I love it, this is the 3rd revision of this logo previous one looked very similar but the constraints and spacing weren't perfect. Thanks to xapovisuals for perfecting it! he is a self-taught motion graphics designer and a 3D enthusiast so reach out for gigs.

Thanks for reading. IF you have suggestions to make it better feel free to text me on Twitter .
