What is the exact name you would like in your logo?

because i love dogs -OR- Because i Love Dogs -OR- becauseilovedogs

What is your industry?


What are the top 3 things you would like to communicate through your logo?

1.) Classy / High-End / Upscale
2.) Full of Personality
3.) Holistic / Earthy / Nature Inspired

* MUST perfectly marry the following two concepts:
1. Appeal to upscale clientele
2. While still showing the playful, mischievous nature of dogs!

What logo styles do you like (image + text, image only, text only, etc.)

SEE IMAGES ATTACHED!! 2 that I like & 2 that I do not like.

/ STYLES: Character Logo, Pictorial/Combo Logo, & Emblem Logo

/ FONTS: simple yet interesting, sleek lines
/ COLORS: deep sophisticated colors (COLOR PREFERENCE ATTACHED. Orange is a must somewhere. We like grey, dark or light, and also white.)
*Colors MUST be in sRGB color space (same for web & print)!
*No Adobe RGB color space!

/ MUST: be able to stand alone to identify the brand!

Do you have any other info or links you want to share?

We offer holistic wellness services (ie - massage & nutritional counseling) and full service nanny care.
We sell handcrafted & refurbished products for dogs & their people.

Wealthy. Hip. Serious pet parents (treat their pets as children)!

I have attached multiple photos of our company "mascot". We would LOVE to see her be the inspiration.

1.) No overused concepts - swooshy or geometric characters, etc. Nothing that "reminds you of something else". Nothing inspired by something else!

I would like a font & lettering that will show well on merchandise, including t-shirts.
By bild on 29-Jan-13 10:48 p.m. GMT
ATTENTION: -- ADD MORE WORDS -- I would like to see options with more verbiage (perhaps this will allow for more creativity & excitement)... Try using "because i love dogs" (lower case or capital letters) & "It's All About Your Fur-Child" (our tag line). Thanks. (Not necessary, but def. want to see something presenting this.)

Please make an orange dog the focus of your logo. Loving what I'm seeing with this! & thank you everybody for sharing your creatives with me. I am very excited to see this project develop!

To anyone newly submitting - please note - I really like the "organic" feel style designs. It helps present the "holistic, earthy" aspect of our company. Also, we're trying to avoid designs that are "too cutesy", as our client's are high-end. Nothing too bubbly or too "cartoony" - font or image. Need something that is unique, "looks expensive", but with ease & simplicity. Thank you so much for your entries!

Can I see creatives that include the full body of an orange dog? Also, creatives with simple font & "becauseilovedogs" all together? That's what I'm liking. Thank you.

We have decided to extend the close of this project so we can make certain all designs are thoroughly reviewed and our selection is carefully chosen. Thank you for your contributions and continued patience during this process.

Now that this project is approaching the end, we've pretty much narrowed in on what we are seeking. Here is a final wrap up of what we'd like to see for any last edits & new entries: an ORIGINAL design of an orange dog inspired by our company mascot, pitbull/cattle dog mix, Gingerbug (pics attached to project), showing personality, but not too "cartoony". Font should be simple & say "becauseilovedogs" all together, but presented with the "ilove" being in a different color than the rest of the font. Tag line shown underneath to read, "It's all about your fur-child". Everything needs to be in our colors (attached to the project): orange is a must. Can include any to all of the following colors, as well: deep purple, awesome green, grey, white, black. Thank you everyone for your participation!
