    Question Gorge Bike Fitter Logos

    To disable ads, please log-in.

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

    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. 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.

    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.

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

    Thom also likes B. 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.

    I like B. Simple, easy to read at a glance.
    At least I don't leave slime trails.

    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)
