    I agree. My friend is a graphic designer and he's going to make up some stuff for me. Haha your analogy is funny and makes sense. Ill relay the info to my friend and see what he can design. Ill see what I can do with the FAQ page, thats a good idea to word it differently and some different text sizes. Thanks

    what about this? I think the words landscaping and snow removal are added in on the bottom it ties it together better.

    Those aren't gray hairs, they're off-blond.

    Anyhow, to the latest logos... you want a professional result, you hire a professional. That's what we tell our clients, right? I think your buddy is well-intentioned but fighting above his weight class. Way above.

    Completely agree. Anytime I see new logo/design mocks using heavy gradients, I cringe. One great thing about the advent of mobile, and the accompanying "flat" design, is that it's banishing gradients to the nether.

    Son & Snow, if you tighten up the font spacing (literally), bringing it in closer, losing the italicization, and going with complimentary, flat color O's of a sun and snowflake, I think you'll find yourself on the right track. You could also do the same, with two levels, left-aligned. The son and snow, lowercase, son on top the snow, leaves you with the space above the "w" for the ampersand. Plenty of directions to go with it. Like I said, it would be a breeze for a graphic designer to do.

    I had a local graphic designer help me with my logo. She charges just $30 an hr which I think is a bargain. I'm thinking you could use some help. Something looks off to me. Maybe too many colors.

    thanks, I do plan on seeing a professional If need be. $30 an hour isn't bad at all
