Project description

HV Builders & Remodelers Association is a non-profit group made up of commercial and residential developers, builder, architects, engineers, realtors, mortgage brokers, bankers, interior designers, etc. It is a professional association whose mission is to build and support our local communities by providing resources, advocacy, credibility, and education for our current members and future generations. We have just changed the name of our organization and are trying to rebrand. We have seen a drop in member participation which we believe is due to the slow housing/building market. Business owners may just not have had the money to put towards dues. We cover a wide geographic area (Hudson Valley in NY) and want to attract members from all of the counties we encompass. We are hoping to get new blood involved and excited about construction again.

Comments

  • Thank you for your submissions. I like the use of the sign in this one. I realized after I submitted the contest that I should have mentioned that I don't want construction tools (hammers, nails, saws, etc) used in the logo as this is fairly typical of construction related logos. I also don't want houses because this organization is for commercial and residential related businesses.
    • Thanks for the feedback, is there any color or symbol in particular you want to use?

  • My comments for #1 would go along with this. Also, looking for some color in the logo. Thank you for the time you took and for your submission.
  • Nice! I feel like you can't tell that it's an H in the background and the V is very dominant.
    • good evening CH.. Thank you for the positive feedback about my design CH... I uploaded revised design of my entry.. Thank You...

    • Thank you! That's better. Association should go after remodelers at the end if the organization's name.

  • I like this! It will need to have "association" at the end of the name. I didn't put that in the original contest title.
  • I like this! I like the color combos and the layout. While I like the symbol I'm wondering I'd making it into more if a bridge might work better. Reason being, the Hudson Valley has a major bridge project going on right now - the Tappan Zee bridge, so a bridge might be good. Also our organization is working to bring more participation by professionals on either side of the bridge which makes up the Hudson Valley.
    • Hello CH, Thank you for your feedback. I just made another design before I read your comment on my first design. If you don't mind, would you please be more specific about "the bridge" characteristic/ the looks that you would like to see in the design. Is it more about "connecting" (function) or more about a bridge as physical building?

      |--| It could be both. This area of NY is going to see a lot of growth and benefit from the new bridge that's being built- due to accessibility to both sides of the river and from groups moving to the area to work in the bridge. But it's also about connectivity as we try to broaden our reach and bring in members from the other dude of the bridge.

    • One more question; should I incorporate the word "Association" into the design?

    • Yes, it should probably be in there somewhere.

  • Like the look and the use if color. Am worried the blue H resembles the hospital symbol too much. What about HB in the box?
  • Our old logo was maroon, so I'd like something other than that. I don't have a symbol in mind. It could even just be a logo done with words.
  • Can you try this with HV for Hudson Valley rather than HB? Or even HVBRA?
    • yes, of course and it's done along with the inside the square one as you required few days earlier.

  • I like the HV, but can you change the font on the rest of it to something with cleaner lines?
  • I like this also. Like the 2 colors separating the H and V. May not need to replace the arc through the H. I'm not in love with the font for the name of the organization. If you are able to, can you play around with that a bit?
  • I like these. We have a local phone company that has the large block letters with a curved line going through it and it is reminding me of that. By chance, can the detail going through the letters be made into the outline of a building rather than a smooth arc?
  • I definitely like this better than the logo with the top on it. I'm not crazy about the font for Hudson Valley. I don't feel like it's all meshing together.
  • The top on the HV is reminding me of a college's logo that is nearby.
  • I like this design, but feel that for this purpose the curviness of the HV lettering is a little bit more fun and playful than what I'm seeking. Can you try it without the curves of the letters on the inside of the circle? So, only the outer edges would be curved. Hope I'm making sense.
  • I like the HV in the boxes, but feel the additional design is a bit busy
  • Eliminating due to name of organization being incorrect.
  • Can i have your opinion on #19 ? Thanks! (...) - Alex
  • My design # 13 #16 #17..please feedback..on #17 the logo create like a nail,a equipment to build,simple and unique..
  • good evening CH....... Any request for revisions? Feel free to ask CH.. Thank You...
  • Please add Association to the end of this. THank you!
