Remember that big long post about logos and the old one to the new one, yadah. yadah. yadah. (click here to see what I’m talking about). Well it didn’t take long at all and that one lost the shiny newness too. So, I’ve been designing again and I’m trying to really commit this time. I want to brand! Creating all my session contract, thank-you’s, labels, ALL OF IT to coordinate. This time I’m hoping for some feedback.
Here is what I’ve come up with. The first image is (obviously the logos) These are the top 6 from all my creations. I know, they are not even similar. I’ve been all over the place with these. Right off the top I know I won’t use 4 – it’s a little to cute. I really want to pull for seniors and engagement and that just says child/family to much to me. MY TOP choices are #2 & #6.
Here’s my thoughts.
#2: I really like 2’s colors (I did a 2nd mock up using dark grey/blue as the font, instead of brown and I really like it! I should have used it). Also that it fits square, is easy for branding/watermarking and I love the background stamp I came up with. DOWN FALL: I don’t have a paper collection to work with it, going to have to somehow create a similar branding logo in rectangle shape for when I need a second size, like on my website.
#6 I LOVE the coloring!!! These were the original colors I always wanted to use. As you can see from the second img. I have the coordinating papers to create my full package. DON’T LOVE that the logo is not square shaped for when I need a second size. Also not as big of fan of this flourish in compared to #2’s stamp. But don’t feel like the #2 stamp goes with this style.
And there is my dilemma. They aren’t even the same style at all! Thats 1/2 my problem. But I don’t have 1 style. I love the sophisticated look of the mustard greys. I feel like it would transition nicely from newborn, to senior to engagement to someday wedding. But the simplicity of #2 is really great and super easy for making anything and everything coordinate.
Please help me decide!
