OK Guys,

I would like a new logo designed for my business. I want it to be simple, classy, and convey an upscale image. I think 3 or 4 colors would be ample. The colors should be "landscapey" in nature. Nothing bright. I will attach my current logo.

P.S. My trucks are white.
P.S.S Who do I give my money to?

Hi Guys!

I like Tiger #202,224, & 90. I don't know if I'm married to an enclosed logo. I want it to convey "Class"
Try to use Garamond italic and include my phone # 610-777-9440. Also, "Residential & commercial" I'm sure you guys will do great. Please bear with me.
P.S. I thought theattachment was kind of interesting, But I'm not married to it.

Hey Chris...

Here are two for starters. I'll try to post some more tommorrow morning. The second in this post could include an alternate phone # or web address.

Sorry they have such rough edges..thats just in the post not the source files.

Thanks,

Matt

Matt.
I like the color scheme in the first one, but I think it may be too high for a truck door and would probably cost a fortune to have lettered. I think the second one is a bit too whimsical. Maybe your ideas without a tree? Our business is 40% property maintenance and 60% landscape installation and hardscaping if that helps. Thanks

Hi Chris,

Sorry for the fuzzy appearance of these, but it is only do to the resizing of the logos for posting.

Odesigns - Too wide for truck door, maybe more compact.
Tiger - Can you combine #527 & #526 w/ pinecone? *Loose pinecone and add leaves from #527. Also, bring C&G closer and make "&" smaller. Use ",LLC" at end of landscaping & add phone #.
MGZ - #45 Make "landscaping" italic and somehow incorporate leaf from Tiger #527 if possible.
BVD - Not really seeing anything that excites me. Sorry, maybe try something with an intertwined C&G.
Sunil4u - I don't like #3, I do like #2, but it looks almost exactly like one of my competitors. I do like the simplicity of your designs and how you are not afraid to overlap type & pics.

Keep trying guys everything looks so good it is hard to decide. *I hope I am giving you enough direction. *I am very picky, so please bear with me. *Thanks again.

P.S. We ho alot of hardscaping. Can something be done with that?

Odesigns - That is much better. Any other ideas?

Sunil4u - I don't like the fountain and the brick design looks a little too "Big & Blocky" can you thin it up? The pond design is nice, but ponds are a very small part of our business. Keep up the great work.

Thanks guys

Hi Chris! Thinned up the bricks in the logo, and rearranged text and the plant. Will submit more concepts soon!

Chris,

How are you feeling about colors at this point? When I added the leaf I felt some green would be appropriate but I can go back to the burgundy/gray thing as well. Also, you mentioned liking the brighter fall themed scheme as well. Let me know if you would like to see any of my designs in different color combos.

Thanks,

MattZ

MGZ - Can you try some different color options? I like the green, now can you do #47-#52 in Green/Gold and Green/Brown and Green/Ochre and Green/Pumpkin?http://www.gophergraphics.com/forum/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif
Can you also make it C&G landscaping, LLC

Tiger - I'm still not sure. Can you eliminate the spaces between the C&G in your last group? Thanks

Others - I'll be back to you by morning

Looks Great Guys! *Thanks

Chris

Odesigns & BVD - I don't think that those designs will work well on a truck. Looking for something more "corporate"

MGZ & Tiger - Are you there? LOL

MGZ - You are the winner I like #53 as it sits! Can you send me the logo in pdf, gif and jpeg formats and also the same logo in all black in the same formats? Great job!

All others - You guys are super talented. It was a very difficult decision, but MGZ hit it on the head. Thanks again to everyone. This was a great experience and I will spread the word about the great services that you offer.
