Please keep in mind that the inside of our Playhouse is a natural scene with a tree house and tree trunks. There is some industrial aspect like metal walls.

We want our logo to reflect our interior which looks like the outdoors (tree house and tree trucks) with a industrial touch (metal lights and half metal walls in the cafe). Would you be interested in showing us something?

Hello Gina,
would you please try and rank as many entries as possible. This will help the designers try and get you that "perfect logo". Please take some time and read:

It's a valuable resource for Contest Holders and will help you understand how LT works.

Thanks.

i would recommend you rank entries by your favorite beans first then we can build your logo around your bean style.

Hmmm.... I think we like the older ones better. Could you try #120 EXACTLY like it is but longer and could you take the stem off the bean and add another leaf? Thanks

just would like to say that the top three ranked logos are very similar to the link you have given (http://www.appleseedsnyc.com/), and might get you in some legal headaches down the road.
Unless you own that company too, then I might have missed it in the brief.
best of luck

Interesting - by directing that the designer copy a competitor's logo, the client ends up providing exposure for a competitor's brand.
