Hey Guys-

My company name is Metropro Lawn Care. *I have seen the work you guys have submitted and I am impressed.

We need a logo design that is simple. *Our business cards, T shirts and the truck will all sport the same logo.

I am open to any design. * I prefer the colors used in XRay's M&T Lawncare logo.

*I say three colors max - to control multi-color printing costs.

Thanks in advace for your suggestions!!!!!!!!!

Sorry,

I guess I should have added that I tried the online order form and was directed to a toll free 888 number but noone answered or the calls went to vmail.

Guess I'll try again

Here are a couple of threads that I initially liked:

X-ray's colors in submission #1:

http://www.gophergraphics.com/forum....04;st=0 (http://www.gophergraphics.com/forum/cgi-bin/ikonboard.cgi?act=ST;f=1;t=404;st=0)

Tiger's 3 leaf icon in submission #157

http://www.gophergraphics.com/forum....60;st=0 (http://www.gophergraphics.com/forum/cgi-bin/ikonboard.cgi?act=ST;f=1;t=460;st=0)

I think I'd prefer the logo to be more of a simple icon with the name next to it and maybe the by line beneath it. No borders surrounding the entire image or anything like that.

Maybe placing the 3 leaf image on a contrasting background shape with the name next to it sans background like tiger's #162?

Hmmmmm.........

Niiiiiiice!!!

I think my best bet is to drop the lawn care all together and just concentrate on the name.

Let's try #313 w/o Lawn care and Mtropro oas one color

#315 is a nice approach. Try the same style except make name one color and use the leaf combination similar to #313

Here is another that I liked:

http://www.gophergraphics.com/forum....0;st=20 (http://www.gophergraphics.com/forum/cgi-bin/ikonboard.cgi?act=ST;f=1;t=460;st=20)

#298- Let's try a large leaf or combo of leaves in the style of the tree in this submission with the Metropro next to it in one color

I am impressed!!!!

How about #320 after adding striping lines similar to soupy post for Creative Lawn Care.

As it is, the logo is kinda limiting against future service offerings, If you can add the stripes, we can start wrapping things up.

Almost.

I was thinking that the simplified tree icon could be placed against the stripes as if viewing a nicely manicured lawn.

Soupy's (Creative landscaping) lines would work perfectly behind your tree Tiger.

Can you make it happen?

Let's try these few variations of the same logo #337:

1. the striping image on the left of logo

2. the striping fills up a semi-circle with Metropro centered on the horizon

3. same as #2 with the tree icon on the horizon with Metropro

4/5. same as #2 and #3 using the tree in place of the "t" in metropro (with tree icon slightly before the horizon to give some depth)

6. same as #2 with tree icon on left of Metropro just short of the horizon (to give the feeling of depth)

Here is my feeble attempt at explaining the look I am speaking of. http://www.gophergraphics.com/forum/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif

The striping lines would be inside a half circle.

The tree would be placed where the "#" is- just short of the straight edge of the half circle

Metropro would be just right of the tree just above the straight edge of the half circle

I think the logo would look better if the tree appeared to be a part of the landscape- which is illustrated with the striping

[B]THAT'S IT !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Now for the final touch. Bring the tree down into the striping. Make the tree a tad bit larger so that Metropro appears to be slightly farther back into the image.

And we are done....Whooooo hoooo. Thanks Tiger!!!!

Tiger, thanks again-

On Monday, I am gonna find a full service printer to do my business cards and the vinyl graphics for the truck. (99 Ram http://www.gophergraphics.com/forum/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/rock.gif )

Maybe T-shirts and sweatshirts too

Will you give me some good visuals that will help me with the layout on each?

Oh yeah, please send me the necessary files for the logo.

Great work and just a few days turnaround http://www.gophergraphics.com/forum/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/rock.gif

Hi Maal6225,

How are you going to be putting the logo on your truck? With vinyl lettering or with magnetic signs? Or maybe another way? Are you going to be using vinyl tape for accents?

maal6225
11-28-2003, 06:26 PM
Yes, Vinyl Lettering

The accents sound good. Ive seen the images you guys have done with other customer's trucks and I think I will defer to your suggestions.

This goes ditto for the cards. I will most likey follow your advice.

Thanks

Steve

Hi Maal6225,

Are you going to be putting the lettering on yourself or having a sign shop do it?

maal6225
11-28-2003, 06:58 PM
Definitely a pro shop.

Note my previous attempts at graphics design work http://www.gophergraphics.com/forum/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif

If you have a digital camera you could post your truck image.
