Hi Ladies,

I have some logos for you all to look at and give me feedback on. None of the logos is in a truly finished state, though 2 of them are close. Logo C will need a lot more work if I go with that one, including a helmet on the right-most rider but I wanted to through it out there to see if it's even worth me putting more time into it. I'm looking forward to hearing your feedback.

I've never tried posting a poll thread. I hope this works.

I like B because I didn't have to think too hard about it. :D

I like B as well, it's attractive, tidy & easy to read.

... and I didn't see V's response before I formed my opinion, honest! ;)

I like C. Sorry. :p I'm not a big fan of the "G" in the other options, plus I like the representation of the different riding positions, that makes it clear you'll be accessible to all kinds of riders.

And in my head I was seeing C as triathlon events, but that didn't quite compute, so I didn't "get" it. :D

It's been a long day.

The C logo is definitely meant to give an impression of the diversity of fitting that I do and to also have an "Old Timey" kind of feel to convey experience and expertise. Having said that, I would consider the example I've put up here, very rough. The text isn't balanced appropriately, the border is not finished and I would add in some decorative flourishes to balance out the negative space in the final logo. That's a lot of work, so I was trying to get an impression of if it was even worth working on further.

Of the current choices, B is my favorite.

I liked C, but I'd tweak it to add some simple wheels to the figures. As it is, I could potentially see someone with a sick mind looking at it and seeing something obscene.

I liked B the best because it is both clear and simple - things I prefer in logos :) C is fun and was my second choice.

I like B too. C looks like sex positions. haha

This is why I aborted the idea of a Vitruvian man type logo. I couldn't make it look clean.:eek::eek:

Thom also likes B. :D He mentioned that if you're thinking about signs, you want them easy to read and maybe have something different on business cards.

That would be me... Sigh. :o

I like B. Simple, easy to read at a glance. :)

I like B. It's just plain elegant.

I like B and D. B is easy to "get", D is slightly more interesting. C looks kinky and A is just a little bit too busy for my taste.

If you wanted to go with A, I'd redo the design so that the R is less out of line with the other letters, even if that would mean messing with the bikes lines. I like the bike, it's just the letters that aren't aligned that rub me the wrong way. I like the oval around the logo.

eta: And I'd change the two T's in "fitter" (in A) to be aligned with the others too, for the same reason.

eta2: Ok, I'm all over the place today. I actually do like D best. The G in the centre is aesthetically pleasing.

From strictly a consumer view I prefer logos that don't require a lot of thought to figure out what it's saying. Simpler is usually better. I liked B. Have you looked at just........Gorge bike fitter (with the G having the wheel design)
Just a thought :)

After looking and also considering the comments, I also prefer B.

I voted before looking at the comments, but they reflected why I chose B. I did like A as a second choice.

I immediately went to B, so that's what I chose. I do like C, but it was too "busy." A few tweaks to simplify it might work for me. I didn't see anything sexy, but I was focused on bikes!

I like Wasp's idea, kind of a blend of B and A. Take design B and modify it so the G in Gorge is the wheel design (the way it is in A), but keep the simple, clean lettering of B. You'd need to reduce the font size of BikeFitter but I don't think that would be a problem.

Here are some options on that line. I kept the original and played with the font on the other 3 options to try to achieve a better balance with the Wheel G.

Nr. 2. The R lines up nicelyy with the F.

I had no idea I had such a thing for aligned letters. Sorry :-D

:D No. 2, but for the font.

I like c best for complex reasons I'll try to explain later. :)

I prefer B because it's simple. C would be my second choice, but it has too much trapped white space. A and D are too hard to read, especially D -- if I hadn't seen B and C next to it, I don't know if I would have been able to figure out that one of the words is "gorge."

Anyway that was my reaction.

Good luck!!

The negative space is good in C. Resist the urge to fill it up. Think of the logotype as a painting perfectly balanced in a blank wall. Let the eye have a ill' room to move. You'll have greater legibility. D

Trek - less is more - 420

Another vote for B. Clean, simple and effective.

One thing to consider is logo reproduction. I can see that C might have issues in readability if it were any smaller.

I could potentially see a little figure silhouette (like one from C) overland on the wheel of B.
