opinion/notes

I am going to guess this "Beacon" icon is a modern take on a laurel wreath. If I am wrong, then I have no idea what's going on here. I'm mostly confused by what kind of artifact it's supposed to be in the epically epic epic-some video below. It looks like something the Autobots fight over with the Decepticons. As a logo, it does look kind of regal and sporty, but feels like it's lacking any kind of personality. The type is bland but the "4" is pretty.

“Beacon” video. Or Paul Revere meets Tron.
