nice work. but i did a squint test and i can't read the "do you". the bg reminds me of a retina and there's a space under "foo" that begs to be filled by more copy or centering the "foo" ... "foo" is a little bare with no outlining or texture. i like the fonts. the bezel is a little dated, but i think that's okay.

what does this stand for? does it represent the thoughtfulness, integrity and warmth that foosters generate? what does foo mean to you? i think it's a great draft!

Same font, different background. I think, with that font, it would look better on the side of a hot rod.

I agree. Nice concept, but could use a tweak.

I second lowering/centering Foo a bit (maybe a hard edge drop shadow?), which would make room for a larger 'Do you' (maybe sitting like a numerator in a fraction), which could leave it subject to the viewers order of reading it..

Thanks for the critique, everybody. I'll make a few tweaks!

Bigsky, it does symbolize the energy here as well as the fun. Kind of an electric feel in the air here, but in a good way!

I love the background and the message. That font doesn't do it for me though.
