    $\begingroup$ You have to improve the topology of your logo. It looks like you have a single n-gone front face which should be split/optimized. This will give you more control on the bevel as well as prevent weird shading caused by the sharp induced triangles. $\endgroup$

you can check the CGCookie guide for clean topology here
