Final Logo design (they wanted a horizontal and vertical option):
They wanted the figures changed (reminded them too much of cocoons).
The client didn't like the perception that the three figures were standing in front of a picture, instead of being a part of it. They wanted to add a bible and rays...as well as many other things...thankfully I was able to talk them out of most of it (too many elements in one design). I also tried to keep it simpler by only hinting at rays by using a gradient (as seen in the final design at top). They kept wanting more detail on the figures...
