Help please!

Ok everyone, I need your help! I just had Ross over at Flosites send me a couple of concepts for a logo, and I would love your input... I'll post the concepts first and then I'll add some of my thoughts. Please be honest and let me know any thoughts/suggestions!

OK, this one didn't quite post right... if you click on it, you will see it clearly.



Ok... Right now my favorite is the first one. I think I like the font, and I like the "light" feeling of it. The only thing I am not sure about is the big dandelion in the center. It just doesn't look quite right with a dandelion in the center, but little daisy-like flowers blowing away (which I like)... shouldn't they all be the same?
As for the second one, I like the idea of the flowers coming off of the C, but overall I think it looks too heavy... maybe it would be better if the stems were thinner and more "swirly". And there is something about the font that isn't quite right. The shadows on the letters don't quite do it for me...
So what do you think?
And keep checking back... there's more fun stuff ahead!

Personally, I like the first one as well. It suits you more, except for the big dandelion! I agree with you that it is just not right. Otherwise, I think the second one is just too much. Hope that helps a little!

I don't really like the first one. The big flower divides it up too much.

I like the second one much better; but I agree the font is a bit too thick and heavy... Don't think I like the shadow either. I like the script style better .. more vintage looking I think. I like the idea of the flowers around the letters .. but those look to cutesie to me.

... and please note ...these are just my opinions coming from my perspective.

Yes, the first one is my favorite too. The second one ...the font is not right- overall it looks too teeny-bopper for me. Back to the first one- don't dandilion seeds turn into a daisy-like flower? Overall, I like the revolution...you take something small or ordinary and turn it into something beautiful! =)

I like the first one the best. But I would have him change the dandelion to a daisy and have the other little “flower thingies” be daisy petals blowing away.

FWIW.....I showed it to Brian .. He immediately said the second one drew his eyes first. Didn't say anything else .. but it got his attention over the other one.

I agree with you Caroline, first one is my favorite. The second looks too matter-of-fact or harsh? I don't know, but just doesn't fit you:) This first one looks light and cheery. I don't think the dandelion in the middle causes a problem though, looks like it fits and I love the petals dropping away. Hope that helps. And by the way, the pics of Chris from his first haircut are hilarious and ridiculously cute. You could never take too many pics of him! AND I love you new blog design with your pics from NC on top, so pretty:) Okay..I'll check back soon!

Another vote for the first one! The second one just looks so heavy.

I hope Im not too late, but I actually love the second one. I think if the font of your name was changed to a thinner, lighter font that had more cursive swirls to it that it would add to the light feeling you're looking for. just a thought :D
