Florist and gift shop logo $150 needed in 3 weeks
We need a new logo! We just celebrated our 50th year in our family business, a florist and gift shop, and we need a new
crisp logo. Initally, we were just a florist but thru the years our product lines have changed and we need a new fresh look.
We sell a variety of items from floral, plants, home accessories,
trendy shoes, Vera Bradley bags and travel accessories, Life is Good t shirts, jewelry, candles, baby items and more--we are in a small town and our store is the "mall of our town".
This logo will be used on business cards, signs and printed materials.
we use in our packaging the following colors; tourquoise, hot pink, lime and yellow--however, we are very open to color.
I have an outdoor lighted sign that is 8' high and 4' wide, I would like the logo to be something I could use on the sign.
we are open to suggestions on fonts.
the copy should read; Taylorsville Florist & Gifts

I have enjoyed the options that have been presented.
One thought I have had--What about a fancy gift box and a leaf or flower?
08-28-2007, 02:01 AM
08-28-2007, 01:02 PM
what about a design that shows movement--faded dots or lines that become stronger and then form a design....action!
I am open to colors.
I like the options so far--and I know this is a difficult task!
Thanks for all the work!

Could we change the letter in the giftbox to a different style with the floral design--from a distance it looks like a cross.
08-28-2007, 04:15 PM
could we loosen up the vine on #9-
08-28-2007, 10:11 PM
A sort of explosion of gifts :)

On version 14--how about making the E at the end of Taylorsville larger,
as shown in the #15 design--and similar font.
Also, show me some other color options and correct the spelling of Florist.
Thanks for all the designs you are making! This is great!
08-29-2007, 04:00 PM
Sorry about that spelling mistake. Below are the corrections and a couple of different color options.

Let's work on the font's a bit---my daughter says try a more funky font--on the "Florist & Gifts"-and maybe just a bit larger font size.
08-30-2007, 12:03 PM
On #14 & 18, try a different font, and make the Florist & Gifts larger.

Slightly different layout and font. All comments welcome :)

Cazeyzman, We all like your design! But we want to tweak it just a bit.
I like the vertical design for our 4 x 8 outdoor sign, and I like the horizontal design as well.
On the design--could you add just about 3 dots to the center of the design--near the squiggle that looks like a 7.
On colors--we are still undecided, We seem to lean to the pink and green, however if you have any other ideas--go for it.
On the font, give us a few more options on the words florist and gifts, we like the feathers swirls on each side, maybe make those words slightly bigger.
I will be out of town until Tuesday--so enjoy the holiday!
Try a different shade of green with the pink, I don't care for the yellows, or silver/blue for us. The blue and brown is interesting....
Thanks for all your work.

Here is a different font, slightly larger for the "Florist & Gifts"
09-04-2007, 05:42 AM
And here we havce just a slightly different color conbo! :)
09-05-2007, 04:44 AM
Ok, I really like the font on Version 3, horizontal. This font for a vertical version might need the lower case e on the end...I'm not sure.
I like the purple and green version, show me some more in a brighter pink tone with green.
We are VERY close and I appreciate your work and everyone's work. This has been a fun experience.
And here we havce just a slightly different color conbo! :)
09-06-2007, 05:33 AM
I used a brighter pink, almost a pure magenta, and the Taylorsville font from #3.
09-07-2007, 06:17 PM
Great--we like these colors--apply it to version 5 and I think we will be set.
09-08-2007, 01:26 PM
here is the version 5 layout with the new colors. let me know what you think.
09-08-2007, 03:22 PM
could you change the Florist & Gifts font---what do you recommend?
Something a little easier to read.....
09-09-2007, 11:25 AM
I tried some different font and the more easily read and the best fonts to give contrast to the headline font were clean, san-serif typefaces. Below are some samples. I tend to like something like B or C, which have a little more character. Let me know.
09-10-2007, 05:08 PM
These look good, and I liked the scripty font on the previous version--except for the G--is there a script that would have a better G?
This is the design of our choice--we just have to be sure on the lower line font.
09-10-2007, 05:11 PM
Have you decided to work exclusively with zman? If so, I will move this to the Revisions forum. Otherwise it will remain here open to new entries.
09-11-2007, 06:34 AM
Yes we will go with this design--with a few minor revisions.

Thanks, Should have those revisions posted later today.
09-13-2007, 05:29 AM
Ok, I tried the More scripty font with a different, a little more recognizable "G". Let me know what you think. Thanks
09-13-2007, 02:10 PM
Ok--It's a deal! We like your work and we appreciate your patience!
We look forward to using our new logo!
