#4 Looks good I like that style. I would like to see some more like this and also some logos using blue and orange to get away from looking like every other lawn care company.

Thanks to everyone I would like to see something with an identifiable graphic of some sort. Not a mower but something that conveys quality service and luxury

I will be incorporating soon and didnt think to mention it but I need an inc. on the designs. Could someone try some 3d effects? I would also like to check out a very strong Gaults Lawn Care Inc, in orange with maybe a blue grass background

Another thought ive had is to emphasize the G L C for the slogan give your lawn a little glc and I wonder if anyone can make a GLC symbol like an icon or graphic, not just block letters. Thanks to everyone, I appreciate the hard work!

Hello mcgault,

I'd like to know if you are interested in a glossy or glassy look I used in most designs I submitted or would you prefere a more classic logo without modern effects like transparency and reflections.

Thank you.

Phimax I do like the glossy look and would like to see some of the letters in 3d. Also all logos will need to say Gault's Lawn Care Inc. I would like to see the GLC as a graphic or background noticeable but subtle.

can I see Gault's Lawn Care Inc. straight across in orange with some shine or 3d to it and make it look like its sitting on blue grass and one with green grass. Im also still looking for a graphic of some sort with glc. Thanks again for all the submissions thus far please keep them coming, Im just not quite there yet.

I am actually in Kentucky. No real significance other than I wanted to try something different.

Nice to see everyone copying my initial concept! Really people find your own this contest is getting silly!

The way I see it, I had a very similiar design to yours very early in the competition and went from there. So I personally think a lot of designs come very close to mine, including yours. But I don't want to start here any war or something.

Anyway, I wonder how old this site is because I have the feeling here is enough room for improvments. Is this still beta? 2 things that really annoyed me, although I'm new here. The possibility to extend, and the last minute entries of copied designs. I refined my logo from the very beginning of this competition only to see similiar designs to appear on the last day and then it even gets extended.

I don't know maybe it's just me, but there has to be something done. I know this has been posted in the forum. I wonder whether the admins will change something soon or not.

to get that straigt, I don't accuse anyone for copying anything, but please don't accuse me either. It's obvious that the concepts become more and more like each other as the contest holder defines his ideas. And that's why I wouldn't allow new designers to join the competition in the last two days or so. Again, has already been pointed out in the forum.
Sorry and good luck everyone

Hmm again, the CH asks for something , and then chooses something totally opposite of the contest description <Confused>...Expensive, Refined...? If so only #32 or #121 were nice clean choices... sorry phimax, but for a lawncare service it don't look very expensive or refined...the way this website works is whacked sometimes...
