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!!

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!

Thanks, Odesign... we agree - the shamrock is an eye-catcher - nice!! Of the two, we prefer #108.

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!!

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.

Thanks,

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!

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!

Hello Rosemary...

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.
