#58 nice but a little busy, how about making the icon more simplistic, look more like a line drawing of a chandelier. Background needs to be little lighter, we like Carlyle in cursive and design in lettering. We also want the light green incorporated in the design, perhaps the chandelier against ivory background.

#83 very sharp, love the look, however, not sure this will read for a sign, can we try ivory or beige background, chocolate script for Carlyle, like the way design is tucked in there

Designers some of the logos are looking a little too much like we are a garden shop

We are a high end furniture showroom, we carry an eclectic mix of furnishings and accessories, recycled teak, Tibetan trunks and cabinets, upholstery and art work.

We need a logo that will translate into a great and visible sign letting people know we provide design services as well as stagings (decorating and furnishing homes that are for sale giving them a unique Carlyle look)

Even though the chocolate brown background is stunning it won’t translate into an effective sign. Instead of a bright white background, we’d like an ivory or a soft beige with the chocolate brown lettering incorporating the green somewhere.

Thank you all for the great work, keep it up and we’ll keep checking

Actually the ranking is not showing up correctly.
the way we intended it is
1st #144
2nd #178
3rd #160
4th #195
5th #208

#208 nice lotus, would like it a little smaller, brown Carlyle, what is the out of focus looking part underneath all this?

#424 Like the idea of the vertical card, can you replace the icon with a lotus or a romantic chandelier?

#189 Interesting

#182 nice icon, different, would like the Carlyle font a bit more flowy with a good C

#178 I llike the modification of the fleur di lis Very nice, can we try this over the green background, with brown Carlyle

#173 Nice icon, nice type font

#160 is there a way to make the icon pop a bit more?

#149 can you do this with a different icon, not so contemporary?

#40 nice and clean, like it

#228, 229 and 230 nice work brain,

#228 Although I love the subtle look, can we try green scroll design brown carlyle and design?

#229 what is in the center of the icon? is it an eyeball? can it be something a bit more organic, lotus?

#230 nice mirrired C can we try this in another more cursive flowing C?

WOW WOW and WOW, can't believe there are now over 350 entries! You guys are too much. This is a lot to consider, that is why we have extended the contest, it's not going to go 5 more days, and will most likely end early but we wanted to take the time to consider all the entries. It's a lot to take in.

Thank you all again for your continued creativity.

Can anybody out there come up with a simple line drawing (or a line of dots) of a chandelier that can be the icon?

Had to take a little time off, sorry. Thank you all, we truly appreciate all your revisions and creative ideas.
Glad to see some chandeliers and other really great clean icons.

Again, I need to stress that as much as the chocolate backgrounds are gorgeous, they won't work for a sign for us as they will not be visible enough. So here again we need the light background, Carlyle in the chocolate brown, perhaps icon in the green as a little pop. We're open to the vertical look. Just do bear in mind this will be used for signs, business cards, letterhead and the web. As far as the business cards are concerned, we'll need some room at the bottom for the name of the designer, address, phone etc.

#235 24digital Like the lotus, but it's a little too large proportionately to the writing, think more understated and again, room for additional info at the bottom

#362 Bordo, like the idea of the chandelier coming from the top like from a ceiling, that works, like the borders and also the lotus, not sure about the fonts though.

#381 designabot nice chandelier, like the font on Carlyle, also like the size font and the con as it leaves room for name address phone etc

#388 mare like the icon and the type font, can you try chocolate for Calyle and green icon?

#391-392 Michael campbell beautiful font, nice design, can icon be chandelier with short line on top and no swoshes?
#376 Tonybright Great chandelier
#396, 397 box magic like the icon
#384 pfdesigner Love the chandelier
#358 sofiko Interesting font
#359 sofiko nice icon, clean look
#352 nice font and icon with the D & D, very nicely done
#342 Beautiful, but a little difficult to read
