the shape which looks like a sun setting/rising was originally a complete circle but I cropped it to give me an idea of where I could insert the text, once I put the text in, to prevent the text and image from merging at all I put a drop shadow behind the text which also made the text bolder and enhanced the blue colouring.
Create a Hatched Drop Shadow Text Effect in Illustrator

The vintage rustic look of black is a nice touch to this retro logo. Also the cross- hatching triangle at under the main design gives a 3-d feel with shadowing affect. The blue border makes the black center pop, especially with the white lettering against the background. The type going along the shape of the piece creates balance throughout the piece.
