Hi Folks,

Thanks for all your efforts. I'm looking for somthing that gives a more professional image. Design #10 is the best so far but still not quite right.

Thanks

Hi,

I think design #10 is ttill edging it. I like the green colour in #10 & #12

I like the inclusion of the acorn in the designs but would prefer something more like #10.

14# is good. I like the text (font) but i'd like to see a simpler acorn like #10

Hope this helps. Let me know if you need some more feedback.

drbeat77's #22, #19, #21 is too close to bens' entry (#10). Even the font used looks similar. Please dont do a DJ.

CH as you are an internet based business I feel you haven't quite grasped the concept of WEB 2.0 logo design. I see many entries for this and other competitions that are quite simply dismissed without feedback. Designers that have taken the brief, and the other entries into consideration and have produced both original and 'REFINED' versions that many companies would be proud to adorn. For your information and enlightenment please check http://www.web2list.com/logos which will show you just what WEB 2.0 logos are in the public domain and give you an idea of just how much your logo will have to stand out of the crowd.

This is just advice from a designer with a mere 20 years professional experience working with blue chip organisations and design professionals.

Ignore advice or choose to work with the designers who are commiting time and resource at their own expense.

Hi,

Thank you all again for your designs.

I still think #10 is the best overall - although i like the font/text on #13 & #14.
#27 - That is a nice idea. I'd like to see more simple acorn ideas like this rather than the more complex #14.
Also, if you would like to use a logo, i would like to see it positioned like #13 & #15 rather than #14 & #27.

I would like to stick with the green & grey for the colours. No brown please.

be careful not to be too similar to 'acorn marketing'
