El fondo es un tanto molesto!
I prefer the treatment on this one but I can see how the direction can give the wrong message.
The color looks good. However, the first rendition of the airplane looked more 3D. Also, pointing the airplane to the right gives the idea of moving forward instead of backward. I hope this helps. I say keep the colors and turn it around the other way like you had it. What font are you using?
I really love the use of colour for this concept. Simple but extremely effective! Great work as always!
