I feel like it really depends what kind of things you'll be selling...

Option B could lend to a more kitschy/retro style, where Option C is very clean and modern.

I really like Option A (i love owls and this is super-cute), but it doesn't have anything to it that says outright, handmade/craft.

The bird from Options B & D has great opportunity for branding on t-shirts and things too!

they all look great! B is my favorite but i'm wondering how using the font from C with the image from B would look instead of the script font on B? just a thought. might not work... good luck on your project!

thanks for the feedback!

excellent comments, thank you. I should have said, our style is bold, graphic prints with a mid-century modern
leaning (ha! not sure if that makes sense)  so maybe the owl in particular is a bit too cute.

I think i really need to think how these will work as labels - which brings me to another question, do people mind labels on the outside of purse, bags etc, or should they only be on the inside?

thanks guys, I am worried about the clarity of C, especially at small sizes.. also I think cutesy birds are a bit generic?

Personally, yes. It looks a little to "upscale" generic. lol If that made any sense... Cheesy

I'd go with B.

As cute as A is, it's kinda cartoony. I'm not sure if that's what you want to be going for. D is just too blank.

Good luck!

Are you going with that last image you posted?

I would be happy with a tag using just the image of the bird on the outside. I'd leave the type on the inside only.

from the design-point, the first one by far is the best. it's a good logo, very professional looking.

the bird shape from the others looks somewhat unfinished and the string/worm looks strange with the text.
C looks like it's supposed do look clean, but the thing in the birds beak doesn't really fit in that concept.
there is potential in the birdish ones, but right now it's very generic.

i hope this doesn't sound harsh or something, this is meant to be constructive.
good luck with your plans and your logo!

I like A the best, but I think B is the most successful logo, because it shows stitches and the sewing process.  But the little swirly doo on the Pepsi logo has nothing to do with Pepsi, so maybe your logo doesn't need to have anything to do with your product Wink  I think A is the most dynamic and eye catching...

I like what you came up with in Reply#11 using the bird logo and the simple font.  It seems like it would be the most flexible because you could pull the various components of the logo apart for tags and labels, etc.  I agree with rackycoo that a little bird tag on the outside would be nice with the company name on the interior of the product.

I like C the best. I do like the picture in A, but it's not really anything to do with crafting. And C ties the picture in nicely with the writing Smiley
