I love that Sothern Chandelier Logo you did! I am almost wondering if a baby chandelier could be peaking from the ceiling as you are looking at the door cracked open?

Brandis commented on #71

Thank you Janis!

I like this look:) Can you make the door more elegant with a french handle/ appearance to look like this?

https://images.all-free-download.com/images/graphiclarge/elements_of_door_model_backgrounds_art_vector_571450.jpg

The door to then have a golden glow from the inside?

I definitely need something in the logo to say elegant:)

janisart commented on #71

** added the dark behind the door so that you could tell it was cracked open a little bit.

#70 Maybe something like this?
6 months ago

Brandis commented on #68

Hi Janis!
1.) Can you take the girl away?
2.) Can you move the words in front of the door and add "with Brandis."?
3.) Can you crack the door open a tad?
4.) Can you add a couple of stairs?
5.) Can you add a pink circle around the logo.

Thank you Janis!
6 months ago

Brandis commented on #67

You are right, it doesn't have to be cracked open if she is reaching for it. I think that would only be if I did not have the girl. You are right!
6 months ago

Brandis commented on #67

Can you do all that I said on this one. I think I like the clear writing and distinction between the words and door!

Hi Janis! I am liking the lighter feel to both of the designs you created. I like having the pink in there too! Ok , can we see what it looks like with a girl that is more modern not as Parisian? Still elegant. Confident. Pretty. Fashionable without the purse. A pink accent. Reaching for the door. Can you make the door cracked open a bit. Can you add a few steps?

Thank you so much! I am waiting to get the "zing" for myself and my business as Christian Life Coach and Journal Facilitator:) You are doing such great work. I am sorry I am sooo picky. I am just so foreign to design!
6 months ago

janisart commented on #68

I'll do my best. If there are steps she will need to be further away from the door. Also, would the door be cracked open if she is approaching and reaching for it?

#68 You could even overlap the text on the door to make the logo more concise.

#67 I've worked on this one a bit. Also think the lighter fonts work better with this design. Let me know your thoughts!

Brandis commented on #66

That sounds good. I am really torn between super simple and the original one I liked. Please wait on the is one:-)
6 months ago

Brandis commented on #62

Can you please:
1) Take heart, sun and purse away.
2) Can you use deep pink, white and shimmery gold for color scheme how you see fit concerning lettering, girl, door.

Thank you!

janisart commented on #66

Maybe if I do a light outline around the girl and door, and perhaps add a thin border to tie it all together.

Brandis commented on #66

Thank you Janis! I am simmering here!
6 months ago

janisart commented on #66

#66 I've lightened up the fonts on this one, as well as the colors. I created a new girl, the other one was hard to soften and more high end fashion model-ish. I'm not sure what more I can do, you still have a lot going on in the design.

Thank you!

janisart commented on #3

Okay, let me see what I can do.
6 months ago

Brandis commented on #3

Hi Janis! I feel like I have been too complicated with all of my symbols etc.... I want my brand to be simple.

1.) Can you add a door with stairs. Lady is walking up to the door to open.

2.) Can you take away the purse for the lady. Can you soften her up a bit?

2.) Can you use light and airy complementary colors for the design?

3.) Can you take away the red heart.

Thank you, Janis. I am wanting to lean toward 1 image for branding.

#62 Here's another font option for NEW DAY.
6 months ago

Brandis commented on #61

ok great!

Thank you!
6 months ago

janisart commented on #61

Absolutely. I am going to show you another font similar to the one I am using for New Day. If I make it bolder manually it will not look crisp, it's okay with just one little outline, but if you do more, it loses quality. I can find another one that is bolder you will like.
6 months ago

Brandis commented on #61

This looks great! Can you move up a tad "New Day" so that it is centered between the yellow swoosh and the phrase "Step into a?" Also, can you make " New Day" bolder than Step so that it can be the foundational word?
6 months ago

janisart commented on #61

#61 I was able to make this just a tiny bit bolder by putting a black outline around the letters. I can look at other fonts if you like, I have quite a few.
6 months ago

janisart commented on #60

It only comes in that regular style, let me try one thing that may work.
6 months ago

Brandis commented on #60

Hi Janis!

Can you use the same font from the ranked one and make it bold or is that not possible? I like the sun!
6 months ago

Brandis commented on #59

Janis! This logo is really working for me! Can you make New Day bolder and the sun a little bit bigger?

Thank you!

Hi Janis!

I really feel like I am narrowed down and close to making a decision. Can you please make this girl all black. Red skirt, black purse and 2 small vertical black buttons on her skirt starting at her waist.

Thank you!!! Goodnight:-)

Brandis commented on #57

Thank you Janis!

All of these decisions are so hard! Can you make her open the door. Can you make the purse red. Can you add a sweater on her arm or something like almost to where she looks like she is wearing a short cardigan? All of your work is greatly appreciated!

Janis,

What would your original girl from design #3 look like in this design?
6 months ago

janisart commented on #55

#55 I drew a silhouette close to your references. We cannot use the exact pose, they must be original.
6 months ago

janisart commented on #46

Yes, that is exactly what it takes. It is your vision and you will know it when you see it. It's a fun process!

Thank you! It is interesting how my vision changes as we move forward but I believe it is getting more and more clear!

#53 Something like this?

janisart commented on #46

This one looks odd without the face...I'll show you.
6 months ago

janisart commented on #52

I'll send this over with no face. Again, the body angle makes it look weird to have her hand on her hip.
6 months ago

janisart commented on #52

#52 Here's the same design as the first ranked one with the changes you asked for. It did not look right to have her hand on her hip at that angle.
6 months ago

Brandis commented on #46

I really like this one. I hope I am explaining myself correctly:-)
1) Girl, exactly the same.
2) black silhouette
3) hand that is on hat, on hip instead.
4) pink purse
5) no hat
6) no face

Thank you so much!

1) Same stance.
2) Same silhouette.

5) Left hand on hip instead of hat:-)

Brandis commented on #46

Hi! Thank you so much! I like how the sun and restructuring of the words came out:-) Another consideration is the girl.

A few changes:
1) I would like the girl to be in all black with colored purse, skirt and wide brim hat, the fashion model like larger hats.

2) The hat can slightly be covering her face. One doesn’t have to see her whole face. Emphasis on holding the big fashion model hat with confidence!;-)

Let’s see how that looks. I am bad with colors. This girl represents confidence, happiness, boldness, a new start, chic ness, love.......

I appreciate all of your hard work!!!!!

3. I would like to emphasize the phrase "New Day" over the word "Step." So, can we make the "Step Into" a small font that sits on top of the phrase "New Day," where "New Day" is a larger/bolder font at the bottom and sticks out and is more noticeable upon a first look.

Brandis commented on #45

Hi! Aww I love the heart in the word step! I think this is moving in the right direction, but here are a few changes for your consideration:
1. Right now the lady seems "snobby." I'd like to make her look happy and carefree. For example, have her head turned to look out (as in the previous version), smiling, with a parisan hat, and with her right hand holding the brim of the hat with confidence.
2. On the right side of the logo, above and to the right of the "tep" in the word, "Step," Please add a subtle, almost faint sun, or a portion of a sun, so that the logo expresses the concept of the lady "stepping into a new day," with the sun representing the new day.

Thank you for all of your time and effort on this!

Hi! I’m feeling that the girl needs to exude more confidence. Can you keep the heart in some way without her holding on the a balloon. She may appear too young and I want her to be mature, chic and bold?
6 months ago

Brandis commented on #14

Withdrawn

Yes, I like this. I like the glow of the door. I feel like what is missing is still a visible simple sun like presence. I also like the swoop you have with your 2nd design that ties it all together. I feel like it needs to be tied all together:-)
