Hi

$150 dollars up for grabs !

My name is Andy Shears, based in the UK and we are in need of a new logo design for our business.

We specialise in the distribution of small plants by mail order.
That may sound simple but it goes allot further than that.

Our company produces “reader offers” for newspapers and magazines.

We suggest “offers” that these magazines can run, produce the advertising, grow the plants and then distribute the plants by mail order throughout the UK

We do not generally deal direct with the public, and we act in the background for a particular publication as though we are part of that publication running the “offer”

However, we need to revamp our logo to give an image to the purchaser, and new business clients, that we are part of that publication but are a separate entity, professionally running all aspects of the promotional and distribution activities.

While we can produce advertisements “in house” with little trouble, a logo design should be produced by someone outside our business who can look at this problem without bias.

The bad news, or good news, depending on how you look at this from a design point of view, is we are willing to look at any design, with any colour or colours. We leave this entirely down to the designer.

Our web site is currently being updated and you can view, this at http://www.shears.co.uk/logo to get an idea of what is required to fit to this template. The logo must be capable of being inserted into the top right hand position of our web site and be capable of being printed on white paper for letterheads, business cards and compliment slips. So you may well have to design two sizes of one logo to compliment this.

The logo should contain our company name “Shears” or “shears distribution” or something along these lines together with a few words about what we get up to as a company. EG “Distribution” “Advertising” “Special offers” “Reader offers” etc. The words must best describe what we do in as short as possible.

I feel simplicity is the key, to get a quick link between an image and text, after all who looks at a logo for longer than 2 seconds !

Good luck





Andy Shears

Hi,
I created the logo to be more of a "Branding". It not only can be used for the logo, But also as a sticker or seal for the actual mailing. It is very memorable and easily identifiable.
Thanks,
Anthony

That size will be fine and we can use the same design for letterhead, etc
excpet look at the design above, this size seems better, but lets see what you come up with

We need a logo that shows what we do and as yet no one has come up with anything that does this.

Anyone one else want to try ?

Can we try a few different designs around your first one
For instance.

The logo looks like we sell "tyres" can you change the "tyre" part to resemble say a 5 or 7 or 9 leaf segment instead. We need to incorporate more of a plant design.
I think we should drop the word "Advertising" and change the "small plants by mail" to "plants by mail"

The main co name "Shears distribution" needs highlighting a bit more either by a different font or colour.

I thought a few design changes might give us something close.

Regards

Andy

Hi

We need more of an identity so that if someone sees our logo they have an idea what we do as a business.

Hi,

here is an idea - I tried to concentrate more on the aspect on your connection with magazines as you mentioned you don't deal with the public directly anyway so I thought the magazine point might be more important to emphasize as that's what you seem to be specialised in.

Feedback is appreciated
