    Hi chasventreó

    Your list is good, however, it inevitably leads to a vault, and although the dial you drew is very, very good and advanced, I'm not sure the "gestalt" of XaRT is so much a guardian as it opens doors. It is enabling, and a safe suggests power, but it also suggests disabling (people from opening something). I'd prefer to see a green light over a red one as symbols go.

    You give so much thought before you draw something, chasventre, that I'd like to see what you can imagine with: "Permissions, enabling, security, power, and options" as key ideas.

    My Best,

    Gary

    It's clean, will work at small sizes, and the "nugget", graphically, is easy to figure out. The Xara part is segmented from the Registry Tool part by your use of colours.

    Nice.

    I worked on this design a little more, so here are 3 more versions.

    Never give up. You will never fail, but you may find a lot of ways that don't work.

    Rik beat me to it on the design only difference is the RT fill, just to emphasize Registry Tool in the second image.

    Stygg.

    OK, One more try using;

    Permission, enabling, security and power!

    How about a dolphin jumping from closed to opened folder with power?

    It's interesting, and I truly mean it in a positive way.

    I'm not here to say "no" all the time, but rather to advise.

    I see great improvement and better focus in your design here than before.

    I leave it up to other members to comment on it: I already have, I've called it interesting.

    My Best,

    Gary

    @Gary,

    I would place the red light (off) over the "a" as then the green lights (on) key into your green for the X R T letters.

    Good idea, but my render is just food for thought here, Mike. Other members have already out-thought me on this one!

    My Best,

    Gary
