  • I would like to see emerald green be prevalent in the design. Some clear-looking or transparent lettering over a design may be interesting. Clear/transparent font or designs would convey the "Clear Solutions" tagline (maybe that tagline could be in the logo). Would it be possible for the logo to also say "Crystal MAC" instead of "Crystal Mortgage Acquisition"? I very much like the themes that are inherent to the atomic structure of the crystal: organized and symmetric.
  • #22, #23, #24: I wanted to propose you smth different and not ordinary. Here is the Art Deco style logo. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Art_Deco). Hope you like it. Thank you.
    • Thank you eximius. I like the creativity of these, but feel that we need something a little more formal.

    • Well, you're the boss! But the main goal of designing logos and new brand identity in general is to create something unique and not ordinary, so your business popups somehow from your competitors, to show how memorable, serious, innovative and independent your company is. My icon represents the fast movement (crystals are heading up), reaching top goals and financial stability (the natural crystal's property – durable, transparent, strong). The art deco style emphasizes a wealth, prosperity, grotesk and old-fashioned attitude to the financial business (think Wallstreet, NY business district, etc). Hope you reconsider. Anyway, thanks.

  • Would like to see this without the line coming out of the right of the crystal. Also, I like the green but would be interested in seeing how it would look with pale to rich shades of blue.
  • Mortgage is spelled incorrect. Would like to see this spelled correctly and using green.
  • I really like the font on this one. Would like to see it with a different shape and in green.
  • The colors are good but the design is a little too busy. It is difficult to read the text.
  • Hello CH, There are my entries #18 and #19. What do you think? Please feedback me. Best regards
  • Thank you all for your entries!
