Guys, Please Help With Choosing Logo!

Fri Sep 24, 2004 2:20 am

Ok, Im trying to figure out which Logo would be most Eye-catching. this is for a new Jewelry Shop. so can you rank them in order of preference?

1.http://images2.fotopic.net/?iid=yflu3r&outx=600&noresize=1&nostamp=1
2.http://images3.fotopic.net/?iid=yflu3t&outx=600&noresize=1&nostamp=1
3.http://images1.fotopic.net/?iid=yflu36&outx=600&noresize=1&nostamp=1

The Name they chose is "Jew'L" . but Im not really convinced by the name...

Also, if anyone has a new logo to propose, I would greatly appreciate it!

Thanks Folks!

Well, a couple of things. I'm being blunt, but you asked for input. Don't take this personally, it's business:

1. Horrible name
2. The first two logos are annoying because the apostrophe is too low.
3. The third logo is, to me, the most eye catching, however, I can't even begin to explain the weird feeling I got seeing the very arabic-looking font being used to describe Jew'L.
4. If you want help, make it easier for us by putting the links in <> so they actually link to the site.
5. My advice, blow it up, and start over.
6. Good luck

I agree. First change the name. Then work on a new logo.

IMO:
If you want the best of the three: that's number 2:

But you might wanna work on the other two, just like MYT332 said: they look like crap: Arabic look-a-like. And you live in Holland dude, we don't want that  Smile

EDIT:
Logan22L: we were thinking the same about the Arabic style. You posted while I was typing so I didn't saw your post.

Yazoo,

I've designed logos and business cards as a side project for some time now. I'm at work at the moment, but I'll try and come up with some later on tonight for you. Shall I e-mail them to you when I'm done?

Thanks for the Input Guys!

well, the Name is not up to me Actually, so it's just something I have to deal with (and as I said before, I dont like it either)

about the logos, I made the first 2, the second is from another guy, and I thought it looked really cheap and crappy.

Jayce, that would be great if you could email them to me! thanks a lot!

Cheers,

Purple Pride!

Last one is dreadful, no doubt.

Top two, well, the all-black one is best. Quite classy, considering the disastrous name

Are you Jewish? Is the shop for Jewish customers? If not, that's the impression it gave me - slightly bizarre. I'd take that name nowhere.

However, I'd keep the all-black logo (diamond) and re-think the name.

Or how about a very deep blue for the text and a silver-colour diamond?

Who are the people involved in starting the shop? Perhaps the best idea is to use their names, or their names in some bizarre combination.

I'm not sure.

Or an adjective that describes jewellery? Sparkle? Gold? Golden Age? I'm not sure. How upmarket is the shop? Cheap or expensive?

Also, Jewelry is the American spelling, Jewellery the English. Best off without the word, I reckon.

However, I think the black and white logo is classy  Smile

The 3 letters "JEW" seem to stand out an aweful lot. The name appears to be "Jew L" and is not the kind of name I would name anything but a hebrew type font. No offense to anyone but it is kinda odd.

No this is not a "real" shop, but rather a Business School project ( starting and running a real company, in this case, selling jewelry)

the guy who was appointed as "marketing" manager thinks that he's very "creative" (which is definetly not my opinion if you ask me). He's the one who came up with the name (which I didnt approve at all) and also with the 3rd Logo (the arabic/jewish looking one) Im only the appointed Financial manager so I have no business to do with Marketing, but I still think that they did a horrible job with the name and the logo, and Im trying to find ways to improve it, why? well, to SELL!... that goes for the curious...

It is too late but, suggestion for Names?
