Color Preferences

Black and blue primary colors. Open to a 3rd accent color, but could go either way. 3rd color could be a neutral color like gray or white, or an extra pop color if used lightly. So mainly black and blue, 3rd color optional.

Our Ideas and Additional Information:

A few ideas.

First, I want the X in "exclusive" to be a focus. Maybe its larger. Or maybe the bottom of the x on one side is extra long.

I don't know if I am going to use the full name "Small Business Exclusive" or the initials "SBX" so I would be open to logos that just use one, or both. So, you could just to SBX, or the full name, or both. Either way, remember the X should stand out. If you use both the full name and the initials, you would only need to make it stand out in one or the other.

I could see something simple, focused on the letters and the X. But, I could also see something with a little more energy like having a banner behind it. I am open to both. Maybe the logo is tilted?

I do not need any illustrations or objects...the focus should be the name or the initials. If you want to enhance the logo, do so by playing with the letters, colors, or adding some type of accent or background.

I like the focus of the letters in the King Nguyen, Staxx, TruckO, and FFV logos in the Style Inspiration. I also think the banner look on the Sports Podcon logo could be fun direction to take the logo. The 8th and Willow is also a fun wild card.

UPDATE: Everyone is giving me designs like the FFV logo so far. That is fine, but I would love to see some variety. If you are going to put both the full name, and SBX, it does not have to look exactly like the FFV logo. Also, I would love to see more designs inspired by the other logos. Everything I have gotten so far looks like the FFV. I wouldn't mind seeing something original.

UPDATE 2: I may use the initials SBeX or SBEX instead of SBX...honestly not sure yet. Feel free to try any of the three or all 3 if you'd like. Also open to not having the initials as well and just focusing on the full name.

Getting a lot of designs based on the FFV logo in the Style Inspiration. I would love to see some other directions as well. Maybe move around the location of the words or letters. Or try doing some logos based on the other designs as well. Right now literally every logo is some iteration of the FFV logo. Nothing else!

I am wondering if we should try SBeX or something like that. I may still go with SBX...but wondering if we should add the "e"

Maybe lower case...or maybe all caps SBEX but the X is larger than everything else?

Just an idea to consider and try if anyone wants. Of course, you can also just do the full name without the initials.

After seeing some designs I am leaning one of two directions.

1 - full name, no initials
2 - full name, and SBEX

Hello again, I’m not actually accepting new designs outside of the top five designers. I just need a few more days because I have been traveling so for those of you in the top five I’m still working with just you.

with all due respect, but all the creatives who have made proposals before this indication !! have they worked for nothing ?? still deserve a check I think, the worst thing is to work and the proposals made
they are not even seen !!!
I think she doesn't like working like that too!
clear it's just my impression !!
good choice
