Our Ideas and Additional Information:

Old logo was stick figures (thick lines) showing mom,dad, kid standing - is from 70's and looks it. I like the family portrayal, but can't seem to make it look contemporary.
Can it happen? or simply go for more of the Letter look.

Design #1

The smiley faces look less than professional. The "M" and "W" design might be toyed with, and the color scheme would have to be bolder with a professional look. This looks more like we're playing kids games rather than a professional office.

Thank you for your submission

Design #2

Font used in the full name needs to look more professional, serious. The design around the name looks very busy, needs to be toned down. The letters "M" and "W" look very feminine, would prefer more neutral. I did like this better than #1.

Thank you for your submission

#5 - Definitely more on the lines I'm looking for. #10 is along the same lines, but the people look like teeth with the roots showing. Please remember the only time the roots show are when the teeth are extracted or the teeth are seriously sick!! #'s 5 and 6 are making me feel positively about the website.

Thank you for your submissions.

Hello Grafikus,

Can you make the "DDS PA" in black, and the gold colored characters (and line) a teal (or just a little darker) blue?

Thanks,

Hello Grafikus,
I appreciate your prompt response. I think the different colors for the individuals is important as it appears to define which "head" goes with which "body" (for lack of a better term). Therefore, I'm trying to get the best combination of colors for the dad figure, and then the mom and kid figures.
Could we try #72 with the dad figure the same purple as the name. I'm worried it might be too much purple, so then I might try it again with that same combo, but remove the box.
Another combo might be to take #73, and have the dad be the same purple as the name. Same idea with #75.
Thank you for your efforts...I think we're almost there.
