Logo Opinions Needed

Because BLW isn't just for lentil-weavers. Some of us like to piddle about with bits of felt and sticky-backed plastic as well.

Logo Opinions Needed

Postby KatGoldLIN » 19 Jun 2013, 20:57

I am running a free crochet workshop in partnership with a big online yarn store. I need a logo. Its called Crochet Camp. Does this work?

It will have writing etc, but I have to send it to their designers to do that bit.

It's ok, I like the crochet hooks :) To me at first glance it reminds me of a school summer camp logo, and not keen on the blue, sorry.

Could you have the crochet hooks in a ball of yarn? Or maybe a crocheted tent instead of the plain blue? A photo might be better than a drawing, is that possible?

Doesn't light my fire tbh.... Colour is a bit drab & too school like. Could you make it a different type of tent that's more yarn shaped?

Crochet hooks are good though, keep those!

Its supposed to look like a school summer camp logo - so I guess that is a good start. ;)

it needs to be a graphic file as its going to be viewed at about 200px wide. any more detail than this and it will be lost.

Could you try a purple, maybe not a solid colour.

Something like this http://theyeshiva.net/Content/Images/Te ... 0Image.jpg where the front of the tent has different hues (is that the right word?)

Where are you going to be camping?

I think the black in the doorway is a bit much. Maybe use a charcoal or something a little less stark? I'll run it by my graphic designer DH when he gets home... I like the concept a lot, I think it could be really nice with some tweaking.

ok, so here is a darker version (ignore the text)

and in purple:

and with a texture:

I am certain that I can make it a pattern (theoretically) but I have no idea how...*scratches head* My design experience goes something like - decide I need a logo, take a skillshare class, make a logo. ;)

I may just ship it off to their designers and say do what you will, but I worry they might turn it pink! ;)

I prefer the first revised darker one.

Purple's best. Cosier. The blue is too stark, the third one is too grey.

I like the first one in your last message best. More camp-like. Maybe you could make the black tent lines a different colour, like dark brown or dark grey so they don't stand out so much? Maybe.

I like the purple. I don't know why but purple seems a more crafty colour.

I agree about liking the top colour of new batch best. Could you texture the body of the tent to make it look crocheted or would that not show up at the print scale? Maybe just a tail of thread coming out the tent!
