The main colours of the site will be grey, blue, pink and white.
the site will be very similar to this:
http://www.jonathons.net/

I like the bolder fonts with teh two words in different colours. As later on I will have a spin off company called RoomQuays to rent rooms in houseshares.

could I get a pictorial mark as well. Combining the C and Q together or within each other.
Great work guys.
#3 is nice but I think the text my need to be simple as it will eventially be outside the shop.
~6 great work could you put teh background of Canary wharf instead i.e sky scrapers and the millennium wheel perhaps.

Nice new entries! Please can everyone work on a logo combining the C & Q.
It will need to be quite simple and slighty abstract , perhaps having the C wrapped around the Q and it being in the two different colours.
The logo is as important as the main lettering.
#11 nice work, please can you try out some more logo designs.
#9 very nice, slick and polished. Please compliment with a logo.
#5 Nice work. again please look at a logo too.
#12 much better! can you resubmit with a logo and maybe remove the pink strip from the swish, it reminds me of a toothpaste logo.

#2 #13 #9 #10

can you try some more designs with a letter mark using the C & Q, perhaps an abstract mark that is plays on the word Quay (which sounds like Key)

#18 please can you work on the wordmark logo more. the city skyline is not very important as the text and logo. although we may incorporate it in the website but its teh text and logo Im after now.
I do like teh font you have used, interesting choice. Please improve the wordmark as it looks alittle messy. see #30 #36 for example of what im looking for.
Great work though. Best of luck!! Peter

#30 very nice. can you come up with more, I like the polished look of it and fits in with the UK market.
nice - what you did with the wave in the logo. There have been some really good forerunners. I would love to see more of your work.
Best of luck

#38 can you try increasing the size of 'City quays' reducing the size of teh logo so it doesnt overwhelm the wording. Finally place the 'waterside living' underneath. Cheers

#46 very nice. I like the word play. One of the first to spot that. Play around with some more examples of this. Like the idea, but there is something lacking. Colours look dull and font unaspiring. Great work though

#44 still looks abit cluttered and busy. Simplify it and it will be definately a contender.

Mary123,

#117 & #118 are not exactly original concepts and too close in design, colour, fonts to my entries. Please play fair and withdraw them,

Thanks

Mosermanique, have you even followed the development and evolution of the design ideas in this competition? I think not. My design has evolved with certain changes at the request of the client, which is a common occurence and chain of events which even you cannot deny following in other competitions.
