#1 and #2 - not a bad start - but not strong enough

Also, both are missing my tag line - which I would like to add if possible. The ® needs to be a superscript in the United States. The distance between the RR in the symbol is too big on 1. I like the Diamond versus the square - but not the sideways R's.

#3 seems too busy to me. The trademark registration mark has to be after resumes for legal reasons. It is good to add the tag line. I like the idea of adding a flag or a pen, but not sure of the way it is done here.

I do not like the R on #4, #5 or #6 - on #4 the wrong font and on #5 and #6 partial Rs. In addition the R cannot have a registration mark by law. Only put the registration mark on the full Robin's Resumes - or it is in violation of my trademark. You are also copying what another designer did better. Finally, this does not include red which is important ot my theme.

#7 Even though further analysis shows it is an inkwell, my first look thought it was a birthday cake. If I can do that - then others would

#8 Much better, directionally my first choice for now.

#9 I like this one - but not sure I really want a flag in there - I still would like the R in the logo not to be sideways - but I like the diamond
#10 Wrong colors (I want Red, White and Blue due to my audience) - and the trademark is in the wrong place

So far I like #8 the best - but the font for #9 I like better than #8 - I do not like my slogan as much in reverse

So far #13 seems best to me - I have re-ranked in the order I like so far.

Note - I am not looking for a flag - and the tag line needs to be included in the design

#23 #24 #25 #26 #27 #28 - Thanks for the try - but I do not want my R wrapped up with a flag
#29 I am not looking for boxes - it also missing my tag line

#20 I do not know what a tie has to do with my brand

#21 I do not know what the circle with a tie has to do with my brand

#22 Interesting start - but I think I like #19 still the best so far

#30 My copyright is for the plain Resumes not for the accented version - so that is not acceptable. I want red white and blue - and I do not want a reversed background. The stylized "R's" with a pen look like something else to me at first glance (and I thought it was that prior to reading the comments) which is not polite in a logo. Thanks for trying.

#31 #32 #33 - I like your previous design better #22 - however I like having Robin's Resumes as it is in my choice #19

#34 Interesting submission - I like it somewhat - the pen and paper are interesting to me. I do not like the script lettering - current generation in the US is not reading cursive - and I create resumes which are formally typed. In addition, I would like the blue to be the darker blue - since that is what is on the American flag. The (R) is too large and I would like my company name separated from the tag line. However, I still like the pen and stars on #19 the best.

#40 - I do not really want a flag - and also do not want a backwards R - logo also seems smaller than the others online. Thanks for trying

#41 and #42 - As noted above, I am not interested in cursive script for my logo (see comment July 21st, 2009, 8:17am). I like having the stars and line from my choice #19

#43 - The company's name is Robin's Resumes(r) not Robin's Resume. I do not like the R with the pen.

Thanks for trying!

#44 - looks like a tree with the stars - thanks for trying
#45 - I like this - it is now close to a tie with #19 - can you add a line between Robin's Resumes (r) and the tag line?

I have reordered my first and second choices after reviewing where I will be using my logo - I like the idea of an in-line logo

Hello Robin
Please consider ranking the designs rather than eliminating the points we gather are valuable even if we do not win your contest. Also take a moment to review the "Ranking and General Tips" as compiled by one of our designers (Bugy) https://logotournament.com/forum/general_discussion/914

Hi Scott - I have ranked many of them and for my favorites have provided feedback within the design itself. I thought I was following what I thought was the right ranking formula - I now have 17 entries and have been somewhat directive in what was necessary for my logo.

I am giving points to over 20 designers - I ranked most designers who have not withdrawn their entries so they can at least get 1 point each - however, if my company name was not spelled correctly the designs are not ranked, since that is critical when doing a logo design.
