  • Logo Review for New Online Company

    Hello All--

    I'm new here and not a graphic designer by trade. I have an idea for an online company that I want to validate without spending lots of money -- so I'm just going to mock up something attractive and get it online. If it is successful, I'd like to hire a real designer to cement the brand.

    That said, I've come up with a simple logo design. Any thoughts or ideas for improvement?

      I like it! I LOVE that color. It's vibrant and modern and unique -- reminds me of a color my dad would use for fishing things. (Whatever those things are called.)

      I don't really know exactly what your business is about just from looking at this, but it does say "digital" to me.

      Question -- is this a font that you've modified? There's something slightly off about the "s" and the "c" -- I want to make them a bit less perfect and more like the rest. Does that make sense?
      You can fool some of the people all the time, and those are the ones you want to concentrate on. --GWB

        Thanks for the feedback, EC! I really appreciate it. The color took a LONG time to find, so I'm glad it comes across well.

        This is a font that I modified slightly. I changed the kerning of all the letters, and I modified the "i" and the "t" quite a bit. But, I didn't change the "s" or the "c." Maybe I should tweak those to make them a bit more imperfect. Nice thought!

        The company is online based. It is a monthly subscription service -- each month members are mailed two plays by an emerging playwright. The mailing also includes information about the playwright, interviews, etc. And, each month we partner with a theatre somewhere in the US that is producing that work to provide insight into how it is produced (i.e. production photos).

          I think a "real designer" could definitely work with what you have here. It's always good when a client gives an idea of what they're looking for and what they are trying to accomplish in mockups. Kudos on that!

          As far as the color schemes, I definitely prefer the first over the second. Mostly because I don't understand the reasoning behind differentiating colors in the P and D. Definitely like the vibrant color, though.
