Top Three Things to Communicate

#1 - Professionalism
#2 - Quality
#3 - Originality

Our Target Audience:

Our clients appreciate quality, creativity, and are willing to invest the money needed to achieve a unique look. They are educated, health conscious, have discretionary income, and also place a high priority on the interior design of their home.

Color Preferences

The company colors I would like to focus on are blue, black, silver/gray, and white

Our Ideas and Additional Information:

Because the Bluebonnet is the state flower of Texas, it makes sense to consider using it as part of my logo for name recognition, but I am open to all ideas!!! I would like the logo to also be used as a watermark on my website pictures and to be used on company shirts (Blue or gray), hats, stationary, and letterhead

Style

Wordmark

Stylized type that may include small abstract or pictorial elements.
Pictorial Mark

Literal or representative imagery is used to symbolize the brand.
Emblem

A badge that usually envelopes the logo
Famous Logos displayed under fair use to enrich the general publics' knowledge of graphic design.

Hello designers, I know the creative process can be very time consuming and I appreciate your effort. Landscape Design is also a creative process (if you're doing it right anyway) and I know how difficult it can be to put out something new and unique. I will do my best to provide feedback to help you get closer to what I am looking for. I am looking forward to seeing your work. Good Luck!

Designers, Is it appropriate/helpful to critique one logo based upon what I like about another designer's logo, or should I only comment about what I like/dislike about the specific logo I am analyzing? Example: I may like this logo's font/symbol but I would prefer the colors used on another logo. What do you think? Randy

you can do that but through private messages to each designer

Try to give as much feedback as you can on each designers page, its best to explain every aspect of the logo, usually divided into: Icon / Colour / Type / Layout (positioning of logo relative to the text)

dont be afraid to say you dont like something, any designer who cant handle constructive criticism is in the wrong industry =)

hope this helps

Thanks Bugy and Speedlogo, very helpful. Can all the designers view my comments/critiques when I click on that particular designers logo? Also, would it be helpful or too much work if after I receive the first logo from a designer (and provide comments on that logo) that I go into that designers portfolio and pick, for instance, my 3 favorite logos and mention what I like about them and how they might be used in developing my logo?

Hello designers, I appreciate the submissions you have made so far and also your willingness to work with me so quickly on changes I may recommend. I am enjoying this process! If I haven't done so already, I will look at your personal profiles to select a few favorite logos and let you know how I could see you making changes to those logos to help develop my logo. Please do not hesitate to let me know of anything I can do to facilitate your creative process! Thanks, Randy

Hi Designers, another day gone by and some more excellent submissions. You guys are incredible! I belong to a Networking Group of people who own small businesses and I know they will be very interested in this process. QUESTION: When I select a winner will I receive file/files that I can change colors, sizes, etc. if I want to put the logo on different color shirts, brochures, etc. Ideally, I would like one finished copy that cannot be manipulated along with another copy that can be altered by a local designer if I choose. Thanks, Randy

Hi Designers. I am going to be open to the possibility of using some version of a B or even BLC as part of the logo. I still like the bluebonnet symbol because I think it makes for good company name recognition/association, but I am seeing other contests where letters/initials can be effective as well.

Hi designers, How many blue ribbons are awarded? Is it a percentage of total entries, or is it a percentage of the total entries that have been ranked? I would like to have as many blue ribbons as possible to reward designers for participation in my contest. Please let me know! Randy

Hi Designers,
Because I am continuing to receive new and original concepts that I like, I have extended my contest for 2 additional days. Please note the colors, styles, layouts, and fonts used on the higher rated logos as these have appealed to me the most. **I am particularly drawn to some of the original artwork of the bluebonnets. I will continue to give private feedback and even look at your portfolios to look at logos you have done that I like and feel can be modified for a version of my logo. Thanks again for your hard work! Randy
