Project description

We need a logo for our bed and breakfast that shows our personal, comfortable and homey style, but still looks professional. BTW, "Canterbury" has no significance other than being the street we are located on.

  • Hi, Would you be kind to provide more info about your Bed and Breakfast? Is your Bed and Breakfast very old house/luxury any color choices you prefer or like to incorporate for? Best Regards
    • There is nothing particularly special about our home other than we host a bed and breakfast. It is a pretty normal, "executive" home. We're open to any color ideas.

  • This is nice. A real possibility.
  • Not what we're looking for. Thanks.
  • We really like this design but it looks a little too business-like and not quite as homey and comfortable as we want to portray. Maybe a different font?
    • Thanks for your feedback and liking my design! I will work with diffrient fonts and make it more homey and comfortable to the eye! Best Regards

      |--| Dear CH, I have submitted my design with different background to give you some other choices! Thank you!

  • This is very much the sort of thing we are looking for. It has a bit of country feel to represent the comfortable image we want, and the classic look of "Canterbury".
    • Thank you very much for your feedback! Is there a particular element missing that could improve the design? Perhaps a bed symbol in the bottom half ?

    • I think a bed in the bottom would make it look cluttered. If we used a bed it would have to replace the "breakfast" in the top section. How about trying a color different than red? Or maybe changing the font used in "Bed and Breakfast">

    • #21 is ready for your feedback. I used the same font for 'Bed & Breakfast'. Do you prefer 'Bed & Breakfast', or 'B & B'? PS: not sure why my .jpg is shifted up, but I assure you the vector images is centered.

    • We like the changes, but the original font for "Bed and Breakfast" is better. "Bed and Breakfast" is better than B & B. Basically, the new blue plaid is good.

    • #23 with the original font, and placed a little differently so there is not too much open space like in #11. Open to further improvements, but I am a relatively new member, and I think I read somewhere that you'd have to somehow grant me some sort of permission for additional entries.

    • Thanks. I have 2 additional entries I can submit. I could modify #23 with any of the following if you think it would be an improvement: -lighten up the plaid blue background even more so the letters stand out even more -change the plaid to a different color like yellow with orange... -remove the inner black oval lines -put curved ends at the start and end of Canterbury to enclose it -put a fly in the soup (kidding).

  • HI Ch, any feedback about #33 and #34 would be gladly appreciated, I know there is not much time left but I certainly can try to improve them if i know in what direction to go, thank you in advance ! Best Regards, Anaid
  • Hello Mike, Any chance of some feedback on #15? Just so I know what direction to go in. Thanks.
    • The background design is a little hard to figure out, but overall, it looks more like a sign than we need (ie this logo will not become a sign).

  • Thanks for the adjusted versions. The original design was better.
  • Cute idea - a little too country for our city house.
  • Hello Mike, I had submitted #15. Thanks for the rating. Am I going in the right direction with this? Thanks, Paul
  • We prefer the "Bed & Breakfast" as it appears in entry #11, and without the closed ends around "Canterbury". Also the simpler check is better. This is going to be used small (letterhead, cards, etc.), not big (signs) so we need to be careful that it is not too busy.
    • Got it. What would you think of a version where the top semi-circle is a roof-line instead?

  • You had some other entries that we liked. Did you take them off? We just didn't like the color combination in this one, but the teal was very nice. We would like to consider it if you would resubmit it.
  • Dear CH, I have submitted entries #52 #50 #49 ... I tried incorporating the home feeling by choosing the window which also shows trust n transparency. Hope you like it. Would really love to hear some feedback so that I can improve the design. Thank u Regards Nandni
