Comments

  • We really like this! However, we're not sure that the spray can is the right item - most customers will use a spray gun (from sata for example) rather than can. Also, from a purely layout perspective, it's wide and short - something more square might fit on a website better?
    • I will try. In the meanwhile, thanx for your high rate and appreciation! I must say that my very first attempt was the whole spray can (in vertical) and the name as the label :) Regards, see you tomorrow. Pedro67

    • Hi. added #16. I have put the spray gun and I have "de-orizontalized" the design :) Is it better for you? regards, Pedro67

  • Thanks but not really what we're looking for. Too "dark" (and I don't mean just the colours)
  • This looks interesting - it it supposed to be hand-drawn pot of paint? If so, it isn't clear enough. But the colours and the layout are promising.
    • Thanks. Its a cap of spray can. Ill try another design.

  • I like the energy of this design, but it lacks colour (paints are the primary product to be sold). Also, the tyre mark might make this too automotive - we have industrial customers too.
  • Nice! Small point: lustre is incorrectly spelt
    • Thank you! Sorry! It's been corrected!! Thanks, Claire

  • Not really sure about this....font seems wrong for the design and I don't really like the shape.
  • Nice idea! Perhaps a version with some colour in it?
  • How did my design dissapear, I don't see it? I havent done anything bad.
    • Was yours the one with the wall in it? I don't know where it's gone - it wasn't me. Perhaps you should contact designcontest?

    • yeah that one was mine, btw I got it reuploaded. They said I cannot use stuff like that background for showcase. But however I uploaded new one. If you'd like to see more color variables please let me know.

  • I like the concept and this graphic behind the & is much better. Is the font available in WOFF and other CSS formats?
    • It's available in ttf not woff. I wouldn't recommend using it in long text terms because it's not readable in smaller size.

    • I was thinking about it for headings

    • Yeah it would definitely look nice on headings. It's a modern and not much graffiti like font, fits minimalistic designs perfect. :)

  • It would be nice to see this with: a) A similar font, but one that can be used in CSS on website (or perhaps this one can?) b) The paint spot looking a little less like a jelly fish!

      |--| It's my font, you can use it. I'll try to make better splatt.

    • uploaded different splatters as requested. I can try other styles if you want as well. I don't know what you really think about the whole concept.

  • Hi - Which font is this? Is it available to use in CSS on a website?
    • Hello there Dear CH, thank you for your feedback! Its font called Zag Bold, from what i saw you need written permission from font author to use them on website. Search them on fontfabric there is licence for them.

  • Preferred the coloured version on black
  • Well done for using colour and shine in the logo, but this one isn't for us. Sorry.
  • Is there going to be an update on this one? If the cap idea was clearer (we don't want everyone asking why we've got a top hat as a logo), this might be the winner!
  • Hi Pedro - I didn't mean to eliminate #56 - trying to get it back!
    • Don't worry, if you let me win :D Maybe can I re-submit it for you? Regards

    • Resubmitting would be good - thanks. Actually, I didn't make myself clear enough before. I didn't mean lots of different coloured versions, I meant one version with different colours in it (eg bottom row green, top red red etc). Also, could you find space for a .com in there (ie Hue & Lustre .com ) Thanks!

    • All right then! I'll paint and submit the new one :) Thanks. Seeya

    • Hi john11. Posted #57 with color spectrum. Hope you'll like it :) Hugs

  • Is it possible to see this on black, but with a spectrum of colours in the graphic rather than just green? Also with Paint and Consumables as the sub heading. Thanks
    • of course yes :) I'll try some in a little time. Thanx 4 feedback. Bear Hugs

  • Is it possible to see this in a bigger version? It's hard to see what's going on.
  • Dear CH, please be so kind and check my design #30 best regards
  • Dear designer, the court decided it's a copy. Please be more original. http://www.designcontest.com/logo-design/hue-and-lustre/entry/25/
  • Thanks for any feedback about #86. If you don't like the colors i can change it.
