    As far as the OP's Logo: I do see improvement in that it is simpler and has fewer elements. The part that does confuse me is what is the name of the business. "Logos" or "UnforgettableLogoDesign.com"? Is it strange if ".com" is part of the company name?

    As far as the other famous logos and not having a visual element that ties to what is being sold... I often think of Coca-Cola with it's "wave". I always think of that wave as flowing liquid, such as a soda being poured into a glass.

        Hmm I was taught the golden arches were fries, never questioned it... that's disappointing. They do ambiguously resemble them if not intentional.


        Anyway if you remove the color wheel or the stars you'll have a passable logo, though pretty generic, hard to scale down and reproduce. The stars seem to be distorted in a way that wouldn't follow their perspectives. Is the U in the tagline squished? The tagline address is pretty boring, and forgettable.... seems tacked on as an afterthought. I don't get why "logos" is in an old timey western signage looking typeface, or if there was any consideration with that... for me thats a pretty specific style of type used for a specific effect..

          Gradients gone; beginning to simplify:

          There is no tagline. its a domain I've registered and reserved for the future when I'm ready.
          It won't be this month or this year! lol but someday!

          As for the font, I was following a poster's advice and trying
          something simpler, that's all!
          No, the "U" is not squished, althou I agree it does look out of place.

            The gradients are not gone. The tagline... the extra line of text advertising your website whatever you want to call it...

            adding that crown is the complete opposite of simplifying... did you even create it?

              my suggestion is to stop adding elements such as the colour spurts, the crown etc and focus on playing with the 'Logos' part i'm still seeing Logs and its quite distracting...

                But then it wouldn't be unforgettable, silly.

                  Negative feedback is a waste of time? You really believe that? If so, you're in the wrong field. Good luck.

                    Not trying to be negative but you've posted a lot of revisions to not have much time for revisiting. Maybe try replacing 'Logos' with 'Unforgettable' that's really the key word your trying to communicate not logos. It should also line up with the tagline Logos.com...

                      Thank you Cosmo for the positive suggestion. It's appreciated and thought provoking
                      Try a new direction, the road less travelled... Re-read some of the advice in this thread. Digging deeper is thinking harder, researching more, exercising as many options as possible before committing.

                      In my professional opinion, you've kind of taken yourself off at the knees with the name. I'm not saying the name sucks, I'm just saying it's a difficult one to represent with an image. For example, if you were playing Pictionary and you had to draw "unforgettable". What would you draw that would be recognizable enough to other people as being "unforgettable"?

                      This is why I would consider creating a wordmark without myriad of distracting elements. Which, as mentioned previously, will not transfer to a bunch of other mediums without having to be altered. For the detail issues, draw your logo with a black sharpie, any detail you can draw with a sharpie will hold up at small sizes.

                        @vectorzomby, I converted all the gradients to solid colors. the highlight is just a white eclipse I blurred. What do you see that is still gradient?

                        Yes I created the crown learning the pen tool in illustrator last semester. worked hard, but it was fun! I'd been intimidated by illustrator for years so to me this was a big accomplishment.

                        then I created 2 others colorful assignments, but I had photos to use as guidelines to start before making the design my own . one was for a writing instrument and other was for transportation. here goes:

                        .

                          Those are very nice illustrations! The first one has a good balance busy and whitespace.

                          Another tip for your logo, I'm sure it's already been mentioned, but create it in black and white only and do not include greys. Like binary it's 1 or 0.

                            I think I need a more specific adjective. What I meant to say was Mean feedback is a waste of time and that goes for ANY field!

                            The mean attitude in just a few posts drowns out any constructive advice offered. I've come here to learn, but it seems some people are so experienced they've forgotten what's its like to know nothing.

                            @Fd.ini: I'm at ground level here, so I thank you very much for the kind suggestion to use the word "unforgettable"! I heard you! I thought of using the word while listening to a Nat King Cole song of the same name. Creating something "unforgettable" is my long-term goal!

                                Did I offend you in some way? Was it my "no time" comment I used to illustrate that how much time you actually have directly relates to how committed/how badly you want something?
