Comments

  • Hello! I have submitted Entries #1, #2, #3, #4, #5, and #6, and would love to hear your thoughts/changes you might suggest. Thanks!
  • May I request a variation using the Gray and white and vice versa...one of the uses of using this logo would be on printed material and I want to see if using gray would appear more elegant than using solid black
    • GJR

      I have added #58 as requested. Thank you! .

  • The jewel is the best looking in all the entries...my concern is that it appears to be too complicated when used in a website application on a smartphone or a tablet
  • GJR
    I have added designs #51 & #52 for you .
  • Could you please have a version of this with the letter spacing as in design 50
  • Could you please have a version of this without the shadow line
  • I like this font a lot and lower case is more elegant than caps. I am having the impressions the letters are a bit crowded together...maybe a bit spacing between the letters could help... A question to you...what's your thought of keeping the shadow line...do you think it adds to the logo or removing it will not affect the logo...I am just thinking out loud here
    • GJR

      I have added design #50 without the shadow and with more space between the letters. I like the new text and I don't think the shadow makes much difference to the design - it adds a little depth but I think it works well without it too. Thanks!

      |--| I like your skill..you somehow can capture what I wanted...I would love for you to be part of the next design context I am running..I think you will be the one to deliver what we are looking for... Again...well done and you do have a great talent ...

    • GJR

      I would love to take part in your next contest, Thank you!

  • This could be the winning design my friend...very well done...I am very happy about it...it really lives up to all what I wanted in the logo
    • GJR

      Thank you for your kind comments! I'm very pleased you like my design.

  • I keep coming back to the design here for the way you made the jewel..it's different because it has those sides suggesting the shine instead of at the top... Can you make this the logo but maybe make those side shine edges less sharp and more curved at their edges,,, I like to see the combination of the colors emerald green, and black on white and their inverse.

      |--| I would happily make again, my entry # 47 please check, thank you ...

  • Your design is now my top favorite...some variations I would love them if you create them... - try the logo in white on black and black on white - the word to be in lower casing instead of caps - logo alone without the word - add underneath the word emerald and smaller size: service & help desk
    • GJR

      Thank you for your feedback. I have added designs #44, #45, #46 and #48 to show you the variations you requested. Thanks!

  • My friend..we are getting closer...just work with me and try to apply your impressive creative talent to what I am proposing... Try to make the jewel open from one side...imagine a lower case letter e ...if possible to make the stroke of the lines a bit thicker so it can deliver more substance...again think of the apple logo.. For the word...your font choice is great...try the word in all lower caps instead of upper caps...also if there is a font that has rounded edges..if ever you saw the Arial Rounded..but a font with personality like the one you chose here... I think we are close to have a winner with your design

      |--| I propose a new entry #32 #34, please see, thank you ...

  • I like what you made here...you definitely understood what I want to get to...your idea of keeping an open side of the logo I really like a lot... Could you please try a variation where the edges are rounded instead of sharp

      |--| thanks for the feedback, I made ​​a new proposal please see entry #30, thank you ...

  • I think you demonstrated your understanding of the requirements by the work you did with jewel shaped E. I wish if you can do more work on that part alone without the word to come up with a logo that delivers of the personality of emerald just like Apple's logo...only variations are to have the logo on top, bottom or sides of the word Emerald...
  • I liked the logo (without the word) in your number 16 and 12 more than here...it looks too complicated and too busy with many sharp edges... Please go to what you did with the E in 16 and 12...I believe we could have a winner in these two if you could push it more towards an apple like logo
  • Yes...we are on the same wavelength for sure... Is is possible to make the edges more rounded like instead of what you did in curving them like a bed...am thinking of the rounded edges in Apple's logo.... So far...your logo is the one I like best of all the submitted...good job
    • okay. will try to make rounded shape.Thanks again for feedback

  • Hello, What I like about your design is that E you shaped like a jewel. I think this is where you need to focus your efforts in building the logo. The word can be an optional part of the logo to appear or not depending on the need and context. The direction I hope you can take the logo is to remove the stars because they do take away from the professionalism. Also the sharp edges make it a bit aggressive. Again I think you are going in the right direction because the inspiration is the Apple logo and I think you have a great start
  • I like the jewel design and I think standing alone it has the potential to be the logo. The direction I wish you to take the jewel design is to make it less sharp edges because it makes it look a bit aggressive. The inspiration of the apple logo proves you have a great start
  • I like the idea of using the E to draw the emerald shape in green. I wish for the font type to still reveal more personality. My concern is that using a word for the logo could make it less recognizable...think how Apple logo gives the complete identity without any words...

      |--| I am glad CH like my proposal, I will try to fix it, thank you feedback ...

  • I like the way you used the font type to give a relaxing personality to the name. I don't like much how you presented the A although the idea is innovative. Another concern is that using a word for the logo could make it less recognizable...think how Apple logo gives the complete identity without any words...
  • I like your way of using the font type to give a personality for the name. I don't like the emerald beside the name because it makes the logo too complicated. Maybe if you can use the letter E to shape it like an emerald. Another concern is that using a word for the logo could make it less recognizable...think how Apple logo gives the complete identity without any words...
