+1 Let's avoid using Modata bold.

I think the basic look, with the modified lion, works great, but now the blue glow Fedora logomark looks out of place. Problem is, you take the glow off that Fedora logo mark, and you can barely discern it (and certainly won't be able to at all after printing) from the dark blue background. The priority I think should be on avoiding muddying the logo.
