Excellent work Sean! I really like these. The only problem I have is that I can barely see the hands.(On the Ultimate clock) Is there any way you can make them, maybe a bit bigger and clearer? Thanks mate!

Hmmm.. The only way I could make them bigger so it still looks right would be to enlarge the whole logo/badge. The hands are slightly transparent so the date could be read more easily too which means they suffer slightly for the actual hands visibility.

I'll keep playing with different ideas for them mate and hopefully I'll find a better, clearer solution.

Try this mate, I've made all the hands twice as wide and there's no transparency now on each clock..
