I have to agree that anytime the word "button" is bold, the "butt" part really stands out. Have you tried doing your first design with "becky" in the same color as your button?

Have you tried the first one, just with multiple buttons? 'cause I really like the first font and the button not being bolded, but I think it's really cute with multiple buttons.

I'm more partial to the three buttons with such a simple font, but I also have a slight issue with the fact that it looks so very much like the facebook logo.

I really like what Feast Your Eyes did as an example with changing up the font for the separate words, I think something like that with the singular button that you used would look more original.

I also don't know that having the word "butt" stand out because of the button image is such a bad thing. You do want to grab people's attention anyway, so why not do it with silly words? They will get the point of the name after the initial doubletake. personally, it would probably attract me more as a buyer, because it's clever. Wink

I'm another one who likes the first font (easier to read), with the three buttons.

Have you tried increasing the spacing between the letters a little bit? It could make the second one seem a little less crowded.

Good luck with it!

Oh my word! Thank you all for the responses and suggestions  Kiss

There are rather a lot of them so I'm going to work up some new versions of the logo over the next day or so and post them for your delectation... decisions decisions!

I'm still wondering whether a name and logo like the one I'm working on will make it seem like I'm just selling buttons. If it makes any difference, as well as my existing button jewellery I'm planning a laser cut range so wanted the logo to reflect the kind of precision and bright colours you can get with laser cut acrylic....  Huh Huh Huh

Thank you again!

I don't think a button in your logo indicates you only sell buttons. I associate buttons with all kinds of other crafty things, like sewing, jewelry, button-covered objects, etc.

I like the first one... I like that font, and I like the one button as the O. Smiley just giving my 2 cents!

I really like the first one you chose, did you try using that thin font for Becky and the thick font for button together yet? The idea of using a different font for Becky was also cute.
You should watch the kerning (spacing in between each letter) on the whole logo though, that will really pull everything together on what you decide on in the end.
Between the two t's of button they are close together, where the spacing between the b and the u  on button are really wide. You should pick the spacing you like better and try to get all of the spaces in between each letter uniform and it will look really professional. I know it sounds ridiculous but it works Smiley

I'm a little confused, as you spell your name with an 'i' and use 'y' in the logo. Your name is usually all over your etsy site as proprietor and I think people like me would be confused.

About the logos, I like using the 2 different fonts with the 4 dots, but i also like that you used 2 different weights in the same family. I definitely prefer the one button.
