    Logo Design Help


    I am embarking on my own web/print design venture and am playing with some logo ideas.

    My focus is websites as business tools, not art projects, and as much as I like the funky designer type look it's not who I am so I am looking to convey:

    - professionalism
    - maturity/wisdom
    - conservatism

    Anyway, I have created some logos and would love some feedback (which one(s) you like/hate and why, etc).

    If you have any thoughts about direction or changes I would love that as well.

    I've thrown them up on the back of my personal site:

    Envision Design Solution Logo Ideas

    NOTE: This file: eds-logo-11.jpg has extraneous circles on the left, just ignore them.
    Suddenly nothing happened.

    In my head I narrowed it down to:
    #2,
    #23
    #26
    Ehhh, #33 can be worked with.

    Good stuff.

    Thanks. I like #2 also, but am trying to follow "the rules" and not use a photo or a fade, which is where all the others came from :-)

    Ah, okay. Well that should be removed from the list


    Well I'm going to choose this one,
    #23 - http://www.chrisshockley.info/logos/eds-logo-23.jpg

    It seems to meet all of your needs best.

    I don't care what anybody else says, I loved eds-logo-01-b.jpg. I'm aware that it probably doesn't scale very well, but the other logos were boring compared to it.

    I like a bunch of the examples you gave. In fact, I think eds-logo-33.jpg could be really cool if you market yourself well.

    Otherwise eds-logo-30.jpg was my favorite. I think it's all three of the things you were looking for: mature, professional, and conservative.

    Looking at your site, the logo looks great. Goes very well with the colors.

    However, I don't like that your site stretches to fill the screen. My monitor is 1680x1050 (larger than most visitors') and there's a ton of empty space. You might consider limiting your content to about 1000px wide so that viewers with large screen resolutions aren't negatively affected.

    i must say my favourites are 30 / 32. professional clean and simple. simple variations could be put on the sites/ designs you make e.g. a pure black version .

    2 is too samey. its been done many times before.
    23 - Dated . Looks like one of the old school logos
    26 - I dont think the font works with your criteria

    your logo is suppose to be for some design solution company n it has no real design in itself.

    33
    I like number 2, but it can't be used, so i'd say 33.

    wat?
