Logo For My Business

Recommended Posts

I decided to have a professional help me with my logo design. It is well worth spending the money, since this logo will be used on my new sign, business cards, web site and my two "yellow pages" ads. Those ads alone are costing me $12,000/year. They have been a good investment, they currently break even and bring me a little extra every month. They need to be more effective. If this new logo could give them a more professional look, they may bring in an extra 10% in sales. That would be huge.

My designer has sent a few basic designs to have me choose from. I told him I wanted the sun incorporated with the name. The sun is meant to portray optimism. I would like some honest feedback on which ones you guys like better. Also, any particular changes or ideas to a design that may enhance it: font, color, size anything you can think of. I need to get back with him and try and narrow down what direction(or design) I like the best. From their it can be tweaked.

I am not real crazy about the bottom one, mainly because the sun does not really look much like a sun.

I'm with you, not real partial to the bottom one.

I REALLY like the contrasting letter size of the 1st.

I also think I like the 'sun' of the 1st one the best.

If you could have the 1st sun with the bits (0' and 1's) of the 2nd sun I think you would have a real winner with it.

Let us know your final decision.

I actually like the third one the best, but it obvious I'm a minority. The first one does pop when you first look at it, good first impression. The only thing like about the second one is the binary in the sun.

I like the 2nd one.

The first one doesnt grab my attention like the 2nd. Also, the sun looks a bit cheesy.

Althought I think I would try having "Computer" in the black box instead of Bright-Eyed

Myself... I like the second one the best.

Tho.... If you took the sun in the second ad, and the wording in the third. That would be the way I would consider as a better way to go.

So are we helping, or just making things more confusing..... :blink:

those who like the 2nd one, is it because it has symmetry? Do you guys like the second one because of the type of sun used?

Another one in the minority: That swirling Sun denotes ACTION! Dynamism! ... Something happening. The others are more static, though I also like the binary "message" half-hidden in the second Sun and the color-fade: it shows something going on (but not ACTION!, like the swirls convey ... ;)).

I do like the way the Sun bursts forth from the "B" in the first one.

I do not like the darkness of the reverse color in the second, white-on-black lettering makes your eyes work unnecessarily (maybe a subliminal message: This is hard!), nor the black background, white border, then another border, in black again (more work for my tired ol' eyes). And the rays are too fine and numerous (looks, I dunno ... hairy?).

Going with what you like, the first, all I'd change is make the entire phrase "Bright-eyed" in bold rather than just the first letter. I think it would make it more dynamic (which I apparently like).

Have your designer take the lettering from the first one and place it over the third sun and post it. I'd like to see how that would look.

I always need to see something different. :D

I like the third because the swirl and it is off set.

But there again I am the only one who likes my imaginary friends.

I told my designer to go with choice 2. He is going to make some different choices for me to pick from.

In retrospect, I could have probably done what he has done, and saved the money.
