Logo #2 - Feedback Request
Thursday, June 05, 2008
Here is another logo from Design Hovie Studios for which I would appreciate your feedback. Just to reiterate, the kind of feedback that is most useful is not what you would change about the logo or even whether or not you would personally choose it, but rather the feelings, connotations, and impressions that the logo gives you. Thanks!
This one is nice! Elegant. (Don't know if that's what you're going for, but I do like it.)
This one stays consistent with your brand. The previous one moves in a new direction; which could be what you are trying to accomplish? I prefer this one as it ties the logo back to your original brand.
more like a bee, still looks kinda like a flower, where is the honeycomb?
It looks likes a contrived way to make a letter B and d appear like a bee.
Use of single colour is unappealing.
I find it a little childish. And if single color is the option, I wouldn't choose this one. On the other hand, the font is elegant.
I like it! Original, and aptly supports your company name. Perhaps some black stripes on the Bee's body would round out everything?
I get a nice, warm feeling when looking at it.
Flower, flowing, not much else going on when I look at it. Had to study it to see what looks like a musical note. Not nearly as original as your software.
The bee is the prominent part of the log and the eye is drawn there first. The bee is a bit hard to recognize until you read the wording or otherwise know the company name in advance. As another post suggests you could combine with some black to make bee clearer. Two color logo is a little harder to deal with in print and in some background colors on websites so this might not be the way you want to go.
The bee stroke is a bit fat/thick. Like the color.
clean, fluid, regal
It took me 30 seconds to find the likeness of a bee - my eyes were focusing on the heavy wings, which didn't look like wings.
Stylistically, I like the flow and lightness of the first logo, but there's no graphic tie-in with your firm's name.
warm, classy, honey, etched, one dimensional, a little boring
Some resources to help evaluate your design...
Here is a nice strategic/visual identity website: IdentityWorks by Tony Spaeth.
Interbrand also has a good set of free white papers on naming, branding, identity.
Oops, that previous link didn't work for some reason, here is another to IdentityWorks.
Nice, flowing, creative. I wouldn't add black to the bee stripes, I like that this has the essence of a bee, flight, motion, etc. without saying, "look at me, I'm an actual bee".
I'd say bright and colourful are the first two adjectives that come to mind. It ties in nicely to the company name without being too obvious - I really like it.
nice, warm, coherent but... a little static?
Time is dynamic and we represent it with a line oriented to the right. I would perhaps rather loose the "B" effect and turn the bee rightwards.
Fun. Makes sense with Bee Docs. Makes name memorable because of image link. The wings create the letter B. The wings could tie-in with the 3D look of the 3D Timelines.
classic, old-fashioned, a little child-like. I think I would make the lines thinner.
I like the logo very much because you can close your eyes and are able to draw it...
And: it's realy consitent with your brand...
thick, one-dimensional (or is that two words?). It looks like a platter - perhaps making more of that quality. Make it a little 3D thickness?
I´m from argentina, I´m studying History of Art and I´ve been searching for a very good program to make timelines for Mac. Your Program ist very good and with the pics you can do very practical timelines for arts historician. The problem for me ist that normaly we need timelines with a lot of dates, more then 500.. and a program like timelinemaker pro ist better for that because you can have a database and then create the timelines automatically (but I think that the visual possibilities of the Timelinemaker pro are very limited and with the classical graphic-problem of WIN)..That´s only a suggestion. Thanks!
sorry, I confused the place of my post
Interesting. The design feels almost rustic, rather like a medieval wood carving. To me it implies cottage industry, bespoke high-quality work.
So if you want to be seen as a flash, high-tech big business this is probably not the right logo. But I like it.
