Brutal Logo Design Critique Cropped Logo

Rui submitted this logo for Brutal, an auto performance and aesthetics shop. He left the following comment about the logo.

“The client’s business is the preparation of sports cars with one of 3 focuses: performance, aesthetics and personalization.

Design Principals

The logo isn’t terrible by any means, but I think there are some areas for improvement. The inclusion of the city hall tower was a great idea as I’m sure it is an iconic piece of architecture in Milwaukee. However, I think the drawing could be simplified in order to create a more straightforward design.
