I do have a couple suggestions though.
Mostly, the V just doesn't seem to stand out as well as in the old logo,
there could be a couple reasons for this:
- The overall contrast of your new logo is much less than the original.
This is a bit more noticeable when looking at greyscale versions of
the logos . The outlines and highlights in particular. Likewise the
bright spot on the background seems almost brighter than the V itself.
- The dot on the i, and the top of the im in general, are very prominent
features of your logo. I like the im style, but I don't think it
should be more prominent than the V. On lower res images it might be
worth getting rid of the im entirely, like the how the macvim logo has
Lastly, the shading on the V just seems a little bit off. It's hard for
me to tell what it's trying to do, is it supposed to be a 3D chiseled
effect? It looks like it except some off the relief on the vertical
doesn't look realistic. I think I like the "raised plate" look from the
macvim icon a little better for that.
Well, that's probably more feedback than you wanted, it does look good
