Default Check out my latest Logos

After relocating I am starting up again and have redone some things. I am going to start 2 businesses this time and if all goes well...... well all I can say is that the stuff I am rolling in better not smell.... LOL

Any how I have come up with 2 names

Xtreme Property Maintenance and I already have the domain xtrememaintenance.com and the other is Xtreme Communications

I have attached the logos.... Tell me what you think?

With the maint company I am in Montana so that is the reason for the mountains.

On the communications company.... how much more extreme can you get than communicating with aliens? LOL

The other is a play on the word Xtreme being that it is a company that will service phone systems and cabling, thus the communications part.

Well those are space ships. how much more extreme can you get for communicating? LOL Maybe I should put an alien head on the first ship?

Communication however can mean a host of things, it would have to be more specific, structured wiring, etc...

I get your point. There are a lot of phone and cabling companies that either are ****** communications or ******* networks and they both service phone systems and structured cabling. Go figure

I would rather do more phone system work as that is more repetitive. I already have a distributorship for a system out of Canada and not it is not Nortel.

Here I added the alien.... LOL

What if you had a graphic of a satellite dish or an antenna with kind of a broadcasting wave from it?

Like these?

Keep us updated on your move Pat and how things are going, as I recall from our email exchanges you were getting into retaining walls, I wish you the very best!

Will do Andy. So far no retaining walls but have done lots of tongue and grove on log home porch ceilings and installed laminate and hardwood floors.

After some thinking again last night and listening to input, I have changed the logo design. Going to set up one LLC with 2 DBA's of Xtreme Property Maintenance and Xtreme Communications.

Now about the logos.... I came to the conclusion last night that they really were kind of korny and at least the maintenance one too busy. Like they say Keep it simple stupid. If you look at all the well known logos, they all have one thing in common. They are based on the text of the logo... ie. coke, ibm, at&t, hp, compaq, pepsi just to name a few so here are my new logos. I have one for each DBA and one for the LLC. The kicker is that I can use the LLC logo on all shirts for both DBA's

I love T & G ceilings and walls, my woodworking shop is all T & G and when I built my home 21 years ago I had 2" double T & G, 8" made for what is the ceiling of the first floor and floor for the second, it rests on 4 X 8's I had made and one 36.5' 4 X 12 that runs the entire length of the house. As soon as it was KD I treated it right away and have almost no cracks.

The floor took quite a beating from the kids over the years and I covered with hardwood laminate, cheap, easy and looks great. On the main floor it's all hardwood, the old fashion kind as I don't like the lips in the factory hardwood flooring.

All the best with your ventures, it can be really tough starting out in a new area but it sounds like you will do well and you have contacts.
