    Ok, my first attempt at a logo. Its not finished yet but need someone else to look at it, ive been looking at it so long im not sure if I like it anymore. Any tips or modifications/ reworks are welcome. Thanks in advance! BTW Before anyone asks. Services include mowing, spring/fall cleanups, fence row cleanup/removal, drainage ditch cleanup/digout, property cleanup and hauling services, just about anything you would want hauled off, tore down, cleaned up or mowed will be on the dockett.

    It has no "IT" factor to it. Here's what I'd change:

    1) Color - Use contrasting colors to make it pop
    2) Font - That cursive is hard to read IMO
    3) Tag Line - Shorten it up "Custom Property Service", "Property Service Specialist", "Property Maintenance & Hauling"

    That's where I'd start. btw...where's your phone # going to be located on that? Maybe list a web site as well if you have one.

    ur on the right track though......

    Different that is for sure. Are you happy with it? Do you feel that this is going to be something your customers will remember? Do not over think this. Keep it simple, clean. Looks pretty dark too. Those are just my opinions, they do not really mean a lot, what matters is what you think, you have to live with it, and of course pay for it to go on your equipment - LOL

    Thanks for the reply. I started out thinking property service specialist but ended up typing what you see. As far as colors go what is grey here will be a silver/chrome color. What kind of colors do you think? I have one where everything green is red and one where everything green is silver/grey. I used the cursive so it would look classy, Every other font i tried looked too kindergarden I thought. Any ideas on which style would still look professional? Sorry for the questions, just trying to make this right. Oh and phone goes in black box below green banner with slogan.

    I snagged the background from one of those design your logo free sites then manipulated it with mylogomaker and paint.
