It's a young rapidly growing industrial and art company with high requirements for the quality. - use only our english name: Hydro-tex - The logo consists of unique graphic symbol and corporate typeface writing, don't use letters in graphic symbol - don't use blades in graphic symbol I hope it will inspire you! ____________________________________________________ HYDRO-TEX. We need a logo design for our new company Hydro-Tex. It's an industrial and art company with high requirements for the quality. Our company's activity category is to cut materials such as marble and granite, to create stone medallions, develop own medallions and other decors. We also cut metals, plastics, wood and glass by abrasive waterjet cutting machine. Basic requirements for the logo: - The logo consists of unique graphic symbol and corporate typeface writing. Typeface should contain Cyrillic symbols in russian version of business cards, web and English symbols in international version. Writing in Cyrillic: ГИДРО-ТЭКС; Writing in English: HYDRO-TEX. - The logo should be with rounded corners and smooth lines. On the contrary corporate typeface must be strict. - It will be good if logo will be in the circle or in the square with rounded corners. - Logo must be readable in b/w graphics and in contours for the cutting. The main recognizable contours must be closed and with rounded corners. - Preferred colors: red, orange, gray, black, or blue. - The logo should be easy to read on dark backgrounds: dark grey, black. - The first thing we want to do after creating the logo is printing business cards. So, it is preferably if your work can also show the logo on business card.

    This graphic symbol seems very aggressive.
    • The idea/concept was to visualize "watercutting" by blending av cutting blade with a water drop. That seemed logical to me. But your the expert. I can of course smooth it a bit and work more on the water feeling.

      Of course, I understand what you meant. Please, watch this video to know more about waterjet cutting mashines: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SjwgMBzX7EA&list=UUBCd0ZjTXAJlPiaD319sHQA&index=14 Or this pic: http://losangeleswaterjet.files.wordpress.com/2011/11/img_3272.jpg Maybe it will be helpful for you. But water theme is not the main one, I wrote about it below. Try to use red, orange, grey colors. We are not just a waterjet cutting company. Look at the project description.

    Please, don't use "H" in graphic symbol. And I can't imagine how to cut you graphic symbol anyway.
  • trf
    To all: Please, try to use red, orange, grey. Water theme is not main.
  • trf
    - Font should be more strict. - Graphic symbol should have softer edges.
  • trf
    Not bad for the first try, but: - Name of our company is written with a hyphen. - Text is too bold. - Сolors should be brighter. - This shades of blue are not preferred.

    Please, read project description and comments.
  • Hi, Design #11 is for your consideration. Need feedback, if it is closer to you. Thanks and Regards...
    • trf

      No, it is not closer to me.

    Try to do some differ from watercutting theme. Don't forget that we also are an art company which using own waterjet cutting machine. Try to combine those themes. Try to do some contrast variants with orange, red, black, grey. Use intense colors.

    Sorry, but I've seen something like that before.

    I like more your first try with 3d logo. This symbol is too simple. Try to do: - add some artistic elements; - remove this element at the top of graphic symbol; - add thickness to the element like in the first try. Thank you.
  • trf
    It is like "Shell" company logo.
  • Hi CH, Please see my entries #26 & #28 . Let me know any feedback you may have. Thank You.
    • trf

      #26 is better then #28. But some of the elements is too sharp.

  • trf
    Sorry, but it is remind me a pac-man.
  • trf
    I feel like I've seen this somewhere before.
  • trf
    It is difficult to cut, too much elements.
  • Can feedback and evaluation of my designs. Thank you.
  • trf
    Use of 3d is a good idea, I like it! But graphic symbol have too much closed contours. And try to use more colors or complicated background or several shapes in one symbol. Thank you.
  • trf
    Try to make simple graphic symbol, but complicated background. Use gradient backround in graphic symbol maybe.
  • trf
    Thank you for your try. But graphic symbol must be in contours for the cutting. The main recognizable contours must be closed.
  • trf
    Please, try to do something new.
