Good idea, but I ain’t convinced about the execution of the stairs concept, I’d tweak the stairs and get rid of that shadow below the logo.

agree with Carlos, i like the S stairs concept, is pretty obvious, but you could refine the concept using a much modern shape resolution

I agree. the “S” is a little too distant and disconnected from the rest of the word, which results in the viewer reading “tairway” instead of “Stairway” at first glance. The italics doesn’t help either. It makes it seem like it’s running away from the “S.”

Maybe try using the “S” as more of an icon rather than part of the word? Just some thoughts.

some more design exploration could have gone into this. Not so sure about the type following the S, possible to big.

The S looks great though

I always love when you take a graphic and incorporate it into the text, it really gives the logo some real dimensions especially adding the little shadow down at the bottom which does give the appearance that it arising above.

It looks like a software logo – but for all the wrong reasons.

A simpler execution would help this to read better and to look more sophisticated.

I really liked the Stairway as an ‘S’ but I agree with everyone else, the placement just doesn’t seem right?
