Project description

My wife is making homemade soap and wants a logo for her small business. Our last name is "Dove", but there may be some legal challenges with a soap named "Dove" :), so we went with Paloma Falls. "Paloma" is dove in Spanish, and "Falls" is a family name... but falls also brings about images of a waterfall, so that's cool. While you can integrate the “Paloma Falls” name with a logo, she’ll also want just the logo (without text) as a separate design so that it can become a stamp (to stamp the soap and the packaging) so again, a minimal design is preferred. Also, we like the simple, hand-drawn look of the doves Pablo Picasso painted, so you can consider using that as inspiration (but we aren't married to that idea). Her soaps are natural and handcrafted (wrapped in brown butcher paper) and she would like a simple design that reflects this. While not required, colors she likes are earthy colors like hunter green, a dark purple, dark turquoise, etc. So let your artistic and creative juices flow. Thanks

Comments

  • This is closer to the mark. I really like the "P dove" but am unsure of the font. Also if you can make the icon the center of the logo and put "Paloma Falls" as a banner on the top and "Soap Company" across the bottom with the words making a circle that would be nice to see. Thanks!
    • Sometimes the wife and I are commenting on these separately, so I’ll identify myself in my posts as ‘husband’… but let it be known, her views take priority -- Another plus to add about #10 that I just saw is the negative space inside the dove's wing (or the "hole in the P") lends itself to look like a cursive lowercase "f"... as in "Falls". Not sure if that was intentional or not, but playing with that idea a bit may unlock something super awesome!

    • negative space inside the dove's wing (or the "hole in the P") lends itself to look like a cursive lowercase "f"... hmm.. i think that's a brilliant idea.. let me try that.. and.. thank you, for your feedback and appreciation..

    • 'husband' - Hmm, nope, that doesn't look right... we lost the "P"all together... and we liked that! Thanks for giving it a shot though... we still like you other one

  • just an idea #4, your feedback will be appreciated
    • This has a decent feel, but the font needs some work (I can't pinpoint what yet... may need to see some variations). Also, a minimal waterfall design behind the dove would be nice.

    • another try from me.. #7 hope this one closer for you.. :-)

      |--| just for information, if you have any interest in any design, maybe you can give some rate, so that we can submit more design later.. because designer with lower level can only submit 3 design.. even if you just give a low rate in one design, we will be able to submit one other design..

  • hi. please check #3 and let me know if you like it. thank you
    • The right image is on the right track (as it looks like a dove), the left image looks like a humming bird, so it's out. Not sure how we feel about the font yet. Also, a minimal waterfall design behind the dove is desirable.

    • what do you think now???? any suggesting? thank you for your time :)

  • Hi CH, Hope you will like the logo design #1. I shall make your design too soon. Need feedback, if it is close to you. Thanks and Regards...

      |--| We appreciate the attempt, but this is pretty far off what we are looking for. The design is too "complex" (too many colors, gradients, and lines that do not transfer well to simple logo design). As far as the dove image goes, we'd like the whole dove too, not just the head. Also, don't forget to let us see the name.

    • Thanks for your feedback, will provide whole graphic which you gave. Let me do it

  • Can you please do a design similar to this one with some minor adjustments? 1st, can we see the words "Soap Company" in a semi-circle under the dove? And 2nd, can you show us the design in 1 solid color (dove and text all 1 color). Thanks
    • Please find attached a few options as requested. Since I am a new member I have a limit of uploads, but please let me know what you think and I will adjust it accordingly. Thanks & Regards :) Michelle

  • Hello CH, Do you have any modifications you would like to see in #37? Please let me know, thanks. Best regards.
  • 'husband' - all designers, please consider a circular logo design with the following components. #1 - the dove or dove/waterfall logo in the center and #2 "Paloma Falls" around the top of the logo and "Soap Company" around the bottom of the logo (in a circular design. Thank you all so much, your designs have been great!
  • Hello CH, If you could take a look at my #30 design and leave me some feedback on it. Thank you
  • please check #21 and let me know any changes please. and some feedback y will appreciate. thank you so much :)
  • I really love the simple lines of this dove.
    • Thank you so much! I'm glad you like it :) Please let me know if you require any alterations Thank you :)

      |--| Maybe something in a circle like "Paloma Falls" as a banner around the top and "Soap Company" underneath. The words making a circle around the dove and with no shadowing, as I am going to eventually use this as a stamp.

  • I still would like to see this "P" in the center of the logo with "Paloma Falls" across the top, and "Soap Company" across the bottom in a circle (similar to entry 27 by another entrant).
  • HI, This is my last submission design #24for you. As you described that you need it as a stamp, so I did not use colors. Shades are just to look good on printing. Without shade, it will be done as a stamp. I can't submit more design, cause I am restricted for 5 design only by designcontest.com. Need feedback in detail please. Best of luck Regards...
  • please check #21 and let me know any changes please. and some feedback y will appreciate. thank you so much :)
  • I like both fonts but am not a fan of the falcon-like dove. Would you mind trying a different dove?
    • Hello CH I've tried with two different options, #19, and #20. Please let me know what you think of it! thank you. Best regards.

  • Would not translate well as a stamp.
  • Too futuristic for my taste.-Wife
  • Hello CH I have submitted the designs #15, #16, #17 and #18, If you have any feedback, please let me know. Best regards.
  • HI, Thanks for your attention for my previous designs. Design #12 is for your consideration now. Hope it will be more closer to you. Regards...
  • Hello Contest Holder, your comments on #50 and #51 would be much appreciated. Thanks and regards, Emma
    • 'husband' - I like the dove design and colors. The font is okay, but I'm not 100% sold on it. I also appreciate you putting a waterfall into one of the designs... although I'm not sure that particular waterfall would transfer over well to a stamp.

    • Thank you for your feedback. I have uploaded revised design #59 and #60. I have changed the fonts and made the logo more emblem-like for stamping on the soap. I have added the "emboss" so that you get a feel for what it could look like on the soap. I can also upload some colour variations. Hope you like the designs :) Regards, Emma

    • Hello again, I just uploaded design #61, where I have changed the orientation of the dove so that the letters "P" and "F" can be subtly seen in the shape of the bird's wings, body and tail. I also uploaded #65, showing the logo in monochrome, grayscale and colour versions on dark background. Your feedback would be much appreciated. Thanks and regards, Emma

    • Hello, In #67, I have tweaked the bird's design to have the "P" and "F" in the white space. I look forward to your feedback on these last submissions. Regards, Emma

  • 'husband talking' - I really like #47 and #39. I like the font and color choices as well as the dove design and the overall logo. We're new to DesignContest, so I had a question that maybe you (or anyone) can answer... "IF" you win (I'm not saying you will or won't... just "IF"), could we get both these logos as well as a horizontal version (similar to the bottom part of #10?). I just wonder if a winner is selected, if we only get the winning design, or, in the event of very similar designs (like yours where there are only some color changes), you can get multiple? Thanks for the great work!
    • Yes I believe a winner can send a zip file which includes all the designs you require. Hope this helps. I could be wrong but this is what I did for another competition.

    • great, thanks for the info

      |--| Yes sure.. just like Sharpe wrote, i surely will give you all designs i've made for "Paloma Falls"..

    • Yes, I have done this in the past as well - submitted variations of the winning design. I don't mind sending multiple designs that I created, if it is requested.
