I normally don't go this far off brief, but the thing is, I've been thinking lately about becoming a coach and have been researching what's out there in training and accreditation. This could very well mean I'm your demographic. If so, I am offering an unsolicited opinion. A mortarboard in the logo would not inspire ME to investigate further. It just doesn't seem serious enough. Not that MY offering here is all that exciting, but it's a departure point. There's a heckuvalotta flimflammery in the coaching biz - and new age hoo-hah and anything that doesn't hit me, personally, as serious and responsible would, quite frankly, turn me off big time. That said, your sample website is very sensible and down to earth. Your logo should amplify that. On the other hand, perhaps I'm not your demographic. I dunno. My two cents' worth.

#37 - LOVE this!! Wondering if we could see it with a less-cursive font on thoe word "coach". Really like this concept with the startburst representing winning!

Hi again - we love this one #41 - you've completely captured what we were trying to articulate. And, may I ask the question - would it catch your eye and would it make you want to find out more?

I *think* it would - it is an improvement (for me) over the mortarboard concept - but as you can see, I am still trying to button it down further to make it more "serious" while still keeping the "fun" bit. So I'm still pondering the problem. More will be coming for you to look at.

#44 is anything BUT button-downed - but I had a wild idea and so I went with it. Ha!

#45 & #46 *is* more serious. I'm thinking I like them best, but you tell me...?

#44 actually looks a little angry to me - maybe the color?

I like #45 and #46 both, but think I like a slightly stronger font for the "Coach Academy" letters? What I really like in all your designs is the "bursting" effect - it conjures an image of someone breaking through the ceiling, of success. I would never have thought of anythign like that, but my partner and I both love it.

The fact that you are considering coaching yourself gives you some very unique perspective on this concept - really glad you jumped in here.

#50 - I think it is the "!" that we don't like on this one. The colors are catchy, though - like the bold blue.
