Logo critique

Zergo's picture

Hey everyone, just curious what you guys think, or would do different with this logo? I really want to have a professional looking logo, so if you have a critique, I want to hear it! :)

I think, it looks very good. Nice work!

It's very generic.

I agree, I actually kind of wanted to do more of a wordmark as opposed to a logo. Any suggestions, anyone, on what I can do to spice it up a bit more?

I actually played a bit and came up with a different design. I used Whitney for the font, maybe there's something more suitable?

Also, what logo looks best?

That mark also doesn't fit with the type choice. Is this a real company? It sounds so generic.

What are the marks supposed to represent?

@aluminum
It's a random shape. I was trying to think of something a bit more creative with meaning behind it, and I was drawing a blank.

@penn
I also agree that the mark and the font don't quite seem to match up. Any suggestions on that?

If this is a real business, you need to hire a designer!

I assumed the first one was an arrow pointing to the Southeast and made out of pixels. Guess not.

Actually, that was pretty much the intent with the original logo, it's just the second one that I made that didn't really have a meaning.

I would love to hire a designer, however it's a small startup and thats one expense I'm not sure I can afford at this point.

Thanks so much for all your feedback though! I really appreciate it! :)

You have to look at it as an investment. A decent logotype and branding guidance will pay off in increased income and help make your start-up more viable. The hours you’ll spend designing this * your hourly rate could easily be better spent with a professional.

@frode - It really depends on the nature of the startup. If they have a need to appeal to random public and to form a specific company image, then - sure, the logo is certainly important. But if the company merely services a narrow niche on the market and relies on its sales for business, then the logo does not really matter; a membership in a proper golf club does :)

I'm not sure this business covers either end of the spectrum you've put forward apankrat.
