  • Thanks for the feedback, I'll work on it some more. thanks!
  • Lets try my other idea...
  • Thanks so much for the custom font. That is really wonderful. Needs a little something... The first thing that popped into my head (and I have no idea why) was a little person... even a stick person, sliding down the slope of the "F". Like, having a super good time! Here is an example: http://www.istockphoto.com/file_thumbview_approve/6857747/2/istockphoto_6857747-playing.jpg Maybe a second little person at the top waiting to go down or something. We would want it to look over exaggerated... I mean, this has got to be the BEST damn time EVER on that slide. No features on the characters... just all black. I hope that makes sense. Thanks so much for your work =) Jessica
  • Hummm.... Maybe the face needs to be at the tail end instead and can you make the "F" a capital letter please? Thanks so much! =)
  • This is going in a different direction, but is a beautiful logo. It looks sort of like a wing (flapples... I get it!) Can you change the reds to a more orange color please? Thanks so much =)
  • OOOOoooo... Looks good! Can you make the font larger and the face smaller? I still want the name to be the more prominent item in the logo. Thanks so much =)
  • Okay! This is starting to really get me excited! I love the way the orange color is darker at the top then the bottom of the letters. Can you make that contrast a little more noticeable? Just a bit lighter on the bottom and I think we would be good. As for the little guy hiding behind the "F", great idea. Let's work on that a little.... 1. Get rid of the stick. Although it made me laugh, we are not going to beat our customers (well, maybe the bad ones). 2.Make the face a bit more noticeable. Here is a drawing to give you a idea of what I mean: http://www.istockphoto.com/file_thumbview_approve/706139/2/istockphoto_706139-bad-guy-is-watching-you.jpg The guy in this picture looks super scary and I am not looking for that specific look. I just like how he is peaking around the corner. 3. Can you add a cheesy disguise? Like the top one of these: http://www.istockphoto.com/file_thumbview_approve/706139/2/istockphoto_706139-bad-guy-is-watching-you.jpg The idea is the guy looking around the "F" is in a bad disguise... funny you know? You can even make the disguise overly big.. or falling off on one side. So he looks a bit idiotic. I hope this is easy to understand. Let me know if it doesn't make sense... Thanks so much =)
  • Thanks so much for the revision. This logo has become a bit too plain now. Can you go back to the original (with the packages in the middle) and make the gifts and font more 3D. I would like the logo to pop off the page. Right now it is very flat. Thanks so much. =)
  • Thanks so much for the revision. I can see that I didn't give you enough direction before. I apologize for that. It still sort of looks like a dog rubbing up against the "F". How about a mouth a little more like this picture: http://www.istockphoto.com/file_thumbview_approve/9011366/2/istockphoto_9011366-hungry-mouth.jpg It is not much different then your mouth... just looks a little more "crazy person". The colors are perfect. Thanks so much for your work. =)
  • We like the orange colors best. We would like to see more pictorals or characters please.
  • very nice logo, but not the direction we are looking for
  • shawjames, could you please take a look at this document http://www.designcontest.net/clients/how-to-rate-contest-entries.html there is a new rating system and it looks like you have not been using the rating slider :(
  • Looks good! Do you think it looks like a dog licking out of the box? Is there any way to make the tongue look more like it is sticking out instead of licking? I really like your idea... it just needs to be evolved a little. Thanks so much.
  • Good Start. =) Can you please change the colors to Orange and make the tagline more prominent (bigger). Add: “where” in the beginning of the tagline so it reads: Where common sense is not so common! I think this logo would work better if there was a little drawing.. like a man falling in a hole.. or tripping or whacking his head. Like a little stick figure… Something that a person with "common sense" would not do. That would work well I think. Thanks so much!
  • Thanks shawjames! Please see the revised. I went with something that was more round/casual/fun, but can still be read at a small size (notice the b/w version in the thumbnail :)
  • LOVE the concept! We need to change a few things though. The font of the actual word is too “nice” it needs to be more casual/fun. Please see this font: http://www.dafont.com/disko.font?nb_ppp=50 It doesn’t have to be exact, but something along those lines. Please change the color scheme a little bit. Pull out the blue and add orange instead.
  • dear, Shawjames, I would like to let you know that we have updated the feedback system. You can read more about it here: http://www.designcontest.net/clients/how-to-rate-contest-entries.html
  • how about something without the connection to the "pp"?
  • Lets stick to pictoral to start, how about your original idea with the "gift bags". Instead of them linked to the "pp", can you set the pictoral to the left of the name and come up with a new font & design for the words?
  • Hey shawjames, glad you liked it, if you prefer simplicity I made a wordmark type of logo
