    I can see your problem, but the gray just doesn't provide sufficient contrast to the rust-colored circle. Squint your eyes and the two just blend together. A color blind person would see almost no difference....

    Looks like I was writing my post while you were posting your revision, which I think is much better.

    If it were me, I would remove the faint type at the top that duplicates the smaller type....

    Definitely get the deposit up front. Cash, check or credit card if you have the ability. A lot of clients like to pay by credit card so they don't have to pay out cash until that bill comes in....

    I agree with what's already been said. Seamas has made some very good suggestions about hierarchy.



    Then why have you layered all kinds of impenetrable stuff over it, like lines,...

    Based on the client's requests I came up with several options for this logo design, he has narrowed it down to two. Any feedback is greatly appreciated.

    i like the second one the best, but on both it looks like the saw on the 1st one and the cluster of tools on the second one are attempting to form a letter... maybe switch the direction of the brush stroke and put the saw on the other side of the second one?

    the paint brush on the second one, the bristles are kinda lost... the contrast between the bristles, the paint and the handle doesnt seem to be enough (could be how i see it on the screen tho too). i love tho how you incorporated the tools into the name, it really lets the observer know what the company is... i like how the nail is the 'i' too.

    kudos tho! i like the direction your headed in!
    Typos are very important to all written form. It gives the reader something to look for so they aren't distracted by the total lack of content in your writing.

      That is one LONG ASS SCREW!

      I like the first the best; it has the best form and balance. However, I agree with Ang that the hammer and brush(?) look like they're trying to form a V. When I first loaded the page, I saw "Voccasions".

      Overall, I think you can do better.

        Thanks for your critique. I can see what you mean about the tools on the first one. A previous version I had, I was looking at it and seeing a palm tree. I am liking the second one as a whole. There is no real contrast between the paint brush bristles and the stroke of paint, which I had though about but didnt think it was that noticeable and figured it would get lost in most instances. I will take your suggestion and make some revisions. Thanks again.

          lol and its a long ass screw to be screwing in with a screwdriver and not a screw gun. I will work on the arrangement of the tools. Thanks for the feedback.

            The second one, reverse type needs to be much bolder to withstand printing.

              the first one read Voccasions to me

              i think you'd be better off eliminating all of the tools & just using the nail like in the 2nd one (or use the screw driver there) just too much going on for my taste.

              keep us posted.

                  Am I the only person who can't see any image in Post#1?

                  I even tried another PC and it's still blank. I just see the white rectangular page icon with a red cross on it. I tried "show picture" but its still blank.

                    I think the second image with just the nail and the hammer would be a good start. I agree with what the others are saying about there being too many elements!

                      The image in the original post is in CMYK, which is why some might be having trouble viewing it, as not all browsers are able to view CMYK images.

                      RIZE iNK, you might want to replace it with an RGB image so everyone can view the images.
