Thank you for all the great submissions!

Would love to see some new options with bright colors.
Also, want to emphasize "tails" and the fact that we serve both dogs & cats.

Awesome work everyone!

Hi everyone...
Wow - I am SO IMPRESSED with all of your submissions!!!

For now, let's stay away from pinks and purples. We want colors to be gender-neutral as our clients are men and women who are looking to pamper their pets. A little purple or pink as an accent color is fine, but should not be the main color.

Keep up the great work.
I can't believe how many quality submissions we have received.

Thank you.

Hi,

Thanks again for all the great submissions.

Would love to focus on a very distinctive look for our dog and cat in the logo. Want them to be playful and cute. Should also be very distinct and memorable so that people will recognize the brand by just looking at the cat and/or dog image.

Thank you!

Hi everyone!

Some really great submissions so far - thank you!!!

Would also welcome some ideas around the name "crazy tails" with a possible focus on cat & dog tails, or maybe just play with the name itself...not all entries must have a cat & dog in the submission. Looking for some creative options that really make the name "pop."

Really excited with all the submissions - good luck to everyone!!!

Have a great weekend.

Hi everyone...

Thank you for the FANTASTIC submissions - we are very pleased with the quality and creativity of the entries submitted.

With the large number of submissions we received, it has been a challenge working full time and managing the logo process. With this said, we will be extending this contest

Again, thank you all for your great efforts!

Hi everyone -

Summary of Crazy Tails logo preferences:

- Font color: Blue for the word Crazy and Green for the word Tails. Prefer gradient - but open to all shading options.
- Font style: Rounded and full - no thin lines.
- Style: Paw print over the letter "i" in tails. Small cat & dog images to the right of the words Crazy Tails. Cat and dog images should be custom (no clipart).

Most importantly - have fun when creating the Crazy Tails logo!

Thank you.
