Project description

Turf's Up LLC offers top notch weed control and fertilization to residential and commercial lawns. The idea is promote healthy, weed free turf. Professionalism and quality service is key. Keep in mind that Turf's Up DOES NOT CUT GRASS! I have attached a file the has two pages of logos that caught my attention while scrolling through Google images. We would like the logo to be clean, simple and fun, yet marketable to large professional corporations. We are open to any color scheme, however would like it to be relevant to the turf industry. However, keep in mind that most lawn companies have predominately green in their designs and that is not necessarily what we are looking for. This logo needs to stand out from the rest. This graphic will be printed on small signs left in each customers lawn after every application, used on business cards, letterhead, truck wraps etc.

  • Awesome job! I like the professional feel that you have created with this, and I'd like to see more of your ideas. One thing that I think I want to take a look at is trying to incorporate the graphic and words into one image, but I definitely like what you have so far. Thanks for the input!

      Many thanks for your feedback, I'm glad you like it! I have separated the picture from the text because I believe it gives the logo greater flexibility. The picture can be moved from top to bottom or left to right as necessary. The picture can also be used on it's own as an icon or avatar. When I get chance I'll submit some examples of the logo in different scenarios and hopefully work on some new ideas for you too. Thanks again!

    • Thanks for getting back with me. What do you think about working with the grass some to make the up arrow more subtle? I'd like to see more of your ideas and revisions too!

    • GJR

      Sounds good - I'll work on that too. .

  • I think the words are coming along nicely. What about capitalizing the first letters of each word to see how it looks and also play around with the grass at the bottom.
  • I like the colors, and the leaf too. There is a triangle portion at the top of the leaf that seems a bit out of place, or just needs some revision. It looks good overall though! Something to keep in mind is that we deal mostly with turfgrass and rarely with plants that produce a leaf like a tree. Just something to think about.
  • I like the direction you were going with the #31 post. Thank you for the ideas!
  • Neat concept with the colors! I'd like to have the apostrophe in "Turf's" and I do not want any words under the logo. But again, I like what you did with the arrow graphic. I really like the previous post you did better than this one.
  • Thanks for your entry! I think this look has a Fall feel with the colors. I would really like to have more of a Spring/Summer feel. Also, the leaf is a cool idea, however the size may separate the "f" for the "s" a little too much.
    • Thanks for feedback. I revised a bit and resubmitted as #25. Will appreciate if there's more feedback. Thanks.

    • Thanks for the revision. I'm not sold on the word "Up" being literally up, and perhaps the "f" in turf can be revised a bit because it is similar looking to the "T". Thanks! P.S. I like the vibe that you have created in the #60&61 in your portfolio, mostly the veterinary clinic.

  • Thanks for your entry. I would like to stay away from putting text under the logo. In relation to this design, we do residential and commercial services, not just residential.
  • This color scheme is actually one that I wanted to see. Thanks for submitting it. After further review, I'm not sure that it will work very well. Keep playing with it though because I could be wrong!
  • That's a great idea! I actually like that color green with some grey. Also, maybe the arrow would look neat as a different color leaf, or even a just a different shade of green. I'd also like to stay away from the text at the bottom "weed control [...]" Thanks for posting!
  • #28 and #29 are cool! I think the small detail may get lost in some of the less than quality printing that will happen on a day to day basis with invoices. I think it is really cool looking though!
  • Hello! So happy to see you've reviewed my design, #13, and think that I'm headed in an interesting direction. I was wondering if you had any advice on how to improve this design for my next submission? Thank you!
    • Yeah, I'm not opposed to it being a logotype or the color scheme or anything like that. I do feel that it could use an extra touch of something to make it pop and stand out more. I apologize for not being able to pinpoint the exact fix. I know you guys like specific advice. I am really open to any ideas you have, and I'm not opposed to the one you have already submitted. Thanks for your hard work!

  • when i first saw the name "Turf's Up" I immediately linked it to 'surfs up'. Hence my entry #9, feedback is appreciated.
    • Yep, that's the idea. I try to have a laid back atmosphere so that my customers feel comfortable.

    • Is there anything you would like me to change? or have you not rated it because you do not like it?

    • Thanks for your input! I'm not sure that the direction that I want to go with the logo. I do like the fun vibe to it. I would like it to be a little more professional.

  • Hi CH. Please find my entry #85. I idea behind my logo is using the thought of 'surfs up' and incorporating a wave shape blade of grass within the design. Feedback greatly appreciated. Regards SJK
    • Yeah, that's really cool! Do you have any other revisions of it. I'd like to see a some more of your ideas in regards to the surfs up/coastal theme. Thanks for posting!
