View Full Version : logo contest

I'm looking for a logo that will present an up-scale Residential General Contracting company. *The company name is: Morrissey Custom Contracting. *I'd like the logo to be more of a classic design - monogram in style. *The initials inside of an oval with the "M" being the largest letter (in the center) with a smaller "C" on each side. When put onto a sign, the oval (with the monogram) would be centered and aproximately half of the oval would break out of the top straight edge to form a curve along the top of the sign. *The sign would then have a post on each side with finnials on top (for a more classy-elegant look/feel). .. *Maybe a line beginning on the left of the monogram continuing across as it outlines the top of the oval over to the other side. (from left to right a continual outline on top) I'd like the colors to be more classic as well. (2 colors... no more than 3?) *Maybe a steel blue with gray or burgandy and gray... or a deep green combo?? *Under the monogram I'd like the logo to read: Morrissey Custom Contracting and Homes. Possibly with Morrissey being the largest on top of Custom Contracting... and Homes(on the bottom/last line) And last, but not least, a single shamrock somewhere on the logo... doesn't have to be a major feature!!!http://www.gophergraphics.com/forum/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif *Thank you for all of your help in bringing this idea to life!! *You all came HIGHLY recommended, and I hope to pass along the same satisfaction!

Thank you... #106 is nice - I love the shamrock style. *Can you rotate the oval up into a vertical position? *Also, the oval doesn't have to be in full color. *A colored outline of the shape would be fine. *If possible - can you include the business name? *Maybe frame the oval with "Morrissey" around the top, and "Custom Contracting" around the bottom. *Thanks - can't wait to see!

Nice - #587! *I really like the way you incorporated all of the company name info. *I also like the more formal font in the monogram, but the "m" doesn't look "M-mmy" enough - maybe a different font? Try a different font on the business name underneath too... I like the layout, but the lettering is a little too plain. *One last thing: I like the way you worked color in... maybe change the blue to a more classic navy with a more pale gray??? *Hope this helps - you guys are great!!

Great!! *You are both getting so close!! *#107 looks great - could you make the oval shape tighter? (not so round - the letters in the monogram can be closer too) The "Morrissey" could be a little larger, and change the word "houses" to "Homes"... could you work some deep green in?? *Maybe in the shamrock or outline (2 different shades - 1 for outline - one for shamrock??) *You are so close!!!
#44 - I really like yours too!! *Can you tighten the oval and bring the font into a more upright-less slanted print style? *Maybe a change in the shamrock style - less inflated looking?? *Great on including all of the info!!

Here are a few ideas.

You guys are doing a great job!! *This is getting REALLY difficult because I see a few I like!!! * Sorry there was a delay on my part... didn't realize you'd completed this second page!!
I really like #45!! *I'm waiting for my husband to get home so he can take a look. *I really like #108 too - fantastic!! *Odesigns, do you think we should put the outline of a home behind the monogram instead of the shamrock??? *I'd love your opinion - maybe the shamrock on each side of "Morrissey"?? *Thank you all for your creations!! *GREAT WORK!

WOW!!!!! Matt, we LOVE 071, 072, and 073!!!! AWESOME job!!!!! Can you show me 071 and 072 with more of a classic shamrock?? You are SO ON!!!!!!! Thanks guys!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I like it with the shamrock, its diffferent.
04-15-2004, 06:56 PM
Thanks, Odesign... we agree - the shamrock is an eye-catcher - nice!! Of the two, we prefer #108.
04-15-2004, 07:02 PM
Odesign, is there any way you could change the color of the shamrock?? Maybe a deeper green - I'm not sure I like the shade in #108. I hope it's not too difficult - if so, alter the colors as needed to make it work more easily. THANK YOU!!

how is this green?
Thanks! good to hear you like the ideas.
Here are the two logos with a new shamrock. I also included an example of what the logo might look like on a sign.

WOW!!! *You all have kept me on my toes today! *Thank you for all of your creative input and time!! *What an exceptional operation you have - I look forward to sharing my new-found website with family and friends. *Many thanks!
Matt, a.k.a. MGZ... we've chosen your design, but if you'd do ONE last favor... would you put #074 on a sign just like you did w/ #075?? *We're torn between the color choices!!! *THANK YOU!!
Have a good night, all!
Here you go...let me know what you think.

Looks great, thanks! *We're going to go with #074. *I'm going to be away from my computer until about 12:30. *I'd like to order truck magnets and vinyl for the trailer too. *Would like to talk to you about signs (?) as well, so I'll write back when I return.
Thanks again, Matt. *You've done a great job creating the appearance we were striving for! *Have a good morning. *Rose

Hi Matt, *I'm back. *I just called, and spoke w/ Mike re: truck magnets or window applications - he's going to have Steve return my call tomorrow to try to get an order in. *Do you guys offer signs too?? *If not, I'm sure I can find someone locally without a problem. *I'm going to be using this logo for business cards, vehicle advertising, signage, company shirts, and our website... My neighbor recommended "Ai", jpeg, and gif (300 dpi & 150 dpi). *How does this work from here?? I'm not very computer-savvy... help! Thanks!
You can send me an email by clicking on the envelope icon on the bottom of this post. I will reply to that email with all the files you asked for. Steve can help you get started on all the other items. I look forward to doing the designs.
As far as signs go...I can certainly design them for you and send you files that you can take to a local sign shop. You should talk to Steve about whether or not we can have them made for you as well.
Thanks again! we'll "talk" again soon.
actually....here is my email. Looks like you can't mail me from the post.
