jhayden, that's a good website you got there. did you design it yourself?
I agree. The font and colors contribute to it being difficult to read. From a design standpoint, the 50/50 Web 2.0 style gradient he used went out of design style a few years ago so, to me, it looks out of style before it's had a chance to be put in use.
edit: Missed the date stamp on the photo the first time I looked at it. That explains the Web 2 vibe.
Disregard that web stamp of 2007, every time I replace the batteries in my pos camera it relapses to that date... I didn't change the date... ok I'll post the website on here for everyone to look at the other logos...
No offense, but that specific design is appropriate for the time/date stamp. The designer(s) seems reeeeally gradient-happy in several of those.
26, 29, 9, in that order, for me. Simple, impactful, clean, easy to read, and then there are the over-designed ones with the guy and the spreader. Just too much to quickly take in, which is not a good thing for people driving by. I think the one you featured is easily in my bottom group.
No offense taken!!! I extended the contest another three days. Your right about the quick intake.. But I see 29 and the area i'm in people will think I'm selling rolling rock beer... I like the spreader guy cause its really the only one that without the name it says fertilizer. Great discussion I need this!!!
Made the decision.. thank you for the likes.... it made it easy!!!
my winning designer is gonna pay taxes here in usa and thats beautiful!!!!
I need another logo design evaluation from fellow lawnsiters much more experienced than me in the design world. My main objective from this logo is a full wrap on a white pick up and a billboard on a very busy road in a resort town.
And the entries show why contest sites suck. I swear I've seen half of those logos with a different company name on it.
What's with the name change?
7 months and you're still trying to come up with a logo? Pick a design and get to work. If you're already working, and still just trying to come up with a logo to cover your business focus change, you're wasting valuable brand-building time by getting lost in the details that many might perceive as "playing business" instead of "doing business".
Re: this latest batch, I completely agree with PaperCutter. The vast majority of those are just logo mill clip art that are borderline "design offensive". 45 and 10 are simple, easy to read, and easy to maintain print quality control over. 17, 32, 13, 19, 21, 28, 12, 23, 16, 42, 31, 7, 20, 15, 18, 36, 34, 35 are great examples of offensive, over-"designed", hackneyed, junk.
