    It's a good start. I like the middle one how it has highlights in the text, but I think the drop shapes are way too big. Have you considered working with candy stripes?

    Yes.

    Personally, I would do this in Photoshop so that I had more control of the final colour. Photographing colours can result in differences...

    I think simple is important. A texture will help and maybe thickening up the font?

    You've laid down only the freshest gradients and stock splotch decorations. But where are the drop shadows and lens flares? You can't have a great logo without those.

    But seriously, the bottom left one has potential. Tweak the font a little, get rid of the gradients and it will be pretty striking. Color it sage green for added effect.

      Here they are simplified and put into black and white.

        I still think the bottom right one is the best of the group. The edges of the A & G are hard to decipher, spacing them out might help.

          Agreed. I prefer the bottom right.

            I think the bottom right is the one that you should focus on and try to improve. The other seem a little bit too confusing. The readability on the others is not great. If I didn't know, beforehand, what the word said it would take me a couple seconds to figure it out.

            People shouldn't have to look at your logo and try to guess what the word is.

              There are really some nice things going on in the bottom right logo. That said, the typography isn't as legible as it could be. If this were strictly a word mark, a stylized typographic treatment would be more warranted. However, the brush and its roots provide the visual interest, so if it were me, I'd give the type a more straight-forward and conservative treatment.

              Just one other thing, now that I think about it. With a word like sage, I'd expect the imagery to be that of a sage, like a sage brush or the herb. The tree in the top logos definitely isn't a sage. And the brush in the bottom right logo isn't exactly a sage brush, but it could be with a few modifications.

                The two at the bottom left are quite interesting, and have an almost ambigram like quality to them. The readability is hampered a bit by the spacings being very tight, and the strong verticals.

                The bottom right is the strongest conceptually, however it's very busy at the moment and could be simplified a lot without reducing the strength of the concept at all. Like <b> said, it would work great if the plant actually resembled a sage plant.

                  Appreciate the advice. Ill work on using a more legible font, and trying to incorporate a sage brush. I've had trouble finding a font where the back and front of the A and G are both straight lines. If they are not straight the concept seems to fall apart. Ill keep working on it.

                    The bottom right one has some really small detail that will get lost at smaller sizes or in certain printing methods. I would simplify it.

                      This is partially why the bottom left version is stronger IMO, plus it kind of looks like knuckles. It's right between a word mark and an icon, it's still legible but you see the shape first then the letters.
                      Design is not decoration.
