. I believe he got in over his head with a poorly managed $10 logo promotion and he became swamped but I'm sure he will deliver your logo eventually.

No it's not better but I wanted to be clear so I am not accused of exaggerating.
I agree with the two other posts...yes it was only 10 bucks thus the reason I wasn't too pushy but after a few weeks without word I emailed. Once I didn't hear back I assumed I was ripped off since it was only 10 bucks I didn't worry about it much.
I agree with the other two posts and I'm realistic if I'm paying 10 bucks I don't expect the world for that amount so I'm pretty laid back but as simon indicated I did pay for a logo and if you can't handle the work load then don't commit to it be it $10 or $1,000.
To be fair Anmmark admittedly got in over his head with that promotion and I believe he learned how not to run a promotion. He apologized and delivered the logo. No harm done.
