Brimstone In Fire Glyph

This glyph was designed for our band, Brimstone in Fire.

The original design by Dondi Bunye, is literally the alchemical symbol for brimstone (sulfur) :

within the alchemical symbol for fire.

Below is the first attempt at the design, which I find quite crude in hindsight. The orientation of the letters is also Don’s idea, and it proved to be quite a challenge. It turns out that there is no accurate way to make text radiate and what-more, twist from a central point.

I decided to include this second picture of attempt number 2 which was botched from the start.  I don’t think I need to say what went wrong:

And finally the main picture above is the approved attempt no. 3
