(Admin code added by Palmer - 912453B)

I'm looking for a logo for my lawn care business. The name is Five Star Lawn Maintenance. This logo will be used for postcards, flyers, clothing, and eventually vinyl truck lettering and stationary. The colors I have been using are red and white. The truck I use is a white Chevrolet Silverado 2500 HD. Clothing consists of grey sweatshirts and red t-shirts. I'm looking for the logo to be one or two colors. Possibly all red or either a combination of red/white or red/black.

I guess my thinking with a one color logo was to have it in red for my truck, sweatshirts, postcards, and stationary and easily done in white also for my red shirts. Hopefully this makes sense. I'm looking for something simple, but obviously more distinct than something I could do myself.

I do know from talking to my printer that the logo needs to be in a true eps file for my postcards. I know this is short notice, but I would like to make a decision by March 1, so I can get my postcards done. If you have any questions, let me know.

Thank you for participating.

Hi,

here is a start - note this sure is not the *typical* lawn maintenance type of logo with trees in it etc.......but that wasn't my intention anyway

Feedback appreciated.

Thanks,

Frank

beatz,

Nice start! I like the idea you have, not being "typical" with trees and such. I would prefer five to be spelled out if possible. If you can, I would like to see some with the stars and without.

Thank you for getting this started. I will check back later to see if there is anything new.

Here's an idea you can have some fun with!

Bad Lawns, Bad Lawns
What ya goin' do
Who ya goin' call
when the lawn's too tall!

Could be a cool marketing idea. Circled star resembles cops

you would be the LAWN COPS!!!!

That's cool MOZ. It has a nice ring to it

Cops meats ghostbusters. Will stick in my head for a while.

A big thanks to everyone involved so far. I'm having trouble trying to put into words how I want this to look.

I like the entries by JulieT the best so far. Hopefully I can get some more variations and one will catch my eye. I'm going to try and search the site for some ideas from other contests.

In the "Logo for law firm" topic, I really like the entry made by FuseDesignStudios. Maybe simply incorporate some sort of design with the company name, triangular or oval in shape, for example. I know I'm rambling a bit, let me think about this and see if I can put it into words better.

Keep up the good work! I'm sure someone will nail it eventually.

I'm getting some good ideas, thank you.

So far, I like the 1st one by Taldo the most. Not sure it's exactly what I'm looking for, but it's getting closer.

beatz: I really like the designs you have come up with for Jay ALC "Archer Lawn Care". Do you think I could see something similar?

Keep them coming!

I'm stuck on the design taldo submitted at the moment. I like the presentation of the text. Maybe something like that with an oval/circle around it.

I'm not sure I want a star in the logo. I'm thinking Five Star Lawn Maintenance in a sharp looking font with an oval, circle, half circle, etc. around it. Some ideas are starting to come to my mind based on everyones work so far. Please bare with me here.

I really like the latest entries made by DesignGeneral and Raja. These are getting much closer to what I had in mind.

Could someone possible try one with a circle or oval around the name?

I don't have time right now, but later I'll check back in and maybe ask for some different variations to the logos DesignGeneral and Raja have posted.

Looking good.
