    Hm, I like the one in the middle. You could still put erm… whatever “Notenlinien” are in english (the lines you used in the first example) across that logo.
    However, I think there’s much potential in that sketch, be it something inside the ‘D’ or creating a colored logo from it etc. 🙂

    The solution may be to use a not-so-hackneyed musical symbol.
    How about a logo that turns the final “o” in Denemo into a whole-note
    (semibreve) and put a Fermata over it? This would link in with the idea
    of denemo as a sort of finale or culmination. Or – is there a symbol for
    a coda?

    Richard: the note/D symbol has the advantage that it can be used stand-alone, including as application icon. It may be “hackneyed”, but everyone who ever saw a few notes will have an idea what this is about. Not so with whole-note plus Fermata.
